The boathouse

Perched upon the shoreline, its face turned modestly to the water this modern reinterpretation of a previous 19th century Norwegian boathouse no longer provides a home for a boat but instead is now a summer place. Honest, simple, referential, almost reverential and very clever. As the weather warms the boathouse lifts its walls to the sun. Beauty in building, beauty in place, beauty in purpose. The boathouse by TYIN tegnestue Architects.

Muted mulberry

Scandinavian white walls anchored by dark floors. Muted mulberry and muddied browns flirt with slaps of black, dashes of blue, fresh flashes of cool green and slivers of silver. It's a sophisticated look, an elegant look, a muted maturity, a casual luxury by Wenche Holth of Suzani Interiør.

I will spend today thinking about the photo above. DREAMY.

Not so shabby

Not your usual Scandi boho apartment. Not the shabby chic meets edgy urban meets industrial with mid century splashed with neon bright colour / black, grey and wood with square tiles in kitchen and bathroom. (Have I left out any Scandi combinations?) Yes it's white but think easy elegance. Gustavian. Relaxed traditional. Old world, old money but in a bijou modern apartment. Not your ordinary everyday Scandi boho but instantly recognisable a Swedish none the less. Not so shabby at all. Link here.
