Sometimes it’s either black or white. You either like it or you don’t. It’s either hard and cold and impersonal or it’s clean and slick and modern. It’s monumental or monstrosity. Sometimes it’s also just a little grey. Although I couldn’t move in and be truly happy there are elements of this Melbourne home that I really like. The gardens, the concrete floors, the art, the space. Then the little voice in my head goes”nooooo… not for me”. Does it tick the boxes for you or do you want to close the door on it? I’ve been real estate stalking again. The link is here while it lasts.
A big thanks to Sonia who left us some links to Spanish shelter magazines – because I came across an incredible loft from www.micasarevista.com that I immediately fell in love with. OMG – it’s got everything. First, it’s a loft. You can’t go wrong with that. Then there’s white walls (my new favourite wall colour), a mix of modern and retro vintage furnishings, Tolix dining chairs, harvest dining table, metro shelving, cowhide rugs, funky artwork, Anglepoise lamp….when can I move in?!?!
Susann Larsson is an interior designer from Malmö, Sweden. You’ll know her as the creative force behind one of my most favourite blogs Purple Area. (I’m there everyday drinking it all in.) This is Susann’s home. Gorgeous! It’s quite minimalist, simple and clean but still a wonderfully warm and individual family home. Love that wall of books and yet another example that not all Scandinavian design is white. Oh no it’s all grown up grey in this purple area!
