wishful wednesday [hus & hem]

by kmcopeland

I saw this home a while back at Hus & Hem, and I keep coming back to it. It’s so light, airy and happy, I can’t help but be cheerful when I look at it. And, as you know, I’m really feeling these soft pastel colors right now. What’s equally impressive to me is how color coordinated the entire house is. I’m way too ADD to do this, so this woman’s ability to stick to it just impresses the shit out of me. She even matches her outfits to her house. That, my friends, is dedication.

wishful wednesday [deko]

by kmcopeland

This week’s installment of wishful wednesdays features a home from Deko, a Finnish magazine I found through this blog that I love.  Things I love about it include: 1) that they put their records on display and have a giant A on their wall (you might also remember that I’m really feeling this color palette lately);

2) the chevron floors (duh) and painted legs of the dining room table (a nice alternative to the painted chairs that you see so often these days);

3) the light, bright and airy kitchen;

4) that amazeballs wallpaper that I want likerightnow;

5) that ridiculously cute elephant vignette and monkey hook in the kids room; and,

6) everything about the simplicity and rustic feel of this balcony (porch?).

This lesson is concluded.

It’s Black. It’s white.

You know it, uh-huh. Scandinavia appears to be rubbing off on me. I’ve never been one to embrace such a sparse color palette, so my attraction of late to black and white rooms with natural and wooden accents can only be attributed to the overwhelming popularity of this aesthetic in my new homeland. In defense of the trio, these rooms look so clean and thoughtfully pulled together – I just can’t get enough.

I’m shocked at how downright cozy they all make me feel. Perhaps I need some black, white and wood in my life!

Lägenlove

by kmcopeland

This week’s featured flat has no chance of every being a reality for us, but it is too awesome not to share. Blogger Lotta Agaton is looking for a new home and posted pictures of this one last week. I love the high ceilings, the huge windows with amazing views and the pops of orange and yellow throughout the house. One can always hope…

 

 

 

 

Good news: it didn’t work for her family so it’s still available! Happy bidding!
