swedish space.

swedish space / sfgirlbybay

don’t you just love everything about this fresh, modern space? this light-filled swedish apartment in gothenburg just looks so clean and serene. i think the dark stained hardwood floors are in high contrast to those high ceilings with their pretty crown-molding and all that lovely white, making everything just look so polished. there’s great little details everywhere you and i love the look of a few casual, well-worn leather poufs, too — warm, welcoming and inviting. when can i move in?

i’m seeing a whole lotta blue around lately. you, too? it seems to be on trend, but blue is also really a classic. there’s so many shades of blues to work with, from turquoise to cobalt to midnight blue. blue also blends well with a lot of other colors — from pink, to canary yellow, decorating with blue is a bold and beautiful choice.

french-inspired space / sfgirlbybay

i came upon this sweet space belonging to blogger Rubyellen of cakies on pinterest and had to share. it’s such a whimsical, happy home space, that seems very french-inspired. and even though it’s in los angeles, it seems like a home you’d find in provence, in the south of france — eclectic, warm and very cozy. my favorite, piece de resistance is that vintage iron daybed — looks smashing with all those colorful pillows. what a wonderful mix! for the whole tour, visit cakies.

pin-worthy: irodorco / sfgirlbybay

hello friends, I do hope you are having a lovely start to the week. this week’s pin-worthy pic is a  no-brainer. take a peek at irodorco’s boards and i do believe you may have the same conclusion i did…romantic. i find this pinner from japan’s boards so incredibly beautiful, sultry, and romantic. romantic in a subtle way…finding it in the everyday; from the curves in a hand, to the way a bed is mussed or how perfect worn silver can appear by laying it out just right. the small moments.

there is no possible way i can say these are my favorites, because all of irodorco’s are favorites. randomly i choose these:

i always wish i could get the nerve up to do something really bold with prints. i love the rather exotic look of these — a little british plantation meets tropical panama canal. there’s some great textiles and wallpapers out there these days, like the rifle & co. pineapple print from hygge & west, and this amazing print above by KLAUS HAAPANIEMI. i think a perfect spot to go bold with a pattern like this is a powder room — freedom to go over the top in a room you don’t spend that much time in. baby steps, perhaps!
