ever since my trip to coqui coqui in tulum i’ve been enamored with this magical balance between bohemian and a more modern sophisticated look. i love that vibe, and these rooms share it but with a bit more color. i’ve found a few rooms i love with an interesting combination — especially this one above from architectural digest espana. this color palette is not one i would have imagined, but i really like this look — a great color combo of tawny gold hues and teal and turquoise. pretty exotic combination, isn’t it? here’s a few more images with that very bohemian palette inspiring me at the moment.
Top to bottom, left to right:
- Leave it to this airy, modern Australian family getaway to take your breath away.
- We just couldn’t ignore the pure and simple way these potted cacti are lined up against the wall.
- A Merry Mishap beautifully encapsulates the ever-inspiring Toronto homeware shop, Mjölk.
- What a gorgeous smattering of art and greenery to complete the dining room.
- These pistachio meringue cookies are a delightful combination of crisp and melt-in-your-mouth.
always a fan of Helsinki-based stylist and interior decorator laura Seppänen’s work, i was most happy to receive an email from her sharing her latest and greatest collaboration with photographer Pauliina Salonen. this is the sweet two-room apartment in the very centre of Helsinki, completely renovated before the residents moved in and designed by Finnish interior architect Samuli Pöllänen.
all of the surfaces have been painted white, even the wood plank floors (swoon!). the couple who live here both work in creative fields and really love scandinavian design –they are half Finnish and half Danish, so they wanted their home to be a mix of both cultures. there’s even a bit of a Japanese vibe, with clean lines, scandi minimalism, and a neutral color palette. colorful details like loads of vivid graphics, boucherouite carpets and other small decorative items brighten up the space. the apartment is also filled with art books and every item has been carefully chosen, each with its own story. for more inspiration from laura, follow her on instagram.
this is a fun, industrial modern kitchen featured recently in elle decoration. i love the vintage look of the white subway tiles, funky mint green furniture and old industrial style lighting paired with the modern stainless steel appliances and countertops. i thought it might be fun to round-up a way to accessorize and get this look. here goes:
get this look: 1. IKEA’S RÅSKOG rolling cart; 2. schoolhouse electric’s factory no. 4 pendant lamp; 3. + 4. anthropologie’s clearie dining chairs and paired with a mix of their copper Brasserie Dining Chairs; 5. vintage farmhouse table from little cows; 6. vintage-inspired weck jar set from terrain; 7. smeg 2-slice toaster from west elm; and the Ion C-Series lamp from schoolhouse electric.
