Theia Lamp by Mathias Hahn for Marset


Sourcing lamps for a recent styling project, I found myself lingering over these beautiful images of the Theia by Marset. Designed by Mathias Hahn in 2016, the lamp's name is borrowed from the Greek goddess Theia – mother of the sun, the moon and the dawn. Featuring two intersecting half-spheres, the light has two faces which can be discovered by simply swivelling the fixture around its central axis. From light to shadow with a single gesture, it can be used as a reading lamp, or alternatively pointed towards an object or a wall, creating a subtle, indirect light that immediately warms the atmosphere. Available as both a Table and Floor lamp in either black or white, find out more about the beautiful lamps here.

How incredible is this bedroom and view? I also love the crockery (in the first image) by Max Lamb for 1882 Ltd

The Theia Table Lamp in white looks stunning aside the art work Museo De Art Abstracto by Eduardo Chillida. You can find similar pieces here and here. The Eduardo Chillida rugs are also incredible. This one here is a personal favourite.

Tone Cabinets by Norm Architects for Zilenzio

Norm Architects have recently finished Tone, a new collection of sound-absorbing cabinets for Zilenzio. Designed to absorb and improve sound in the spaces where needed, the stunning cabinets help create a balanced acoustic environment, making them perfect for the workplace or at home. Styled beautifully by Sofie Brünner, the collection's gorgeous range of colours were selected by the recently featured Note Design Studio. Shot at the stunning Kinfolk Gallery, it's quite timely for me as the incredible space was my main inspiration for choosing flooring for our downstairs living area this week. More on that soon!

Cane Furniture | Current Picks


Injecting a naturally textural element into the home, cane furniture has long been on my radar. I often talk about my love of the iconic Thonet and Pierre Jeanneret cane chairs but lately I've added a few more designs to my wishlist. While I love the classic mix of Thonet bentwood and cane, more recently I've been drawn to those that mix cane and chrome. In fact I dream of owning a whole dining set of cane and chrome chairs - these would do nicely! I've added a couple more of my favourite picks below. Over the last few years beautiful new designs have also emerged, with designers expanding on the cane theme to include sofas, desks, daybeds, beds and wardrobes. I particularly love the cane pieces from famed Danish-Italian Design duo GamFratesi whose work I featured earlier this year.

Still Loving Velvet


Yes it's a recurring theme but my velvet obsession is still going strong. With beautiful colour palettes, rich textures and a lot of covetable furniture and lighting pieces, these gorgeous images provide plenty of inspo to kick of the week.

I love all the warm, earthy tones. Velvet and brass makes a particularly tactile combo don't you think?

Beautiful New ESNY Offices in Gothenburg


A regular haunt of mine for inspiring interiors, Swedish real estate site ESNY recently opened the doors to their stunning new offices in Gothenburg. Very much in fitting with their high end aesthetic and incredible listings, the space has a sense of grandeur with interiors that ooze luxury. Steel framed doors and windows provide a bold framework while timber elements and natural stone add warmth and texture. Beautiful design pieces in velvet and mirrored glass further enhance the airy space. Featuring some of my favourite seating from Gubi including the Stay Sofa and Lounge Chair and Beetle Chairs, I love how the layout has an apartment feel. The defined areas are anchored by beautiful rugs by Kasthall

Recently I shared a photo of a petrified wood tray in the kitchen at Lotta Agaton's recent Trend Exhibition. Its unique and intriguing beauty sparked my interest so I was very happy to receive an email from the person behind the piece, Nikodem Calczynski. A collector who gathers the things that catch his eye and fulfil his curiosity, Nikodem is the founder of the recently established ODEM ATLIER in Stockholm. 

With a focus on timeless design and fusing the past with the present, Nikodem collaborates with innovative artists to produce decorative artifacts for the home. Aimed at those who appreciate the finer aspects of life, including the miraculous beauties of nature, his first collection is the all-inspiring and wondrously magic Indonesian Petrified Wood. Over six million years old and carefully excavated by farmers during the rainy season, ODEM's hand picked Petrified Wood is of the highest quality from deep underground in Indonesia. Naturally unique, every fossilised piece collected is a rare art form showcasing the fascinating imperfections that lie beneath the surface of the earth. 

The Petrified Wood pieces have an organic and raw unearthed beauty that is truly exquisite. A slice of decadence for any room of the home, they would make the most luxurious centre piece. I'm in love! 

Along with the Petrified Wood pieces, ODEM curates a careful edit of beautiful objects and ceramics by other artists. To see the full range visit the newly launched Webshop

Three Beautiful Bedrooms with Workspaces


It's not uncommon to see workspaces in the bedrooms of Scandinavian homes, especially compact apartments. When there isn't enough room for a dedicated workspace, the master bedrooms are often large and airy enough to create a space that is personal, but also and private and free from household distractions. If your bedroom is also a little tight on space, it is still achievable, as demonstrated in this first home. The long, narrow DIY desk faces the window and combines a beautiful dark timber work top and metal filing cabinets. On top sits the exquisite Taccia Lamp by Flos which gets me every time. The wall between the kitchen and bedroom has been replaced with a floor to ceiling bookcase which enhances the openness and sense of space in the small but stunning home.

Fitting into the large and airy bedroom category mentioned earlier, this light filled bedroom easily accommodates a work space. Vintage desks fit perfectly with older style homes, while the natural timber of the Wishbone Chair ties in with the Ikea Sinnerlig Pendant to create a cohesive look.

Understated and elegant, the soft grey palette gives this bedroom and workspace a serene feel. The perfect surroundings for promoting productivity while working!
