Inspiration from IKEA


A little peek at what's on the way from IKEA today with beautiful styling by Amanda Rodriguez. A big fan of her work, I love the simplicity and soft colours. I'm looking forward to seeing more!

Beautiful Summer Styling with Indie Home Collective


No one does an effortless, boho-style summer quite like Indie Home Collective. Natural materials, woven accents, striking photographic art and lush foliage provide the perfect elements for creating the modern organic look that the NZ-based interiors store has become known for. A black plywood feature wall adds contrast and texture to the white-washed space and I can never get enough of those sun-speckled white-washed floors.  

Some of my favourite pieces currently on offer at Indie Home Collective include the Vittoria Square L-Shaped Sofas, the Natural Sisal Floor Cushions and the Fringe Lampshade. I also can't go past their range of textile products including the beautifully textural Throws and Cushions and luxurious Linen Bedding. In addition to furniture and homewares, Indie Home Collective stock a growing collection of Lifestyle products. The new Raffia Shoppers and Bird & Knoll summer cover-ups are perfect for beach days.

New + Noted


Norm Architects have designed a beautiful bathroom series for Inbani called Prime. Inspired by antique metal bathtubs and sinks with traditional rolled edges, the new designs are made from contemporary materials, but with the soft poetic appeal of the antique tubs. The soft shape of the new bathtub and sinks resemble that of a water filled balloon, thus creating a natural shape that is both inviting and familiar, yet also modern.

Oslo-based company Northern Lighting have released a stunning new collection in collaboration with  talented designers both emerging and established. My favourites include the adjustable floor lamp 'Balancer' designed by Yuue, a German based duo made up of Weng Xinyu and Tao Haiyue and the 'Circle', a fresh, contemporary take on the traditional chandelier by Finnish designer Hannekaisa Pekkala.

More Pedestal Inspiration + My Own DIY


Last year I mentioned I was trying to source a pedestal for home. Inspired by the two dining room pedestals featured in that post, I then saw this incredible home belonging to fashion editor Claes Juhlin and Michelle Zetterström. Understated elegance at its best, I absolutely love the simplicity of these white pillars in their living room.

Understandably the beautiful space re-ignited my search. I wasn't having much luck but then yesterday I came across some outdoor plinths at my local plant shop. Choosing one made from metal with a concrete-look finish, I was inspired by my mood board below and decided to paint it in a light grey colour.

A couple of coats of Dulux Midhirst Half (left over from my office) and I'm really happy with the result!

Located in Antwerp, Belgium, Magazyn is an interior store owned by Thomas Haarman. The art director turned store-owner sources a range of minimalist products for the home including hand crafted wares, as well as recently launching his own furniture line. Very much in fitting with the Belgian design aesthetic made famous by architect Vincent Van Duysen, the store's simple design is complimented by a calm palette and the use of natural materials. With textured stone benches, rows of open shelving and gorgeous wares, it would be near impossible to wander past without going in. Leaving empty-handed would also be a challenge!

Tine K Home SS17 | Boho Collection


Happy New Year! I hope you've had a great start to 2017. I am still very much in holiday mode, soaking up every moment with the family while my husband is still on leave this week, but it's never long before the blog starts calling. I know that it's winter for many of you, and I'm really enjoying seeing all the beautiful snowy images on the other side of the world on Instagram. In contrast, we are all about the summer vibes around here, and as such I can't help but be drawn to dreamy holiday resorts and poolside locations. The latest Tine K Home Catalogue for Spring Summer 2017 has just been released, and shot on location at La Granja Ibizait offers the perfect inspiration. Featuring beautiful new homeware, lighting, furniture and lifestyle pieces, the natural elements and bohemian style of the collection look right at home in this gorgeous resort setting. 

Perfect for both indoors and out, I love the relaxed look of rattan furniture layered with textural throws and cushions. Other favourites from the collection include the clay pots which come in a variety of sizes, colours and finishes, the extensive range of woven baskets and beautiful new cotton tunics, blouses and shirts. See the full catalogue here
