Trending …

Nordic Style 

one of my all time faves

because it focuses on simplicity

with the use of natural elements …

Wood,  Wool,  Leather and Stone.

Clean Lines provide a sophisticated edge.

Trending …

How Clever!

Industrial Design …

Masculine Elements

Worn Elements of Brick & Concrete

Interesting Artwork

Warehouse Pendant Lighting

The use of Metal & reclaimed Wood

x

via google

x

Industrial Chic …

Recognising the Romance in the Rough …

it requires a girlie injection

if there’s brick …

it will often be painted white

Accents of pretty colours & accessories

add a homely touch.

Industrial Chic…

Streamlined architecture 

adds a sophisticated edge

White furniture,

 curved lighting and chairs

provide the feminine touch.

Recognising the Romance

in  the raw, rough, reclaimed & worn …

 girlie accents …

together with modern clean lines …

Industrial Chic!

blue colour trend 2013

x

How stunnng is this room!

The pops of royal blue are a highlight for me

and can you see that this royal blue 

is much warmer than the cooler grey blues of late?

 Colour contrast …

paired with different natural textures

of wood, metal & wool

make for an exciting Design!

xx

xx

Here is another room

accessorisd with blue

but the warmer blues in the first pic have red in them …

they’re new, on trend …

and very, very striking!

x

xx

Not everyone can afford to change their interior

with each new trend 

so if you love blue …

keep in mind

that these new warmer blues

can be introduced in the way of accessories …

 bottle and flowers …

xx

 or just like in this industrial setting ….

think also cushions, rugs

vases, chairs & lamps.

A Church Conversion

xx

This church may seem traditional from the outside

but have a look inside …

you may be in for a surprise!

xx

xx

Situated in the Netherlands …

the church has been

stylishly converted into a contemporary home.

x

xx

A streamlined kitchen fits nicely with the design

and a funky red staircase adds fun and interest.

xx

x

Beside the staircase is the living area

and on the far wall 

is a guardian angel illustration …

x

x

xx

How perfect!

x

x

Here is the study …

x

xx

and such space

can even allow for a swing!

xx

xx

Upstairs …

leads to the mezzanine addition …

a Master Bedroom

cocooned in Charcoal …

xx

via: Contemporist

x

And with a freestanding bath …

could this be any closer to Godliness!
