NOTHING FISHY ABOUT THIS HOME

It sure takes a certain dose of imagination to be able to turn an old fisherman's cottage into a magnificent home like this one in a coastal town not far from Copenhagen. Between old and new, the medley of furniture is fantastic. The neutral color scheme—with sprinkles of red, copper and wood—hightens the warmth of the place. And what about that stunning concrete floor? I love how beautifully the dark tones they used accentuates the rich textures of the furniture. Happy weekend!

NORDIC CHIC DOWN UNDER

Looking at the beautiful Nordic style of this home you would think this gorg house is somewhere in Denmark or Stockholm. But I was pleasantly surprised to find out it's actually in Melbourne, Australia. With the quintessential Scandinavian color palette of black, white and gray, Whiting Architects created a stunning habitat. The occasional wooden accents around the house are the perfect touches to add warmth and spontaneity. I'm in love!

A SPLENDID AND REFINED LOFT

There were various challenges with the chaotic layout of this two-story Amsterdam loft. But thanks to a dramatic renovation by Architect Laura Alvarez, the rather claustrophobic space was transformed into a bright, airy, contemporary home that's to die for. The absence of color in the loft's bones is contrasted by the splendid use of color splashes in the furnishings and wonderful art. But if you ask me to choose a key element in the new space I'd have to pick the cantilever staircase that floats between the living and kitchen areas — it's a piece of artwork on its own.

BLACK MAGIC

Black is often a color not everyone falls for at first sight, especially when it comes to one's home decor. It usually takes some getting used to, but at the end it's a choice that most end up loving. There's something magical about this color that makes everything else around it pop and look super chic. The owners of this Hamburg home have used black exquisitely, especially in their kitchen. You might feel an all black kitchen is way too much, but after seeing these pictures there is a big probability you will be changing your mind — it's dramatic and quite stylish. Don't you think?

A MODERN TWIST ON THE PAST

The industrial trend seems to be stronger now more than ever. All the new home decor collections have taken some sort of inspiration from this retro, rustic style. I personally love this look as it's way of bringing back a bit of the past to our homes. IKEA has truly kicked some butt with their new RANARP lighting line — a modern twist of the vintage industrial lamps. The beautiful fixtures are made of white powder-coated steel, brass-colored trimmings and textile covered wires to complete the look. From pendants to desk lamps, the whole collections is to die for.

A PASSIONATE DECOR

His profound passion for architecture, music and fashion has evidently been an influence in Danish fashion designer David Andersen's home. His slick yet rustic pad is filled with amazing show-stopping pieces, like the fab African antelope taxidermy above the fireplace and the stunning tripod floor lamp in the living room. They add a bit of raw and industrial vibe to the minimalist home. Although David's palette of choice for the decor is mostly black and white (a man after my own heat), a subtle sprinkle of hot pink made its way on to the legs of the dining room table—a fun touch of adding an element of surprise. Double sigh!!

HIGH AND MIGHTY

Although white seems to be the color of choice in this fabulous Stockholm penthouse, it doesn't feel cold at all. The beautiful rustic tile floors, the wooden architectural details and the eclectic collection of furniture adds enough warmth to this attic apartment. Besides, this big white canvas opens up the possibilities to any decor style. It's fantastic. Happy weekend!
