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!

A LAID BACK CONCEPT

One of the things I loved most about my trip to Amsterdam a few years back was the amazing variety of design and concept stores around town. It was really hard not to stop and peek in to see what each had to offer. It was a shopping paradise for the design aficionados. Actually, a new gem was recently added to this marketplace. The brand Yaya recently opened their flagship store in the Dutch capital and from what I can see in these pictures it's to die for. Designed by Dutch stylist and interior designer AnoukB, the decor has an eclectic/industrial look to it that gives the shop a casual flair that's rather delightful. Hmm, I've always wanted a reason to go back to Amsterdam, and this might be it. Wouldn't you agree?

DANISH DESIGN TO LOVE

I can already feel the crisp air of Fall in the mornings and the bright Summer sunlight has started to transition into a softer and more subdued color palette. And with it the Autumn/Winter 2013 home collections have begun to show up in stores and online. One of my favorites this year is from the Danish house Ferm Living. Their collections is a bit edgier than in the past with materials such as brass, wood, leather and marble in the mix. Ferm Living's iconic geometric shapes still play an important role for Fall and Winter but with a few new surprises that you will love. These are some of my favorite pieces from their catalogue, but there are plenty more to drool about in their look book. Trust me, it's worth browsing through just for their gorgeous vignettes. Enjoy!

WITH FASHION IN MIND

Inspired by the strong graphic style of fashion designers Rick Owens and Damir Doma, fashion stylist Sofia Ragnwald Odier and fashion photographer Nils Odier renovated this old farmhouse into a sleek country home for their family. They decided to replace their big city life in Stockholm, with a quiter and more relaxing lifestyle in the countryside to be in touch with nature and offer their kids more space to live and play. Their mostly black and white decor is offset by beautiful wooden furnishings and an collection of whimsical accessories that add that glimpses of their personalities to the home.

THE POWER OF BLACK

I've always had a crush with the color black. Probably for it's strong and bold presence among other colors in the spectrum. It's such an easy hue to work with since it's one of the few colors that tie everything together in a room. Whether used as an accent or as the primary color in interiors, black always conveys sophistication and modernism. This sharp-looking house is one of the properties shown in Housing Fair Finland. I love the fact they used black as the predominant color in this home's decor. Although some might feel it makes it look impersonal and cold, the addition of wood furnishings throughout adds the right touch of warmth to each of the rooms. By the way, I would have never thought of painting the ceiling black, but I applaud them for such a bold move. Quite the stunner!

FARMHOUSE CHIC

The weekend is finally here and I'm getting ready to go upstate to check on a project I've been working on for the last few months (a very exciting project I will be sharing with you down the line). We'll be spending the night at our friend's beautiful country house, what sort of inspired me to feature this sweet, turn-of-the-century farmhouse. Every room is classically rustic where white and soft natural tones intermingle with the rich textures of wood and leather—creating an exciting feeling and a wonderful mix. The perfect setting for a relaxing weekend. Have a great one!
