CONTRAST IN PLAY

There's nothing pretentious about this Swedish farmhouse. The renovation by Jonas Labbé and Johannes Schotanus of LASC Studio is all about experience and simplicity. I do love everything about this Summer retreat, but the stark contrast of the black and white exterior to the bold use of orange and turquoise in the interiors is absolutely clever.

CELEBRATING AN ICON

Someone is celebrating a landmark birthday—and it's not me. Actually, the iconic Hans Wegner‘s Shell Chair is turning 50 and to commemorate the event Danish manufacturer Carl Hansen & Son has partnered with textile company Maharam to create 20 new re-editioned Shell Chairs—each with a different textile and coordinating wood frame. Although it was hard to pick, these are some of my faves. I just love the fabric/wood combo on them. If you want to take a look at the other 13 just click here.

A PALETTE FIT FOR SUMMER

If you're a fan of color, particularly bold and bright ones, then you'll love the fun and cheerful palette used by interior stylist Susanna Vento in these whimsical vignettes. Pretty much any color looks amazing when combined with black and white graphic patterns, like she did here. So if you're in the mood for giving your home a fresh look, here's a dose of inspiration for that Summer makeover.

A LITTLE BIT OF MAGIC

It doesn't take much to convert your nest into the space you've always dreamt of. With a little creativity, some TLC and a gallon or two of paint, you can really do magic. That's what Sofia and Nils did when they moved into this sweet Stockholm apartment. Wanting to visually stretch the space, they painted the whole apartment, including the floors and trims, white. They also thought that by removing the old closets and creating custom built-in shelves to display their books and accessories, the apartment would feel more personalized. Like many DIYers, Sofia is a flea market junkie. She has a knack for spotting amazing finds she can later transform into cool-looking pieces to add to her industrial chic home.

TRAINING IN STYLE

I've always enjoyed working out, especially if I feel extremely motivated by the space I'm going to be spending part of my day exercising in. Most gyms are raising the bar when it comes to their look and services. They're trying pretty hard to make members feel special by creating a welcoming atmosphere. It's not just about how good the equipment is but how stimulating everything around them can be. Architect Andreas Martin-Löf designed this exclusive fitness club in a former post office building in Stockholm. He paid special attention to details to create a homey space where people can enjoy their workout to the max—and making a not-so-enjoyable chore for some more enjoyable. I would join this gym in a heartbeat.

A RUSTIC SURPRISE

It really doesn't take much to create a peaceful environment for your home. This charming flat in Stockholm is a perfect example of how simplicity combined with great taste can do a lot. They used the bones of apartment to highlight its beautiful original architecture. Their neutral color palette is enhanced by sprinkles of peacock blue spontaneously scattered around their home. But the most amazing feature in this Scandinavian home is the distressed pair of doors that lead to the bedroom—they add a cool rustic surprise to a very impeccably clean decor.

FLIPPING IT AROUND

Leave it to the fabulously ingenious Danish design and architect studio Norm to come up with such a cool multifunctional piece of furniture. The Flip Around Table for Menu is incredibly convenient for small spaces as it gives you the best of both worlds: a beautiful stool for extra seating and a table that can serve as a night stand or side table. How handy is that? I simply love everything they do.

FUNCTIONAL & CHARMING

This genuinely functional and relaxing Stockholm flat is characterized by an instinctive sense of light and openness—a Scandinavian design trait I simply love. The apartment is predominantly white which helps enhance the beautiful artwork and colorful collection of accessories. Although it's a modern and minimal space, the fireplace gives the apartment a touch of old charm, honoring the building's history.
