A Monochrome home tour

I might be in a minority here, but I’ve always thought that monochrome was a bit stark. I’m not hugely into bright colours either, but just sticking to variations between black and white seems so limiting, not to mention being quite harsh on the eye. If you described this house to me I’d probably hate it, but looking at the pictures, they’ve somehow pulled it off. It isn’t even a very big house – all the rooms are pretty small – but it feels so light and spacious.

The main thing I love about this place is the floors. Those whitewashed floorboards are pretty similar to what I have in mind for my future first home (a very long way in the future), and the dark brown boards in the bedroom are pretty dreamy too.

Some tips: you can get similar shelves to those awesome boxy ones by the stairs from Muuto, the laundry bag from Rockett St. George, and the throw on the sofa in the living room is probably this one from Leif.

Rustic meets contemporary

Today I wanted to share a tour of a cool little house that I spotted over on Bjurfors last week. This two-story home is in Malmö, Sweden.

What’s great here is how the owners have allowed the rustic elements of the home so much emphasis (namely the enormous wooden beams, the windows and the brick hearth) and yet still created something fairly contemporary. The stark white walls and whitewashed floors give it a very breezy, bright feel, whilst the odd traditional quirk adds personality. I’m not totally sold on the tartan curtains, but maybe we can let them slide.

If you’re reading this from the UK, you’ll very well know that the temperature here has plummeted over the last few days. On Sunday I had to break out my warm coat for the very first time, and now I’ve picked up the first stuffy nose of the season. Winter is truly on its way.

A lifelong hater of cold weather, I’ve started battening down the hatches and going into hibernation mode for the rest of the year. Here are some inspirations I came across this week in my quest to cosy up the house. I’ll see you in spring.
