A Country-style House in Sweden

A Country-style House in Sweden

The first thing that grabbed me with this house was the architecture. The beautiful arched doorways and windows dotted around the place (especially that balcony door in the bedroom) are pretty dreamy. They’re big enough to flood the rooms with light, and yet the many dividing pieces of wood running across...

When was the last time you had a real conversation with somebody you didn’t know? The Openhouse project began with Andrew Trotter and Mari Luz Vidal, who run a photography studio and B&B in the gothic quarter of Barcelona. “After one of the dinners we like to share to close an exhibition, I was sitting, talking with Mari,” says Andrew....

The Stropp Storage Hook

The Stropp Storage Hook

This unusual storage idea is the work of by Lassen, a design brand stemming from the work of the great Danish architects Mogens and Flemming Lassen. As well as owning the rights to the brothers’ creations, by Lassen regularly designs and launches new products in keeping with the original Lassen style. The company is partially owned by...
Student Vibes

Student Vibes

Here’s a cute little flat I found on Fantastic Frank yesterday evening. The kitchen really reminds me of the ones we used when I was a student, but in a good way! It sort of looks like a work in progress. The cabinets aren’t dissimilar to those you’d find in your first house, pre-renovations, and much of...

Watercolour Ceramics by Suite One Studio

More ceramics, more watercolours! These plates and bowls are part of an ever-changing collection of tableware from a small American design brand named Suite One Studio. “Few things make me happier than good food shared with good people,” says Lindsay Emery, who is the owner, designer and ceramicist behind the company. “I work to design...
Split-level Studio Apartment

Split-level Studio Apartment

The layout of this flat is kinda fun – the bedroom sits on a small platform above the living room, which is accessible by a little staircase and also houses a hidden closet. I’m not totally sure I could live with a black kitchen, but the living room I could quite happily transplant into my flat...

The Aether Cone Speaker

The Aether Cone Speaker

This is such a beautiful piece of kit! The Cone wireless speaker is a new-ish launch from Aether, originally debuted in the US in early 2014 and recently introduced to the UK. Its smooth, conical body is designed with the human hand in mind; the outside of the speaker is a handy dial which you can twist with...

South West England Meets Stockholm

South West England Meets Stockholm

Most of the homes I share on this blog tend to be in Scandinavia (usually Stockholm), simply because this is the part of the world that most closely reflects Decorenvy’s style. The apartments and houses in this area tend to be quite similar in their interior architecture – high ceilings, spacious rooms, but with plain...
The IKEA Kitchen, but not as you Know it.

The IKEA Kitchen, but not as you Know it.

The IKEA kitchen has become fairly ubiquitous thanks to its extensive options for customisation (hello 3D planning tool!) and widespread stores up and down the country. But the selection of cupboard fronts available on their website is, inevitably, a bit one-size-fits-all. If you’re not interested in either a wood veneer, white gloss or black, Superfront...
Tforia: The Directory of Independent Design Brands

Tforia: The Directory of Independent Design Brands

If there’s one thing Decorenvy loves, it’s uncovering interesting products from little-known designers. So imagine my delight when I accidentally stumbled on Tforia last week! This curated directory of interiors, fashion and jewellery brands is the perfect companion for people searching for an alternative to mass-produced products. The idea for Tforia began to form eight years ago when founder Tina Yang moved to New...
