Located in Copenhagen, this apartment belongs Anne Louise Breiner of BaLlab. There is a lot to love, like how she took a relatively small space and turned it into an open, comfortable home for her family. Probably because I have a bit of an obsession with chairs, and it’s also reminiscent of our home, I especially love the variety of seating (although she has a bit more invested in her collection). She also does a great job sprinkling in her secondhand finds, without going overboard on vintage.

A great place to find vintage inspiration (and fantastic photography) Old Brand New, posted this series of a home in Santa Monica a little while ago. I love everything about this place, and the feel of the photography only adds to the perfection. Click below to see more photos, and definitely head over to Old Brand New.
A while back The Selby posted this shoot at the home of Misha Hollenbach and Shauna Toohey, both artists and designers of P.A.M. As with all the The Selby’s work, I have looked through these pictures so many times and yet am still constantly inspired by them. I don’t know why I haven’t posted more until now. This home is one of my favorites. From the photos, I love the way the different spaces are intertwined with one another, each one literally overflowing with life. You can clearly see that each space is used thoroughly, every day, as a real home should be. To see more of this amazing apartment click the link below, and pay a visit to The Selby.
With its natural worn textures, electric accents, and experimental feel, this London flat feels more like a studio space than a home. The apartment is the result of a collaborative effort between the two artists, and wedding gifts from friends (note the Franco Albini Tre Pezzi armchair, and even the ash and oak floor complete with the carved names of those who helped install it).

Its funny that I just came across this home featured in a recent Dwell update, because I just read a book on Masculine Design. While I enjoyed the read, I thought some of it was a little obvious, and seemed a bit too stereotypical. I would be interested to hear people’s opinions on the idea of masculine design. Why aren’t other styles considered “masculine?” Not enough black? No oil stains? I can appreciate the idea of masculine design, but what is your take? If there is really such a thing as designing for the sexes, does it just come down to animal skulls, matte black, and dark wood finishes? And yes I know, the last picture is a bit cheese ball, I mostly just liked his shoes.
I hope everyone had a brilliant holiday this last weekend, nothing better than a long weekend with beautiful weather! Since we moved, our girls spend most of their time outside now and it has been amazing for them. Things are still coming together on the interior, but we have no shortage of ideas and inspiration like this fantastic Swedish home! I love the way photographer and interior designer Benedikte Ugland sprinkled modern touches throughout her rough and raw industrial styled apartment. The black floors, raw concrete, and brass combine so beautifully with her personal touches of texture to keep the interior from feeling cold and impersonal. These types of interiors are always so relaxing for me, where things don’t need to be kept in perfect order, and where dings and scratches might even enhance a thing (something that comes with the territory of having kids). Plus I am always a sucker for little bit of concrete.
