Today is the first day of spring, but thanks to a snow storm last week there is still a ton of snow on the ground. Winter may be on it’s way out but it seems determined to not go quietly. Normally, by this time of year I am winter weary and dreaming of the warmer weather but this year I have decided to enjoy the last few weeks (hopefully not longer) of winter weather by taking some time to slow down, to nest and breathe.
Today’s Inspiring Interior is reflective of my current, more relaxed state of mind. Located in Stockholm, this apartment is the epitome of chic yet understated Scandinavian design. Large windows offer beautiful views of the city while drenching the apartment in natural light. The colour palate is a sophisticated neutral combination of greys, whites, creams, blacks and light wood. Designed by the talented Pella Hedeby, this apartment is the perfect refuge for a winter weary soul like me. A girl can dream…..

When I was completing my certification in Interior Design, I never thought about using concrete in my design choices. Over the past year though, I have been enamoured with all of the design portfolios that I have seen that predominately feature concrete as part of the overall design. When I first saw today’s Inspiring Interior, it immediately captured a piece of my design loving heart.
Located in Victoria Australia, the designers received a commendation from the Victorian Architecture Awards (2016) for this carefully crafted piece of architecture. The timber, brass and gold details add a level of warmth and sophistication while the white marble contrasts beautifully with the concrete to produce a stunning yet laid back family home. Light filled and spacious, the lines between indoors and outdoors are blurred creating a calming yet charming space. The entire home is gorgeous, but I am obsessed with the kitchen in particular. The combination of the statement marble backsplash and concrete island with the black cabinetry and appliances is sheer perfection. The modern gold hood and lights help to elevate this space to a level of creativity I rarely see. It is the perfect place to inspire and encourage creative and delicious new recipes.
