Inspiring Interior

Today’s Inspiring Interior is a small space with a lot of style.  Located in Kiev, this compact (484 square feet) apartment was tastefully designed by MARTIN Architects.  The owners intended to use this apartment as a rental so it needed to have universal appeal to attract potential renters.

Despite not being a very large space, the abundance of natural light and open layout makes this apartment feel much larger then it actually is.  The bedroom is partitioned off from the rest of the apartment by a glass wall allowing natural light from the bedroom window to brighten up the entire apartment.

The colour palette is kept neutral with greys, blacks and brown but a aqua green accent colour has been incorporated throughout the apartment upping the style factor on this gorgeous space.

My favourite part of this apartment though is the kitchen.  The exposed brick wall was painted black to contrast with the light floors – it’s positively swoon worthy!

Trendspotting – Fall Florals

Floral patterned clothing is normally reserved for spring.  They add a freshness and a softness to the wearer’s outfit marking the change of seasons after a cold hard winter.  My personal style tends to be a little bit more simple and edgy so florals rarely make an appearance in my wardrobe – the one exception is if I find a darker floral pattern that I can integrate into my wardrobe.  Thankfully this fall darker florals are trending in a big way.  From jackets and dresses to blouses and bombers, fall florals are everywhere this season.  The darker, more muted colours blend seamlessly with other fall trends such as red clothing and accessories , velvet and gorgeous suiting 

Fall florals can work for most people’s styles – the key is to pair it with things that you already own and love.  I love to toughen up the look by pairing it with darker denim, leather jackets or leggings and booties.  Here are some of my favourite fall floral looks this season.

Trendspotting – Velvet Crush

Love it or hate it, velvet has the power instantly elevate an outfit.  Because it has such a distinctive look, velvet tends to either be trending or just completely outdated – there is no in between.  I love that velvet is currently trending this fall, but that unlike previous seasons when velvet was popular, this season’s looks are edgier, cooler and a lot more streamlined.  Many designers sent velvet looks down the runway for Fall 2017 but my favourite by far were the gorgeous pant suits from Tibi and Altuzarra – love it! Here are some of my favourite looks featuring the velvet trend:

Trendspotting – Well Suited

Although my personal style is quite casual, I have always loved a good pants suit.  Maybe it’s because my mum is very particular about dressing professionally and wore a blazer to work almost every single day, but there is something about a great suit that gets me every time.  I was understandably thrilled when pants suits began trending again.  For a while there, ill fitting, dull coloured suits were the only options that most women had unless they were willing to spend an exorbitant amount of money, but now the tide has thankfully changed.

Skinny pants, oversized blazers, cropped pants, fitted jacket – they are all trending and they look fabulous!  Different fabrications and patterns help the wearer express their own individuality without having to say a word.  Paired with sneakers, block heels, t-shirts or chunky knits – the options are limitless and pants suits are now a great way to showcase your style and personality in a unique and chic way.  Thankfully this trend will be continuing into Spring 2018 and I cannot wait to see fresh takes on this classic trend!  Here are some of my favourite looks featuring the fabulous pants suit:

Inspiring Interior

Judging from the amount of Inspiring Interiors blog posts that I have done on Swedish designs lately, it would be safe to say that I have a deep love for Swedish interiors. Today’s post is no exception.

Located in Stockholm, this stylish one bedroom flat is a minimalist interior designer’s dream.  The wood furniture highlights the beauty of the herringbone wood floor and the bright white kitchen is chic yet unfussy.  The dining nook is an ideal spot to host friends while the little balcony is the perfect spot to enjoy the weather.  Overall, what this apartment lacks in size more then makes up for it in design.
