To be very honest with you, I’m not a real big fan of the all white Scandinavian interiors you see a lot these days. In my opinion It’s so much of the same and often very predictable. I’de like to be surprised and inspired.
But this one caught my eye and I think is worth showing. This home belongs to Photographer and Stylist Line Kay, living in Oslo, Norway. Line keeps her home tidy by storing away unnecessary objects, she only shows the treasures who are really special to her.
Sounds very logical you must think but in my home it doesn’t seem to work that way. I’m a huge collector, I have loads of found treasures (yes, who are all very special to me), porcelain, magazines, books, pottery, vases, candles, you name it, I probably got it. Very nice, but I would like to be my home more like Line’s home, it looks so peaceful and relaxed. So this is my example, for creating a more calm and balanced interior. Less is more, I’ll keep that in mind.
Lately I’m obsessed with buying plants for my home. It makes a room so much more fresh and alive. I’ve selected a few of my favorites which are also really easy to care for.
I love Scandinavian design. In particularly the vintage Danish design produced in the fifties/sixties last century. What I also love are the great Scandinavian Brands of today, House Doctor is one of my favorites. Today I’ll show you some inspiration of their latest collection ‘Moments 2014′.
‘House Doctor welcomes you into a world of contrasts, of light and darkness, decadence and minimalism. Moments 2014 celebrates the beauty of imperfection zooming in on the essence of print, expression and design. Enjoy perfect Imperfections’.

Palomar Restaurant is located in the heart of London’s Soho district. The Palomar serves the food of modern day Jerusalem, with influences from the rich cultures of Southern Spain, North Africa and The Levant.
At the front of the restaurant you find a zinc Kitchen Bar, that overlooks the chefs. A mosaic marble floor leads you to the dining room at the back of the restaurant. The intimate space has a parquet floor, dark oak panelled walls, banquette seating in royal blue leather and features a skylight allowing natural light.
The new brand identity is designed by studio Here, a small team of multi-disciplinary designers based in East London. With the intention of conjuring up the ‘romantic and nostalgic feelings of bygone days’. The restaurant’s brand identity uses a contrast of hand drawn script and uppercase extended sans-serif typography. They’ve chosen for a light and dark color palette, uncoated paper and the gloss of a gold foil, to reflect the classic details of the restaurant’s interior. The new identity is looking very nice, love the color combination and the golden details. Also very lovely in combination with the marble tables.
