When I look for homes / interiors to feature I try to find ones that inspire with a certain lifestyle (a Swedish cottage by the sea, a magical mountain cabin or rustic country retreat for example). I also strive to find homes with a wonderful unique touch and bags of personality that are full of ideas. Today, it’s the latter in focus (I’m sure there’s a wonderful lifestyle here too!). I discovered Verena’s German home on instagram a few weeks ago (if you have the time check out her inspiring feed hop over to @vren1984) and immediately fell in love with the warm, relaxed feel. Verona’s eclectic home is the kind of place you can instantly feel at home. So, pull up a chair and enjoy the tour – I hope you’ll walk away with lots of new ideas for your own home!
Love the mix and match vintage dining set – it works because everything is made from wood. The sheepskins help to add a cosy touch.
A real life scene – how refreshing!
We drink the same Oatly Barista with our coffee – have you tried it? Word of warning, once you start, you can’t actually go back to milk. It originates from right here in southern Sweden!
An indoor swing – wonderful! We have one from Finnish brand Lillagunga in Ali’s room and it’s always been a big hit.
I love a packed bookshelf, do you? The other day on instagram I asked how people chose to organise their books. Many said by theme and then author, others said by colour or language. But best of all – one person said that their husband loves to spend hours organising books – organising them according to theme, and then if he thinks the authors would get along and have a good chat he’ll place them next to each another. How brilliant is that? You can see the post and read all the responses here.
Great to see a rug / blanket used as art. Instant cosiness and colour!
If you have the space – or like the idea of an open wardrobe, perhaps a DIY concept like this one could be something for your home?
I DID enjoy this tour, I have to say.
I hope you walk away with some nice ideas. Is there anything that stood out to you in particular?
Want to hang around for a while? Excellent! Why not check out:
