Spring cleaning

The winter is over. In this week spring season starts. It is amazing how a little bit of sunshine and warm weather affects my energy. Last week we had a sunny blue sky and the first colorful blooms.

Natural Wood

I love the use of plywood throughout the home. Plywood and other manufactured wood building materials are like the undergarments of architecture. The grain of plywood panels provides a natural touch of pattern. I find the simple and raw unfinished look extremely alluring. Do you include natural wood as a design element in your home?

In this home office plywood makes a warm and modern space together in combination with a string shelf and an Eames chair.

Plywood tends to show up in mostly functional spaces like this kitchen with black fronts.

The entire interior of this bedroom is made out of plywood. It looks so cosy and perfect for relaxing in the cold winter days.

In the middle of the winter, when we have grey and gloomy days, it is important to know that marble can light up your rooms and is a big trend these days. I prefer it with minimalist design. I think these material coming from nature can bring style, class and sophistication to your interiors. So you can make a statement.

Fornasetti art

At my home, we have three Fornasetti plates as wall art in the dinette. Here is more inspiration for wall art with Lina Cavalieri, as motif. For example in a white practicable kitchen together with a vintage bar cart.


This is a great example of eclectic design with mid century modern console ikea stockholm table, white Sebastian Wrong spun T1 Table Lamp, white vases and Fornasetti plates wall art.


The black and white ideas of Fornasetti are all over this kitchen.


Shiny reflections

I like metal objects very much. In the dark season, rooms get a radiance from them.

In front of muted color walls you can create a mystic universe.


Together with structure, metallic shine creates a unique combination.
