I never liked them. I never wanted them in my home. I always thought why on earth they have to look like something that belongs to a garage or a storage room. And the ones which actually looked pretty at that time were way over my budget. So I gave in because I couldn’t live without too. I did hide them in my bookshelf, surrounded by lovely beautiful books. Until…. the industry discovered the niche and I felt comfortable enough to expose what we call “loudspeakers”.

Vifa did a pretty good job here. Their portable loudspeakers suit every home and look like a sophisticated little shopping bag. Bang & Olufsen even offers their Beolit in pink for ladies or through and through black for men. Speaking of men, Sonos was our choice (respectively his choice) and I totally like the cute Play:1 in white.

I truly hope that television designers got inspired by loudspeaker designers and follow their path to create a living room suitable (not black) tv for ambitious home owners.

oh it has been far too lang since my last post. I know. And I will not come up with excuses and apologies and bore you… instead I would like to share my latest (re)search for the perfect couch table for our living room. Since I am huge fan of white marble I am considering to invest in a marble couch table. But my latest web search shows: it is not that simple. Round, square, frame made out of steel or copper, white or gray marble, size, height? Soo many questions and so many different brands and versions. But hey, an investment is never an easy decision 😉

I don’t know how they do it but the Danish always meet exactly my taste when it comes to interior design. Never ever found a single apartment online I would not want to exchange mine for (okay, this is certainly overdone).
Love the dark wall color in combination with the wooden and white furniture and the perfectly placed accessories. And the tree fits so perfectly into its surroundings I would not mind having him there throughout the whole year 😉

Is it yet time for some X-Mas inspiration?

Sure. With a little more than one month to go until the festivities begin, I think it is absolutely appropriate to share some of my favorite Christmas decorations here on the blog. Broste Copenhagen, a Danish product designer, interpreted X-Mas exactly the way I would want to decorate my apartement… pure, reduced but nevertheless cosy and extremely authentic. What do you think? Happy pre-x-mas!

#Midweekinspiration: Subway tiles & black floor

I know I know I know… it is far too long since my last post. But hey, I got totally inspired by this beautiful Scandinavian apartment – especially because of the white subway tiles in the kitchen (big fan) and the black wooden floor. I am working on my “what-I-want-if-I-design-my-own-house”-list and the tiles will definitely be on it:) Happy mid-week!

White and light. Do you grow out of this all white phase? Or do you grow into it more and more? I can’t tell, but I know for sure that every time I come across such an amazing light flooded apartment I regret not having more white furniture and accessories in my home.
