Living in white with black accents

Today some more VT Wonen magazine  I showed you some parts already of the things I loved most out of 2010. If you haven't seen them you can still read 'Best of VT Wonen magazin 2010'  and 'Part 2 Best of VT wonen'  Looking back at last year the September issue was definitely my favorite 

The first picture shows a combination I made with some pictures from the magazine.. the theme of September was Living in white ...with black accents. It showed some great homes in Black & White.

The first home is that of Tuula Pöyhönen a Finish fashion designer. She and her family live in an apartment in an old factory in Helsinki. Her home serves as her studio and even as her shop.


Ik heb al eerder geschreven over de (voor mij) mooiste artikelen en reportages uit de VT wonen van 2010. Heb je ze deze niet gezien dan kun je ze hier nalezen  'Best of VT Wonen magazin 2010' en 'Part 2 Best of VT wonen'  Terugkijkende op het afgelopen jaar was het September nummer mijn absolute favoriet. De eerste foto is een collage die ik heb gemaakt met foto's uit het nummer en zoals je ziet was het thema zwart en wit.. oftewel Wonen in wit, maar wel met zwarte accenten.  Het eerte huis is dat van de Finse mode ontwerpster Tuula Pöyhönen. Zij en haar familie wonen in een apartement in een verbouwde fabriek in Helsinki.



The next apartment is to be found near Copenhagen in a 19e century building where Pernille Hell combines Classic design, French Antics and flee market finds with a Black & White base.







In this issue also the new VT Wonen floor collection was presented. They have names with Loft Chalk and Olive in them and the pictures went all over the internet, most of the time without telling they were styled for this new floors. I am sure you recognize them!  The first picture was also used as the cover of the issue. Here you can see the whole VT Wonen collection





This edition also revealed the winner of the VT Wonen / IKEA competition. To win the price of 7000 euro  worth of  IKEA goodies you had to sent in some pictures of your home and tell them which piece of furniture you really would like to keep beside the new IKEA furniture you could win..

I also sent in some photos of my home and got an email saying I was selected as one of the potential winners  (I wonder if any of you can guess what the piece of furniture was I wanted to keep) .....


Okay I did not win and I understand why, when I see the beautiful house these people have. But I was really surprised when I saw the furniture they had won...

Do you ever play with the tables and chairs when you are at IKEA?... I do! It is the best way to see if they match together isn't it.? I happened to have arranged the same white chairs around the same white table.. of course only one! table would have fit in my home...   But yes... I still would like some of them !

Want to see more...  here is Part 1 Part 2 and Part 4
