A Scandinavian home with grey walls & an industrial touch

Last week I posted a steel wall divider in a home makeover by vtwonen and a cute DIY to make your own | An industrial dream home X a steel wall divider by vtwonen & a DIY | If you liked it you will certainly love this Scandinavian home as well. It shows once more and in a wonderful way how you can separate a large space into two different rooms by adding a glass wall, using a black steel frame give the room a little industrial touch.

A black table setting | VIPP

When, like me, you love a good dose of black accessories at home I guess you will be really happy seeing these pictures. Vipp has designed a placemat to complete a table setting. As an alternative to traditional fabric placemats, it is developed from soft, perforated silicone rubber, and it is machine washable which make it even easier to use. A big yes to these and please include me this Vipp table I styled as well!

Drift by Fernando Mastrangelo

One of the moments I can think of how cool it would be to have a really big home... I would certainly have space for this beautiful raw bench made out of cement by Brooklyn based Fernando Mastrangelo, more at Wallpaper magazine about this and other heavy pieces shown at Art Gèneve by Paris design gallery James. More of Fernando's work can be found at his website, I personally loved his powdered glass sand mirrors: Fernando Mastrangelo

An industrial dream home X a steel wall divider by vtwonen & a DIY

If you are a regular reader of Vosgesparis you might have seen me talking about Dutch interiors magazine vtwonen before, in Holland we do not only have the magazine but also a makeover show on television made by the stylists of the magazine together with a tv presenter. I love to watch the program and thought I'd show you some pictures of the first episode of the third season. I previously showed you another industrial loft shown in the tv show | An industrial loft & a stylist make an amazing home|

A white bedroom with Dixxius bedlinen

Last weekend felt like spring and like most Saturday mornings I had a slow startup with a nice coffee, and some cleaning around the house. Waking up slow on weekends in my white bedroom really makes me happy, it was the first room I changed during the renovations and it was even whiter as it previously had white floorboards. Beside the floor and a lot of decluttering it hasn't changed that much.

The importance of styling | Lotta agaton X ArkDes

With Lotta Agaton being one of my favourite stylist for years it was no surprise Swedish Residence Magazine asked her to curate a selection of products by Note Design Studio for an exhibition of styled scenes at Stockholm's ArkDes architecture museum. I really love these kind of installations, and wish I could see it in real life.

Barn conversions and 1m2 stairs in small apartments


This old barn has been completely renovated and I love how many of the old elements are left in sight, brick walls just add something extra to a home that has been modernised. With the old details still in sight, you can almost feel the history of the building and imagine how people lived and worked here earlier.

Ethnic chic in a summer home down under

After having the flu for almost two weeks I finally got to clean my home and do some restyling over the weekend. I love this feeling when your home is all clean again, the laundry is done and your bed is changed with fresh white sheets, especially on mornings when there is plenty of light coming in my home.

Lots of light also in this Summer home in Auckland, New Zealand where different shades of grey and natural elements are combined with soft fabric, plants and the right dose of black.

To be honest I had never heard of Rex Kralj before and when reading their story I discovered they have a long history thanks to its pioneer and founder, Slovenian Niko Kralj. The forward-thinking inventor with an eye for clever solutions is regarded as a legend of 20th century industrial design. The collection consists of chairs, stools, coffee & dining tables and even a daybed.
