Shelter7, private apartment for rent in Ghent, Belgium


Shelter7 is a private apartment and meeting space for short-term rent, located in the historic city centre of Ghent, Belgium. The three level house has been beautyfully renovated and furnished with a mix of vintage and designer furniture (with names as Joe Colombo, Mathieu Mat├ęgot and Arne Jacobsen) carefully selected by Frederic Hooft and accessories by Veva van Sloun, from the online concept store I/Object. The interior architecture is also a mix between classic and modern, with old wood staircases and floors contrasting with clean lined concrete and metal.

Styling competition with Vipp, Copenhagen




One of my personal highlights during last weeks DesignTrade blog tour was the visit we made to Vipp's flagship store. They had prepared a styling competition for us, where we were divided into three teams. I ended up together with Desiree from Vosgesparis and Anna from La Maison d'Anna G. Perfect match, don't you think?

Loft in Lodz, by Tamizo Architects


 

I just found Tamizo Architects, a Polish architectural firm, on Lotta Agaton's blog. The top four pictures here are from one of Tamizo's latest projects, the interior design for a 64 sqm loft apartment in Lodz, and the ones below are from older projects. The pure graphic lines are quite striking, and it all comes across as very Scandi inspired, don't you think?

Minimalism in Helsinki


 
 
Today I want to take you on a visit to this Helsinki home. The place is minimal, not only in size but also in style. Very clean, but with some fun added through the patterned wallpaper and colored insides of the lamp shades.  The metal chairs with net seats are my favorites, designed by Motto Wasabi.

Lovely inspiration in this apartment for sale in Gothenburg, Sweden!
 
I will try to keep the blog updated next week, but since I am going to Copenhagen on the Design Trade blog tour with a super full schedule, and then moving to my new apartment, I can't promise daily posts. I hope you understand!

Danish home features for sale!


Last autumn I went to Copenhagen together with Annaleena to shoot some homes for a project we had planned. However, that project never happened, because both our careers took off in different directions and we could never find the time to realize our plans. So here we are now with hundreds of great pictures that deserve a better destiny than being hidden away on our hard drives! Perhaps someone would be interested in publishing them?

Handmade Finnish kitchens by Carpenter Collective



I just found these in my inbox, and thought they were too nice not to share with you. Cargo kitchens are designed by Kaisa Luukkanen of Carpenter Collective and hand made by skilled carpenters.
