My favorite quaint rooms

Sometimes in my research, I come face to face with rooms I cannot resist, they feel good at first sight,  and I would like to share them with you my lovelies.

This Copenhagen Loft designed by Tina Seidenfaden Busck is absolutely charming with its pink chaise longue and a colourful vintage rug, I feel I could lie down and read my

Elsie de Wolfe book ”The House in good taste”

Oh I love this Serge Mouille modern black floor lamp, it is totally erratic and has super lighting direction at the same time.

I cannot explore Scandinavian contemporary homes without showing you the traditional Gustavian Style of the 18th century invented by King Gustav lll of Sweden.

Gustav lll loved Interior Design, fashion and art. Looking at his clothes, it seems that they were a great inspiration for his Interiors. The Gustavian Swedes are not afraid to mix their woods, they also like pastel colours, blue, yellow, gray and white washed.

This brown and white room has lots of character, Artist Stephen Antonson has created the plaster chandelier above the dining room table and the different shape plaster candlesticks by hand. Somehow I see a Scandinavian influence in his work. Mixing wood dining room table and chairs with a painted white sideboard works very well.

This is a room of my own heart, it is entirely decorated with second-hand stuff, beautiful and very quaint, even the disemboweled armchair in the corner is charming.

In Milan, a traditional home with a modern look, renovated by Milanese Architect Giuliano dell’Uva. I particularly like the stainless steel book shelves in the kitchen, they had to be made to measure. Don’t you find It is always a challenge to store books in a kitchen.
