For those that have been on my recent ‘Masterclass’ course will recognize this picture! We talk about adding something odd ball to our interior. Something that will create a conversation or catch the eye! Whether it is a sculpture, artwork or something outrageous like hanging a stuffed ducks head on the wall like in this picture, we need more fun in our home. (May not be for animal lovers out there in the world – sorry if they find this offensive.) But my point is -humour lightens the mood in any space and because life is way too short to stick to ordinary boring interior rules!

Have fun whatever you do!!
More and more people are going for the all in one open plan living rooms. The bigger the better is the motiv but how is it to furnish the room. I like to move furniture away from the walls and try to create obvious zones. A sofa, chair or table at an angle will break up the linear aspect of a room. By retaining a single colour palette will the furniture be highlighted and makes as well the transitions between the different zones glide more into each other.
I found a picture recently which shows a good example of a family living in New York. The colours and the relaxed atmosphere to this apartment is absolutely sensational! You can follow the link under the picture to find more pictures of the apartment. Enjoy!
Have a happy day everyone:-)
Well it’s really getting the best out of all your worldly loved treasures. Styling them. And we have many of them, right! Sometimes everything can look like an off loading dock! And that’s how NOT it should be done. It’s all just thrown together, on an off chance that it may look okay.
Maximize! I think you should show off everything that you love, BUT keep it interesting and unexpected and keep it airy! Layers of objects are an fantastic way of building up the area, giving all objects a history. And by all means keep it organized. I have found some great example pictures here of what I mean.
Happy weekend everyone:-)
Interiors should be a visual delight for the eyes. A home should say something about you. A home is your safe place where you can let your hair down and basically hang out in all ways you wish. I normally love interiors with a bit more oomph and guts but this place below there’s something that grabs me. It shows quality not quantity. It’s very minimal (God only knows where they store everything) simple and harmonic.
Definitely a relaxed hip pad. Love it.
Have a great day and thanks for dropping by :-)
Big love Lisa
Simple…uncomplicated…relaxed and delightful entrance rooms.
Have a wonderful and inspiring tuesday…
Ok I might be a little bored with all this symmetry stuff in interiors. That there has to be two lights or even two sofas that are the same in a room. Well I would like to ruff it up a bit. I see many prefer the safe, risk free, predictably symmetrical interiors and that is what we all see in all the interior magazines out there in the world. But let’s face it we’re in danger of being boring. We have to slip loose.
I want personality. I want guts. I want people to show me what they are made of. When creating your own interior you make your own rules. Find a balance with colours, use oversize objects, place objects at different levels, use layers, move furniture to different areas in the room, use odd lighting together, create an energy, create an awesome pad!
I love this picture above. May not have enough seating but the space is awesome!
Have a great thursday.

I dig this picture today. It’s all in the way you put everything together that sets the mood in a room. It’s unexpected, unpretentious and coincidental. Let the interior you live in show what type of person YOU ARE and not somebody else. Forget the perfect room go for a room bursting with personality that tells me all about you. Loving it!
Happy day everyone.
I have been recently trying to find some wallpaper lately for a client, which has a 3 dimensional look. I came across this wallpaper with books and with wood paneling all in white. Love it. It gives a room more depth, looks real and at the same time very elegant. Now this would be fun to use…

Happy weekend everyone and I’ll see you next week.
I find myself very fascinated with this living room below and had to share it with you. There are just so many interesting details to this room I just don’t know where to begin! The lemon walls with the beige silky curtains. The pictures hung tightly over the top of the windows. The chunky wood base furniture with the classical reading chairs in the back ground. Check the Scandinavian pendel lamp-shade and the brassy French metal floor lamp in the foreground. Lemon, gold, beige and black. What a mix! And I love the linen coloured floss rug on the polished concrete floor. Here lives somebody with an eye for detail.
Thanks for dropping by…have a great weekend:)))
