INSPIRATION BLOG – what to do in 2019?

I’ve been a fan of subtle and minimal Scandinavian design and the calmth that comes with it for the last couple of years. It probably was a reflection of what I was needing at the moment. Working as a teacher means spending hours in a rather loud and commanding environment. Coming home to a calm and serene atmosphere was such a necessity, that it basically created itself. After both my grandmothers passing away last year and some health issues I dealt with our interior became more and more minimal. I’m finally starting to feel like myself again and I’m ready to make some changes and have some fun with colour and playful shapes and accessories.

I’ve created three moodboards, one in general for our dining- and living room area, one for our atelier/workspace we just created for ourselves and one for the colour story we are thinking about. Off course I used Pinterest for all my inspiration! I just started Pintresting and you can follow me on Pinterest here. Hope to see you there as well! And let’s share some inspiration!

Does this mean I’m changing it all completely? No, and I’m not planning to! I have a very neutral base to work with and I love the warm browns and beige colors we have going on. I’ve always had the tendency to go for a more serious, moody and classic style. I feel like letting that go a bit and just have some fun. Because of the neutral base we have it’s quite easy to add some subtle changes. As you can see we’re inspired by deep blues, subtle yellows and warm orange shades. Combined with modern, playful shapes. Still minimal, little hints of these colors and shapes in our home will make a more artsy space! And that what I am aiming for! Maybe even throw in a little lilac!
