The Sunday morning pure basics

Sunday morning is the best. The sleep in of the week, lacy morning and breakfast in bed, or in the kitchen with fried eggs and soft music on the radio. It´s very easy to add a little luxury feel to it, like clean bed clothing, fresh flowers from the market the day before, and a clean kitchen for a good start..

My activities today will be sewing, as I have a pile of vintage fabrics waiting to be transformed. My best receipt for home decoration is to keep it clean and simple, and add only good, honest materials like rustic wood, heavy linen and personal belongings like photos and books.

Enjoy your day!

August

Not ready to say goodbye to this summer vibes yet?  I´m totally in love with this August mood. Keep the inspiration of nature and summer as a fresh base, and the scheme would work for every season to come. Get the inspiration from the colour of the sea, sand, long light evenings, flowers, light wood and bright coloured tiles...
Working with light materials as a basic always look fresh and up to date, and makes it easier to use richer colours and patterns in every room if you like. My best advice is to keep the basic colour palette limited, and also select materials by heart. The only good pattern or texture is the one YOU love. Think natural textures and durable solutions when hunting for your favourites. Here are some helpful keywords to get my late summer mode and make it a stayer: Light wood, straw, white sofas, light blue, green, light gray and various neutral linens of course.

Summer house blues

What a special summer this has been. Every morning like a blank canvas; bright and sunny. It`s hard to imagine it will ever change, it`s so easy to get used to it. For me, the perfect summer holiday is slow mornings with black coffee in an old half broken cup, used by a few generations. shabby colourful cottage furniture combined with blend white comfy sofas (thank you Ikea;) Summer flowers collected at a morning or evening trip along the sea, and a breakfast with fresh fruit.

Family and friends going in and out, extended dinner table every evening , and a proper swim at least twice a day. So in sum, this has been the best holiday. 

Enjoy the even better part of the summer, August!

The light home of a Scandinavian

Photo and styling by Ha Interior design.

The personality, talent and danish genes of the owner of this home are evident throughout this modern, light and airy London house. Some clever architectural features like roof windows and glass walls between rooms creates a modern look, and clever use of colours ties it all together. By keeping walls and ceiling in a pure white, with all window and door frames in dark grey,  the architecture stands out, and gives good opportunity to play with art and colours without stealing any light. 

It´s visible that the owner has adopted a certain style from her upbringing with a Danish mum, and Danish classics. Melted together with warm and textured furniture and soft furnishings. Take a closer look on details from this lovely "light house".

London home makeover

See how we changed the look of this London house. By introducing a new colour palette, new soft furnishing and curtains and some new furniture you can see the transformation below. Some existing belongings has been rearranged to a new spot, maybe had a stroke of paint. We also went to the antique market to find chairs, a stool and some decorative items. See after and before photo`s below.

Some tip how to kick off your project

As with most processes of change, I think the most difficult part is where to start.  So a visual plan might be what you need. Make yourself a mood board, by tearing out photos from magazines and glueing them to a piece of cardboard. Take everything that inspires you, like colours, materials, art, nature… inspiration can literally be found everywhere. Alternatively,  create your mood board digitally, which is easier to adjust as you narrow down your choices. Using PowerPoint or a similar app, take screenshots as you browse your favourite designers online, and paste your images into your mood board. A mood board is perfect to take with you when you visit shops, as the staff are much more likely to help you to create the look you’re aiming for.

“The better you learn and trust your own taste, the better the result will be for you. ”

Start with your preferences on flooring, like tiles, wooden floors, light or dark etc.

Make a colour palette of your favourite colours. Avoid trends that are not to your taste, stick to favourites, and work from there with the help of experts in the paint shop. Think concept - your interior design concept!

Define your needs! Kids? Dogs? Teenagers? Retired? Only you know your needs and preferences, and the better you learn and trust your own taste, the better the result will be for you.
