{live here, eat that} vintage and modern


A lot of you told me how much you loved the house that I featured last week, so I decided to feature another lovely house from Scandinavia this week. In this one, a lot of vintage items and collectibles, but all arranged in a beautiful modern fashion. There are so many lovely little details everywhere in this house that I don’t really know where to start.

For example, I can’t get over the gorgeous floor in the entry way. Someday when I own a house I’d love to paint my entry way with color like they did in this house or also here, here and here. Will I ever dare? The bets are open!

And look, their doggy isn’t left out from this detail fest either: Notice the bunting above his bowls?! That’s what I am talking about when I say attention to details people! Their kitchen is in the end very simple, but bright and inviting.

I love the color palette that they used throughout the house. A lot of details in greens and blues which help give the house this very natural feel. I also spot gorgeous cushions by By Nord - one of my favorite Scandinavian brands.

They also added windows inside the house (a bit like this other house I featured recently), and I’m such a big fan of that.  The rooms are connected yet more private than in a regular open floor plan. The light (my friend!) can easily flow from one room to another. And let’s admit it, these windows are just so playful!

I couldn’t feature all of the gorgeous pictures from this beautiful house, so please make sure to go check out the rest of them here.

And with that, I will serve you this lovely classic dessert with a bit of a modern twist: a lime custard with raspberries by Béa from La Tartine Gourmande. You see, today is all about revisiting our classics, and adding the right amount of details – whether at home or in your plate.

This is one of the desserts that will disappear from the plates before you even hand them out – so make sure go check out the recipe on Béa’s blog, La Tartine Gourmande (it’s in English too). And I dare you to visit her blog without licking your lips!

    This is my first time on your blog. Wow. So, so many pretty images. The house you featured is so inspiring. Such a great combination of vintage and eclectic things- and the perfect pops of color. Can’t wait to see what you feature next!
