When it comes to decoration at home, you can sometimes come to unexpected ideas and materials. Like this crazy yet cool idea: using an old metal slatted frame as a decorative element. Smart & unexpected!

Swedish Home With Vibrant Colours

Swedish Home With Vibrant Colours | Interior Design & Decoration | Scoop.it

Who thought that Scandinavian interior design is all about using whites and wooden materials, will be proven wrong when glancing through those pics. This Sweden based home bursts with home decor in vibrant colours and surprises with a black high-gloss flooring. Colourful wall art and black lampshades extend the design concept to all surfaces and create a holistic interior design concept. Apparently, Scandinavia has more to offer than whites & woods:-)

Barcelona is not only a perfect city for a seaside weekend trip, it also bursts with creative and top-notch interior designs. Just check this awesome example of an airy space with modern and classic elements plus a bright array of colours. And notice the surprising visual effects created by the bookshelf stairs with an optical illusion and big pieces of art to add drama and focal points to the high-ceiling interior. Real eye-candy!

Beautiful Blogger Home

Beautiful Blogger Home | Interior Design & Decoration | Scoop.it

Now what I love here is the authenticity of a real blogger's home. It is sublimely styled, yet it transfers an honest and vibrant aura of a space where people actually live everyday. I dream of such a great combination of bright white and down-to-earth colour hues in brown, orange, and black and the exciting combination of wood and metal in interiors. Not to mention the perfect workspace in the loft conversion!! I see she is selling her home...maybe I should move in?

Peek Into A Design Blogger's Home | Interior Design & Decoration | Scoop.it

When browsing for inspiring interiors, it is never a mistake to peek into design bloggers' homes. Just like into this gem. It is Elana Safronsky's sublime home bursting with a exquisit mix of styles and decorative elements. I particularly love this side table design: the bright white table, a historic portraits, fresh flowers, a quirky vase, and a unique lamp with a base made out of dishes and a retro style lamp shade. Bliss!

Pimp Your Kitchen

Pimp Your Kitchen | Interior Design & Decoration | Scoop.it

Tonight I spent a good period of time in my kitchenette (yes, I don't even have a kitchen!!) preparing some home-made pizza. Looking around I fantasized about pimping my kitchen (which I wish I had) with embellishing decoration elements that come in handy as well as stylish. Once my pizza was ready, I moved to my sofa, indulged in Italian flavours, and browsed the net for inspiring posts on kitchen decoration. And I happened to find this blogpost with a very quirky approach on kitchen decoration. After all, I loved it so much that I wanted to share it with you. Hope you like it too:-)

Mid Century Style in Hollywood | Interior Design & Decoration | Scoop.it

Hollywood is all about glam, sunshine, Sunset Boulevard, beaches and workout? Well ok, mostly, but Hollywood seems to burst a plethora on great interiors as well. Just like this, the home of midcentury lover Jonn Coolidge, a photographer specializing in interiors. Take a closer look on the furniture, the minimalistic, graphic art prints, the carefully placed colour pops, and the magnificent wooden floor and ceiling. To round it up: thumbs up!

Autumn Colours For Interiors

Autumn Colours For Interiors | Interior Design & Decoration | Scoop.it

Today it's September 1st. And I love it. When I got back from work to my sixth floor rooftop apartment, I made myself a big cup of freshly brewed coffee, lit a candle in my teal, plaited candle holder, opened the window, and mused about life. It was dusk, I could see lights switching on in other apartments, and I took a deep breath of the fresh, crisp autumn evening air. Whenever I feel totally relaxed I start thinking of - yes - interior design and decoration. So I pondered about colours for interiors that reflect the season. And I was thinking of saturated hues of mustard, teal, ocean blue, royal red, forest green. Well, what can I say, I'm kinda looking forward to the autumn season. Have a great September folks!

Small Home - Big Style

If you are a Young Professional or you consider yourself an Urban Trendy and would never give up a downtown dwell, then you might be faced with a common problem of urban living: limited space. However, small homes do not imply to lower one's sight and desire for interior design and styling. Take this example of young creative lady. She uses functional furniture with smart storing solutions, combines these with vintage finds, and adds a tad of sophistication by placing some design classics like the Eames chair. All this is tied together with with a contrast of whites and darker hues, counteracted with bright colours of art, textiles, and other decorative elements. To sum it up: I really love it!

Today was just the right moment to stop by one of my favorite blogs, sfgirlbybay. Victoria Smith presents in her lates blogpost the wonderful and inspiring home of fellow blogger and photographer Laure Joliet. She proves that small homes can be as stylish, as breathe-taking, and as inspiring as spacious homes. She combines a wonderful mix of mid-century furniture with modern and ethnic elements. I love how the carefully placed colour highlights underline the sophistication of this warm home. My absolute favorite is the incredibly cool lamp with the turquoise basis and wooden stand. So stylish! Big like!!

Sophisticated Interior With Surprising Details

Sophisticated Interior With Surprising Details | Interior Design & Decoration | Scoop.it

Yet another great interior I want to share with you. This sophisticated home caught my eye immediately. I love the dominance of white and wood that pay tribute to the sleek Scandinavian style. Yet there is more to this interior: it surprises with a plethora of surprising details. Like the African animal head, the lime-yellow stools, the wooden animal figurines, and the brightly coloured textiles. All together a sublime composition, isn't it?

Deco Idea: Sydney Hale Company Soy Candles

Deco Idea: Sydney Hale Company Soy Candles | Interior Design & Decoration | Scoop.it

Now that autumn is finally approaching, the nights get colder, the air is crisp and fresh, and the first leaves fall from the trees, it is about time to follow the trend of nesting and dwelling in a comfy home. To add the right fineness to you apartment, candles are a must. I love delicately scented candles. And if this candles have another special feature, even better. Just like these: The Sydney Hale Company natural soy candles come in a variety of ample fragrances. Moreover, they come in a stunningly beautiful glass with a simple and traditional design. The only downer here: So far, these beauties are only available in the US. Sigh!

Uncluttered: Minimalistic Interior Design

Uncluttered: Minimalistic Interior Design | Interior Design & Decoration | Scoop.it

While browsing through international interior blogs, I got hooked with this uncluttered, clean, and minimalistic interior presented on Riazzoli. The dominace of white is interrupted by subtle colour statements and great graphic art. A real highlight is the old, traditional corner fireplace. It perfectly counteracts the modern, minimalistic interior design and thus providing the so sought after "visual suspense" in sophisticated interiors.

Artist Watching: Presenting Leah Duncan | Interior Design & Decoration | Scoop.it

Today I was kept busy checking my Google+ wall which was constantly updated by fabulous design content from Faberuna Design, a great site sharing handmade design findings. One of the updates was the work of US based artist Leah Duncan. She has a strong handwriting in illustrative art that reminds me of naive yet sophisticated Scandinavian approaches to illustration. A unique combination of graphic elements and natural motives blend in with warm and saturated colours thus delivering refined designs that can be found on prints, pillows, tea towels and so on. She also runs a great Etsy shop. I am pretty sure you gonna like her work just as I do!

Daydream Interiors: Moroccan Style

Daydream Interiors: Moroccan Style | Interior Design & Decoration | Scoop.it

Today I am daydreaming. I bought fresh, juicy figs. And I bought a wonderful book on Moroccan interior design. I am browsing through the book and every single page is breath-taking. Bright, saturated colours, shimmers of gold and gemstones, carved wooden furniture, and handmade lamps and jugs made me lose the feeling of time and space. While typing these words, I am slowly returning to the 'now and here'...and I will put Morocco right on top of my travel list. Enjoy!

How about some colour?

How about some colour? | Interior Design & Decoration | Scoop.it

Most of my furniture at home is white. Plain. My walls: white. But not everything is simply white. I like to add some colour pop with art, flowers, pillows, throws, rugs, and paraphernalia. How about some cheerful little vases like those on the pic? I have some. My favorites in my apartment at the moment: colourful candleholders from BoConcept. Do you like to play with colour in your interiors?
