Pretty Swedish home

April 24, 2016

Pretty Swedish home-6

This super pretty Swedish home belongs to former model and interior designer Malin Persson and her family. The house is located in the seaside town of Malmö, Sweden and was originally built in 1908. The original facade was restored, lead windows were replaced, brick walls and wood floors were reinstated, crown moldings were reconstructed, and some plastered walls were left untouched, leaving all the original charm intact.

I think my favourite part is the beautiful antique cabinet in the kitchen, I’d love to have the space to have something like that in my house one day. I also really like the church benches in the dining room, I’ve always thought that was a cool idea.

My Coricraft room

My Coricraft room

coricraft-couch-angie

Last Friday myself, Anna-Belle and Lucy were all invited to Coricraft’s mega store in Kramerville to participate in a challenge where we got to decorate our own living rooms.

All we got given to start was a couch in an empty room and then free reign over the whole shop to decorate it however we liked. We roamed around for over an hour and half picking out pieces, it was so much fun! In fact I had so much fun decorating my room and I loved it so much that I now secretly live in it. They have no idea I’m there, I casually hang around during the day avoiding eye contact and then at night, just before they close I hide behind the couch like a stealthy ninja.

Ok so I’m talking rubbish, but what I’m not making up is that if you like the way I’ve decked out my room then you can head on over to Coricraft’s Facebook page and vote for it, so that you can put yourself in line to win a R2500 voucher from Coricraft to spend on whatever you like.

I came across this beautiful two bedroomed apartment in Norrmalm in Stockholm. This place possesses such an awesome mix of modern and and vintage touches, I really like it a lot. I also really like all the velvet couches and chairs, there is something so lush and fun about them.  Continue Reading…

Chez Marie Sixtine

chez-marie-sixtine-13

I haven’t done an interiors post in a while so when I came across this beautifully curated apartment called Chez Marie Sixtine that belongs to the French fashion label Marie Sixtine on My Domaine and Miss Moss, I couldn’t help but post it here too.

The place is what my dreams are made of…the use of old and new fixtures, the wallpapers and the mix of grey and pastel colours, which make for a perfect and unexpected colour combination. The cabin-like bed also reminded me of our own bedroom which made me love it even more.

Dulux Vizualizer app

October 25, 2015

Dulux Visualizer-45

How many times have you walked into a room in your house and thought to yourself “Hmmm I wonder what this wall would look like grey, or blue or canary yellow?” If you are anything like me then you’ve had this thought on more than one occasion and that’s why I’m pretty excited to tell you about the new Dulux Vizualizer app and a special giveaway that I’m hosting that could have you winning R1500 in Dulux paint and a Loads of Living voucher valued at R2000 that you can use to redecorate any room in your house. Nice hey?

But first let me start by telling you a bit more about this nifty app which I think is a pretty cool idea and a quick and easy way to realise that perhaps canary yellow is not the best colour for your dining room. This is how it works – you can either take a photo on your phone of the wall you are thinking about changing and then recolour it or you can use the real time option which allows you to hold your phone up to the wall or space you’re considering painting before choosing a colour from the Dulux range and then watching it change instantly. It’s actually really easy to use and the results give you a pretty awesome idea of what the room and your new colour choice is going to look like.
