Constantly browsing through apartments, flats and terrace houses online coincides quite neatly with predictably obsessing over how to decorate. As I face the prospect of almost furnishing a place from scratch, I’ve been looking to Pinterest and Tumblr for inspiration – which as you can imagine, is a veritable treasure trove of beautifully styled houses.
While I toss up between art deco and minimalist styles, there’s no denying that the Scandinavians never seem to put a foot wrong when it comes to decorating. Simple, clean, unfussy, with white lacquered floors and sheepskin rugs contrasting against dark chocolate coffee tables and steel framed chairs. My latest bookmark? These gorgeous interior shots of Danish designer Yvonne Kone’s home. With an industrial vibe, and a monotone colour palette consisting of solely black and white, it’s the kind of home I just can’t get out of my head. Back to the drawing board I suppose; well, either that or raiding half the stock at West Elm Bondi. Never has a herringbone mirrored coffee table looked so good, in that deliciously gaudy kind of way.
