Second-hand dealer and stylist Dede Ingerslev has decorated his house with a beautiful selection of mid century modern designs. It works just right when the white Scandinavian interior is filled with teak danish modern furniture and some accent colors. Here it is a blue color and it is used sparingly but gives enough interest to the place.

This wonderful family home brings together minimalism, mid century design and nature. Actually, it have a tree growing inside the house - wow! Designed by architect Alessandro Sartore, located at the foot of the Pedra da Gávea Mountains in Itanhangá, a neighborhood in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
I posted some Brazilian houses in the past and they all share this beautiful connection to nature, although being very modern, minimalistic, using lot of concrete and modern design. It works very well, especially when the interior is warmed by skilfully selected art and wonderful retro furniture.

Mikkel Bahr with his wife Anja Fazlic Bahr, both industrial designers made some pretty renovation of this prefabricated House from 1964. There are many styles, skilfully combined, from the colorful art and chairs in living / dining area to black and white working place with a cool big bookshelf and also some rustic elements and natural tones used.

Some pretty sweet inspiration from Emma Persson Lagerberg 's and Petra Bindel shoot for Åhléns Magazine. Mix of natural wood, pastel green tones and white, set up in a beautiful old apartment with high ceilings and rich decor. Love on a first sight if you ask me.

The apartment which I found at the fantastic Fantastic Frank today, immediately reminded me of that nice, warm, homelike atmosphere of my Grandparents place. All the old stuff that looks like it was collected through the ages, lots of greens, art and pastel painted walls. Nice change from the super white, bright scandinavian apartments. What do you say?

Current owners of this old farm made some pretty good job with renovating it and furnishing. It contains lots of rustic elements skilfully combined and used with minimalist approach, which resulted into a fresh and spacious feeling of the whole interior. What do you think, do you miss some modern design pieces here, or you like the rustic approach?

It is really cute, how the retro, colorful vintage chairs pops out in the otherwise mostly white living room here. The rug is I believe older IKEA one, which they sadly not sell anymore (wish I have it). In the living room, there is also a nice String shelf, that is always a nice thing to see. All around the place you can see some mid century, vintage furniture and decor, creating cozy and interesting feeling while in the kitchen, there is rather rustic dining table and chairs. I like this place a lot, and you?

Yep, this is some pretty stylish apartment. From the living room which is an amazing mix of a cool minimalist art, black and white textile with a very small pops of yellowish green color to the the nice small workspace area in the second floor, also in black and white, but this time accented by the natural brown of the wooden floor and vintage leather. Also, the box shelving in the living room, is a variation on a DIY IKEA shelving you can fin more about in this older post. It looks fresh and interesting and it is very easy to do. What do you think?
