Natural beauty at home

Today’s post is about how to bring the beauty of eco style into your home. As I stepped out this morning to get my usual coffee I just felt refreshed and inspired by the smell of rain. I was re-energised by the greenery that surrounds us. I know that some of you might disagree as it is a bit cold and damp. For me, it is such a pretty season with its crispy trees which enhance the beautiful textures and colours around us. Now is the time for nesting, so enrich your home with warm soft furniture and bring in some of the elements of nature. Try mixing rustic textures with industrial textures, softening with the addition of rugs and warming up with colour. I have always felt that a home built with the environment in mind carries that positive energy within its walls, and has a lasting effect on the people that live there.

So here are a few inspirations for you x

Hope you had a lovely weekend.

This is an incredible tiny 430 square meters apartment transformed into a little oasis! Spotted in Linnaeus Town, Sweden, the space looks open and airy (considering the size) and still maintains its original features.

The sliding wall panels (secret to the success of this tiny home) hides away bookcases, TV and two large closets. The combined bedroom and living area opens up into a small kitchen with laundry space and a bathroom, and a gorgeous fireplace is nestled into a cozy corner.

The kitchen exposed brick wall adheres some character to this gorgeous home mixed against the white walls and cabinetry.  And to top this up is the stunning balcony, which boasts expansive views of neighboring rooftops and mountains.

Overall I think this speaks for itself, you don’t need to have a big space to have a modern bliss oasis at home! Elegantly decorated and still feels spacious.
