10 Homes

another installment of Ten Homes. man, what a day. moving sucks! but what sucks even more is when your furniture removal guys don’t even show up when they’re supposed to. needless to say today has been frustrating. honestly, the last thing i felt like doing today was writing a post (ack, my back! my back.) but i thought i’d have a sit down and take a calm scroll / stroll through ten of my favourite homes that have been featured around of late – to remind myself of what can be. i hope you enjoy them too.

Wonderdeco

i’m actually moving out of my lovely flat this month (sad face), so right now my mind is on the crappy business of packing up. it does make me feel a bit better to browse interior blogs in the process, so that i can imagine what i’d like my new home to look like. if you’re into beautiful Swedish homes like i am then best make a pit stop at Wonderdeco - run by stylist and blogger Sanna Fischer Nordström (who herself has a beautiful home), with photos by Ida Carrol.

Oyyo

Oyyo is a studio based in Sweden founded by creative duo Lina Zedig and Marcus Åhrén, who marry Swedish design sensibilities with their nomadic moods and travelling adventures. the studio releases one to two new products per year to work up a core collection of textiles, pieces of furniture and accessories. their first collection is Oyyo No.1, a series of six original dhurries handwoven by a community of craftspeople near India’s Blue City, Jodhpur.

Uniquely made from 100% organic cotton and vivid vegetable dyes derived from local plants, our dhurries are conceived as timeless self-investment pieces providing comfort of the best possible quality out there. The dhurries are woven with techniques dating back centuries, devoid of machines, but with a contemporary design and colour pallet. Their carefully selected colours and exquisite patterns become a statement of Oyyo’s natural optimism and core values: We claim a re-engagement with the natural world and express our confidence in the productive wonders made possible thanks to cultural diversity.

Girl & Graaf

i got the sweetest email from Lauren sharing the campaign for her recently opened online boutique Girl & Graaf. Lauren says she took a lot of inspiration from the blog in creating the campaign, so i guess things have come full circle around here! and what a beautiful shop (and photoshoot!) it is, i am definitely coveting those washable gold bags.

Catch Up: Spaces

ever since i got back from my holiday i’ve been tirelessly catching up on my reader (which is now down to under 500 items!) and pinning away in the mind to do a massive These Things. but, MASSIVE it was. too massive. so i decided instead to create a little mini-series of sorts called Catch Up. relevant to interiors, fashion, design etc.

first up – SPACESif you want to see more spaces see this board.

Modern Findings

i am so jealous of Wakako’s home, which you can see in full at her house tour. she has a blog called Modern Findings that details her love for mid-century modern design, something that is clearly reflected in this beautiful space.

TW Workshop

i’ve been keeping a close eye on Tracy Wilkinson’s blog 149 Sullivan Street, as she has been teasing us with sneak peeks of her new site for TW Workshop - which i’m happy to see launched this past week. Tracy is a British designer who has a masters degree in fashion & textile design from the royal college of art in london, and now lives stateside where she handmakes ceramics and home accessories (amongst other creative endeavours). be sure to visit her shop.
