Interior details – raw meets clean and simple

Lately, I’m really inspired by tiny interior details, when it comes to decorating your home.

I’ve always loved walking around town and spotting different interior details in the homes I walk by. My husband and I used to do it a lot before we had kids (not in a nosy kind of way, of course). I’m sure we’ll do it again soon, because the kids are growing up, and in the not so distant future, we might get the chance to walk hand in hand down the street more often – just the two of us.

Until then, I’ll enjoy the times we do, and browse the internet for even more inspiration. Take this home for example, I know it’s been done before, and some of you might even be tired of it by now. But I love the raw brick walls in this home. What is more, I love what they’ve done with it.

The fact that the kitchen and other spots around the home are so clean and minimalistic makes for the perfect raw element.

I’m drawn to this home, because I find some very beautiful solutions, which corresponds with my own taste, but I also find corners of this home, where I’m left thinking: Why on earth did they do that? That’s what I love most about getting a glimpse of how other people live and decorate.

Inspired by Hindö

I’m all about inspiration these days. Having had a tough Christmas, I really need to focus on what I love and what inspires me. This week I’ve been returning to the beautiful pictures from IKEA Livet Hemma.

I love the styling and the use of their Hindö inside – it’s such a nice storage solution. It’s perfect for all the stuff you need close by when you’re working. It turned out to be quite a cool workspace. I almost bought a Hindö piece last year, because I needed a station for some of my garden tools and a place where I could re-plant my herbs.

Ever since I saw these pictures, I’ve been thinking about using something from the Hindö series in my boy’s room. He needs some new storage space and I need to be able to hide some of this stuff. Right now we’ve got a very open storage solution, and I can feel that it is time to move away from that in order to create a much calmer room. With bits and pieces all over the place, I need to hide something in there. I’m thinking something like this or this.

Gravity Rack from Nomess – your hallway will love it

Yesterday, an email from Nomess landed in my inbox about their Gravity Rack, which is a pretty cool wardrobe solution. It’s super easy to hang. Just take a look at the video at the end of this post.

I kind of like the idea that it is easy to take down, if you need more space. It’s super simple, yet very beautiful. The bended metal tube is held in its position only by a cord string – this string is fixed to the wall by two metal hooks. The Gravity Rack was designed by Thomas Schnur and the maximum weight is 20 kg.

When it’s time to redo our hallway, I’ll keep this one in mind.

Cool storage for kids

Here is some inspiration for a rather cool storage solution for all the tiny toys your kids tend to bring to the home. I’m collecting glass jars right now, and hopefully I’ll be creating these lovlies soon. They will look great in my son’s new room.

I found them on this great blog that I’m now following called My 2nd hand life. It’s a wonderful source of inspiration, and just by reading through the posts, I’ve found a few other DIY projects, just waiting for me to get started. But more about them later on. So I highly recommend that you check out the blog here. I’m pretty sure you’ll find a project or two just by having a look around. Enjoy.
