Hello folks. I hope you had a good weekend so far. It’s Sunday and definitely not fun-day, as I’m feeling demotivated and kind of meh. Do you know this Sunday feeling?This typical Sunday, where nothing goes right. You already wake up with a bad mood, cause you know today is the last day of the weekend and tomorrow your alarm will ring at 7 am, which when only thinking about it, sucks out all energy gained over night and leaves you with very optimistic look-out to the rest of day, thus an awfully negative Sunday-freaking-Blues. Hopefully someone out there has some sympathy for my Sunday-misery. Nonetheless, after a cozy breakfast with coffee and warm bread, the world already looked much different and I gained back my energy while screening my latest vtwonen magazine. Yes, something I do Sundays. And I got even more excited when I found an amazing home tour featuring a freestanding charming bungalow in France which experienced a total metamorphosis.
I’m happy to walk you through this beautiful, handmade home from Constance and Dorian who are located in France. What do I like about this place? The retro-look with Scandinavian inspired color combinations such as white and natural wood. Furthermore, the handmade aspect that turned the former ruin into a modern vintage home with a personal touch. It took the French couple 8 years to rebuild their dream house and they did it all themselves. Wow (!) And I thought I was hands-on..
Let’s take a look at the different rooms. Continue reading
Hello folks. After a blogging break for a month or so, I’m back with a tour through Lauren Blythman’s neon dream house, located in Melbourne, Australia. You might know Laura from her colorful, bright neon watercolor collages and fun illustrations that circulate around on Pinterest. So it comes with no surprise that her home is full of color, playful patterns and eclectic styling, exactly as her designs.
The first time I found Laura Blythman art was on Pinterest. I was immediately excited and amazed how perfectly she includes my favorite colors in her art. I have a weakness for neon colors, especially peachy and minty hues. I love the way how Laura combines these intense colors so that it doesn’t seem overloaded. I added some prints which I think show her work the best.
I did not have the pleasure to walk through this jaw-dropping home, but I do think that when seeing the photos there are three things you notice: color in all corners of the home, brightness and coziness. The lovely big windows allow the sun to shine through and emphasize the colors in Laura’s designs and give the home a warm, inviting look and feel. Also, using a lot of greens make the house look more vivid and welcoming.
You can follow Laura on Instagram for inspiration.
