Nursery Styling – Pastels with a monochrome touch

I would be lying if I’d say that I didn’t enjoy spending hours in puzzling together the in my eyes, perfect nursery for our baby girl. Honestly, I loved it and I could directly hop onto the next project – any preggo mama-to-be around who needs some help in styling her baby’s nursery? I’m up for it. If you follow me on instagram, you probably have already seen the “pastel monochrome geometric shapes madness” that I’m currently into.

Since there have been a lot of questions from you and other mamas about how I came up with the styling and where I bought the products, I thought I sum it all up in a post. I’m adding some useful tips for your own baby room decoration and of course I’m giving you a nursery tour. Just keep on reading.

Actually, I can’t really tell what made me pick ochre yellow, black and pastel pink as the dominating shades. I think I remember searching for trend colors of the past years and I came across the 2016 trend color ochre gold by Flexa. Don’t get me wrong, I usually don’t follow trends. I’m more of a fish swimming against the stream.

However, in this case I really loved the warmth of the shade and how it combined with pastel pink. So I started creating a moodboard on Pinterest. Besides, my love for pastels, I also started to adore the monochrome style, which is all over social media. It’s nothing new, but as I said I don’t follow trends, so it might be only now that I realise that black and white is something I fall for, yet I haven’t in the past when it was upcoming. The monochrome style is something you often see in Scandinavian homes. When I was living in Sweden I came across it many times. The nordic people just know what’s right – black and white with minimal color and yet their homes are still “hygge” (cozy). Scandinavian simplicity. But don’t shy away from bold colors.

Actually you will notice that I used a lot of Scandinavian brands for the decoration. I really like the style. However, smaller labels from the Netherlands or Spain are also incorporated. I’m fan of mixing it up a little.


Below some tips how I crafted my moodboard:

  • I made sure that I focus on the three main colors
  • I mixed patterns and textures
  • I searched for nurseries that I adore and tried to find out where to shop the look
  • I created a list of interesting brands and nursery online shops
  • I collected the baby furniture and interior styling pieces from the various shops and pinned them. While doing this, I again carefully selected only those products that fit my color palette


After my color palette and product moodboards were ready the fun part started.


During the nursery tour you’ll get an overview what brands I used to decorate our nursery. The baby mobile and wooden chains I made myself. DIY is a great and cheap alternative to buying everything new.

Next time, I’ll share my most favorite online shops where you can find not only interior styling products, but also clothes or small furniture pieces, as well as gifts for the new mum. Enjoy!

Freestanding charming bungalow in France

Living Area 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

Spring Summer 2015 at Bloomingville


Hello and Happy Weekend my dear readers. I’m glad it’s weekend and I can spend some time on my favorite hobby, and that is blogging about the latest trends in the interior decoration industry. Last time I mentioned that I have some exciting news for you. And I really do. Maybe you’ve already seen it, as I know you. However, if not, then, lean back now and enjoy. I’ve got the new Bloomingville Spring Summer 2015 Collection for you today. Ok, I admit, I’m over the moon enthusiastic about the new collection, because first of all I love Bloomingville. It’s one of my favorite interior design and decoration brands. Second, this collection is special. I’m not sure whether the interior gods have heard my wishes, but all big brands incorporated my most-liked colors and themes in their designs for this season. Pastels, ceramics, florals and botanicals, birdies, marble, metallics, plants and geometrics. Oh holy macaroni, I love these trends. Now, would you like to see what I’m talking about? Then here are a few images from Bloomingville.

Tell me, are you also so thrilled by this collection? What do you think about the colors? Do you spot any favorite items? I’m in love with the geometric vases. I’ve always been.
