Hello friends and readers, it’s been a while since I last posted something. There’s no lack of ideas and things to say, there is lack of time. Or maybe energy. That’s why I highly appreciate these short moments when I can share something here on the blog.
Today I am very happy to show you one amazing colourful home.
This is a guest post brought to you by Eva Stephen. Thank you Eva and WELCOME!
“Following on the heels of the fashion catwalk, interior design has become more intimate and personal. No longer must everyone follow the same narrow path, using an identical and limited colour palette and choosing only one type of fabric. Rather, trends now allow for individual tastes to be satisfied, the only criteria being that the various parts of the interior décor add up to an elegant, interesting and comfortable whole.
Paint at least a stripe in chalkboard paint. It looks interesting, doesn’t take up any space and you can always use it for recipes (like in the example), shopping or to do lists, and for occupying your kids in time of need…
Here I am with another amazing home tour belonging to an architect and artist Anne Boysen Lorenzen. She has turned this house into a creative experimental station with design and art in bright colours on black and white background. I like the mid century modern flair and artistic approach to interior design.
Another lovely idea, from the same house. More muted polka dot pattern in the white kitchen with bright pink accents. Beautiful!
Since I started working full time in a tourist agency last month, it seems like I don’t have much time for a blog. Although the job itself isn’t exhausting, I find myself too tired to even turn on the computer…but then I think of some beautiful interiors I could miss, or brilliant ideas to simplify our life – and I’m filled up with positive, creative energy that makes me happy. Let’s browse some random inspiration for our homes, shall we?
Home office in a living room can be charming, if you choose interesting chair and make your storage work for you. Add some greenery to it, and your cosy little pc corner is the cutest.
She transformed this tiny room in a special kingdom for two little girls, with tons of storage and still enough room to play/draw/study. Truly a room they can grow into. Love the dark walls as a background for fresh green furniture. I would describe this room as vivid, inspiring, happy and fresh. foto: Berislava Picek / Cropix
…check out the rest of the room
“How can I decorate my unattractive, somewhat long, hallway with many doors and no natural light? It’s the first thing I see when I enter the home and it’s not making me happy at all. Typical hallway furniture is too big for this space and I don’t know how to make it functional and pretty. Have any ideas for me?” Jelena
In the era of neutral sofas as the first and best choice to create a well styled room even without decorating skills, you find yourself coveting for a bright coloured sofa or even patterned one. Go with it! and if you wonder how to decorate the room around such a vibrant and statement piece, I’ll try to help you decide. Depending on the look you want, you may want to showcase the vivid colour of the sofa, or make it blend with the rest of the room. The colors you choose to surround the sofa are key to achieving the right design for the space.
Today I bring you one outstanding home tour, full of hearth and personality. The owner is very talented and creative, making home decorating items out of fabric yarn. I guess my favourites are the white triangle bean bag and colourful storage baskets. Full house tour and an interview is on Bla*d but I found it via Styllia
Fortunately or unfortunately, I have to change the name of my blog. When I started PassionDecor at 2009, I didn't know much about blogs, or keywords or anything. The name PassionDecor was a first thing that fell on my head (it's the expression here) and I didn't think if anyone else has the name. Later I realized - too many 'Passion decor's are out there. I've tried to ignore the fact, until I saw few days ago about one more PassionDecor blog.
Don't know about you, but it's so hard to choose a right name... could you give me a hand?
I would much appreciate if you can give some ideas in the comment section. You all know my fondness of colours and small spaces, so should I include it in the name? I thought to go simple as "Colour Home"
Can't wait to hear your thoughts, please share it with me! love you all!!!
This lovely house features a different kind (my kind) of Nordic décor. It has a white background but it was only used to make the rest of the elements stand out. The huge blank canvas was filled with lots of colourful and vibrant details. Many different colors were combined but they were beautifully balanced. It’s interesting how each room or space has its own palette of colors. The kitchen is mostly white with black and ocher. Then the space continues into the living room where an entire wall was painted ochre. It was combined with turquoise and blue accents and a brown sofa and the contrast is quite beautiful. Adding purple to the palette starts in entryway and continues to the upstairs, where you climb on bright red stairs. Upstairs the palette is calmer, perfect for rest area. Exterior of the house is unspeakably lovely
Family living and bright colours are the main focus in this rental apartment. The strong colour palette kicks you right as you enter the apartment. Green, yellow, pink and blue may seem like an overwhelming colour choice for many, but the owner have combined the colors, so it all still works quite stylish. Whole space feels energized, youthful and happy. I dig the entrance, dining corner in the kitchen and small bedroom in red. If you want your space to be modern and affordable, this is the style you should be going for.
50 square meters can look enormous when there are no boundaries like walls. Brazilian interior designer Luiz Fernando Grabowsky prepared a loft installation for the Casa Cor exhibition, in Rio de Janeiro, to show how even limited footage can look versatile. Grabowsky designed a perfect flow between bedroom, living room and kitchen with dining area all in one space, with the bathroom as the only separated room. I love the industrial feel of the room with high ceilings, exposed brick walls and wood floors. Colour scheme with dominant combination of brown and orange creates an atmosphere of warmth and coziness, while the neutral white, black and gray grounds the space.
I’m totally crazy about this place! Absolutely perfect composition of colors, shapes and textures. This open space in coastal home in Croatia is work of two famous creative minds – academic painter Saša Šekoranja and interior designer Dean Franić. I must add it’s like they get into people’s heads to understand their wants and needs – they create so different and versatile interiors. I would love to learn from designers like them.
