Rustic Charm

I found these stunning photographs of Helena and Pelle Hallgren's lovely tranquil home in Gävle via skona hem, i think it's the result of a perfect interior design team — she comes up with the ideas, and he creates them. Both love white rustic interiors — spaces that are calm, but with a history. Their home is a wonderful mix of heirloom pieces, fleamarket finds and basics from Ikea — plus what Pelle has built himself, such as the kitchen table and the headboard in the bedroom. With a balcony herb garden on hand for adding snippets of fragrant flavour to the cooking, their home really is a happy and comfortable one.

Blooming Collections...

I fell in love with this Lotus Flower Chandelier the moment I saw it. Made of capiz shell edged in metal, and available in two different sizes, I think it transforms any room into an elegant space. When lit from within the pendants shimmer and shine like stained glass.

Anthropologie chairs are so pretty, the 'Conservatory Chair' is entirely handcrafted with natural mango wood and embroidered hothouse flowers, perfect accent chair!

Minimalism and Simpleness...

The interior trends at the moment are all about soft minimalism and industrial simpleness, all that I want my future house to be! Layers of white, lots of light, industrial lighting, rough and rustic, then when I saw these photographs, i was reminded of how much i love beautiful, simplistic interiors. The photos are styled by Kråkvik & D'Orazio, and shot by the amazing Norwegian photographer Siren Lauvdal.
