i’m crushing on the home of elise joseph of pennyweight. it wasn’t long ago that this home was featured on design sponge, so maybe you have seen it? but, perhaps you have not. either way, it’s calm, inviting and carefully curated. and it’s the thoughtful details that i’m so taken with.
i’ve been crushing big time on this dreamy swedish home which belongs to sophia of, the blog, mokkasin. i really can’t seem to get this beauty out of my head.
i adore this home for a few reasons . . .

i must have the netherlands on the brain. i’ve been dreaming of my very own dutch bike, and yesterday i was talking all about holland with the owner of an antiques store (where i bought this little pretty). my brother and sister have both visited before. and, naturally, being part dutch, i think a trip is in order (one day, right!). but, for now a little visual trip will have to do.

outdoor spaces are clearly on my mind these days as it’s that (short) time of year where we can pretty much live outside. i’ve been trying to make small updates to our space and thus scouring inspiration. i came across the home of denise bovee over on a beautiful mess and fell pretty hard for her relaxed kid-friendly bohemian outdoor space.
the patio set, lighting, daybed (i need a cat), kids table, record player . . . well you can see all the goodness for yourself. i feel like a lot of magic and creative moments happen in this space.
are you making any updates to your outdoor space? i’ve added this table + these chairs from ikea and i’m dying to do a little thrifting to add some interest to my space. i need a few mixed matched chairs to add to the table and perhaps some lighting.
also, i’m sharing a few tips on stylish family outdoor living check out my article here.
p.s. if you are looking for new instagram inspiration (i am – so tell me your faves) than follow denise. she is an instant new fave of mine.

i came across this crazy amazing eclectic spanish loft over on decor8, which you may have already seen. i just couldn’t help but re-post it. it is one of those spaces that i like to study and go over with a fine tooth comb. you know, the kind of space where you take in each and every little detail and then go back again only to see something that you missed the first time.
i think them mirror turned sideways (and scribbled on) is such an unexpected element. and do you spy the birds hidden up in the chandelier? this would be so fun (and easy) to mix in for spring. and i have to say, i just really love those black and white dogs with the pops of red next to them.
as much as there is a lot going on, there is still something very relaxing and calming about the space….i say it has something to do with all of the beautiful white tones. do you find this space inspiring or is it too eclectic for you? i’ve always loved eclectic style. in fact, i came across an eclectic decorating book i bought back in the late 90′s. i love seeing how some styles just stick with you, over the years. more lovely photos after the jump.
it’s likely you have seen the latest issue of LONNY. if you haven’t than i’m telling you, this is an edition you don’t want to miss. i wasn’t planning on doing a house crush post this week, but i fell so madly for this space, and thought you lovelies would too. the home, located in sweden, belongs to swedish stylist jennifer jansch.
i’m crushing on an eclectic victorian home located in brondesury park in england. i say, mixed matched chairs is always a great idea but a pink cushy chair at the head of the table = brilliant!
the blue used in such a layered way works beautifully and makes the pink pop all the more.
if you are wondering where i found this lovely home … i have to tell you … there is this site that i like to frequent. and if i had a whole day to waste, i’d probably spend it pinning at least every other image from this site. it’s jj locations, a location agency based out of london. they find some amazing locations for the likes, of boden, cath kidston, elle decoration and so on. and seriously, you will soon be wishing to escape to one, or all, of these homes / locations in england.
you can more here.
ps – guess what…. next week i’ll be starting up monday mess again! i can’t wait for you to see who is sharing their mess.

today i’m totally crushing on the home of riikka from weekday carnival. like pretty much everything about it.
how great are the kid’s rooms? i love how the walls are painted in both rooms. simple but such a big impact (and not to mention, great color choices).
and i have to say that one of the things that stands out most to me about this home is how each shelf, table, corner and so on is perfectly styled. i’m taking note, as this is as goal of mine this year.
any homes you’ve been crushing on lately?
