Long weekends are for longer reads. So today I’m sharing not just Spaces, but links to some fabulous websites/blogs that you could easily get lost for an hour or two in.

Our Food Stories have the best tours of real homes; homes belonging to women you’d like to be friends with.
This home-office belongs to young furniture designer Amanda Lilholt – see more here
(Also popping this here as a reminder to make myself a gigantic linen moodboard.)

Another one from Our Food Stories: a couple of corners of  a beautifully-homey Copenhagen home, belonging to young architect Stine Marie. Go see the rest of it here

Emily Slotte’s blog is an old fave – she has the beautiful home and lifestyle. (Make sure to follow her on Instagram, too)

I love a brand that doesn’t limit itself to one field. Scandinavian design house Frama create furniture, lighting, apothecary products, books, and apparel. They design kitchens, and more recently, entire homes.  These pics are from a recent Frama project, The Stable House.

Cate St Hill is one of my faves. Come for the home styling, stay for the pretty-but-practical blog filled with ideas to try in your own space.

Take me here – Berlin’s newly-revamped Mitchelberger Hotel.
Really love the ‘floating’ terrazzo floor, that dark timber console for all your thangs, the floor-to-ceiling industrial windows (the hotel was once a factory) and that exposed timber framing as a design element. On the other side of that bath is a beautiful shower – more pics here

Just about everything I could want in a kitchen. I especially love the deft balance of warmth with crisp cleanness.

O hai, it me, showing you tiles I like again. This is the Basel 6 Tile from Tabarka Studio which is a subtle white terrazzo with a brass inlay. You could lay it horizontally, vertically, or both, like designer Sarah Sherman Samuel has done here.

This reinvented Victorian Terrace gives me wowsers in my trousers.  I adore the steel casement bi-fold doors that look like they came straight from an old factory, the idyllic walled garden, and the poured concrete kitchen island with its custom XXL chopping board. (I’m literally describing every element in this image and I couldn’t be more OK with that.) See more of this house – and steel casement windows as entire walls – here.

Get you a bath that can do both. I love how they’ve used the larger rectangle tile to create a ‘wet wall’ for the shower (and a ledge for storage), with the herringbone marble to give the look a little more texture and interest.

At this point am I just sharing pictures of tiles I like? Yes, Yes that’s exactly what’s happening here.

Love this kitchen (it’s a deVol Sebastian Cox kitchen) belonging to the owner of slow living homeware store Ingredients LDN. Love the custom island on castors, so it can be rolled out of the way as needed. (Also – and this is important – the castors themselves are aesthetically pleasing. Is that brass?). Love the shaker peg board wrapped right around the wall. Love the fact that the kitchen island has storage on both sides. Love the porcelain light (and you can’t see it here, but it’s hung from a vintage pulley). Love the band sawn beech cabinet front panels, with circular holes instead of pull handles. Spotted at Remodelista – go here to see more of this kitchen and home.

My kinda gal. Simple styling, ceramics on show, double-the-bowl-double-the-joy sink, and a beautiful vintage industrial-looking faucet Would you gag if I told you this faucet is actually from IKEA. Gag away.
(Discovered via Remodelista – see the rest of this home here.)

Very quintessentially 2019. So good!

Bedding from Australia’s Deiji Studios.
(P.S: This new red pinstripe duvet cover is french stonewashed linen and I need it in my life without delay.)

I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, that branch is an OSH hazard.
And I’m thinking that too, my friend. But we’re here to talk about how a cloud grey paint delivers a very quiet, grounding, and sophisticated bedroom sanctuary, especially layered with a palette of linens (plus velvet for a touch of luxe).

Love: floors painted in grey, bench seat as low shelving, and the natural woven rug to add a cosy layer and finish the look.

I know there’s a gigantic jar of pickles on the bench but I NEED YOU TO FOCUS!
Love how the single pendant light turns a simple small table into a dining space

Sh-WOW-er. (Had to, sorry).
Designed by architect James Barber.

Gorgeous kids room for interior designer Elisabeth Heier. The custom bunks have drawers in the base and cabinets above. Nice touch – the small IKEA stools are painted the same colour as the walls.

I’ll never be too bougie for IKEA. Light and Dark bedroom inspiration from new 2019 IKEA releases, styled by Pella Hedeby. Which is your fave?

Adore this custom walnut kitchen, especially the simple beading around the cabinet fronts.

This bathroom is beautiful! Manages to look both modern and traditional, with the Brunswick green tiles, the arched glass shower door, and this dark timber, reeded glass cabinet:

You just know everything behind this dark timber, reeded glass cabinet matches beautifully.
