A Scent of Sweden: Svensk Co

Svensk Co

Always intrigued by the Scandinavian simplicity and having lived there, Sofia wanted to grow a product line that had both the best raw materials and a modern and sleek design. And that’s how Svensk Co was born. As she expands her product line she holds that initial goal close to her heart. Sofia lives in San Francisco where she handcrafts each candle with love.

(Svensk Co Sommarang Candle, $38)

Sommarang is swedish for, ‘Summer’ Meadows. And that’s the perfect way to describe the scent with a mixture of sweet floral lavender, and rejuvenating rosemary essential oils. It’s a perfect treat to light for kitchen and even bathroom.

Svensk Co candles contain the finest soy wax which burns cleaner and stronger than other waxes. Each candle is hand-poured, blended with signature mixes of essential oils and sealed with 100% natural cork stopper. The candles are then packaged in our hand screen-printed muslin bags.

A Modern Design Project in the South of France

Quiet House in France

On a small plot of land, sandwiched between a vineyard shed, a driveway, and a main street, the Quiet House is a project by Artelabo in a village in the south of France. With its tight locale, along with consistent winds, the design proved a challenge and consisted of creating privacy among the chaos. That led to a home that turned inward and to the incredible valley views below.

New In: Interiors | Neo-Classical Meets Modern

neoclassical

Interior MA is a wonderful compact apartment design of only 55 square meters by INT2 Architecture, located in a house built before the Revolution in Moscow, Russia. French neo-classical elements are seen throughout this small space, white walls, high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling walls, parquet flooring, plaster cornices, wood shutters. The white walls work perfectly for reflecting light throughout the interiors and highlights the proportions of the room, showcasing clean lines. A minimalist black box in the space houses rooms with technical purposes (toilets, boiler room, kitchen) and storage (laundry, closet for clothing and shoes). It is situated in the center of the room, around the main functional area, the open plan kitchen and dining area with a four meters long island, a bar and lounge space with leather furnishings, bio fireplace and projector as well as a bedroom with work space.

The herringbone pattern on the wood flooring makes the space feel luxurious and warm. The modern elements of the interior contrasts with the materials and style of classic architectural features of the walls and flooring. At the same time they seem to complement each other quite well. The home exudes character and personality, creating a whole incredibly designed architectural space.

I’m really loving the art featured by the homeowner!

New in: Interiors | A Venture Into The Vintage Glam Home

the vintage glam 1

I’ve always been interested in tiny house living, when I first saw a book about it a couple years ago before it was even mainstream. The thought of downsizing and owning only what you truly needed to live, being able to move your house wherever you wanted appealed to me. I did love the minimal aspect of it. Today’s tiny houses are so creative, there is no limit to what you can build.

Created by Tiny Heirloom for a Portland couple, Ben and Callie, the Vintage Glam Home is a sleek and sophisticated tiny house that allows them the freedom and mobility they enjoy.

Built on a 33′ gooseneck trailer, this 200 sq.ft tiny house comes with heated hardwood floors, a living plant wall, bathroom skylights, and a multi-functional platform that will include living, sleeping, and dining quarters. The kitchen includes granite counter-tops, white cabinets with dark handles, and a farm sink. The counter-tops and all white interior is what drew me to this space.

New in: Interiors | Small Scandinavian Apartment

scandinavianapartment

New week and what better way to start it than with a nice Scandinavian apartment. What this apartment lacks in size makes up for in room opening industrial glass doors. This grey toned apartment is also styled by Scandinavian Homes, as you can see in some of the decor details throughout the entire home. It’s such a beautiful light-filled space!
