My passion for interior design and living-spaces has stemmed from the minimal and contemporary houses I have grown-up in, built and styled by my parents. Moving away from home I have developed my own ideas, inspiration and sense of style. In this interior blog post I aim to showcase my modest living-space, influenced by Scandinavian and Nordic design, as well as my new macramé buys from my recent trip to Bali.
From the Instagram accounts I follow I learnt that the items and trends repeatedly represented on social media belong to a universal movement of Nordic and Scandinavian design. Hexagon shelves, trestle tables, industrial clothing rails, pallet furniture, pineapple prints and succulent plants were among the many items collaged on my inspiration board, desired and gradually acquired. As you can see, Mono Online Shop has been my “go-to-girl” in collecting such pieces and adding them to my home.
Before I went to Bali, I believed that ‘bohemian’ and ‘minimal’ were polar-opposite concepts. The high-end boutique stores and contemporary structures in Bali are designed to coexist with the lifestyle and surroundings of the island which is simplicity at its’ best. Apart from the contemporary and bohemian apparel from high-end boutique stores in Seminyak (Magali Pascal, Uma and Leopold, Lily Jean etc.) I preferred supporting local artisans and handmade macramé products: hammocks, cushions, plant hangers, wall-hanging designs and much more.
I wanted a piece of Bali and to represent the island’s contemporary and bohemian style in my home. As you can see I have styled my new Bali buys together with my Scandinavian furniture to create a space that is both minimal and organic at the same time. No matter where I go and what item I decide to add to my home my style aims for consistency: under the control of simplicity and harmony of an all-white home.
