Artelleriegatan 26A

One thing some real estate companies do quiet well is the way they present the houses they are selling.  Often they make sure to hire an interior designer that goes through the properties whom restyle and make them look a bit more stunning. Theres also some cases when the previous owner had already hired someone or decorated the place by themselves. In any case any of the properties that come into my attention just look amazing. And this beautiful 68 m² apartment whom lays just a street away from where I live is not an exception. 
This beauty is on sale right now and if you want to see more than only pictures you can go to the open house viewing this week. Take a look at Alexander White for more info about it. 
What does it make it so special? The contrast from the white floors with the dark walls, the great mix of colours, the aesthetic decoration, the atmosphere and coziness that this apartment breathes.

Throwback Thursday - Milla Boutique Oslo

Begin this year I was in Oslo with my dear friend and fellow blogger Natascha from the blog Mocca and Me. Being in Oslo and loving interior design as we do, a visit to the House of Oslo was mandatory! Here some snapshots from the Milla Boutique and some styling made by Camila Berntsen, the owner from Milla Boutique.
Definitely worth the visit!

Home details

Outside the days are getting colder and colder, so time to get warm inside :-)! Flowers and candles create such a nice atmosphere around the house. So this is a sneak peak from how ours look like just now.
To complete this scenery I grabbed some tea, a blanket and a good book. Isn't a great way to start the weekend?
Have a good one!

Where to stay when in ... The Algarve

Bela vista Hotel & Spa

The winter is on it's way and even I do love Christmas, right now I'm longing for the three S's: Summer, Sun and Sea.  So why not dream a bit and make plans for next year holidays in Portugal? 
One of the places that it's definitely a visit worth, is the Bela Vista Hotel & Spa. A great hotel and spa situated in Portimão, at Praia da Rocha and just about a 45 minute car drive from Faro's airport.
The hotel was a family house in the 19th century and a few years ago has been redecorated by Graça Viterbo, one of Portugal's most known interior designers. 
The hotel is an immaculately preserved resort hotel where you can find relaxation and privacy surrounded by vibrant colours. Basking on the recliners around the very fine pool, or lounging on a beach with private access, this is the perfect place to while the time away. The murmur of the waves of the nearby ocean is a constant companion.
I was there last year in June and I can tell you, definitely the place to start when willing to discover this jewel we call Algarve - the region where I was born and raised. And don't forget to eat. We have have delicious food in Portugal!!!
