Exuding a relaxing traditional feel and plenty of character, this home in Kullavik, Sweden (initially discovered by our site on Skeppsholmen) is inspiring to say the least. The wall that runs around the house frames the garden and along with a few small walkways and a splendid oak creates a perfect outdoor environment. Aside from the main thatched roof building, the property includes a large double garage and a separate shed for garden tools and bicycles.
The 342 square meters residence has a pleasant and practical layout featuring different departments, great for accommodating a large family. A master bedroom with dressing room, plenty of space for storage, sofa by the window and king-size bed acts as the focal relaxation spot of the entire crib. Right next to this interior you will find a lovely bathroom with whirlpool tub for relaxing breaks. This is a villa that offers a quality of life beyond the ordinary with its unique design style, quiet location and green surrounding landscapes.
We now turn to top design bloggers such as Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth, who has decorated her kitchen shelving with an array of pastel dishware. Don’t be afraid to mix function and style when it comes to your decorative shelves. Put useful items on display, but arrange them artfully. If the shelving is purely decorative, choose pieces carefully. Be selective, as this gives your shelves a curated, artful look, as shown by this DIY hoop shelf from A Beautiful Mess.
