Modern with an Edge

I love this modern home, it's clean, fresh, modern but not boring. Touches of colour here and there gives life to these white rooms, while the owner's fun collection of prints and art addes an edge, a personality.

What makes it even better is that it wouldn't cost a fortune to creat the look, it is the result of some Ikea furniture mixed along with flea market finds, topped with some lovely prints from say Etsy, and C'est fait!

Isn't that workspace just wonderful? Ok, I'm off to pack for a little day trip tomorrow ;) The secret will be revealed soon! xx

I am really scared of white sofas cause they get dirty so easily! But they are so pretty to look at.

Lovely inspiring details; the chalk blackboard is a nice idea!
Thanks again for the Award dear...got the chance to post it today ~XO as always

Claudia said...

I love these

babalisme said...

I love the blackboard in work desk, I always thinking of placing a blackboard in my home, and I saw one as a kitchen wall in one interior magazine, I was soo thrilled! Omygod, what a lovely idea, we can write recipes, things to buy, what's expire soon, etc. But then I realize that blackboard produce... DUST! They look really good at home, I wonder if I put them to use or just hang them there like paintings?

Betsy Head, Affordable Interior Design said...
