An Artist's Cape Cod Escape

A couple's escape from city life brings them to Truro, MA. An old artist's home embracing that Cape Cod experience is refurbished using IKEA products and vintage finds. I always love a drive to the country, smell the trees and fresh air, waking up to birds and rustling leaves.  I guess New York just gets too noisy and over stimulated that once in a while your brain just needs a break from it all. This would be a perfect hideaway.

Black Shelf | Dark Trending

If I were to pick one single favorite product in IKEA, it would be the BOTKYRKA shelf. It is versatile, minimal, durable, and sleek. You can just imagine how I flipped out when I discovered it will be introduced in black. A perfect accessory to go with your dark trending home.

Minimal, Monochromatic + Fresh

The home of my dreams often change and evolve through the years. And even in the recent years it has also tuned into something a little less decorated, more art on the walls, lesser or no colours, functional and not fancy. Negative space to me is a luxury. The eyes need to rest.

The other day I shared with you my favorite of favorites of places - Maja's home. It is a major swoon alert. This home is my imagined dream home, materialised (no joke). White accented with polished concrete walls and flooring, walls of windows/doors, loads of natural light, mix of warm woods with clean Scandinavian lines, minimal, and black accents. Hints of wood create the small touches of warmth. You can just imagine the excitement in my bones when she shared a tour of her home...

Go Outside

Certainly most of you blessed with a terrace have outfitted it for the season. Did you furnish it with teak,  cork,  concrete,  or perhaps d.i.y. pallets? Endless fun options out there.

Today let's take a peek at Maja's wonderful,  krisp, minimal outdoor space.  Of course with that trademark Finnish clean lines which I'm admittedly a huge fan. And ahhh yes, those SINNERLIG products can't look any better.

And not to mention how much I'm going ga-ga over the black exterior paint! If you like black as well check out my old post (Maja's previous home exterior) here, and this black bedroom here, these gorgeous black herringbone floors here, and this black poolhouse here.
