Blog Love: Vintage

I somehow stumbled upon a Swedish blog entitled, "Vintage" the other day and although I have to depend on the not-so-great abilities of Google translator to read the text, it became very obvious that the blogger, Johanna, has some serious design skills.  The photos below are all from her home:
How charming are these mis matched chairs and orange vintage pendant lamp? Let's not even talk about the perfection of that floor.
This is Johanna's office space.  The industrial touches in the locker (found on ebay) and lamp contrast nicely with the soft color and white floors.  
There's another locker!  Isn't that crocheted throw beautiful? She bought this beauty here
Here's another view of a bedroom with a sweet chair/nightstand and fun retro clock.
It seems as though Johanna is constantly rearranging with flea market and vintage finds.  Here's one shot of her hall where she took flea market flora books to create a collage on the wall. 
And here's another version of the same hallway, but this time perfectly styled with small objects and layered mirrors.  Wow. 
Check out Vintage to see the rest of Johanna's beautiful home.  Inspiring isn't it?

I love the industrial pieces - that orange pendant light is awesome! I've always had a thing for big letters. Those little hits of orange would have fit well into my blog post today! : )

Jessica said...

Wow, gorgeous! Love everything!

leni said...

it's like going home to a beautiful escape.

Sam said...

So gorgeous! I adore that crocheted throw rug especially with the pale tones - pure loveliness!

Gina said...

Wow. I want to live there! I am adding Vintage to my blog list. Google translator is kind of fun...it is interesting to see the sentence structure because it is so often a little off. I must be a dork, but it makes me smile. :)

...the floor is beautiful, but so that is that gorgeous orange ceiling light. I love it.

Ellen said...

Now I want to paint all my walls white.....smiles.

I'm a total fan of Swedish Interiors with pure white walls and typically painted white wood floors. Also love how ice blue and pastel period chairs are thrown into the mix.

love these as sets a scene for a great beach house - which funny enough I am designing.

I just love how vintage pieces can breed new life into a space. Also adore this blogger's use of blending them all in her space. Particularly enjoying that bold orange pendant and the whimsical botanical prints.

this is a seriously wonderful home - she's a stylist though (i understand swedish because it's almost the same as norwegian). so i guess it comes naturally. looks like she's good at photography as well. nice find!

Catherine said...

I love the lamp in the top image.

Diana said...

i love the contrast- an industrial look with great feminine style at the same time.
