Vitra and Artek’s Current Exhibition

Interior design firm Studioilse transforms the VitraHaus loft in Weil am Rhein, Germany into the home of a fictional couple, Hari (a musician) and Astrid ( a set designer). The concept blends harmoniously the styles of both design brands and is used to showcase their collaboration since last fall.

Inspired by the Finnish designer Alvar Aalto, each space within the design marries German and Finnish heritage beautifully.

Today I’ve decided to share some of interior stylist Emma Thomas’ inspiring work. Her clients include Elle Decoration, Homes and Gardens, Fired Earth and French Connection to name a few. What I really admire about her photographs is how she captures the simplicity of every day life with all of its details. It’s truly mesmerizing. Below are some of my favourites.

Maremma Farmhouse

Located among olive trees, this farmhouse in Maremma is a shining example of how mixing different materials can result in a space that is brimming with charm and personality.

In the living room, a marriage of stone tiles, exposed brick and wood beams creates a stunning yet cosy feel. The wall is painted a rich dark grey for contrast.

Vintage pieces are placed alongside Mid-century ones for a eclectic vibe. Pops of colour inject the space with vibrancy.

In the dining room, a Pantone chair contrasts with more rustic looking furniture pieces providing visual relief but at the same time maintaining interest within the space.

Jewel toned tableware in amethyst, fuschia and teal lend warmth to the scheme.

In the kitchen, pared down cabinets in a contemporary style allows the materials to take center stage within the space. Glass, ceramic and natural finish kitchen accessories enhance the rustic feel.

In the master bedroom, a soft lilac feature wall lends a soothing touch. The scheme is kept simple lending a sense of restrained contemporary elegance.

In the bathroom, travertine tiles and wood soften the stark white walls. Bursts of pink and orange energise the space while rustic elements add further visual and textural interest.
