A log cabin-inspired look won’t suit every interior however, in this new-build in London it looks spot on.
The rustic clap-board wall is a pretty simple job for an enthusiastic DIYer to accomplish in a weekend. All it would take to reproduce is a pallet of reclaimed pine floorboards, hammer & nails, tape measure, spirit level and sharp electric or hand saw. Just look out for hidden electric cables and water pipes when banging in the nails! We love the way the planks continue across the ceiling making you feel enclosed when snuggling up in bed.
The warm wood is picked up in the bed head, bedside tables, armchair and beautiful herringbone parquet flooring. The rustic feel is counterbalanced with industrial type wall, ceiling and table lighting. The huge sliding windows which look out over to mature trees help bring even more of an ‘at one with nature’ feel to the room.

Have you put up your tree and hung your decorations yet? What’s your colour scheme? We usually go for traditional red on the ground floor and copper on the top floor. We really like the look & feel of this Christmas fireside; simple rustic with minimalist white tree ornaments and wrapping paper.
The addition of a vintage wooden child’s sled adds a sense of fun. The unusual, half-moon wood-burning stove is the focal point of the room (well, it is when the Christmas tree isn’t there!). All its accessories are close at hand – logs, newspapers, companion set… there’s even a vintage metal fire bucket to add a flash of colour.

I could spend a lot of time in this sociable, modern vintage sitting room. The space is dotted with two of my favourites – vintage ‘fat lava‘ pottery and original gulvvases. There’s a lot of colour, however it’s used thoughtfully – primarily reds, yellows and oranges – complementing the wood of the floor and furniture.
The original parquet floor is softened by the neutral area rug. I love the double-sided fire – heating two living rooms for the price of one!

We love this space! This Swoon Worthy boho glam kitchen belongs to Kimberly Duran; Pennsylvania-born, Manchester-based, multi-award-winning lifestyle blogger.
Swoon Worthy is the name of her blog and ‘eclectic boho glam’ is the fitting phrase she uses to describe her style.
Kimberly’s bold use of black, metallics and print is in evidence all around her house however, it’s in her kitchen that we love it the most. Copper, brass & gold against black is a match made in heaven and so, so current. The open, overhead shelves show off her collection of beautiful glass and china to great effect.
If you’ve fallen for Kimberly’s kitchen, you’ll love the rest of her home. Go check out her ‘doing up’ story on her website.

What a laid back kitchen diner! The space belongs to Dee Campling, Instagram doyenne and co-founder of the myhomevibe hashtag.
It has a natural Scandi feel – very modern, yet homely too.
You can imagine her family sitting here having their breakfast, the kids doing their homework or the grown-ups sharing a bottle of wine after the young ones have gone to bed. A space for all the family!

This monochrome open-plan living space belongs to textile designer and Rosendahl Design Group Creative Director, David Andersen‘s Copenhagen home.
Wonderful light enters the space from all directions – the kitchen area being particularly blessed, which is ideal for food preparation and cooking tasks.
It’s a very pared back, masculine interior – no unnecessary fuss in evidence here. The interior décor has a strong design-led feel with some real Scandi classics in evidence. It’s striking, yet very functional.
