A Charming Vintage-Industrial Inspired Home In Düsseldorf



Hejsan hoppsan! I hope you had a wonderful weekend? After a long couple of days working on the summer cottage kitchen I spent the evening looking out over the water towards Denmark to see if I could see the bonfires marking the summer solstice (any excuse for a glass of rosé by the sea! ha!). It’s hard to imagine that it’s going to get a little darker each day from now on – wah! But there’s two things to feel happy about today a) we still have almost 24 hours of daylight and b) I discovered the most inspiring home on instagram yesterday which I had to share with you! This beautiful space belongs to Anne Peter, a graphic designer and food stylist based in Düsseldorf, Germany. Anne and her husband moved in over a year ago and have made their mark by creating the most stunning kitchen (check out the brick wall and beams!), designing their own lights and giving old furniture a whole new lease of life. Let’s dive in! 
Black kitchens are huge right now. I’m a fan ever since seeing this one. Do you like the look too? In this space, the dilapidated brick work and old wood beams add character and offer a great contrast to the contemporary cabinets.  

Look closely and you’ll see that two smaller tables have been used to create a larger table – a perfect solution when it can be so hard (and pricey!) to find a large vintage table – plus it creates a lovely relaxed vibe too! 
Loving the pop of pink in the sitting room – such a perfect shade too. I’ll see if I can source the exact shade and report back! 
This swing arm sconce* is similar.

This space has put a big smile on my face this morning. Has it brightened up your Monday morning too?
Take a peek at more pics of Anne’s home over on instagram (@ammenmaerrchen). You might also like to check out a load of other beautiful Scandi-inspired German homes here
We’re well into the school summer holidays here in Sweden and the crazies are tugging on my arm to go down to the sea for a swim, towels draped over their shoulders! 
As with every summer, I’ll be posting Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays until the end of July so I can spend some time with my family and soak up that much needed vitamin D! 
I hope you get the opportunity to kick back and enjoy a little sunshine with your family and friends too! 
See you Wednesday!
