Tjena! We’re going monochrome today with Alexander Parr’s pad in Bielefeld, Germany. Black, white and earthy shades set the tone for a calm and contemporary apartment which is bathed in sunlight for much of the day. The items have been carefully edited and whittled down to a selection of new Nordic design and Scandinavian classics, while rugs, sheepskins. cushions and sheer linen curtains help to add warmth. Pull up a chair and enjoy the tour! 
A selection of Eames chairs have been draped in sheepskins in the dining area. In the corner a print from Paper Collective has been hung above a Grasshopper lamp

A drinks trolley* by Normann Copenhagen provides a practical place for vases, books and other pieces. The top print is from Normann Copenhagen (I love this one – especially when the light catches it in this way!). 

Alex sits at a ‘Siege Ballon‘ while working. I actually once used an exercise ball to sit on when I worked in London. They’re meant to be really good for your back and core strength as you’re constantly moving and adjusting. Having said, it always used to roll away (although I did also suspect a couple of my colleagues played football with it from time to time!) – so I’d always be going off to retrieve it! Find out more info about this one and the health benefits here
While on the topic of office chairs, these days I use this one – which I love! But on a recent visit to the IKEA headquarters, I noticed that people were sitting on kinds of different seats – and one was even on a stationary bike! What do you sit on when you work / study? 

White linen is so fresh for the summer (source similar here*). I love how Alexander has paired with black lighting including a mantis wall lamp. So simple, yet so calm!

I hope this lovely monochrome pad has filled you with inspiration today! 
You can see more snapshots of Alexander’s light and airy home over at @alexanderpaar
I can’t believe it’s Friday tomorrow! I’m looking forward to finishing the blog week with a beautiful ‘before and after’ tour. Make sure you stop by to take a peek!
