A home in rust, clay and aubergine

A stunning apartment accurately styled for the season in strokes of rust, clay and deep aubergine for Fantastic Frank. Even the bathroom has warm pinks and plums to vibe with the accessories around the rest of the house. I love how autumnal the styling in this place feels especially since the weather currently seems to be skipping over Fall and heading straight into Winter. Six months of Autumn wouldn’t be enough, I love this in subtle season, when it actually feels subtle.

Beige: Sunday Sanctuary

  According to the Urban Dictionary, beige is variously described as a pale sandy fawn colour, a grayish tan, a light-grayish yellowish brown, or a pale to grayish yellow.

In Oslo, soft neutrals are accented by chrome



A renovated apartment furnished by Oslo Deco that features neutral walls in shades of grey and large windows allowing plenty of natural light. One of the features of a home that is so important to me is the light, having the home filled with natural light all day long so that you don’t need to use lamps until the evening is the most ideal kind of home.

JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser. Reactivate it to view this content.


Despite the neutral grays and soft colors, this home is also accented by metallic chrome and steel used in lighting pieces, furniture, kitchen hardware, fixtures and other accessories giving it a very modern look. The consistent use of related colors and metal throughout the house brings all the rooms together to create a harmonious look overall.




The bathroom (above) is one of my favorite spaces, outlooking views of the city with more large windows, a suspended mirror and floating cabinets I can imagine this would be a peaceful place to unwind from the day.
