A lovely family home in a former kindergaten

Our Christmas tree was cast out last night (always a sad moment!). This can only mean one thing: it's time for early spring, I even brought some tulips (optimist)! What better way to kick off the season than the lovely home of Britta and her daughter Emma Lotta in Oldenburg, Germany? Britta is influenced by Scandinavian style (she works as an interior design specialist for IKEA) and has decorated the space using a monochrome and pastel colour scheme. Her abode also reminds me of  some of the Dutch spaces we've seen (such as this and this home) so I wasn't surprise to discover she also enjoys design inspiration trips to Holland. The beautiful old building used to be a kindergaten and has now been transformed into a lovely, harmonious home decorated with a mix of IKEA pieces, vintage finds and nordic design items thanks to Britta's innate sense of style. Bring on spring pastels!

Anything you love about this home in particular?

I love the entrance hall- it's simply stunning!! (more hallway inspiration here).  

A few items I know and love - if helpful?: Sitting room: J110 Hay chair, Lenn Bakker grey carpet, stockholm black and white rug, Karlstad sofa.  Kitchen: Industrial pendant lights: IB Laursen, the dining table is vintage,  the Shelf and chair are from IKEA. Office: chair and table, IKEA. Brakig boxes, Lenn bakker decorative boxes. Children's room: many of the items can be found at IKEA. Pastel pom poms. The print is man in the moon.

You can see more pictures of this lovely home here (interview in German).

PS The US version of the free My Scandinavian Home Calendar 2015 is now fixed and ready for you to print! I'm currently looking for pictures of 'February' to show here on the blog - so if you have a fun pic please do send it over!

Have a lovely day!
