This Modern Loft in Berlin Could Be Yours
By email@example.com (Blog Milk Shop)
I’d be quite happy to wile a way the day on that rooftop soaking up the sun – how about you?!
Is there anything else that caught your eye?
I’ve shown many, many Berlin spaces here on My Scandinavian Home. A few of my latest favourites include this striking apartment with a boho touch, a mid-century inspired home and an inspiring living space full of contrast. Or if it’s lofts you’re after – you MUST check out this archive – so many wonderful spaces!
Have a lovely day!

Lingerie Guide: Angela Friedman AW 17
By Julia Childs
Versatility and luxury are both essential when it comes to choosing your key staples for your lingerie drawer. Angela Friedman understands this fact, likely due to her time spent designing delicate ballet costumes. Her self-titled line ethically produces pieces that feel like a soft secret wrapped around your naked body.
Her AW17 offerings, aptly titled “The Classics Collection,” asks lingerie novices and experts alike to reimagine what classic underpinnings look like. With a keen attention to structure, each piece is reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour. Designed to be easily integrated into your pre-existing wardrobe as well as Angela Friedman’s previous releases, “The Classics Collection” is an ode to simple pleasures. Explore the latest offerings here.

Babe Next Door: Get to Know Blooming Star Bailee Mykell
By Julia Childs
Bailee Mykell is a rising star who has the presence of an established great. She serves delicate grace with her kind and warm demeanor while somehow dripping with sex appeal. The Utah-raised, Los Angeles-based actress hit the ground running upon her arrival in the city of angels and hasn’t stopped hustling ever since. Captured by Chris Swainston, she is equal parts girl-next-door and seductress. The best part of all? She’s sweet as can be. Don’t believe me? Have a read for yourself.
LF: Why acting? At what point in your life did you realize this was your passion?
BM: I don’t think there was a certain point or exact moment. I’ve always felt passionate about transforming into different characters through modeling. Eventually, I was lucky enough to be given the chance to translate that passion into work on screen and from there my love for it just continued to grow. It’s given me a chance to tap into emotions that I wouldn’t necessarily get to explore through modeling. It’s a whole new animal and I’m really just grateful to have the chance to pursue it.
LF: Do you crave freedom or order? Do you think these two things can co-exist?
BM: I never want to limit myself or become too structured. A lot of aspects of my life, career or personal, rely on the fact there is a fluidity to my life. On the fact that I have the ultimate say in what I do and how I do it or that I’m free to express myself in my craft. However, without a little order, I tend to run in circles. I am definitely someone that gets excited and wants to make sure I’m using every opportunity to its fullest extent but sometimes that can be distracting. So yes, it’s absolutely necessary that they co-exist. At least for me.
LF: Has a role you’ve ever had to play or study affected you personally? If so, how?
BM: Absolutely. I think each of them do. Jumping into any role is jumping into another person. Leaving yourself behind and embracing a completely different set of emotions and values. I think that will always affect me personally at least a little. It’s hard not to become more aware of empathy or lack-there-of when you constantly step into someone else’s head. I am about to jump into two new roles that will be shooting throughout the fall. One of which is a character that very much has the same fears and insecurities that I sometimes find in myself. It will definitely be my most difficult role, but this time because I have to learn how to harness so much of what is already there.
LF: Where do you see yourself in five years?
BM: I never know how to answer this question. So much of the progress and joy in my life in the last year can be credited to chance. Even though it is literally one of the hardest things to do, I’ve found myself taking things day by day. I’ve found that if I’m spending as much of my time as I can focusing on the task at hand and giving it everything that I have, then pursuing the next one comes with a little more ease. Five years? I want to be happy and hardworking. That’s all I can really hope for.
LF: How do you define love?
BM: Can you? I know that I consider myself to be a very loving person… Maybe too loving at times. I try to love unconditionally and selflessly and I think that is a big part of it. Love, I mean. Its being true to you and knowing the other person wants nothing but that and knowing that even if it’s in a hut on the edge of the world somewhere, you’ll survive with nothing but them. And water, obviously you need water, too.
LF: Who are your top five muses?
BM: I don’t have a list. But, a lot of what I grab inspiration from is the way I choose to live each day. Whether it’s the places that I’ve traveled to who I surround myself with. I’m really lucky that I have such an incredible support system surrounding me and friends who push themselves harder than almost anyone I’ve ever known. It’s easy to consider any one of my friends a muse/inspiration because they truly do inspire and push me without even meaning to.
LF: What is at the top of your bucket list?
BM: I think everything on my bucket list is honestly at the top. On one hand, I feel as though I have accomplished so much. But most days, I feel like I’ve just barely gotten started. As far as career challenges are concerned, it changes daily, which I honestly love. There are a lot lists that you’d find anywhere that say “travel” or “buy a house.” But I think I had to decide – I want to be the best I can be at what I do, I want to be a great mama some day, have a kid or two and give them a beautiful life, and honestly just to spend my own life with my friends and my family making new things.
LF: How fast do you live?
BM: I’d like to say fast, but I’m the queen of finding the snooze button in the morning.

Old meets new in a beautiful Finnish home
By firstname.lastname@example.org (My Scandinavian Home)
Photography: Maija Rasila / Pihkala.
Such a lovely space, don’t you think? So fresh! If you follow Maija’s blog you’ll see how the house is becoming more and more cosy as each layer is added (even though it’s in Finnish she always adds a short summary in English at the bottom of each post). I write a lot about taking your time to decorate a home in my book The Scandinavian Home – I think it’s a vital part of transforming a house into a home. What are your thoughts on this?
Get the look from Maija’s lovely home: Sitting room – Artek Beehive light, Menu afteroom lounge chair, Tisca rug. Dining room – Eames chairs, art by Juhani Melender. Bedroom – William Morris wallpaper, Mantis sconce, white bed linen set. Hallway: Morris & co wallpaper.
If you’d like to see more Finnish homes today (hey, I’m in!), you might want to take a scroll through this archive (if this home comes up first simply got to the next) – Yup, those Finns really do know a thing or two about design! Can’t wait to see more at the fair!
Right…. better finish packing, I’ve got a flight to catch! Weeeee!
Have a lovely day!
PS Happy to see my tips on ‘how to get Scandi-style on a budget‘ in Ideal Home magazine this week!

Live FAST Radio: Soft Serve 001 with Rae Witte
By Rae Witte
Whether it’s an afternoon thumbing through your favorite mag (the one with the good paper), ripping down a highway on a road trip, procrastinating putting yourself together to meet a date, or lazily laying in your bed in the sunshine staring at the ceiling, nothing seamlessly adds to each of these moments quite like the proper playlist.
Each month I’ll be providing a soundtrack to enhance your everyday. Artists you know and love will be included, but I’ll be curating playlists in hopes you’ll find your favorite new artist or a song that you just can’t take off repeat. I want it to sound like a bedhead, heartbreak, and strawberry milk rolled into one hour. All I need from you is to feel something.

Apartment Villa Lobos is a minimal home located in São Paulo, Brazil, designed by Felipe Hess. The protagonist of this 400sqm apartment is the view of the trees of a quiet corner of the Villa-Lobos park. The entire social area, fully integrated as a request of the new owners, opens on it, starting from the living room, which connects directly with the balcony. Few and light materials distributed all over the apartment, come to reinforce the integration: clear wood flooring, gray and white stones and the light carpentry. The big tauari wood carpentry connects all the spaces, starting as a bookshelf on the living room, embracing the sofa and becoming a sideboard for the tv and, eventually, the buffet for the dining room. This integrates to the all-white kitchen through an island made out of white stone where friends and family use to gather. The same tonalities and materials can be found in the four suites, two of which can be integrated to increase the children play area. The neutrality of the finishes, reminiscence of Nordic moods, serves as a background for the works of art and the precise design pieces.
