IKEA Malmo | Creative Hub

Creativity is taken very seriously in the IKEA world. In my experience I have witnessed the most creative meeting rooms, brainstorming areas, work rooms and the like in IKEA offices in various parts of the globe.

In Malmö is the creative headquarters allowing groups of people to work as teams and even to work alone. These rooms explore both dark and light expressions, quiet or busy + collaborative, formal as well as informal.

 This white room is perfect for a brainstorming explosion where co-workers can draw or write on whiteboard walls. Now how's that for being creative!

An Interior Designer's Home For Sale

Traveling for work has taken up most of my time lately, so forgive me for my absence. My search for inspiring images to share on here continues, and I'm happy to be back home and get back to it...

Wouldn't it be a dream to live in a designer's former home? Though we all have our own specific styles, their having lived in that house covers half of the work you need to do the space (if you even need to do anything to it at all). Elisabeth Heier's previous flat is now up for grabs and it truly is a dream. I wouldn't change a thing. Plus, it is located in my favorite area in Oslo - Grünerløkka.

View here for the ad of this home for sale.

Apartments with utmost Sophistication

Being a fan of one of the best contemporary interior designers today, Lotta Agaton, it is never a surprise when she stirs up jaw-dropping new designs, especially when they are far from what initially grabbed me years passed. Her monochromatic interiors with black accents were my original love at first sight projects. But most recently her work has evolved into a more neutral palette with different wood stains from pale to shades of caramel. The sophistication is endless.

Her latest work consists of city dwellings with contemporary, minimal design with utmost sophistication. Think luxury but with warmth.

Mono Greys and Natural Wood

The IKEA EKEBOL double-duty sofa looking its best in this styling job by Swedish stylist Pella Hedeby. The soft flax-coloured linens, plywood and monochromatic dark greys are stunning together. I love it when ALEX drawers create a bank of low surface like a classic credenza. So many ideas in so little space!
