I'm so happy you all loved Annaleenas post yesterday!
Today I'm back with a long row of photos from the house of a Belgian designer, shot by Tim van de Velde. The minimalist look is softened by textiles in earthy hues, natural wood and a few pops of bright colors. The part I like best is the kitchen, it looks just like a restaurant kitchen and I love those.
What you have to do to have a chance to win this print is simply go to The Nordic Art House website and find your favorite product, then come back here and comment on this post, telling me which piece of art you liked best. The giveaway is open until Friday (21/1), and then I will randomly draw a winner. Good luck! The competition is closed.

Translated into rooms, it could look something like this:
Grey, black and wood, with a little drama added by the dress on the divan.
A wooden cabinet against a wood panel background, with some rustic sourdough bread.
A mix of different woods and a bunny, but it could just as easily have been a deer head.
Then we have this room below, which I clearly remember from when I watched Twin Peaks for the first time. I was only 11 but it obviously made a big impression. The chevron pattern is coming strong again, but I'm not so sure about the red drapes... A bit too dramatic for real life in my opinion.
H&M Home made some nice chevron patterned products to let you take this pattern into your own home.
Alcro's AD paint collection by Li Edelkoort from last year still works. This red hue is a lot easier to live with, and see how great it looks with wood and grey? Mixed with green it reminds me of flanel shirts, which were EVERYWHERE in the tv series. The checkered pattern of the shirts will work great for this year too, not only in decorating but in fashion too.
The Log Lady is super trendy! Logs are used in interior decorating, not just in baskets near the fireplace, but in other ways too...
Like this storage wall built of logs, by Studio St Paul. They managed to combine two of the biggest trends right now, crates and logs, in a great way. Notice the elk horns in the upper left corner too.
I also believe that 2011 will be the year when the overly sweet cupcakes will finally go out of fashion and get replaced by... you guessed it! Doughnuts!
Update! The rest of the photos were removed, but they will be published in the Dutch Magazine 101 Woonideeen in June.
