As a fan of N.E.E.T. Magazine, I've always admired their ability to find the most inspiring things from around the world. Fashion, beauty, eco interviews, finds of the day - all with a truly N.E.E.T. feel. The homes category is a great insight into the stylish pads of others from around the globe.
I love the Scandinavian feel of this bedroom, and funnily enough it's in Malmö, Sweden. I think it's the wooden floors and clean, straight lines. And the 12" on the walls. And those woven rugs. Lovely.
Bringing a bit of the outdoors in with this wooden crate is such a novel idea, and standing it on its side is pure genius. This is also from Sweden, they're just such stylish people.
The big, bright windows make this sitting room feel fresh, and the mismatched soft furnishings give it character. I really like the neutral walls - it means that the colour palette is built up with the accessories and that particularly nice yellow dolls house. The children's alphabet blocks are an interesting alternative to the usual wordy decorations, with the added bonus of being able to say different things. This one's from California.
Keeping all those pretty, sparkly rings to hand is a great idea, and a cake stand is the perfect way to show them off. I'm waiting patiently for the day when I can have my own window seat, and a lifetime's collection of books to read in it. This beauty is from Idaho.
