Intentionally Bl□nk


Ceilings are a commonly neglected space in room design, but when they are done well, they can be amazing. Sometimes, with the right shade of paint, ceilings can make for a stunning statement. The rich, dark blue ceiling adds sophistication to this dining and living room, creating the perfect backdrop for the contemporary furniture pieces. A nice compliment to the ceiling tone is the kitchen in a lighter blue shade. Subtle yet impactful, the pale pink shade gives the bedroom a brilliant glow, while not making the space too overwhemingly pink. Overall a very inspirational apartment which will constantly draw your gaze upwards.

Tulum completely blew me over and will see me back real soon!

One of the difficulties with visiting Tulum is deciding which hotel to stay in since the choices are endless, but we couldn’t have had a better experience in the newly opened Alea Tulum.

All of the rooms face the ocean, which means you’ll never miss one of the stunning sunrises. We decided for a swim-up suite on the ground floor, which was amazing being able to step out on our balcony and into the pool. The access to the beach is right at our doorstep as well, and is perfect for relaxing since Alea is a bit away from the bustling of inner Tulum. There are sunbeds scattered around and the use of paddle boards and kayaks is free (we enjoyed our little kayak trip very much, the water is perfectly clear and it gives you a nice view of the beach) or you can walk down their pier to swing on the hammocks.

As far as design, the architecture and interior details are both modern and timeless, and fit very well in the trendy upcoming vibe of Tulum. The facade is made of light stone, and I love the perforated concrete front facade, pairing perfectly with the balcony railings in the back. The restaurant is in an all wooden construction, providing a nice contrast to the heavy materials and allowing for a calming atmosphere (especially in the morning for jetlagged people like us ;)).

One huge plus goes to Alea’s included breakfast, which was probably the best breakfast I’ve ever had in a hotel; from a beloved cappuccino and fresh orange juice to delicious strawberry jam, and your choice from 5 different appetizers and 8 entrees, it’ll be sure to satisfy any flavor you’re craving.



My first thought on this stylish home was ‘what a brave living room color’; it’s kind of a mix between pink and beige, but with a very sophisticated touch. The art works as well as the light fixture add a certain graphic feel, which stand out very well against the nude walls. Even though I probably wouldn’t go for such a bold living room color, it definitely gives this home a fabulous, unique look.

It’s starting to feel a lot like spring in this Stockholm apartment! Floaty linens, soft panels, and the use of wooden furniture pieces make for a charming, yet calm atmosphere. The few black items in the living room add some depth to the space, and create the perfect home to welcome the slowly rising temperatures outside.
