A home inside the shell of a magnificent old warehouse

Someone left a little note in the comment section last week asking for more colour. Being into Scandinavian style I have to admit to being... er... more than a little colour shy (as you know!). However, I stumbled across this lovely space in a magnificent converted warehouse (styled by Australian homeware store Hunting for George) the other day and felt that although it's not positively bursting with colour, it does feature lovely pops of blue, pink, yellow and orange as well as some fab artwork which might just add a little ray of sunshine to someone's day! Checkout the beautiful decayed brickwork, high ceilings and magnificent arched windows too!

What a fabulous space! Wouldn't it be amazing to live in a conversion? So much history!

If you'd like to achieve a similar look to this home featured, many of the items can be found at Hunting for George.

I also love these converted schools, warehouses, barns, bars and vicarages.

I've been lucky enough to visit not one but two converted schools lately. You might remember my friend Louise's home which went on the market a few weeks back (there was my chance damn it!). And we also photographed a wonderful apartment in an old school house in Norway for The Scandinavian Home
. It belonged to artist Maria Øverby and was suoer relaxed and full of character and inspiring details, the team had to drag me out of there at the end of the day!

Do you live in a conversion of some sort? If so, I'd love to hear about it!

Have a great day!

PS If you're thinking of visiting Copenhagen this weekend you must head to the Finders Keepers design market with over 200 amazing designers selling their wares! I'm giving away two VIP tickets here!

PPS Do feel free to leave ideas for anything you'd like to see more of here on My Scandinavian Home - I love receiving comments and hearing what you have to say about the homes I feature, as well as tips on what you'd like to see!
