Our Guest on the blog today is artist and stylist Emilia Ilke from Stockholm. She shares her stunning home – which was originally a school in the 50’s – with partner Frekar and son Igor (2,5 years). We fell in love with her home on her Instagram account @emiliailke, yet getting to know her a bit better, we started to love her art, use of material and colors just as much. And as true fans, we are very happy to have her as our guest.
It has been a good summer. It has been a long break. Slowly things are getting back to normal and we are very ready for it. Our holiday was filled with family time in France and catch-ups with friends. Long lazy days outdoors were compensated by some (very appreciated) Disneyland madness. Besides our French adventures we had time to work on our Live Loud Girl Stays holiday home. We did some incredible sourcing and got inspired in some of our favorite newly discovered stores.
As stylists, we are all about getting some inspiration during the vacation. We love traveling, finding new materials, styles and trends. And we can’t keep ourselves from visiting interior shops and markets when we are abroad. Our holiday plans most always include staying in a capital city where our carefully planned lunch address (with a beautiful interior) is just coincidentally around the corner from a store that has been on the ‘must visit’ wishlist. Yes, gathering inspiration during our vacation is of a high priority.
Summer is here! We will be having a break from the office yet also have a very exciting design job to look into. Live Loud Girl Stays is our own three bedroom home on the Dutch coast. A place to go to in our school holidays. A place to rent out to who ever wants to experience the true Live Loud Girl style.
