Sunny Mod

Not too long ago I stumbled upon this gorgeously updated credenza via the blog SFGirlbythebay.  I immediately fell in love with the cheery, bright color scheme juxtaposed with the deep wood tones and general stateliness of the the piece itself.

Upon further exploration, I was able to pinpoint the designer, Jan Skácelik, and even came across her interior design blog, Design Attractor, which is filled with amazing, Scandinavian design references and inspiration.  But perhaps the most inspiring photos are those of Jan’s own home in Czech Republic (sourced via Houzz).

With equal nods to Scandinavian minimalist design and her own nod to the importance of color and graphic design, Jan’s living space is refreshing and dynamic.  I especially am in love with the ochre sofa.  I mean seriously…how many of us would see that sofa in a store and wonder who in their right mind would ever purchase such a bold piece.  Well, thankfully, Jan had the vision and I just can’t get over how well it grounds the whole room.

I also found this moment in the corner with the expertly lacquered, mid-century piece, to be so lively and refreshing.  The white, ceramic pieces are the perfect collection for this corner.

The large scale print and clean lined shelves give balance to a small, but efficient work space.

And speaking of that large scale print, Jan is also a skilled  graphic designer – an example of which is below, but I urge you to check out her Etsy shop, ReStyle, as there are so many candy-colored, retro-inspired prints I had a very difficult time choosing just one to show here.

I was so glad to come across Jan’s home and work in my internet perusing.  Her style and point of view is certainly refreshing during this gray month of November.

What’s the sunniest piece in your home?
