8. Malin Persson, Malmo
A peaceful Swedish home with a bold, dark colour palette and inviting children's toys. We particularly love the creative display of the many varieties of houseplants.
7. Emily Quinton, London
Makelight Founder Emily Quinton lives in this London home with her husband and four children. There is a huge emphasis on collaborative living spaces, with child friendly design elements in every room. We particularly love the monster artwork above, a project by the entire family.
6. Nina van de Goor, Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands
Ceramicist Nina's home features a 'gooey mix of street art and highbrow design' and the result is a fun and ever changeable creative backdrop to her family's everyday life.
