Nesting will become even more importaint in the future. Staying at home will become a luxury. We will enjoy the relaxing and calm space that our home provides. These pictures tell us a story of wellbeing and comfort.

Dreaming of a view



This house just blew me away. Look at the amazing large window that flips.. It is made by Olson Kundig Architects. I would move in any second with that view in the morning.

Patina




Via: JJJound & Pinterest

This industrial feel of pictures and settings have really got me. It is nice as a contrast to the clean cut scandinavian style that usually inspires me. Organized clutter and patina is really quite beautiful.

Windows

I love the large industrial windows...



Christmas decoration




I am not much for traditional christmas decorations and were therefor delighted when I found this picture of
a centerpiece made by acorns. Clean and simple, just the way I like it. So now I have to get out in to the woods for some material hunting.

Paper



Ilvy Jacobs from Holland have made these very creative and beautiful paperbags. I think there is a strong trend right now, working with paper in art and designmatters.

Blackboard





I am just on my way to paint a blackboard wall in my sons room. Hopefully it will look as good as the pictures above.

More lighting

This lighting comes from Area in San Francisco and is a DIY project. We need all the light we can get this time of year.

Serge Mouille

This is the lamp. Made by perfection. If I ever win the lotto, this is what I will buy first. It was made by Serge Mouille (1922-1988) in France.

Working on it...

Watercolours






I am a big fan of Sara Sandstrom and her beautiful drawings. They are inspiring both in colours and motif. I do a lot of drawing, generally in acrylic but I would love to try out watercoloring.
