Energy boost






I´ve had one of those days when everything is suppose to be done at the same time and all the energy is gone by the end of the day. When that happens I´ve come to the conclusion that I try to gain the strenght back by using colours. I either paint or just work with graphic shapes in Photoshop, to find the perfect colour combinations.

Macrame revival




For quite some time now, knits have been a trend in interior. Because of my background in fashion I tend to look for common trends between these two worlds. Croché and macrame details on garments are popular and I start to see these elements in interior as well. In a new and modern way thank God... no more 70´s macrame own on the wall. I love the pouf and the bold lampshade. Maybe I have to ask mom how it´s done...

Weather

This blog has nothing to do with weather, but since it´s been raining cats and dogs (love that expression...) together with thunder and lightning for a couple of days now, I couldn´t resist posting this cute illustration.

Costume party




My son Axel is having his first birthday party (turning 3) in a couple of days. It´s going to be a pirat party, so I had a little look on the web to find some inspiration for this event. I just have to share some of the pictures I found, just because they are adorable. Maybe I can convince him to have a dino party next year, emagine the kids runing around in cardbord boxes like the second photo...

Merci


Wow, emagine my chock when I checked the statistics yesterday and noticed an all time high, for the second time this week. Desire to inspire, the Canadian / Australian blog run by Jo and Kim, had a link to my blog in their "rainy reading guide" post. So, thank you so much for the link, it made my day and was very surprising and flattering.

Black kitchen




Right now I´m obcessed by black kitchens. The first photo is just breathtaking with the mate charcoal together with distressed wooden floor. Maybe it´s not practial for a family with children but one can always dream...

Annabelle Adie





I just fell in love! A minute ago I had a visit over at Elisabeths blog, Lev Livet Leende (who by the way have an amazing webshop, Anyhow) and...bam, these images just blew me away! This is the work of Annabelle Adie, a multi talented person (just reading her workresume made me jealous), who now a days work in ceramics. And it´s not only her pieces I love, it´s the whole styling and colour combination. I would just love to have that giant necklace hanging on my wall!

Sunny memories


Day´s like this, when the sky is grey, I tend to day dream about this summer and all the lovely places we´ve seen. One of these places Åstol, were we went with the boat. It´s the island "next door" from were we spend our summers.. It´s a really smal and pitoresque place with a wonderful restaurant, Åstols rökeri. If you have the chance, I can recommed a visit.  We had a great day with nice food and lots of sun. Mmm, now I´m going back to day dreaming again...

A grey day



Today is such a grey day. The sun is missing, the rain is in the air and the light has turned grey. However, I quite like this colour in interior. It´s calm and makes the furniture stand out. My favorite is raw concrete mixed with some distressed wood. Like it a lot!

Tuesday mix



 




Today I´m showing you a set of photos reflecting my mood today. I would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for visiting my blog. It´s an undiscrible feeling to get the respons and see how many visited my little space. Yesterday was all time high with visitors, and I have many to thank for that but today I would like to send a special thanks to Frida at Trendenser for linking to one of my posts. It was a huge difference in visitors after her post. I hope you´ll stick around...

Contemporary wallpaper





It´s not often I see some really cutting edge items in the interior world. So when I saw the wallpaper designed by Kirath Ghundoo, my jaw droped. Fantastic colours, interesting patterns but most of all I love the way they are supposed to me mix and matched. Unfortunally they wouldn´t work in our house together with the rest of the design, but if I ever get an office of my own, these will be on the wall.

Sunshine yellow






It doesn´t have to be a lot, just enough to make me smile. Nothing makes me feel more alive right now than a splash of yellow somewere in my home.
