I am totally in love with this apartment which is for sale. It belongs to the woman behind the iconic fashion brand Filippa K. Her style is flawless yet personal and everything is stunningly put together like her fashion collections always are.
If money is no issue then here is the link to the estate agent:)
IKEA is starting to sell outdoor furniture even though it's still winter because that's how Swedish and all Scandinavian people work. Even though it's snow and cold outside, if there is just a little bit of sunshine, we sit on the balcony or in the garden and pretend spring has arrived and summer is surely just around the corner:) I love the way IKEA has captured that in their ads.
Plants! They are such a wonderful way to bring life and color into your home and an added bonus is that it’s really good for you. Most plants clean the air so what better reason do you need to buy some beautiful plants and place them wherever you like. I won’t pester you with lots of decorating rules about what is correct and not I will just say please people NO crawling plants that you can swirl around a bookcase or other furniture –keep them trimmed and neat looking. Also make sure to clean them. Plants need to be dusted off like the rest of your furniture both because it looks the best but also because plants can’t thrive with a layer of dust on them:) A little inspiration...
Happy New Year. Its the beginning of a new year and at our home it means that al the christmas decorations are packed away and I always use that opportunity to clear away even more things. It's a chance to look at my home with fresh eyes: When things are brought back to basic it makes us think of new ways to put things back. What should be put in a new place - what was already perfect as it was. January can be such a dark month but buy some tulips and put in a pretty vase and you can find true beauty in the simplest of things. I have found some pictures to inspire you - it's simple and minimalist homes. Not because you need to make your home look like this but to make you see things in a new light perhaps.
One of my biggest dreams when it comes to decorating my home is to have a fireplace in the kitchen I think it would be so wonderful and nothing creates an atmosphere of warmth and intimacy like a fireplace. The kitchen is the heart of the household and that’s why I think it would be so amazing to have a fireplace there instead of in the living room which is more ordinary. The only thing more luxurious then a fireplace in the kitchen would be a fireplace next to your bathtub – but that is another story for another day:)
Halloween is in exactly 1 week today. We are all familiar with pumpkins carved with funny faces and the kids love to help with creating them and lighting them afterwards. I thought I would show you some ideas of how you can also decorate pumpkins for halloween.
Nate Berkus is fantastic and the spaces that he creates are wonderful. Listen to him talk about his new New York apartment and what thoughts he had about the space. Love his take on how to create a personal space.
Fall is upon us and the days feel darker. This time of year it’s natural to look at your home with fresh eyes to see what you might be able to do to change and make small improvements. I work from home and today I was sitting at my desk and felt like I needed to do something different with the space. Often it is not a lot that is needed to have a big impact on a space. A new poster, a vase with a fresh flower, a pretty cup to drink your coffee from, a pretty notebook, new pencils or how about a scented candle to instantly change the mood and atmosphere of your space: Here are a few office spaces that I find inspirational.
Many homes have one or several rooms with wooden floors. A trend we are seeing more and more of is to paint your floors in wonderful patterns or colours. It creates an amazing effect in the room and is not as difficult to do as it may seem at first. Find a patterns that you love and have it printed in the size you wish and use it as a template. Remember to ask at your local paint store for advice on what paint to use as it needs to be hardwearing for you to be able to walk on it. Here are a few pictures for inspiration.
Summer is over and fall is officially here. Have you ever heard of a fall bucket list before? I hadn't until today and I am wondering how I have lived without it. Such a great idea - personally I am hoping to complete most of the ideas on this list. Have fun and be inspired.
