light and classic Nordic home...

October 28, 2018

This light and classic home is so beautiful. I have been thinking of painting the walls a colour in some of our rooms at home, but I must admit that I love the clean and classic feel of white walls. Keeping the walls white it's easy to change the look of a room just with accessories.

Black and white are the main colours in this home warmed up with colour in form of lamps, art and flowers. I really like the surprising use of light pink, like the chair in the dining room and the old pink dresser adds a vintage feel to this home.


autumn wreath...

October 24, 2018

It's my favourite time of the year! Autumn is just so beautiful - the changing of nature's many colours and the fresh, crisp air. I love bundling up wearing warm sweaters and hiding indoors with lit candles and warm cocoa, when it's windy, dark and rainy out... I'm such a homebody, so this time of year fits me oh so well.

Every autumn I make a couple of wreaths to have indoors and there are so many beautiful dried flowers if you walk around in nature or in this case - my mum's garden. I used 5 different ones in this wreath with hydrangeas being the main flower. Hydrangeas are so beautiful and they will last all winter if you take them in to dry now, before it gets too wet out. I love them dried in vases, in wreaths or other decorations.

I made a base of two willow branches with wire around and started adding flowers in small bouquets using the wire to make them stay in place. It really took no time at all. Just remember to pick more flowers than you think you'll need. I had to go an extra round in my mum's garden to have enough of all the flowers, but ended up with enough flowers to make two wreaths - one for my mum and one for my grandma.

I'm no specialist in flowers or in making wreaths at all, but I liked the result. Use the wreath on the table and add pillar candles in the middle or hang it in the home or on your door.

boy fall wardrobe...

October 10, 2018

Contains affiliate links // Each season I write one of these posts with inspiration. This one is the boy fall wardrobe - I'll do one for girls soon too. I have been waiting to do it, since I wanted to see what the different brands has to offer for the season. This year I don't need to buy Adam a new coat, since he fits the Burberry one I bought preloved last year, but that classic one from Søstjernen is really nice too. 

Like every season I love Caramel, but brands like Omibia also have some great pieces. I always buy Adam a few more pricey pieces from Caramel and mix them with more affordable pieces. I especially love Caramel for their trousers, sweaters and shirts for boys - they are so comfy and have a classic fit that can be worn season after season and can be handed down, when Adam grows out of them. He's now a size 4, but I always buy size 6 in shirts - this way he'll have loads of wear out of them.

I now find it harder to find pieces for him on the highstreet other than in Cos and sometimes Arket, now that he's grown out of the Zara Baby Boy line, but in general I'll rather buy a few good quality pieces that are more expensive than loads from highstreet brands.

I also recommend checking the outlet at SMALLABLE - I have bought some really nice pieces for both Adam and our little girl at 50-70% off from brands like Caramel and Album Di Famiglia.

Warm home with Moroccan rugs...

October 7, 2018

Moroccan rugs, warm wood floors and beautiful greys on the walls... I love how the use of the colourful Moroccan rugs warms up the feel of this home. It's cosy and classic at the same time. The grey walls add depth to the rooms and the choice to do darker floors, instead of bleaching them, works so well with the colours. I especially love the rug in the last picture - it's so beautiful. The owner of the home actually sell these beauties on her web shop
