The living room is slowly coming together...decorating really takes time - well for me it does and it's a never ending process and really also should be. We still need a lot of furniture and also I desperately need to put something on the walls, because I feel a home with empty walls is not really a home. We also need some green plants, I'm thinking palm tree type of greenery to play up the ethnic look.

I don't like shopping at department stores or furniture shops, in fact all our furniture is found on online market spaces and some of the decor is also found at flea markets. I can't wait to attend a huge flea market later this month and hope to find some amazing pieces to add to our decor.

My love for old furniture has to do with the fact that I don't like my home to look like anyone else's - I like that a lot of the pieces in our home or unique and one of a kind.

I also have a huge love for Malene Birger's decor line Birger1962, and since everything is 60% off at Roomstore I'll find any excuse to add yet another of the beautiful ethnic pieces to my own decor. Both the blanket on the sofa, the pillow with pompoms, the tassels on the lamp, the floor pillow and the candles are Biger1962.

I hope that we can travel to Morocco ourselves, so I can bring home ethnic African finds from the souks too, but the pieces from Birger1962 are as close as you get to finding those special pieces yourself without going travelling and it's like having a little part of Malene's own decor in your home and you know, how much I love her. Looking forward to her launch of A Journey this summer - everything she touches is so special and beautiful.
