MADE MODERN

20.8.16

I would like to extend a warm welcome to my newest sponsor! Made Modern only opened their online store in the spring of 2015, but already I can see that is made of great things. They offer a beautifully curated selection of less known names, often offering products that are new to the UK. They also offer some of the classic Scandinavian brands. Hop over and take a look. I promise, you won't be disappointed :)

I think this is my favourite colour-way of the Cross blanket by Pia Wallen.  Delicious.

We actually have large and mini in stock now. Seriously, this is rare.

SUMMER THINGS

The days are passing so quickly and before we know it, it will be autumn (which I love by-the-way), but I also love the last lazy weeks of summer. So with this in mind I wanted to share the summer to-do list that I've been kind of doing, but not with any focus. So here you go. What are your must-do things for the summer?

1. Swim in the sea
2. BBQ on the beach
3. Eat tacos and drink margaritas while the sun sets
4. Lay on the ground and look at the stars
5. Make ice-cream
6. Picnic in the forest
7. Take a day time nap with the window open and feel the breeze
8. Watch a play in an open air theatre
9. Pick wildflowers and blueberries (Iceland)
10.Walk barefoot through the grass

BKR WATER BOTTLE

17.8.16


Can I be in love with a water bottle? Absolutely.  Using plastic food and drinks containers with regard to our health has been such a hot topic lately. It's something I'm really conscious of and I try to steer clear of plastic as much as possible. I use these for baby bear, which I love, but the BKR Water Bottle is just perfect for me.

Beautiful work by Claykat Ceramics.

APARTMENT IN STOCKHOLM

28.7.16





Wow I love this place, it's very almost perfect. It's inspired me to use some more pastels and less contrast in my new place. Talking of new places, we are house hunting like crazy - nothing seems to fit for us. I guess when we walk in to the right one, we will know. Until then it's back to our old apartment for a few months - with three of us now, plus a cat, it's going to be cosy to say the least :)

PUGLIA, ITALY

19.7.16




These hazy pictures in relaxing pastels really appeal to me today. What I would do to just jump in that beautiful blue ocean right now! I'm sat at my desk in front of a fan in 30 degree heat - it's hot. I'll have a swim later :)

PHOTO BOOK

I was given this for my birthday last week by my very special friend Mel. It's a beautiful photo book crammed full of super-cute photos of my baby bear. I am just so in love with it and am incredibly touched by the effort - it really is something so special.  Thank you darling girl, I love you to the moon and back x

VÄKST

15.6.16




I'm having something of a love affair with plants and greenhouses at the moment. We are house hunting and one of my definite requirements is a greenhouse in the garden. I cannot wait to spend time in my little glass house. 

This new restaurant that is a large greenhouse in the centre of Copenhagen has that "green" feeling I'm hankering after and no doubt the food as awesome too.  I just returned from Denmark yesterday, but was not in Copenhagen, but next time I'm there I'm eating here for sure!

MELO

Beautiful pieces and excellent styling by Swedish Melo Studio.  I never tire of the white, grey + wood palette.

PETITE & SMALL

25.5.16

Since I had my baby boy, I’ve spent many hours browsing the web looking for gorgeous things. A little place in the www called Petite and Small was the perfect place to start. They are a blog that specialise in all things mini. They write some really great posts about new products, crafts and provide lots of helpful ideas and tips for decorating your little ones room.


They also have a fantastic store directory, which is great when looking for cute things to buy.  Hop over to have a look, I guarantee you will be there for a while!

PEACEFUL

There’s something peaceful about this image. The texture and simplicity just enhance its composition.

BY PERMAFROST

Such beauty and simplicity in kid’s toys is rare. “Archipelago” and “Shipping” by Norwegian Design house Permafrost are perfectly hand- crafted wooden pieces. They peak above the surface and tell a maritime story. Just beautiful.
