Wonderful lamps

It´s been ages (literally) since my last post (I'm rotten to the core now aint I?). My sincere apologies for crappy updates and this time a real promise to pop in more frequently :)

The lamp above is a huge favorite of mine. I hope to get two of these for the living room. What do you think, aren't they just fabulous? The color scheme of my living room would be quite natural (brown, white, taupe, grey and black with a few accents in red, white and blue. I'd love to hear your opinions.

I wish you all a fantastic summer evening!

With promises to see you soon

While the constant fall of snow seems never to seize and warmer times seems an eternity ahead, you can often find yourself dreaming away. For the moment my dream would be to experience spring in Boston, while staying at Clink, an old jail transformed into a luxury hotel. Don't you think the entrance looks magnificent? I'd love to stay there, if only for a few nights. They've kept certain features from the time when it was a jail, which I find only makes the place even more interesting.

Ralph Lauren

Each season I eagerly await the new collection from Ralph Lauren Home and I have yet to be disappointed. The pictures above show two of my favourites this spring. Approaching warmer seasons I'm drawn to the cool colors of the sea and the sky. I never get tired of the blue and white combo and I love the new rustic look mixing patterns in blues, whites and reds.

Spring - When?

I heard today about the snow in Barcelona, Spain. What is this, will we ever get a new season? It seems all of Europe is experiencing this extreme winter and the spring suddenly feels light years away... At least in this bloggy blog world we can share some inspiration for upcoming seasons.

Wedding inspired by Twilight

I know the Twilight movies have hit it big with audiences all over the world and I admit I'm a fan of the romantic story myself. But who knew a wedding inspired by the Twilight saga could be this stunning. It's absolutely stunning, I love it!

Good morning!

The sun is up and the sky is blue, another wonderful day is about to begin. But isn't it just a mystery how the weekends seem to fly by? I'll try to make the best of what's left, so that I don't find myself desperately longing for the next one when I get to see my cherie again. Any tips on fun activities on a regular weekend such as this one?

I hope you all have a good one!

Maisons du Monde part 2

Well, I couldn't leave you just yet. To follow my previous post, I decided to put up some more photos from the most recent collection from Maisons du Monde. This time I've chosen a few photos from their industrial range, aren't they just gorgeous? I love to incorporate industrial elements in the home decor and I think this has been done very well by MdM in the photos above.

I'd also like to welcome my new followers,  I hope my long absence hasn't scared you off.

Tacke care!


Still here

I know it's been an eternity since I last put up a new post, but now I'm finally back. Due to problems with my Internet connection and some lack of inspiration I decided to let my blog rest for almost three months. Now, however I'm filled with inspiration and with my new Internet connection I expect less problems than before.

Here in Sweden the snow has been overwhelming this winter, hence it feels fantastic to be inspired by all the new spring collections from Lexington, Riviera Maison, Restoration Hardware, Ralph Lauren, Gant and the likes.

Maisons du Monde has been one of my favourites for a long time and I recently discovered that they had updated their homepage with several wonderful news. I recommend you warmly to take a look at their current collection at Photos listed above are just a few out of many favourites.

See you soon!

Approaching christmas

With christmas just a few weeks away, I.m now more than ever browsing for inspiration for the upcoming holiday. I like the earthy yet cozy tones of the pictures above and think they would suit my home perfectly. Do you have any thoughts yet on how you will decorate this year, any theme or color scheme? I'm thinking of decorating my christmas tree in glass and silver this year, but I'm not quite sure yet. Do you think it will look too cold? I want the tree to look inviting but with a fresh color scheme. I've also thought about including some elements of taupe.Which idea do you like best?

Grange inspiration

I've been a fan of Grange for some time now, but I've always thought that their collections could use a few pieces deviating from the overall french theme. Imagine my surprise when I found these inspirational photos from their collection, aren't they just gorgeous? Stone walls, industrial feel, yet cozy and warm, I love it!

I'd like to take the chance to thank those of you who often frequent this blog, you are my foremost inspiration!

Maisons du Monde

Due to my long absence I decided to make several posts today. One of my favourite stores (please change your shipping destinations to include Sweden) is Maisons du Monde. I love their affordable yet stylish furniture and there are many things I'd love to get my hands on... The things above are just a few of the highlights from their collection. The industrial collection as well as the marine and colonial collections are my absolute favourites and I think the environmental images are a great source of inspiration.

Christmas feelings

After weeks of problems with my internet connection I'm finally back. It seems winter is now here, we got our first snow yesterday.  I for one could'nt be happier. As you probably know by now I love christmas and look forward to it a great deal in advance. This year's christmas collection from HM Home brings out the right christmas spirit and the things above are a few things I hope to be able to buy. Have you found any christmas favourites this year yet?

Living with a cold sore

Photos courtesy Contry Living

Please forgive my absence the last week. I got a cold sore about a week ago and shallow as I am (apparently) it made me a bit depressed. Nothing seemed to cheer me up, not even some glossy new magazines made the trick, I just went home after work and basically went to bed. It's silly, I know, but I guess the self confidence isn't what it should be. Finally I can see signs of healing, so I guess I don't have to worry too much about becoming an agoraphobic ;).

I got a beautiful present from my beloved boyfriend for my birthday, which I hoped to show you. Unfortunately I need new batteries for my camera again (the last ones I bought were said to last longer than other kinds, which apparently meant 1,5 days), but as soon as I get them I promise to show you. In the meantime these pictures will have to do.

Pottery barn holiday decoration

It's been a while since my last confession, or wait a minute I mean post. In my defence I've celebrated my birthday a few days in advance. Obviously I have to get a grip of myself and spend more time working on the blog, so I'll make another promise and this time I'm intending to keep it. I can't let all my eager readers down now, can I? No, seriously I really appreciate all visitors and am very thankfull for every kind word I get.

I recently found some inspiring pictures at Pottery barn of holiday decoration and I thought I'd share them with you. Those of you with a keen eye will probably notice that not all of them fall within the category but I'm afraid you'll have to overlook that fact.

Good evening!
