A beautiful white home

This home is mainly white, but it has got some nice black details. What I like about this apartment is the mixture of designer and vintage furniture. It makes it more interesting. It simply wouldn't look the same without it! 

I'm a huge fan of art on benches. I'm in the process of doing something similar at home. It's also great when you're renting, so you don't have to make too many holes in the walls.

I also spot a DIY projects - the art behind the sofa. It looks great next to the Pia Wallen cross blanket


The vintage table in this room is what catches my eye. That and the striking black and white poster. The Hans Wegner chairs are great too of course! 

Posters in the kitchen -  so trendy!

This Swedish apartment is full of light, just the way I like it!

Pinbassador - my event in Glasgow

I'm excited to say I've been chosen to be a Pinterest Ambassador (in fact I'm the very first one!). If you follow me on Pinterest you might have noticed that I pin a lot and I'm a passionate Pinterest user.

Pinterest are calling us Pinbassadors. My first event will be held in Glasgow on the 20th August. If you would like to come please send me a message and I'll add you to the list. We'll talk about Pinterest and how we can use the platform. There will be an interior design related workshop too. Pinterest UK will also be present on the day. 

The venue for the night is amazing, award wining South Block. I can't wait! I'm in the middle of organising everything with Pinterest and some very cool interior design related sponsors, as there will be goodie bags for all of the participants. I will of course document the night with lots of photos and a follow up blog post or two. You'll be able to read more about it on the Pinterest blog too. 

The other exciting news is that I'll be featured in The Times this Friday in the Bricks & Mortar Supplement. There's plenty of things happening here, this is not even all, but I'll tell you more later..

Tuesday Tips - DIY VASE

So this Tuesday Tip is a very simple DIY vase. This used to be a glass jar filled with black olives. Instead of taking the glass jar to the bottle bank, I removed the label and decided to do something with it. Not sure if you call this recycling or upcycling or both! 

What you need:
A recycled glass jar
A napkin (or a piece of fabric)

I folded the napkin slightly to make it the right size for my jar. 

Then add some string to keep the napkin in place. 


I think it would look great on a large party table with lots of jars in different sizes. 
Can you picture it?!

I've got some exciting news to share with you tomorrow..

Outside at Mrs Hardy's

Lately I've been dreaming of some outside space. I'm finding it a bit difficult living in an apartment with no outside space. It was fine in the winter, but this summer I've missed some outside space. Especially with a 7 year old, who wants to play fotball all the time.. ! It was so different in France where he could go outside and play whenever he wanted. I've not been blogging much as I've chosen to spend time with Magnus and also we've been at the park a lot! 

I think a covered terrace would be ideal here as it of course rains a lot in Scotland. On the inspiring blog Mrs Hardy I've found a very pretty outside space. Manuela is a DIYer, but also an architect. She comes up with lots of great ideas. She made the dining table herself. I think her covered dining area is just perfect! It's ready for a great evening with friends. 

Wouldn't it be fantastic to be able to hang up artwork outside? 

Not only is the dining space beautiful, the entire space is just perfect. I love the raised flower box, also made by Manuela. It acts as a separation and defines the area, but also as a backrest to the bench/sofa. It looks really comfortable with all those lovely cushions.

I guess I should stop dreaming. It's back to work for me! 
Hope you're enjoying the summer!!

Tuesday Tips - DIY clothing rail

This Tuesday Tip is a DIY that doesn't require a lot of time. To make this clothing rail all you need is a coffee table leg and some screwsNot only is this DIY quick, it's inexpensive too. 

This is a great way of displaying a few nice things in your bedroom. I think it could work in a hallway too. It would also look great in a clothes or furniture shop. How would I use this clothing rail in a furniture shop? I would display blankets on the coat hangers.

If you don't have copper coat hangers you can easily spray paint some standard ones with some copper spray paint. It's not more complicated than that.

Next weeks tip is also a quick and inexpensive.

My Attic Bedroom

I keep saying how important it is to be personal in decor, so when I saw this bedroom by My Attic I had to show you. Marij has brought together some little treasures from her travels. It's so different. I'm loving all these patterns! Very graphic.

Doesn't it look great?
