I will admit that I do pin a lot. Every so often I come across a photo of a living room that gets hundreds of re pins. This is one of them.  With almost 800 re pins and over 100 likes in less than 24 hours(!) I present this living room.

Why do you think people like this room so much? Is it the Butterfly chair or the skull collection? It’s hard to say, but I think the room is well balanced. It’s looks comfortable and the colours go really well together.  It is a very neutral room with lots of natural light.

I think the best way of adding colours to a room is with accessories – here a green throw and some nice, fresh flowers.  x

It’s been so dark lately it’s been almost impossible to take photos in our flat. This is why this project has been slightly delayed and also cancelled. A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post about the colour Teal and the the fact that I wanted to paint a wall in our living room.  This weeks Tuesday Tips – Plywood Paint Tester makes sense as you don’t have to re-paint the wall if you cange your mind (like I did!). I’ve decided that our flat is too dark for the colour I had chosen and that if I am to re-paint the wall it has to be a much lighter colour.

With a sheet of plywood you’re able to move the board around and try it on different walls, if you haven’t decided which wall to paint. It’s really quick and easy to re-paint the sheet and you only need a testerpot or two. I’m really glad I opted for this solution. x

This minimalist pine tree branch decoration is as simple as it gets, but I think it looks beautiful. The nice shade of green looks nice and fresh on the window sill. You can cut a branch off your Christmas tree or you can go out for a nice walk and find a branch in the woods.  In a bit of water, the branch should last for a good while.

I’m a huge fan of candles in the winter and light them every night.  The “You light up my day” candle is from French Connection. I think it’s about time to find a nice branch to decorate with fairy lights. It gets dark outside around 4 o’clock now,  so it’s time to make it cosy inside. I’m thinking fairy lights, throws and sheepskins. Oh, and scented candles of course!

After another long week, I’m glad it’s the weekend.  I’ve had some fun experiences this week and even spent the whole day yesterday in front of two cameras creating videos (!), but more about that later!

Happy Friday! x

 

 

Don’t you just love it when you find something unique for your Christmas tree? Ever since discovering Etsy, now years ago, I’ve been a huge fan.

These beautiful clay and concrete Christmas decorations are all hand made by creative Etsy members. They would look great in a minimal, trendy home. x

I’m excited to see that Made has expanded their range and added more homewares, to their already nice collection. There are lots of nice new items and they even offer free delivery until Monday. My favourite is the Aurelia Copper Hanging Mirror and I’m thinking about ordering it. Beautiful isn’t it?

Designed by Tina Hellberg, this moody and white living room has got a bit of everything. Moody colours, great fireplace, designer furniture, lots of light from the windows, white walls, beautiful wooden floors and green plants. Perfect in my eyes. 
I guess this is a proof that moody and white works really well together.
 
The black sheepskin rug on the sofa looks lovely. The original Eames rocking chair fits in perfectly in this otherwise “new” room. The mixture of old and new works surprisingly well.

I did it. I went out and bought some hyacinths!

For me Christmas 2014 will be all about white decorations, green plants, scented candles and the odd gold or copper decoration. I want it to be very minimal. If you ask Magnus, age 7, it would be all about Lego… He started his wishlist last night. He has written a whole page with Lego wishes and under every single thing it says – please Santa…

I’m not quite ready to give up my cactus love yet (to move on to Hyacinths and Christmas trees), so I wanted to post this fab all white apartment with a cacti plant urban garden. I think this little garden adds a lot to this room.  The green plants makes it look nice and welcoming.

Check out this door poster DIY project idea! I love creativity, so I had to share this as I’ve never seen anything like it. A framed poster attached to a cupboard door. Looks amazing and totally changes the feel of the room. It adds something interesting. 

I recentlly discovered 3M adhesive strips and think they work really well. If you want to hang something up, like a poster in a frame, you don’t need to make a hole in the wall. Just use one of the strips and it doesn’t leave any marks when you remove it. I think there are also hooks available, but I haven’t tried them yet. If you want to attach a poster onto your cupboard, like in the photo, you could use the strips so you don’t have to glue it on. That way you can change the poster whenever you like. The strips and hooks are also a good option if you are renting.
