A Happy Always!

 
 
Some table setting inspiration for New Year's Eve. All gold, brass or silver on the table alongside with grandma-inspired plates and cups! A happy mix of your flea market finds or inherited pottery go equally well as the luxurious ones from the store. Everything à la Nobel!
 
Happy New Year! May this new year bring a lot of happiness! I also want to thank you for making blogging this year so fun. Hope to see you around next year as well!
 
 
Cheers!

Beautiful workspace


 
Via Frida I paid attention to Jonas Ingerstedt's beautiful interior photos. This workspace with the chair and the framed picture caught my eyes in the amazing range of photos in his portfolio (see more here).


The home is featured in Elle Decoration Sweden issue 10.
Just have to run down and get an own copy of it!

Right before Christmas Santa, or more exactly, Kähler Design offers you a nice giveaway to make your days brighter and your life merrier. We all need that during the dark season, right? These three Urbania candle houses can now be won by one lucky winner: the pantheon, church and city house. The white glazed ceramic houses are designed by Mette Bache and Barbara Bendix Becker. They are perfect in size and so cosy!
 
If you want this whole little village of three candle houses to move into your home, all you have to do is to answer these questions:
 
 
1. What is your favourite city?
2. Where would you put the candle houses if you won?
 
Good luck! Lycka till!
 
 
The giveaway ends on Sunday 4th January 2015 11:59 p.m. EET. When the decision has been made the winner will be announced on the blog.

Christmas ornaments

 
 
The selection of Christmas tree decorations seems to have exploded the last few years. As soon as you have bought some really nice stuff, there are a lot of other equally nice stuff popping up everywhere else. Everybody seems to be doing decorations nowadays. Design brands, professionals, creative or and non-creative souls. All looking good. And if you are really following some kind of threads or styles in your decoration and do not throw everyhting in there in a glorious mess, you would at least need seven different trees to have place for everything. Phew! I have some boxes in my cupboard that do not go with this or that style and on top of that I am thinking of getting some more still. But more is more for once! Bring it on the bling-bling Christmas! Here you have some of my favourite selections from this year's supply. Did I forget anything?

Last Christmas



Today is the day to take in my spruce. My brother-in-law has been kind to fetch one for me this year and I am eager to see what it looks like and decorate it. It is only a smaller one as I do not think there is so much space for any in full-size right now. Anyhow, the Christmas spirit is there and if only all gifts would be ready soon I am looking forward to just potter about in my home, bake and maybe try some Xmas DIYs this last week before the holidays. These pictures are from last year and my favourite decorations in the Christmas tree. I am sure they will find their place this year, too.
 
Psst. There is a really nice Danish design giveaway coming up soon on the blog. Stay tuned and do not miss it!

Second Advent

 
 
It is a real challenge to photograph in the evening dark, but I hope you anyway can see my new work of art, made by Ditte Gjøde?  I like the colours in it! So me! I found a light wooden frame that I thought matched the nuances in the best way.
 
Look through Ditte's whole beautiful gallery here. I thinks the Glimpse family is just awesome and I had a real hard time choosing. This one ended up as my favourite (it is number #5), but take a look also at the other ones that I selected to a previous collage here.
 
The rest of the evening I will spend in the TV-sofa (so worth it after all unneccessary Christmas stress..!) with cappuccino looking through the last two episodes of Revenge. Hope all is well! Happy new week!

December wishes

 
  
Wondering here what to wish for Christmas...
What is on your wish list?

I made collage with beautiful things that have caught my eyes lately. All my favourites, but especially the poster.

The strange thing by making collages is that you want the things even more than before making the collage...
