Saved from Insta lately

One of my favorite features on Instagram is the Save folder. Instagram is for me such a source of inspiration and to be able to save the picture you come across into your own kind of mood board is so great.

Something from my mama

In this day and age where we constantly are caught up in consumerism, it's nice to fill your home with objects that have a deeper meaning than just being pretty.

Ever since I remember my mum had the bowl with the two stone eggs in her living room that I wasn't allowed to play with as a kid but was always very fascinated by the look of them. I still think they are so beautiful and was very happy when my mum decided to gift them to me. Now they are sitting on my coffee table reminding me of my mum and how something so simple as an egg shape can be so beautiful.

Thank you Mum!

Old stuff that last and sparks joy!

porter

I'm not gonna lie, it feels very bittersweet to be back home in London. Bitter because I already miss my family in Sweden and loved just hanging out with my mum, dad, my sister, brother in law and my two nieces. Home feels really empty especially when the boyfriend is away too. Sweet because it's soon new year and I have a feeling that 2018 is gonna be a very exciting year.

From one thing to another. I have thought a lot about consumerism lately and how we overconsume (yes me too, I'm guilty, but I'm trying to get better). I realized that the pieces I love the most in my home are actually the pieces that give me a certain feeling, say for example this leather pouf. I bought second hand for 20 pounds when I was a poor student and lived in my apartment in Gothenburg, I wanted one for years and was so happy when I found this in such good condition and for a pretty good price. I sometimes wonder who has owned it before and where he or she got it, and I love that this pouf has traveled and have had many homes. It has a history so to say, like in the old days when things were rarely bought new and instead inherited until it broke.

What I want to say with this is that my leather pouf really sparks joy as organizing guru Marie Condo would say! My aim is definitely to have fewer things and only keep the pieces I truly love. Quality not quantity. Goals for 2018.

Now last day of work for 2017! Until then Happy New Years!

XOXO

We will always have Paris – About my new found love for my old city

Parisian buildings and architecture shot in Marais this summer

Last week I was back in what most people refer to the City of Love, Paris. I lived there two years ago and even though I have been back a few times since moving, it has always been for the work and only for the day. This meant seeing Paris through the taxi in between the station and the showroom. This time was different as I stayed for two days and spent the night in Paris, still for work but more time for pleasure this time.

When walking from Garde de Nord ( Yes luckily Londoners can take the train to Paris) to Marais it stroke me how beautiful the city is, I had forgotten about the Parisians buildings and how charming the city is. Funny how sometimes you need a bit of distance in able to see things clearly again.

Picture of the interior decoration department in the french store Merci in Paris. Love the minimalistic and nature colored deco combined with the green plant wall outside.

My visit didn't get any worse when I meet up with friends for dinner and breakfast and that I managed to squeeze in a visit to one of my favorite shop Merci, see picture above. I would really recommend this store if you are into design, my favorite department is the interior design floor. Oh, la la as you would say in France. If you interested in visiting the store but can't go to Paris check out their online store HERE

I must also fill in that it was nice by Thursday night to come home to London and my life here, home is where your heart is. But I will always have Paris...

Get organized – How to sort out your shoes once and for all

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt might be spring and the whole idea of spring cleaning, or just simply me being fed up with having my shoes all mixed up and hard to get a good overview of, that made me once and for all organize my shoes. Whatever reason it might have been I must say I am pretty happy with my current shoe situation, and it really does inspire me more to pick different shoes in the morning since it's no so easy!  It's not rocket science how I did this, so I will let you scroll down to see for yourself.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI chose to write the brand on the photo to make it even easier 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA You can even use it as side table in your bedroom ( Gotta love a multi-purpose )

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAll you need is this little guy and a marker pen

Easy peasy lemon squeezy, right?! Note to myself: Never throw away an empty shoe box ever again!
