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

My instagram latley – Deco desires

deco11 (1 of 1)

Anyone who knows me well knows that I absolutely love interior deco. Right now I'm drawn to leather, rattan, wood, the color white and plants. Very nature close colors and harmonic. If you think about it really doesn't have to be that expensive to reach this type of home, most high street decor brands have products that will work well if you want to achieve this styling. Just check my favorites below and let's be honest a green plant doesn't cost a fortune either! Anyone who has more suggestions?

Happy Monday!

deco desires

decodesiresWhen the season is getting darker and winter is getting closer (Yes we can not deny it any longer) I always have the urge to decorate/re-decorate at home. I guess it has to do with the fact that we tend to spend more time at home during the winter-season?

Scandinavian as I am, I'm a sucker for interior deco, an interest I share with my sister that we can discuss for hours. As much as I love the minmal style, I don't want my home to look to stiff, my wish is that when people enter they see the person who lives there through the deco. The most boring type of deco according to me is when a home feels like a museum with no soul. Then on the other hand, I can not stand a home filled with clutter, it's a fine line I guess.

I love the combo of, white/beige, green plants, brown lether and kilim fabrics as seen on the picture above. I get the minimal feeling with a bohemin touch, just my taste!

Wouldn't mind the pieces above to get a feeling of a fresh new home.

hay @ cos

haycos1haycos

The other week when I was strolling on Kensington high street here in London I passed COS and saw from outside that they were selling some deco pieces from Hay. I entered to check it out, and realized that the entire lower ground floor was no longer filled with clothes but with funiture and decoration from Hay. They decorated it really nice so you had a feeling you were passing different rooms, instead  of a shop. Hay is truly a nice brand, I mean just take a look at the pictures  above, don't you just want to move in?

I love the light colors in grey and pink with the green plant in the background in the first picture and the three coffee tables in a row in the second one.

I say yes please!

pillow palm

Say hello to my gorgeous pillow case from HM home, I must say they do have some nice stylish affordable pieces. I am gonna match it with my pink velvet pillow (see it in THIS post) and fill my home with green plants, cant wait to go to the flower market on Sunday! Green and dusty pink is by the way such a great combo when it comes to interior deco, can't get enough of that color combination.

They seem to have sold out on this model online, but check out all their other pillowcases HERE.

pink velvet cushion

pinkvelvet

A nice cushion can make such a difference, this one is a home-made one since I found it hard to find the perfect pink velvet cushion that I was aiming for. Now all I have to do is to find the perfect "leaf" print to make an other one. Luckily I live just close by a road full of shops that sells fabrics, its like a treasure hunt to go there.  I love contrast and thats why I want the second one to be totally  different, I will snap a photo as soon as I have found the perfect second cushion. To be continued...

a bigger splash

pool2pool

A few weeks ago I bought this print from Tate modern, and yesterday I found the perfect frame to it. It's on the wall now and I can't stop staring at it, the colors are so beautiful together and it makes me happy! Underneath you can read some more about my art piece.

'A Bigger Splash' was painted between April and June 1967 when Hockney was teaching at the University of California at Berkeley. It is one of a group of swimming pool paintings that Hockney created. He was fascinated by the subject as unlike in Britain, swimming pools were not considered a luxury in California as they could be used all year round.

'The bright bold colours of 'A Bigger Splash' and the fast drying acrylic paint emphasise the strong and sunny California light. The position of the diving board gives perspective and cuts across the horizon. There is no human presence in this painting, but the splash implies the presence of a diver.

Any of you who follow me on my Instagram might have seen the paperclips I got from Tom Dixon, well I just couldn't resist this book mark from the brand either. I might have caught the Tom dixon-fever? It looks so nice just laying on the side table, doesn't it?

made by me and dad

IMG_8107Last time I visited my parents, I came up with this idea of a kind of home made art piece to put in our book shelf. Luckily I have a very handy father who can full fill my ideas, so we went to the forest to find the perfect branch. I must say that I am very happy with the final result and It looks pretty good next to the books, I always love brining pieces of nature in to the home. Thanks Daddy!
