A gallery corner

New inspiration from IKEA’s Livet Hemma, a gallery wall, or rather corner, with a variety of different sized artwork, frame, transparent shelving and a glass keepsake box. A stylish and artistic corner created by Linnéa Salmén using black, white and nu…

The home of interior stylist Susanna Vento

Susanna was one of the first bloggers I ever followed, years ago when I first began blogging myself. Her daughter and my son are just months apart in age so I remember seeing her baby while holding my own baby in my arms and feeling connected by this new experience with motherhood. Since then I’ve continued to follow her work, her books, and her incredible sense of style and her ability to make everything look so good. She also throws the best birthday parties for her girls, so is there anything she can’t do well?

Pella tipped me off to this by posting the Livet Hemma feature of Susanna’s home last night on Facebook as I was dozing off. Funnily enough I ended up dreaming that Elin and I were at her house for a birthday party! Everyone was speaking Finnish except for me but I didn’t really care, I was just happy to be hanging with her cute family at a party. And that’s how my Monday morning began!
The feature was a partnership with IKEA so the tour is heavy with IKEA product but you can still see Susann’s touch on everything and has created a unique example of how to personalize furniture easily accessible to all.

A clever and easy DIY from Livet Hemma using some wooden chairs, leather and a bit of glue.

natural Summer | a nomination


I’m sure this never happens to you but sometimes I draft a post and then walk away or get distracted by my toddler who is climbing on my lap, or the table or other danger-to-toddler objects and then forget (am not allowed) to finish.
I intended to share this like a week ago but oh, you know, I got distracted.
Still, I love it. Fresh outdoor styling that makes me wish for my own outdoor room like this, styled by the ever stylish Josefin Hååg for Livet Hemma.

Also, and entirely unrelated I just found out that I was nominated for a 2015 Bloglovin Award. Honestly I’m quite taken aback with this because I know I haven’t been able to take care of my blog very well since I had Elin. 18 months later and I still find it hard to carve out a moment, alone, to look for inspiration that is quality enough for you all to look at. I try to only post things I truly love and even when I’m working in a sponsored situation it’s still a property for me to retain some honesty and taste with who/what I work with. If I had more time I’d love to craft something more flawless, more frequent for you all to read but in spite of my shortcomings with the blog I am terribly grateful to be nominated.
If you’d like to take a look at the list (I’m in excellent company btw) and to vote, go here.

Thank you to everyone who reads my quick captions and visual collection of inspiring and work. I sincerely appreciate it.

Påskris & Easter

We don’t do many festive activities for Easter but this year I was thinking of incorporating a Swedish tradition of decorating branches with eggs, feathers and even witches. I’m not going to get into all the deeper meanings of these, if you’d like to k…

mood

Usually I’m drawn to simpler scenes, open spaces and minimal accessories when it comes to interiors but this recent work by Pella Hedeby for Livet Hemma (Ikea’s blog) is really attractive to me. I think she did a great job elevating Ikea pieces into so…
