countdown to christmas

The calendar candle in my home, with tarnished silver and watched by two kids that cannot wait for the 25th to come.

a new Lily at home

We have a new, classic silver addition to our living room. Designed by Ivar Ålenius Björk for the world fair in 1939, the Lily candlestick was later produced by 400 year old Swedish brand Skultuna. I’m actually a little hesitant to put a candle in it because the metallic finish is so nice, sans fingerprints from my 2 year old.
You can find this along with other pieces from Skultuna in one of my favorite stores, Stilleben!

sunset print

Yesterday’s sunset casts shadows on Atelier CPH’s print interpretation of the last moments of sun, adding warmth and burnt orange tones to the house. I’ve never been fond of orange, but when I say orange I think the fruit or pumpkins maybe and the satu…

a tile candidate for the kitchen

An update on the kitchen changes…

This tile sample is currently resting on the kitchen counter (although in the photo it it’s sitting on the dining room cabinets) as I try to decide how I feel about it. I’m hoping to add warmth to the kitchen but my first reaction is this is too warm, too brown for the kitchen currently. Maybe something more like a greige is better?
This tile is 18″ square so it would leave only a few seams along the back wall, which is what I would like. My first reaction to tile in the kitchen is that I want something smooth without seams to keep it as clean as possible, though maybe just a few (exactly 6 along the back wall) grouted seams isn’t so bad?

The jury is still out on this one.

an instant corner

If I had only 10 minutes to furnish a corner of a living room, this is what I’d choose. Maybe that’s because I literally put it together in 10 minutes while Elin built a tower of blocks behind me and I knew I had to seize the moment before it was gone….

vignette

Some images I took over the weekend, recovering from a severe cold but still enjoyed pulling these items from the cupboard, their warm colors and textures together.
