Daily inspiration, socks in high heels


Socks in heels – are not a usual sight. I think this image is very inspiring but I am not sure that this style would suit everyone. But as a kit with socks, shoes, bags & wool coats – and the lovely bright colours, it’s all the same, very energising.

Daily inspiration, Howard & sons


This armchair is one of my favourites. I might have posted similar model earlier but it’s a timeless style that fits everywhere. It is a Howard sofa & the name of Howard & Sons is probably one of the best known in upholstered furniture. I have a sofa in white & an armchair in tobacco brown. I am thinking of new sofa covers but can’t make up my mind in which colour or if I should go for a pattern. I like the stripes!

Daily inspiration, rattan chairs


Rattan chairs are nice in general, but these looks great, don’t they? Wide & generous in the shape, and bright in the material as well. A little more worked than usual with a fine decorated base & nice bud legs.

Daily inspiration, mushrooms


A dab of mashed potatoes with mushroom sauce - a properly cooked stowage is fantastic & belongs to dishes that you can never be tired of. I associate mushrooms with autumn as it was when we were out & in the woods & picked these, which was a must when I was a child. The smell of the forest can still found in the taste.

Carpets


I am a great lover of carpets. Carpets have an important function in the home. Not only as a floor heater, but also to soften the impression, to bring in colour, pattern & home feeling. Rugs helps to reduce the noise level too. A room does not feel entirely finished or inhabited, until the carpet comes into place. Moreover, it keeps the room together – you get a base to start from. Ideal for children to play on or pets to lie on. Depending on the carpet’s appearance, it can become a decorative piece in the home. Equally useful on the wall such as the sofa. Or outside on the terrace. Coordinate or choose colours or pattern. Rugs, a must for the home.

Daily inspiration, window trellis


An exciting kitchen with window trellis in white & very homely feeling. It’s nice when you see through to the kitchen & the combination of rattan & plaid sofa upholstery does it more personal. Are you ready for dinner?

Daily inspiration, out in the open


I have a longing to come out in the open, out into the wide landscape, forests, mountains, hills – without a definite goal. Just to breathe fresh air, think freely & to balance body & soul – simply to catch up with myself. I think the image is quite descriptive.

Daily inspiration, collarless


I like this collarless leather jacket in simple design. Black & slightly tapered in the shape. Easy to wear & would look great with a scarf wrapped around the neck.

Daily inspiration, dark wood & orange


It is fine with dark wood furniture in a white environment, especially when you add to a warm orange colour.

Daily inspiration, nicely composed


I find this solution is nicely composed. Black together with wood is mostly appealing in an otherwise white environment. The shapes of those classic furniture comes into its own. Pale pink details relaxes the impression too.

Daily inspiration, beige


Cold evenings creates the need for a bit warmer outfit. A thicker sweater, wool coat & scarf is nice to combine with white pants & some sort of sneakers – in my opinion. fashion-gone-rouge.tumblr.com.fashion-gone-rouge.tumblr.com Take care / Marie

Daily inspiration, brass & crystal


An exciting (maybe romantic is more suitable) close-up of an old brass mirror & matching chandelier. It’s nice when you are able to see the frames in the mirror image of similar material – nicely arranged. It’s nice to see the dear old things I once was very fond of, in younger age. Seems as I am still too :)

Daily inspiration, travel kit


It may not be absolutely necessary with an arsenal of bags when you are out & traveling. Not too handy to keep track of all the parts, of course. But it sure is nice, though.

It’s almost too nice solution for a bathroom – in the way the images has been arranged so that they follow an oblique line & are of various sizes which creates an exciting structure.

Daily inspiration, colour accent


A relatively neutral room that becomes exciting with an unexpected colour on the door. It is a fun detail that the red colour of the framed picture, reappears at edge of the door as well.

Daily inspiration, grey details


I like the simplicity in this room but it was mainly the curtains that caught my eye. It is neat with dual curtains, especially when the grey colour recurs on the bedspread.

Transparency, through a simple sweeping motion, that can create a poetic sense – with a sheer flowing thin fabric – beautiful & a little romantic.

Clever solution – at least if you want to avoid letting cords lying on the floor & gather dust – why not create a city skyline!

I like globes, & I’m always happy when I turn on the light in the one we have standing on a low cabinet in the workroom. It’s globetrotter in me that reacts – the desire to travel & experience!

Daily inspiration, turquoise


It’s a nice kitchen corner, this corner. But it was more the lamps with the adorable turquoise colour, that caught my eyes, actually. It’s always surprising what little is needed sometimes, to create a fresh new impression.

Daily inspiration, white rooms


It’s always appealing with white rooms, a white base that enhances everything else that has another colour. It’s very Scandinavian to furnish & decorate in this manner. It’s important to utilise any natural light & use as much white as possible to enhance the brightness, because it is dark most of the year.

Black & white, it’s always nice, looks good and is refreshing. And when you add a third colour – like here with some red accents – and stripes & dots, then it becomes really appealing.

First of August, first post


Today is first of August & this is my first post ever on this totally new blog. I guess I will blog about home decoration, mainly because it’s been my profession and interest for many years. But there will certainly be some fashion, travels, food, etc. Fresh as I am at blogging, the first post is a fruit.
