Tomorrows

I’m taking a break for a few weeks, together with my dear family. Time off, no pressure & far from any social media or any other possible obligations. Just family & friends time. Until we meet again, may the sun shine on you with warmth and love.

Daily inspiration, black Nike

I’m not overly fond of gym shoes or training shies since I don;t use that kind of stuff – yet, because it’s never too late. But you don’t have to go to the gym to wear stylish things like these. They fit to anything – gorgeous right!

Daily inspiration, tower house

A bit like in a fairy tale, with a tower house where the princess is sitting and waiting for her prince. Or partner, as we say nowadays. A nice way to build in height and with a small limited space available.

Daily inspiration, public space

Sounds strange to say public space about restaurants but that’s what they are. This is simple furnishings, almost spartan and have by simple means gained a strong expression – through patterns mix and actually by keeping other parts of the environment in white.

Daily inspiration, genderless

A genderless style, neither this or that, really. But I am very fond of this monochrome & uniformed expression. Very timeless also with toned down elegance.

Daily inspiration, refreshing environment

It’s refreshing with environments that isn’t cluttered with lots of architectural details & overload of material. It’s nice when you allow a space to speak for itself through architecture and interior design, or rather lack of as there’s nothing   that interferes vertically.
Light, space, natural light and colour pop.

Daily inspiration, outdoors

Lovely weather makes everything seem to be so smooth. I’ve spent my day off on the terrace with the sun shining & it was still in the air. Much like time just stopped so all people could take a moment & just enjoy. Thought this image  could mirror the feeling somewhat.

Daily inspiration, kitchen

A well planned space with room for different activities without getting too crowded or messy. Modern but somewhat rustic with visible brick wall and large windows with plenty of natural light. The white floor contributes to the airy feel too.

Daily inspiration, furniture

It is always exciting with designed furniture, regardless of price or designers. It is ultimately about what you are attracted by and how a piece of furniture makes you feel.

Daily inspiration, time

I saw this comment on Banksy’s twitter account – with the comment that this year is flying by. A few more days have already passed since I saw these lines … Don’t forget to live, to breath & to be present. What’s the purpose otherwise.

daily inspiration, belts

These belts were a big thing once, when I was still in high school. Just as flight overalls who’s back again, with this typical model of belt around the waist. You twisted it through the ring once and then left the end to hang loosely and casually at the front. The vast majority were plain coloured with metal buckle, at that time. These are Italian and hyper-modern in masculine style.

Baking mood

Now I’m not a baking (mom) even though I might wish I had the talent. But like most, I love freshly baked, newly baked, the smell, the heat and all that implies. I grew up with freshly baked cinnamon buns and a glass of milk as a snack. Nowadays, I see it more as a soothing activity with the preparations and the actual baking process itself.Also, I think the scent that spreads through the house, makes all in the household very friendly.

I know, I’m always posting something sweet, at leat mostly deserts. This time, this delicious ricotta maple tart with roast pears. A small piece of this cake with a small dollop of whipped cream and a cup of black coffee, life feels pretty wonderful.

Daily inspiration, Swedish shop

 This is an image from the Swedish homeware store, BUTIKEN. It is nicely arranged with space for goods to be seen, tested and exposed. Nice environment with a homely feel – like coming home to someone you know. Carefully selected products with a feeling for form and aesthetics.

Daily inspiration, open solution

This apartment reminds me about one of my earliest places when I was studying many years ago. A large room with a little smaller bedroom, a kitchenette and a tiny hallway. I had to arrange the furniture very well thought out so as not to create a feeling of over-furnished apartment. Those were the times :)

Daily inspiration, gastropub

A very inviting & rustic environment, perfect for a gastropub. Isn’t it a great idea with a pub that specialises in serving high-quality food. And with an interior with an atmosphere that makes it cosy, making you feel as if you could stay there for ever. Lose track of time.

Modern love

Architecture is not my forte. I’m not very passionate about construction and the technological elements. I see it more based on what I like aesthetically, what stands out, what arouses my interest, what material or actual location of the building, quite simply. Contrasts are always interesting and the idea behind the decision, the complete solution.

Daily inspiration, rocking chair

A piece of furniture that is almost gone out of style – is precisely the rocking chair. An all too common furniture in the homes in the seventies. Since then it has almost completely disappeared with a few attempts to return. This beauty is an updated modern version in gorgeous design, which should absolutely be able to survive.

Daily inspiration, tranquil place

I posted the first image a while ago & was inspired by the bedroom solution, especially the bed made of loading pallets. The rest of the home is equally inspiring with lots of character & great solutions. Monochrome colour scheme makes the place very tranquil & relaxing.  tagtantum.tumblr.com

Daily inspiration, black belt

There is something going on in terms of belts. People wear them whether it is needed or not. And in all shapes too. Maybe it’s in my neighborhood or possibly a temporary illusion. But it has made me begin to look around and observe … just in case!

Daily inspiration, glossy

White, glossy, shiny, clean, fresh kitchen. Maybe someone would say soulless or lifeless.

I like the solution with the kitchen counter and the extended seat. Although it is perhaps a little crowded space around and too close to the outdoor unit. Either way it’s a really nice interior that can be brought to life with a little more homely feel & love.

Daily inspiration, furniture design

An interesting & inspiring collection of designed items that creates cravings. The chairs with high back in yellow and the wonderful coffee tables connected in shape. The stylish bookcase on the wall, with drawers for storage is perfect in size. The big rug that works well in colours. Nice!

Daily inspiration, windows

There’s a lot in everyday life that’s beautiful, interesting and thought-provoking when we take the time to discover it. Maybe not always to discover, but to see, for it’s there for us to experience.

Beautifully designed technology requires good neighbors, as company. In all cases, at least as minimalist in appearance – to look good together. (maybe not always, but let’s say in this case).

Daily inspiration, cafes

Cafes in this city exist in large numbers. It appears as if new ones emerge constantly. And I mean constantly. And why not, it’s a big part of the culture & the best meeting places with friends. There’s always some one who have a favorite they offer tips about. And it’s always as great, just as they said.

Daily inspiration, extension

It is exciting with buildings, especially when building on to the existing house body. Concrete and glass are perfect materials, of course, and this glass extension makes it very exciting with its location. As a small box that has been inserted between the buildings and adapted exactly.

Nice black and white styling, matched in pattern, colour and design.
Great composition in order to complement each other – which they do in an excellent way. The patterns dominate but still, the brown chair & the wooden box stands out just the right amount.

Daily inspiration, long table(s)

Whenever we have moved & wherever we have moved in, I’ve always tried to fit a long table, or rather two tables, to make one long that runs through the room, that can be used for various functions. You can have someone working at one end while others in the family can do other stuff without having to move things around.

Daily inspiration, functionalist house

I can’t find the best translation for funkis villa but I believe that functionalist house is the closest. Funkis is a style direction mainly in architecture, which claims that the purpose, function, must determine the shape.

Well, let’s not get caught up in the word-concept, although the reason for that is that I think this interior, goes a bit in that particular style. Anyway, a very attractive home decor in black & white with inspiring solutions & great combo of floor choice.

Yes, that’s what i would call this. Great colour scheme & appealing styling. From the wooden floor, to the rug, armchairs & the coffee table. Goes well together with the dark grey sofa & the cushions. Very nice!

Daily inspiration, still life

I’m very fond of decorative still life, although I prefer simple & uncomplicated compositions. That are easy to absorb. My whole beginning in advertising & decoration was about still life & decorative solutions. Often in shop windows &  entrances to stores. It had to be worked but easy to understand & inspire instantly. That have stayed with me since then & still inspires when done in the right way.

Daily inspiration, chilli

I do not mind spicy foods, or spices at all. But it is definitely not nice when it’s so strong that it burns in the mouth. Or fumes from the ears. Something I will avoid in the future, for real. Chilli pepper is actually a fruit although it’s used as vegetable – and it’s beautiful to look at – which I will do in the future :)

Daily inspiration, vegetarian skewers

Now, it is not really BBQ season on this side of the world, even if the weather allows it all year round. And it’s rarely any meat on the grill nowadays in this place. Vegetarian skewers taste just as good with a combination of different vegetables and some fruit to get the sweet & salty taste.

A fantastic setting in English country style with furniture of patterned mix that works well together and creates the charm that is easy to fall for. A year-round cottage with wonderful windows and fantastic natural light. And even lighter impression with white wooden walls.

Daily inspiration, rare sight

A rather rare sight, this armchair by Alexander Girard. I really enjoy this design & the simplistic look – wide seat, low back, high sides & elegant steel-base. The fabric cover in small squares with soft neutral colour is appealing & so is also the grey strip at the front too.

Daily inspiration, jeans blue

A big comfy couch is always a nice & inviting in the living room. Lots of space for family & friends. It’s easy to personalise or if you prefer, customise to the occasions and activities. In this case, I would not mind to just crawl up in the sofa, pull up all cushions behind me & draw a blanket around – for a movie night.

Daily inspiration, cobblestone

You might wonder about today’s inspirational contribution. It’s just a cobblestone street, right? Oh no! It is pure handicrafts with long history. Something I respect after having had craftsmen who recently finished a huge job, with lime stones around the pool. I look at pavements slightly different now.

Maybe it’s not so much the image in it self that drew my attention – despite the stacks of book which I really like. No, it was the wall colour. An undetermined shade of green & blue, which changes to light turquoise depending on how the light falls.
