Daily inspiration, eye liner

Cosmetic applied line around the eyes sounds easy but if you’ve tried yourself, it’s somewhat of an art to manage. I like when it’s done in a thin line that continues out & gets thicker towards the end. In a single line, without any trembling on the hand – and with the right eye liner. Ie, high quality, fine thin brush & liquid instead of pen. Just enough makeup for my part, to feel “dressed”!

Daily inspiration, baked berries

Baked berries with amaretto, or without if you prefer that, but it’s the berries that makes it = raspberries, blueberries, figs & cloudberries with some plain yogurt on the side plus a dash of milk – try it! (or the easy version with toasted muesli).

Daily inspiration, time off

A lot of work & little time for life – makes you start dreaming of time off with as little activity as possible – just relax & take it easy. In an environment free of noise & short distance between the hotel & the pool / ocean.

Daily inspiration, touch of elegance

A casual style with a touch of elegance – white tight t-shirt with pants that are loose & casual yet chic in expression. Works well with pointy shoes or the less formal espadrilles.

Daily inspiration, walk-in

Walk-in closet, a bit hidden with the good natural light & space to organise in height, with the stuff visible – with the room at the front. Great with simple solutions that also looks good.

A rather small bathroom with a sloping roof & most of it in white. The floor, bathtub & far wall has a soft sandstone colour – charming bathroom without frills.

Daily inspiration, wanderlust

Wanderlust – it just itches in the body of desire to get away somewhere – away from all the everyday demands. Just be yourself without any requirement or musts. A dream right now, to travel anywhere, no matter where – simply get some free time to stroll & enjoy the present.

Daily inspiration, town house

There are many beautiful houses & facades that pops up on my screen when I scroll through real estate, blogs, websites etc. It is something with facades that makes me interested – as this beautiful building, period town house with charm, character & interesting details.

Daily inspiration, under the stairs

Sometimes you have to rearrange the furniture from a given layout & what works best for the totality of a room. As under the stairs in this case.Works fine, since it’s simple & otherwise clean & tidy, without much interference.

Daily inspiration, two legs

It was the china that struck me most of all, the simplistic design. But the table with two legs that’s using the wall as support – isn’t bad at all, either!

Daily inspiration, hair cut

I’m not so much for posting pictures with much makeup or models. I like the free taste, in terms of people, which is based on how someone is rather than how someone looks. A little oldfashioned I know. In this case, it’s the hairstyle that’s important. I cut my hair somewhat similar but my hair was too curly for it to work.

Green plants

Plants seem to be fashionable in the world of interior design. Plants are of course always present but now more than usual, it seems like. It is especially climbing plants that I see a lot of – what kind, varies seasonally & is influenced by what’s fashionable – as with most things. It’s nice when you group them together or jointly with something else.

Automobile = a road vehicle, typically with four wheels, powered by an internal combustion engine or electric motor & able to carry a small number of people. What may differ from this simple description, in addition to technical details,
is of course the design.

Daily inspiration, stripes

I like shirts that are striped regardless if narrow or wide stripes. Preferably in blue or as my latest, which is in black & white. Different shades of blue makes a big difference indeed. Although few would discover that I have changed blouse from one day to another. Classic & stylish!

It’s sometimes nice to have beautiful things that are there, tempting with its simplicity but don’t necessarily have to scream out their existence. Such as this yellow shelf, which with its yellow colour enhances the mirror above.

We have similar fireplaces in our house & despite some pattern & material from previous century, I find them charming with lots of character. Not everyone agrees, but my youngest furnished his room recently &
kept the fireplace free so it’s more visible, with his desk in front, similar to this image!

I often marvel over the simple & ordinary. Things that’s around us daily, which we occasionally stops seeing, or rather, take for granted. Almost too beautiful to be eaten, right?

Daily inspiration, homemade

Books & corners are a good combination, don’t know why that’s so appealing but I guess it’s the bookworm in me who’s drawn to places with lots of books & gladly a corner where I can curl up. I like this simple assembly of white wood with different sizes on the shelves & an old odd window in green.

Daily inspiration, coffee cup & saucer

The white coffee set with blue flowers standing in our glass cabinet has been around since ancient times. It’s not that we’ve used it that often, but it’s now part of our household. (cappuccino cups & espresso glass took over). These cups are well suited for high tea with the wide round shape – coffee cups & saucers that can’t keep the coffee hot for very long but you get the feeling of old coffee parties. Good old times :)

Daily inspiration, apartments

Architecture does not have to be complicated. The simple can sometimes be the ultimate & catch your gaze just because it speaks a clear language. I find this building positive & inviting. The balconies are as boxed private rooms on the outside of the facade.
