Daily inspiration, shoes


Shoes are something that turns up on the blog rather frequent – not overly recurrent but anyway. It’s early spring here in Sydney & time to put on a lighter type of footwear – such as these espadrilles – my favourites, for the time being.

Daily inspiration, stair solution


And here we go again, white & very nice environment. I like the painted wooden wall, floor & staircase – all in white. But the more, the custom made bookshelf with open shelves & closed bottom. Made to blend in with the stairs, that may not lead anywhere but can devour more stuff.

Daily inspiration, brick house


Again, a charming house with lots of character. Ivy that winds along the facade and down the stairs, blue shutters, brick, a big tree & lots of  greenery – very appealing, of course.

Daily inspiration, dotted wallpaper


A different & fun solution with dotted self adhesive vinyl wallpaper, to grey stained wood floor, light grey sofa & striped fabrics that contrast with the dots – and a floor lamp in copper.

Daily inspiration, clay pots


Today I like these black, or rather, more dark grey, clay pots with small green plants that make the entire set irresistible.

Daily inspiration, red color


Thought I’d share a bit about the red color – close to orange – that has different meanings depending on country & history. It’s one if the colors that I really like although it has to be the right red color. Either deep red Christmas color or bright red without the slightest tinge of orange, yellow, or the like. Talk about being sensitive :)

I’m a beige person but from time to time, I find myself liking a certain color – as a complement. It’s blue right now. Dark blue preferably! Did you know this about the blue color?

Daily inspiration, grey facade


I’m rather fascinated by house facades right now – no special reasons, really. I found this one in grey very inspiring & appealing. Transverse planks & all in the same shade of grey with very simple details – so beautiful!

Something worn


It’s nice when you mix old with new or combines a worn thing together with shiny new. It becomes personalised & not overwhelmingly ambitious – that’s sometimes rather liberating. Environments in different shades of white furnished with worn furniture where the wood shows through can never go out of style. The style is loved by many & is found in many countries, more or less consistent.

I like when the decor isn’t straight through furnished in worn white. It becomes a bit too much for my taste. However, it’s very appealing, with small groups of furniture or still life that creates exciting & unexpected solutions.

Sweet small baskets with black numbers, for small storage. Cute & simple yet so easy to use. And not the usual colourful design that is common otherwise.

Warm camembert tart with pomegranate syrup fig & pistachio – most likely a tasty & pleasant experience but, but what about the finishing touch – you eat as much with your eyes, right? A beautiful dessert you might say.

Daily inspiration, textiles


A nice image of styled bed linen, without too much knickknacks around. I like the combination of relatively minimalistic colour scheme & slightly bohemian feel. And without a bed that takes up the space, the textiles comes more into focus.

Black loafers with tassel – a bit more rough in the model than the usual plain with low heels, which I otherwise prefer. Nice anyway!

Daily inspiration, restaurant


I guess you have already seen this image that has been circulating around for a while on various sites & blogs. I really like the stylish mix of furniture, colours & materials. Light blue together with cream, rough wooden floor & white round lampshades as a roof over above. Upholstered furniture provides a soft feel & the whole impression reminds of  an old movie, but in the modern setting.

Fresh eye catcher


Fresh cut flowers are a delight to the eye & for general well-being. It is a wonderful experience to visit markets around Sydney & take home a bunch of fresh flowers. It looks wonderful, smells the same & gives life to the home. I’m not particularly fond of sumptuous arrangements, although they have their place, in the right environment. However simple, bursting with some green branches – is the perfect solution for me. It’s a moderate eye catcher & brightens our life at home :)

This is a stamped brass keychain, as you can see – I just thought it looked nice & would be perfect because it would be so easy to find in my big bags. I like the text, which of course fits well with where I love to spend my time.

Colours & patterns


I, who is not the biggest fan of bold colours & patterns is not the best one to promote this but it’s not about using, the but more about enjoying – at a distance. Things can be beautiful without having to have the style or taste, of course. I admire those who can combine the pattern on pattern & add one colour or multiple colours – to make it look beautiful & inviting. It requires a certain sense & talent indeed – as well as passion!

Daily inspiration, jeans jacket


Spring time & on the look for a jeans jacket. The dark coloured one that I have been using from time to time during winter needs to be replaced to a lighter version. It’s actually easier said than done. The colouring must be right so that it is useful to white jeans & the like. Something along the lines of this image.

Hallway


The hall, I think, is one of the most important areas of a home. This is where you are welcomed in after a long day, where you hang your outerwear, a place for car keys, phone & other everyday things has its place. It’s also the place where you get an immediate sense of the home atmosphere.

We have a very small space, hardly even worth calling it a hallway. It’s more a corridor that leads into the house. More like a transport way, so to speak. We managed to find place for a shoerack & a dresser with baskets. And a mirror! I’m dreaming of a big spacious hallway!

Lovely colours to use in a children’s room – not driven by whether it is boy or girl – I like that! You know I am fond of basic colours & extra plus when it is graphically appealing too. All in the child’s height & most part within reach – very nice. A great playful decor!

Daily inspiration, staircase


There are sometimes some surfaces, that I don’t always notice because, mainly because I’m usually in a hurry. But when I slow down & take the time to see things around me, it’s usually very inspiring. Things such as this so called transport route which is a beautiful stairwell. Very beautiful stairwell, that is!

Ceiling lights


We still haven’t got ceiling lights installed since we moved into the house. Some things take time. Lighting is an essential part of the function & mood in a home. With the daylight that moves during the day, the lighting is something that affects unconsciously, if it is not right. General lighting, functional lighting as well as mood lighting. It’s getting brighter now with the spring that has just started but the problem persists in the evenings – so we will simply have to get started, right?
In addition, there are very very nice designed lamps on the market. Yes, it will take some time to agree with everyone involved!

Details


I have made a selection of different images with details that stands out, without shouting too much. Details that are there to discover, either for its richness in terms of expression or for its simplicity. I find most of these images inspiring but there’s only few that I would choose based on my preferences & liking. Mostly because I’m not a major user of much jewellery, lace or ruffles, even though it is neat to see on others.
