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!

Daily inspiration, unisex


Finally, a dollhouse that suits all children, regardless of gender. Glad it’s so updated & graphically appealing – for those who one day grows up to become interested in home furnishings.

Daily inspiration, in the corner


I thought I’d share an image with you that I found the other day. It’s rather simple & straightforward since it’s a room with white furniture & black & white frames & photos. I like the idea of frames in the corner, so that they face each other. It is symmetrical, and does well in this environment. Suddenly you get a corner that is visible – and why not!

Daily inspiration, bathtub


I fell in love in this beautiful & simple bathtub designed by my favourite designer – Patricia Urquiola. It’s stylish in black shiny material with a white inside. The fine bubbly lines at the top & bottom makes a lot for the expression. It reminds me of an old metal barrel but looks the more interesting & exciting, of course.

Daily inspiration, animals


Adorable handmade toys – knitted animals in dark, light grey, white & yellow. I could easily start collect & never get enough. It’s the simple shape & uncomplicated style that makes them so appealing.

Daily inspiration, colourful poufs


Poufs are one of my favourites in regards to small furniture (well, the list is getting long) to use to put up your feet on or use as a surface to put the tray on, or the book or other. These are in a bit bigger in size & with mixed patterns!

Cherries, when they have matured & have obtained the delicious sweet taste – are completely irresistible. One of my favourite berries! And they look beautiful too.

Daily inspiration, black & white


Basic simple black & white shoes – stylish sneakers for men – that looks great. White at the front, black at the back & dark sole – great for casual use.

Pale pink


I am not a person who uses a lot of colour but appreciate colour joy in others. However, I have periods, but not very protruding colours, which creates a need for a clothing accessory or little change through textiles at home. Right now, I appreciate pale pink shades & when that feeling arises, I see that colour everywhere, of course. That pink shade I’m talking about, is really nice together with white or black. Nice also to gray – of course a lot of other colors – but that’s what I prefer right now.
The last photos of clothing is maybe more what I’m after.

Daily inspiration, small purse


I have been in search of a small purse. Maybe not looking actively but more thought of the idea. I always carry big bags – so big that you can’t really call them handbags. I prefer to have my hands free so I carry the bag diagonally across the shoulder. A habit that is hard to break. I think this one would work & looks good too.

A nice & pleasant room that is simply decorated but quite sufficient for it to be cozy, exciting & inspiring for a child. It’s always good with the extra storage that makes it easy to clean up.

Just a quick look at a favourite jacket that I like at the moment. It’s a classic style that is timeless & that works great, for my everyday wear. I see it most often used by guys for some reason but who cares, It suits me fine.

Daily inspiration, furniture


Old furniture looks like new, if they are given life in a new environment. At least, to provide the opportunity to shine, in an otherwise uncluttered environment. A fine furniture set with sofa & armchairs in a lovely blue “jeans colour” to a white floor & white walls – with much natural light as well as various fine attributes for increased comfort.

Daily inspiration, sandwich


I love sandwiches, in almost all forms. When they are a little more filling, they work great as a nice lunch. Especially if they are as healthy as possible, which means no white bread, at least.  How about grilled Caprese toast with burrata & grilled avocados – does not that sound nice?

I have stacks of both round as well as square handmade, crocheted beauties like these – all in white. I’ve been thinking of what to use them for, or rather, where. I like the idea of putting together a number of them, to a curtain, such as the image below. But still keep them all in white :)

Checkered duvet covers is a favourite in our home. Perfect in the bedroom & it doesn’t matter if it’s the guys’ room or in our bedroom. Small or in larger squares or a mix of both & preferably in base colours.

Daily inspiration, furnish with colour


This room is simply decorated but with finesse. It’s a room with a white base where the carpet with its color makes most of the work . With one single chair that that has the same colour as the space above the kitchen bench, it links  both areas together & creates atmosphere easily, through two saturated colours.

I guess that you might get tired of my many images that are similar. White rooms, a lot of Scandinavian style & the occasional splash of colour.  I try to vary but falls back to what feels natural & appealing, now & then. So here we go again.

Simple dishes


I have been sick for a couple of weeks & it has been very monotonous. It feels much better now when I finally are on the mend. It just confirms my belief that one should live for

each moment & be sincerely grateful for every day that that we get
to be healthy.

But, in regards to loss of appetite then – it inspired me to look for appealing, simple & easy to cook-dishes & finger food.

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.

Daily inspiration, golden yellow


It’s a lovely image as a whole with the house, the architecture, the sunny weather, the prepared dining table outdoors & tranquil & relaxing environment. So of course I am inspired but I actually fell for the colour on the facade, in the first hand. So soft & pleasant in the tone including the details with window shutters, the round window & greenery around. But regardless of all this, it’s the golden yellow colour that stands out.

Somewhat romantic


Romantic environments is not something I naturally get inspired by. It’s usually a lot of pink, white, floral, jewellery & other things sweet. Don’t ask me why! It doesn’t  have to be that. I find a handwritten letter rather romantic. Both because it is nowadays an unusual action but also because too many people view time as money. Generally speaking, that is!

I am not that fond of cute, girlish environments, personally. I appreciate it on behalf of others & can certainly see what it is that attracts. Maybe it’s because I’m too practical, in order to appreciate the sweetness. Although, I respect other preferences, that’s what makes the world so exciting.

Daily inspiration, protruding


I have my preferences when it comes to houses & buildings – not very much based on the architecture, but more what I like regardless of style, material, construction and so on. It could be the whole house or a part that just sticks out & interests my sense for order or aesthetics. In this case, it’s the protruding glass room, that makes me curious.

Some things never change. Or rather, I’m stuck in old habits. Despite my iPhone or laptop, I find myself making notes in my little handy notebook. It just feels good to make a note by hand, it’s quick & easy. But of course, if I would like to pass on some information, I have to take a photo before I can email or send message. I know, but anyway…

Proverb


I am fond of different quotes & statements that people have made or make. A lot of them passes by without getting my attention while others makes me stop & reflect. It’s just that, it’s all about a gut feeling, what attracts one moment & or not. I tend to think that all the images that flickers past on various sites & other says a lot about the wearer of the message – the choice they make around proverbs & quotes. I imagine that we become attached to them because they are close to our way of thinking. Or is it so, that when we face a particular situation or event, becomes a certain proverb more relevant, perhaps. A proverb or short statement usually expresses a general truth, don’t you think?
