Comfortable beds

Sometimes I have a strong desire to just sleep until I can’t sleep longer. You know, to get to sleep until you wake up – without any alarm clock or noise. I feel at times steered by what I need to do instead of what I would like to do. Then, the bedroom is a dream, with large comfortable bed, wonderful linens & big fluffy pillows.

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.

Daily inspiration, cottage style

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, Scandinavian furniture

Styling in a nice setting with typical Scandinavian furniture design – light bright, airy, wood mixed with other natural material & on the first image with plants. Furnitures that works in any environment depending on what you want to achieve.

Daily inspiration, beach

We are soon heading home for a three-week vacation – which is absolutely wonderful. However, I do not think there is any time for beach visits with the intense schedule we have. It will be focus on family & friends during the short time while we are there. But I can still dream, right?

Daily inspiration, generous

One of my favourite garments – jumper with turtleneck, this one with generous front. These colours are also nice for the autumn & winter weather.

Daily inspiration, on the water

A house on two levels with cliffs & seas around, plus a nice little detail as the jetty that can be pulled in when you don’t want to have visitors.

Daily inspiration, black & white

Something white, something black, something white again & a bit black and white. Well, then it becomes that nice & yet so simple.

Daily inspiration, dining

It is nice having dinner, food, good company & all that implies. Gladly a long table with lots of seating & not too “messy” with decorations – just something simple where people gather to socialise.

Daily inspiration, Michael Kors

Have you noticed is I’m pretty weak to flat shoes with low heels & preferably with some kind of simple lacing – if not, here is a nice example of a stylish shoe. Michael Kors from last year’s collection.

Daily inspiration, tomorrow

It is really important, even if it’s hard, to live in the present. Not to dream about tomorrow, but take the opportunity & make the best of today.

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.

Daily inspiration, wall colour

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.

Daily inspiration, shirt & jumper

Yeah, yeah, I know – it’s too often black & white whenever I post something to do with style or fashion. I hope it inspires you despite the classic look. I find striped shirt, under a thin knitted jumper, very stylish.

Daily inspiration, oversized

certainly not a wallpaper but an oversized canvas stretched over a frame with floral pattern. Works very well in this environment.

Wellness

We have entered a period that usually occurs one or two times a year in our home. My husband wants to get in shape but prefers to not exercise or work out. Our boys don’t care anymore, they eat healthy most of the time. So I have to support him in his efforts by participating. (at least at home).

I’m not looking or searching for pool images but they just seem to turn up in front of me nevertheless. I think this one have been around for a while. I really like the backyard, the lap pool & the colour of the water.

Daily inspiration, kitchen paper

It is always nice with solutions that work in daily life. This one is not special in any way, but it’s simple, stylish & serves its purpose. The leather strap holds together the paper so it doesn’t fall down every time you tear off a piece.

This is an image from a Danish home, one of many fine interiors images. It is attractive with white & dark brown, some new & some old. It creates an interesting experience & feeling that inspires – which requires some talent to achieve.

Daily inspiration, skewers

I’m a little hungry & craving something sweet, salty & simple. How about melon, feta, rocket, spinach & nuts and … why not on skewers to make it simple & easy. Prosciutto is additional if you’re not vegetarian.

Daily inspiration, pooool

It took a while for us to figure out which colour to select, for the pool. Or to be more precise, pool surface really – since that’s what impacts on how you perceive colour of the water. Depending on how the sun falls, how much greenery there is around the pool, how tall the trees are … the experience is different from one pool to another. I wanted to have the turquoise color that reminds me a lot of hotel pools. It has a faint blue turquoise tone that probably will deepen when the garden is finished.

Green was apparently very popular but it did not fit into our preferences – it looks however nice out here.

Daily inspiration, vegetarian

The food tonight was captured one block outside of my workplace, on the way home – in the totally vegetarian restaurant – together with my husband. He tries to eat healthy, which is not his strength. I chose a filling lasagna with fresh vegetables & slices of garlic bread. He chose a rich salad. Very delicious food no matter what you choose.

Daily inspiration, cleaning

Keeping the home clean, tidy & in order is not an easy task. Especially when we both work full time plus some more. Washing, cleaning, window cleaning, dusting, washing … but I must admit that there is not much that beats the feeling of totally clean rooms with newly made beds & the scent of soap.

Daily inspiration, sea view

It sure is a great sea view – a tireless & varied environment that switches according to the weather, wind, season or just acting whimsical. Spacious inside as well as outside. And furnished to allow space for socializing or just to spread out when necessary. The dining area, living & outdoor space – enough space to breath.

Isn’t this charming? The perfect country kitchen & ideal for those who have a fondness for this interior style. It has all the attributes that appeals such as shutters, rustic floor tiles, stuccoes, patterned wallpaper, basket & gas stove. There’s something special about this type of environments, after all.

Daily inspiration, shoes

I am of the opinion that what you have on your feet determines how you feel. Especially if it’s the wrong shoes for the clothes you wear. Better go home & change immediately, actually. But shoes are fun & says a lot about the personality …

Even though I’m more of a neutral color palette person, with basic colors rather than bold colors, I find it very inspiring with environments similar to this home. It’s very well done & harmonically through the entire space.

Daily inspiration, Monday’s

A free weekend is unusual for me, who works inconvenient hours. And when I finally am free, what do I do … we use the Sunday for cleaning – dusting, vacuuming, wiping floors & windows … but on the other hand, it’s very nice with a clean home & relaxing once it’s done.
