“Waistband”

A very “pretty” coffee table for the small size, round shape & decorative “waistband” that makes the design stand out.

Leather shoes

Shoes shows up rather regularly on the blog & here’s another one that I like. It’s a steady in leather with laces and a beautiful dark brown colour. I would prefer it a little neater with a lower and thinner heel but nevertheless – very stylish!

Fresh inspiration

The lemon tree in our backyard is already full of ripe lemons with an aroma that is spreading through the air. Seasonal vegetables in wooden crates are loaded on the sidewalks outside each shop – it’s a beautiful sight with all exciting colours.

Bowl & cutlery

I’m not very fond of noodles which seems to be something that surprises many when this topics comes up – which is frequent in my environment, with Asian restaurants all over the place. There’s other great alternatives to chose from but noodles is the thing for many, as I understand it.
This image is not for the sake of the noodle salad in itself but for the design of bowl and salad cutleries.

Simple design

Living Room with simple design & space despite the small place. Cushions in dark colors and thick material with furniture that is easy to move around. Good enough for me!

Captivating

A captivating image that reminiscent of the early fashions when it was usual with a feminine look with tight cut, quality materials, handcrafted tailoring and simple timeless garments. With this great modern handbag in dark green & black – the contrast becomes really tempting.

Small and sweet

A small apartment, loft, studio or whatever you would name it. A nice combination of wood & white with a dominant staircase to the next level – in wood – looks tiny but feels big. Small and sweet for sure.

Apple Galette

Light golden layers of pastry topped with slices of sweet apples makes this French-style tart, with its thin cake base, an excellent choice for a moment of joy to the afternoon tea – or whenever really!

Sunglasses

It has long since been time to pick out a pair of sunglasses. The sun is extremely strong and dazzling – not good for the eyes at all. This image is just to reflect need – I am for the classic version, aviator glasses.

On the floor

This is two images from the same apartment, taken from two different anglers, as you can see. The carpet is the room’s focal point, which is not so strange given the room’s simplicity & the colour and patterns of the rug.

Objects

So I picked up a couple of my findings from a market for a couple of years ago. I have always been fond of trays – we have a whole bunch of what we believe is an adequate size for a coffee / tea cup and a sandwich, instead of plates. But in this case it is about smaller trays that are for smaller attractive object – whether they are edible or not.

Scarfs

I’ve become fond of scarves, the smaller models.You could say It is bandannas but they are a little more classic in style. Smaller and larger sizes, you could play around a bit with usage of them, but if you are a bit like I am, a quite ordinary woman, then it’s more towards the cautious style.

Bric-a-brac.se

We haven’t had the time to watch the successful TV show, Downton Abbey. Mad perhaps, given all in our surroundings that have been totally enchanted. Well, it’s never too late – so we started recently and are already in its third season. Certainly, worth the time, I am charmed by the environments, characters, the clothes and everything that is typical for that time. I think these images from a Swedish website illustrates that time in an excellent manner.

What’s meant …

Strange as it may sound, life works in mysterious ways and what is meant to happen, happens in due course. New job, new colleagues or new acquaintances who can change one’s outlook on life, new insights that develop or guides you on to a new or different path.

Wood materials

A range of different environments with wood materials, within as well as outside – feels very appealing right now. Perhaps the homesickness I feel can be alleviated a little by inspiration of material that has been around me since childhood.

Squares, in thin lines

Not too tight skirt, knee-length white with simple pattern – squares in thin lines – with a soft jumper, tucked … it is my preference at the moment.

Fried halomi cheese burger

I have gone from one favorite (vegetarian) restaurant to three. It doesn’t sound special at all but it is actually. They are all within a few minutes walking distance from where I work – with excellent-composed and well-prepared food. Not bad at all!

Corner

We all have a favourite corner somewhere where we like to sit outside when the sun shines. It may look anyhow, it’s not that important, but the actual location has to be pleasant.

Sneakers

Now, you may be thinking, what on earth does she mean by sneakers, when the whole outfit is eye-catching. It’s neat with the petticoat in white to the white turtleneck, under the tight dark blue dress … but the whole thing is topped by white sneakers that pulls down the expression to user level – i.e. everyday-friendly-usage.

Location

There are so many nice houses but they don’t always need look particularly nice – considering how much the environment can contribute to the experience of the house. The actual location is sometimes essential in itself. These are some of my favorites lately.

Knitwear (turtleneck)

I know I’ve mentioned before that I’m very fond of turtleneck / polo shirts. I came across two knitted ones in beige – one is straight with slightly narrow silhouette in cream and the other one, a little straighter in shape and goes more towards sand-colour. This was a while ago & they are stylish and rather perfect in the current weather.

I’ve added one more lately to my “collection”, in black with a neck that’s a little wider, but longer so that it can be rolled a number of times. Looks good with a shirt with a collar under. Believe me!

Right size

Many pools are often relatively large, oversized or have basically been built into the facade that there’s hardly room to step into the pool. I like this environment that is manageable and moderate in size – but still has everything you need within reach.

Rustic and attractive

This may seem a relatively dark interior to really appeal to me. Black wood floor, grey walls, wooden ceiling – even the sink, the table top and ceramic tiles are dark. But still – the style is rustic and attractive.

This hidden idyll is small but not amiss. Great natural materials worked together into a cozy entirety – with warmth and greenery as accessories. A nice hidden spot.

Type of shoe

My favourite type of shoes right now. Looks great to jeans or if you want to dress up a bit. Low heels are important so they don’t look or are clumsy to wear.

Wood furniture

Nice furnitures in timeless and simple design. The wooden sofa with soft puffy cushions does well with the sofa table in an otherwise white environment.

Rooftop

It’s something romantic with rooftops, chimneys, houses around – where you are close to the sky and the stars. You are isolated but still close to the neighbors and surrounding residents. You have your space where no one can see you or interfere – a bit like when building huts as a child.

White

After being at home for a visit, I was reminded and affected by the simple, light decor that is general in my surroundings. Great to once again see wooden chairs, white environments, lots of wood and the lamp ‘Bumling”,

Office

It makes a big difference how the workplace looks & feels. It is a public space, shared by many and has great significance for the well-being and productivity. However, it does not mean that you have to invest amounts to achieve the effect. It can be done by small means … which in turn also affects creativity.

Happiness

Happiness, something to strive for, yet nothing you would or should expect of life or surrounding. We can’t expect to be served happiness, nor is it in the long run, sustainably to constantly seek confirmation and become dependent on others. You have to find yours & make it your own.

Stuff

Stuff or things can look so different & mean more or less for people depending on situation, time, desire, lifestyle etc. Some love to have things around & some like it to be organised. Some want less while others want more – there’s no right or wrong. We need different things at different times.

Guess what I would need right now – the image at the end of this post!

Coats

Outerwear and specifically coats / trench coats might not be what everyone is looking for when it’s colder weather and winter in our part of the country. I have found some models in the thinner and thicker material – which works great during the day and the evening, when it gets a little chillier.

Chairs

Nice furniture in a nice environment around the grill – not a bad idea with a rocking chair instead of traditional outdoor furniture.
