Daily inspiration, duvet covers


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.

Daily inspiration, splash of colour


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.

Daily inspiration, candlesticks


These candlesticks are just adorable. In wood, & in black or white with a nice cravat, which gives it a personal touch. Really sweet!

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.

Daily inspiration, stack of pillows


These pillows are exactly the kind of colours & patterns that fit me right now. Sometimes I can’t get enough of pillows in all shapes but I have now narrowed down the number drastically. These are nice, pleasant & discreet patterns which are always relevant in my world.

Daily inspiration, coloured glass


Great setting with a nice mix. The rear wall in the white tiles, shelves with brackets, old industrial chairs & those amazing fine bottles in coloured glass. In addition, the dining area near the window with nice natural light.

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.

Daily inspiration, wheel bench


Design is fun when it makes you think, makes you react. Also when it is functional while it may be an example of a combination of different things – that work together. I would not mind this bench in my place, to sit on & to move around whenever it’s needed.

Starting to be fond of navy blue again. It was a while ago now. I felt that it became so boring, for no reasons really. So, there’s a few new items in this colour, back in the wardrobe again.

Daily inspiration, craftsmanship


Talent, creativity, and craftsmanship – something I have great admiration for. It is a joy to experience details in a piece of furniture, or else, where people have put time &  force to accomplish something lasting.

Daily inspiration, notebook


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?

Daily inspiration, raspberry sorbet


I am just guessing, I have no idea if it is raspberry sorbet but I don’t care really. I just think it looks delicious, perfect food styling & served on a white rectangular plain plate which enhances the whole impression.

Daily inspiration, architecture


Buildings as artwork – yes, of course! That’s what I would call this creation, this design, this architecture. It is also delightful with the curved body, the choice of material on the facade, and the beautiful colour that provides an energy boost in the everyday life.

I’m not overly fond of decorated furniture or too many materials, mixed together. But sometimes, i’s a rule with exceptions – such as in this image with the dining area, so personal, exciting & interesting.

Time to sit back


I know that i have said it before but i don’t mind repeating myself, what makes a restaurant is more than what is served on the menu. It is the total experience actually. The moment you open the door to enter in, you can immediately feel the atmosphere – if not, then it is not worth it.

At least, if you are after a memorable night in a nice place with great feeling for the whole experience – whether it is the menu, people with you & around you, waiters, the space, the lighting, furniture, etc. I do really mean it when I say that it doesn’t matter if it’s exclusive, famous, simple or just a whole in the wall.

Fabrics makes a difference in a home, and if you then can put together colours, shapes & materials so they fit together into a whole – then you have a home to thrive in.

Daily inspiration, blond


There are so many homes that inspires in many different ways. This is from Stockholm. I like the dual-cabinet rows that goes up to the ceiling that can hide a lot of things. The white table along with the chairs, probably made ​​of oak – gives the room the famous Swedish blonde expression.

Daily inspiration, eclectic


Yet another wonderful mix of different furniture in a very inspiring set up. I would find it hard to like if it was colour on the walls too. But with a simple base with white walls & dark floor – and a safe taste for how it should look, you get this inspirational eclectic look.

I like this small corner, not overly furnished, with the floor lamp, small coffee table with four round stands & most of all, the beautiful armchair. That it’s white walls & wooden floor makes it even better, of course.

Daily inspiration, small houses


I guess I’m young at heart, because I really love small houses, wooden toys, robots in plate & other similar forms. These are things that make me happy, reminds me of my sons upbringing & other pleasant memories. Small, sometimes insignificant things, which warms in everyday life.

Daily inspiration, simple


An older part of a home, not a kitchen, not a hall but perhaps a walk-through. It is beautiful in its raw form with bare walls & worn floors. Sometimes it’s not much that is needed, for it to be perceived appealing.

Daily inspiration, pattern design


I would not go so far as to say that I am a pattern lover. No, I prefer the ordinary with stripes, plaid one & other flower in simple graphic cut. But on the other hand, I like to see it in other situations or places. It’s fun, interesting & inspiring – just not at my house.

Daily inspiration, solution


It’s a clever solution, using a plain wooden shelf, maybe paint it in white, and  use striped fabric to cover, to limit visibility to the part where you want to store less fun things. It’s a fun & unusual solution.

Daily inspiration, friend on wheels


I once bought a roll trailer, spontaneously, that I have never regretted. It is made ​​of birch & white with large white wooden wheels & leather about the rod where you pull it. I’m not particularly interested in using it as a cocktail cart – I have it more like a book trolley. With nice big coffee table books on it.

Daily inspiration, cushions


I can easily admit that I have way too many cushions & had to reduce those by only saving the cushion covers so I could get them to fit in our storage space. I have a fondness for textiles in general but I do not buy everything – it has to be right patterns, colours, material & style, for it to fit. I like these provided on the images – but still, not sure if I’d by them.

I have a weakness for black & white checkered floor. It is neat in old homes with well maintained interior from 60-70 century as well as in new homes where they sought to combine old & new. It’s graphical, neat & somewhat playfully.
