Tasteful simplicity – not always easy to achieve.
A typical room in an apartment with light wood floors, white doors, functional interior & timeless design – in Scandinavia.

The lamp is of course super nice but the wall is not far behind. Ribbed, with the perfect beige color in the right tone.
Designed kitchens should always offer a stylish, functional look, preferably in high-quality materials but above all, in a timeless and well-functioning atmosphere. This solution & look will prove it right long term.
Time for an image with a delicious dessert – chocolate cheese cake 🍰 with triple chocolate layers.
I’m always a sucker for pretty pictures. An old piano with sheet music, stool with floral cover, a few different pictures & arranged still life – and there you go!
A picture can change an entire room, contribute to the mood & inspire new ideas.
Royal Copenhagen, a classic timeless design that’s a sight for the eye on the dinner table. Or on display.
We have our pool just outside the terrace where we live – in a condominium – with 31 degrees all year around – in Singapore. Despite this, I long for beautiful pool pictures from near & far.
It is not only wonderful with summer, sun & a terrace where you can spend your days & evenings. In addition, the house style & color is a sunny story in itself.
Burrata fresh Italian cow milk cheese (occasionally buffalo milk) made from mozarella & cream – with blood orange.
The outer shell is solid mozzarella, while the inside contains stracciatella (variety of gelato, consisting of milk-based ice cream filled with fine, irregular shavings of chocolate) & cream – giving it an unusual, soft texture.
Too beautifully made, to eat 😉
A handmade Rug Collection at Swedish Granit. This rug collection is hand-knotted. A handmade rug is an investment in long traditions, craftsmanship with a long lifetime. 100% wool, 100% recycled PET or 100% jute. The PET rugs are also woven in two colours, which makes them reversible.
Simply beautiful 👏👏👏
A wonderfully nice cottage that has been styled in favour of a paint brand, in a very appealing way. Simple, harmonious and with genuine details.
Someone once said: travel is an investment in yourself.
So true ❤️
Textiles are a great passion, something that has always existed in one way or another in my life. Through the work & in the various homes we have created. Here is a nice example with a bed made of single colour beddings with a lot of warmth & comfort.
An apartment building with full transparency to the various residences, it’s like a movie scene, the beautiful building with exciting interiors.

The need for greenery, clean air, forest & water around me has never been greater. It has a tremendous calming effect on mood, thoughts & health.
Small details makes a new change & a nice difference to the home & mood.
An apartment to enjoy, true eye candy due to the the well thought out color scale, the airiness & simplicity of the interior philosophy.
A home with lots of details, with a white base accentuating the simple & beautiful.
Handwoven & reversible mats made of recycled PET bottles which are ground down & then spun into a thin yarn. The yarn is then woven into rugs. Colourful, sustainable & beautiful.
Interesting houses stand out from the ordinary. This is factory produced & mounted & fitted on site – black facade makes the house special & with a factory production, the price is somewhat lower, with some luck.
A home built of precious (vintage) possessions that makes the whole experience straight through very personal, exciting & colorful.
Travelling, discovering, exploring – but most of all, relaxing – that’s a great holiday.
Details of everyday life around us – we may not always take in and appreciate. The everyday beauty.
A nice hall with solid carpentry, nice color choices & nicely patterned wallpaper.
A nice corner, neat & tidy for space, easy to maintain. And wonderful for late evenings in front of the fireplace.
A lot of outdoor posts lately, I know. But with summer almost everywhere & living in a tropical environment (Singapore) it’s a given that you’ll be influenced by these images, right…

The perfect little place with everything you need in one place. Yes, please!

Neat solution to start with, and so functional & space saving. Ideal for children up to a certain age before they start to need (or ask for) their own room.
The whole room in white, very light, but above all light in the room due to white floor & white walls – and built-in white bookcase with small storage strictly organized. Peace of mind!

Imagine a nicer place to spend small moments of joy, a book, a cup of coffee & the nice view outside.

Ikea’s Stockholm collection, a couple of years back. Will definitely remain as a classic for its timeless expression.

A hidden oasis, perfect image in the current heat. (year-round actually, here in Singapore).
It’s not everyone’s cup fo tea with colorless fashion, so to speak. I get those comments quite often on those posts. But nevertheless, I personally prefer that type of clothing but of course appreciate all kinds of fashion through the ages for pure inspiration.
A pure joy to wake up for breakfast & be met by beautiful bright furniture in a nice environment.

Citrus salad with seed & nut crunch – vibrant enough to wake up tired taste buds at breakfast time.
Patterns & colors are important for a home – and easy to replace & renew when the need arises.
Yepp, this is so Swedish & common in Swedish homes. A nordic style that is clean, functional & timeless.
Skill-full use of patterns & colors without the feeling of a crowded small surface. Much thanks to retained light floor & ceiling plus windows with plenty of natural light.
White long pleated skirt, a thin knitted jumper with matching very popular bag.
The perfect summer shoe to all kinds of clothes. Great colours as well.
A pear & chocolate loaf beautifully done. A feast for the eyes.
A typical Swedish interior with well chosen functional furnishings & colour scheme.
An evening on the terrace with the most beautiful sunset 🌅
Just so beautiful ❤️
