Subtle

Christmas does not have to be overwhelmingly decorative & scream “I’m here”, which is ok if you prefer it, of course. But it can also be subtle, gentle & beautiful in a simple way too.

Striped wallpaper

Perfect choice of wallpaper to a bedroom – narrow stripes, discreet but still adds a lot to the feeling & the atmosphere in the room.

Brass mugs

A nice atmospheric Christmas image where the content warms your soul as much as the need for beautiful things – like these brass mugs that glimmers & sparkles on the table, ready to be used.

Preference

You probably know my preference by now if you followed the blog for a while. I post inspiring images because I’m primarily an image enthusiast or whatever the word that describes the need to look at inspiring pictures. Inspiration for me is what catches the eye, creating pleasure & curiosity or sheer joy in the moment. It is all too often not the actual style, design or colour that suits me personally.

Now I wear mostly jeans / slacks & T-shirt for work because that is what is needed but my personal choice could look like this – clean straight lines, no significant details & quite basic colour scale. It makes my heart beat indeed.

Passion

A wonderful setting for a passionate bookworm – would suit me perfect with no consideration to time or people. The puffy generous sofa in the lovely blue colour do its part to increase the comfort.

Marzipan

Sweet marzipan figurines in classic Christmassy colours – wonderful little elf helpers that are too beautiful to be eaten up – I think.

Favourite

I always come back to one of my favourite pieces, the turtleneck jumper. This, in very thin soft material that fits like a second skin on your body. Just one thing, it’s a little too hot to be used during the summer season that has just begun.

Dark grey

An appealing image with a glimpse into a bedroom – and a made bed, in the dark gray bed textiles. It is something I often fall for – made up beds & beddings in general.

Table setting

Table setting in our home is very basic – tablecloth, crockery, napkins, candlesticks & cut flowers are usually in natural colors with an occasional color. This picture is quite the opposite & perhaps something that we could take on, when in the mood.

Bed linen

Bed linen is a blessing – there is no better feeling than to curl up in fresh new sheets & a freshly made bed. Preferably also in linen, natural materials, and in sober simple colours.

Garden dream

We have a few days off & should really get going with a lot of projects already underway – but not at all motivated. It’s fantastic weather, the sun is shining & it’s absolutely still & quiet at the back. This is an aptly image to describe the harmony at present.

Valrhona

What is this then, a Mikado game, puzzles, jewelry or whatever … no no, it’s the world’s best chocolate with the highest quality & care for the product & planters. If you have not tried Valrhona – which is a French premium chocolate manufacturer & one of the leading producers of gastronomic chocolate in the world – I would advice to give it a go.

White floors

A fondness for white floors & walls makes me often inspired by similar rooms all the time … you can not not like white wooden floor even though it can be difficult to keep them fresh, especially when it’s painted wood floors too. But it’s definitely worth the extra efforts.
