Solution

String is a perfect shelf system that’s adaptable & can be designed into many different functions & looks. This is a great way to solve a room with a sloping ceiling where the surface is used efficiently with a solution that is both useful & makes space for beautiful still lifes.

Art

We’ve been home in Sweden for a short visit after almost two years of isolation & are now traveling a couple of weeks in Germany before we return home again. We’ve made many visits to various museums. Partly for the art, partly for the architecture (many museum buildings are fantastic) but also for the great silence when you slowly walk around looking & taking in the works. It’s a very calm & soothing environment.

Exhibition

One of the things that’s always on the list when traveling, is to visit a couple of museums. The exhibition at Städel museum in Frankfurt was a wonderful experience & will remain as a precious memory for life.

Edvard Munch – Norwegian painter. His best known work, The Scream, has become one of the iconic images of world art.
Claude Monet – a French painter & founder of impressionist painting who is seen as a key precursor to modernism, especially in his attempts to paint nature as he perceived it.
Helena Schjerfbeck – a Finnish painter. A modernist painter, she is known for her realist works & self-portraits, and also for her landscapes & still lifes.

Museum

I love museum visits – the buildings, the exhibitions, the premises & the experience. And I would never miss the chance to visit the museum shop. It’s always nice, inspiring & enlightening. This one in Frankfurt is just mind blowing ⭐️

Frankfurt | Germany

The Rhine has had & still has enormous significance for trade in the countries concerned. Also a great strategic importance, as many castles & forts along the river testify. Today it was just beautiful in itself & the recurring bridges link the different areas with the city as the center. A beautiful place to walk along.

Balconies

It’s something very special with these balconies from 1950’s. It’s typical for this decade with balconies that’s cantilevered, in concrete & with steel railings – often in canvas or in corrugated steel sheet for protection or privacy.

A country style that never goes out of style. Very cozy, comfortable, lots of color & patterns, large rugs, generous surfaces & inviting.

Interior

Sometimes I ponder about how big an area you really need, without feeling trapped. I have a preference for smaller homes, that can decorate functionally with what’s needed for everyday life. The main thing is access to an outdoor area. Either way, this interior is an example of a living room in a size that fits. And looks good.

Granted

Truth be told, there’s so much to be thankful for. But we get so busy with our everyday lives & everything that doesn’t really work as we want & had hoped, that we rarely stop & count the blessings we’ve been enriched with.
