The look – when flowers bloom inside a vase of clear glass – the transparent sheer expression. Beautiful & somewhat unusual. Inspiration!
Practical & functional set of combined matchbox & tea light, pleasing to the eye – great design 👍
Finger food, served on a wooden tray – simple & nice 💛
White flower box on legs that gives a nice height, which can be used flexibly – plants, books, magazines, frames or as still life with beautiful things, easy to change with seasons.
Beige & white color shades in the small bedroom area feels fresh & appealing. Despite the simple styling. Sometimes what is toned down can become more eye-catching & interesting.
It’s not so common nowadays with kerosene lanterns but aren’t they just amazingly beautiful…in all its simplicity.
A beautiful B&B in Mallorca. Cream-colored façade, beautiful & suitable to the blue pool water, and the nice shutters, pots & parasols – makes you long for a stay.
It is quite simply styled but still looking so great. Light blue long-sleeved t-shirt, black pleated skirt & black long leather gloves.
Handmade ceramic mug in white with a loop handle – a beautiful mug for daily use.
A slightly worn dirt gray look that stands up well over the years – a favourite style selection for many.
French fashion brand Veja, founded 2004 & known for its sustainable sneakers – utilizing recycled plastic bottles for the production.
Pine, untreated, well preserved & with white details added to the environment makes you love this timeless style. Looks great 👍
It’s such a privilege to travel & explore the world. The wanderlust is very obvious right now. Barcelona with it’s amazing architecture & an amazing treat. Let us hope that we soon can have the privilege back, to travel & learn about the world.
George Carlin made his way as a comedian of the 70’s & 80’s & he wrote something so very eloquent & so very appropriate, as an observation to ponder. George Carlin died early in 2008.
“The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less.
We have bigger houses & smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much & pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom & hate too often. We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years.
We’ve been all the way to the moon & back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things.
We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait.
We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less & less. These are the times of fast foods & slow digestion, big men & small character, steep profits & shallow relationships.
These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies & pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.
It is a time when there is much in the showroom window & nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you & a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.
Remember to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up & leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart & it doesn’t cost a cent.
Remember, to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner & your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss & an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.
Remember to hold hands & cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
And always remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by those moments that take our breath away”.
⁃ George Carlin
Stylish & attractive mix – the colour of the sofa, the blanket in black and white, that covers the seat, the low glass table, the stools that are striped – the whole combination looks great!
Sometimes I find it very appealing with the romantic vintage style, a little French, a little feminine, and a lot of flashbacks.
Renaissance house facade in Prague – that only is worth a visit besides other amazing experiences.
When shooting for different purposes, it’s easy to zoom in on a corner & style it to get a reasonably finished impression. And black / white decor always hits home with the audience. Simple & nice!
Singapore’s official fruit is the durian. Some people regards the durian as having a pleasantly sweet fragrance, whereas others find the aroma overpowering with an unpleasant odour. The smell evokes reactions & the persistence of its odour, which may linger for several days, has led to the fruit’s banishment from certain hotels & public transportation. Despite the stench, durian is considered to be extremely healthy.
The Esplanade building next to Marina Bay is inspired by this “beloved” fruit.
It’s always nice with welcoming plants at the entrance – here in a nice plant box with legs for the height. Looks great when contrasting so well with the facade.
Baklava – an addictively tasty & crispy phyllo dough cake with nut filling that must be tried. Especially the Turkish variant that’s not soaked in syrup, but just very crispy. And have it preferably, together with black strong coffee.
Delightful antique sofa with its original upholstery. A pure work of art & a rarely seen sight nowadays. A craft that should be handled with love.
Exciting architecture with simple & stylish decor, in a bright interior & the amazing view – what more do you really need …
Comfortable furniture & natural colours in an interior with white walls & wooden flooring – always nice.
An amazing modern wooden house with large windows embedded in greenery with the Swedish blue sky as a backdrop. Created by the talented m.arkitektur / Martina Eriksson.
Spaciously furnished with loads of great natural light from the dominant window. Horizontal panel on the wall creates another layer & decorated in light gray-blue tones provides a light feel.
What would a room look like without curtains – they really do a lot for the experience. To reinforce the ceiling height, make sure to attach the rails as close to the roof structure as possible.
What a dream to have access to an old cottage & the opportunity to renovate carefully – to preserve the old & unique while adding simple means to modern elements – a luxury of a higher degree.
Summer, and lots of opportunities to wander around in all those small towns in the countryside, with summer-opened barns, shops & flee markets, for unique finds as a bargain hunter.
Stockholm City Library, created by architect Gunnar Asplund. An amazing building & a delight from the exterior into the interior. Listed as one of the most beautiful libraries in the world.
Fashion & decor now go hand in hand. Knitted pillowcases that remind of knitted thick sweaters you have under the jacket when it is cold – warm your soul indoors & are pleasing to the eye as well.
Flowering plants (in various pots & baskets) is such a pure delight to the eye. Medication for the soul 🌺🌸🌼
Nice business idea that’s not new but still appealing – to book a hotels that feels like a home rather than – not. This one is located in UK.
I alway enjoy interiors with mixed furniture in different styles & condition – creating coziness & charm into the environment.
When there’s time, a pile of pancakes is the best start to a long breakfast.
Oh, the difference wallpaper can make to a room. The feeling, the atmosphere & the impression – and so much design to choose between.
