I’ve been up in the attic to look up our old chandelier that we bought when we were first married. What was for many many years ago. But these classic lights never goes out of time. This one is a classic chandelier, like the first picture below, but something simpler in shape. They can of course have incredibly different looks. The great thing is that they work in all areas of the home no matter what style it is.

My thought is to plug in our old one in the hallway which has high ceiling. But I guess that we have to have family council before we can take a decisions. Everyone has to have a point of view on what & why, if we are to change at home. Don’t know why we took that path when they were small, the guys. It’s not as charming now when they have the need to express what they think – all the time 🙂

Daily inspiration, outfit

Not that it’s cold because we have all year round weather but we have spring in the air & spring will officially arrive next weekend. I like the combination of white & beige in an outfit. This is neat & proper without being over the top. Works anytime! /

Daily inspiration, handwriting

A handwritten letter regardless of specific handwriting, is a luxury today. To also be able to write with liquid in old-fashioned cursive writing is hugely appealing. It is authentic & genuine, which feels quite foreign in today’s society, or at least unusual.

Daily inspiration, baby,

What could be more beautiful than an image shot without a lot of props to enhance or improve the expression. Marvelously beautiful in a natural & simple way. Credit to the photographer 🙂

Outdoor mood

Stylish summer furniture is sometimes hard to find. Especially when you have a picture in mind of how you want them to look like or if you have to adapt to a given area. In a country like Australia, you are not so dependent on the weather, in the sense that you can be outside all year round. You often see indoor furniture on porches. Sofas, armchairs & tables. I thought it looked a little tricky in the beginning, coming from a winter-land. But it’s very charming. Although, I’m continuing to stick to furniture for outdoor use. However, this is not about outdoor furniture, but about being outdoors. You’re supposed to use what the occasion offers to enjoy the pleasant weather. Our winter here in Australia have been fantastic. One of the warmest winters in 40 years, I believe. The winter here is almost like our summer in Sweden. So, with this beautiful winter weather, I find my self in outdoor mood.
