Beautiful & inviting kitchen with caramel colours popping up on the chair, accents & kitchen cabinets – as a contrast to the dark floor.

We have saved all Christmas ornaments since our boys were small & they want the same ones every year in the Christmas tree. At least to keep the colours in red & green with some gold accents.

Surely, one can claim that traditions from childhood has a tremendous influence on us.

Daily inspiration, raised floor level

Nice with a raised floor level – you get a substantial difference in the room’s various features & uses. Bright & inviting – however, very beige – but the yellow colour-accent helps.

Daily inspiration, antiques

Sweet things for the eye in our everyday, isn’t that wonderful, really – for the well being, at least. I think it makes us humans more friendly & more compassionate when we have nice & beautiful things around us. It might sound silly but it’s about the beauty in things & in people. Not perfection but valuable things that has certain memories connected to them. Or people that has certain behaviours, smiles, insight or other, that makes them irreplaceable. It is about the feeling things or individuals create within us. One cannot go on collecting people, but you can surround yourself with them as well as other things you happen to like too.

Bike tour / 205

Sometimes, things exists in environments, to fill up the space or to create a sense. It’s clear that they are there for a reason or another. These are often common things that not really creates any particular reaction. They fit so well into the environment that they become easy to ignore…or maybe not. That is, if it’s not too excessively or seems too unnatural. I am thinking of bicycles, as an example. Such as when these are placed in a hall … or becomes an eye-catcher in a part of a room. Not that it’s really needed because there are some clever solutions for that. Someone, has designed a shelf / rack that supports the cycle, while the shelf is used for small items. But it seems likely as more cool to just lean the bike a bit loosely against the wall.

Bikes are used frequently in various interiors. Perhaps because they give life or realism to the environment. There’s of course a need to bring in the bike into the home, given the housing situation or the residential area. You want to know & ensure that you have your bike left there, the next morning. Well, anyway, if it works indoors & you have the space then why not… just take a look at the images below.
