National Day

Two historical events were crucial to our country & hence the celebration of Sweden’s National Day.
June 6, 1523 Gustav Vasa is elected king of Sweden. Sweden then broke out of the Kalmar Union with Denmark & ​​Norway & became an independent country with its own king & a new royal dynasty – the Vaasa family.
June 6, 1809, Parliament wrote under the form of government that laid the foundation for modern Sweden & the foundations of our state, which paved the way for the democracy Sweden is known for today.

National Day is also a secular holiday. Which makes it possible for everyone, regardless of belief, to wind up around National Day.
It strengthens the image of a country based on shared values ​​& democracy – important pillars of our development. We also celebrate our fantastic nature with the universal right, the long period of peace & freedom, the modern industry, our cultural heritage & architecture.

In the spring of 1893 the first spring party was held at Skansen in Stockholm – the party got its end on June 6 with a big flag party. Flag Day 1983 became our official national day & from 2005 also national holiday.

Botanical gardens Singapore

With the botanical gardens only a short walk away from our house, it’s quite natural to then spend time in beautiful surrounding for daily walks. Especially with the social distancing that we all have to practice for everyone’s safety.

The gardens were stablished in 1859 and on UNESCO’s Heritage Site. It’s 60 acres of land transformed from a disused plantation into the popular recreational garden today – a recreation for jogging & lazing about, as well as a leading centre for botanical & horticultural research. The National Orchid Garden boasts the world’s largest orchid display, with over 60,000 plants & orchid plants.

Daily inspiration, outdoor lighting

We live in an old house that’s that is classified as heritage but it’s not older than around 110 years. We can’t change things on the outside which is fine with us since this is something we care about. But we can change luminaries in the entrance, although it’s important to be careful so it fits with the surrounding. I think this one would look really nice, modern but still with a hint of tradition & respect for timeless style.
