Table lights

Although it brightens early, early & it’s bright throughout the day, it gets dark around eight thirty to nine o’clock in the evening – which means it’s almost pitch black. Then it’s indeed nice with small points of light in different parts of the house. It looks cozy & inviting with the black background outside. But not only that, it’s additionally nicely with table lamps in various designs that fits with the room in general, but also enhances the feeling of comfort & eye candy.

It’s clearly that I’m stuck in a certain colourless world that I appreciate & have great fondness for. I’m completely happy with that but am constantly reminded by my more colourful friends how completely “boring” it is – which makes me think of the situation vice versa. Ha!

Grey again

I guess that it can be a bit boring to have a look at different sofas, yet again in grey. I can’t help it, it’s what I like & prefer. We are looking at new sofas & have been around & seen a lot of nice designs & colours – but we always end up in wanting one in grey. Maybe, maybe it will end up with one in white, we’ll see!

Stylish solitaires

Here & there you see ladders standing, either casually or deliberately, in different environments … often without one notes them immediately. When you are scrolling through magazines, catalogues or other, you can many times find things that recurs, in one way or another. Either it’s a trendy thing or just props which works in the environment. Blogs work that way many times. Stylish appealing images shown on a popular blog, explodes soon within the blogosphere. You get to see those pictures almost everywhere. To that extent, that they almost become worn out. There is nothing wrong in it  of course, that’s how it works when we have great interest in something whether it’s in interior design, fashion, food, photography … or whatever it may be. (you notice how limited my interests are, right?)

Anyway, to get to the point, all of a sudden I found myself seeing  ladders everywhere. Used as a furniture to store things on – hang clothes, jewelry, textiles … or to use in the bathroom or just lean against the wall in the living room … or just as a solitaire or statement somewhere…even if it’s just to climb on. It makes a difference in the room, no matter what. Don’t you think so?

Personal touch

I’m leaving Christmas to rest for a while even if it Lucia today back home. Instead, it will be about interiors in varying styles – no extremes – but a bit more about small differences or rather taste, actually. I’m not a daring person when it comes to home decor. I am, after all, a fairly ordinary woman & therefore choose the images that are common but appealing in different ways. You know by now that I’m rather beige & predictable in my taste. I like it in that way, you see!

A home is something we all have in common, where we create our own world … our own space, our way of life & living. Some like to have it as in a magazine, others want to find their own thing. Some build their homes from memories of their childhood. Again, some have no direction, but it gets as it gets, AND usually it becomes good … because it’s about lifestyle. In fact, there are no limitations, more than in our heads. We are taught or influenced by people we spend time with, newspapers we read or TV programs we watch. The older we get, the more often we end up in the style we ar grown up with. It’s like as we sometimes take after habits or behaviors after our parents, despite the fact that we said – I’ll never do this or that. It happens unconsciously, simply. The force of a habit is great.

Now, not that there’s something wrong with that, just a general observation. It’s precisely what makes things so interesting, right? The perfect, or the half-finished, or that which is in constant change. Or the odd or unusual or completely ordinary – the personal touch!
