In the good old days

It is nice to visit old relatives who have retained their old furniture. It feels like you are stepping into another time, another world. There are frames with photographs arranged everywhere. Glass bottles & glass vases in amounts plus a lot of old books & heavy draped curtains. Not to mention sofas or armchairs. It’s absolutely adorable. Quite simply because you don’t throw things purely because they have aged, as they are still fully functional. Something that we ought to embrace more.

Here are some images that I have put together, that reminds of old times, if I may put it that simple. Furniture, gadgets, textiles & old pillows with prints, picture frames & so on. I am especially fond of the last shot where contemporary furnishings have been blended together with the old desktop – new & old come together nicely together into a whole. Really nice!

Black & white

Inspiration can be found everywhere & there are always details that catches the eye, even if only a colour or a tiny item that attracts. Some sees the whole solution where others might not see anything special at all. It’s hard to tell what makes some things immensely popular, where many suddenly seem to like or fall for the same things. While similar solutions are completely without charm & arouses no-must-have- feeling at all.

There’s not much to say really – black & white always works, although I’m aware of & respect those who want more colour in their everyday lives. I just think that it’s nice to have a base that always works & which is also easy to change, when you feel like it. With simple means.
