The well known online store Ellos in Sweden opened its doors to their first physical store in the Mall of Scandinavia in Stockholm sometime in September. It’s been a well known mail order company for decades & known for their products – fashion, interior, homeware, etc. I would have liked been back home now for a quick visit.

Scandinavian feel

A stylish Scandinavian feel to this store with ascetic furnishings & light interior with light woods.

The glass panes & the patterned floor reinforces the impression.

We haven’t had the time to watch the successful TV show, Downton Abbey. Mad perhaps, given all in our surroundings that have been totally enchanted. Well, it’s never too late – so we started recently and are already in its third season. Certainly, worth the time, I am charmed by the environments, characters, the clothes and everything that is typical for that time. I think these images from a Swedish website illustrates that time in an excellent manner.

Daily inspiration, clean water projects

Marie-Stella-Maris opened their first store in Amsterdam & are making heads turn. Not only because they have a great store with beautiful home as well as body products. But because they have pledged to donate a percentage of proceeds, to clean drinking water projects worldwide. Something to celebrate & support if you happen to live or shop nearby.

Look up!

I like colours but I do not use that much colour in my life. It’s enjoyable to experience colours & the way people make use of it in their lives. I admire people who uses colors when they dress for everyday or special occasions. The way they decorate the home with colours they love or just how they colour their hair in crazy combinations. It’s exciting & liberating. As soon as I try, it just feels totally wrong & I have to go back to my neutrals again. But let’s celebrate diversity & the impulses we get by our differences. That’s good enough for me!
