White tiles

Tiles are always the right time, an excellent material to use in the kitchen & bathroom. There is a huge selection to choose from & fantastic design & structure. I like the classic size of 20×20 or 10×10 cm alternatively subway tiles.

Most things look good, in the right environment – however, I prefer white. Boring & ordinary perhaps but right for me.

Street art

We are hired as private drivers, part-time, usually involuntarily & unprepared – I may not have told you that! It’s various activities, dinners, gigs & other we are asked to drive our boys to, and it’s unpredictable. To put it nicely – we get to see places we otherwise wouldn’t. Different suburbs, neighbourhoods & areas where they usually meet with friends.

So in other words, inspiration from the streets today – it’s not about aesthetics, it’s about peoples creativity. The way people can change the street scene, not through architecture but by being ingenious in a simple, down to earth-way. What’s exciting is that it can turn up anywhere & unexpected. It makes me think about the person behind & the reasoning. I call it street art, where others might look at it as clutter or graffiti…perhaps.

Daily inspiration, charm

I like the homely feeling with metal bed, squared bed linen & large-patterned wallpaper. The beige wall lamp, the bedside table & the small details on, contributes to the whole. A charming mix.

Image love, Nordic

I wonder how many people would fall for this solution. It’s different with the white glazed floor & the white-painted logs on the wall & ceiling. A lovely contrast to the dark brown kitchen. It is a bit daring to take it that far but you do get a liberating expression as you become the only one to have. If I like it? Yes, sure I do!

Wallpaper / 225

Wall paper – well, I was in a wonderful little store with textiles & wallpaper when I was doing some of the Christmas shopping the other day. It wasn’t the range as much as the atmosphere & appearance in the shop – the smell, the space & the neatly folded piles. And the small the test pieces of wallpaper samples, where you hardly could make out patterns or even imagine how it would look like on the wall.

It’s a lot that is happening within that area now. With advanced technology, you can get whatever you would like on your walls, nowadays.

Enlarged photos of family, friends, idols, holiday memories or whatever. On the other hand, there are a great deal of new design on the market, which really evokes possessiveness. Great variety of beautiful motifs, graphic design, landscapes or skyline … it’s your choice!  Wall paper is a good way to “dress” the room in pattern or color that provides a personal touch, express your personality & provide cosiness. It’s a great benefit today, that  they are easy to put up & even take down to move to another wall … within certain collections & trade marks.

I can’t claim that I am a big fan of wallpaper even though I like the thought & often becomes inspired. It is such a difficult choice. How do I know if I will like the colour & pattern, once I have made my choice. That I will not get bored. I’m so used with white walls & have had it white – forever! You could say that it’s about time then, AND perhaps it is. But until I’ve made up my mind, it will do with nice & inspiring images.
