Let there be light

It darkens so fast here in Australia. Even though it is spring now & the evening light stays longer as we draw towards the summer. Now, there are some ways to make it nice & bright during the dark period of the year. I’ve become fond of light-strings. Don’t ask me where it came from – I just found myself on the search after those in shops & stores. It has to be the right model & size. I discovered loads of different design & variations. Many are rather large & clumpy while others are nicely done. But no ones looks like the one I have in mind.

I’ll have to look further when I have more time on hand. Until then, there’s quite a lot to be inspired by – if not in stores then at least online.

Green zones

I’m not an outdoors person or particularly interested in nature. I know it sounds horrible but it’s probably not the worst though. What’s worse is that my two sons are alike. My husband claims to be an active outdoors person. But that’s not entirely true, even if the rest of us in the family isn’t making a big deal of it. We are just wondering when he activates his great hobby – since he always spends his free time with us. We are on the go & active with one or the other but it’s more city emphasised, however. Although I have to admit, that I lately have felt an urge to get out into the forest, take some walks & breathe fresh air. Hear & behold! I hope it has something to do with development, of some kind.

Rug (s) candy

l’ve been looking for rugs to our livingroom but also to our sons rooms too. It’s not that easy really. There’s a lot of rugs out there, amongst to choose between. Great variety but still. One moment I decide to go for an oriental style & thereafter to choose a more modern, simple & one-colored rug. I will leave it for a while. We have currently white rugs & they are looking a bit tired & worn now. My son went to Sweden for a couple of weeks & brought back a black & white three meter long runner in plastic. Pappelinas famous design. I’m thinking about the right place for it – probably the hallway. That’s a good start 🙂

Daily inspiration, piles,

I’ve just gone through piles of books & magazines to try to clear some of my collections. I have not the heart to throw any of this although much of the magazines are old. It’s simply not possible. That’s why this picture fit as well as today’s image love.

Daily inspiration, romantic,

I love this picture. It is not close to my style but there is something in the expression & the whole that makes it appealing. Maybe it’s the color combination of white & turquoise, pink & a little green, plus serving table in wood. Cosy & a little romantic, I think.
