MOSS HOTEL, ICELAND

10.4.17




I've been fortunate enough to visit the Blue Lagoon many, many times and the experience doesn't get any less surreal or beautiful. Well... from the autumn of this year you will be able to stay here, on the water. Okay, seriously, that will be an experience worth putting on the bucket list.

The Moss Hotel, Iceland. I'm there.

THE WORLDS MOST BEAUTIFUL FLOORS

14.3.17

I've been dreaming about having these floors for many years now. Our new (old) house is on the the horizon - so my dream is getting closer.  Upstairs? Downstairs? Both floors? Not sure - I need to live in it for a while first. Even if it does mean living with 70's decor for a while.

MÓI (TOUCH OF NATURE)

9.3.17





I'd like to extend a huge welcome to mói as my latest sponsor. They're an Icelandic kids fashion brand who's inspiration comes from all things nature. Their products are responsible, ethical and organic (goes without saying from such a fantastic brand), their pieces mix and match beautifully and can be used by boys and girls.

Some words from mói:

"Coming form the land of ice and fire, mói proudly launches their spring summer collection for 2017. Known for their raven prints, mói now approaches their core ethnic relationship with nature by embracing the colours of the Icelandic wilderness"

I've been using mói clothes for Felix for around a year now (so way before this collaboration) and let me tell you they are absolutely fantastic. The quality is amazing (seriously you can wash a million times and they won't lose their colour or shape - at all!) and I love the designs. I am genuinely excited that they have come onboard here as a sponsor.

Shop the delicious collection here.

WHITE APARTMENT IN SWEDEN





I never tire of the old Swedish apartments with pale boards and white walls. They are specifically what first inspired me back in the day when I started blogging and despite the new styles and darker colours, there is still something very special about this quintessential Swedish look.

COLOUR OR NO COLOUR?

6.3.17

So I've always been a monochrome / natural tones kinda gal, but lately I think I my tastes are changing. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm not going to start raving about bright colours, BUT I do love some of these beautiful muted colours that are around right now. I'm totally into my nudes, browns, greens and blues....

I guess it's inevitable. Fashion and styles change and also our opinions (on everything) change and / or become more confident as we get older.  It's a good thing. What are your thoughts on colour?

ZIGZAG AND ZEBRA

1.3.17

I’d like to introduce you to a lovely new sponsor of mine. Zigzag and Zebra are the go-to store for all things fun, beautiful and creative for kids. They feature tons of Scandi brands and offer beautiful textile toys as well as classic wooden stuff.

Something to really look out for is the lovely prints (see below - they have a huge collection) and please do visit their baby gift section (some shown above); you will never need to go anywhere else for that perfect present.


NINKA + PANDA BY OYOY

New in the store. Ninka and Panda money banks. We love.

SWEET KIDS ROOMS

So Felix's room is very beautiful - it's simple, graphic, with lots of contrasting materials. It's not too fairytale-like though and I think I may need to embrace that  a bit more :) When we move, we may consider softening it a bit. Or maybe if we ever have a little girl (unlikely), I can go to town with the dusky pinks, tutus and pom poms.

ISLINGTON APARTMENT

6.2.17

Came across this great apartment over here this morning. It's in Islington (one of my favourite neighbourhoods in London) and let's face it you don't get much square meterage for your money here. But what it lacks in space is more than compensated with design and great space planning. I love the plywood box positioned right in the middle of the space, which provides a kitchen, stairs and landing for the upstairs. Genius.

SNOW | WINTER LIGHT

2.2.17

An absolute winter favourite at the shop. We sell so many of these candles and once you have one, it's easy to understand why. It's so nice to make the most of this last few weeks of winter 

"Snow. Natures treasured light during the long, dark months of the Scandinavian winter. A fresh, crisp and icily dry scent infused with a hint of winter berries and frozen timber wood"

AT HOME WITH DANIELLA WITTE IN SKÅNE

31.1.17

A beautiful home for you all this afternoon. It's the home of Daniella Witte, photographer and interior stylist extraordinaire :) She teamed together with local interior stylist Emma Persson Lagaberg and they created this. Pretty great don't you think?

TABLE TOP

30.1.17

Good morning and happy Monday! I know that many people hate Mondays. I actually love Mondays, It's my organising day.  I like to plan for the week ahead. I'll set a few goals (which normally includes eating healthily which last until Wednesday or Thursday when I'll give in to a cake or brunch out or similar) I'll fill and organise my diary. I'll clean the apartment inside out. I'll change the bedlinen, I'll book my exercise classes, I'll get new flowers, I'll wash about five loads of washing, I'll spend the next few hours at my desk catching up on emails and admin and then I'll have a relaxing evening with my two men. Life doesn't get much better than that.

Some lovely table-top still-life shots from a favourite blog, with thanks.

GOTHENBERG APARTMENT

26.1.17




This apartment is for sale in one of Gothenberg's emerging neighbourhoods Majorna.  I mean this apartment couldn't be more Scandi if it tried. I love the details and it's quite nice to post something so quintessentially Swedish.

THE BIRTH POSTER

20.1.17

I've just ordered one of these for Felix and I can't wait to see it. The Stockholm based Birth Poster company have created this amazing concept whereby you can have an illustration drawn of your baby at scale 1:1 (which is  obviously actual size.) They offer the artwork in 6 different drawings, whether it be a line drawing or a rough sketch and there are two positions that you can choose from.  You then have all your baby's information at the bottom of the drawing; you can choose the measurement/weight units and you can also choose the language.  I absolutely love the concept, it's just beautiful and what a special thing; to have a reminder of how little that baby was when he/she was born. You can create the poster online, so you can see exactly how it will look before it goes on your wall. Just amazing.

OYOY RUG / PLAY MAT

17.1.17


Just arriving in store now.  The world rug by OYOY.  We sold so many before they even arrived!  For each rug sold, a donation is made to WWF, specifically to preserve the habitat of Polar Bears. I love everything about this product. Seriously.

PRIME | NORM ARCHITECTS

12.1.17

I love the lines of the new Prime series by Norm Architects. I am a fan of the old traditional tubs, however I would probably always go for a modern one. This design ticks both boxes for me.

Some words on the design from Norm: "Prime includes two bathtubs and a sink design that is a contemporary interpretation of the antique tubs. The soft outer shape of all the items is inspired by how the pressure of water shapes an elastic material like e.g. a filled water balloon".

FERM LIVING KIDS AW '16

10.1.17






It may be a little late in the day to show these AW '16 shots from Ferm, but I thought they were so nice that I wanted to post them. They actually have a really fresh new year feel to them don't you think?

So how is your new year going? Are you keeping up with your goals and intentions? Or maybe you're not and that's cool :) All is great here. Life is as busy as always, we're the middle of buying a house so stress levels may be higher than normal!  But, we've settled into a comfortable routine now we're back in the UK and it's actually really nice. Is there such a thing as too much travelling and moving around? Yes! Home is my favourite place in the world (wherever home may be).
