Malmö Modern

Hej hooo! A few weeks ago I was in shop heaven when I visited Malmö Modern which sells amazing scandinavian designer items and a few fab international pieces too including a selection from the very wonderful Scottish designer Donna Wilson. The good news is they've just opened an online shop too (sorry...Sweden only). As you'd expect, the owners have a very cool home which I thought I'd share with you.  A cream bun for the person who can spy the most designer items?!!

It's a public holiday here today so we're heading off sailing for the day. It's a little choppy but hopefully that'll just add to the fun....! Have a lovely day. x

10 Monday Mix and match

Sometimes renovating my home feels like a complicated puzzle and some pieces simply won't fit. I've been scratching my head over the dining table and chairs for ages. Should they be a set of Eames? Wegner? IKEA? A simple rough wooden bench? And then my friend Sofia came over at the weekend and suggested a complete mix. YEEEESSSS!! It's so much easier to find a vintage bargain of just one piece too. Here's my inspiration.....I can't wait to get started!

I found all of these lovely pictures on Pinterest. And I feel incredibly guilty that just for the next couple of hours I'm going to have to credit them through my 'Fine Dining' board. But as soon as I find a quiet moment (I am at home with my two little girls this morning who are 3 and 1!) I promise to come back and credit each photo. 

See you shortly and Happy Monday!

a love story ends

I have to share a touching story.  On Tuesday, Granddaddy passed
away, somewhat unexpectedly. And after she was told by her best friend that
her husband had died, Granny took her last breath passing away just hours
after Granddaddy.  They were both ill, in separate specialized facilities.  
Granny had brutally battled cancer for six years and within the last year,
Granddaddy swiftly declined in health from Alzheimer's. Granny loved
Granddaddy so much that she just couldn't leave him.   Now may they live
happily ever after together in heaven.

Pastels and white in Norway

Hej hej! And happy Friday! Today it's a very happy Friday for me simply because the sun is shining and spring is here. It's the simple things! And this home from the beautiful Norwegian blog Fryd og Design is the perfect home for a day like today. The pastels against the white backdrop are simply stunning.

Children's bedrooms, dutch style.

Sorry to do this to you folks, but I have just found the most incredible online shop! Now, I am not much of a linguist, trust me I tried 'google translate' but it didn't work....but I think this shop is based out of Amsterdam, Holland?! Any hooo if you have a child, neice, friend with a child, live down the road from a child, you'll love this shop Onszelf. Just in case you're not already sold, here are a few pics from the website...

FAAAB! The spotted duvet fabric from the Bambi collection is already on my little girls beds (in my mind) and I'm just planning where to add all the wallpaper and posters. Isn't this just really one of the coolest kids decor spots ever?!

House love...

This former foundry held on to its spirit by having 

the walls and ceilings kept exactly as they were.....

just beautiful

The home of a Norwegian ceramic designer

I am just a little lost for words (not like me!). But homes like this Norwegian one of ceramic designer Silje Aune Eriksen featured in the Norwegian Elle Decoration is the reason I love Scandinavian interior style so much. This home is simply FAB! I love the colour combination of greys, white, neon, black and light wood and of course the beautiful ceramics!  

To see more pictures of Silje's home, (yes there's more!) check out her blog. Some of the ceramics you see such as the milk jugs and cup cake holders are Silje's own design - you can buy the ceramics she has deisgned over at Hvit! Warning! Dangerous online shop alert!
