It's Friday! Yay! This weekend I'm taking the girls out to the forest to enjoy a little of the Southern Sweden countryside. It's almost customery to take 'korv med bröd' (hotdogs) and bbq them alfresco. Wish me luck with that last bit...! Since I'm cruising towards a very Swedish weekend I thought I'd go all Scandinavian today with this beautiful home of Danish stylist Rikke Graff Juel which I found via the wonderful Scandinavian design blog La Maison d'Anna G.
Living here in Sweden I really wanted to show P and our little girls a little about where I come from so a real british seaside holiday is in order! So this summer we're going 'glamping' (glamorous camping) by England's beautiful SouthWest coast. I'm thinking whimsical days in wellies, chintzy tea sets, bunting, vintage caravans, 50's radios and buckets and spades. Can't wait!
Now, there's nothing I love more than a white home. I live in Scandinavia after all. And this Danish home is the eptiome of white lovely-ness. I especially love the wooden floors. We have recently white washed our dark oak floors and our house has become so light and airy because of it. Next step - beautiful mid century furniture like in this home....
There's something about Australia this week...but here's yet another beautiful home. This time by interior designers Gardener & Markswho love to decorate quirky spaces with a vintage industrial edge. I love everything about this guest house, if i was a guest here I might never leave.....
You know when you see something and you get just a tinsy bit well,....jealous?! Well, when I spotted this Melbourne home of florist, Poppy on Keke I couldn't help getting a tad envious. Firstly I love Poppy's laid back, bohemian interior style (most of all her fab kitchen), then that she is a florist and spends her days working with beautiful plants (look at the way she has used flowers to brighten up her home) and finally she is an incredible chef and cooks a mean 'Love Fern Paella'! The funny thing is my home looks nothing like Poppy's, I am blonde and I am no mean cook. I did buy daffodils yesterday though...could that be a start?!
Thank you Kirra, for inspiring me with your wonderful blog and for allowing me to publish these pics. Oh and, for the wonderful Love Fern Paella recipe!
Hej heeeej and happy Friday! Any great plans for the weekend? If you're house hunting, perhaps this lovely place in Södermalm, Stockholm could be worth a visit. I love the way they have made maximum use of the 73 m square. Naturally, I love the all white look with fantastic splashes of colour. But I also love the way the owner has created different spaces within one room, such as a work space all along one side of the room, a reading corner, and a day bed by the 'kakelugn' fire.
