A Norwegian home on Christmas eve

Tuesday, 6 December 2016

You can always rely on Norwegian blogger Nina Holst of Stylizimo for beautiful interior inspiration. And when it comes to Christmas Eve it's absolutely no different! Her lovely home high up on a hill in Oslo is decorated with simple wreaths, fresh white linen and of course a magnificent tree laden with 'pepperkaka'  (Scandinavian ginger biscuits!). What a lovely setting for Christmas eve?

Could you imagine spending Christmas here?

Get the look: By lassen candleholder in brass, wishbone chairs, beautiful white linen tablecloth and napkins. These white porcelain stars and baubles are lovely.

Other Christmas link love:

Twinkling fairy lights on a big mirror.

Simple DIY dried orange garland.

One little Christmas tree. And one even smaller tree!

Something to share: cranberry brie pull apart bread - mmmmmm!

Have a wonderful day - I'm off to celebrate my birthday! Eeeeeeee! My sister Cas and little niece have even come all the way over from London as a surprise! 

PS Last day to enter the wonderful watch give-away - hurry! 

A calm Brownstone to brighten up your Monday!

Monday, 5 December 2016

Why, hello! There's been quite a few Christmas posts here on MSH over the past few days (including a watch give-away - still time to enter hurry!), DIY inspiration, a Nordic gift guide and even a few festive touches from my own home! So today I thought I'd give us all a breather and go for something non-Christmassy! A beautiful Brooklyn brownstone dating back to 1910 to be precise. Home to Jeff Madalena, co-founder of clothing brand Oak and Jason Gnewikow, a former musician and graphic designer and founder of Athletics agency- you could say creativity is in their blood! The pair has transformed their four storey home into a magnificent, pared-back monochrome space in which to unwind from their hectic daily lives. Think statement pieces, quirky art and a lovely roaring fire.....

Wow! There's so much breathing space it makes me feel calm and relaxed just looking at it (not bad for a Monday!). Loving the large plants and soft textiles too - which give the home a lovely soft touch.

A few items I know and love: sitting room- Serge Mouille floor lamp, sheepskin throws, recreate white side cabinets like these using the bestå series from IKEA (like the top stylists!) - and pep up with SuperfrontDining room- Salt chairs, bedroom - white linen bedding.

If anyone can shed some light on those fab ceiling and wall lights, I'd be so happy!

And a little link love to brighten up the start of the week:

Three other brownstones I love - including one with a mid-century touch, one with striking contrasts and a cool monochrome space. Got to love Brooklyn!
