A new find for my home!

Saturday, 21 January 2017

I made an exciting discovery this week. I've been planning a new nook in my sitting room and looking for something fab to break up the white walls. My search led me to these beautiful handmade mobiles. Sold through Lappalainen, each mobile is handmade to order in the couple's studio in an old warehouse building in Hanau near Frankfurt, Germany. The designs include brass dot, black brass, copper copper and mobile brass (my favourite) as well as plenty of other versions. What a find?! Oh and they ship worldwide too - perfect!

I can't wait to receive it in the post!

Could you imagine having one of these in your home?

You can see more inspiration / mobiles in action over on Instagram and in their wonderful Etsy shop.

Happy weekend!

PS this Pinterest board has been my main source of inspiration - I knew all that 'nook' and 'daybed' pinning would come in handy one day!


A soothing Swedish space that ticks every box

Friday, 20 January 2017

Happy Friday! Yay! The sun's come out here in Malmö just for the occasion (either that or the weather elves read Wednesday's post and got the fear!! Ha!). This week we've been rocking around the world (virtually speaking of course)- with beautiful home tours in New Zealand, The Netherlands, and California, I hope you've enjoyed the ride! But today I really felt it was time to come home (it'd be kinda rude not to when the sun's come out specially, right?!). In my mind, this lovely family home in Gothenburg ticks absolutely every box - including beautiful high ceilings, large windows, a dining area bathed in light, a lovely work space, plenty of storage and two beautiful bedrooms! Oh and there's also the soothing neutral tones and two masonry ovens to cosy up to. Can I move in please?!

So lovely, don't you think?

Want to be my room mate?!

Get the look from this Gothenburg home: sitting room - Stocksund sofa from IKEA, House Doctor wall light, Hay tray table, macrame plant hanger. dining area - white bistro chairs, this glass bell jar is similar. Bedroom - wall light, white linen bedding. Children's room - wigwam / tee pee, Beni ourain rug, EOS pendant by VITA Copenhagen.

I'm so looking forward to the next couple of days! Last weekend I was away in Kitzbühel which was so wonderful (look out for the post about Bernd Gruber shortly!), so I'm looking forward to rocking about at home this weekend with my family. Have you got any fun plans?

Just in case you have a little spare time and fancy a whirl around the web, here are a few links I've loved this week:

Because ever record player deserves its own little spot.

The power of the black dresser (time to get the paint brush out?!).

A plant loving interior (look out for the long table!). Love!!

A glimpse of Sweden's breathtaking coastline (*shoulder's drop*).

Evidence that all you need in life is a white sofa and sheer curtains!

The cutest, smallest outdoor space I've seen.

Any favourites from these links? I do love the dresser, think I might need to make some changes at home! Don't tell the man.....

Have a wonderful weekend and see you Monday!
