A little linen loving

Saturday, 25 March 2017

Linen. Where would be without this beautiful fabric? Made from the fibers of the flax plant, not only does it look beautiful just the way it is (no iron necessary - oh yes!), it's also highly absorbent and valued for it's exceptional coolness and fresh feel in warm weather. Lately we've been seeing it all across the home in form of curtains, bed linen, table cloths, towels, aprons, lovely soft, muted, washed out tones. One of my favourite go to stores is the small independent Etsy store notPERFECTLINEN.  Founded by a very small family of creative people, notPERFECTLINEN focuses on creating simple linen pieces for people who appreciate natural things for their home and about their person, a relaxed look and long lasting garments. I recently bought these linen curtains (below and also seen here) and was so impressed by the quality and way they've been made to measure. Had to share their shop with you! I'm so going back for more!

And other items I have my eye on in the range:

Pefectly imperfect  - love it!

In order of appearance: made to measure white linen curtains / drapes, set of two bluish grey pillow covers,  large linen tote, natural linen curtains.

I think I might just pick up a pair of these too - perfect for the Swedish spring! Do you have your eye on anything?
Have a wonderful weekend!

A fab Danish home with a Moroccan twist

Friday, 24 March 2017

Godmorgon! It's Friday! Woop! I'm always super slow on Fridays, how about you?! I think I'm a secret 'four day weeker' except my mind hasn't told my body yet so I'm still at my laptop. Either that or I'm dreaming about the prospect of chilling out here over the next couple of days (can't wait!). But thankfully things feel super easy today since this little beauty of a Danish home dropped into my mailbox last night. Do you remember Julie Wittrup Pladsbjerg and her lovely flat in the Danish city of Aalborg (lest we forget that purple bike!)? Julie (who works for a Moroccan interior store), her boyfriend Mads and daughter Vanilla recently moved from the 5th floor to the ground floor in the same apartment block. Their new home has been furnished with a wonderful blend of designer items, vintage finds and Moroccan wares, or as Julie puts it: 'green, Scandinavian with a twist of Moroccan in my own, cosy, warm and colourful style'. Let's take a tour...

What a fab home - the apartment itself has beautiful bones and I love Julie's mix and match style.
How about you?

Get the look: dining area - Tom Dixon copper round pendant, Panton chair, Tripp Trapp children's chair, source a lovely boucherouite rug here and kilim cushions here, these string lights are similar. sitting room - source fashion prints and posters here, string pocket shelves.

In case you missed it, you can take a peek at Julie's previous apartment here and here and keep up to date with her latest home projects here.

If you fancy dipping into a whole host of other beautiful Danish spaces today, you could always check out the Danish home archive (oh yes!). My top tips - don't miss the dreamy home of a best selling author, an inviting space with vintage touches, and an eclectic apartment with attitude. Oh I do love Danish style!

Have a wonderful weekend!

PS I'll be dropping in tomorrow with a little pure linen inspiration.

PPS Or if it's drink trolleys (bar carts) you're after, you might want to hop on over to The Washington Post where I contributed to a splurge or save feature! So fun! Hope you like my selection.
