A Danish Home With Easter Touches


Looking to get into the easter spirit? Mette Norrild has filled her 1970s house on the Danish island of Fyn with pastel hues, spring flowers (including Forsythia, cherry blossom and Magnolia) and pretty Easter touches. Oh, and don't miss the quirky details like artisan mugs, colourful glassware and twisted candles - they add such a fun touch! Here are a few snapshots to feel inspired by this weekend: 

So many pretty ideas!

Decorative mugs have become such a big thing in Denmark lately that I feel tour requires a roundup! 

From top left: Royal Copenhagen, Studio Palu (twisty handle), Krøllet Keramik (with cherries, sweets etc), Les Gens Heureux (pointed handle / splashes). 

It's made me want to start decorating my home this weekend, how about you? 

If you're curious about where any of the items are from, Mette's great at tagging her photos on instagram

And for some great easter decorating ideas take a look at: 


I hope this post has put you in the mood for the easter holidays! My girls break up tomorrow so we're looking forward to decorating the house a little. Maybe the rain / snow / everything the swedish weather gods wants to throw at us will clear up at some point too! 

Do you decorate your home for Easter? If so, I'd love to hear about your decorating traditions! 

Have a great weekend!

A Warm Home Which Nails the In-Between Season Vibe!

Hi campers! How was your weekend? Ready for a home tour with some inspiring details? This lovely space in Heidelberg, Germany belongs to Danilo and Paolo. The duo are passionate about the home, flowers and travel - all of which come together in this harmonious living space. I particularly love how they have mastered that 'between season vibe' when the light returns, the spring flowers have bloomed, and yet there's still a bite in the air.  Keep a look out for kilim rugs, spring flowers, candles and blankets, a beautiful bathroom cabinet and a ceiling height palm. Ready to feel inspired? 

This home has such a lovely feeling. The spring flowers, blankets and candles certainly help - a perfect between season combination! 

Tip on plants: mature greenery like this palm can be expensive. Keep a look out for similar plants on budget-friendly second-hand sites such as gumtree and eBay - here in Sweden businesses are often selling off plants like these when they update their office). 

Another tip: Annie at We Are Here Now sells lovely vintage kilim rugs.

Is there anything that caught your eye?

BTW thank you so much for your positive feedback on my 2022 organisation series with Elfa on Friday. I'm excited too - just feeling a little overwhelmed by tackling my attic! Gaaah! 

Have a great start to the week!

10 Ways To Bring Spring Hygge To Your Home, Anna Kvarnström Style!

Someone once told me that there are two seasons in Sweden: winter and July. I know it was said in jest, but sometimes I do wonder! In honour of a chilly spring day, I thought I'd share some beautiful pictures from the cosy home of Anna Kvarnström in central Örebro, a few hours West of Stockholm. Simply decorated, her home has a wonderful sense of calm thanks to the warm neutral tones and layers of texture. On sunny spring days, the balcony doors are thrown open to welcome in the fresh air - while blankets lie in wait. If you're looking to enjoy a little spring hygge Swedish style, here are ten lovely ideas to feel inspired by!  

1. A simple linen tablecloth like this striped one adds immediate warmth to a space as well as a sense of occasion to an everyday tea break! This striped tablecloth* is similar. 

2. Cream coloured cushions add a wonderful softness to hard chairs - and mean you can enjoy sitting around the table for way longer! This spring it's all about the texture with lush, tactile, raised patterns (also seen in rugs - I love the ones by Cappelen Dimyr). This cushion is from H&M Home

3. Vintage tea plates bring an immediate sense of nostalgia to teatime - and these ones are so pretty!

4. It may be spring - but it's still a bit nippy in the air (at least in Scandinavia!), light coloured linen blankets are ideal for the changing season. I love this one*

5. Linen curtains* are idea for inviting the spring sunshine in, yet adding warmth and sound dampening to a space. Plus, they look so pretty swaying in the breeze. 

6. Pluck delicate spring flowers on your way home and dot them around your home in little vases. 

7. Sheepskins are often considered a winter accessory - however, the treatable quality means they work equally well in spring. 

8. Candles are a given - why not invest in scented candles with subtle spring fragrances. 

9. White linen bedding* looks really fresh in spring. Add cosy cushions and a blanket to ensure you stay toasty until the balmy summer weather arrives! 


10. The most wonderful thing about spring is finally being able to throw open the windows and doors - and maybe even enjoying a glass of rosé in the sunshine! Just add spring blooms - and maybe a blanket!

What a lovely home! Anna has such a natural, effortless sense of style and it feels both fresh and cosy at the same time - a perfect balance! See more of her beautiful living space and summer house over at @annakvarnstrom

Lilac and dusty pale pink for a calm home

Tjeeeena! Hope you had a lovely weekend? My little three year old and I visited Hem & Villa, a house and home exhibition in Malmö. We had a great time, she because she got a sweet at every stand, me because I love spending the day with my gal AND I got some home inspiration at the same time! Peeerfect. This calm Monday morning I'm taking inspiration from some of these beautiful calm, serene spaces. Pastels are the shades du jour, and I couldn't welcome them more this spring!

What do you reckon? Are you a pastels person or more of a bold and brights bad boy?! Or perhaps it's monochrome all the way? Me, I'm loving the pastels and white look.
