Swedish ceramicist's living space

Iiiiit's Friday - yay! For those of you stressing about Christmas shopping I'm taking a day off Christmas today so that you can mentally transport yourself to this tranquil black, white and grey space and be calm! This beautiful open planning living space is the home of Swedish ceramicist Kajsa Cramer photographed by Frida Ramstedt from Trendenser.

LOVE the rug, lighting, furniture (especially the Eames side chair, if you're tempted you can get15% off along with everything else in the shop (fab Vitra gifts anyone?!) with the code MYSCAN. Yay!) and most of all the cute little doggy of course! What about you?

I don't usually post on the weekend but this Sunday there'll be a very exciting guest post to celebrate the 2nd day of advent so pop back if you feel like a little DIY inspiration. And don't forget that Sunday is the last day to enter my big Christmas give-away to win a totally fab Danish design cutlery set worth 325 euros too!

As always I'll be feeding my usual Facebook and Pinterest addiction this weekend so see you there! Have a really lovely weekend all!

Pretty Christmas: moss and boxwood

There's nothing like bringing in a little boxwood and moss into the home at Christmas. Last night I had a play around with some wire and moss and realised just how tricky some of the beautiful decorations you see on Pinterest can be, despite looking so simple! By the time I finished there was more moss on the table and floor than om my wreath! So I have borrowed some DIY tips from  Martha Stewart Living which have been expertly executed by Ashley Ann in the two images below. How pretty?

This year I love the more simple wreaths, nothing fancy, just a little greenery and a pretty white candle.

I'm going to dash off quickly today as it's actually my birthday :) No one is more excited than my four year old who thinks there's going to be a full on party when she gets back from nursery, so I have to quickly rustle up a cake and some friends, what a lovely excuse! :)

Have a lovely day.

My home: kitchen star

Hello! Well can you believe it, it's still snowing?! And my Mum called me from London this morning all excited as it's snowing there too! ('What's all the fuss about?' I hear you guys North of South Sweden asking?! haha!). Today I thought I'd share a couple of pics from my kitchen. I have a bit of a black, white, light grey and wood theme going on. And of course a star for a touch of Christmas.



My Scandinavian Home
The mat on the floor is a traditional Swedish Tasmatta  (rag rug) which are handwoven on a loom using strips of recycled cloth.  Believe it or not, Swedish friends, I bought these two rag rugs in Jysk! I love that they have strips of silver cloth mixed in with the weave.

The tray is the Bricka Plattan by Barbro Tryberg.

Have a lovely day!

Dreaming of a white Christmas

The world outside my window is covered with a thick blanket of snow and even as I write the snow is falling silently from the sky,  a real Swedish winter wonderland! To celebrate, here's a beautiful home festooned with white Christmas decorations styled by Sarah Ellison for Real Living. Even the bathroom has a touch of festive spirit which. So for those of you who don't have snow, this is the perfect way to bring a touch of 'white Christmas' indoors!

My home: Christmas tree

I hope you had a lovely weekend! Here in Sweden we were in for a treat - SNOW! According to tradition my little family and I went out to a sustainable forest and chopped down our own tree which we celebrated with glögg and hot chocolate (it was minus 5 after all BRRRRR!). Here are a few pictures of our shiny new Christmas tree!
