Perfect dining settings alfresco and indoors

It's Friiiiday - woohoo! Whether you're having a casual weekend at home or a get together with friends and family, here are three very different table settings, all lovely in their own way. I'll be taking inspiration from all the pretty scented jasmine and vines and the strings of light bulbs. Beautiful!

Imagine a party under the boughs of that tree by the beach?!

When it comes to the great outdoors and eating I have a very particular taste - as you can see from my alfresco board on Pinterest! However, if you're into the more contemporary style you'll love this outdoor lounge by Studiopepe and for cool roof top living check out this post (loving the apple green table).

If you're looking for outdoor furniture Nest have the most amazing collection of contemporary pieces. Or for garden furniture on a shoe string, the fab Roxö chairs in grey (as shown in the last three pics) from IKEA are a perfect choice.

For some fantastic inspiration on how to bring green indoors check out the home of florist Sarah Nolan. Or for simplicity, how about floating plants in glass, so beautiful!

It's going to be SUNNY here in Southern Sweden all weekend so I'll definitely be working on my (tiny) garden and sipping mint tea a chilled glass of Sancerre while my girls mix mud and water to make cakes :) How about you? 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Styling at it's best

If I was lucky enough to own my own brand one of the first things I'd do would be to hire a fantastic stylist and photographer to take some lifestlye images. Like these ones from the HK Living spring collection shot by Finnish photographer Paulina Arcklin. I mean, how great?!

Not sure where to start - the exposed brick wall painted white? The fab throw and rugs? The vintage bar stools? The wooden stool with the orange seat?!  What about you?

Happy Swedish national day! We're off to the beach :)

Wednesday DIY - hallway cloud

With the arrival of Summer (sort of) here in the North, little feet are going in and out of the front door all day long to collect scooters, tricycles, buckets and spades.....a doormat is therefore essential, but they're often so boring aren't they? I was so excited to come across this very cool cloud shaped DIY door mat by Shine Design. It's cool, cheap and quick to make! Genius! 

Shine Design with kind permission

Here's how to make it: buy a door mat like the Lynäs from IKEA. Find a cloud shape you would like to replicate and use a bowl to draw around to recreate the shape on the doormat. Cut out with a pair of scissors!

Something for your hallway perhaps?

PS I love hearing about DIY projects for the home, if you have any you would like to share please send me an e-mail at

Have a lovely day!
