A few photos from my bedroom some days ago. Love the light coming in from the window, snow outside makes it really beautiful.
Have a relaxing and cozy weekend!
I have enjoyed following Annaleena Leino Karlsson on Instagram for a long time and from the moment she told about building the new house I knew that it will be a stunner. And I didn’t have to disappoint – today she posted first photos of her new home on her blog and of course I had to share those. Scandinavian minimalism in its perfection! Now I’m impatiently waiting the see the other rooms in this house! Sneak peeks can be seen on her Instagram feed.

These minimalist dark wooden kitchen cabinets create beautiful contrast in this otherwise white kitchen. Large windows let in plenty of daylight which is reflected on white walls and light wooden floor so that the dark cabinetry doesn’t feel too heavy in this interior.

And it seems from the photos that there are little lovely containers to hang on your String side panels soon coming out – perfect for storing little knick knacks if you happen to have a String shelf in your kitchen, workspace or bathroom!
A new collection from danish House Doctor is now online and this year it’s called Authentic Notes. The emphasis of this collection is on outdoors and how to make it an extension of our homes. Be it spontaneous gatherings on the terrace, quality time in the garden or enjoying dinner under the stars…
The collection embraces materials and textures with an authentic look and uses mostly light and airy hues to enhance natural light.
The whole catalogue can be found here.

Beautiful living room styling using different shades of grey and natural materials like wood, sea grass and cork. The center piece in this room is new IKEA sofa NORSBORG, but you can find alo many items from their SINNERLIG collection, like the rug, table lamp, cushion covers and cork coffee table.

Happy new week! We are having some really cold weather here – after warm and black Christmas last week almost every morning greeted us with temperatures below -20 degrees. Today temperatures are finally little higher, but quite strong wind makes being outside still not very pleasant. On the days like this I wish our apartment had a fireplace or stove like this beautiful monochrome Swedish apartment featured on today’s post. Styled by talented Sarah Widman and Elin Kicken this apartment decorated in monochrome and natural materials has this vibe I like about minimalist Scandinavian homes.

NORR11 is a young Scandinavian design and lifestyle brand offering timeless high quality furniture pieces and home accessories. Founded in 2011 as a German-Danish start up their furniture and lamps are clearly characterized by modern Scandinavian design, but at the same time include classical Bauhaus elements. By contrast, the shapes and materials of NORR11 accessories have Asian roots and as such add some color and dynamics to their collection. The mix of 3 different styles makes NORR11 products really unique.

Christmas is just around the corner. Tree is decorated and presents are wrapped. There’s also a tiny-tiny Christmas feeling rising its head inside me – mostly thanks to my older boy who is already old enough to decorate Christmas tree, bake gingerbreads and wait for Christmas Eve and all the presents he is to get then :)
The most valuable gift you can give to your loved ones is your time. Keeping that in mind I will sign off for holidays and give all my attention to my family. They deserve it and I deserve it :)
I wish you all magical Christmas time and see you again in the beginning of 2016! Take time for your loved ones and make some beautiful memories – not for Instagram or Facebook, but just for yourself! xxx
