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.
NORR11 furniture and home accessories are available exclusively online and shipping is free of charge! For inspiration visit their website or one of their showrooms.
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
Latest jobs from Kristofer Johnsson for Residence magazine are both so beautiful that instead of a Christmas themed post I had planned for today I want to share those with you. The first apartment (which is styled by Lotta Agaton) is a home of Nadja Mini Helminen. Its all white base is a great backdrop for darker furniture pieces and shows beautifully all the architectural elements of this apartment. The second interior is decorated in darker and muted hues and it looks like a cozy nest for cold winter months. It’s a good example that Scandinavian style doesn’t always have to be only black and white. The second apartment was styled by Alexandra Ogonowski.
Finally I have started to decorate for Christmas. I was waiting for the first snow to get that right spirit for Christmas preparations, but I can’t wait any longer… For me decorating our home for Christmas means bringing some green branches inside, adding some extra candles and of course Christmas tree, which will be brought home some days before Christmas. Baking gingerbread cookies, listening to Christmas carols and wrapping those carefully chosen presents for the dearest are definitely also in my Christmas list.
Danish interior brand Hübsch released their new collection Tendencies 2016 a few days ago and I found many things I like. Their ceramics is my special favorite – simple, practical and beautiful pieces easy to mix together like you can see from the photos above.
I really love these slow weekend mornings when you don’t have to go anywhere and have plenty of time to enjoy morning coffee and time together with family. Last night and a night after that have been really windy here where I live and many households are now without electricity. So it can be considered a little luxury to wake up and have electricity to make breakfast and fresh coffee.
Weekend mornings are perfect time to catch up some reading which I haven’t had time for during busy weeks. This time it was a long-awaited The Kinfolk Home book. Nowadays, when we spend so much time online and often read something from iPad or phone it is a real pleasure to open a book, flip pages and smell that special smell only new books have. I spent some really inspiring moments with this book and a cup of coffee while the rain was pouring outside… Perfect start for a good day!
Again some interior inspiration from a Swedish real estate page Stadshem. This two room apartment is kept monochrome with the rustic wooden floors adding texture and warmth. The highlight of the space is definitely an over-sized watercolor painting hanging on the wall behind the sofa – something completely different than traditional picture walls!
Love this subtle and natural Christmas mood from Broste Copenhagen.
In early October I planned to start decorating for Christmas earlier this year, but it’s already almost the first advent and I don’t have nothing planned yet. The only thing I know is that I want to take it easy and make only a few subtle decorations and definitely bring a little tree inside when getting closer to Christmas.
I thought to start this post with sending my deepest condolence to all of those out there who were affected by the horrible things happened in Paris last Friday, but then I started to think how to say that and realized that instead of the phrase “to all of those out there who were affected” I should use “to all lovely people out there” because we are all affected, just some of us much more closely than others… These are the moments that remind us the fragility of life and importance of living in the moment we have. Importance of showing love and caring each time we have a chance, because only that way we can balance evilness and hate that tries to raise its head over peace and love…
As for the photos above, these are from a two room apartment sale on Swedish Entrance Makleri site. I was taken by the beautiful monochrome art wall in the living room where photos, art prints and a big painting are mixed together to create a focal point in the room.
I try to credit the source of the photos I use, but if you notice I have made a mistake or you are not happy with me using your photo feel free to let me know.
