It seems that colorful accent walls are becoming more popular this spring, even in otherwise monochrome Scandinavian homes. These examples here are from two of the blogs I regularly follow, Stylizimo and Designlykke. Nina and Henriette have both chosen lovely shades of blue (fresh green blue or more subtle greyish blue) to bring some color to their homes. On the last four pictures actually the same color (“Lofoten”)  is used although it looks quite different – great example of how different lightning can change the final outcome, so it may not be an easy task to find the perfect shade for your home!

Today I’m happy to show you the new look of my blog! I had long thought about it and finally I did it!

I don’t know how about you, but I was quite tired of my old design and wanted something more minimalist, light and fresh to better reflect my aesthetics. First I wanted to do the whole redesign myself, but I had to be realistic and admit that I don’t have time for that… Fortunately, I got a lovely theme from Blogmilk and after playing a little bit with CSS I can proudly present it today :) There are still minor things to do (like creating some structure of post categories… ), but it’s quite ready now!

So what do you think? I’d really really like to know!

Welcome weekend!

March 28, 2014


I’m so thankful that it’s Friday and we have two relaxing days ahead!

P.S If you get an error ‘in maintenance mode’ when trying to visit the blog it’s because I’m updating the blog design a little bit. I hope to be ready for the next week, but we’ll see how it goes :)

Have a great weekend!

Kuu pendant and great bedroom styling

Black Kuu pendant in living room

Simple and lovely new pendant from One Nordic Furniture Company. It’s name Kuu means Moon in Estonian and there is definitely some similarities between this lamp and a beautiful full moon! Available also in white.

This is exactly how I feel at the moment! (Our little man is teething. I think it pretty much says it all for those who have kids…)
