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.

Slow weekend mornings

The Kinfolk home book

cozy moments with book and coffee
 

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!

Christmas inspiration from Broste Copenhagen

Christmas inspiration from Broste Copenhagen

 

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.

Natural simplicity in a new apartment near Stockholm

This new 3 room apartment in a small town near Stockholm is a beautiful example of natural and simple Scandinavian interior design. It’s decorated in calm tones: white and grey base with blue and green details. Some oak wood and rattan pieces together with linen and woolen textiles are timeless and add texture and warmth. Love the combination of white simple kitchen cabinets, modern Normann Copenhagen Bell pendant and timeless Gervasoni oak wood Gray chairs. The overall look feels cozy and welcoming, which is sometimes hard to achieve in a new built apartment.

Cosy vibes in a small Scandinavian style apartment

This beautiful small (37 sqm) apartment found from Stadshem is styled in cosy Scandinavian style and despite the small space available everything needed for comfortable living has perfectly found its place: living room corner, bedroom, dining corner and storage. Lovely mix of different textiles and natural materials gives the apartment cosy feeling and since the colour palette is kept muted and neutral everything looks really nice and balanced together.

For more inspiration of how to decorate small spaces take a look here, here and here.

IKEA hack | VITTSJÖ table

I love good IKEA hacks and this is certainly one of them! Two sets of IKEA VITTSJÖ nesting tables have turned into a minimalist storage shelf for living room and two bedside tables for bedroom. To change the look tables glass panel tops have been changes for tile ones – easy and affordable way to add some trendy marble or concrete looking materials into your space. New table tops are attached to place with adhesive pads that come with VITTSJÖ tables. Really easy!
