summer + planting

An old wooden box with small compartments
terracotta pots, bottles of glass
the olive tree packed in a piece of linen

a  beautiful guestpost at Ikea's livethemma
by tantjohanna made my rainy grey day...  green!

Have a great week ...




I was so inspired by the whites in the magazines.... 
love the light, calmness and perfect serenity....

Have a wonderful weekend.!



I must admit....
I was a little jealous when I read that Pethra of pethra etc
 found "her's"  in someones basement... what a find!
I little while ago I told you about my love for the leather brown Egg chair
and today I share my love for the series 7 chair...

Have a great friday
and for my Sedish friends... Have a happy Midsommar!

the Series 7 Chair was designed by Arne Jacobsen. The Series 7 Chair is a design for Fritz Hansen in 1955 
and is by far the most popular chair in the history of the Danish manufacturer,and perhaps even throughout history chairs. 


a snapshot...

Made this snapshot the other day...
I just love black, white, softtones
and my tape... 

Have a beautiful day!


so real....

beautiful thoughts...
beautiful pictures...
beautiful inspiration...

makes me smile! 

Have a wonderful day...


new favourite....

I just love stools and tabourets...

I already have a little collection....  
but this stool of the creature collective by Supafrank
formed by designers Katie Steel and Vicki Turner,
really could be my new favourite...  
Awesome don't you think?

The few simple components can be constructed using just one tool
 – a mallet – to make up a stool, a hook, a light and a light pull!

To wannahave...

Have  a great Monday!


father's day...

breakfast in bed
little self-made presents by the children to surprise

It seems the awards are travelling in a little circle these days... 

This week I was very surprised and honoured that Femke of Femkeido picked me up 
as her choice for the Liebster blog award.
Femke is a dutch Interior designer and I am following her great 
inspiring blog for a little while... I really loved her impressions 
while she was visiting the Salone Internazionale in Milan.

And today I am  happy and surprised again :-)
I received a "blog con estilo award" from sweet creative and inspiring lottilou
I really love Lottilou's blog and her beautiful paintings!

I will try to choose some beautiful blogs later... 
As there are so many good and inspiring bloggers
it's really so difficult to pick only a few...  

Thank you so much Lottilou and Femkeido for given me the awards...
Bring them a visit and you'll really enjoy yourself on their inspiring blogs!
