Kitchen tiles chosen

So after a lot of ifs and buts we have finally chosen which kitchen tiles to go with and we have ordered the grey tiles. I’m hoping that the finished result will look a little bit like these photos! A bit country life with the different sizes of the tiles and the concrete look of…

Interior Design Mood Board

A good interior design tip when planning to renovate a home is to create mood boards for each room you are renovating or redecorating. That way you can save your favourite photos in one place and visualise how you want the room to look, it is also easier to see everything on one board and…

Garden Furniture

Today was the first time we’ve got to use our garden furniture which we bought last year! It’s so nice being able to sit outside and eat when the weather is nice it really makes such a big difference. And for the occasion I laid the table with my new placemats from the Swedish designer Andrea…

Kitchen Tiles

One of the projects for our coming renovation is changing our tiles in the kitchen and conservatory and this weekend we went around looked for some tiles. As we want to keep the traditional and ‘country home’ look in our house we knew we wanted to keep matt tiles and not go for shiny ones,…

Bank Holiday Weekend

Bank holiday weekend and the weather is amazing, finally spring is here! The plans for this weekend is to try and get some stuff ordered for the bathroom and the kitchen and of course to enjoy long breakfasts with my new favourite avocado on toast with pomegranate.

Last night’s dinner

Rae Feather Bag

I’m ready for my next beach holiday! This week I went and picked up my Rae Feather bag from Harvey Nichols which I ordered a couple of weeks ago, can’t wait for summer now so I get to use it.

What a difference some curtains make

Yesterday I managed to convince my boyfriend that it was time to take a well overdue trip to Ikea. I just needed some candles and other small things but I also managed to find some new curtains for my bedroom which really fit the room perfectly! I always thought curtains was such a hard thing…

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

My home is ready for Christmas and so am I! All the gifts are bought and I am ready to go to Finland and then home to Sweden. A little disappointed that there won’t be any snow.. but I guess as long as it’s cosy inside it doesn’t really matter!  

Christmas wreath workshop

Last week my friend brought me to a Christmas wreath workshop at an interior design shop in Islington called Aria where we got to make our own Christmas wreaths. Even though mine started out as a bit of a disaster I think it turned out really nicely in the end! This will definitely have to…

Halloween Decorations

Halloween is coming up and as this is one of my favourite holidays I’ve started decorating the house a bit with halloween decorations even though I know it’s almost three weeks away.. But the supermarkets here seem to agree with me that this is not early at all! I will wait a bit with buying…
