Around Christmas, I love to shop around online. Finding cool bits and pieces that you’ll not find at your average store. On top of that, I love to support upcoming shops and shop directly if possible. This year I still need to find a few more presents for our family members, so I’m still on the lookout for that perfect gift. I turned to Etsy to see if I could find something cool and different for the home. Here are some of the things I spotted.
#1 George & Willy wall mounted paper roller
#2 Handcrafted boy or girl desk lamp – these are pretty cool right?
#3 Sliding Barn door closet hardware
#4 Wooden vases for your home
#5 Indoor wood planter – this one I really like
#6 Little wooden design spot “Dodrogo”
#7 Pretty cool letter display
#8 “Danquen” handmade wooden design floor lamp
#9 Black and brown faux leather throw pillow
#10 Cool 3D moon lamp – my kids got one each, and I would love one myself
We’re redecorating our dining room these days. We’re trying to create a cozy spot for the whole family to enjoy. A lot of waiting and patience is needed, which I’m not good at by the way. I’m still trying to decide which coffee table to buy, but I think I’ve found a winner. But we’ve decided on a new lounge chair. My husband and I have picked out a A Lounge Chair from Hay. Here’s where the waiting kicks in again. The new chair will arrive in about 8 weeks time.
Right now I’m browsing Instagram and Pinterest for even more inspiration. I’ve also got a dining spot to redecorate, but right now my main focus is the sofa spot, and how to make that as cozy as possible. I’ve found the beautiful Twin 35 or Twin 42 coffee table in cool grey from ByLassen, which I hope my husband will like. I’m also looking to add a new lamp and some coziness to the spot. Here’s a look at my current mood board/wishlist.

4. About A Lounge Chair from Hay
5. Dot Cushion from Hay
6. Moon Lamp from ByNord
7. Twin 42 from ByLassen
I know I’m a bit early (if you ask my husband), but I really wanted to make a wishlist – it’s been so long. And the I thought, Mother’s Day is coming up – and it is the perfect excuse. My family and I will be spending the day out in the woods with some friends, but hopefully we’ll have time for a nice breakfast or just a slow morning in bed with books and newspapers.

It’s Monday again. The weekend went by so fast. Friday night the whole family went to the X-Factor concert here in Aalborg. My daughter had her picture taken with Jógvan and was sooo excited. It was pretty cute. Before the concert we also bought the very first school bag for my little guy. He has had the bag with him wherever he went all weekend.
Saturday we bought new soccer goals for the garden, and the kids (and parents – while getting some much needed work done in the garden as well) played out there the whole day. Sunday some of our friends came by for a game of soccer and coffee and cake – what a wonderful way to end an amazing weekend.
We also bought a few items from Ikea this weekend, which I’ll show you in another post. But it was the start of yet another bedroom transformation. I’ll finally get my own girly corner in there and I’m making a wishlist and will share it with you guys soon. Just need to add a few more items. But as you might have guessed, I’ll be adding a bit of dusty pink in there and a few green plants.
For more blush moments do visit my board on Pinterest. There you’ll also find lots of inspiration, if you want to add a bit of blush to your own home.
This will be all for me right now. Have a fantastic Monday and take care.
Browsing Fantastic Frank’s website this morning I couldn’t help but save a few pictures for inspiration. I’m drawn to many details in this beautiful Stockholm home. Just take a look at the beautiful prints on the wall, the objects neatly displayed on the shelves, the cozy looking bedroom and the fresh herbs and the tiles in the kitchen. And most of all, I love the mix of old and new.

… and if you’re into cool design, you’ll love these solutions as well. I’m really inspired by these solutions – and it’s just the kind of inspiration I need right now. I want to make a few changes in my home this winter – and I might go for the little house solution shown here either as a bed or a small desk space.
