It has been a crazy week. It’s almost Christmas and when I pick up the kids from school today they’ll start their much needed Christmas break.
Time for baking, time for watching movies, get together with friends and family and it’s time for looking back at the year, which will soon come to an end. I feel lucky that I get to be around the people I love and care for and I hope that you can do the same.
Today, I want to leave you with a few beautiful pictures from a Swedish home. Nothing Christmassy about them at all, but they inspired me.
Yesterday, an email from Nomess landed in my inbox about their Gravity Rack, which is a pretty cool wardrobe solution. It’s super easy to hang. Just take a look at the video at the end of this post.
I kind of like the idea that it is easy to take down, if you need more space. It’s super simple, yet very beautiful. The bended metal tube is held in its position only by a cord string – this string is fixed to the wall by two metal hooks. The Gravity Rack was designed by Thomas Schnur and the maximum weight is 20 kg.
When it’s time to redo our hallway, I’ll keep this one in mind.
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.

Today, I’ve got some Christmas inspiration for you. I’m getting my dose of Christmas right now, but more about that in a later post – if you’re curious, check out Instagram. Today, I’m just going to leave you with some wonderful Christmas ideas. As you can see, I’m very much a black/white, minimalistic Christmas freak. I love a simple Christmas decor, containing snow and black, grey, glitter and a bit of green.
We’re redecorating the dining room (again). It seems like we’ll never finish decorating this home. However, this change is for the better, I can feel it already. Prior to the change, we didn’t use the room much. We ate dinner and used the dining room table for creative projects. That was pretty much it. We only had one comfy chair in the room, so whoever got there first would be the lucky one. So we decided to make some changes. Right now we’re waiting for a new sofa to arrive, and we’ve moved the dining room table to another spot in the room.
While we get some minor things sorted out – like changing the light cords and getting rid of some books – I’ve started to collect pictures of beautiful interior details, which I’ll use for inspiration, when putting the final touch to the new room. Hopefully, we”ll be ready for Christmas Eve.
