Christmas inspiration

lottaheader 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.

On my Christmas wishlist

While I’m busy buying gifts for the whole family and friends, I decided to pick out a few things from my own wishlist to show you.

Check out my Pinterest board right here for more inspiration and to see my ongoing wishlist. I update it from time to time during the year, and then I pick out some of the gifts I’ve collected and email the links to friends and family. Somehow, they are not as impressed by the whole Pinterest thing as me 😉 Hopefully, one day they’ll see how practical it really is.

Get your Kubus 4 ready for Advent

Are you ready for the first Sunday of Advent yet? Have you made your Advent wreath? If not, hurry up and get your Kubus 4 candle holder and let’s get started. I’ve selected a few examples of how to decorate your ByLassen candle holder.

I’ll show you a few tips on what to use this year. So don’t worry, you’ll make in time to sit back and enjoy the day with your family too. Check out what I did with my own Kubus 4 for Advent here on Instagram.

Paper goods from Blacklist studio

I’ve recently discovered the design studio Blacklist. The design studio is based in Sydney, Australia. It was founded in 2008 by husband and wife Nathan and Jaynie Johnson. Blacklist produces a range of art prints, stationery and paper goods, which I’ll show you below. I’ve picked out a few things from the collection, which I would love to have in my own home.

A grey wall and so much more…

SFD99BDC6197ED7404A8925200E7FFC450E I’m not sure where to start. This weekend I saw this home in Arsenalsgatan on Alvhem, and my eyes kept wandering to the next cool detail in this amazing home. The interior in this studio flat is so well picked out. To name a few of things that I love, I would point out the beautiful grey wall, the fantastic dark wooden floor (no more white floor for me that’s for sure), the prints on the wall and the cool workspace. But I could go on and on and on. But I’ll just leave it up to you to take it all in.

Enjoy <3

The Advent calendar – Part Two

A few days ago I showed you some pretty cool DIY Advent Calendars in this post. Today, I want to show you a few more. While picking out which ones to show you here on Espresso Moments, I regretted not sticking to my original plan and buy a little something for each day before Christmas Eve. But done is done, and I’ll never talk my husband into doing it anyway. But next year, I’ll have a lot of inspiration to pick from.

I hope you’ve picked one to make for your kids – if so please share it with me – either in a comment or on Instagram (I’m @espressomoments there). I would love to see what you’ve done this year.

Have a lovely day <3
