Today, I want to share a black and white home with you, before I’m off to watch both my kids play soccer. It’s the first tournament this winter season, and it’s usually quite fun to watch.
I can feel the Christmas spirit in the air. I’ve bought wrapping paper at Søstrene Grene, and some of the Advent gifts for the kids. I’m not quite finished, because I still need to find one last gift for each of them. I’ve got a few post planned about what to get for your kids, and hopefully I’ll have them ready soon.
It’s time for a cup of coffee and a croissant before the rest of the family wakes up.
Have a lovely weekend <3
Lately, I’ve come across some beautiful black and white photographs, which I’m seriously considering above our sofa.
The first picture I’ve found on Coco Lapine’s shop. It’s called Black Beach. It’s a beautiful picture of a rock formation touched by the ocean on the black beach, photographed in Iceland. The second is also from her shop, and it’s called Snowy Tree, which was photographed in Munich. The third picture Decordots’ shop. It’s called Rainy Day, and it’s a photo of raindrops on a window.
I’m thinking about buying them all, and then change the photographs on the wall from time to time. The Snowy Tree would be perfect this time of year.

I kind of like the idea of a scent diffuser – I don’t know if it’s the minimal design, the names or simply a combination.
I’ve been avoiding scented candles for years, because I got a headache, when I had to walk past them in the different stores. The smell was simply too much for me.
However, I think I might be able to enjoy the scent diffusers in my home. I’m leaning towards Dag, Nat, Hygge, Koto or Ro. I might also be tempted to buy the small combi pack with the mini scented candles Hygge, Koto, Ro just to try it out. They’ve madet to my Christmas wishlist this year, which I’ll show you in a few posts time. Until then, I wish you a lovely Monday, and I hope your week will be nice and calm.

We only buy advent presents for the kids in our home, primarily because my husband isn’t too pleased with the idea in the first place. He thinks the kids get enough presents in December already. But I love each Sunday, because I think it’s special waking up to a small present, and then play with it afterwards. I think it’s an okay compromise, and I would rather buy four bigger presents than 24 small ones for each day.
Even though, my husband isn’t into it at all, I’ve still got a long list of things I would have bought for him – had he been into it. I hope the gifts I’ve picked out will inspire you – and hopefully your man will be happy, when he opens it on a Sunday before Christmas.
Are you ready for four Sundays of advent?

It’s Friday and I’m off to a dance party at the school. The calendar is packed with meetings and activities these weeks. I hardly have any time to finish some of the interior projects, which we’ve started. Tomorrow, I’m going to the Finders Keepers fair here in Aalborg – I hope to return with a lot of inspiration and maybe a thing or two.
One of the things which inspired me lately is a bunkbed project by Susanna Vento. What a beauty – and it’s so practical. I love the storage space in each bunk. You can see many others photos of the project on Instagram #projectbunkbed – it’s almost a step by step guide.
Winter reading is one of my absolute favourite activities. Snuggling up in the sofa with a good book and a warm cup of coffee – that’s magical – just like the print says. I’m reading books more than I’ve done in years – and I’m loving it. I look forward to all the books I’m going to read this autumn and winter. I’ve got everything from fiction, cookbooks and magazines on my list right now.
My top 5 winter reads
A Little Life – Hanya Yanagihara – I’m reading it right now – and loving every page of it
Green Kitchen Smoothies – David Frenkiel & Luise Vindahl – I’ll make some delicious smoothies from this book all winter
After You – Jojo Moyes – It’s about time I find out what Lou’s been up to after Will died
Kinfolk vol 21 – a great source of inspiration
Cereal City Guide – Copenhagen – lovely city lovely guide book
