Yesterday was auction day for a sofa that I fell head over heels in love with a week ago. I decided to buy it no matter what, even if we have absolutely no space to put an extra sofa in the house. I would just have had to find a way to work it out. But in the end, just minutes away from closing time, someone raised the bid so much so that I had to give up. I guess you can’t pay whatever amount for passion when you have nowhere to put it….but today I can´t stop thinking about it. A dark grey wall behind it….Am I exaggerating or is it not absolutely wonderful?
Found the lovely Tumblr feed of Silver-Blonde this morning and wanted to share some pics with you. I think it is important to try to get all photo credits right when making a post but it is not always easy as pictures travel very fast and the origin of the pic often get lost on the way. Some photographers & stylists do not appreciate their work being spread and I completely respect and appreciate that so if you would see something here on my blog that you don´t want to be featured, please contact me and I will take it off straight away. Or – if I have missed any credits, please fill me in. I purely share what inspires me and take no credits for work (except my own), it is not an attempt to steal but a way of expressing admiration and inspiration. For example I found one of my own pics in the Silver Blonde feed with no credits at all for me as a stylist or Kristofer Johnsson as photographer. Of course I would love for there to be credits in it as it is a good way of marketing our work but I do see how credits can get lost on the way. In the long run, I think it´s a good way to get featured anyhow and as soon as the picture is on my webpage it is a reality that it can spread. With that said, this is a very big discussion. I hope my blog can stay the way it is, a collection of beautiful things that inspire me and hopefully also you, and that when, and if someone do not want to be a part of it, feel free to contact me. Thank you xx
The Silver Blonde feed is also a great example of how pictures from Instagram have really become a true inspiration for people – all of the pics above are from different instagram accounts (except for no 6) .

I love this idea from Goop (the newsletter of Gwyneth Paltrow) – that instead of having a book club, or in addition to – set up a cookbook club with your friends. You always need to eat right? And you always want to spend quality time with your friends. You often do but maybe not in this way where you would share ideas, cook together and discuss the food making itself. And what better season to start than this one being able to sit outside late & warm nights. Maybe someone will be in charge of setting the table too as that is half the treat for many of us. So, pick an inspirational cookbook on your mind at the moment, choose some recipes that make your heart beat faster, invite friends and start cooking together. I know I will.
