Friday mood

Wishing you all a great weekend with some Pinterest finds.

Let there be light

Pinterest inspiration mood on the bright side this morning.

Influences

SB 1 SB 3 SB 4Most mornings when being in Los Angeles I go for a run or a walk. Not as much for the exercise as for the love of looking at all the houses and gardens and all of their different looks and souls. As much as I love Scandinavian design and working as an interior stylist mostly featuring those influences, I´m sometimes a bit bored with the trends making all homes look almost the same (and before anyone says anything, I know I´m a part of creating those trends so it´s partly my fault too). The trend right now in Sweden is so beautiful, classic and with the perfect natural color tones in combination with beautiful wood and art pieces. And I love it. And I´m tired of it too…I´ve never been one of wanting just one thing in terms of decor and styling. I like mixing and it often starts with the love for one specific object and then creating a story from that specific piece.

Anyhow – the bedroom featured here I found on American lifestyle site The Effortless Chic and I think it very well captures what I in addition to Scandinavian style love too (along with several other things of course). It´s the warmth, the colors, the personal touch and the effortless cosiness. What I fell in love with at first sight was the beautiful vintage rug that seems to have angled corners. It´s nice with a little variation, right?

Kitchen thinking

nk 1 nk 2 nk 3 nk 4 nk 5I want to do something about our kitchen. It´s a Poggenpohl kitchen with Gaggenau stove, micro etc (from when moving in). Without wanting to do be a live add for those specific brands I have to say, well done! With sustainability in mind I can´t really just throw our kitchen out as it´s still very well functioning but seeing kitchens and cooperations that my blog colleagues do or several other kitchens with more details of my taste, I´m really up for setting dreams to reality. Major inspiration here from Sundling Kickén, with photo by Osman Tahir . Very similar to my kitchen dream pins since way back. Sure this kind of kitchen is a peaking trend right now, but it was there the whole time & I personally never got tired of it and probably never will…But.. ps. The actual choice is far from done….Ds.
