This house is all about space & air, closely attached to living with nature. I´m not always about modern style and minimalism but this is what I crave at the moment. Just the feeling of being able to breathe without distractions and…reality.
Creating a moodboard for a project that I hope will still happen in these difficult times…Many of us are affected by what is happening in the world right now. Let´s stay creative to keep our minds sane and hope that keep on trying is the only way to go xx
Many of us are stuck at home during these times and what else to do than making the best of it? At least for now there is no shortage of food so I´m trying out new recipes and setting the dinner table at little extra each night to make it special. Those beautiful linen cloths made by hand by my grandmother that I so rarely use because I´m afraid to stain them are coming out! And since Spring is already here there are plenty of snowdrops in the garden that are coming inside in small vases everywhere. A little sprinkle to a heavy situation is (if we can and are well) what we need.

I´ve been inspired by Athena Calderone for some time now and her summerhouse in Amagansett is no exception. You have probably seen her NY kitchen a million times as it is one of the most featured inspirational pictures ever I would guess. In addition to great interior taste she is also making lots of delicious food presented in the most perfect way. Athena´s first book ”Cook Beautiful” is now followed by recently released ”Live Beautiful”, both on my wishlist. You can read more about Athena and her work on her lifestyle site EyeSwoon.
It´s also fun to see how taste really changes and develops by comparing what the house looked like before the renovation. You can see what it looked like before here. And if you have missed her NY apartment with that amazing kitchen mentioned above, here you go.
