After spending some weeks in the north of sweden with my family while working on intense projects I went 
directly to the north of portugal to celebrate christmas with my husband and our portuguese family! It has been wonderful days but now I am enjoying to spend the rest of the christmas holiday at home, relaxing, watching 
nice movies and tv-series, reading, eating candy and once in a while get out for a walk with our dog...

Merry Christmas and a happy new year! Time for christmas holiday! This year I am looking forward to spend lazy 
days at home with my husband and my dog, watching movies, reading books, eating candy and cuddling in bed...
See you again in 2017!

Pictures found on pinterest.


A wish list for christmas...

Love the new simple rings from vrai and doro. The ring can be engraved with a letter for a personal touch, but 
I prefer it plain and the gold color is my favorite.

It is the last week of november and with the snow falling down outside I guess it is about time to get into the christmas mood. These beautiful images styled by lotta agaton and photographed by pia ulin for blossa inspires 
and makes me long for glögg, ginger bread and cosy days at home.

During this season when the outside has faded and lost its colorful palette it is tempting to add more green to 
the inside instead and these pictures from my stylist and friend Brechtje Troost inspires. See more from her

Lately I have been walking around the streets of Lisbon searching for inspiring color combinations. The city 
with its beautiful buildings has fantastic color palettes and here is a taste of what I have found so far...

I have a tradition of buying cut flowers once a week and every once in a while I update the home with some 
new house plants. It is the easiest way to give some new life and freshen up the home, without spending a lot 
of money and using a lot of time. I try to bring in some green into every room, even the kitchen and the bath-
room since these rooms need some softness as a contrast to the hard materials. The mix of different shapes, 
sizes and heights are important and the variation possibilities are endless. The plants can be grouped together  
or mixed with other decoration objects or as a break in the book case.
My collection of vases is mainly vintage findings from different places around the world except some pots and 
the big vase in the living room table which is actually a jar from the ikea collection sinnerlig. Here I always 
place a big bunch of flowers to give some life to the white living room. The hanging pots in the kitchen are
great solution since there were no shelves where I could place the plants, these are from ikea. The vase on the
wall in the living room is from my own collection, since I recently started making ceramic objects.

The best of all is that plants and flowers cleans the air and improves the inside environment.
