Norm Architects' Christmas

These photos from Norm Architects also show that a Christmas in soft color schemes can be truly beautiful. These photos are actually behind the scenes shots from a Christmas table that they decorated for Danish magazine Bo Bedre.

Nordic winter

I love this home, decorated for the holidays! A soft color scheme works even if it's Christmas.

Grey everywhere

Grey truly is THE color this season. And now Rörstrand present their classic dinnerware Swedish Grace in a new grey color called sten (stone). I love grey, so I don't mind that it has become such a buzz around the color. More grey to the people!

Poster Le Boeuf Bourguignon

I bought a cheap clipboard from Ikea a few weeks ago. Until today, I didn't know where I'd put it or what to put in it. Today I decided that it would look great on the worktop in the kitchen. I love the beef chart below, and it would look amazing in my clipboard, but it's a bit too expensive and since I love graphic design, I made my own poster from a recipe for Boeuf Bourguignon. I haven't printed it yet, but I'm already super happy with the results!

Dining area

I haven't told you yet, but my boyfriend and bought an apartment in Stockholm, which we are moving into in June next year. I'm really looking forward to it, but I feel a bit sad leaving the beautiful southern part of Sweden. Anyway, I've started looking at some new furniture, and of course I dream of beautiful design furniture. But I think it's possible to get the same feeling with less expensive furniture as well. These are my inspiration photos for our dining area, and although I wish I could afford Wegner's wishbone chair, I think these chairs from Ilva have a similar feel, without feeling like a copy. The chairs to the right reminds a bit of the popular Eames chairs, which I also long for, but with a more humane price. However, I’m not sure if I find these a bit too close to the original design, for me to feel excited. What do you think?

Inspiring styling

Almost every day, I check through the inspiration images on Hemnet to see if there are any new and inspiring apartments for sale. Not that I'm about to buy a new flat, but because I love to see how they've styled them. My favorite real estate agent in Sweden is Fantastic Frank. Their styling is always inspiring and innovative, and I have shown you some of their apartments before, for example here. Today I found two apartments for sale by Fantastic Frank, both equally inspiring. Which is your favorite?
