My Morning Cozy Corner – A Good Day Starts Here!

August 19, 2014


I love a cozy corner. No matter the time of the day I will always retreat there with a cup of warm chocolate and something to read whether that’s a book, a magazine or my iPad. 

When it’s winter, in the morning, I love creating a cozy nook by the sofa by layering sheepskins on the warm wooden floor, lighting a candle or two and laying there softly while drinking my tea. In Norway mornings are very dark and I find the candle light exceptionally soothing. I always try to place myself also near a basket of extra pillows and soft blankets just in case. 

I love the IKEA challenge from NIB this month because it represents my line of thinking when it comes to decorating and styling. You don’t have to buy the most expensive or designers furniture in order to make yourself an interior where you can start and end your day in a stylish way. You only need some creativity and stay true to your heart, it will always guide you to the right direction! 

When it comes to me, I only need a cozy sheepskin, a mug of hot chocolate, candles and soft pillows and blankets on the floor to start my day! Well, I might migrate on my couch with my laptop if needed but that’s why I choose to create my soft cozy spot next to it in the first place 😉

What is your favorite spot in the mornings? What do you do to create one?

A year in Instagram

August 15, 2014


It’s been a year since I started posting my photos on Instagram and I could have never thought that I would reach more than 16.000 followers within this period of time. I want to thank everyone who is following me, commenting and liking my photos. I have been so lucky to have met so many amazing people as well that I wouldn’t have otherwise either through comments or just by searching for new accounts to follow. Instagram is very vibrant community and you can use it as much or as little as you please. While a lot of people are opposed to it I find it provides for the perfect escape for few minutes during my day. After all, my intention when I created it was to follow people rather than to post myself. 

Fun fact,I have had my account for about 3 years before I started posting 🙂

If you don’t have a smart phone to follow me or other accounts you want, you can easily keep track directly from my Instagram web page here.

Thank you for a wonderful year in Instagram, here’s to many more!

Have a great weekend everyone!

Painting Day, First Coat.

August 14, 2014


We finally started painting our small spare bedroom. I am beyond thrilled that we are soon converting it into a walk in closet. It’s perfect since it’s next door to our own while the second (and much larger) spare (soon to be quest) bedroom is on the other side. The first coat of white is up and it already looks great! I love the morning light that comes through and the fact that this side of the room almost never sees the sun. I will never have to worry about direct sunlight hitting the clothes!

How beautiful is the morning light in this room? The grey casting shadows are just lovely, I can hardly wait for this room to be finished! All the photos today are completely unedited other than re sizing since I didn’t think there was anything I could have done to make it look better than it was in reality. 

Have a great day!
