IKEA Livet Hemma Inspiration and a trick on how to achieve the looks

November 1, 2018


It is not the first time I turn to IKEA Livet Hemma for inspiration , in fact one of my most popular posts about Livet Hemma featuring what I think could be a full house, can be found here and the continuation of it here. I think the team of stylists and photographers the Swedish part of IKEA is putting on these small projects are brilliant, in the way they handle colours and combination of materials , that not only help see some of IKEA furniture in new light, but also they make you want to copy the whole set up. There is a a small trick to this process however that anyone can follow, and it’s not really hidden so everyone can take advantage of it. The clever thought behind is to combine IKEA products with either vintage or even high end brands. So feel free to use your vintage rug along with an IKEA sofa, dress it in Bemz covers, add a painting or a poster behind it, use those magazines on the sofa table as coasters, then add a high end lamp or a chair and there you have it. The formula is simple really, what makes however Livet Hemma special, s that the team provides inspiration for you and me, for free. It is one thing to say this is the formula, and another to start from scratch implementing it. But if you have a couple of stylings as inspiration to start , then it makes starting a project of your own quite manageable. Scroll to see a few photos I chose, that stand out to me from the collection of Livet Hemma, all from different posts, that I think make for good inspiration.

Ferm Living and Red Cross

October 31, 2018


Rarely I have the opportunity to post about a cause, and so today, this post is very special. Ferm Living has designed a high quality blanket, the Enfold blanket, to support the Danish Red Cross in their work of helping vulnerable families get through the winter.Ferm Living’s proceeds from the sales of this exclusive blanket , are donated to the Danish Red Cross in full who are then able to provide aid and care in parts of the world where living conditions are much harsher than what we are used to.

Enfold is made out of 100% wool melange , in a blue tone , with fringes on 2 sides. I will be getting one myself and I will get back to you on how it feels. I dont need another blanket, probably you dont either, and if you already support the Red Cross or any other charity you feel is helping out then you are already doing something to help out. But regardless of if you are or not, this is a good opportunity to give, without thinking too much about how, only why. It is getting cold out there, and everybody should at least have a blanket, and this is what the message of this post is about.

The money is donated to the general funds of Red Cross. The donation allows them to act if disaster strikes but also supports their preventive and development efforts.

Novembers Wishlist

October 30, 2018


This months wishlist only features items that I have wanted for a little while now and I cant wait to get them. Truly a list of “want to have asap” rather than “a girl can dream”, which is why I kept it short. These are my must haves (from the side of luxury) for this month :

:: 1.  Beauty || Anne Manns jewelry embodies a strong, feminine statement originating from the love of interaction between jewelry, clothes and their wearer. From her Pea collection, the Eila earpiece stands out as one of my favorites. Either in gold or silver, I honestly would love to have both.

:: 2.  Reading || Yes please. The new Cereal magazine is out, along with the famous Cereal city guides in 2018 edition. Dont miss any of those.

:: 3.  Shopping || I need a bag for winter, to carry my macbook when I need to for meetings or when working outside of the house, for travelling but also for just shopping in the city. The Lady bag from Mansur Gavriel is perfect and the price very reasonable.

:: 4.  Vanity || Well this is not necessary at all, but I just found out that my favorite scent from Diptyque is now launched as a solid perfume and I cannot resist it. Early Christmas present for myself?

:: 5.  For the house || Almost a work of art from the new collection of Ferm Living, the Alza bowls in marble. Black or white, my house needs them.

Enviable apartment in Gothenburg

October 26, 2018


As always I am getting inspiration from homes out for sale,but when I spotted this one at Stadshem I was quite taken aback with the similarities it bears with my previous apartment in Oslo (you can find photos here on a tour of my house) . From the placement of furniture, the shelves are the same only different color, the fireplace is at the same position, same windows, really the only major difference is that our kitchens and bedrooms are exchanged. However, this is how I would have renovated if I had stayed (it was up for sale, you can find the ad and more photos here), so this is so great to see, it is almost like I see what my own apartment would have looked like!  Either way, I would move in instantly in this apartment as well, and with the good competitive prices in Gothenburg it is really tempting!
