white {and red carpet}

I haven't really been inspired for a while, just been working and ... well, doing other stuff. But this weekend has been such a nice and quiet one, and I feel like I'd love to start preparing for the spring {although it's snowing again here in Stockholm...} But, the good thing is that it's the snow that is inspiring me at the moment. I need white! I just finished removing my wallpapers, and the next thing is to get to the hardware store to buy paint. Everything is going to be white! I will also pay Ikea a visit since they have pretty and cheap textiles for my soon to be white home.

However, tonight is not about homes but about red carpets. I'm anxious to see The Academy Awards red carpet, which starts right now. It's going to be a long but fantastic night {and a lot of coffee...}

craft corner

I'm still out there for looking for the perfect craft corner. Heather has one I think.

These pretty gift wraps are made by Nicole, very pretty!

blue crush

Not that I'm actually feeling blue, but I do have a blue crush. First time in my life!

This week has been tough, since I couldn't make it to the Stockholm Furniture Fair. I catched such a horrible cold in London {as you do in London} so I've just been feeling sorry for myself the whole week... not really, but not much fun going on. {Besides the company, it's been a bliss...}

But today I got a new Elle Interior! Hungrily flipping through the pages... I'm so into walls and patterns, and been liking this fantastic graphic designer for a while. Now I just cannot get my eyes of the wallspapers she has created for Your wallpaper. Look at Lisa Bengtsson's work! I love I love I love!! This one with vintage angels is my favourite.

Lisa is such a cool woman, thumbs up for her!

ridiculously beautiful stuff

Oh, I need to make a mental note that if I ever marry I will need to remember this source of inspiration... {well, I don't really need to get married, just throw a dinner party}. Anyhow, look at these fabulous pictures. Thank you Åsa from Designdrömmar for sharing!

london rocks!

This is funny, two pictures of the same city... but they don't look the same do they?
However, I love London! Just arrived home from a great weekend of parties, friends, beautiful London houses, cozy coffee shops, cool bars... and now 30 years old! My friends organised a fantastic party for me and 40 other, a great way of leaving my 20's behind.
The trip didn't turn out to be cheap though... Our flight back home on monday was cancelled, so we had to book new tickets, and we finally arrived home 2 days later. But we got more time in London, visited Tate, shopped, had coffees, walked around. Unfortunately my camera broke down so no new pictures :(
So, now I'm into all English pretty designs...
