Hi friends. Here are some things that makes me pulse race extra fast!
1. Pretty chairs with dark chocolate brown/cognac colored leather upholstery. I hope this will be the year when a few will move into my home. I think brown chairs are sexier than black!
2. A glass cabinet for my old books. Oh, how I lust for one. I would have so much fun with it. It would be like my own play house!
3. EXTRA over-sized lamps (we are talking giant size). Just a single one. I think they add unexpected drama and fun to a room. The lamp becomes art.
4. Now look closely at all the images – what do they all have in common? Light floors. In hopefully a month or two, our master bedroom will get a major makeover. (This will my big project of the year, folks!). The first thing I want are light colored hardwood floors, Swedish style. I don’t know what that will do to the the resale value of the house though, because Americans seem to appreciate darker floors more. Regardless, I can’t wait to have a light, fresh and airy bedroom where even the dust looks good in the white corners! To all of you “non-Swedes”- would you dare to invest in really light gray-white/raw plank floors?
This Swedish vignette gives me the “goosies”. Absolutely stunning and peaceful. I am saving up for a Swedish Baroque mirror like that. (And the floors….).
There. A few things on my mind. Thank you for letting me share.
Warm hugs to you all.
