Beautiful Mirror

Ok friends, I have a crush on this mirror. Isn’t it stunning? So unique. Simple and yet it makes a statement. The mirror is 69 cm in height (about 27 inches), so it is not too wimpy, which I like.

The company behind the mirror is BTC by Design from England. The Leafy Mirror in Oyster Gray is made of metal and is, according to BTC, Swedish inspired. No wonder I was immediately attracted to it!

Have a wonderful weekend blog friends from all corners of the world! You are the best!

Dandelion Lamp

How cool is this Dandelion pendant from the Dutch design company OOMS! Of all the Dandelion lamps I have seen so far – and there are many on the market right now – I like this one the best. I have great childhood memories from Sweden sitting on the small hill in our backyard blowing the fluff from dandelion steams while listening to birds chirping. That is summer too me!

Birds In The Guest Room

For you who have been following my blog you know that I am gearing up to revamp our guest bed room. All I know right now is that it is going to be white, fresh and crisp. The accent colors are still up in the air. But this new, lovely wall paper “Emma” by talented Emma Von Brömssen for Swedish Boråstapeter will likely be featured in a small area in the room. Maybe as an extended headboard.  I love the peacocks!

Royal Lights From Mekavi

Check out these lovely lights from the Danish lighting company Mekavi. A little different, a little unexpected. The pendants are called “Hidden Royalty”. I can see these in both traditional and contemporary rooms. Mix people!

Wall sconces “Catharina” and “Cornelis” – illuminated royal portraits.

Gold Crowns For Little Princesses

I mentioned in one of my posts that I was going to hit the Gift Shop at the Royal Palace Stockholm basically as soon as I landed in Sweden. And I only had one purchase in mind. I should have known my readers better! I immediately got a couple of comments and a few e-mails with you guessing – and you guessing right about my mission.

Yes, it was the little crown charm I was after! It is modeled after the Royal Crown for Sweden made for the coronation of Erik XIV in 1561. The one I picked is made of 18K gold. They also offer one in silver as well as one in gold over silver.

I find these well made charms to be so adorable and I can’t wait to give them to my young daughters for their upcoming birthdays, with the hope that they will always think of Sweden and its wonderful history with great love and appreciation.
