Heiberg & Cummings = Splendid!

There are so many interior designers that I admire and follow but for years I have had a soft spot for the very talented design group Heiberg & Cummings Design (hcd3) in NY. Their design work revolves around Scandinavian contemporary design with a focus on blending the old with the new. Mr. Heiberg is a native Scandinavian, just like myself, and it is easy to see that he is very loyal to his roots.  A wonderful example is this gorgeous beach retreat in the Hamptons.

If this is not relaxing for the soul – then I do not know what possibly could be!

One day (I have promised myself in my lovely dreams) I will team up with them so they can drive the design of our future kitchen… and dining room… and library and… I can’t wait to see them in action! For more of their portfolio go to: hcd3.

And look at some of their own furniture designs. Simply marvellous.

Art With Punched Butterflies

Last Christmas the Swedish School in Seattle, which I am part of, asked me to donate an art piece for their annual lottery. I can’t draw to save my life but I am pretty good when it comes to color and texture.

At Michael’s I found this great butterfly punch by Martha Stewart. I like it because the butterflies look more stylish than cute. Already armed with tons of good scrap booking paper, I happily started punching away.

At the frame store Aaron Brothers, I found this great deep frame (already equipped with a mat), which allowed me to play a little with the fluttery friends and raise them here and there.

I was so pleased with the outcome so I actually made another one that stays in the house!

Little Valentine’s

I am a big fan of the blog Decor8 which I find is so inspiring. Today they posted information about the most adorable Valentine’s project from yet another great blog Inchmark. I’m trying myself – tonight!!

Just cover small match boxes with beautiful paper and decorate to your heart’s content. Pack them with litte candies or stickers – and off to school!  I can see myself decorating boxes for Easter, Halloween, Christmas…. I love the idea that the boxes can be saved and reused. And the matches will come in handy during the next power outage!

Inspiration & Conversation Piece

I found this image in the trendy magazine Living Etc. What a great idea, to paint the drawers of an old  – not so loved – chest and give it new life and new style! I will, from now on, look at old chest of drawers with new eyes.  One day I will tackle this project myself!
