Lovely Bedroom

I am obsessing with bedrooms right now – gearing up to (at some point) remake a couple in my own home. This image is from Domino Magazine . I love the colors – especially the gray headboards. So fresh, so relaxing. And how fun with the fabric in the ceiling!  The table “Shine” from Shop Shine Home is also smashing. I could so move our guests in to this room!

Hunting For The Perfect Sconces

A pair of sconces have been missing in my foyer for 3 years now. I have neither found anything I liked nor anything that would put me back a mere $1000. I am looking for something classy, modern and somewhat unique. Now all of sudden, when I have more or less gotten used to fumbling in the dark foyer, I have bumped into a number of good candidates. Ini, Mini, Miny, Moe….

No. 1 – Chaise Sconce from Ballard Designs, $159/each.

No. 2 – Coral Sconce from Lighting Universe, $95.31/each.

No. 3 – Georgetown Wall sconce, from Lighting Universe, $277.02/each


In my dreams…..

No. 4 –  Perpignan Sconce from Decorati, (call to request quote)

And when we are out of this ugly recession/depression – maybe, just maybe, I will be able to afford:

No. 5 – The Kiki Coral Sconces (Moth design) from Decorati, (call to request quote)

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!

Stainless Water Bottles

There are so many fun stainless water bottles on the market nowadays. And don’t we all need to stop buying those plastic water bottles that end up in landfills for generations to come (not to mention all the plastic chemicals that leak into the actual drinking water we think is so good for us)?

Stainless is the way to go.

I particularly like the designs from the San Francisco based company EarthLust.

At the fun online store  Kir De Vries, prices for these bottles range between $15.20 for a 13 oz bottle and $19.95 for a 32 oz bottle.

Adorable Pin Cushions

I have been eying these handmade, beautiful pin cushions for a while. If I had one, I would treasure it forever and hand it down to one of my girls! What lovely gifts they make.


I found them on Etsy at the store “The Daily PinCushion“. The prices range between $15 and $28.
