BARE ESSENTIALS IN NORTH VANCOUVER

15.9.16





There is something wonderfully calming about this space. The lovely pale colours and natural materials really appeal. Also its in Vancouver - supposedly one of the most beautiful cities in the world to live... I've never been, but it's certainly on my list :)

OLD FARM HOUSE, IBIZA

5.9.16




 That gorgeous island, just off the coast of Spain. A favourite place for me which holds many memories as we can hop over there from my in laws house who love on the west coast of Spain. There is definitely more to Ibiza that partying and this amazing residence showcases the typical understated, bohemian beauty that lies just beneath the glitz.

I see so many inspiring things on Instagram and thought it would be fun to share a snap shot of some of my favourite Instagramers. I LOVE this one (ha ha, most of my favourites involve food) - Alison-Wu is a food prop and wardrobe stylist from Oregon.  Alison I love your work :)

AT HOME WITH EMMANUEL DE BAYSER

24.8.16




I spotted this stunning apartment over here the other day and simply had to share here.  This amazing place is situated right on the central square in Berlin.  It's 16 foot high ceilings and wonderful details provided a perfect canvas for Emmanuels collection of mid century furniture and beautiful art.  I'm not a carpet kinda gal - but that white carpet in the living space looks so cosy!

MADE MODERN

20.8.16

I would like to extend a warm welcome to my newest sponsor! Made Modern only opened their online store in the spring of 2015, but already I can see that is made of great things. They offer a beautifully curated selection of less known names, often offering products that are new to the UK. They also offer some of the classic Scandinavian brands. Hop over and take a look. I promise, you won't be disappointed :)

I think this is my favourite colour-way of the Cross blanket by Pia Wallen.  Delicious.

We actually have large and mini in stock now. Seriously, this is rare.

SUMMER THINGS

The days are passing so quickly and before we know it, it will be autumn (which I love by-the-way), but I also love the last lazy weeks of summer. So with this in mind I wanted to share the summer to-do list that I've been kind of doing, but not with any focus. So here you go. What are your must-do things for the summer?

1. Swim in the sea
2. BBQ on the beach
3. Eat tacos and drink margaritas while the sun sets
4. Lay on the ground and look at the stars
5. Make ice-cream
6. Picnic in the forest
7. Take a day time nap with the window open and feel the breeze
8. Watch a play in an open air theatre
9. Pick wildflowers and blueberries (Iceland)
10.Walk barefoot through the grass

BKR WATER BOTTLE

17.8.16


Can I be in love with a water bottle? Absolutely.  Using plastic food and drinks containers with regard to our health has been such a hot topic lately. It's something I'm really conscious of and I try to steer clear of plastic as much as possible. I use these for baby bear, which I love, but the BKR Water Bottle is just perfect for me.

CERAMIC

Beautiful work by Claykat Ceramics.

APARTMENT IN STOCKHOLM

28.7.16





Wow I love this place, it's very almost perfect. It's inspired me to use some more pastels and less contrast in my new place. Talking of new places, we are house hunting like crazy - nothing seems to fit for us. I guess when we walk in to the right one, we will know. Until then it's back to our old apartment for a few months - with three of us now, plus a cat, it's going to be cosy to say the least :)

PUGLIA, ITALY

19.7.16




These hazy pictures in relaxing pastels really appeal to me today. What I would do to just jump in that beautiful blue ocean right now! I'm sat at my desk in front of a fan in 30 degree heat - it's hot. I'll have a swim later :)

I was given this for my birthday last week by my very special friend Mel. It's a beautiful photo book crammed full of super-cute photos of my baby bear.
