I received this beautiful brass trivet from one of my great sponsors, Vuela Boutique. I love the color and pattern of this heavy trivet, designed by Oji Masanori. It also comes in star and galaxy shapes and a beautiful way to hold hot pots and plates.

I've had my eye on these great wire cubes for some time. Recently I discovered that Montana now has a web store and sells these Verner Panton boxes. If my birthday wasn't so far away, I'd be asking for a few of these!

Everything about this sleek, sophisticated place is everything I want.

The sun has come out today and it's given me a much needed burst of energy after being sick last week.
Hoping you're off to a good start this week.

I love the muted tones in my home, there is a mixture of whites, blacks, greys and textures to harmonise things as it can get pretty chaotic in here. Ocasionally however I like to spice things up with a touch of pink, I think it sits well with the achromatic feel of the flat and the pink really pops out. Sometimes we just need a bit of colour.

A few things currently on my dresser, a candle stick by Catherine Lovatt from Lotta Agaton's shop, a post card from Therese Sennerholt, a stack of Paumes books cinched with a rubber band and a clear box with some of my rings.

Sometimes as a mom I feel this way, though once he's grown and out of the house I will probably miss his dirty little fingers and crumbs all over the place.

These handmade bags are super sleek and simple and I especially like the metallic ones!

Such a great and minimal place with lots of room. I love how seamless everything is from top to bottom.

Found via Emma.

which one?

Many of you are probably familiar with the classic Uten Silo organizer and while I am a fan I also like this metal one from House Doctor. I don't know which I prefer better of the two but I was wanting to order one for my work room.

Which one do you prefer?

The other weekend I had to tackle the mountain of papers on my desk from the shop. I found some simple black boxes to store them in and it's so nice to have my desk cleared off, even if it only lasted for a day.
I also bought this twine dispenser and painted the bottom black, it's actually been a huge help with packaging orders.

Hope your week is off to a good start!

blueberry and banana muffins

We cant get enough of these blueberry and banana muffins in the morning especially from the two boys. I thought I would share the recipe with you as its really quick and easy.

Ingredients:

150g plain flour
75g porridge oats
75g light brown sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
pinch of slat
150ml of skimmed milk
30g of butter
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 medium egg
200g of blueberries
1 banana ripe

*please note not all ingredients are shown above in the ingredient picture

1. Preheat oven to 200C/fan 180C/350F
2. Take all your dry ingredients and sift in the flour and baking powder and then gentle stir in the sugar, oats and the salt.
3. Take a separate bowl and beat your egg together with the milk, vanilla and then the butter.
4. Once all mixed together pour into the dry mixture gradually adding a mashed banana.
5. Gentle fold in 3/4 of the blueberries leaving the rest to sprinkle over the top once placed in the muffin tray.
6. Bake for 20-25 mins until golden.

We like them with a little heat in them so whenever we want one I will put them in the oven for 5 mins. The best thing is they can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months be sure to defrost them the night before.

Enjoy.

Northern Delights

The talented Emma Fexeus from emmas design blogg has been working tirelessly on a new book soon to be released next month. Here are a couple preview pages from the book which you can soon order here.
Great work dear Emma!


A bit about the book:
If the goal were to build a house in which everyone would like to live, the architect would likely be Italian, the engineer maybe German, the gardener probably British, and the craftspeople either Swiss or Japanese. The interior designer of that house, though, should—beyond any doubt—be from Scandinavia.

Hardly any other interior or product design is so timeless, so functional, so aesthetic, and of such high quality as that of Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Denmark. Throughout the years, countless pieces of furniture, objects, and buildings from Scandinavia have become icons of international design and architecture. A current generation of designers from these countries is consciously building upon local sustainable design traditions and further developing them in a way that is consistent, intelligent, and reflects an unerring sense of style.

In Northern Delights, design classics meet young talents, individual products meet skillfully staged living spaces. The book’s stunning selection of work reveals what makes Scandinavian design so exceptional. The included examples show how the grains of different woods, the clarity of colored glass, the cheery colors of fabrics and patterns, and the overall quality of craftsmanship contribute to creating simple, inviting, and very comfortable living spaces.

Northern Delights offers inspiration to designers, architects, and individuals in equal measure. In a Scandinavian dwelling, everyone feels at home.

black grout

If I could I would love to be able to grout the white tiles in the kitchen or the bathroom with black grout. I really love how the black makes the tiles pop out and gives a really graphic industrial look to your kitchen or bathroom. I love how practical the grout would be and it wouldn't show up any stains which really is a pet peve of mine. Here are some beautiful photographs to inspire you over the weekend.
