INSPIRATIONAL CUPBOARD

My sister has this beautiful cupboard where she stores different found objects. She calls it her inspirational cupboard. There's a lot of old ribbons, books, old notesheets and magazines. Recently we bought a few old records, because of their beautiful covers, and they also went into the cupboard. It's always nice to be able to look at your things and find inspiration instead of burying everything in drawers. Dedicating a cupboard to all those things you don't necessarily want laying around, means that you don't have to move it and it doesn't have to look perfect all the time.
 
Have a great Thursday! /Annika
 
 

CLOSETS WITH HISTORY

When you move into an older house, the built in closets are often in a very bad shape and the style might not be the most likable. But when I first saw these shutter doors, in our recently bought house, I was in love. They are gorgeous and they just add a lot of charm to the bedroom. So there was not much arguing, when deciding to keep this beautiful old closet. I have later learned from previous owners of the house, that it is a custom built closet along with some other details around the house. I think it's interesting and life confirming to have a piece of history in your house, to know that someone else also once loved and had visions and dreams about this house.
 
Have a beautiful Tuesday! /Sussi
 
Have a look at Fabriken for more great closets. 
 
 

PONCHO LAMP

This lamp is a small project I finished a couple of weeks ago and now it's finally hanging above the coffee table. It's a project inspired by a great idea we came across a while back, when reading one of our favorite blogs...Under Mammas Vingar. It's the blog of Smulan, a very talented blogger and photographer and I do encourage you all to visit her beautiful and inspiring site.
The lamp is made of flea market finds, an old lampshade and a great, fluffy, white poncho. It was like a match made in heaven. Didn't even have to cut of the fabric, except for some minor adjustments at the bottom. The poncho has been attached by folding the edge around the lampshade and then stitched with a sewing-machine.
 
Have a great Monday! /Sussi
 
 

TULIP DECORATION

This decoration will work wonder as a hostess gift and instead of the typical bouquet.
 
MATERIALS:
20 tulips (depends on the size of you pot)
Flora foam
Twine/string
Flower wire or pins,
A pot (we choose an oval pot 25 x 13 cm)
Salal (or green leaves of your choice)
Moss (any kind will do, this one is a silver moss)
 
HOW TO:
Soak the flower foam well in water and cut it to fit the shape of the pot.
Strip the tulips for leaves and cut the stem about 5 cm from the head. Roll some of the stripped leaves and secure with pins or wire. Start by placing a couple of salal on each side of the pot in the foam. Then randomly place out the tulips and the rolled leaves as you like. Take the moss and fill in the gaps. Make a bow from the string and secure with a pin on either side of the decoration and Voila! You're done!
 
Have a creative Saturday! /Sussi

LOVELY MUSCARI

Muscari have the most lovely blue color. They are sure to spread some early spring feeling and will easily last a week or two indoor. They are easy to plant, don't need much water and if you decorate with a bit of moss and twigs...it will look like a forest bottom.
Tomorrow we will post a 'how to' on a really cute tulip decoration. So stay tuned! 
 
Have a great Friday! /Annika
