window decor

I made a couple of brown moss trees and put them on top of some very thin glass candle holders. It gives them a floating look which matches the lanterns. /Sussi
 
 

HYDRANGEA WREATH

 The other week when I posted a bunch of images of my sister´s wreaths, I forgot to add a few pictures of this gorgeous piece. I think it would be a very elegant Christmas addition to the white country style. /Annika

 

TREND FORECAST 2011

 
Over at Design Refuge they have this monthly challenge and we thought it would be fun to be part of it. This month´s theme is trends for 2011.

I don´t consider myself much of a trend follower and I like to believe this is because I surround myself with things for the reason that it moves me and that I have specifically chosen them, not the other way around.
This might sound a bit strange since this is a post about trends, but I actually think this is going to be one of the great trends of 2011. Not following trends....but to be unique and real.
We like to surround our self with things that tell stories, things that we can relate to and enjoy. The home is the place where we live and breathe and this needs to be present in our choice of decorating. 
I think we need to feel authentic and whether that is based on an ecological choice, the craftsmanship of the early 1900´s or a sleek design of the 60´s is probably less important. We will choose not based on trend but based on heart.
 

 

 

 
I believe we´ll see a raw mix of materials like wood, metal, glass, knitwear and rough textiles. The style is likely to be influenced by flea marked finds, reclaimed materials, retro design, vintage industrial furniture, eco-friendly design, graphic prints and ´handmade´. Color wise the earthy tones including white are likely to be the base colors, but I think we’ll see, on top of that, splashes of colors and especially shades of blue and purple. /Annika

knitted materials and wet boots

The entrance hall is often a cluttered space and especially in winter when we are wearing several layers of clothing and big boots to keep warm, it gets quite chaotic and messy. But I think there is a certain coziness to the soft, warm clothing and thick knitted materials one seem to have an extensive need for when it’s cold. And it does make up for the fact, that the entrance hall is probably the hardest maintainable area during this season.
Ha en fin tisdag. /Annika

note sheet flowers

Last project in the note sheet series is a gift box and a couple of paper flowers. These little paper flowers can be used when gift-wrapping or you might want to add a string and hang them in a tree or window. You'll find the instructions and template for the gift box and flower in this printable PDF.
 
Have a wonderful snowy Monday! /Annika
