I took my daughter to Paris for a few culturally inclined days last August, en route to the South. I caught a bug: Since then, Paris seems to be everywhere. I hear chansons, I see Eiffel towers, I eat baguette with soft smelly cheeses, I dress in blue, red and white and have bought Vogue every month. Aaaaaahhhh, Paris...

Four weeks into 2012 , there is no denying that red things are coming my way!!! Scarily so!
I am quite excited though. Having gone through a few years of blues and greens and many turquoises, with a stint in naturals lately, red is definitely pushing its way in!
Is this a subtle way of this blog guiding me through some intuitive colour choices when it comes to Scandinavian classics? Well, it makes me happy!
And this song does too!

As announced last week, the chest will play an important role in this blog: I will make some suggestions how to combine a beautiful piece of old furniture with some pieces from the kitchen, the lounge or the bedroom.
Today’s pieces are white ceramics from all corners of the world, not only from the Nordik home. Combined with some lace doilies left to me by my Oma (German for granny), this selection of crockery looks beautiful against a red wall, paired with a lamp to match. A contrasting photo frame with a black & white rounds up the grouping.

This is a BEAU-tiful piece of furniture that I FOUND abandoned on the street one evening, coming home from a talk about Collaborative Consumption – can you believe it??? It will be a stage for my project to showcase this thingfinder’s “landscapes” for the home… I am looking forward to choosing some treasures that work well together and hope you find some ideas to copy and install in your own abode.

Living in Sydney, this thingfinder's heart has many opportunities to jump, too!

Elaborating a little further on my recent thoughts, I found many proofs of characters and moods from all corners of the fairytale world in our domestic environments: These Swedes wallpaper design embraces smooth, dreamlike shapes, associated to Eastern mysticism as well as Western adventures. They are fairytales for grown-ups that boost the imagination and inspire to create rooms with an individual touch. Follow this and try no 2, then ALLA, then SAGA and watch... A gem!
What story will your room tell?
