A day at a snowy log cabin / DIY Christmas ideas

Wednesday, 25 November 2015

Hello! How are you today? I have to say I'm feeling a little worse for wear after an evening out with the girls last night (totally self-inflicted I admit!). It's slow mornings like this when I dream of spending the day hiding out at a log cabin. In fact, If I could choose,  my day would look a lot like this. Fancy joining me?!

Sooooo cosy!  

In case you're's the recipe for the hot chocolate with chocolate dipped cinamon marshmallows.  All the bedding in the last picture is available here. See a full tour of that stunning Italian Osteria wedding (how pretty?). There's a great DIY guide to the wreath.

Lots more pretty Christmas / winter inspiration here

Oh, and how cute are these mini Nordic Christmas tree mobiles? They come in a cool little 3D DIY kit...

So pretty and simple - the perfect DIY to create together with your little ones (alongside these 'pepparkaka' or ginger biscuit ideas - I can smell the cinnamon from here!), don't you think?

How would your ideal day look?

Have a lovely day, I'll be back tomorrow with a full house tour again!

PS Happy Thanksgiving to all of you heading off for a long weekend...

A stunning industrial-style home in Lund, Sweden

Tuesday, 24 November 2015

Lund is a lovely old university town a few kilometers North East of Malmö. It was actually the first place I touched down in the south of sweden when I came to visit a friend many moons ago.  In the centre of town, directly behind the station stands this lovely gem of a house built in the 1800s and belonging to Annette and Michael. You won't be surprised to hear they both work in the interiors world. The fabulous home is full of vintage, antique finds, designer pieces and the odd item from IKEA and set against a backdrop of beautiful black stained wood flooring and white walls (don't miss the original ceramic wainscoting!). All in all a stunning home, don't you think?!

I think my favourite room of all is the bathroom with that checquered floor and glass cabinet - what a lovely place to store towels, soaps and other items?!

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Items I know and love: pick up Louis Poulsen workshop pendants here, this vintage plan chest is similar,  Thonet chairs (15% off with code MYSCAN) and Ant chair , this IKEA trolley is similar, OMAR stainless steel shelves and BEKVÄM foot stoolSMEG fridge. Tulip armchair chair (in white), Trisse coffee tables,  Ghost sofa.

Get the look with paint: Wimbourne whiteRailings and Pitch Black by Farrow & Ball are similar.

See more pics of this beautiful home over at Elle Decoration Sweden

Other fab homes with a similar signature style include Swedish stylist queen Lotta Agaton's previous apartment and this country home in Skåne

An almost mid week post wouldn't be the same without helping us dream of dropping it all and escaping to a remote cabin - I think this log cabin overlooking a fjord in the Faroe Islands fits the bill, don't you?!

Have a lovely day!
