Rustic bathroom ideas


I'm preparing for next week's re-designing of the front door area of my house. At present it's very small and un-welcoming, but all that will change. More on that later. Another project of mine is my bathroom. Not a very pretty sight either. Functional, but… Searching the web for inspiration, here are a selection of what I found:





The first five images above are from Pinterest, with no proper source. The three images below are from a small bath in a renovated Australia home (found here). I f you want to see more from this small two room apartment with a very spacious feel, check out the blogpost below.

DARK STYLING - Natural Beauties from Japan


REPOST from March 2013. 
Award winning japanese designer Katsumi Machimura started off as a jewelry designer in the 1960s, and didn't dig his hands into clay until years later. His stunning ceramic work has both elegance and roughness - proper gems in themselves! Katsumi Machimura also love gardening, and share his passion for nature in his garden blog. I borrowed these pictures of his ceramic work and natural photos from Atelier Katsumi here.

Rethink your table settings

Bringing nature to your table via wooden plates and cutlery may not be the most practical, perhaps? But it is very trendy. Very right now. At flee markets you may still find beautiful wooden items for almost nothing. Prefer new ones? Check out british designer Gary Allson's wooden plates, bowls and cutlery below.

Dreaming of lazy summer days

February in Sweden. Outside it's snowing, inside I cuddle up next to the fireplace, waiting for spring to arrive. In coming years, I hope to spend more time in places like this - a Spanish Mediterranean country house with a pool and daylight studio in Mallorca. To be hones, I think it's beyond my reach, but a girl can dream, can't she? Mmmmm. Where is YOUR paradise?

As if time stood still


I just love the relaxed atmosphere in these images from Hill End in Australia. Once a large settlement, Hill End has shrunk to a small village - but the pull it exerts on artists brings new life to its historic homes. Visiting artists find Hill End unique and paintable. These images are from Haefliger's Cottage built in the 1860s. Read more about this village here







Hill End has recently seen a second renaissance via a popular artists-in-residence program, where artist can stay for a month in two of the cottages.
