My absolute favourite thing to do at home is having guests. If only I had a bigger place I’d invite all my friends every time I was arranging a dinner or a party. 🙂

Second best is drinking freshly brewed coffee in my bed on a still early Saturday morning…hmmmm! Love it!

So, what’s YOUR favourite thing to do at home?

Say it with toilet paper

Posted: 28. July 2011 in Design

Well, you wouldn’t think…now, would you? 🙂 …I guess you wouldn’t think that you could actually say so much with the right toilet paper.

Question: Which colour of the toilet paper fits best in the black and white bathroom?

Thanks to Renova there are so many new ways you can think of such an ordinary everyday ‘accessory’.

P.S. The black and white bathroom comes from one of my previous posts.

This is your life…

More architectural minimalism

Bow Architecture, design agency behind this residence in Caulfield, Australia, did a really gook job combining the yin and yang of interior design. Look at how the dark elements, like floors, some of the walls and single furniture pieces live in symbiosis with all the whiteness from remaining walls, furniture and the natural light from the outside world.  

The wood elements are so warm and inviting…

If I had a summer house…

…I’d definitely buy melancholic and romantic items like these ones from the Danish Liebe Shop to surround myself with in that summer house of mine 🙂

Kitchen items are all in sweet and soft water colours that can certainly contribute to you stressing completely out.

A man by the beach

With all the rain here in Denmark all I’m thinking of is …a man in a house by the beach.

Ok, his beach house would actually be perfectly enough 😉 undoubtedly if it looked just like this one:

Here the outside is blending perfectly in with the inside…

I really admire the way this wonderful house is open to its surroundings. The border is vaguely visible.

Here’s a stylish sofa arrangement on the garden deck:

Aaaah! Where’s all that sun?!

Today’s inspiration is two totally differently looking pieces of furniture – both with a similar function though…and both are most welcome to move into my place 🙂

The first one is quite a heavy looking cabinet by a Norwegian designer, Kaia Helene Lien Lisveen. As she describes the product herself, PEEKABOO can hide your mess. The unconventional non-rectangular drawers are characterised not only by their round shape but also by the fact that they’re being opened outwards. The only thing you need to do is to push them sideways.

The other piece of furniture is an explosion of summer colours – yellow and light green. The fact that it is inspired by the ISO international paper standard (Series A – A2, A3, A2, etc.) gives it a twist and makes it only more appealing. Not surprisingly the cabinet’s name is ISO System 216. The designer behind it is Simon Moorhouse from Invisible City. ISO System 216 will soon become a part of a whole furniture series.

…to make your child eat 😉

I personally find the Breakfast Express from reikokaneko a total break-through in children’s behavioral psychology… aha! Sounds too technical? Then take a look at that:

Isn’t it a perfect way to help your baby enjoy one of life’s greatest pleasures?

This is the egg cup:

This is the toast rack:

And finally this is the salt & pepper cellar:

Enjoy your meal! 🙂

…and since I don’t normally wear that much body decoration or whatever else we choose to call it; it’s certainly a compliment.

In addition, and also due to the fact, that is not a fashion blog, I hurry to assure you that this jewellery has indeed a lot with interior design and architecture to do… 😉

Well, check for yourself:

And finally beautiful letters (so popular in interior design at the moment), minimised to a wearable size 😉

Now, how cute is this? 😉

Do you see this pure perfection in lines and finish?

Something so appealing to my mathematically analytical mind…

Sugar sweet round forms and totally oversized buttons on the back pillows.
