This week the Pantone Colour of the Year was announced and for the first time it was a combination of two different shades; Rose Quartz & Serenity.
“Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.” – Pantone
Here is a selection I put together showing you how to add touches of Rose Quartz & Serenity in your home;
It’s the first of December & I can’t believe how fast time is flying by.. Is anyone else stressing out over Christmas present & decorations realising they don’t have as much time as they though to finish?
On my search online I have discovered a lot of great items on Etsy, so I decided to do a festive blog post sharing some of my favourite Scandinavian Christmas finds.
SCANDINAVIAN ORNAMENTS by HUSdesigns:
A sweet collection of traditional Scandinavian ornaments that can be put on your Christmas tree or on a branch ornament on the table. These remind me of my childhood, as my family always had similar ornaments on our tree!

Hope you get some inspiration for decorating your home in Scandi style!
Last month I did a blog post showcasing some of my favourite Scandinavian inspired finds from Etsy (check it out here). It was such a great way to discover and connect with small shops, so I decided to do another one. So, here you go.
MOOSE WALL HANGER by Metalya:
Cute and modern moose head coatrack & jewelry organizer.
I am currently on a trip home to Norway visiting my family & friends. It’s so lovely to be back in the land of fjords, although the weather is quite different from what I am used to now.. When I got home I was happy to discover the new IKEA catalogue had arrived, so I thought it was a good idea to post some of my favourites from it here on the blog.
I love the KNAGGLIG boxes in untreated pine wood, they are great on their own or stacked together as a custom storage space.
The LISABO desk in ash veneer with legs in solid birch gives a warm and natural feeling to your work space. Each desk has its own unique character because of the distinctive grain pattern in the wood surface.
When putting on makeup and getting ready in the morning it is important to have even lighting without any shadows. That is why the STORJORM mirror with integrated lighting is the perfect bathroom mirror, plus it also looks beautiful.
The DALSHULT / SLÄHULT table is so pretty, and the combination of the crossed trestle base in wood and the white table top is so fitting.
I like the whole SÖERHAMN sofa series, but especially like how they have created a little cosy nook by using the SÖDERHAMN footstool in dark yellow. A lovely little spot to relax and read a good book..
The TJUSIG hanger comes in white or black and is a great addition to any wall. It is a practical storage space for clothes, bags, hats or anything you want.
