Lina Johansson’s beautiful plastic rugs caught my eye with their geometric shapes, graphic patterns and beautiful colours. The style is clean and modern with a bit of a retro vibe, and they are a great way to add some colour or pattern to your home. As they are woven plastic rugs it means that they are easy to wash, long-lasting and nice to walk on. Ideal for any rooms, even for outdoor areas!
As I am slowly getting everything the way I like it in my own flat I have recently had the urge to add a lot of green plants, so when I saw this cute little Swedish home on Alvhem I instantly loved their use of plants. It does add that little extra personal touch, and having the plants hanging on the wall, the String shelves and the window in the kitchen is such a great idea. Now I feel like going out to purchase more plants…anyone else?
As I am currently in the process of planning the walls in my home I am always looking for creative solutions other than just framed photos. As soon as I saw this beautiful and simplistic Swedish home on Stadshem I was very drawn to it. I love the choice to only have a few framed images and the lovely mirror in the living room along with the idea of hanging books and magazines up, how creative! In the kitchen the owner has hung up a few items such as the colander, an apron and the lovely planter which gives a very personal vibe.

It’s been a month since my first little home update so I though it was time to share a bit more. There is still a lot to do, but we are slowly getting there! I always find its better to live somewhere for a while to see what you actually need and get the feel of the space before you do everything.
I am all for affordable solutions, and knew that I didn’t want to spend too much on the dining table. Because of this we decided to get the basic IKEA table Ingo made of solid pine. It comes untreated, so we decided to do it ourself as I wanted a whiter finish. The process was easy but a bit time consuming as we ended up doing three layers of paint and sanding in between. I was so pleased with the end result, it is still not a solid colour so you can see the wood play through which gives a really nice effect. We also added a top coat to so that it is smooth and easy to keep clean.
Another affordable and great purchase we did from IKEA was the white Sprutt cabinet. It is made of thin steel and comes with label holders on each drawer to easy organise everything. At the moment I have yellow blank labels in it, but I am thinking about something creative to do with them..
This is our little music corner where the Crosley record player is the centre of attention. Over the shelf we have the small Mosslanda white picture ledge which gives the perfect space for displaying vinyl records as well as art or any small decorative objects. I love it because it gives me the freedom to change what I have on it quite frequently.
You might have noticed already that I love yellow, and this duvet cover gives the perfect splash of colour to the bedroom. We still have a lot to do in that room as we have been focusing mainly on the living room, so I’ll share more photos when it is ready.
Now I’m going to snuggle up on the couch reading the new Cereal magazine while listening to the rain outside..
I don’t know about you but I am going a bit crazy for plants lately. In my search for the best ways to display them I fell in love with this beautiful range from Ferm Living. I particularly think the plant stands and wall holders are great. Which one would you add to your living space?
Use these plant stands in two different heights to display your plants and flowers in a new and elegant way.
Why not hang your plants up with this beautiful geometric plant hangers, a great mix of retro yet modern!
Or add a little extra greenness in your home by hanging these plant holders on your wall. Great for plants & flowers in the living room or what about herbs in the kitchen.
You can even have one or more of these plant boxes as decoration in your house, temporary storage or room dividers.
If you dont have too much space or simply juts want to add a little touch then the hexagon pots are great. They can also be used in the plant stands or wall mounted plant holders.
