Dark green is Mr. E’s favorite color. I like green, but incorporating it into our house has been a bit of a struggle. (Especially since the house came with yellow walls!) I’ve long been keeping an eye out for dark green in any home dec photos I come across just in case they might offer a solution.
Looking for something else, I found this photo in an older folder. It’s from a magazine that’s probably long recycled now, so unfortunately I don’t have any idea who designed the room or when.
I don’t much care for the details, and the closet wall is positively repulsing to me, but I really like the colors of the bed and bedding. So, it stays in the inspiration folder.

A while ago I discovered the blog of Sania Hedengren and Susanna Zacke, stylists and home dec journalists from Sweden. It’s so lovely to see cozy, colorful Scandinavian style – not everything and everyone in the Nordic countries revolves around modern monochrome minimalism, you know. 🙂
Just a few favorites:
Lovely blue and white front hall with touches of pale wood from an article of theirs in Hus & hem magazine some time in 2015.
Detail from a dream kitchen with white and blue.
Whoops! That’s almost only blue and white and wood. Well, I do know what I love. 🙂

Weslie and Kristina’s north Texas kitchen is not only lovely, it pings my Nordic radar. And no surprise: Kristina is Finnish.
I LOVE the rag rug on the floor! Lots of white and a little blue, green, and red, plus a dash of black, with varying stripe widths. Goes really well with the modern look, including the red Marimekko Unikko curtain fabric. Apparently it’s a handmade vintage piece which was a gift from their sister-in-law in Finland.

Our back door has a huge window on it. Since the door faces south west, the nook it opens to gets unbearably hot in the summer. For a long time, we’ve wanted a sheer curtain there to block the sun. I finally got one made. Here’s the back door before:
I used scraps of the same sheer fabric we used elsewhere in the house, round elastic, eye screws and small nails. Voila!
Much better. 🙂
