Dark Green in a Bedroom

September 28, 2016 § Leave a comment

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.

Dark Green in a Bedroom

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.

Colorful Styling from Sweden

September 13, 2016 § Leave a comment

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.

Whoops! That’s almost only blue and white and wood. Well, I do know what I love. 🙂

Kitchen Rag Rug & Marimekko Poppy Curtains

October 13, 2015 § 2 Comments

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.

Quick Project: No-Sew Sheer Curtain for Back Door

June 8, 2015 § Leave a comment

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:

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!

Back Door After

Much better. 🙂

I love how this wall quilt incorporates the flying geese quilt pattern and updates it a little:
