I’ve read a bunch of interiors/decor books lately, and need to say a few words of the possibly best one I have ever read: “Från loppis till salong” (approx. From Flea Market to Fine Salon) by Ida Magntorn. Ida Magntorn is a Swedish writer, stylist and photographer and here’s her blog. This book is all [...]
Trendey has been awfully quiet lately..! I’m busy saving the world, and if not Henen decides on a sudden comeback, this slow is how it’ll stay a couple more months.

The coolest lamps consist of various stuff put together (be it bottles, odd china or well, anything), handicrafted lamp shades (knit wool, braided birch bark, etc) or just some old thing made into a lamp (like a [...]

I find crafts and DIY-projects vastly inspiring. The creativity behind all the ideas is like brilliant sunshine to me! Best thing, you can soak up inspiration for your own unique project. Here’s a collection of a few of my favorites/thought nuts in this area: | Distressed Folk Art Painting and Resolutions Subway Art (click for [...]
