July Wishlist

Taking a little jump start today and sharing my wishlist for the month of July. As you can see, there are a lot of grey tones with timber accents and some chrome details. Our floor renovations will hopefully be close to finished by the end of the week and I am looking forward to styling our “new home”. You can see a little snippet of the floors in the flatlay image, as well as some paint swatches I have been staring at on and off for days… We will probably end up keeping the current wall colour, as the new floors seem to compliment the beige-grey tone really well.

Anyway, here are a few dream products I would love to add to my home… If not next month, then maybe one day!

1.Lyngby Porcelain vases – I actually have some already, see my previous post about them here. 2. Louis Poulsen pendant – not sure where I would put this, but have loved this classic design for a long time 3.  Nikari April tables – amazing Finnish design 4. More Finnish design – Woodnotes rugs are another long-time favourite. With the new floors, this would look absolutely spot on. 5. Anything from Montana is high on my wishlist. The quality of their products is superior and designs are very clever! Like this Note cabinet, for example, I love it. 6. Wicker is such a late 80’s, early 90’s reminder for me (my parents had wicker dining chairs my brother broke one by one – accidentally, of course), but I still love it. This tray from Normann Copenhagen would add just a touch of wicker, perfect.  7. I bought one of these Carl Hansen and Son CH24 chairs earlier this year and would love a few more. Another one for the long-term wishlist, I think! 8. You simply can’t go wrong with Kubus. This nickel version is so festive, yet minimal at the same time.

Weekend Plans

It’s been a pretty tough week with a sick child, work, renovation plans and other engagements. I am so ready for the weekend!

I’m a true believer in that your home should be like an oasis; a place you feel safe and happy to be in and always look forward to going back to. No matter how busy and challenging things might get, I always try to create that peacefulness in all corners of our home. Sometimes it’s the little details that give you comfort and put a smile on your face after a busy day. Like a bouquet of your favourite flowers, soft textiles or a stack of inspiring magazines waiting to be flicked through.

Wishing you a lovely weekend ahead! Go and do things that you love doing xx
