The last few weeks have been hectic, and that’s pretty much an understatement to be honest. I’ve been working on plenty of projects at the same time (which is rarely a good idea) and to make it even more tricky, I’ve been visiting my parents for a week. It was a great week, a gorgeous one to be honest, but it’s so tempting to just relax in the wonderful surroundings when I get there, which makes a heavy workload even harder to handle.

I love to look at available houses and apartments and the fun thing is that you never know what you’ll find out there. I can tell you one thing for sure; the preferences you thought you have are not always the most important. The intuition and the “feeling” is a lot more important, and the apartment you love the most, is far from always the one that is most suitable for you.
Some places are just amazing. Almost too good to be true. You know, that kind of place where you want to move in, just after seeing a few photos. The place above and below is one of that kind.

All the photos in this post are borrowed from BEdesign, and it shows some of their great pieces, which I would gladly bring into my home whenever I had the opportunity. Continue reading
I did something this morning that I should do more often. I made my own smoothie and had for breakfast. Not a very tricky one. Just used 3 ingredients, but it was delicious and it was healthy! I took 2 dl of low-fat strawberry yoghurt, 1 orange and 1 apple and put it in the blender, mixed for 20 seconds and then it was ready to serve. Delicious! Enjoyed it along with a cup of coffee and the latest issue of the Swedish interior magazine Hus & Hem as can be seen above. It was a great moment of relaxation. Continue reading
