There’s a tight connection between these two – have you noticed? Of course you have, a reindeer has been the symbol of a Christmas for a very long time now. I must say, when I see a reindeer next to a Christmas tree I instantly feel so much joy and holiday cheer and I know it wouldn’t be the same without the reindeer part. So no matter the style you’re going with this Christmas, put there a cute reindeer (plastic, paper – it really isn’t important) and you’ll add to your holiday even more festive vibes!
Being that my design style, aesthetics is an ever-changing thing I never thought I’d say that, but I found my dream bedroom. It has the color of a pale pink rose, a gorgeous comfy bed, a cozy cowhide rug, the most feminine settee I’ve ever seen, a Vogue poster and of course it has fresh flowers in pretty vases. How could a girl not like all this? Not sure my husband would be as excited as I am, but still – I’d love to have Crystal’s bedroom (that girl is a huge talent when it comes to decorating, don’t you think? Her home as seen in the anniversary issue of Rue looks amazing!):
You probably all heard that Pantone named the color of 2012 Tangerine Tango. Just like its last year’s sister – honeysuckle – tangerine is a rich, bright hue which leaves a big impact on a room if used right. Accessories, a wall, a rug or a sofa will bring a cheery vibe into your home, tangerine will simply make your space warmer, happier, more modern and home-y. Of course, tangerine will be equally often used in fashion industry (I think the trend was clearly seen already in 2011, right?). Lipstick, nail polish, silky dresses – all tangerine colored will definitely make for a bright year!
It’s Friday, friends! Which means it’s time to prepare for some serious ‘you time’, get pampered and soak in R&R moments with every cell of yours. I mean not that my weekend will be filled with much of the aforementioned (not much time for that, ha ha!), but I love to visualize it :)
What will you be doing this weekend?
So you can totally spice up the room you think needs to be freshened up a bit. Insane? Oh yes. Unique? Heck yes! There’s just one picture I’m sharing with you, but it so left me speechless, so I had to. Imagine the decorating possibilities if you would actually have a tree in your dining room! Not to mention how thrilled your kids would be about their possibilities. All in all, it’s a win-win situation, you know what I mean? Ok, so maybe the idea is too crazy to be brought to life, but just imagine…
Since last year I also posted about a Scandinavian Christmas I thought I would make of it a tradition and bring a bit of Scandinavian in your life every year. This year is a bunch of pictures to inspire you to have your own Scandinavian inspired Christmas, no matter where you are. I know I’d LOVE this year the Scandinavian Christmas tree, which is so much different than trees you can see in the States or Europe: with few decorations, with twinkle lights, in a bucket – these are the main details a Scandinavian Christmas tree shows off. Oh and don’t forget about the (faux) fur – it’s quite an important part of a Scandi inspired home decor (and not only for Christmas), right?
Have you ever wondered what would be like to go bold regarding wallpapers in your home? And I mean like real bold: pattern madness, hypnotizing mixes, perhaps exaggerated amount of it? I doubt I’d be able to be so brave as of having a room which makes it hard for your eyes to stay opened (nor would I want to, if we’re at it), but I do admire people who have the guts to apply wallpapers on all four walls plus the ceiling (crazy, right?). Or people who are obsessed with stripes and so there are many stripes around their homes.
Would you or would you not go bold with your wallpaper choice?
There’s no more relevant symbol of Christmas than the twinkle lights, right? They’re absolutely magical and breathtaking! On this Christmas-y note I wish you a wonderful Monday and a great week!
Twinkle, twinkle little star…
Hello, sweets! Are you having a relaxing Saturday? I sure am, cozied up in bed with my laptop, warm under a cover and inspired big time! Inspired to be better, happier, more understanding and inspired to smile more (new year’s resolutions perhaps?). What are you inspired to do today?
I have to say it wouldn’t be the same without the ‘warm under a cover’ part, I’m obsessed with staying warm and hate it when I’m cold. Seriously, there’s no worse feeling for me. That’s why I’m dreaming today about fireplaces of all kind – they totally change a room making it more inviting and home-y.
Well, I guess the title said it all – I’m now sharing with you a home located in Sweden, Scandinavian to the core with pops of bright colors and vintage accessories (after all the owner, Leah, is a vintage furniture shop owner – is that a dream job or what?). Aaand Leah’s favorite color is yellow (which dominates throughout the house) – can I move in?
