OYOY Living design + something personal

Have you heard of the new guy (read store) in town called OYOY? It’s another Danish gorgeous place packed with lovely things for your home, all with a Scandinavian touch and who doesn’t love a good dose of Scandi design in his home (clearly not me!). OYOY launched just recently, but it already got lots of praise in blogland so I thought I just might join the fan club and express how in love I am with their stuff :). From geometric to confetti pattern to pretty colors – OYOY is a must-see! I highlighted some fave items that are landing right on my wish list :).What on your wishlist?

P.S. On a more personal note, today is my 3rd wedding anniversary and I just wanted to once again say out loud how much I love my husband and how happy I am to be his wife! I can’t wait for our baby to be born in 6 weeks (updates on my belly on my Instagram, if you’d like to see :D), so we can complete our family and enjoy ourselves to the fullest! Love you, T!

Decorate for a Scandinavian Christmas

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?

Bulbs instead of chandeliers? Heck, yeah!

I’m liking the idea of having hanging bulbs as light fixtures, you know? As much as I love chandeliers (proof here) I sort of think it’s time to bring something new and modern into this. Plus, for some reason the huge bulbs are SO Scandinavian in my opinion and I couldn’t love it more, the look of an oversized bare bulb hanging over a dining table (add some vintage chairs while we’re at it) and you get a picture perfect dining area! Well, bulbs look equally good elsewhere, here’s some inspiration:

Summer house with a Scandinavian twist

And here I am again asking myself what do Swedish and Danish people have that we all don’t? Is it something about the air or we’re simply meant to be different? You’re probably wondering why am I asking this, right? Well, have you seen better homes than those in Sweden and Denmark? Whether we’re speaking about interior designers or just people who like to decorate, they’re equally talented and the outcome (i.e. homes) is just stunning! I’ve been featuring lots of Scandinavian home tours here on the blog, so here is one more, a summer house to die for!

Home Tour: 1970′s villa

Hi everyone! The other day I came across a 1970′s villa tour and I couldn’t help, but post it here (I’m sure there’ll be lots of you who’ll love it, just like me). You’ll ask why? Here are hints: Scandinavian, washed out colors, plenty of white and pops of bright shades. Oh and stunning artwork! There’s a vintage-y modern vibe injected in those rooms which are enchanting! The home belongs to Marie and Bill and their two children. And I suggest you to read the entire post, I was impressed, to say the least. You all know my love for everything Scandinavian and am seriously thinking my home (you know, the dream home I’ll someday own :D) will be exactly like the one I’m showing you in this post, the below pictures are undoubtedly landing in my inspiration folder. What about you? How your dream home looks like?

Black & White from Elle Interior Norway

A while back I received two copies of the always stunning Elle Interior Norway (huge thank you for this!) and I thought I must share glimpses with you all. The magazines were absolutely gorgeous and inspiring and I’m so frustrated our Elle Dekor just can’t pull together a similar issue every month (remember they were doing quarterly? well, now the skipped winter issue, ugh). Nonetheless, here are some glamorous, Scandinavian inspired images with mainly black and white, which will surely feel like fresh air in your life at the moment, among all the Christmas-y colorful inspiration! Talk about Scandinavian Maximalism.

Home Tour: modern Villa Villekulla

Hi, everyone! TGIF, right? This week seemed to me so so long (I was sick last weekend, so it didn’t actually feel like a weekend at all), on Tuesday I was thinking it’s already Friday, so today I’m REALLY happy to know it is indeed Friday and the weekend is ahead. I want to share with you pictures of a home tour that’s called Villa Villekulla (you know the story of Pippi Longstocking, right? well, the story tells that Pippi lives in Villa Villekulla). The home I’m talking about is so white and crisp with splashes of bright colors seen in the artwork, pieces of furniture, rugs and the rest of the interior. Although it has plenty of white, this home feels more modern than sterile and it actually brought excitement into my heart – I want to move there! So while you’ll check the pictures, I’m going to pack my stuff :)

Color+Inspiration: White, Black & Camel

Hello, my friends! We’re on half way to weekend, so get excited, we’re almost there! Yesterday while flipping through my brand new and first issue of Norwegian Elle Interior I came across a picture which had me enlightened. How didn’t I think before about black, white and camel color combination? I mean in my book these three colors are the image of modern, stylish yet warm and cozy interiors! Just feels this way! A timeless inspiring look of a black and white space is undoubtedly the chicest thing ever, but when these two are accompanied by a natural, indeed a warm shade (and don’t get me started on how trendy camel is this season, both in fashion and interior design!) you know that you did GOOD!

MUUTO

On Saturday I was in Supermarket as you all know. So while the other girls were lusting after designer clothes and shoes (they’re allowed, after all they’re fashion bloggers) I was having my eyes on lamps, furniture, pottery and this kind of things. That’s when I spotted Muuto, a company bringing a modern twist into Scandinavian design. Supermarket carries their products and I was simply in love with Muuto stuff! FYI, muutos means perspective in Finnish and I think that this is a pretty amazing name for a company. Muuto’s products are clean, modern and the best of them is that they’re colorful and vibrant! I needed to share with you my find, so please enjoy!
