Decorating my living room
I really felt like cleaning out some shelves and re-organise some things in our dining area. Perhaps the loss of my dad and all the sadness around it made me want to start fresh again … you recognise this feeling? Some people go out sporting or shopping I like to stay in my own home and find comfort in the things I cherish … so last Sunday while my boys were playing outside I gave myself some ‘me’ time .. while listening to some music I enjoyed moving my things around.
Usually I forget taking pictures but this time I thought let’s share it with you my dear readers, you have been so supportive of me lately … so I hope you like my small decoration ideas.
I always keep things simple in my home, group things together and try to give proper attention to even the smallest object. [CONTINUE READING]
Tin, copper and bras are my new favorites and luckily for me my mom had quite a collection and she was more than willing to pass them on to me. I like how the tinny things are grouped together in a more modern setting. It is probably the color that I like so much. And mixing old and new is I believe always a good idea.
I will mention some of the obeject you see in the pictures. The red bar stool is by Heidi Sebastian for established&sons. Rik and I bought it for our apartment in Singapore but with new tenants living their now we thought better to use it ourselves. I absolutely love the stool and just to let you know it sits very comfortably.
The shelves are by string from Sweden, but I guess you knew that already … a little vintage vase by Tapio Wirkkalla, square robot prints by Vorstin, Italian cotton threads by Carta inc., a ceramic pencil box by Dick van Hoff, blue ceramic pot by inkypots and the rest are thrift store finds.
