A COLORFUL AUSTRALIAN HOME WITH A BOHEMIAN VIBE Thu, 26 Nov 2015 11:55:00 +0000 Continue reading ]]>


This Australian home located in Palm Beach (Sydney) has a beautiful bohemian vibe. Owners John and Merryl Greaves have an African backgrounds (Kenyan and South African), which is reflected in the decor. The decoration is a mix of bright colors, reclaimed wood, repurposed objects and accessories sourced on travels. I love the colorful painting in the various spaces.

A SWEDISH HOME WITH A RAW EDGE Wed, 25 Nov 2015 10:57:16 +0000 Continue reading ]]>


Tony and Asa Löfling bought the house in Västmanland, Sweden, in 1999 to open a jewelry shop on the street level floor. The first years the family lived upstairs, but when his daughters Emma and Linn were growing up they needed more space and the family moved to a larger house. Two years ago Tony and Asa decided to move the shop and move back into the house and renovated the building. Architect Johan Israelson was hired and was given a free hand to create a raw yet warm atmosphere.

BEAUTIFUL STYLED KIDS ROOM BY RAFA KIDS Thu, 19 Nov 2015 09:40:59 +0000 Continue reading ]]>

Rafa-kids toddler room with grey in ornage 01

I always love the styling done by Rafa Kids! Inspired by cheerful and sunny orange colour Agata from Rafa Kids combined it with sober tones of grey, patterns of birds wallpaper and a graphics touch. Delicate pattern of birds on the wallpaper, which is from Chispum, brings the dreamy atmosphere in this room. The plane stickers are from Chispum as well. That beautiful bed is from Rafa Kids and here you can also purchase the orange wool blanket as well as the shelf featured in the last image.

WONDERFUL WINTER WHITE FASHION PIECES Wed, 18 Nov 2015 11:50:07 +0000 Continue reading ]]>


Once there was a rule that you can only wear white in summer, but these days are over. I love winter white and it’s a color that suits most skin & hair tones. Currently I am into gold fine jewellery pieces and these go very well with all shades of white. It’s just such a stylish combination, don’t you think (see image below)?! In this post you can find some suggestions for winter white fashion pieces and delicate gold jewellery (which have the perfect size to fit in Christmas stockings…).



Stylish & comfortable: a duster coat with white Adidas Stan Smith sneakers.


cashmere pompom hat | love tag necklace | hand fringed sweater | gold chain earrings.



mohair coat | delicate gold diamond pendant necklace | diamond bar stud earrings | dream tag necklace | Mille coat.


Ulla Johnson cardigan, available here and here.

More winter white sweaters: cashmere blend coat | draped coat | bouclé knit coat | faux shearling coat |
- merino wool poncho | retro inspired cashmere coat.

More winter white coats & jackets: chunky knit turtleneck sweater | w00l & cashmere v-neck sweater | cashmere knit sweater.
