We have an open plan living room and kitchen area with a wooden floor. It would have been to much (wood on wood) to have a wooden kitchen as well so we opted for a white kitchen. But I do love a kitchen made from wood. The kitchen below is actually made from a single elm tree. It is gorgeous don’t you think? Today’s post is the last one in this week’s series about kitchens. Earlier I featured white kitchens and here you can see black kitchens.

Although it is still winter here (with snow and low temperatures), I love looking at summer fashion collections that are now arriving in stores. Each year I wait too long with buying summer clothes and by the time summer has arrived, all the items that I had my eye on are already sold out. So this year I’ll make sure to buy my wish list items early!
Here are some of my favourite summer dresses that I found online: 1. a comfortable jersey maxi dress with a beautiful loose silhouette, 2. a tunic / shirtdress tailored in a lightweight blend of cotton and linen in a perfectly worn-in shade of indigo, 3. a maxidress with breezy kimono-style sleeves and a matching belt to cinch in the waist.
Toast has launched their Spring/Summer 2013 collection which you can see in their gorgeous new catalogue. Here are some of my favorite images and products. I’m especially loving the Orissa Kantha quilt (featured above) and the washed lace bedlinen (below).
Last Monday I showed you some white kitchens. Today is about black! What do you think of these black kitchens? Do you prefer these or the kitchens in white?

Where do you keep all your books? Here are some examples of how and where to store and display books.

This week will be about kitchens. Kitchens come in various colors. When picking a color scheme for your kitchen you have to choose a color that will outlast trends. You have to love the design and color now but also in the years to come. In my opinion the best option is either to have white, black or wooden cabinets as these are timeless. I will be showing there three options this week, starting today with examples of white kitchen. I am curious to know which color would be your first choice!

What do you think about using concrete in your home? Concrete can be quite cold but combined with other materials (such as wood) it can have a beautiful look. Lately I am been seeing more and more home accessories made of concrete which are great to add a little bit of an industrial look to your interior.

These chunky hand knit scarves from Zilalila look so warm and comfy!
A little bit of yellow to celebrate that we are heading to Spring, my favorite season.
