I've just been over on long time favourite web-shop Vuela. They are one of my lovely sponsors and oh my.... there are some gorgeous new things over there.  Seriously gorgeous (and I'm not just saying that because they're my sponsor!). Hop over to take a look.Images: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

Wintery still life by Mary Jo Hoffman of Still Blog.  Needless to say - I love her work.

How's the weather where you are? Wintery? Wet? We have some crazy weather today - stormy and rainy - I can hear the waves crashing here in my office *Cosy days*

APARTMENT LOVE

25.1.16


 A nice treat for you this lovely Monday afternoon! What an inspirational space. Gorgeous high ceilings, huge windows, vintage furniture and I just love the leaning art work.  I hope you all had a great weekend! I had a lovely time - I spent it in Haarlem with my love, catching up with friends and drinking coffee....It was just great.

LANDLEIT

20.1.16







Gorgeous friends of mine Tim and Tómas have just renovated their stunning old house situated in Akureyri (north of Iceland). They have truly worked some magic in this place - and I for one, cannot wait to go and stay there. They've mastered the delicate balance of keeping things traditional and cosy whilst finishing in a modern, minimalistic style. 

Akureyri is a beautiful city - it is known as "the capital of the north" and it is surrounded by amazing  nature. They are taking bookings now, so if you have a trip to Iceland planned this year (so many people are visiting right now) - you must include this little gem on your itinerary.

FELIX BEAR

My good friend Mel snapped this of my baby bear the other day.  His eyes look so dark in this picture....Life is great at the moment (apart from a bout of cold that we've all had - for about a month).  The work/mamma balance is working out really well. I feel like I've found my flow and I finally feel satisfied that I'm putting enough into both.  Felix is changing so much and becoming a really funny, adorable, kind little boy. He's full of energy and definitely has his daddy's cheekiness - seriously he makes my heart melt every day. I really do feel like the luckiest girl in the world. 

TOTO

15.1.16

Some new characters have joined our collection at Story North.  Toto the Totem Toy is designed by Rock and Pebble and each has been handmade from solid maple in the US. Don't you just love?

SWISS COTTAGE RENOVATION

12.1.16





I love this raw, minimal design by architects Georg Nickish and Selina Walder and *sigh* the view from that bath is something else.  Could I live something so stark? Yep I think maybe I could....

Images: Via here and here with thanks.

MARIPOSA

The latest addition to our home. The Mariposa butterfly chair is handcrafted with Argentinian leather by Cuero Design in Sweden. We went for the natural leather and black legs as shown here.

LIGHT

Some light filled interiors for you this morning. I lean towards more contrast in my interiors these days, but actually you really cannot go wrong with interiors swathed in this much light. Happy Friday lovely people!

HAPPY NEW YEAR

4.1.16

Wow it's here. 2016. It's just unbelievable, how time passes.  So Happy New Year lovely readers! Did you have a good holiday break? Mine was just lovely. Lots of family and friend time - just perfect :)

I'm not going to write a long list of new years resolutions, because throughout the year I'm always trying to improve, be more efficient, get fitter, perfect everything a little more! The list goes on.....  But one of my aims is to post more often. My blog takes a hit when I have lots going on (evident in this past advent giveaway). Now is one of those times as the shop is really busy and I am working on a couple of interior projects. It's all good and I am very lucky, but my blog is such a major part of my personal and professional life, that I have to give it some love! So lovely people, thanks for sticking by whilst the posting has been sparse. I endeavour to serve you better!

ADVENT GIVEAWAY

7.12.15

I'm so sorry that this advent giveaway has been so sporadic and absent. Felix Bear has been unwell and it's been a bit of a struggle balancing everything and being able to post! Anyway, I'm sure you will be so happy with this giveaway - which I will leave open for a few days! My lovely sponsor I Dream Elephants is offering this very cute storage bag from TELLKIDDO. To enter, please hop over to the store and tell me your three favourite items - from anywhere on the store - that won't be easy everything is pretty much gorgeous!  Please leave your comment on this post. Thank you and good luck!

DARK + DELICIOUS

24.11.15

A dark treat for you all on this lovely monday afternoon. Not that I'm feeling dark at all - actually quite the opposite. Yep I'm feeling more in control than I have for a long time. We have finally moved into our new place, back on the south coast of England (100 meters from the beach). I've set up the house (more or less) and my office (more or less). We have a new nanny and Felix is signed up for a couple of days of nursery (eek!), so I can officially now work. Thank goodness - it will no longer be a balancing act of trying to squeeze in an email or two whilst he's napping.... as we all know it's impossible to try and do anything when they are around. I wouldn't have it any other way - spending time with him is so amazing and precious - I love every second of it. However I need to be someone else too. Now I am both :)

CROSS BLANKET

Spotted this gorgeous image the other day - I love that Tipi (Felix has a similar one) and of course the Cross blanket is a beautiful addition (that's the large one....).  Pia Wallens Cross blankets are selling as well as ever and we have new stock in for the festive season when it all goes a bit crazy!

AT HOME WITH KATRINE + JAKOB

4.11.15




I love the fine details of this house, a personal gallery of Katrine and Jakon  specifically designed with their children in mind. Black, white, natural materials, personal artwork, a bit of glamour and plenty of books - my kind of interior ;)

SUPERFRONT

 I Love this cabinet that was designed by Per Olav Solvberg for Superfront. This along with others is being auctioned off for charity.  All proceeds go to RNK's telethon for the Rainforest.

DREAMING

NEW YORK

6.10.15

SO looking forward to our trip to New York in a few weeks. We are leaving Felix at home with my parents while we spend 5 days enjoying the city. Couple time is so precious and lovely - we are actually really good at making sure we have plenty of it - it's so important!

SWEET TOOTH

1.10.15

Beautiful recipe and imagery from lovely blog Call Me Cupcake. So, it's now autumn and I'm loving it. Time to start cooking lovely warming meals, wearing scarfs and taking walks in the beautiful parks of Haarlem and Amsterdam. Not for long though - we won't have our holiday home in the Netherlands for much longer. This is the end of an era - we will be back in the UK full time in a couple of weeks. We may buy something here in Haarlem in the future though, it means so much to us (Felix bear was born here) and to say we love this beautiful place is an understatement *sigh*

AT HOME WITH MARCUS WAINWRIGHT IN THE HAMPTONS

It's no surprise to me that the home the owner of the label Rag and Bone has  a beautiful place. This is his family home in the Hamptons. Wouldn't mind retreating there from the city every weekend.I'm home sweet home after 2 weeks in Miami. As nice as it was - it's lovely to be away from the heat and of course it's always lovely to be home.Images: Bo Bedre No

IT'S IN THE (SIMPLE) DETAILS

31.8.15



I can't get enough of Japanese interiors (and exteriors) and it's unbelievable to me that I still haven't managed to get there.  But Japan is on the list and it will happen. It's a baby-friendly place, so we can reserve that trip as a family one.  Lots of travelling is on the agenda in the coming year, mostly with Felix, but maybe a few days here and there just James and I.  Grown-up, couple time is very precious and I absolutely love it, plus it gives my mum the chance to have Felix to herself for a few days and she loves that :)
