DIY Easter Pastel Party

I have to admit I never been crazy about Easter (except for the fact that you get a couple of extra days off from work). Saying that, for this years Easter, I headed back home to Sweden  to spend some quality time with my family and decided to go Easter-Decoration-Nuts. My sister and I decided … Continue reading

Blondie&Pixie DIY Experiment: Statement Headpiece

In the second workshop for the Blondie&Pixie DIY experiment, Carmen and I decided to play with tulle to create two-different head-pieces. December is one of those months that are crazy-busy and packed with Christmas parties and events. In the midst of doing-everything-that-needs-to-done it can be difficult to find the time (and the energy!) to get … Continue reading

DIY Tulle Skirt

Ever since I saw the below photo several seasons ago, I’ve been obsessed about creating a big-puffy-nude-pink-tulle-skirt. I dissected the tulle-skirt topic here a couple of months ago (love-love-love the white-polkadot-tulle-skirt from Chloe Fall’13) and was planning to schedule this post shortly after. That did not happen (sorry!) as my life over the last two months … Continue reading

Pink Wallpaper

I’m moving house (FINALLY) in beginning of October and have found myself day-dreaming about whimsical ideas how to sneak a little bit of pink into the apartment (without  notifying my-not-so-big-pink-fan-boyfriend). My mind is going in full-romantic-mood; I’m thinking a pink floral asia inspired wall in the bedroom, white lightweight blowy curtains (perhaps even a bed canopy?) and … Continue reading

My Swedish Summer House – The heart of the house

Second part of my mini-interior series “My Swedish Summer House” takes us the main floor where the heart of the house is; the living room goes in white and navy with the most comfy sofas (impossible to stay awake in); the dining room is furnished with an old Gustavian dining group that was given to … Continue reading

Pastel Interior Inspiration

My second post here at Shoebox-Living was about all the lovely pastel houses around Hong Kong. Last weekend – while visiting my sister in London – I stumbled onto a street with gorgeous-pastel-painted-houses. Unfortunately, my camera ran out of battery so could not document all the sweet shades and detailing, but luckily found a close … Continue reading
