My new interior obsession: Low shelves


One of my flatmates is moving out in a few months and she is taking A LOT of stuff with her. This means that I can finally declutter and decorate the house to my (our.. Emelie is involved too) liking, and I am so excited.
We have had a few discussions already and have agreed to keep it white and scandinavian inspired (no surprise there!).
Because of this I have obviously spent a stupid amount of time on Pinterest and IKEA for inspiration.
My new interior obsession are low bookcases/shelves. Why low? Well, let’s have a look:

See what I mean?! I like the idea of being able to store books and magazines but also have a place for plants, artwork and candles.
I found these on IKEA and think they are great options:

Billy, £54

Kallax, £30

Kallax, £39

What do you think of these shelves? And what is your latest interior obsession? 🙂


The perfect plant pot!


The other week when me and Tom wandered around Shoreditch I finally found the perfect pot at The Goodhood store.dsc07610-copy dsc07611-copyI love love love it.

Look how pretty it sits on my bedside table with my gold water can from Stockholm! 🙂

Btw. Did you know that the snake plant (pictured above) is a great plant to have in your bedroom? According to various websites they absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen at night – sooo I’m basically hoping for an oxygen boost while I sleep!
Here’s a great website if you want to have some tips on how to care for a snake plant: Epic Gardening



Catch up at Pinchos and apartment goals


I’ve always said; once you move country you truly realise who your real friends are. I’ve moved countries 4 times by now and my circle is getting smaller and smaller which I genuinely don’t mind as I only want real and good hearted people around me.
I don’t have that many friends left in my hometown as many now live in bigger cities or abroad but on Sunday evening we met up with a few who are 🙂 Anja, her bf Tom and my childhood friend Miriam met us at Pinchos, a newly opened restaurant in Scala teatern, Karlstad’s local theatre. It has a quite weird circus theme and it is apparently the world’s first app-restaurant meaning everything you order is via their app. Once the food is ready you get a little ping on the app that it is ready to be collected. Super simple.

The food was good and it was simply a different and cool experience.
After dinner Miriam went home and the rest of us walked back to Anja and Tom’s amazingly beautiful apartment. High ceilings, big windows and white walls. The ultimate dream for anyone who’s interested in architecture and interior. DSC04972 copyDSC04974 copyDSC04973 copyDSC04975 copyWhilst the boys watched football me and Anja drank tea and talked. Such a good ending to the day!



Hidden gems in Bermondsey


After visiting the White Cube we walked around the area and found some pretty amazing interior shops. Most was second hand/antique and prices varied quite a lot!
The London Second Hand Store had everything from beds to desks, bowls, candle holders and book shelves.
Look at that two seated armchair?! So amazing. 
Random bits and bobs everywhere
Beautiful carafes and glassesA stunning wooden world globe! Would look amazing in a modern home, don’t you think? I love the mix of modern and second hand.

After the second hand store we walked further down the road called Ropewalk and found the Maltby Street Market. We unfortunately arrived when all the food stalls were closing, but I can’t wait to go back on a dry and sunny day!
We found another interior gem called Lassco. They had the most amazing lights and antique furniture on display mixed with new designer pieces. 

So many knobs!!Olive oil, jam and pasta products from Greece

Beautiful sailmen-inspired garments and fabrics for sewing
My current obsession; candles! If only you could smell this! Reminds me of my Jo Malone candle that also has hints of sandalwood and musk – only cheaper.
This baby was £10 and burn time is approx 45 hours, sounds good to me!

I’d highly recommend taking the short walk from London Bridge or tube to Bermondsey station and wander around. They have plenty of cafes and restaurants to make a day out of it!



Nigel’s Birthday


Last weekend he rented a super cool apartment in Hackney from some super cool dude and we had the most relaxing day filled with food “obviously“, movies (the holiday, is there a better sunday-movie?) and long conversations. 

I made the French Toast Bake again, this time with hazelnut milk! Couldn’t tell a difference.
In the afternoon the boys took over the kitchen. Here’s Nigel and Pharao 🙂
Such a lovely little corner kitchen!The apartment looked all types of cozyMr Hat joined the party and made our secret but famous drink.. Then it was time for food!

There’s beautiful Karla on the corner too!

I’ve got a feeling one of us might rent this apartment again.. Nigel found it on Airbnb 🙂
