a little lamp

Sometimes interior shots moves me. Look at that little lonely dangling ceiling lamp. Like someone moved into a new home and just hanged it there for the time being. And how good it looks in all its littleness. Conscious mishap.

Obligat mutualism

I am in love with this wallpaper, Obligat mutualism, by Ida Arnfelt. It shows the interaction between the globe flower and the globe flower fly.

5 years later

An  unvoluntary toilet seat study. I wanted to show the new sink and the drape hiding the dirty laundry. This bathroom was an unisolated cellar storage room when we moved here. My husband chopped the concrete floor and filled two truck platforms with gault before laying the limestone floor. We tiled and painted the walls, intalled a shower and a built-in tub. A couple of years later a laundry bench, the toilet seat and the washing machine. This week (five years since we started to use the shower) we suddenly found ourself buying this Bråviken sink combined with Grundtal legstand. It's a broad sink with two taps and according to the kids that's a sensation worth telling every visitor. "Come look, we have two taps". I don't blame them. I am bragging about it here. And I forgot to mention the new mirror. Sweet everyday luxury.

tile stove

I love the lack of ornaments on this tile stove. And the light blue color. They are usually more decorated and white. Like ours.

I can't seem to find the time to blog. To much other things to do, read, plan, create and think about. I miss it though. Both posting and visiting my favourite blogs. Anyway, October is here and around the house we are changing to warmer comforters, buying lots of candles, changing the light bulbs in our lamps, cooking chanterelles and lighting fires in the tile stove. Also enjoying our cats love of warmth. When the temperature falls outside and sun warm floors are long gone they come crawling into our beds. Purring. There is so much to love about Fall.
