STYLE FILE: THE SWEATSHIRT

I am a big fan of sweatshirts, still I have very few of them in my own wardrobe, so it is high on my “to-get-list” post-pregnancy. I recently came home from Weekday with this and thisand I’ve worn them almost every day… Something about the comfort, but also the fact that I really like how they look. Nothing easier than throwing a handsome sweatshirt on before heading out in some great spring weather! So sweatshirts are high on my list of items to add to my new, more minimalist wardrobe, and here you have some sweatshirt inspiration I’ve been hoarding.

QUICK UPDATE

Realizing it’s been some time since I last had one of my quick updates, so I thought I’d share a collection of images from my day-to-day life… Lately it has been a lot of nesting; painting for the baby bean, washing and folding baby clothes, creating a simple mobile for his Leander cot  and so on… Other than that I’ve tried my best to bring the feeling of spring into our home – through the help of flowers, we’ve tried to make Saturday a day to get out of the house for lunch {since this might get a bit harder after the arrival of the baby bean}, had a trip or two to see my family, I’ve spent countless hours cuddling with the puppy {my life would be a snore without her}…  I could go on, but instead I’ll turn it over to some images instead, enjoy!

I will do my best to make this a weekly thing, sharing is caring!

DESIGN CRAVE: THE FLAGLINE CHAIR

Today I want to share one of my greatest design craves ever, the Hans J. Wegner Flagline Chair… This is at the top of my interior wish list, based on its amazingly futuristic and simplistic design, and the fact that it seems like one of the most comfy loungers out there… If I had the space I would create a great reading nook around this amazing chair, I wouldn’t mind snuggling up with a big lambskin rug and a great book in one of these – then again, who would! At the same time, justifying the price of this piece is a killer though, I would have to end up winning the lottery or find one on auction… I’ll start the {never-ending} hunt!

SUNDAY SHARING

Well hello Sunday! Another week has passed, more quickly than usual in my eyes, might have something to do with the baby arrival date drawing closer by the minute. This week feels like it’s been the least productive week I’ve had in a long time, most of my time has been spent doing baby laundry, so much laundry so little time… Since I have very little news I’ll jump straight to the Sunday Sharing, enjoy this weeks collection of greatness!

BABY STORAGE

I’ve had more than a few changes happening to me lately, at least for the last 8 months of my life, both physically and mentally. The physical changes are all quite normal, since I am growing a human being inside my body, so changes are bound to happen, but the changes in mentality is what has got me the most fascinated. One of the big changes is that some sort of organizing gene has hit me hard! I guess it could have something to do with the realization that my life will suddenly include a lot more stuff, like tiny trousers, diapers, cool miniature shoes and toys… And in my world these items all need somewhere to call home.

We have organized a lot of the baby stuff already, clothes have been organized by size, diapers are ready for the first week home… The bouncy chair, car seat and stroller are all stacked away downstairs, ready for the arrival of the mini. But right now I am hunting for some more visible storage ideas, for example for toys, books and other items that will be kept out of the dressers we’ve got around the house.

I am really linking the idea of paper bags as storage, makes for a great {and not to time-consuming} DIY project, or one could pick up one pre-painted and ready to go from a shop… Just need to figure out where I can get a hold of some paper bags around here, preferably looking like these ones via

Or maybe I should just order a few from Tellkiddolike this amazing bear one!

I am also feeling like a couple of these cork storage boxes could make for a great addition to the home, via.

Crate shelves are great for books and tiny toys on display, unknown source. We’ve got three crate shelves we’ve added to the wall of our nursery corner, since we don’t have a full on room for the baby bean at the moment… You can check some of the nesting photos here.

 These storage bins right here give me a circus feelvia

Love this shelf, some items on display, some hidden away… via

I say yes to display shelves, especially display shelves filled with wooden robots and storm troopers, unknown source

Both me and The H agrees, we need some of these Lego storage boxes for the baby bean, via

This built-in storage solution is brilliant, and I will try my best to keep it in mind till he gets his own room {and ages a bit}, via

Storage boxes with faces, why not? via

Bring some color to your space with these sacks, via

Basket love, via

Storage on wheels, via

Brilliant wall storage, I would place this by his changing station in the bathroom, to keep the bare necessities close and ready at all times… via

INSPIRATION TRAIN: STADSHEM

I spend a lot of time hunting for inspiration, especially interior and home inspiration, and I have a couple of favorite hunting grounds. One of these hunting grounds is a collection of brilliant Scandinavian real estate sites, and today I want to share a collection of favorites from one of these sites, Stadshem. As with any other inspiration site, I can spend hours rolling through images on this one, great spaces, impeccable styling and last but not least, amazing photography. Makes me wish for a vacation flat in Sweden, maybe I’ll get one of those in the future, who knows… If that’s the case there is a high likelihood it has been found on this site… But for now, it will continue being one of my main sources for interior inspiration.

Visual indulgence time, enjoy!

How much do you crave a Swedish vacation home right now? Or maybe even a Swedish home!
