My new wall balls by Vitra

I saw these wall balls by Vitra for the first time this summer at a friend's house and thought they were so cool. Now I am so happy to have five bright magnets of my own! They resemble Vitra's Hang it all coat hanger in walnut that I bought some years ago. I will use these on my refrigerator as a splash of colour in my kitchen but I noticed that they look equally good to place anywhere around your home where you can fasten magnets. Today's tip! Design in a nutshell!


Visiting Hammarby Sjöstad

This home is for sale in Hammarby Sjöstad, Stockholm, by Fantastic Frank. What I want to save to my inspiration folder in these pictures is the Superfront cabinet. Superfront is making front designs that fit exactly on Ikea's Bestå cabinets. As you know I have a Bestå cabinet in my living room and sometimes I play with the thought to replace the doors with Superfront's doors to make it look a bit more exclusive, new and personal. I would not dare to go for bluish-grey fronts and sides as above, but if I had another hallway than now, I think this colour would look very good there as well. I love the fish-scale pattern and, not the least, the handles.
Other things in these pictures that I like are the black candlestick and the Bless-this-house-mat in brass. And what a pity that the Sinnerlig jug by Ilse Crawford is only available on spot in the Ikea stores, not in the webshop. I just see a pink, blue and green flower arrangement in it...


New lamp

Hi from the blog shadow! I did not at all plan to be away this long, but suddenly the twenty-four hours were not quite enough for me and I had no choice. New work load and tasks, some trips and long days with tiredness in the evenings. On top of this it has been my birthday and I have fixed a bit for some small celebrations coming up. Besides this my bike has gotten stolen, which has, until now, been quite a rare thing in our little, safe town. So everything has been a mess at all fronts, but today I managed to catch up a bit with everything that has piled up lately. The home is super clean and all post-it notes have been gone through.

I have so missed sitting down at the computer, blogging, surfing around, reading newspapers and blogs. I think that is my kind of revival to cope with my everyday life otherwise. I do not like a hectic life style and need those slow moments in-between.

I tried to take some new photos with my new system camera, but, gosh, those settings! I need to practise more. Anyway no time for that now so here you can see some of my birthday gifts. A loveable, black Gubi lamp and a new book. I planned to have the lamp on my desk, but as the shade was quite low I thought it suits the bedside table better, to direct the light only on my book pages when reading, without lightening up the whole room.
Happy weekend!
