Home Inspiration-Swedish Style

My passion for Swedish decor goes a while back when I had my first apartment and decided to paint & distress all my furniture white - ignoring the constant banter from my friends commenting that I myself was going to end up looking white too ! Years on I still get just as passionate when sourcing for inspiration and come across lovely images such as the ones above collected for my scrap book... aren't they so dreamy?
Images are from Debi Treloar, Living etc and via sfgirlbyday.
Have a lovely weekend whatever your plans are :-)

25 Foot Flower Sculptures

Mrng! I thought I'd share with you this image of the installation called The Roses by artist Will Ryman which is currently on Park Avenue, New York. The sculpture consists of 30 giant pink and red roses, along with bees, ladybugs and beetles. I can't wait to find time to discover this amazing city !

Cupcakes For Tea?

As some of you might know by now I love the English tradition of an afternoon cup of tea and cake, although I think this is a more visual feast and a time to catch up with friends than anything else!
This week I was thrilled when I had a request from a client to shoot cupcakes; I've spent all weekend taking hundreds of images of these lovely cakes I bought from a very talented lady that makes them, Vanilla Rose Cakes- it has been a difficult task not to fall into the temptation to have one or two!!
Having finished my task we are off to see our afternoon Sunday movie, The King's Speech.
I hope your weekend is a good one so far :-)

Morning Frost

Although I tend to complain many times about the weather and missing my sunshine, I must admit I do like the fact that we have four seasons and what they all bring to nature. The colors, textures, sounds , smells, temperature are part of what define each season. This morning as I was having my coffee contemplating out of the window I saw this lovely frost captured by my plants and got me thinking how much garden needs TLC ....mmm..How long for Springtime? :-)

New Logo

I'm pleased to announce that I finally organized myself and got myself a logo! I know it has taken its time but I had to find one that I loved ! Luckily I stumbled this amazing designer called Michelle from Swept Away Designs based in the United States. Her portfolio has a great variety of lovely & very creative designs to suit all types of businesses . You can check more of her work here .
