Spring Decorating via Skona hem

Last Monday, I featured a Scandinavian designer and it looks like, quite by accident (well almost), I am back in the land of Swedish goodness.

I’m sure many of you love the Swedish magazine, Skona hem…what’s not to love? If you haven’t checked it out…you should. Can’t understand a word but the images are breathtaking!

I was drawn to this article about re-decorating for Spring, using what you have. I love the creative ideas and the colors are so fresh!

How gorgeous is this floral head board? It’s made from MDF board and covered with fabric! Instant garden in your bedroom!

Simple Ikea lights and glass shelves make the blooming background functional.

This whimsical arrangement was made using wire and colored paper. So pretty and that cobalt blue paint is rather stunning!

Little vintage doorknobs make for an instant jewelry display…

and this re-finished vintage chair couldn’t have more personality!

Remember to use Google Translate if you actually want to understand this fabulous magazine. I’m seriously considering learning Swedish.

Hope your Monday is going smoothly!

xo,

Home office makeover

For the past 48 hours, we’ve been hard at work redoing my home office…or as I like to lovingly refer to it – my studio. For months, I had put off re-designing it. Not really sure why? I think  I was scared I would make a mistake but finally I worked up the courage and tackled it. Chris devoted some of our budget to it and voila – a NEW creative space for Grace & I!!! Check it out…

Now Grace and I have a space to craft together. She loves her new “big girl” table!

The decor is a blend of new pieces from Ikea and old items I’ve collected from various antique and thrift stores.  I like the contrast between the clean white lines and the imperfection of the found objects.

Now this room feels like me!

Do you have a special place in your home where you create?

Have a beautiful Wednesday!

xo,

p.s. Don’t forget…we are off to Greece on Wednesday! If you missed our other “trips” catch up here and here.
