Today I thought I’d pop in to tell you about my latest interior addition. I found this lovely rug in Zara Home and put it on my christmas wish list. My mom kindly bought it for me and it is just what I hoped it would be.
It’s made out of wool and the “fringe” is really thick and long which makes it super soft and fluffy, the perfect thing to greet your feet in the morning.
The bedroom is really starting to come together now. I have a few things left before all the main things are in place and I can do a little bedroom tour. I’m missing a full length mirror, a pair of bedside tables and maybe some curtains. I have struggled to find bedside tables that I like and that go with the style of the bedroom so I have decided to make some myself. I probably won’t get around to it until the beginning of summer but when I do I’ll try to pop up a DIY post all about it here on the blog.
Hope you are having a great Friday and I’ll talk to you soon!
Christmas Day is less than two weeks away (there are now three candles burning in the candleholder above) and our apartment is starting too look quite festive. Tomorrow we’re buying our christmas tree and the decor will be complete but until then I thought I’d give you a mini christmas home tour.
Let’s start off in the living room. I’ve gone for a neutral color scheme with pops of forrest green and burgundy. Most of the decorations are some sort of light source but to be honest I feel like that is what creates a festive atmosphere. That and scents, so naturally I have a scented candle here. This one is from & Other Stories and it is their 2015 fall/winter scent. What really sold me on this was the gorgeous pot it comes in with the dark green glaze and as the color might suggest it has a woodsy scent.
In the bedroom I’ve gone for white and grey. I don’t know how it is in the rest of the world but in Sweden most homes have some sort of advent star in their windows. This is a classic paper star but there are also ones in brass, copper or even wood.
To match the star I also got this string light for the bed to make it extra festive. The sheets are from H&M Home last year but they have some similar ones this year too.
I also just had to show you my chocolate advent calendar. It is the prettiest one I’ve ever seen and it acts as a Christmas decoration on its own. The chocolate figures inside are three-dimensional and oh so delicious.
Lastly I’m giving you a little sneak peak of my bar cabinet setup. We are throwing the christmas festivities at ours this year and I thought I’d show you how I plan on setting the table and give you a full tour of the bar as we get closer to the day.
I hope you are all having a lovely December so far and I’ll talk to you soon!
