Today I truly feel it’s a perfect day for it to be raining. Felt tired the last couple of days, followed by a slight headache. Waking up to a calm dripping on the windowsill in a dark room from the cloud covered sky outside is my kind of perfect on days like these. The silence and refreshment of rainy days. The revival of plants, how greenery gets even more green. I like that. Considering taking a walk. A bit of pluviophile [(n) a lover of rain; someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days] I am. The slightly grayer whites and greenish look of this home – the home of Artilleriet store’s owners Christian and Björn, fits perfectly in today’s mood and my resent green state of mind. Natural, monochrome and peaceful.With love,
This is what I love about blogging. The collecting of beautiful imagery. The dreaming. The bottomless source of inspiration of looking at pictures. I get carried away imagining what my dream house would look like. Sometimes I’m lost for hours. There’s always those interiors that leave a special mark somehow. Those really beautiful homes that you just can’t forget. Interiors that are stuck on your retina forever. I may forget them some time, but they’re always there mapped somewhere in my memory for a potential future project. They’re also the interiors that are marked with dogears in my magazines, so that one knows just where to return to when time comes. This home here is such a place. The home of Malin Persson and her Italian husband Damiano and their three kids. I first saw it in the October issue of Swedish Elle Decoration 2014 – yes, marked with a dogear it is, both in the magazine and in my brain. This is my dream house, captured on 14 pages. Big spacious rooms, big furniture, big decorations; just how I like it. And that subtle monochrome look, with some greenish blue hues that I’ve been particularly attracted to lately.

”I am drawn by the northern nature. The waters, the flora, colours and the calmness that surrounds it. Everywhere I look, I see beautiful structures and beautiful contrasts that enhance one another.”
The words of artist Trine Holbæk. And they fit so well. Something touches a soft spot in me. Is it the subtle blue, like a never-ending sea? The splashes of water? Or the uninterrupted calmness? A sense of silence, perhaps. Maybe it’s an innate attraction to nature we Scandinavians possess. I’m drawn to the blue hues, but also to the faint colour of pink in the hydrangeas and the perfectly fitted Series 7 chair by Arne Jacobsen. Tranquility that is.

Today we have a day off. I’m sitting by the windowsill, looking over the park bathing in the gazing sun outside. And, it somehow feels like Sunday. You know when everything is calm, you’re chilling at home, looking at those light, bright, minimal, white interior pics, soaking inspiration – and sunlight, as is the case today. So, that is exactly what I’ll do – enjoy sunlight and nice, crisp interiors like these in RUM.
