This really gives me the chills. Eller, Det tilltalar min monokroma ådra. Min bohemiska monokroma ådra. All that… Oh, no I can’t handle it. I cannot contain myself! There is glass, there is mirror, there are sculls, velvet pillows, ethnic elements, a mix of design classics, a modern kitchen in an old house, and wooden floors (some fishbone!). And all in black and white. A match of material, texture and style made in heaven. My monochrome bohemian heart skips several beats. I could live in this home – the home of Hanne Berzant, founder of By Nord Copenhagen.With love,
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.

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.
