Wall-hanging Love

It is a little late for this but... happy New Year everyone. Hope you had a wonderful holiday and I am sorry you are (most likely) back at work today. I feel your pain, but let's try to get through this together...

To kick off the new year I wanted to revel in my love for, and obsession with, a wall hanging I got for Christmas. Walls are something I am still coming to grips with and having things hanging from them is something I find quite challenging. Not a particular lover of a picture wall, or of a lone piece of art in a frame, hanging somewhere awkwardly and alone, I'm never quite sure what to do. The pictures you do chose to hang also say so much about you, or at least they probably should, so I find it can be quite pressured to select something. An insight into my deepest internal struggles there.

Anyway, when I saw this Elkeland wall hanging from Ferm Living I knew it was exactly what I have been looking for...

Made with 100% merino wool in the Danish woodland
 
Over my bed in a sort of dream-catcher-esque vibe

I love the creamy colour against Farrow and Ball's Dimpse and the brass bars pick out the side lamps. What do you think? Stay tuned for a full bedroom renovation reveal coming soon. As a teaser, about 4 months ago it looked like this...

A bijou Copenhagen apartment packed with style

Today I am really excited to launch a new section of the blog which showcases amazing real homes. I don't know about you, but perving on other people's interiors is something I spend way too much time doing and there is no better way to get inspired, and start to pull together ideas for your own home, than by looking at other people's.

Today's home is the most amazing apartment in Copenhagen, owned by the incredibly stylish Kristine...






 
 


 


Isn't it gorgeous? Some things I love include the yellow patterned wallpaper in the living room, the fabulous wishbone chairs in the dining room and the super useful, and beautiful open shelving in the kitchen. There definitely also needs to be a mention of the shoe rack in the bedroom, not to mention those gorgeous striped floor throughout.

I think the combination of traditional, almost French inspired pieces, are expertly mixed with modern Danish design - definitely some ideas here that I full intend to steel! It also shows how you can make a small space feel bright and packed full of style.

You can actually book to stay in this wonderful slice of Denmark if you are planning a trip soon. It's listed on AirBNB here.

What do you think? Which is your favourite room?
