OYOY Catalogue

These images are from the new OYOY catalogue, a Danish company of interior design that mixes Scandinavian and Japanese influences. I really like their simple and clean design but the thing I really love is the names of some of their products like: the hokus-pokus bag and the pif paf puf hanging storage. Sounds so playful!

Scandinavian style inspiration

photo by Tim Wahlfried   .   via Bo Bedre

This is Scandinavian style at it's best! 
An open space that includes: kitchen, dining and living room. White as the base colour. Lots of light coming from some huge uncovered windows. Great classic pieces of Danish design - the egg chair and the 7 chairs by Arne Jacobsen, the PH5 lamp - mixed with an family heirlooms like the cabinet that was designed and made by the home owners great grandmother. And art on the walls, which is one of the biggest trends of interior design this year. 
I am stunned and hope my readers like it too!

Giveaway Win!

During the Christmas holidays I decided to participate in a few wonderful "giveaways" that some of my favourite blogs were holding. I normally feel a bit shy about participating in these things or even just when leaving comments on other people's blogs (I know!... it's silly) but there were so many gorgeous things that I would love to have for my home that I just couldn't resist. And man!... Am I glad I didn't! I ended up winning two of them! 
I'll talk about the second one later (when I receive it), but the first one was held by the Cherry Blossom blog, a blog that belongs to a girl from Norway, with flawless taste, and where I go to for a dose of daily Scandinavian inspiration. 

And yesterday I received my prize in a beautiful package from Story North...

The tea towel is from by nord and the mugs are a design by Filippa K for Rörstrand.
Aren't they just perfect?

Night Stand Inspiration

Reading in bed, before falling asleep, is a ritual I have since I first learned how to read. I have some problems with sleep, actually, and reading helps me to shut my brain down and slowly pass into the land of dreams. If I skip that step I seriously risk being awake all night (mostly thinking about ideas for new posts!). My ideal bedroom is white (grey is also acceptable) and empty but two things must be present: a place to put my book down when I close it half asleep, and a soft light I can turn of without having to get out of bed. 
Today's post is inspired by this reading ritual and I focused on some great ideas for an original night stand combined with working place type lamps.

1 Year

My little blog is celebrating 1 year! Before I finally settled on a name and a content for it I had several failed experiences, and in result I'm not exactly sure when Life as a Moodboard was "born". But it was around this time last year and I would like to celebrate it by telling you a little bit of  why I decided to do it. 

life as a moodboard
the beginning 

(OK! it is not that epic as I made it sound...) I had been living in Denmark for a little less than a year and apart from going to language school I didn't do much else and had a lot of free time at home. The shock of moving to a different country was fading away, my brain was getting mushy and I desperately needed something to exercise my creativity and to allow me to learn new things. 
A blog! why not?...that would be a real challenge. 
I decided to focus, mainly, on three themes that I was drawn to: Interior Design, Photo Styling and Cooking. And I was hoping that by looking at other people's work and other blogs I could bring those different "worlds" inside my own home and my own life... my blog should be a platform for the moodboard/inspirations I use in my everyday life. Not to much to ask! And I had no idea what I was doing...(still don't)

I've dedicated most of my interior Design posts to the Scandinavian made sense since I now live in a Scandinavian country... and made an effort to learn a bit more about Danish design in particular. And that  influenced the way I began "building" my own home

Inspired by the wonderful work of talented photographers and stylists I gathered the courage to start taking my own pictures... to experiment, to learn and to mature my photo skills - I'm far, far away, from being a professional but I think I made some progress and, most important of all, I enjoy it.

I have shared  recipes I found on the internet as well as traditional dishes from my country and my family. I always try the recipe and take my own photos, and those posts are probably the ones were I allow  myself a little bit more freedom in my writing and therefore they are the more personal ones. I even discovered I love baking! I made bread for the first time and shared that...well... slightly bumpy experience. And it was so much fun!

Now, I am one of those people that never seem to finish or go through with anything, and I lose interest in things pretty quickly. So when I began this adventure, for the first couple of months, I kept having the same thought in the back of my mind: "when are you going to give up?". 
That is why this 1 year mark is so important to me... I didn't quit, I'm still very much interest and excited about it, and even though there are days when I feel a little less inspired, I still love what I'm doing! Ha!

Minimalistic Fairy Tales

After taking down all Christmas decorations, I ended up with 3 empty black paper clips hanging on the wall. Since they are placed right next to the TV, I thought it would be nice to get images or posters inspired by movies or TV series (I follow and re-watch tons of TV series). I haven't found exactly what I want, yet, but during my search I came across this great minimalistic posters, designed by Christian Jackson and inspired by fairy tales, and I just couldn't resist posting them here.

I grew up with fairy tales. My mother and grandmother would spend hours, everyday, telling me stories in hope I would get distracted enough to eat. I still love fairy tales and I love how of these images transmit a story with only one or a few elements and how some of them capture a bit of their "dark side".
