Vintage Details in a Danish Home

A beautiful Danish home, from the 1920's, in neutral tones, a lot of art and vintage findings.
This first photo is a perfect "vignette". 
Dark wood (which I'm loving these days) against white walls, black and grey details... simplicity. And the word RO, that sums the atmosphere of the space, and can be translated into English as tranquillity.

Green Inspiration

Because little, shy, green leaves are slowing starting to show on the trees
... And that means it's finally Spring. 
Took it's sweet little time!

Sankt Oberholz

Today, during my morning routine of drinking coffee while going through Pinterest, I ended up discovering Sankt Oberholz. I'm glad I did. 

Sankt Oberholz is a building from the late 19th century, located at the Rosenthaler Platz - Berlin, that comprises a restaurant, a co-working bureau, two apartments for rent and their own unconventional publisher. The whole site is worth exploring. I particularly love the "blog" tab (or the "lost and found" from the restaurant tab) where you can read about all sorts of objects that costumers from the restaurant forget or leave behind. These objects are described in the most funny way, through a whimsical talent for stating the obvious and coming to, sometimes, unexpected conclusions.

I leave you now with some photos from the apartments, where the historical features of the building  meet contemporary design in a very sober (tempted to say masculine) way.

"Crystal clear lakes, palm-lined beaches, historical sights and landmarks – this is what you won’t find at Rosenthaler Platz."

Wishing everyone a great weekend... I'll go back to read some more of those "lost and founds"!

Scandinavian style - Bright apartment in Sweeden

I've been struggling for a while trying to decide if I wanted to post about this apartment or not. But I kept finding my self going through all these photos, over and over again. It's the styling of it that puzzles me. There are many little decoration elements that I don't like, I can even say that I find them hideous. But then there are other details that work perfectly for me. And I love the space, the brightness, the white from ceiling to floor...and those double doors. And the general image looks actually very cosy to me. So I'm still confused but I'm sharing it anyway...

Because I'm feeling that laziness that is so typical of a Sunday, I decided to simply sit here, with my cup of coffee, and make a wish list from the newly launched MERCI web-shop. 
Be happy, those who cannot live in Paris, MERCI is now on-line and shipping worldwide.

the paper bag: just because I like it!

black and white masking tape: because you can never have to much of it

porcelain spoon: nice prop for food photography

butterfly storage box: to put some order in my work space

Brooklyn tins wallpaper samples: lots of possibilities to be creative with these. 
Also nice as photos background.

Table Cloths and Weekend Memories

When I was growing up, Sunday was the day for the family lunch reunion at my grandmother's. Big southern family around big old table, you can picture it right? But kids weren't allowed at the table until the grown ups were done eating (we didn't really all fit at the dinning table so the little ones ate in the kitchen). But afterwards we would go find our respective mums and sit on their laps listening to the adults conversations. A table in disarray and full of stains is what I remember most about those times. The conversations didn't always make sense to us, but being there, in the presence of all our loved ones, arguing and laughing, was very comforting. So what better way to wish you all a great weekend than sharing these printed table cloths that evoke those childhood memories. 

This collection was designed by Marion Peeters, and it's called "48 hours" precisely because it's about weekend memories.
