When it comes to holidays, Christmas is my number one holiday. It’s all about dreams, hopes, togetherness and peace. The most important things in life I think, but it’s also the perfect mental goal to survive these dark months before Christmas. Something to look forward to and plan for.

Writing this post and going through the pages at Ellos, really puts me in the perfect pre-Christmas mood. Creating a cozy, inspiring and most of all inviting environment is extremely valuable and important to me. Especially, since I’m brought up in a home where my mother has made a big effort when it comes to home decor. It’s a part of my childhood I remember clearly. My mother is one of those mums who really enjoyed pimping the home for holidays, therefore I want to do the same for my children and of course myself.

Since I’m obsessed with interior design and esthetics in general, I thought I’d make some mood boards for you to get inspired by. My Christmas colors are not only the classic Christmas colors, but I love to mix soft pink with burgundy and different colors of grey. Details in brass brings warmth into the home, so that is for sure a very important detail I like.

These mood boards mirror exactly how I’ve built my entire interior at home. I have a few tips that I use myself, to change up our interior into a cozier more winter-ish environment. For example, I love to keep the base light, but exchange our sheets for charcoal colored sheets. It instantly gives a completely different feeling. Also, rich velvet makes everything feel much softer and more luxurious. Heavier materials and tones as well as more fabric in general, is what I opt for. So easy and effortless but makes a huge difference!

I just had to include this white (comes in other colors as well) bed vail, since I have it myself, and it is the eye catcher of my children’s room. I put it over my children’s bunk bed, but it works just as well over any bed, couch or in a cozy fairy tale corner. This is a must-have!

Gifts are of course a big part of Christmas and I love that, but sometimes it’s difficult to know what to buy, since so many of us have everything we need and more. Nevertheless, I love giving and I love giving things that are luxurious and usable at the same time. My go-to gifts are sheets, new crisp and soft towels, table linen, candles, soap and so on. Gifts like these never fail and even the smallest gifts become so much nicer in a nice wrapping. This year, I’m going to order this gorgeous grey wrapping paper and tie a pine tree branch with gold and red velvet ribbon.

Find everything on my mood boards along with much more here at the Ellos Christmas department! Do like me, and do yourself a favor and order some gifts for your loved once and yourself already, so you don’t have to stress so much closer to Christmas :)!

4 easy tips for the home

interior,1 April 2018

When I got these fun antique palm tree inspired lamps for our bedroom I decided to give our entire bedroom a facelift. I got wild and chose these nature themed sheets along with these cozy grey pillows and blanket. The entire bedding is from Gant and I’m surprised over how much a little pattern and color can do! It doesn’t require much to get a completely new and fresh impression at home, therefore I wanted to show you in case you’re in need of an easy pick me up at home too!?

I also made my office space a little bit nicer since my daughter needs more peace and quiet for her arts and crafts. These posters from Desenio instantly made it more inviting and inspiring for both of us.

Those of you who follow my Instagram Stories might already know that my dear friend and photographer Juuli made me this torso. It was my 30th birthday present and it has come to be one of the most precious pieces of art I own. I think it suits our style perfectly and it feels very meaningful to me. In case you happen to have talented artists and friends around you I highly recommend asking them if perhaps you could get/buy a piece to bring home. I love it when art feels personal and meaningful. That’s the whole purpose I think. 

A little tip is to put a leaf or two in water instead of flowers. They last forever and bring freshness and a bit of contrast to any space. Very easy, inexpensive and beautiful :).
