We spotted this quaint flat near Norrmälarstrand (central Stockholm) this week on Swedish real estate site Fantastic Frank. The original hardwood parquay floors, mullioned windows and paneled doors have been preserved during its' recent renovation.
Earlier this year we were a little sad to hear the news that Ideas Magazine was closing it's doors and so when we heard wind that the South African DIY magazine had started up again, we were thrilled! The people involved with the magazine got together, dried their tears, and launched a crowd funder through Thundafund, set up home offices and are back! With the same people behind the helm, same paper, and same content, their return issue is a delightful treat of all things you've come to know and love from Ideas Magazine. Let's take a sneak peek!

A few years back we posted this downloadable Spring Floral Desktop Wallpaper photographed and generously shared by the talented Jodi McKee for the first day of spring. And although it was actually five years ago, it seems the photo is still so relevant if not even more so today. So to kick off the season of spring today, we thought we'd re-post it, with links to download it again. Click here for all the different sizes for whatever size your screen is. Happy Spring!
Here's a throwback recipe perfect for St. Patrick's Day. We loved this chocolate cookie recipe and vanilla ice cream combo that we posted last year, and the lucky charms add a fun Irish twist. Colour the ice cream green (or blue - as seen here), and you'll be ready to party with the best of them! Check out the recipe below.
It's been a while since we did a post on Etsy Finds for the home, and we couldn't help notice all the fun things being made there as of late through our good ol' Etsy Page (do you visit those pages anymore)? We almost forgot about them. As well, from following Etsy on Instagram. Lots of good finds to be had. Here's just a few that have caught our eye. By the way, do you miss the Etsy Treasury as much as we do?
About this time of year we really get the craving for some fresh plants or flowers in our space. Spring is almost upon us and with blossoms starting to bud, it's always nice to bring some green inside. What has been on our radar as of late are clear vessels. Although not new, we've been seeing this trend transforming for a few years now, from rooting plants in water, revealing roots in soil, and the old favourite of sprouting bulbs, we're still loving this botanical look that only seems to be getting more clearer through the years. Lately we've been seeing thought, different shaped glass vessels to hold them. Let's take a look
IKEA is launching an array of new products this April and we're quite excited about what we see. There's a mid-century vibe happening with some of them as well a range of multi-functional furniture in an airy industrial style designed for the ever-changing home. There’s also a lot of news on the storage front, from a shelving series to hallway solutions, including a textile wardrobe and storage baskets. Let's check it out!
Last year around this time the camellias were so beautiful and our tree was literally dripping with blossoms. This year things are a little different, with our cooler winter, they are just starting to bud. But last year photographed them for a keepsake and thought too they would make beautiful wrapping paper for spring. So we created a set of papers for download and we thought we'd bring them back for a best of post.
Have you seen IKEA's new kitchen cabinets, KUNGSBACKA? The stylish fronts are developed in collaboration with the design studio Form Us With Love, which has developed an entirely recycled material. The doors and fronts consist of a core of recycled industrial timber equipped with a sheet of recycled bottles.
