How to add a special touch to your nursery!

.beautiful nursery bedding.
Walk into your own bedroom, your child’s room or the newly prepared nursery for that bundle of joy you are expecting. The bed or crib is the most prominent piece in each.

Luckily it is easy to choose a safe as well as stylish kids bed or baby crib these days and you can place a lovely piece of furniture in those rooms. However, there is one detail that will make everything even more lovely – nursery bedding!

The right set of sheets can really be the special detail. The item to put the room into the light you want it to be. I am sure you noticed this before. Remember the last time your favourite sheets were on your bed and you walked into your bedroom? I am pretty sure the whole room had a different atmosphere.

And that is why I am so excited to share today’s find with you. Because Meredith makes some adorable nursery bedding. In her shop* she has a fantastic selection of crib sheets, moses basket and changing pad covers as well as child bedding.

And everything comes in some adorable prints and colours, made from organic cotton:

Personally I find it very hard to select a favourite but the rainbow prints* are definitely gorgeous and such a delight to sleep on. And it is especially lovely that they come in blue tones* and green tones* too.

And one thing that really stands out and gets some extra points – the moses basket/ bassinet sheets*. Because it is really not that easy to find some cute ones in those sizes!

Back to School 2019 – shoes for mini and maxi!

 

Back to School shoes

Hi! How are you? I am realising that some of you are already sending their children back to school these days… To be honest I am very happy that we still have a bit and only go back in September.

(I never really got my head around the mid August school return during our 5 years Sweden. It always felt like we were robbed out of our summer break…)

Any way, today I have my Back to School shoes selection ready for you. Which I hope still comes in handy for your family. Because I separated the age groups again (same as for the Back to School backpacks) and there are shoes for mini, maxi, and teen!

I also added a black pair to each year group in case you need to shop uniform.

What else did look our for?

For school shoes I want something simple, shoes that are easy to put on as well as to take off, that are somehow sturdy, and of course something stylish. There are shoes for boys and girls, as well as some unisex pairs! All together, it sounds easier than it is and the selection did take a fair amount of time. However I am sure I found the perfect Back to School shoes for our little and not so little ones:

 

Back to School shoes

Back to School shoes for Mini:

1. Cute pair of mini Vans* with velcro fastening.

2. Cute, girly and very sturdy as well as comfortable! Chelsea boots* in rose gold!

3. I love the twin series from Camper and I think they are especially cute for the very young ones in school.

4. Cool sneakers in fun colours are always a god idea.

 

Back to School shoes

Back to School shoes for Maxi:

1. A classic – Dr Martens – also for little ones. A shoe that is nearly impossible to destroy.

2. The sneaker* of the moment. Consciously made and available in many colour ways by now… however this version remains my favourite!

3. Another school shoe classic* that I adore and even had for my girls before we needed uniforms.

4. Great short bootie* with lovely details that is available in blue and green too.

 

 

Back to School shoes

Back to School shoes for Tweens:

1. Never out of style, very comfortable and when you look closer you will see the glittery details of these boots*.

2. All leather velcro sneakers in navy!

3. Comfort and style in one with these cool trainers*.

4. Not a huge fan of the bulky shoe trend but those are actually quite cool.

A lush and light filled family space in Gothenburg!

A lush and light filled family space in Gothenburg!

Hej from Gothenburg and this gorgeous family space in the beautiful neighbourhood called Haga.

And what a wonderful light filled space this is. It is stunning and I love how the old owners gave it this lush look with lots of  greenery. All rooms are bathed in light through the beautiful high windows and up to those high ceilings, that are full of original features.

In brief, Haga is a bit ‘the village in the middle of town’ and the car-free streets are lined with small cafes and shops. A charming area of traditional wood buildings and cobbled streets.

But right now we want to see this awesome family place, because it is so inspiring and inviting:

In essence, this beautiful bedroom with an original wooden floor, rosettes and the famous William Morris wallpaper is a dream!

Those shelves are probably a must in every Scandinavian interior! Not so surprising since they are very practical, very ‘chic’ and just never look outdated…

Together with the Vintage desk and chair combo, it makes for a really lovely kids corner!

Together with: Shelf system*, wooden toy mixer*, storage baskets*, Children’s bed*& rug*

Imagine sitting here for your meals! Close your eyes and just imagine…

And totally in love with that corner!

And I am so intrigued to finally go ahead and get some new chairs for around our own dining table. Totally love the idea of having a beautiful and mixed selection of chairs.

Since we already have lots of colourful plates, glasses and other tableware that are mostly coming ‘alone’ which makes the setting always fun. Maybe we should go wild around the table too…

What do you think?
