Beautiful linen clothing for small and big people

All the beautiful linen

One reason why I keep on showing you beautiful linen clothing is that it is one of my favourite fabrics. What is wool in winter is linen in summer.

Even so I actually do wear wool in summer too and linen during winter times. Just swapping for lighter knits and heavy linen for the seasons.

And when I see beautiful images that manage to show the beauty and quality of linen (or knits, but today we are talking linen… knits will be on focus after summer again) I just cannot resist. It is so great to wear, easy, always chic without being too cute or too girly. Maybe I hope to convince you step by step (in case you are not so into linen yet)… but mostly I just love to share lovely things!

So when I found this oh so inspiring shop* full of linen goods for children, home as well as women… well I was smitten right away!

 

All the beautiful linen

I think you can see why, right?

The colours, the little frills, easy to wear rompers, and the sweet bonnets* that always add a cute little detail.

Adding lovely embroidery makes it even more stunning! Loving the skirts*….

And what about green? Still a very popular colour and this shade is so lively and cool – would totally wear this dress* in my size.

All the beautiful linen for all the beautiful homes!

 

Love linen as much as I do? How about Flora & Dott or Tiny Stories – linen for babies.

Beautiful turn-of-the-century family apartment with a romantic touch

stockholm family apartment.

Hej! How are you? How about a little trip to Stockholm? I would not mind so much because I hear it is 23 and sunny. Compared to London where I am sitting behind my desk and faced with a sky that gets darker by the second…

(but I am not complaining because I am headed to Florence tomorrow and the forecast is 32)

But for now, lets stick with Stockholm and this gorgeous and very big family apartment which is in the perfect location. Which also means that it was just recently sold for a big load of money.

Look at this beautiful turn-of-the-century property, where beautiful original features meet modern touches. The great architect Andreas Gustaf Sällström actually used to live in this particular apartment.

And the ceilings are not just high, they are sky high and measure 3.10m. Probably I would feel quite small in there for once…

A very romantic children’s room that is definitely bigger than most. The details on the ceiling and above the door are adding to the sweet factor too of course!

The room even has a sofa, a big kid friendly table and lots of space for free play, dance, creativity and fun!

Situated right in the heat of the city, in the Kungsholmen neighbourhood, there are lots of restaurants, cafes and shops around.

Wow!

Insider: Maternity clothes that every future mum will adore!

storq maternity

Hello new week. And hello topic that I have not covered for ages. Maternity clothes! Sometimes we loose sight of things that are not prominent in our own lives anymore… but of course I am aware that some of my readers may add a baby to their family or are in the exciting stage of becoming a mum (parents) for the very first time.

And since I have been there four times, I think I have some things to share when it comes to maternity wear.

During the first weeks and months of your pregnancy you may be able to wear your ‘normal’ clothes and depending on your body, you may feel pretty normal in terms of shape too.

But once it is all about the belly growing and going down the ‘last weeks’ lane… I can tell you, that all you want is being comfortable. Comfortable without sporting the pyjama look! And you want to feel like yourself, because your body is changing, your belly is big but you really like to remember that you are still you! And not just a belly!

And there is one brand that ticks a lot of boxes for me: Storq!

Their collection is full of refined essentials, clothes that fit and make you feel put together. Everything is
uber-comfortable and made from fabrics that are soft and breathable using eco-friendly or natural fibers.

Plus: The brand makes nursing clothes too and some pieces do work for both, during pregnancy and after!

My favourite is the Basic Bundle. You may find the price tag a bit steep, but trust me – great basics go a long way. And you will probably live in this and just clap yourself that you went through and bought this!

Short: Stylish essentials for maternity, nursing, and parenthood. Feel like yourself again, only more comfortable.

Storq’s story: Two friends found themselves surrounded by mamas-to-be with nothing they loved to wear. The average piece of maternity wear looked nothing like the ‘regular clothes’ their friends owned.
Therefore they decided to create a few key pieces that could become something of a maternity uniform. Things you could wear year-round, things you’d always feel comfortable in and with an effortless silhouette.

Because what you wear is not only about how you look, but also how you feel.

Storq is an American company, however they offer international shipping!

I love this set of 5 wooden houses*. You can assemble them again and again and they are so versatile.

The simple Scandinavian design is perfect for design conscious families because it is not overwhelming. You can easily add toys and personal belongings without having a space that looks overloaded.

I really like this concept of subtle colors, minimalist furniture and accessories that can be used in many different ways.

‘Letting children’s imagination influence the home is something we want to encourage. The family, the children and home is of great importance to us, and this influences and shapes the way we work.’

Fridge-freezer-wooden toys

OMG! A wooden fridge*! How cool is that? (the kitchen is pretty cool too…)

alphabet-puzzle

Allover I just love wooden toys. And when they are stylish, come in great colours (yes, you can have wooden toys that are not just bland like this cool ABC puzzle* !) then I just love them even more…

A good selection is to be found here*.

Milk, aqua, a few drops of mustard, powder tones – a subtle and sweet colour palette. Also, everything is made from soft linen and washed cotton.

The brand did a little collab with Tartine et Chocolat and I love this thick and cosy linen blanket*. Or how about this tent, I think the powder pink* cover with the cute design really adds a special touch. But don’t worry if you are not a fan of pink, there is an exciting version in sage green* too.
