Romy’s Room {update}

romys room

The last time I shared pictures from Romy’s room was in November 2013. 3 1/2 years ago. And just as my girl {who will turn 10 next month!} the room changed and grew. And I thought it is time to show you a little update!

What do you think?

I shared some peeks through Instagram like here or here  and when I finally found a little cupboard not so long ago the room got a real little {does that make sense – real & little together?} make over and this is how it looks today.

I love it. I like the little Vintage pieces we found here in Sweden over the last years.

It is the smallest room in the house and actually a bit tricky to photograph. You come in and have a big built in cupboard – very practical , just not for pictures.

Let’s see if you can spot the things that changed.

lecanotrouge

lecanotrouge
I was so excited to share this post for you. Wanted to prepare it yesterday morning. Just that I spent all my yesterday with doctors.

I broke my ankle on Tuesday afternoon and got a cast yesterday. For the next six weeks.So instead of introducing you to the poetic universe of lecanotrouge, I was looking at neon lights.

But lets just talk about Laura and her friends. The moment I looked at lecanotrouge for the first time I thought: wow, such precious characters. So alive, full of stories and details.

And that’s what it is. Every character comes with a story. A beautiful story written by Laura herself. {you can read the stories in the shop with each product as well}

The best of Paul & Paula 2016

family breakfast

Two more days and 2016 is over. Already!

During our flight to Athens (where we arrived this Wednesday) I was thinking that it could be really fun to do a little round up here on the blog.

Feature the best/ most read posts for example. I mean, I was really curious to investigate as well. Which topics do you guys love? What are you interested in etc…

And it is a lovely way to finish the year and take a little break from the blog and social media. Refreshing actually.

RAM’N – respecting creativity

Ram'n

Today is a day where I can hardly wait to publish my post. To show you something really fabulous.

Marie-Louise and her husband Thomas are RAM’N. An innovative frame that lets you hang your kids’ art in just 2 seconds and can keep up to 50 drawings! Yes… I know… this is THE solution to all the ‘what to do with all the paintings’ questions.

Let me share the story about RAM’N, it is one of those that remind me why I started this blog and why I love this industry. The small, independent designers, brands… the ones that put so much love and passion in their work:

Toi Art Gallery

Toi Art Gallery

I like art. I like good prints. I would love to fall in love with a real big {probably expensive} painting. Oil maybe. Something I can imagine to love forever.

So far I have not found that painting but make myself happy with affordable prints. A home without art is like a home without plants and books. Impossible.

And when Karina & Viviana introduced me to their world called Toi Art Gallery I was in love straight away. A paradise with carefully selected artists. A paradise so nicely different to what you see everywhere. If I could, I would hang it all!

The two girls, originally from Argentina but based in California, wanted to focus on South American artists initially but expanded ‘world wide’. Great art needs to have its place!
