The Succulent interior trend are all the rage right now. Every home needs a little green in it, so I’m happy that succulents are the big trend in container gardening and house plants. Ideal for one’s amongst us who do not have “green fingers” as they are hard to kill. These prickly beauties are very forgiving and can go a long way without water or other love.
True to tradition, Normann Copenhagen launches its own Christmas Candle with a stylish black and white graphic. This year, Anne Lehmann has taken her inspiration from the elegant haute couture of Paris. The exclusive, pure look has been transformed into a simple graphic of horizontal stripes. An elegant way of counting down to Christmas!
The countdown to Christmas day is represented by each stripe on the candle. Make the wait a decorative one by composing a still life consisting of your favourite vases and knick-knacks together with the elegant Christmas Candle. Use a Heima Block Candle Holder to accentuate a fashionable universe of black and white. The burning time of the Christmas Candle is 88 hours. Read More
Blog Home Tour – Dream Home. This apartment is a good example of showing how lightning can make an interior cozy and welcoming. And candles are definitely a must for dark and long winter evenings!
The white wall that reflects the light in the room makes it look brighter and I like it a lot! White walls in every room its a smart way to keep it simple. Also by keeping the main interior quite minimal and timeless, but allowing to change the items on display, you can really give the room an entirely different atmosphere. This is actually something I often do in my own home as well. I like to change the interior a lot, and try new things, but definitely don’t want to go and buy new furniture every time again. Just by replacing some details. Read More

In some ways color is for me more important than actual design elements. I always follow my intuition and choose the color which feels good in my surroundings. Since I like most colors I often switch but choose some colors more often than others. It might not come as a surprise, but I personally prefer green style Christmas decorations. Therefore there will be a green Christmas home for me this year!
In order to choose a proper color scheme for your Christmas decorations, think about what colors you already have. A good rule of thumb is to always choose colors that match or contrast nicely with your decor. Your color scheme can be made up of Christmas lights, ornaments, garlands, wreaths, ribbons, sequins and stockings, which are available in a variety of colors. You don’t need to totally redesign your home to create a cozy Christmas atmosphere. I prefer to use my everyday accessories, add some fresh flowers and just a few Christmas decorations to create a personal touch and a spirit of Christmas in my home. Read More
