|Every year I purge my dated, worn clothing and add new classic pieces to my wardrobe. A good quality coat is an investment, choosing a look that is updated, well fitting and not overly trendy is always a good idea! I love it dressed up or down. Giorgia’s fuzzy version is AMAZE! (top right). Here are my picks for the timeless camel coat; a wardrobe staple for sure!

Every time I look through the pictures I spot something new. Did you see the arm for example (it makes sense when you look through Heidi’s portfolio)?! And of course their very handsome cat Nico!
I love the colour scheme in the bedroom… so inspiring!
It’s these elements of surprises which make the home so fascinating, don’t you think?
Get the look: pick up a mid-century credenza here, macrame plant holder, this is a great source for vintage easels. Vintage tin boxes. Heidi’s art. I love the round chair in the bedroom but haven’t found anything like it – any tips?
More beautiful artists’ home to feel inspired by: a beautiful Copenhagen home in a former sculpter’s atelier, an artist’s home and studio in Stockholm, a Swedish artist’s home in a former school.
Have a great start to the week!

Hello Loves! The time I spend reaching out to you all via Shelter means everything to me. The creating keeps me sane, the gathering of images and ideas makes me happy and the writing has gotten me through some of the most challenging moments of my life. I’ve been so inspired by people’s stories, places, moments, spaces and my children lately! Peace out, wishing you all an amazing weekend! I’m off to pack my bag and head up north for a much needed long weekend!! Also, wishing two of the most inspirational, kind, and loving people I know a VERY Happy Birthday!! I love you Mom and Dad. I can’t wait to celebrate you this weekend!! xo
1. I feel a sense of calm the moment I cross over the border into Vermont.
2. Tassel earrings? Yes, please.
3. I love layered, neutral interiors as much as colorful ones. The key is to mix and layer textures, pattern and color like David did here. And that tufted french cushion sectional?? Gah, I may need to design one for myself.
4. THIS. (be patient with yourselves too)
5. We just ordered this gorgeous rug for under my client’s beautiful grand piano. I’ve been working on the Buckminster project for some time now. It’s going to be out of control when finished!! It has evolved over time, so we’ve carefully considered every detail.

Lovely, don’t you think?
I think this is probably the nicest bedroom stroke work space I’ve seen – there’s so much room for each and the shelves bridge the two zones perfectly! Very inspiring (speaking as someone who has a desk in my bedroom). I also love the plants!
Is there anything that catches your eye?
Get the look – dining area: Hay about a chair, bertoia chair, thonet chair. bedroom – string shelving system, Kvist light by Jonas Bohlin this chunky knit throw is similar (and soooo cosy!), seagrass belly basket.
It was a while since I shared a little mid-week link love wasn’t it? How miserable of me! Here goes…
The perfect blue velvet sofa.
I’ve got my eye on this glass cabinet from IKEA.
This scene will have you dreaming…
The boho bedroom.
How about this pretty hellebore wreath?
Have a lovely day!
1. Yeh wall table and GM pendant both by Menu. 2. Dinnerware by Bloomingville. 3. Murmur Still Grey bed linen and Murmur towels. 4. Amp light by Normann Copenhagen.

Oh so lovely!
It would also make a great guest house (in the warmer months of the year), don’t you think?
If you already have a garden shed you’re in luck. If not, this one is a contemporary summerhouse with side shed. Pick up vintage crates here. There’s always a great selection of mid-century side-tables to be found here. Buy classic books in lovely new covers here. I love pretty Liberty print fabric in florals (like the ones Jeska’s used for the cushions) – but you can use small samples of fabrics you have lying around at home – or search for vintage fabric online. Pick up a recycled blanket (and other items) at Jeska’s beautiful online shop The Future Kept.
You can see more pics of this make-over here.
Other inspiring garden retreats include this fab caravan and a dreamy shed conversion.
Could you imagine having a little space like this to call your own?
Have a lovely day!
PS I’m exploring Helsinki today, so exciting (thank you for all your tips over the last few days – I’m actually in Café Succés enjoying ‘the best cinnamon bun in town’ and I can testify that it is the best one I’ve ever tasted – with a bowl of café au lait of course!). I’ll be walking around with a small skip in my step as I’ve just received the news that My Scandinavian Home has been nominated for Best European Interior Blog in the Amara #IBA16 – votes can now be placed here – I’d be so happy if you’d like to vote for me!
