Curtains

I’ve never been a big curtain fan, i always feel like they make the room smaller, and I’ve seen too many horrifying examples when the curtains have completely brought down the room.. But these images inspire me to the point of actually considering them. Just remember when choosing curtains: you don’t have to have them! Only if you find curtains that you feel will lift your room to new hieghts, go for it! Be creative! In my opinion, rather no curtains than boring curtains!

So what’s going to lift your room?

Interior Design, Seasonal Inspiration

Trendreport FW 2013

Even though I’ve never been a huge fan of following trends and people telling others what’s “hot” and what’s “not”. I just think it tampers with creative freedom and suppresses people’s will to listen to their own preferences when it comes to style, whether it’s about fashion, make-up or interior design.

But this season, I personally loved that these features became trendy!

Flora and Fauna

I love nature, and anything that brings me closer to it. From details like feathers, to materials like untreated wood. I also love photography. So when photographs of animals and flora started appearing on sheets and pillows I just couldn’t resist (as can be seen here).

Warm Metals

As I’ve mentioned earlier I’m completely hooked on warm metals like copper, brass and gold. Interestingly enough, these metals have been a rare sight in our homes since the flower power 70s when they completely flourished. Now they’re making a comeback, and copper, brass and gold can be found everywhere. I love it!

Graphic

This trend nearly didn’t make this list, but I couldn’t resist, even though I can’t help thinking that this trend has been taken a little too far. As with most things, good things come with moderation. But a nice piece of graphic art to give a room a more modern feel doesn’t hurt!

I really like the Zigzag feature of the graphic trend though!

Paper Shop

Ikea has started a lovely Paper Shop, that I visited for the first time (unfortunately very briefly) this Thursday. I wasn’t planning on getting anything, but as usual I couldn’t resist! My Mom has had a Favorite Recipe Book since she was young, and her collection is vaster than I ever hope to accomplish, but I guess I have to start somewhere. So I got this to motivate me:
