Inspire Me

Grandma’s cooking

I know this is an interior design and home decor blog, but sometimes I can’t help wanting to share other sources of inspiration. I found this on tumblr and started reflecting, first of all how true it is, about grandmothers and food (my grandma’ can’t come around without bringing something yummy) and secondly how many sources of inspiration there are for our homes. Our culture, background, family, and cooking can all be great sources of inspiration! Some of these plates have such lovely color schemes! Enjoy!

I don’t like killing plants but…

I really suck at keeping them alive. I try, I honestly try, to water them as often as I remember, but I’m too lazy and forgetful to make it a habit… So what to do? I love plants inside, but have trouble keeping them alive. I’ve found two potential solutions, have a look!

1. The obvious. What I was going to write about from the beginning. Cacti (or just cactuses, but I think cacti sounds that much cooler!) and succulents.





2. This awesome, eye catching little invention by Patrick Morris, that gradually waters your plants with gravity’s help and only needs refilling once a fortnight!

Pink Parrot

Kuddfodral i bomull

I must admit, I’m a litte weak for HM, like a true Swede! The combination of quality, good prices and fun pieces is a winning concept (most of the time). I haven’t been too interested in their HOME colloections, but then this pink parrot caught my eye and I couldn’t resist! A fun compliment in any home, perfect in time for spring!
