There are few things I enjoy as much as setting a table for a festive holiday dinner or for hosting our friends. It is always so much fun to choose a theme and color and work my way through. From placemats to napkins to candles and table decor. 

For this years Fall table scape I went with a Golden Fall theme. Sunflowers!! To make the yellow really pop and set it apart I decided to go with a dark shade of blue and it turned out fabulous. My husband also liked it a lot and he usually doesn´t care too much abou these kinds of things.

The first piece I got was the yellow gingham table cloth. The perfect yellow and pattern to beginn with. After that I ordered plain napkins in yellow and got a huge bunch of sunflowers. The sunflowers are the center piece of the table so I worked my way around. The golden candle holder are a staple in our home and I used them all the time. 3 of them are on my sidebord as year round decor. I also have these in silver as well as black. In my opinion they are perfect for so many ocassions and the price point is amazing. 

Now for the blue part I got these round woven placemats. I also like to mix and match patterns so I got these blue gingham plates for appetizers. They are a little smaller than your average plate and pop right out under the yellow napkin.

Also aren´t these glossy candles candles the prettiest you have ever seen ? They are super affordable and to way to amazing to burn down. 

Are you hosting for Fall or at least for Thanksgiving or do you like being invited to eat?

Shared Girl´s Room – Peony Wallpaper and Blush Walls….

 

….

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

I have been dying to finally share this room with you. I envisioned how it could look long before I knew that we were going to have a second girl. It turned out even better than I thought and it is definitely my favorite room of the house.  We are spending our mornings and evenings in the girl´s room and it is just amazing at how much love you can put into a single room. 

The Girl´s Shared Room

Color Theme

When thinking about the color theme for a girls room pink immediately comes to my mind. I wanted to dial it down a bit and went with a light blush shade. It is super subtle and on the cooler side. The main colors of the wallpaper are rose, blush and olive green. A few wooden and gold accents round up the whole room.

The Wallpaper

The lead piece of the shared girl´s room is the peonies wallpaper. I have looked for a flower wallpaper everywhere and found the one of my dreams on Wayfair. It has been quite expensive but it will probably stay until they move out plus it ties the room toghether perfectly and even my husband loves it. He usually doesn´t care about decor and “stuff” like that. From here on I went with a soft blush wall color for all of the walls. You can have a look at the before of the nursery here. 

After that all I had to do was to find matching pieces. The curtains have been the easiest pieces cause the lenght was just right and the color matches perfectly with the leaves in the wallpaper. These are also blackout curtains I use during the day. We have shutters for the night.

Furniture 

All of the furniture we have in the girls room is from Ikea. Literally everything. I personally love Ikea and think the furniture is pretty good and affordable. Also we probably change it up every few years since the girls are still growing. 

The cribs we have are the same cause I wanted to have a symmetrical look on the wallpaper wall. In the middle of the two cribs is a small shelf where I put some cute nursery decor as well as keepsake pieces, gifts and photos from the girls.

To store all the clothing and all the other things we need for the girls we have two closets. One for the clothes and one for all the other things. In the middle of these two there is the changing station. It is the Hemnes changing station and the same we used with Emilia. I have added some new things like the wooden storage options and paper boxes as well as a mobile. Helena loves the mobile on the changing station and laughs at it all the time. It is the cutest thing.

This will always be my favorite room watching my girls grow up and play and hopefully have the best relationship toghether.

FYI: I prepared this blog post before our baby girl arrived so there would still be fresh content on the blog while I am taking a break from blogging. That’s why you’ll still see me pregnant or referencing my pregnancy in some upcoming blog posts!

After six years of living in this house and two attemps I have finally finished our office to the last detail. It has taken me so much time and to be honest I just don´t know why. I have started the renovation process October 19 and then the pandemic hit and my husband used it to work from home and after that we had a baby so it became a little less important for me to get it done but it never went out of my mind.

Our office hasn´t always been an office, most of the time inbetween it was more of a junk room full of boxes, stuff I needed to return, coats and spiders. I really couldn´t be more glad and I love how it turned out plus the vibrant and dark green wall color definitely is a favorite in our house.

Office Color Theme

As I already said the color theme of our office is a little darker and much modier than the rest of our house. I have two forest green walls and two bright white walls and the contrast is absolutely stunning. The dark green color looks amazing with the all white furniture. I wanted to keep it mostly in these two colors (green carpet and armchair, white furniture) and only added silver accents through decoration. 

Beverage Corner

This might be a little too fancy for a home office and maybe also totally pointless but I love it. I have seen that some offices have beverage carts and the thought of just turning around and making a cup of coffee or getting a glass of diet coke seems pretty great to me. I outsourced one of my old coffee machines into our office. The cups and sugar / milk are in the left top drawer and if you want to enjoy some soda you can choose between San Pellegrino and Diet Coke my two favorites. Not necessary but super cool.

Computer / Desk Area

This would be the normal area in an office but what is normal these days!!! The desk we have in our office is really old. I already used it as a school girl so this is a real sustainable piece I have used for more than 15 years now. Initially it was dark brown but I stained it white with a chalk color to achive this used look and I still like how it turned out. The three drawers on the left are used for all of my notebooks and computer related cables other than that they are empty. To the left of the desk is a little station that hides all the cables, those are a lot!!! And the two little side tables are also perfect to for the printer to sit on. I also have a little fashion and style inspo board with tons of outfits I have loved to stay inspired.

Reading Nook

We definitely both love to read although there hasn´t been that much time left since Emilia is here. Nevertheless both of us brought lots of books into this marriage whether it was novels or text books from my husbands work. I had to find nice storage place for them other than pilling them up behind the armchair. So I got these two billy shelves and I am really happy how this little nook turned out. I found a place to put all of our souvenirs as well and some of my decor to place inbetween the books. The forest green armchair with the soft and cozy fur complements the reading nook. I ended up getting a side table / foot rest cause first of all it looked uncomplete without and second of all this is really practically / comfortable while reading.

Storage

As far as storage goes there is plenty in the new office. From the Malm dresser with lots of drawers to the Billy shelves where I store all of our books and important documents to the drawers of the desk and the boxes of the Kallax. Many of the drawers and boxes are still empty which isn´t bad because with a growing family there will always be a need for storage. All of the furniture (except the desk) are from Ikea and linked (if still available) above.

I personally love Ikea and that all of their pieces are compatible colorwise plus they are still affordable although the prices have increased a lot since the pancdemic and availability isn´t always given. 

So that´s it. Now you have seen our updated office. Took us only six years to share with you guys.

How to set up an Easter Center Piece at your Dinning Room Table…

….

Table decor is one of my favorite things to create in terms of home decor and hosting especially for the holidays cause it can be as extra as possible. 

Easter is an amazing holiday to create a unique center piece for your dining room table you can leave and build your setting around or just enjoy between hosting. 

First of all I decide on a theme which wasn´t to hard here because it is clearly Easter and what would be better than bunnies and eggs. So that´s that.

The second thing I am always doing is set a color theme. This time I went with blue and blush cause the candles I got have the most beautiful tie-dye shade and I definitely wanted to incorporate them into my Easter center piece.

A great thing to add some interest to the whole scene is adding height. I you use different vases, candle holders and different sized pieces of decor to achive this. It is so easy and so much fun to play with the heights of all the pieces. Usually the center piece of my table decor is the highest one on the tabe, this time the blue vase. I decorated the cute branches of catkins with all of my glittery blush and blue Easter eggs and I love how it looks every year. 

White ceramic pieces are your friend in this case. The white isn´t distracting from the other colors and also keeps the table decor theme light and airy plus you can incorporate all of your white pieces into every upcoming season.
