As soon as I came back from work my mom picked me up for some tree-hunting. We fell in love with the first one that we saw, so the hunt turned out to be very easy. As soon as we arrived at home we lightened every candle in the house and Christmas music was heard in every room.
I decided that the tree this year needs to have a theme. The theme (after looking through a whole movingbox with decorations) became white-red-silver. I enjoy looking at the tree now since it isn’t messy. This wonderful ornament is my favorite in the whole tree, and it’s actually from IKEA! It’s really heavy and I wouldn’t have believed I didn’t know.
Almost all of our Christmas ornaments are old and have been inherited from our relatives. This one though isn’t. This, with 5 others are our new recruits for this year together with the top. They’re all from ZETAS here in Sweden, southern Stockholm.
Wish I knew where this was from. Might be as simple as that it’s made by me a long time ago? I don’t know.
Love these ringing bells as well. Don’t know where they’re from but I do know that they’re also inherited.
Our top, the star, is also from ZETAS and new for this year!
Mom told me that we made this one. I like it together with everything else. Every ornament fits together but no one is the same.
Well, now it’s time to enjoy our tree together with a lightened fireplace and just sit here for a while. You should do the same. <3

So, for me to be moving out is coming closer for each day and that has totally started some interior design-thoughts inside of me. I don’t really know how everything will look in the end, but I do know that there are some details I wouldn’t be able to be without in my new apartment. Some of them I wanted to share with you down below.
As you may have understood from my latest posts, I love Jimi Hendrix and I wouldn’t feel like it was a home if it wasn’t for Jimi on a huge painting over my couch. I like this naked, stripped style since you can match it to almost anything. I prefer earthy tones with colors as white, grey, beige and brown, to a contrastcolor as maybe light pink. As light as possible, and if it’s to a dark wooden floor I’m out. Done. Loving it.
To match the huge painting I’d love a huge couch beneath. I like this grey color, but if it was a little bit lighter and a bit mot beige it would’ve been perfect. I like the mix of Chesterfield and velvet, but unlike Chesterfield I would never choose a leathercouch. Never ever.
I like floor lamps of Scandinavian design. I prefer danish designs in general and this one is a favorite that I would place by the couch.
Introducing to you, my favorite designer right now, Mats Theselius. He makes amazing armchairs and this is my exact favorite that I’d like to invest in someday in the future. Now though, it’s way too expensive. This one costs about 60.000 Swedish crowns if I remember correctly. See this one to the couch in the same beige color. Wow what a match. I want!!! Maybe with the legs in copper though?
