CREATING A HOME OFFICE

Good morning! Right now I’m dreaming about creating a home office with a smaller desk, a couple of shelves and some inspiring posters or a blackboard. I’m currently working from the kitchen table, which is great too but I miss to have my really own space where I can place my coffee cup without worrying about stains, and spread my books and papers around without the need to clean it up in the end of the day.

A good looking room or a nicely decorated house is a well planned and thought through process. Interior design starts with inspiration, then visualisation, then searching the market for the “wanted furniture or pieces” and lastly getting it done meaning buying, painting or whatever you would need to do to reach your interior “goal”. Following that process, let me then start with the inspiration and some thoughts.

I like my office to be in black and white colours, a clean look to keep my focus. Eventually adding some posters with inspiring people or quotes.

It’s important to have tools for storage like boxes for papers and penholders. A watch is always a good idea to keep track of the hour.

I like decoration that’s simple and changeable; like photos that I can change reflecting the season and my mood.

A comfortable chair for long days and a blackboard to note down new ideas, goals and dreams.
Have a lovely day and if you have comments and ideas of a home office or even your own home office I would be glad to see it! Hugs!

SOFA COUTURE
Last week when cleaning one of my cupboards I found two unused pillowcases I’ve forgotten about. I remember I bought them on a late winter evening at IKEA and even before we received our sofa, in the hope that they would match. It’s a shade of green that reminds me of forest green, smaragd or even spirulina. I think they fit perfectly to our sofa, which has a matt greyish blue tone that the sofa producer Signet call the colour Nemo.

The sofa was an experience in it self. I searched each corner of internet, each city we went to, any store I came across and even outlets and sofa-makers. I was looking for the perfect sofa bed. I truly became a sofa expert during these months. Sofa bed sounds very boring but they are very practical, especially when we don’t have an extra guest room. Now, Sofa beds can also be incredibly ugly and uncomfortable, so the hunting for the perfect one (good looking, comfortable and right size) was a battle.
SOFIA CM INTERIOR BLOG ZUICH,

During our ride from Tegernsee to Zurich in July last year, and the longest traffic jam ever, I entertained myself googling sofa beds in the area; and voila, my search gave me what I wished for. The perfect sofa bed, individually  manufactured and customised to your needs. Five months later (which felt like a lifetime of watching movies on the floor) our dream sofa arrived from Signet. And we bought it from Sofa Couture in Germany. This is absolutely no sponsored post, it’s just a post written from the heart recommending my favourite sofa manufacturer!

KITCHEN DREAMS

Good morning, ahhhh, I woke with a head feeling like it would explode. Bhuuu… I caught a cold and it even hurts to chew a chewing gum. Whatever, at least I can still sit here and work, it doesn’t hurt to move the fingers over the keyboard. I’ve spent most of the morning in my kitchen, making lemon juice, then a cup of coffee and right now I’m drinking something called Neocitran, that’s something we drink here when being sick, like a magic drink from the pharmacy and actually really helping.

I named this post Kitchen dreams as I find this kitchen to be just like that, a kitchen dream. I love the marble and the foggy reflection in these images. I have always liked the combination of white, grey and brown, even when combining my own clothes and these colours are indeed something we find here matching the reflecting white marble with the brown wooden chairs.

The latter details are the round vase and the light bulbs. At first look I thought this home is typically and traditional Swedish, however when looking closer studying the details of this kitchen I find very modern decorations such as just that, the lights, the vase and the patterned wallpaper in the background. I adore this style and I found this home for sale on one of the Swedish real estate pages a couple of months back. I hope the new owners enjoy their new home as much as I would have done. Hugs.

A SPECIAL HOME

Good evening my darlings, oh hmm... I 'm feeling a bit lonely right now when my partner is traveling and I'm all home alone. For two nights in a row I had friends over but tonight I need to work, blog and spend some quality time on my own. Well, I must admit I'm slightly tired from last night. Me and my girlfriend went dancing until four in the morning so I have some beauty sleep to catch up on! I can't remember last time I had so much fun! To end the evening I collected my favourite pictures of a home story of The Socialite Family that I've seen a couple of months back, it's a very special home. Enjoy your Sunday eying, hugs <3
