BED to be made!!

ACHEI!! Found the bed I want. I've been looking for the perfect bed for a year now. Yes - I am very picky... Anyhow, I won't be able to find it in a store so I'll have to have it made. Found in the following beautiful blog:

It's all in the detail

Again - turquoise, I just think it goes well with everything. Anyhow - the reason why I posted this picutre is because of the bench in front of the sofa. The pattern and colours are beautiful and it brings so much life into the picture.

Stuck on Turquoise these days...

Everything that's turquoise just keeps catching my eye these days. Zebra stripes has grown on me these last couple of years as well. The combination is quite uniquely beautiful.

Map on the wall

Micky loves maps, so when I was this I decided to post it. One of the walls is a huge map. Same blog as the previous post. Besides that I love the furniture and how "clean" the room looks.

Thinking about our new bedroom

Micky and I are thinking about moving soon so I'm really excited about creating new rooms in our new home once we find it. This is an idea for the bedroom. I found it on a lovely blog:

Cherry Blossom

I´ve looked for a while but can´t find cherry blossom... I´ve only found the fake stuff which I don´t like. My parents are landscapers so you can imagine... no fake flowers or plants in my house.

Hands down - the best closet!!

Kimora Lee Simmons´s closet. Congratulations Kimora - you have fantastic taste!! The closet, is decorated with leopard-print carpet, marble columns, a mini-bar, and flat screen tvs. Everything in her closet is photographed and stored on her computer so she can put together outfits.


Wow - can you imagine having a closet like this one?! I think I´d sleep in it... Love the pink chair and the stars on the floor. Inspiration for my next closet!!
