Did you notice the spring sunshine last weekend? I love sitting by the window and, if the weather allows it, on my balcony. Snoozing in the sun and reading a magazine is one of my favourite things to do. Now that we’ll hopefully get more sunshine, I’m planing on rejuvenating my window space. And that usually means that it’s “time to go to IKEA” to look for some new textiles, plants, vases and lamps and more.
Below are some of my favourite products from IKEA’s spring collection. Take a look…
1 - GULSPORRE curtains, 1 pair, £10 || 2 - LINDVED side table, 50x68cm, white, £15
3 - HERMINE throw 120x180cm, beige/pink, £15 || 4 - HÖGTIDLIG finial white 2-pack, £6
5 – SKURAR plant pot, off-white, £2 || 6 - EKTORP Armchair, Edsken dark grey, £330
7 - HEDBLOMSTER cushion 50x60cm, £15
How are you going to spruce up your favourite window seat?

First of all, big apologies for my lack of blogging. It’s been a manic few weeks and I’m only just getting my head wrapped around my trip to New York which has come around so quickly. I can’t actually believe that I’ll be there in less than two weeks… Completed unrelated to New York, I recently found these super minimal studio spaces by Stryntrappa, a stairway design company from Norway. It was less the stairs and more than spaces themselves than drew me to these pictures. Have a look. Perhaps you can see why.

This cross blanket by Pia Wallen has gone around the world. I first saw it on Bleubird about two years ago. Since then this Pia’s blanket has taken the lifestyle blogging world by storm. Absolutely everybody seems to haven fallen in love with this including me. It’s timeless, simple and delicate.
Related to the crux blanket from 1991, Pia took on board the Swedish folk art tradition when she designed this. Apparently the cross signifies ’hope’.
I could imagine this draped over sofa, inside a nursery bedroom, or used on a chair to make it slightly more comfy. At £165 it is a little on the pricey side but then it’s very good quality with 100% organic cotton sourced from Peru.
Do you like Pia’s work? Have you heard of her before?
