Are you ready for something a little different on this blog? 

The fall is a great time to be motivated and inspired with new catalogues, collections and, well, generally new things. This time of year also kickstarts cosy, homely feelings, when we all start to hibernate a little more. The weather starts being a bit more unpredictable and to me when the weather gets cold, rainy and blustery it just makes me feel like an even smaller, more vulnerable person on this huge planet of ours, always at the mercy of our beautiful nature.

This fall, IKEA is launching their new catalogue along side something really amazing - a time travel experiment.  IKEA gave some of their customers the opportunity to experience their future. How? Well, world-renowned hypnotist, Justin Tranz put young couples into a hypnotic trance before presenting them with life-changing every day events in bedrooms and bathrooms, the rooms where the day begins and ends....

The idea is that those big moments that happen in all our lives have a dramatic affect on how we live and how we live has a dramatic affect on how our homes evolve.

Take a look at this video which films Adam and Sofi dealing with various milestones in their daughters life, I think it's absolutely fascinating and so clever.  I'd love to hear what you think.

Some words from Johan Wickmark, catalogue manager at IKEA...“At IKEA, we believe that life happens everyday. That it’s on those seemingly ordinary days the magic happens, when life takes shape and changes, and it’s for those moments we create our products and solutions”


 I came across this really nice kids bedroom over on Weekday Carnival. I really love the details, like the vintage wardrobe, pink and grey wall and the bare bulb string lights -  love those bed-linens too - in fact it's all rather nice :)


I'm loving these A/W 2014 shots from House Doctor. Whilst they have an A/W feel to them, they still feel fresh and bright. The nude pink and brass get my vote :)

Well the blogosphere is filling up with A/W 14 new collection shots and I must say I aways look forward to this part of the year. But at the same time we have to enjoy these last few weeks of summer and I think these images capture these hazy August days perfectly.

70 / 70 Table

I saw how great this table looked over here and wanted to post about it.  Muutos 70/70 table by Taf Architects is so simple and beautiful - the price is pretty great also.

I seriously need to change my summer plans around next year. This place is pure getaway perfection. Don't you think?

So with just 6 weeks to go, I'm getting the last pieces organised. I've really enjoyed collecting things for my baby and these are just a few of bits that I love. Some of them I already have and some will come along later.  I'm so excited to meet my precious baby,  I love him/her so much already. This truly is the most special time of my life and we are enjoying every minute of it (even if I am on crutches....).
