Autumn Interiors 2014

What do Autumn interiors look like this year to you? I created a board so you can peek into my view including some of the photos that I took yesterday in the forest behind my home. Here is a glimpse into my vibe this year for Autumn… I LOVE this mood right now and is the current inspiration behind my living room redecoration project too. Moody, smokey, intense, sensual, nature-inspired and cozy as hell!

Does this mood and palette feel like sweater weather to you, too? Moody blues and greens?

Happy Friday Everyone!

Friday is typically a nice day, isn’t it? There’s a certain magic in the air midday. When I worked in corporate, I’d hang out with my colleagues chatting about weekend plans and discussing our week and silly upper management. We’d disappear for coffee, for that final jolt of caffeine to push us through until 5pm when we’d be free at last like birds.

Now as a freelancer, there is no such thing as the end of a work week. My work is continuous now, always on my mind and I work weekends even when I don’t want to. And yet, Fridays are still magical unicorn kind of days, there is still that Friday feeling buzz. I’d like to wish you a magical Friday and a beautiful evening filled with hope, then promise tomorrow, and the finding of good things on Sunday for you and your family (and little ones, if you have them). For now, I’m leaving you with gorgeous inspiration from a site I recently discovered from one of the founders, Nessa, called Made In You, based in France. Look at their gorgeous event styling… Makes me want to float away.

Have a nice weekend! Oh, and a big thanks to Elle Decoration UK for featuring Decorate With Flowers in their June 2014 issue – I just discovered it yesterday and was so pleased.

Oh! And we’ve added a co-teacher to Blog Boss, Fiona Humberstone, and she’ll be teaching many great topics including full-on blog branding such as the absolute essentials of color psychology, making design decisions that reflect your style and using color psychology to influence your editorial decisions so that you communicate with authenticity and consistency. This class is for ALL LEVELS. Read more here and register before our lovely online class sells out. Also please note that all classes next year will be very different and pricing will change, and none of the current classes from Blogging Your Way will be offered anymore. We are completely changing everything! So if you have been wanting to take a Blogging Your Way e-course, this is a great time to jump on board. This is the last one we’ll be teaching this year and Blog Boss will not be taught again.

Bye everyone, see you on Monday!

4 Affordable DIY Home Decorating Projects For Autumn

Looking for some Fall-ish DIYs for your home and patio? I used to LOVE when Anna Malin Lindgren was writing for decor8. Her DIY column was one that I looked forward too and even though it’s been forever ago, I still miss her posts! Since so many of them were warm and cozy, and Fall is but a week away, I thought I’d highlight 4 of my favorites in case you are in need of Autumnal decorating inspiration on a budget.

12 Fall Favorites For The Home From Anthropologie

I love it when my favorite design gurus talk about what they’re loving for the season! It’s fun to peek into someone else’s shopping bag when you admire their style so much. Would you like to see my 12 favorites for Fall from Anthropologie? I don’t get to their stores much these days – they don’t have any in Germany and up until now they were only in England (but soon to open in Paris), so unless I travel there I’m rarely able to play in their fashion and interiors wonderland for adults. I do shop them online though since they have a German store, but it’s not the same as being immersed in that lush brocante chic experience that is Anthro. Oh well, I’m due a London visit soon anyway. Until then, here is my shopping list for the months ahead…

anthro3

1.Garden Buzz Shower Curtain, 2. Field Harvest Dinner Plates, 3. Wildlife calendar 2015, 4. Zoology oval rug.

anthro2

5.Openhouse magazine Volume 1, 6. Waved spectrum coaster, 7. Handwoven Arrow Tapestry, 8. Alicia Galer Barbican Palm.

anthro1

9.Botanical Print, Ostrich, 10. Bee Colony Wallpaper, 11. Meadow Dusk Duvet and 12. pillows.

Spot any new faves?
