Do you want to see my last bouquet? I warn you, it is very pink and the vessel is very bright too, it is my yellow watering can.
The weather has been really dull in the last few days in Northern Germany and I felt the urge to create a colourful and happy bouquet.
So here the ingredients and the result. I hope it will brighten your day a little bit.
Speak to you soon!
Good morning everyone! Continue reading
Emily Winfield Martin is the book author and illustrator behind the black apple and my mew decoration crush.
I discovered her, first through her beautiful cover for the Australian magazine Frankie. I am very much in love with her portraits. She makes me really want to visit Portland and get to know its amazing artists.
I especially love the women portraits with flowers and ordered the Shirley Poppy print for my living room. The paper quality is beautiful! The delivery was a bit challenging and I had to pick it up at the customs and wait an hour for it, as it was shipped from the US, but it was definitely worth it.
All the prints from the collage above are availabe on Emily’s shop on Etsy.
The design studio COLONEL, specialised in furniture and decoration items was launched in Paris in 2012 by designers Isabelle Gilles & Yann Poncelet.
The signature of the brand is:
- light wood
- fresh colors
All the products designed by COLONEL are made in France, in collaboration with various craftmen. I love the solid beech wood and the choice of colours and the geometric forms.
The products are available at the showroom/shop situated in the 10th arrondissement of Paris and on the e-shop: www.moncolonel.fr.
In the e-shop, you can also find some beautiful products from Hay or Muuto.
I wish you a great start in this new week!

I am so happy the #2flowergirls is back on track. We have received some very pretty entries so far and there are some more still coming. You can see some of those beauties on our Pinterest board.
After I had photographed mine at the beginning of the week, I found some more anemones, this time in deep red and bright pink, that I combined with some crazy good looking red and pink scabiosa.
Here are some pictures for you, along with some pictures of my favourite flower shop in Hamburg where I found those beautiful anemones called Küchenblume. I already presented the shop here, but it was so pretty the other day, that I had to show you more pictures.
I wish you a great day full of flowers!
Yesterday was a very special day for Inga and me with a new edition of the #2flowergirls after quite a long break.
Today I would like to talk about Kauniste with you. I bought a blue cushion last week at LYS Vintage and I am so in love. The Finnish brand Kauniste is known for it’s work with young Scandinavian designers such as Matti Pikkujämsä, Leena Kisonen. That is how they define their work:
“Our aim is to combine the best of both worlds: fresh design and traditional screen printing skills. We work to bring you items that can be used and cherished in the daily life for decades to come.
We want to make patterns and products that last and keep bringing joy to your home past seasonal trends.”
They produce trays, towels or decoration items such as cushions.
You can find their products in design shops, online on their online shop or in their shop in the centre of Helsinki.
I hope you will like Kauniste as much as I do!
Such a good mood and fresh brand.
Have a great day!

I am so happy we chose the anemones this time. Those are truly among my favourite flowers and they come in such lovely shades. I found some classic ones in blue, white and red, plus a couple of more unusual orange ones. I hope you will like them – I am so curious to see yours!
