Today I would like to show you the little Christmas wreath I made for my home with simple ribbons and moss. I bought the wreath moss at the flower shop and some black velvet and satin ribbon at tiger. The purple one is from Idee.
I just turned the ribbon around the wreath and tightened it with a big knot at the top.
I love dark colours in decoration. I think that they transport elegance and cosiness. And if used with some gold or some sparkles, they can even look very festive.
It’s not exactly summer here in Hamburg, and as I am writing this post we are in the middle of a big storm. That’s why I want to share with a little treasure I found on the market on Tuesday: A bunch of mimosa to brighten up your day!
today I would like to introduce you to Kimberly Watt and to her beautiful flower blog Petal Pixie. A very talented florist and stylist from the US, that I discovered on Instagram. Here goes to my little interview. I hope you will enjoy it.
Have a nice day!
Hello my dears,
I am starting a new column on the blog today called Lovely Fabric and I would like to talk about fabric design with you. I am a fabric addict - I love pretty patterns and soft fabric and am using fabric a lot in decoration. I like sewing cushions and curtains for my home. I made almost all the curtains myself in my flat. I also used a lot of different fabric to decorate my daughter’s little nursery.
I usually buy my fabric online via French online shops, as a lot of the fabric I like are not available here in Germany. Through this series, I would like to introduce you to some of my favourite fabric designers from France and from all over the world or just some of my favourite patterns and tell you where you can source them online.
The first fabric designer, I would like to talk to you about is France Duval-Stalla. Here are a couple of her patterns. She is working with a lot of greys and muted colours.
I am enjoying the calm at home right now, as my little one is still sleeping and my husband has left to go to work. Today I would like to share with you my new discovery in Hamburg. I discovered this lovely place last week when pushing the pram and my neighborhood with my friend Sabrina.
Dear Matsu, is a new tea salon and vegan restaurant in lovely Hamburg - Eppendorf, situated in the lovely Erikastrasse. The place opened in March and looks so Japanese! I completely fell in love with it. It is incredible, but the owners Mathias and Sylvia have never been to Japan – but as I told them, you really have the impression that this place could be in a street of Tokyo or Kyoto. The place is called dear matsu after their favourite sort of tea.
The decoration is absolutely lovely and puristic – I am particularly in love with the copper Tom Dixon lamps on the green wall.
Christmas is approaching and you are maybe already looking for presents for your friends and family. I created a Christmas wish list for young parents with items from one of my favourite online shops: Smallable. I already introduced Smallable here.
This list is a mix of things I already bought for Ella’s bedroom, such as the lamp, the star swaddle or the pompom bin (I have it in blue – to go with the rest of the room) – and things I would really like to have! I hope this helps you in finding the perfect gift for Christmas.
For more inspiration, you can also have a look at the Smallable Christmas shop.
I wish you a great day!
1. NUMERO 74 – baby blanket
2. EGMONT – Silver Mushroom lamp
3. MUSKHANE – Pompom Bin
4. NUMAE – Grey star swaddle
5. DANISH CRAFTS - Rocking Sheep – White
6. PILEPOIL – Star carpet
PS: This blogpost was kindly sponsored by Smallable but the enthusiasm about the products remains my own.
After a little break, I am back with a new interview from my Lovely flower blogs series. It is already the 6th one and I am very happy to welcome another of my compatriots on the blog today. The lovely Claire from the blog roses by claire. I am really in love with her delicate work and pastel colours. Her work makes me think of this beautiful song from Bjork: subtle and happy!
I am glad Claire agreed to answer a couple of questions about the origin of her passion for flowers and her inspiration. I hope you enjoy it!
Talk to you soon,
Today I take you to a shop I really like in lovely Hamburg. This is a flower shop I photographed for the flower guide I wrote for the online magazine sisterMAG.
This shop is situated in the part of Hamburg called Sternschanze.
The shop is called after a building in the same street (Schulterblatt) named rote flora – a former theatre, squatted since 1989.
