My dear readers, I finally find some time again to come back to my blogging activities! Unfortunately I still don’t have an outstanding amount of time to keep on blogging here, but when I have been looking at my enamel sign this morning, a crazy thought came to my mind: My enamel house number sign is still intact and didnt seem to age even one day since the day I put it onto my facade. Realizing this astounded me. It sort of caused me not to think of how fast time went by. Since it didnt suffer from any scratch or color-fade-out, it surpassed the last five years as if they were five days. Back then, I found enamel signs on an online shop called ramsign.
And this is sort of the feeling I had in the recent years: Time went by so quickly, that is simply unbelievable. The fact that I went by my house entrance every day, seeing the enamel sign not aging, simply put an ephasis on my perception of time and reality. This morning, looking at the sign while drinking a coffee I was realizing how fast the recent five years went by.
Hence, this was the ultimate reminder for me to come back to blogging, too. I want to get back to my hobbies and come up with more content here again. So guys, I am looking forward to surprise you with more content here in the near future again. I am sorry that it took me so long to be back on stage here, but I really had a lot of stuff going on in my life. In the future, I try to keep you updated here about decoration topics as well with more personal insights in my life, so that you guys understand that it is not always easy to run a blog besides doing many other things 🙂
Would you like to find a new blog gem just a few days before Christmas? That would be nice, wouldn’t it? Well, if so, I have an early Christmas gift for you. I’ve found a GREAT blog out there, which I warmly recommend for all of you! Eager to find out more about it? Well, the blog of the week is…
This blog is absolutely extraordinary and you haven’t seen the best of Bloglandia until you’ve visited this one at least once. It’s a blog where you can read about modern interior, look at amazing photos, get advice and most of all; enjoy the well written posts. You can read about how to to make the most of a small space, how to come up with storage solutions, how to use colours for interior purpose and many other useful things. Interesting, don’t you think?
I could line up several reasons why I decided to choose Fresh Design blog as blog of the week during the Christmas week, but honestly… Why don’t you visit the blog yourself? Then you can see with your own eyes why I like it so much, and I don’t think any further explanation will be needed after that.
From the beginning I planned to post Blog of the Week every weekend, but since other posts needed their space as well, I’ve pretty much changed that plan, and now Blog of the Week may just as well be posted in the middle of the week. Some nice reading just can’t be wrong, whatever day it is, right?
It was really difficult to choose just one blog this week, since I think many blogs are even more lovely than usual at this time of the year. Christmas posts can be found all over the net and I truly love these posts. Well… I had to make a decision and I have made it, however tricky it was. Blog of the Week is…
This blog is written by a girl from London who happens to live in Sweden. She loves the Scandinavian style and you could say that the blog is quite much a celebration to the Scandinavian Home. I love it! The photos which are being posted are absolutely amazing and I love every single blog post. I love the Scandinavian style that I know so well, with white painted wooden floors, fireplaces, simplicity and light. I’m a fan of the Scandinavian style too, which is probably one reason why I decided to choose this blog, but there are many more reasons I can assure you!
The blog author writes mainly short, simple and well written posts which are easy to read. The text is always accompanied by several lovely photos and I think the text and the photos makes a great combination. Whether you’re just searching the net for some visual inspiration or if you’re searching for a good blog to read every now and then you will most likely come to like this one, as it gives you so much inspiration without requiring much time.
Both photos are borrowed from the Blog of the Week, and you will find many more of them if you pay a visit to My Scandinavian Home!
I do love our Highlander collection, that’s for sure. I understand that many of you share this love, and no wonder why… White is a very popular colour, often used for home decorating purposes nowadays, and these signs are truly classic, and they always fit in, which is a great bonus of course. If you choose a Highlander sign, you won’t have to buy a new sign just because you move to another house. The sign will look just as great there, as white is always right!
Well, since I really like the Highlander collection I wanted to show you a few samples. I wanted to share a few photos which can’t be found on our website, since these photos are taken by owners of Highlander signs. Some of them live in Europe, some in the US, but they have one thing in common. They are happy owners of signs from our Highlander collection.
Sarah is the owner of La Maison Boheme, which is a great blog by the way. She’s also the owner of this Highlander sign. I love the look of it on the brick wall and I think it matches the lantern in a great way. Black and white is always a nice combination if you ask me, and I think Sarah really knew what she did when she placed the sign and the lantern together on the wall.
Another photo that shows how good it looks when you combine black and white. Comeca (Meme) owns this name plate and she and her husband decided to get a name plate instead of a house number, as they wanted to be able to bring it when they moved. Very clever choice if you ask me! A name plate can always follow you through life (you rarely change your name). I’ve always liked the oval and round signs, and after seeing this sign I like them even more!
I could go on and show you more photos for hours and hours, but I think it may be better to save some for another day. I still have many more to show and I think it’s fun to share some beautiful photos, which may hopefully inspire you a bit every now and then. Do you have a photo to share? Don’t hesitate to send it over, so that I can show it to the readers 🙂
I have to admit that I love this chapter of the blog. I love searching through Bloglandia, trying to find new gems for you to read, get inspired by, love, and eventually return to. It’s a pleasure for me, and I hope it’s a good thing for you too, as you may find some new favourites.
I think it’s important to find a good mix of blogs, which means I’m not just choosing English blogs from the US and UK. I also try to show you some great European blogs, as I think photos and style are just as important as the texts when it comes to interior blogs. The photos can give you so much inspiration even if you don’t understand every single word in the posts, right?
With that said, I don’t have to explain why I’ve chosen a Swedish blog as the Blog of the Week. It has so much to offer. Inspiration, news, excellent photos and much more.
Maria who’s the author of the blog is a freelance writer and she’s really good at finding interior related news. If I want to know what’s happening in the world of design and interior I visit Husligheter. I can be sure to always find something great to read and look at there. Sometimes it’s photos of apartments for sale, such as the one below. It’s always fun to see her findings from Hemnet and other places where you can buy and rent apartments.
Other times it can be cool design findings, with great advice on where to shop. I love that! The cool pendant light below is just one of all the great things that she’s been writing about on her blog (it can be found at Cross Street Garage by the way).
If I could just add ten blogs to my blog roll, Husligheter would definitely be one of them. It’s informative, inspiring, beautiful and well written. I also love the fact that it’s frequently updated, and yet every single post is well planned and there’s never any nonsense to be found there. Splendid… That’s the word!
