summer garden with bohemian greenhouse, vines and figtree

I haven’t written in ages but have decided to change that now. I have some pictures that I took when I was back in Sweden in August, they’re from my parents’ garden.

Bohemian terrace

I’m at my parents house in the south of sweden. They’ve changed the terrace of the back of the house a bit, the stairs are now towards the west side of the garden and the door to the stairs is an old industrial window. The “wall” next to it is an old door. Next to the stairs there’s a fig tree and there are grapevines under the roof. I love the mix of the industrial window, the vintage door, the oriental candle holder hanging from the roof and the bohemian disorder of baskets in the rattan sideboard.

saturday afternoon with wine, chocolate, kitten and pinterest

After a really though week at work and then a bit dramatic Saturday morning, I don’t feel like doing anything else than mindless pinterest browsing. With accompanying wine, chocolate and kitten cuddling.

Here are some pictures that caught my eye on pinterest today.

Isn’t the one above absolutely amazing? It’s by Denise Grünstein, and there are so many other beautiful photos by her that I found but I’m not sure I’m actually allowed to put them here on the blog (but one won’t hurt if I link to her agency, right..?) There are more here: cameralink, and you just have to check them out.

upcycled ideas for the garden

My parents have been visiting from Sweden, which is why I haven’t posted anything for a while. But when they were here we visited some places that I want to share with you, like the café and restaurant Canvas & Cream which is here in Forest Hill. They have a beautiful backyard that is perfect for the summer and if you go there you will find loads of upcycling inspiration for the garden (or inside!).

So if you have a garden, why don’t you hang some colourful bottles from a string, fill the garden with herbs, make some large wooden balls from sticks, change the door knobs to cute ones, randomly place some odd porcelain items you’ve found at your grandma’s and put whiskey decanters on handmade shelves?

I’ve been away camping in Wales, which was absolutely wonderful! We had a couple of really sunny days at the Kaya festival in Bangor and then we went hiking in the rain.

This was our tent that we proudly put up. Maybe not as bohemian and beautiful as the ones below but probably more rain proof. They are very nice to look at though.

weekend

this weekend has consisted of unexpected artsy launch party in Dulwich, dinner with friends and open art studios on Havelock Walk in Forest Hill. 

We didn’t know the launch party was going to be a big house with painted street art, lots of people, free cocktails and amazing garden with lots of art. Good surprise.

My dad grows grapevines on the roof of the terrace which he actually also makes wine of – despite the Swedish weather!
