Simple yet fun DIY Easter project!

I love this time of the year don't you? The sun's shining, the spring flowers are out, the nights are longer....and there's chocolate everywhere. What could possibly be better?! Oh and there's that delicious Easter lunch to look forward to on Sunday too. In case you're in charge of laying the table for the big event - here's some perfectly Danish Easter egg painting inspiration from Ferm Living to enjoy. Simple yet fun and the result is oh so cool.

Ferm Living

Here are my tips for egg painting:

- add eggs to water and simmer for 10 minutes before removing and placing in cold water
- lay out some newspaper to protect your surface
- use a brush and acrylic paint to decorate the egg, painting one half first and let it dry before painting the other half.
- to get a beautiful result for your easter table stick to one colour scheme for all your eggs but use different patterns.

Time to get cracking....(sorry)

I hope you have a very Happy Easter and see you Monday!

A perfect Swedish apartment for a spring day

I've finally arrived in London for my Easter holidays, yay! It's so lovely to be here! Before I dash off to enjoy the spring sunshine with family and friends I had to share this one room Swedish apartment with you. It's been painted almost entirely in white to make the space appear larger and then the owners have added fabrics in grey and Svenskt tenn pattern to add warmth.  Perfect inspiration for a beautiful spring day!

I spy Muuto dots hangers and a throw and boxes from Hay.

I hope you've got some lovely plans for the easter holiday and that the sun shines for you! I'll be nipping in tomorrow with a fun Danish easter post so stop by if you have the time.

Until then have an eggcellent (sorry) day!

The fabulous Flinders Lane Apartment

The plywood trend has been popular for a while now, and I can see why. Flinders Lane Apartment in Melbourne has been artfully designed by Claire Cousins, Dita Beluli and Jessie Fowler to create a family space on a small budget. The owners were looking to create two bedrooms out of one o make space for a baby. Plywood joinery has been used to define the two spaces instead of building actual walls. The plywood also cleverly doubles up as storage space. I love the way the apartment has been finished including the pretty touches of salmon.  What a massively cool family home!

Looking at this apartment (along with this clever small living space, a fab Malmö home, House for Mother and this stunning monochrome and plywood home) makes me start to wonder where I could use plywood in my own home! How about you?

Hope you have a lovely day!
