Casual Friday

Posted on Fri, 28 Jan 2011 by KiM

It is Thursday night as I am getting this post ready and I am a little bit swamped – I need to tidy up the house and get some photos together as we’re meeting with another architect tomorrow when I’m off work for our house additions (we hadn’t heard from the first one in a while, and we just found out due to some serious family matters he’s unable to continue with our project). Luckily this shouldn’t stall our plans. Anyhoo, I thought in my haste I’d just slap up some photos I saved a while ago from the website of French magazine Campagne Décoration (suitable because I had a 3 hour French class this aft).

Stylist Mikael Beckman recently shared with us a taste of Christmas (here) at Svenskt Tenn. Now spring is on the way so with a few simple but stylish changes Mikael brings in the promise of the new season. Love his concept sketch. A quick, free and easy style that conveys the message perfectly.

We’re in Rue! Yes Kim and I answered a quick quizz about our favs and not so favs in their Blogger Side-By-Side feature. Who knew we wore the same perfume? Small world 😛 You’ll find us on page 34. Have a quick skim about Jo and Kim then settle in for a fabulous Rue. Just keeps getting more luscious.

I’ll have this….

or this. Fab photos by Elisabeth Aarhus. Love!

I have gotten a few reader requests lately having to do with televisions and how to decorate around them and make them less of an eye-sore. There are all sorts of ideas below – hide it within built-in shelving, wallpaper the wall behind it (or paint it black), place it on top of a hot pink credenza as a distraction, hang art around it (like I did)…..and at the end of the post is an example of what NOT TO DO.
