Soft minimalism at its best. Architect and co-owner of NORM ARCHITECTS, Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and his family keeping the Christmas decoration to a minimum in their home, using natural elements and a tree without ornaments. I love it!

I have been following RIIKKA, SUSANNA and PINJA's latest project on INSTAGRAM for quite a while now, and finally their GREEN HOME BOOK is here. With green plant tips and inspiring images of plants in real Finnish homes, I am sure this book is just as inspiring and beautiful as eeeverything else Kantinkoski, Vento and Forsman creates. This book would be great as a Christmas gift for the interior enthusiast, someone who loves green plants or someone who just need some inspiration on how to decorate with plants and making their interiors more personal. I believe the real homes are the most inspiring ones! The book is available for purchase at ADLIBRIS.
Jules Villbrandt, the founder of HERZ & BLUT, has styled and photographed LALABERLIN's latest collection KUFIYA NOIRE. Perfectly captured in the home of Interior Consultant SANTIAGO BROTONS. Not only do I want all the textile pieces from the exclusive Kufiya Noire collection, I also want to paint my walls in that soft warm green tone. Sigh!
Kicking Monday morning off with some lovely work space inspiration. I love how these simple shelves work as an extended desktop in the living room. Also, the way the workspace harmoniously floats into the living room is just so clever. I could definitely move right in!
I have been browsing the web for a new floor lamp lately, and came across the beautiful home of furniture and lightening design studio DOUGLAS & BEC, and their beautiful New Zealand family HOME. The carefully curated home is almost entirely furnished with pieces by the family's making. The combination of functionalism and softness perfectly curated in this home is taking my breath away! For a complete home tour pop on over to SIGHT UNSEEN!
The last few years I have become more and more conscious about what goes on my skin and in my body. I try to eat clean, as well as use mostly organic and natural cosmetic products. Earlier this summer I fell in love with a natural perfume by NUDEITE. And lately I have been trying out a wonderful donkey milk soap by VOLUME FRANCE.
VOLUME FRANCE is a small volume producer of natural donkey milk soap bars. The brand was established in 2015 by Laetitia who designs and manufactures the soaps with raw milk from her OWN DONKEYS IN ASINERIE, FRANCE. Every soap bar is carefully handmade and unique, and they come in three different kinds: Nature, Green Bamboo and Fig Leaves.
I chose the Red Clay with Fig Leaves and I must say I have rarely used a more moisturizing soap. It gives a refreshing feel in addition to nourish the skin instead of stripping it like a lot of cleansing products do. You can actually feel the moisturizing effect at once you start to use it. So soft! The design is also very appealing in a minimalistic and simple way, beautifully wrapped in unbleached paper. Pop on over to VOLUME FRANCE to read more about the delicate process and to get to know each of the donkeys.

A while back I came across NUDEITE PARFUM on INSTAGRAM. The most beautiful handmade ceramic vessels in the softest color range really caught my eye. The vessels are containing the most mesmerizing perfume oils.
NUDEITE PARFUM is a contemporary perfume house and design collective, showcasing and collaborating with talented designers and craftsmen to develop beautiful, natural perfume. Focusing on natural beauty, their perfumes and body butters are entirely natural and organic, containing high quality essential oils. Total luxe!
First of all I love their eco friendly vision. A beauty collection that is all natural, kind to your skin, body and the environment. But also a perfume bottle that you want to display, collect and reuse. That is quite unique.
I received a sample of KISS THE SKY. "A summery, chilled vibe... a little bohemian, yet incredibly fresh and vibrant. This fragrance transports you to those heady summer days in the sun, a reminder of the smell of ripened plums as they fall to the ground in the heat of the summer sun..." It has a lovely soft smell, -not too sweet, not too heavy. And the oil has a wonderful smooth almost nourishing feel to my sensitive skin. There are a total of 12 different scents, available as oils, solid perfume, body butter or as a handy roll on.
