THOUGHT OF THE DAY : BIRTHDAY.



"Make A Wish," from Rifle Paper Co.. Since today is my birthday, I was planning on doing a birthday-themed best of the week, but instead I will curl up on the couch with a movie and a drink. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, folks!

INTERIOR INSPIRATION : JAG ÄLSKAR SWEDEN.



Whenever I am in need for some home inspiration, I always go back to Sweden. I feel like our new home finally has my favorite qualities of Swedish design- minimalism, a mixture of vintage and modern, open space, pops of color, and lots of light. I still dream of having a home in the Swedish countryside someday- or a little home in Gothenburg or Stockholm like any of the ones above.
