What can I say today about my guest?
I’m so pleased to introduce you ( for the few that doesn’t know her) to Monika’s World.
I remember I won my first giveaway with her… some beautiful Christmas Ornaments!
She’s a Swedish designer living in US, and as she say ” … being a native of Sweden, I always bring a sense of Swedish to everything I do. I can’t help it, it is part of my DNA.”
That’s why I love her!
Hello all! Monika from Splendid Willow here. I am delighted to be invited to contribute with a guest post on Gaia’s lovely blog. I met Gaia very early in my blog days and we have always had fun together. I am a loyal fan of both her and her blog.
There are so many fun things going on in the world of design. As a happy Swede living in the US I find myself hopping between those countries the most.
Here are a few things I Am Going Nuts for right now.
I have never been all that keen on bar trays and trolleys in my home. But this corner I love. A large wicker basket gets to work as a bartender next to a favorite leather reading chair. I also love the totally unexpected photograph on the wall.
When I saw that my dear friend Sarah over at Haute Design listed this Michael Kors bag as one of her must haves, I gasped. That is the bag I HAVE BEEN LOOKING ALL OVER FOR! Love the cognac color and all the details. And it does not cost a million bucks.
I love these Toplight candleholders that give new life to bottles. Designed by Lena Bergström for Design House Stockholm. Imagine these holders in dark blue glass water bottles.
I never seem to be able to get a few white ledges to move in with me! I went to Ikea this weekend but they were sold out of the long white ones. “When they come home”, I will use them to display both books and artwork.
So far, I have never incorporated a flag as part of my interiors at home. But this display totally caught my attention and made me want something similar. A simple black and white chess patterned signal flag representing the letter N and communicating “No”. Perhaps in my case — no to stress! Admit that you will go straight to Ebay now!
Thank you for having me here today! Hugs to all your readers and an extra warm hug to you Gaia!
Thank you Monika! You just made my day!
Go visit her blog… you’ll love it as I do!
good Luck with your new adventure that I hope you’ll biring you in Italy too!
