The sun is shining in Gothenburg, Hiro fell asleep under a chair and here is the plate.


House renovation diary by Kate Elliott. Wish it was me.

Almost forgot, there's an interview with me at Caos magazine - 10 tip what to do with
kids in Gothenburg (in spanish).

Olly said...

Beautiful portrait and I love your wallpaper! Is it your own drawing on the wall?

Fine Little Day said...

Olly, the wallpaper is from Cole & Son. My drawing is on the pillow :)

*HealthyBibliotec said...

I miss Gothenburg. I love your aesthetic! And I love how you have mounted the Cole and Son paper. Is it hung by a frame rather than directly on the wall?

Fine Little Day said...

*HealthyBibliotec, thanks! The wallpaper hangs directly on the wall.

Diva Quilts said...

Oh my gosh - I love that wallpaper, I love Hiro (is he sleeping?) and I love that he is such a complementary colour for the wallpaper. ;)

heodeza said...

Oh, what a great photo!
I love everything in it: the trees, the matching shoehorn, the boots, the matching chair, the wallpaper, the matching Hiro...

Lady Ren said...

My son has the exact same black and white shoes- Vans are they? His are so dirty I was going to throw them in the wash- He thinks he's a cool guy.

Letter Paper Flower said...

Wow - I can't believe how lovely your home is! I thought the first photo was perhaps from a magazine chair until I saw little Hiro. Super pretty and simply and just perfect.

Your plate is so beautiful and I love the styling of the first photo. There's something so compelling about your Hiro photos - sorry I missed the last post... that was hilariously gorgeous :)) Kx

Bea said...

I love the plate, the cat and the cushion!

piilomaja said...

How is it possible that I haven’t noticed before (???) that you live in Gothenburg?
For me it is one the most romantic places on earth - it’s where I met my husband 1995;-)

Mogu is so amazing, i need to buy something more from her shop!

Ohh, vad fint det blev porträttet, träfärgen mot den skira teckningen och färgen. Härligt!

Och vilka snygga träd ni har i hallen, det var kul att se.

Hej!
Jag arbetar som chefredaktör på en nystartat sajt som heter Resa I Sverige (Premiär inom tre veckor).

Detta kommer att bli en komplett guide över vårt lands fantastiska mat- nöjes- och turistattraktioner. Men det unika med oss, om du jämför med andra typer av reseguider, är att en stor del av sajter utgörs av bloggare. På detta sätt blir sidan ”levande” och du som besökare kan ha en ”relation” till det som skrivs genom att kommentera bloggar och sedan få offentliga svar.

Skulle DU vara intresserad av att bli en av våra bloggare, där du tar dig an temat ”resor” och allt som kan ha med detta att göra? Shoppingrundor, restaurangbesök, konserter, bussresor... Skriv om dina tankar och åsikter, recensera dina upplevelser! Skriv om saker som kan tänkas vara relevant för turister i Sverige!

En stor del av vår verksamhet är att vi värnar om miljön och kommer att samarbeta med olika miljöorganisationer, vilka annonsintäkterna från din blogg kommer att gå till. Detta handlar alltså om välgörenhet för din del.

Verkar detta intressant? Återkoppla till mig på nathalie@resaisverige.se för vidare information.
