B

B is for Bliss. The balanced and beautiful letter B is the beginning of Bliss. The feeling of enchantment, joy, happiness and paradise like flow is bliss to me, green and free as nature and it might be my all time favourite word.

Do you downplay your existence?

Do you downplay your existence?

Almost daily I come across women with deep knowledge, a lot of expertise and a unique message that downplay their very existence, maybe even trying to hide, by using a font that looks like a kids first attempt to write.

My picks | How to be a wildflower

I’m in love with this book! Not just because it’s filled with stunning illustrations by Katie Daisy (who can not love them?) but because it makes me want to go outdoors, connect with nature and just explore!

Even though the book is centered around a landscape far from mine it brings out the wish to step outside and go for a nature adventure. This books is all about nature, the flowers, the trees, the butterflies and the wonders of discover it all. To see it and connect to it. To find the magic and the wonders that many of us felt as kids.

Color talk | Yellow

Color talk | Yellow

Yellow is enlightenment and creativity. It’s lemons, sunflowers, honey, mango and the color of mimosa, canaries and bees.

Yellow is a color that is loved or hated – almost never in between. Universally it’s a color of both happiness and warnings and it’s also a color favored by fast food chains.

Yellow comes in all shades, from the pale delicate Spring flowers to the scent filled colors of species like turmeric, curry and mustard.

Consistency. Uncreative or trust building?

How come you always seems to notice some of your favorites immediately in your Facebook feed?
Why do somebody seem to grab your attention easier on Instagram?
How come your eyes seems to find what your favorite pinner posts on Pinterest?
Could it be that they show up with one voice, one look and one feeling, over and over again?

Tillfälle förför |  Seduced by Tillfälle

Bladgrönt – visst är det ett ord som väcker känslor. Och det är väl kanske årstiden som gör det extra lockande. Och när jag då hittar Ikeas tillfälliga kollektion ”Tillfälle” som försöker sig på en fusion mellan skandinavisk och brasiliansk design så kommer bladgrönt till liv på det mest inspirerande sättet. Det enkla och färgglada […]

Up the wall | Upp på väggen

En hel vägg som anslagstavla! Rena drömmen tycker jag som idag kör med längder av ”snöre mellan spikar”-varianter. Företaget som har kork på ark heter Eslövs kork – nu gäller det bara att ta reda på pris och återförsäljare. Sen ska det bli ordning på mood boards, skisser och andra inspirerande ting. An entire bulletin board […]

Stock images that doesn’t suck

There is no doubt about it – images creates emotions and emotions creates reactions and reactions creates actions. So if you want to get people engaged you need to use images. Limited budgets, shortage of time and a lot of people on the same quest makes it hard to find unique images and to make your life a tiny […]
