home: IN BLACK AND WHITE

PHOTOGRAPHY




This weekend Gunnar grabbed his old Hasselblad and shot some photos on film in black and white in our new home. Simple shots of normal things that please the eye in our everyday life. I like seeing things in black and white and how everything turns into much more arty stuff than how we see it by our own eyes. It always makes me feel I want him to turn it to paper and frame it. Maybe I will.

mondays mix: HOUSE DOCTOR'S HELPING HAND

INTERIOR




The Danish brand House Doctor has always been one of my favourite to use for my work. Why? For their mixed style, eclectic mood and the way they make their catalogue to inspire their buyers. Once a year they publish their Everyday catalogue and also Moments and there you can find really great images where the styling is made for real homes and it's easy to "steal" the lay-out and displays. 
Last months we've been using their products for our upcoming project and what I like the most is that the House Doctor stuff is perfect to mix with other furniture and objects and have one of a kind things that add the touch and some wow factor in a room. I chose some photos from the new Moments catalogue to show you what I'm talking about and of course to enjoy of your own!

human life: STUDIOILSE AND THE APARTMENT

DESIGN




I really want these beautiful images and wonderful project to be found on Home and Delicious. You have probably seen it somewhere but when such a thoughtful design philosophy is the backdrop for creating interiors it's my vision to post it. Ilse Crawford and her team at Studioilse have redesigned the interior of The Apartment to reflect Ilse's design philosophy centred about human life and behaviour, where interiors are more about life rather than objects and how space becomes a home. Enjoy!

homes: SURROUNDED BY RALPH LAUREN

INTERIOR




True bohemian elegance. Beauty in every corner by Ralp Lauren Home. The Ile Saint-Louis collection is truly said to be a a mix of vintage inspired and industrial design. Great combination where the roughness is softened in grey and lilac hues and a bit of sophistication. Notice all the details: the hight of the chandelier, the great textile, the layering everywhere, the wall lamp for the dining table, the lamp over the kitchen sink and the table in the bathroom. Great ideas for your home probably?

mondays mix: FIRST PICKS

INTERIOR




It's monday and we've been living in our most wonderful house for ten days now. Gunnar has been taking some Instagrams of the process and it's still a long way to go as our things are not all there. We need time to think how to display photos, our books and magazines are not there yet and decorating have been waiting. But as it is now we're super happy and some layering happens every day! The shell is in dark and blue hues, the floors are grey in concrete and timber and all the details in white, such as the windows and the doors. Having the shell so flawless makes me feel I want to embrace that cleanliness and I don't need more stuff inside. We don't have more furniture and need some storage in our working area and that's it. But the truth is that our home isn't so much our home until we have our photographs and personal belongings with us. They tell our story.

mondays mix: TO REMEMBER AND INSPIRE

INSPIRING




When moving houses and start to live in a completely different one from what you used to is a challenging task! Challenging I say, because we lived in an open space and I was constantly trying to make some interesting places and islands to divide it a bit and cozy it up. I loved it and have so to speak over the years gained a lot of experience when it comes to open spaces. 
Now as we have moved to down town Reykjavík, the house is from 1928 and so completely different from the old one that almost nothing feels the same, I had to change course and switch my mind to see and feel how our things would fit in. I've had months to plan it and we've been working on the colour palette and mood for quite a long time, and now everything is in ... we couldn't be happier. The house is a gem and being able to be a part of such an amazing project as is has been renovating it has been a privilege. 
Following are some images I've used to get inspired but mostly I use them to remember things I have already decided; a table here and mirror there. Remember the round table in the cellar and use it by the window. Daybed is a future finding. Painting the old mirror in the wall colour and so on. Hope you like these photos as much as I do!

ADVENTURE




As you have noticed we haven't been updating Home and Delicious as often as we like recently. Some summer holiday there, for you and us. We've been a lot on the road and in the country. But our time has been spent a lot on a project we're finishing the first part tonight; we are moving and following are some new adventures. As soon as we have internet in the new house we will start making fresh posts on Home and Delicious. Have a nice weekend everybody!
