Spring Shedding Time (Before and After pics)

Oh my! We are heading towards spring and you can really see this in our house! Our little fluff ball Molly is shedding her winter fur, so there are small fur fluffs all over our house. So today I decided to help her out a bit and do our spring comb through. Can you believe the pile of fluff?!? It's bigger than the dog! And Mollys size shrunk by half! She's like a whole new dog. And she of course got immensely rewarded for being such a good dog during the ordeal.

So happy it's done

She can't quite believe the pile herself

Am I too early?

I know it might be a bit early... But I did buy tulips already in January because I wanted spring.. So the fact that I decorated for Easter already last weekend isn't that bad right? My behavior might have something to do with what I wrote about in my last blog post (click!)

How about you? Have you done some Easter decorating already or are you waiting for Easter to come first?

My Favorite Season

I've always loved summer the most of all the seasons. Living in Finland it feels like we have darkness 80% of the year. Most years we have really cold weather and if the winter is a good one, we have a lot of snow.

For me summer is freedom and happiness. Summer is childhood and family. Summer is friends and evenings. Summer is serenity and peacefulness.

I love all about summer! The food, the wine, the sun, the road trips, the laughters, the light, the summer cottages, the camping trips, the countryside, the sea..

I wish we had summer all year around!

I wish we had summer now!

What is your favorite season?

Throwback to Past Interior Styles (So Embarrassing)

Even tough I've been interested in interior my whole life, I can't say I've been good at it for as long..
But practice makes the master, right?

So as I promised (even though this really is a bit embarrassing for me), I will now share some pictures from my previous interior styles. I'm sorry to say (but luckily for me), I couldn't find any pictures of my absolute worst interiors, since I didn't photograph spaces and decor at that time. I started taking pictures of our home in 2012 when I started my first blog, there you can find a lot more pictures of my previous interior styles.

Let's have a look!

I'll start out with most recent styles and end up with the oldest and worst. So I'm starting out in year 2016 in our old home. At this time our home started going from my previous romantic styles towards a more Scandinavian and simpler look.

In the beginning of 2015 I still had a lot of my previous French Brocante style going on, but towards summer I calmed it down. For instance I redid my bedroom as a project for my interior school. I remember being so happy with this new look for our bedroom. Romantic, but not overly shabby.

From summer 2014 to autumn in 2015 I had my French Brocante interior where everything was really worn down. I loved to collect antique finds at flea markets, antique shops and fairs. And I remember dreaming about visiting a real Brocante market in France.

In the end of 2013 my style was a happy mix of pastels and shabby chic. I remember falling for GreenGate at this time, and I've loved them since then!

From 2012 to the beginning of 2013 I had a really colorful phase. I loved colors, especially turquoise and pink. I also liked the mix of purple and black, as you can see in the bedroom. 

At the same time our home office looked like this. I think this is the worst of them all. But I was really proud of this room at that time.

And before this, I can promise you, it was a lot worse, a lot! I had my crazy pink princess kind of phase. But I won't be able to show that since I wasn't that into photography at that time. The only pictures I have are of my friends.

It was pretty cool doing this throwback! I would really like to see someone else try this as well! Wouldn't it, for instance, be fun to see interior influensers showing their old styles! I dare you all to try this! And leave me a comment below if you do! I'll be sure to check it out!

And if you're interested in seeing my current interior style you can find it in a previous post (Click!) I also have a lot of pictures on Instagram.
