Gallery Walls

I have a houseful of freshly painted walls waiting to be decorated. The thought of putting that first nail in to hang some art, however, feels somewhat unsettling. Maybe it’s because I’m not one of those people that like to measure. It’s true, I generally just eyeball something before hanging it up – a personal quirk that might just put my husband over the edge!

If I had a few large pieces, it would be a lot easier. But I don’t. I have a bunch of small photographs and framed drawings. Good thing that I love the look of gallery walls.

Not as easy to pull off as you might think – but worth a shot. I can always cover up my mistakes with other pictures. Right?

Ikea Done Right

There are some seriously talented stylists at Ikea. Here are some shots from their blog, Livet Hemma. It just goes to show what some personal touch and great photography can do!

These rooms hardly look like they were built with an instruction manual and allen key.

For Sale: One Serious Stockholm Apartment

I still have Stockholm on my mind – and it looks like I might be staying a while. Vicariously, that is.

I could spend hours scrolling through the site of Eklund Stockolm New York – an “international” real estate agency specializing in Sweden’s most exclusive properties.
