A beautiful shop that makes you smile

I came by the shop Sukha several times, but always when I didn't have time, and that was hard because it looked so inviting to me. A few days agoI went in and they have so many things that made me smile! It's a mix of vintage and new, books, furniture, accessories and clothes (lovely brands like Antik Batik and Humanoid). All chosen with great eye for detail and beauty! The space itself is really basic and light so everything comes out very well! 
Nice to know is that the name of the  shop means "Joy of life" in Sanskrit.

Inspiring holiday home near Copenhagen

I remember how beautiful the landscape was when I went to the Louisiana museum near Copenhagen by train. I was fascinated by the seaside without dunes and how calm the water was, but it looked so peaceful. When I red this article it remind me of that day and how special Scandinavia is to me. How great would it be to spend your weekends in a place like this....

What you can do with yellow

I really like the colour yellow lately and I want to add a bit to my interior. Especially combined with grey it forms a great match. I found a piece about this colour on the website of kleurinspiratie and in their opinion it is the colour of 2011. Yellow stands for a fresh look on the future, optimism an gives a positive feeling. That sounds good to me! Here's my yellow inspiration.
