FINDS | Acne Paper, Wooden Matrioshkas

Photobucket
Acne paper €10, wooden matrioshkas €12.50, Ittala glass container €39.95

Transparent heavy glass, big newspaper-magazines reading material and unpainted wood. I love the look of these solid, transparent , fragile and strong materials together. All my favorite colors are represented in this picture; White, grey, black, petrol, seafoam and nude.

I’m trying this thing where I’m directing my surroundings a bit more. Make my home emptier and decorating it with functional objects like piles of my favorite books and magazines. We’ve recently painted our floor with special paint for tiles and concrete. It used to be covered with the most disgusting fake marble pastel pink tiles. With only €100 Euro’s worth of paint we’ve change the entire look of the livingroom and kitchen.(grey background picture=floor) Friends even thought it was a new concrete floor when they saw it.

I’ve tried to carry this aesthetic through to my blog a bit more, do you like the changes?

I love it! It's so simplistic and elegant in its beauty, the colours are so muted but really quite striking in their own way.
I'd love to see what your new floor looks like!

I love the grey background. It's nice to have empty space. I hate a clutter room.

I really like a running aesthetic in a blog- it's one of the things that attracts loyal readers. Your aesthetic is great.

I’d love to change the spell icons, if anyone is willing to contribute art for credit then I will change it asap. I don’t think I can get sued given that it’s for non-commercial purposes but I’m not a lawyer.
