Potted P L A N T wall

  Hoby Mosse house&stable from afar.

We wanted to make this divide wooden wall come alive with some plants and this is how it turned out. Francisco came up with the idea and went to work.

A heavy rain came down just after we planted and hung all the pots. 

This is how nice a plain terracotta pot can look hanging. 

All you need is a terracotta pot  and the plate for it and some chicken wire that you wrap around it and over the top.

Use the pot you have you did not know what to do with. 

Terry was a great help.

Using what you have at home, well maybe you have to get chicken wire,you can make your own plant wall. You can attach a piece of wood in the back to make it not hang at an angle. The chicken wire lets you hang the pot easily on a good hook screwed to the wooden surface. 

Are you going to try ? 
Will let you know how the plants turn out here this summer.

G A R D E N days Liseberg

Miss P and the other dogs + Missi (our cat) had friends for company at the Stable and we left for Gothenburg or to be precise - Liseberg.

 The Garden days at Liseberg was our goal and we came just at the right time to judge by this amazing Magnolia.

 Must say that the theme park Liseberg was really prepared for the event with flowers and trees in perfect bloom. The gardiners at Liseberg and all involved should be very proud of what they achieved.

 Sarah Widman trend exhibit at Liseberg Garden days

 Wallpaper that imitates green vegetation as well as greens in pots collected in a still life with lighting set like an early spring morning.

Cutting edge furn. 

Cacti and fig.Playwood boxes for pots and a black backdrop draw attention.I love the look!

 Above and below you see Sarah Widman´s interpretation of four garden trends which were explained as ....(can you pick the trend ?)

  • Nordic Graphic
  • Boho Garden 
  • Urban Greenery
  • Remake 
 What Sarah Widman presented on the main stage at Liseberg was the backbone of the Garden Days at Liseberg. 

Apart from the gardeing effort from the park itself it was the Sarah Widman exhibit that was the inspiration of the event.

Sarah Widman greenhouse in black with a dinner table and benches and plenty of cacti. 

Shaker style hanger along the wall with the extremely popular wooden cutting boards that has invaded all interioristas that do styling jobs. 

 To build a seating and/or table around a tree is a great ideá and inspiration. Have been wanting to do that around my own apple tree in the garden. Maybe this summer it will materialize...

Great companions makes for a great day. Thank you Mother and Francisco for  a rainy but wonderful evening at Liseberg. We went to see Alcazar afterwards doing their Disco Defenders show at Rondo. That was showstopper filled show. Do not miss it!!

M I L A N E S E | lightness of being around

To sit on Vincent Van Googh is now made possible in the most deligthful way, 
thanks to Dutch NLXL 
Stool designed by Piet Hein Eek that we will see a lot of. Like the use of images that is normally what NLXL does to wallpaper, but this time to furniture.

Getting lost in Milano can end up in the most wonderful way. Love this entrance!
Just had to take a picture.

This is velvet entered into cement. Just love it! What do you think ?

This armature is to my liking.A Moooi fixture that sadly costs more than 3000 €.

Love the usefulness of the table and several light sources.

NLXL really stayed with me. This wallpaper with it´s 3D effect 
of enlarged bone ware spoons I just want to find the right place imidiately!

When you hear Grey Pants you probably do not think of lighting.

 But apparently you should. These cardbord (YES!) fixtures done in the most alluring sensual forms not only are beautiful lamps, they are produced out of recycled cardboard and made with thought of every part of the process. Read more at Grey Pants.

In Sweden find Grey Pants lighting at Form12Brands

IMPORTANT to get is that these lamps are not something that feels like you use and discard. The cardboard is treated and they will last just like the design.
Really have fallen for this cardboard style of light and shadow that they create. Lovely!
