Color and texture combination

Wik & Walsøe, Fretex

I often move things around. Mixing and matching new colors, textures and patterns.

These seagreen ceramic items have been around for years. But never used them in my interior. It`s about time. The flower pot has a beautiful runny glaze and the vase has a retro pattern. Both of them with different shades og seagreen.

They fit so well with these brown tones. The retro mirror from Mom. The macrame net from a fleamarked. Ceramics from Fretex. Brown porcelain vase from Wik & Walsøe.

The carpenter bench has been in my house forever. I actually have two. Lucky me!

And what would an interior be without plants. Green plants. I love them.

Have a lovely day!

Make a welcoming entrance, on a low budget!

I love visiting people that have done a little extra with their entrance outside! The feeling of being welcome. Someone who has done the effort of making it cosy not only indoor, but outdoor too. I really appreciate that!

In belief that others share my opinion I have made my own decorative welcome comitee.

I`ve used what I already had, added natural elements and seasonal greens found in the woods.

Keep a low budget, it doesn`t have to cost much!

Here are a few tips:

-Tree trunks are perfect to use to get things higher up and the add a natural rustic look. The do not get worn out with time, just get prettier!

-Evergreen plants are a good investment. My favorite is this olivetree that is outdoor all year! Tujas come in all kinds of sizes. These small round ones are so decorative.

-I collect branches/ driftwood/ roots found on the shore. They are smooth and have an amazing grey color. Each their own patina. Driftwood contains alot of salt, which preserves them.

-Glass/ vases with tall edges like the `norgesglass` are perfect for candlelight. They protect the flame from the wind. Be sure they tolerate frost!

-There are lots of figurines made out of plaster, concrete etc…that can make an extra detail. Like this squirrel! It belonged to the people that sold me my house! I am so glad I kept it. 🙂

-Pick pine branches and lay straight on the porch, got to love that green!

Otherwise; lights chains make a lovely twinkle or glow. Unique flowerpots, made for outdoor use, can add a little extra. Choose evergreen plants in different hights.

The snow came over night, what a surprise! A perfect setting for this outdoor entrance decoration.

The M setting gives you so many opportunities! So you just have to dare to let go of the Auto. Please give it a try? Please read the blogpost under this one for more info and details about the workshop!
