So, do you think the summer is officially over or you’re watching the rain outside still hoping you’ll get to swim a couple of times more this year?
We got to admit we love Indian summer. If only we can for sure say we’ll get to enjoy it by the sea somewhere.
We had some time off this August. It was short but sweet and we still wish it could’ve lasted a bit longer. But when you know you’re somewhere for a short period of time you plan your time better. And we did just that!
Now we’re back in the city, happy that our plants survived our time off. We’re helping our sisters decorate a toddler bedroom and waiting for the wall tiles for Tina’s kitchen and for Nina’s kitchen too (can’t wait for these makeovers).
Also, I was so sad my quick vacation was over I did some online shopping to cure the depression.
So we decided to make the August list of our favourites.
1: Beautiful H&M home patterned duvet cover set in closely-woven organic cotton. You can choose lots of different colours/patterns and cushions with the faces of different animals like frog, fox, rabbit, bear. This one is our favourite. :: CONSCIOUS Patterned duvet cover set
2: Yes, we love kids section in H&M home and these days we spend a lot of time on their page. Just look at this cloud shape cushion! Maybe it’s ok for a grown-up bed too? :: Cloud-shaped cushion
3: Now it’s time for the plants part of the list. We love pots that come with the stand and Stradivarius has this beautiful pink one – just imagine a Bunny Ear Cactus in it – perfect for #plantsonpink :: Flowerpot with stand
4: Or this beautiful pot in earthy tones from Jysk with a simple and minimalistic metallic stand :: MANDRUP plant pot w/stand
5: And Jysk again with this beautiful grey pot that comes with a bit more asymmetrical stand so you can choose how high you want your plant to stand :: HANNES plant pot w/stand
6: These old-school HAY kitchen scissors, made of iron, ended up being great for gardening and trimming our home plants, plus they are so affordable and look great. We would buy them just to look at them every single day :: Kitchen scissors
7: Of course we had to have an IKEA item on our list. This is the mirror that Tina finally put in her powder room after she made some not so great purchases. It’s a perfect fit, just wait for an updated photo on our Instagram. The mirror can be placed on a table or chest of drawers, or hung on the wall. You choose! :: IKORNNES table mirror
8: And finnaly the one(s) that cured my deppression – The Kinfolk books.
