Back to my self

In my whole life my biggest hobbies and interests always been very creative. Since I can remember I've been painting, at home, in the evenings at art courses, in school and later on I chose an art high school. I was dreaming about continuing and try to get in to the big art schools in Sweden or London, but then something happened... I started to model, got away from my inner self and to survive in a world where I didn't really belong got more important.
The last year I felt an urge to start again, but after almost ten years without practicing I got scared. Afraid I'll not be able anymore, that I lost the skill. But then yesterday I got my self a starting kit and I have now prepared everything. I can finally start!

The room is complete

We finally found the perfect vetrinetta for our living room. After searching on markets and over Internet I finally ran in to it in my favorite house shop here in Piacenza. Now I have more space for all my flea market bargains that I can not do without :)

Summer is over

After more than a month of laziness we are now back home since a week. Stefano's parents dog left us today and this weekend was the last one on the seaside. The weather is still very warm and sunny but in my mind we are going towards autumn. And I have to admit that I'm looking forward to dark and cosy evenings at home, candle lights and long dinners.
We have some new "friends" in our house after all flea-markets we've been running around at :) and here I just give you an idea of the adds.

My mothers bohemian vintage

If you by any chance pass by the area Skania in the south of Sweden you have to take a trip to the small village Jonstorp to visit my mothers super cute and bohemian vintage / flea market Utsökt (exquisite).
You'll find it in our flowery romantic garden and you can find anything from clothes and accessories to old porcelain and furniture. Everything to good prices and very well selected.

The address is: Jonstorpsvägen 58a, Jonstorp (Höganäs)

Garden dreams

Before I started modelling and travel the world I had a dream of becoming a Garden Architect. I have been growing up with gardens and I love the physical work that is needed to keep it in order, that in combination with my passion for beauty and design would make it a perfect job for me. Life took me in a different direction though, but it's never too late right... At leats I really hope to have my own garden one day :)
Can't wait to go to Sweden next week to put my bare feet in the grass of my parents summer garden <3

A picture made by the swedish artist Elsa Beskow. It describes so well my romantic image of the countryside and gardening :)

Found some lovely inspiration pics at Pinterest:

Can't get enough of pillows!!! It's such a nice and easy way to change a room. In no time a boring room can become really cosy or with new colors or patterns it can totally change its look.
At Ivory we are selling very beautiful hanmade pillows right now and of course I allready got a pair for my home :)

Pillows at Ivory, 50€ each.

Some pillow inspiration borrowed from Pinterest:
