EMMAS DESIGNBLOGG

Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Saturday Sweets

I'm trying to prepare for a little summer vacation by working for two behind the scenes here, and that's why the blog posts are kind of few and far apart at the moment. I'm also preparing for the Blog'nhagen blog meet-up in Copenhagen next week, by trying to read up on the city and deciding which places I'm going to visit on my free days. Me and Annaleena are going to hang out in Copenhagen from Monday to Wednesday night, so if anyone has some city tips, feel free to share them in the comment section!
 
In other news, I am testing the new Samsung series 9 Notebook, and so far I am loving it! It's extremely lightweight, stylish, and very fast. It is actually so lightweight (less than 3 pounds/1,2 kg) that I get an urge to throw it like a frisbee every time I pick it up, but so far I have resisted... I am an Apple fan since way back in the 80's, but am seriously considering bringing the Samsung on my trip next week instead of my MacBook Pro, which feels like carrying around a pile of bricks in comparison. The only thing I'm not loving about the Samsung is the clickpad, which is acting a little weird, and I'm missing some of the gestures I use on the Mac, like pinching for zooming in on texts and photos. And then there is the Windows OS of course... Not my thing, and I will probably install Mac OS X on it very soon. But other than that, I'm very happy with the laptop!
 
Enough about that, let's look at some nice photos now! All photos from my Pinterest, where you can find the sources.

Whatever happened to the wonderful summer weather we had last week? A week ago I was laying in a deck chair, wearing a bikini and sipping on fruit smoothies. This weekend, it's 5°C and it's raining sideways... Time for hot chocolate, grilling marshmallows on sticks in the fireplace, and watching a movie. Not what I had in mind, but still pretty nice. I hope you are all having a great weekend, wherever you are and whatever the weather is like there!

I'm on my way out to the garage to find some props for a still life shot we are doing in school on Monday, but I thought I would just drop in here to give you the weekly dose of eye candy... Enjoy!

Ps. Did you notice anything odd with the top picture? It's not a photo! It's a 3D rendering. Amazing, huh?

It's been a while since I made a Saturday Sweets post, but I think it's time now! I didn't think of a theme before I chose the photos, but now that I see them all together, I believe contrasts might be the theme of today?

How are you all feeling this first Saturday in December? Do you want more Christmas inspiration or are you feeling fed up with all the garlands and stars already? I'm offering a mixed bag of Saturday sweets today, so hopefully there is something for everyone!

Saturday Sweets + a winner

I got a question this week asking for bathroom inspiration, and as I looked through my files I realized it was time to upload some of the photos to the blog so you all can enjoy them. Here you go!

In other news, the winner of the art print giveaway from L'Affiche Moderne has now been chosen. And the winner is... *drumroll* Åsa, who wants to improve her relationship to cats and is wishing for the Cats of the World print by Gemma Correll, thinking an art print could be a good place to start. Congrats, and I hope it helps!

A bag full of sweet photos matching the dreary November weather outside my window. All the colourful leaves have fallen now, and left is only grey and brown hues. A thin layer of snow would be nice, to brighten things up a bit, but since we are having unseasonably warm temperatures this autumn, that probably won't happen for a while. On the other hand, it's really nice to be able to pick mushrooms in November, while we were up to our knees in snow this time last year.

Ok, so it seems the internet Gods aren't with me. The last week has been full of internet trouble and ended with our electricity cable being cut off. Perhaps it's a sign I should just take a break from blogging. So I will. I'll be posting sporadically, when I can, but don't expect daily updates for the next few weeks.

But now, the Saturday Sweets I know you have all been waiting for. Enjoy!

We are having one of those gray and windy days today, more resembling an autumn day than the end of May. All I want to do is curl up under the covers with a book and a cup of tea. But that ain't gonna happen, because there is a house full of children to take care of, a shelf to put up, food to cook and lots of rhubarbs to take care of. I'm thinking chutney this time, after last weeks pies and compotes...

Here are some pictures that match the weather today, enjoy!

Just a random mix of eye candy today, but I thought the photos worked very well together! I hope you all have a nice weekend!
