THE LIGHT OF DAY

Photography is all about light. I think many of us, who prefer to shoot in natural light, are fed up with the dark months and very much longing for lighter and longer days. But this afternoon, when the sun was setting, I was lucky enough to catch a very warm light, and for those couple of minutes, it almost felt like a summer's evening. I'm definitely awaiting spring and not having to use a tripod all the time :) 'Cause nothing beats the actual feeling of the camera in your hands. How have you been coping with your photography this winter? /Annika
 

GORGEOUS PACKAGING

I love beautiful packaging and especially the kind I can keep and reuse as decoration or storage. Sometimes when I go shopping I catch myself wanting to buy products just for the packaging, not really needing the product at all. I like to follow thedieline.com, a package design website. They feature talented designers and you can find links to their work. A great place for graphic design  inspiration. /Annika

FAVORITE COLOR

I can't brag about being very colorful interior wise, but on the other hand, I have a hard time sticking to just a couple of colors. I like earthy tones as base colors, light, dark browns and whites, and then adding some color to that. Lately I have had a very soft spot for purple. Actually so much that, when we moved into our new house last summer, I painted the raw concrete wall in our living/library room light purple. I kept one wall and put up a dark purple/brown wallpaper to create contrasts.

The rest of the house has more neutral colors and I occasionally spice it up with colorful pillows and accessories. I do have a fun little colorful project coming up though....our tiny guest bathroom needs remodeling and I'm thinking cute blue and raw concrete walls:)

SPRING INSPIRATION

Today I made an ad for my sister's work, where I had to do a minor photo shoot of the new flowerpot spring collection. I took the opportunity to snap a few extra photos for the blog. The flower pots are from KRIFON (wholesale) and the material are mostly wood, worn looking glazed ceramics, glass, metal and terracotta with concrete looking glaze. It's fun to get new inspiration and this weekend we are of to FORMLAND (danish home accessory fair) to be even more inspired. Are any of you visiting FORMLAND this weekend? /Annika
 
 

PLANTS AS WALL ART

I like little green plants, but sometimes they look kind of tiny and sparse opposed to bigger and more artistic decorations. So I thought I could combine the two and make a fun decorative piece from little green plants. I wanted it to be a bit unusual and decided that it should function as wall art too.
I had this old bulb tray, which I thought would make a nice frame. I attached little metal flowerpots to the netting of the bulb tray, with some wire, and added some flowers. An easy project where you can make all sorts of results based on different pots and flowers.
 
Have a crafty Sunday! /Annika
