CANDLES & AUTUMN GREENS

Green is such a wonderful color. I love how it fit all the seasons and how you can just mix it up with pretty much any color you can imagine. I especially love it with these brown tones. This is an easy table decor and I like how easily I can move it around, if I need to use the table. 
 
 
Even though I like to decorate, being able to use my things and my furniture has top priority. This table is a good example of serving its purpose well. I currently live in an apartment, where extra room is a luxury, we cant afford :-), and
 
 
a while ago my partner and I built this huge table, a perfect table for dinner parties, but we have been using this table for pretty much every thing. Sure it looks awesome when decorated, but I like how we enjoy using this table. It has really become a cherished piece of furniture.
 
 
Some time ago I found these big jars, which I use for candles. It gives such a nice glow and interesting shadows, when you keep the candles like that. It also makes beautiful reflections, because of the glass and it looks like you have several candles lit. Super cozy this time a year.
 
 
Happy Decorating Everyone!

CROCHETED PUMPKINS AND AUTUMN WINDS

We haven't been doing a lot of Halloween decorating here. Halloween is not really celebrated here, as it is in North America. Although the stores are more and more catching on to the trend, it tends to be more about a fun and decorative thing here.
 
 
But the other day my sister came over with this bag of fluffy, cute, crocheted pumpkins she'd made and wanted me to photograph them. Of course I wanted it to be in a slightly different environment and since the weather has been very sunny lately, with crisp colors and clear skies,
I thought the beach would be the perfect spot.
 
 
So I dragged all the pumpkins and a chair down to the beach, to give this photo shoot a try. But we all know that with beautiful Autumn days, you sometimes get these very cold and brisk Autumn winds. And it was one of those days. 
 
 
But I was determined to make this work and most of it went really well... until this one situation; I had placed the chair close to the water, with the two bigger pumpkins on the seat, and I was really getting in to my photo mode, when I saw through the lens, how the chair and pumpkins got knocked over by the wind.
 
 
For a moment I just stood still and watched the situation unfold...until I realized how fast the wind had made these crocheted pumpkins accelerate over the sand and towards the sea. And my only thought was; how was I ever going to explain to my sister, that the crocheted pumpkins, which she had spent a lot of time making, just suddenly had disappeared and sat sail for greener pastures.
 
 
So I sprinted...and my high school memories of the 60 meter race, which I did fairly well back then, came back to me, clear as it was yesterday, and carried me up to a speed, that I don't remember having reached, in any situation, over the last 15 years.
 
 
And I won. I tackled those furry pumpkins, rescued them from the cold sea and carried them back to safety, thinking that I probably shouldn't tell my sister about this.
She would never ever, trust me with her creations again  :)
 
May you all have a fun and scary Halloween.

AUTUMN BEACH AND RECLAIMED WOOD

I love living near the beach, but it sometimes can be very harsh and windy when Autumn arrives. Nonetheless does is offer a range of beautiful colors during this season. It's also a great place for exploring materials and structures, which can be used when designing furniture and interiors.
 
 
Lately my partner and I have been quite busy making furniture from reclaimed wood. We love finding an odd or beautiful piece of wood and then turning it into something functional. Giving it a new purpose.
 

In this image collage you can see some shots of a coffee table we made from pallet wood. I just love how it looks like we just found it on the beach. This grayish brown color is a favorite of mine. The table has yet to be lacquered and I will post pictures later of the finished piece.

 
 
May you all have a wonderful weekend!

FRIDAY INSPIRATION

 
 

PUMPKIN TIME

Another week has passed and Autumn is getting closer. It's getting colder and I have started to get these cravings for hot drinks all the time, especially chocolate. It's somehow cozier to sit and work, when you have a hot cup of something next to you. Anyway...I like this coming season. I like the fact that, there's so much of natures seeds and fruits, you can use in your decorations during this season. It creates a very earthy and homey feel.

Pumpkins are very Autumn. But so are the colors. The typical green, yellow and orange can be very bright. I like more subtle colors in my home, so these white, creamy colored pumpkins are prefect if you like this style.

The other night I had this dream about a clock, that I would make. So of course I had to try it out and see if I could re-create the image I had in the dream. And this is pretty much how it looked. It has actually become sort of a prototype, because we are thinking of selling these in the store. Do you think we should have this clock in the store? 

As you might have read, we are doing some changes to our site, and we are soon gonna move this blog to the precioussister.com site, where we also have our store. That site has been closed for most of 2011, but we are hopefully soon done and things will be up and running again. We will let you know, when we move this blog and there will be links to the new site.

 
We hope you all have a wonderful weekend. See you next week!

FRUIT BOWLS

This post is kind of a continuation of our previous post, since we are still decorating with chrysanthemums. Now don't go thinking that we have become chrysanthemum crazy or anything, it's just that they are so easy to work with and the possibilities seems to be pretty endless with these kind of flowers :)
 
This is also another way to decorate with flowers. Very casually placed in a bowl, together with some other decorative objects, they make an adorable and somewhat different table decoration or arrangement. It's all about the contrasts.
 
 
 They are made the same way as the other chrysanthemum decoration, but using a ball shaped piece of flower foam instead.
 
 
 
Since this looks like a fruit bowl, you might want to let people know they are for decoration purpose only and not of the edible kind :)
 
Have a fabulous weekend. / Annika & Sussi

 

CLAY POTS & APOLOGIES

 
Hello dear readers, are you still with us ? :)
We hope you're all well and that you have enjoyed the summer. We have had some beautiful days here, but it has certainly also been a very wet summer here in Denmark. Now we are looking forward to some late summer days and hopefully a beautiful Autumn. 
We want to apologize for our absence during this summer. Lots of stuff has happened and sometimes you just don't get to do everything as planned. But we have missed posting on our blog and we are excited about getting back to creating some inspiration for you. We also have some changes going on to our website. Hopefully that will soon be done, but we will tell you more about that later. 
 
May you all have a gorgeous Tuesday

WEDDING INSPIRATION

Wedding decoration can be really inspirational. There are so many beautiful sites out there, where you can get great ideas for the home, a dinner party or maybe they'll even spark the idea of redoing your bedroom.
We have a small family wedding coming up and we are researching ideas for table decorations and the bridal bouquet. It's a fun and very enjoyable task :-) Some of our favorite sites are Portobello Bride. What are you favorite wedding sites?
 
Have a great Monday! /Annika & Sussi
