Planting spring flowers outside

While I´m waiting for my spring flower bulbs to bloom (they have started to sprout…yay!), I´ve bought some spring flowers for our entrance and terrace to get an earlier start for bees and me. It feels good to remove the dead flowers from late Autumn and replace them with new fresh ones so it looks nice around the house again.

Have you planted any flowers outside yet?

THE NEW PANTHELLA MINI CHROME EDITION

As you all probably know by now; I´m a big fan of Louis Poulsen´s beautiful lamps! I have bought quite a collection of their lamps over the years, and one of the first Louis Poulsen lamps that I bought was the iconic Panthella floor lamp back in 2013. So you can just imagine how excited I am now that they have made a Panthella MINI Chrome edition of Verner Panton’s head-turning sculptural lamp – a true mirror image of an icon first designed in 1971.

What I love about the MINI version of the Panthella table lamp is that it fits surfaces where space is limited,  like in for example windowsills, nightstands or in/on a shelf like I have here. With its elegant metallic finish, it will also stand out like a diamond in the room.

Another cool feature the Panthella MINI has is the built-in-LED technology and the stepless dimming offers easy adjustability from 15 to 100%. The light also features a timer that can be set to turn the lamp off after 4 or 8 hours – how cool is that?

For me, it was love at first sight when I saw the Panthella MINI Chrome. What do you think of this new lamp?

I´m happy to say that I´m leaving this view for a few days to celebrate my birthday (turning 39 on 13th of April ) in Barcelona! It´s going to be great spending time with my husband in this beautiful city, and hopefully we will get lovely weather so we get that spring feeling that we have been longing for quite some time now..

Stay tuned for new updates here on my blog as I´m introducing a new lamp-crush tomorrow and some birthday wishes on Friday.

Maybe it´s because of all the snow we still have outside, but I suddenly felt the urge to buy some new plants for our home. One of them is this big “Strelitzia Nicolai” (or better knows as the “giant white bird of paradise” or “wild banana”).

I saw this plant everywhere when I was in Los Angeles in February, both inside and outside, and I dreamt of having one in my own house. So when I found this one in a local flower shop last week, I just had to buy one! It´s beautiful, right? And it fits perfectly in this corner of our living room I think.

I´m not good with having much colors here in my home, but I think green plants are a nice way to bring some color and life to a home. A little tip if you have a white, grey and black home : )
