We are going home to Sweden over Christmas and when my dad asked a few weeks ago if I could send a wishlist (yes, we still do that) my initial thought was "I don't really want/need anything" or "it's just going to be a hassle trying to transport things back from Sweden", thinking I finally had grown too old for enjoying the gifts as much as I used to, but then... I started thinking... and for sure there are things I want! I just had to change my mindset a bit from the usual "what would be nice to have" to "what am I really missing" or "what can't I find here that I need". I ended up with a bunch of useful stuff on my Pinterest wishlist-board, and well, after some serious browsing I ended up with quite a few items from the "what would be nice to have" category as well... But that's all right. Coming up with a wishlist is fun in itself, it's not just about getting the stuff. I ended up with so many things on my list that I'm actually splitting this into three separate posts (I know, I'm a greedy little person!) and I'm starting this off today with stuff I like for our home.
I chose a "few" things to highlight here on the blog, maybe to inspire someone else, and while compiling these collages I realized there are a few trends...
1. hanging planters (Etsy.com) / 2. frame (Lagerhaus) / 3. canvas flower pots (Granit)
4. pillow case (Society6.com) / 5. fabric baskets (Lagerhaus) / 6. watering can (Lagerhaus)
7. golden flower pots (Lagerhaus) / 8. tropical leaf prints (Etsy.com) / 9. banana-leaf shower curtain (Society6.com)
10. poster hanger (Lagerhaus) / 11. Mab Graves print (Etsy.com) / 12. cat mug (ASOS.com)
13. jewlery hanger (Etsy.com) / 14. mesh hanger (Lagerhaus) / 15. mesh basket (Granit)
16. Simon Stålenhag print (redbubble.com) / 17. box (Lagerhaus) / 18. flamingo lamp (ASOS.com)
19. bed side lamp (IKEA) / 20. Bokkei print (Society6.com)
...like how obsessed I am over banana-leaf (and other tropical) prints, that I all of a sudden like stuff ornamented with flamingos. Other than that many things are quite practical and based on real needs, like how I can't find flower pots here, and that I need more frames for posters and prints. Oh, and then the actual posters/prints. I talked about all of these artist in this post, but again, Mab Graves, Simon Stålenhag and Bokkei are just so super talented I want to wallpaper our entire house with their stuff. These three a favorites though.
Next wish-list post will be all about entertainment, stay tuned!
