On one of my first days here back in London I walked by a store in Chelsea called ‘Designer’s Guild’ where I fell madly in love with these plates with blue paint splashes. I think they are kind of fun and different. I bought two but I am considering going back for more since I am not sure where else to buy something similar.
In the background I have one of my newest magazine reads ‘Unconditional’ and I am so pleased with the aesthetics of it. It is so beautifully made and the cover just stood out to me when I was browsing ‘Wardour News’ in Soho not that long ago.
After my recent ‘move’ to London it comes naturally to me that moving away from home and getting my own space will be one of the next phases of my life. I feel more ready than ever to take the step and I can’t stop looking at interior pictures on Tumlr and browsing all the interior stores I can find. I know that when you are 20 years old and decide to move away from home the budget is quite tight – but you can still dream right?
One of my biggest dreams has always been to get a bathtub in my home. Ever since my family and I moved from a tiny apartment to our current house this has been something that I have wanted (which clearly isn’t achievable as many Copenhagen apartments don’t even contain a proper shower) as our apartment had a bathtub. I was devastated to leave that bathtub behind (I was five years old at the time). Other than a bathtub a huge bookshelf has also been on my wish list for my upcoming apartment for a long time. It would be amazing to actually have an overview of the books that I own and I think I would read much more books then (a soft armchair would definitely also play a role when it comes to making me read more books!).
I am also madly in love with everything velvet at the moment (at least when it comes to home stuff). I would love to have a velvet sofa. Not necessarily a pink one (as the one pictured above) but maybe a dark grey or blue would be nice? But I must admit that a pink sofa would be great to get some color in there too which is another priority of mine.
Last but not least I dream of high ceilings and big windows that allow a lot of light into the apartment. Light is probably my number one priority mainly because of my huge obsession with cactuses but also for a million other reasons that I just can’t explain. Everything just looks more beautiful in lots of sunlight.
Christmas shopping can be terrible and hectic especially in the last few days leading up to Christmas eve. If you’re still in doubt about what to get your loved ones (and they haven’t given you a very detailed wish list) here are some inspiration for gifts that I think most women would love (at least I would). I hope you will all get a merry Christmas.

I’m gradually approaching an age where the dream about leaving home comes closer. If these things could just move in with me. Please!
