I’m so curious about this table and bench, I’ve never seen this design before. Can anyone shed any light on the brand? Or perhaps it’s handmade? Maybe, I’ll reach out to Sofie and ask her – I promise to come back to you if I find out!
I love the casual look of the gallery wall and piled books – it adds a wonderfully relaxed feel to the dining space (dining rooms can feel so stiff and formal sometimes, don’t you think?).
If I had an old home like this, I’d definitely consider painting the doors, skirting boards and arbitraging in a dramatic colour, I think it looks awesome and adds so much drama and interest to a space. Are you a fan of this look too?
How lovely! It’s fun to see a space with such eclectic furniture. Sofie has clearly taken their time to search for unique pieces.
Is there anything that stood out to you about her home?
I really do hope it is her home now, or I’ll be so embarrassed!
On a completely separate note, have you seen The Father with Olivia Coleman and Anthony Hopkins? Per and I went to see it at my favourite Art Deco cinema on Friday (i’s called ‘Spegeln’ and has armchairs and a little bar in the actual saloon!). For the first half of the film, I sat mesmerised by the set – the apartment was just so beautifully decorated, and I was fascinated by how the decor played a central role in the storyline.
The entire film was incredibly moving, and really struck a chord with me as my own beloved Father passed away a month ago after a year-long battle with brain cancer (Glioblastoma Multiforme GBM). This is the first time I’ve mentioned it here, I guess I just haven’t really been ready to talk about it before. I have to say, it’s been heart-breaking seeing someone so close and with such a brilliant mind – so clever, funny and kind, slowly decline. I do take some comfort that he is at peace now, even so I miss him every single day. In honour of my dad, this is probably the only time I’ll mention it – he hated a fuss and loved to keep things upbeat, I think that’s why he was such a huge fan of my blog and all my books! He’s always been my number one fan!
My heart goes out to anyone of you currently dealing with someone with ill health in your family or who have also suffered a loss. I hope this blog brings a little bubble of escape to you each day!
