I have a bit of a thing about empty walls...
Also, I feel very unbalanced and visually disturbed
if all the attention is on the mess on the floor.
So there's quite a few wall shelves in our place.
Even if there is not really so much of a need to store "stuff and things".
I like to at least pretend that I'm organized
and get stuff away and off the floor as much as possible.
Pretty boxes on the shelves only help of course!
The "Moppe" mini drawers from Ikea come in a few different sizes,
and are super easy to glue on some nice paper or paint to your very own fancy.
(Check your local paint and wallpaper shop,
there are usually offcuts in a corner somewhere
which they give away for free if you ask nicely.)
I love the freedom of adding things to the walls
that I find visually pleasing for the time being.
The great thing of course with wall shelving
is that you can change what those things are very easily,
over and over again with minimal holes in the wall.
There may come a time though when you suddenly decide
that your wall shelves have outlived that particular purpose, and that's ok.
Just try them somewhere else
and it's suddenly like a whole new piece of furniture!
Those yellow flowers on the dining table are such a treat.
(It's a shame the light was all wrong on that photo)
We had some friends over on the weekend to celebrate getting older,
(which unfortunately seems to happen every year.)
But it doesn't seem quite so bad
when you get left with a fridge full of food and wine
and flowers in every possible corner of the house!!
We are quite spoilt really!
Just looking at these wonderful flowers and thinking about our even more wonderful friends here in Gothenburg makes my cheeks hurt from grinning!
It doesn't hurt though that spring has finally arrived :D
