I promise you this is the last post about my recent trip to Sweden, but I can’t resist sharing few pics I took of the Airbnb we were staying in.
Hello, here’s the second part of my Design Guide of Gothenburg. I shot so many photos that it took me a while to organise and edit all of them. (p.s. Have a look at my Flickr Album for more city and architectural photos …)
This Sunday I’ve been to the The Vintage Furniture Flea in Bethnal Green (East London). I have to say that, I haven’t appreciate Vintage Style since I moved to London. This city seems to be crazy about it. Even if I didn’t have much money to spend ( as I’m trying to save it for my trip to NY 🙂 ) I think there were few little beautiful things that make the visit worth while.
The Fair is covering furniture, homewares, textiles, lights and prints, with a focus on mid-century and vintage style. Honestly I found that there weren’t as many pieces of furniture, but the most interesting ones were on a little corner at the left side, just off the main space.
I can’t believe it’s September already.
I always loved and hated this time of the year: summer is almost over, schools starts again (sometimes I wish I was still at school), days are getting shorter, but, at the same time, it is the best moment to start with some fresh ideas, change things, clean the house, buying new schoolbooks ( do you remember the excitement of buying new notebooks, books and pencils before school starts? I can almost smell it :0 ), or simply make some plans for winter.
I recently just found out that H&M has a lovely Home Collection. A bit late in discovering this, I know, but it was a good surprise.
I found on Stylizmo (of my favourite blogs) the photo of this beautiful bookend:
I was so surprised when I found out it was from H&M…. I never knew they also have a Home collection, like Zara Home or French Connection Home. After all H&M is a Scandinavian brand, so I must check that out!
Last Sunday I was in the centre with my boyfriend for a quick shopping, before our visit to Ireland next week, and I didn’t miss the opportunity to drag him into and H&M shop.
I couldn’t find the bookend, but I discovered a lot of lovely things. The prices are also very accessible. Here’s my wishlist:
For now I bought just a new Natural Linen Duvet cover, very nice and fresh, perfect for these last London Summer days. But I’ll be back soon 🙂
Did you know H&M Home? Did you buy any good thing there? How is the quality?
