Black and white

I love cushions on a couch, and for our living room, I am planning on having a bunch. I love black and white graphic designs, so a collection like these would be a nice start..

However, I am planning on sewing them myself, with both new and old fabrics, so it will be a growing collection. I also have a dream of finding a chair like this and if it doesn’t come striped, change the fabric.chair

Studio inspiration

As I’ve been living out of a suitcase for the past 2(!) months, I love doing research for our new place in Berlin. We won’t be moving in to our long term flat for a few months, but that doesn’t stop me from dreaming of what I want my new studio to look like.. Here are a few favorites from pinterest..

I want it to be colorful, calm, inspiring and most of all – organized! Can’t wait to start decorate, we just need to find our home first… ;)

Let’s talk about…. organising!

Being a designer and crafter, I have to have a lot of sewing things like zippers, buttons, thread, needles etc and in order to not have to spend hours looking for what I need, I have everything pretty neatly organised. It might take some time and effort fixing everything and getting it the way you want it, but I can’t tell you how nice it is to have what you need so easy to reach.¬†

I prefer to sort my things in zip locks, specially things that comes in different sizes and colours

I use these plastic boxes from IKEA, they are pretty cheap and they come in a variety of sizes. I have bigger ones for fabric. I put labels on them so that I can easily find what I am looking for.

Are you good at organising and keeping your things in order?

ps! some of the vintage zippers are for sale here!
