GREAT MIRRORS OF 2016

INTERIOR I DECORATION




"If you only have mirrors for checking your face or your outfits, you don't have enough mirrors in your life," says Deborah Needleman in Perfectly imperfect home. It's so true. "Most rooms can benefit from a mirror, as most lives can benefit from the extra sparkle." Use mirrors to reflect light, to decorate, for glamour. Whether small or big, in the kitchen or the bedroom, mirrors are so much a must in creating an atmosphere of air or drama, light or reflection. Many beautiful mirrors got my attention last year and following are some of the best and useful ideas to think of to add some sparkle in your life. Read more.

GREAT COLOURS OF 2016

INTERIORS I COLOURS




What's the easiest way to transform your home? With paint. Nothing else does as much difference as changing colours completely. Wheter you're on the dark side or a tad lighter one, colours just make the space. There are always some colours more popular each year than others, but choosing colours for your habitat, is much more about what you love than what others like. Your choice says so much about your style and how you want your home to be. Don't be afraid to use colours, if hesitant, buy samples first to try on some walls. See the colour in different light, how it fits your furniture, if you like it overall. Following are some beautiful spaces in amazing colours from last year. Read more to see all the colours.

NEW YEAR – SLOW LIFE

LIVING I SLOW LIFE




Happy new year 2017 dear Home and Delicious readers. We want to thank you your loyalty and finding in H&D something you relate to. New year is an empty sheet to write your story, a lot is going to happen, highs and lows. Home and Delicious will finally move places and  get a new and better home for it's stories and some better place to grow. 
Life is quite dark and grey in Reykjavík at the moment and today it's supposed to be quite bad weather. For first days of a new year I always find it valuable to take it a bit slowly, appreciate life and think of the months ahead and how I would like them to be. Working from home make it possible for me to sit in the dark, like now when writing this, sipping my tea and just be. I really am thankful for that and Gunnar and I have through the years work hard for making it possible for us to live like that. It has high and lows, pros and cons. But the positive effects are what we seek. 
I prefer slow and productive life without busyness. Positive mind and personal habitat. That's Home and Delicious way of being.

HOW TO MAKE WARM AND COZY FOR CHRISTMAS?

INTERIORS I RUGS






Well, the question many are asking: how to make it even more cozy for Christmas?  What to give the home as a Christmas present? I would say rugs. Rugs do the difference when the feeling is like wanting some more warmth and cozyness inside. One big rug. Or two medium sized put together. One really big and one medium sized on top. One big and one medium together. Endless possibilities like you can see on the photos following. But notice photo number two, below, the alignment of the rug. How a big part of the rug is behind the chairs and used for some other display, really cool. Also the idea in the bedroom, like it a lot, not just two small on each side of the bed. Use the imagination when putting rugs together. You can never have too many rugs! Read more to see all the photos.

THAT CHRISTMAS SPIRIT!

INTERIOR I CHRISTMAS




Christmas spirit seems to be all over and everywhere. People are decorating earlier I think than usual and putting up the Christmas tree in the beginning of December, just to enjoy it a bit longer then a few days like before. The whole of December has started to become more like a feast for four weeks, as people like the festive atmosphere, lights and candles to get the darkest days more bright. Following are photos that are really festive though not crowded in Christmas decoration. Click here to see the photos from Vtwohnen.
