Following your heart has been high on my priority list the last few days. I’m so excited to know we’re about to make big changes to our lives that’s truly taking steps toward following our dreams.

I appreciate all of you who commented here and Facebook more than you know – so inspiring! I’d LOVE to hear more about what you are doing. As soon as more things get sorted out I’ll share more of our details.

I’ve been in New York for a few days looking at apartments with my boyfriend. Looking at apartments in NY is pretty depressing considering the insane prices for what you get. But what was just as depressing was to see how many people go through their lives and do nothing with their interiors. Too many places with the eggshell condo wall, the basic nondescript couch…one apartment looks like the next. Are we so busy we ignore what we love and always opt for what’s considered safe? I really believe years of living in an uninspired place will have a negative effect on your life. Am I wrong? Tell me? Life is short – find what you love and express it whatever it is. Here are a some suggestions that might help you LIVE LIKE YOU!LIVE LIKE YOU!
There’s a place I love to go more than anywhere in this world. And it’s home to my old house in Sweden. It’s one of those places that you arrive to and never want to leave. You get caught up in the peacefulness and can sit there and just stare at the beautiful view. This summer I’ll go for a month and I’ve promised myself to blog every day while there. There’s just too many amazing things I want to share!! Not just about Swedish design and interiors which I love, but also renovations and stories about this old house. It’s situated on Lake Torp in the village of Torp that consists of only 7 houses from the 1800’s. This is what the house looks like today—-Living in History
