Scandinavian wanderlust

Follow Fritha Tigerlilly's board Scandinavia on Pinterest.

Scandinavia is one of the places I have always wanted to visit. Maybe its my childhood being brought up on the Moomins or their fantastic sense of interior design, not to mention the fashion and beautiful illustration.. Actually there is usually a 'scandi chic' theme to pretty much everything I am pinning to my Pinterest boards these days!

We all have the travelling bug pretty hard at the moment and Tom and I spend many an evening wondering where we could visit next. I love the idea of watching the northern lights, seeing the fyords..the colourful houses.

Why not check out my Pinterest board, or rather if you don't want to get wanderlust then maybe don't.

Have you ever been to Scandinavia?

Our Weekend In Pictures

It was Tom's birthday over the weekend and he decided to have a quiet one especially after the excitement of last weekend. It also rained for the first time in weeks, we had a huge thunderstorm through the night which was much needed to break all this humidity.

My friend Lori told me about this new place on Gloucester Road called Bakers and Co which is inspired by the San Fransisco cafe scene. 

If you didn't know me by now I am always on the hunt for a new cafe hang out so I dragged my little family though the rain on Saturday morning to check it out

We filled our tummies with huevos rancheros (Tom and I) and banana bread (Wilf). We slurped coffees/babyccinos/juice until we realised we were in fact too full to even try one of their delicious looking cakes. 

All the more reason to come back again I guess!

I also dragged Tom vintage shopping..but did treat him to cake after!

For the Home

I'm a little addicted to Pinterest at the moment, or rather I'm a little more addicted than usual. Planning a wedding will do that to you. When I'm not pinning images of pom poms and autumnal coloured steamers I'm also peeking at beautiful interiors, my weakness. In fact think my 'for the home' board is my most pinned to board.

Here are some of my latest finds:

This white industrial bathroom is based in a warehouse converted into a bachelor pad. Whilst its very masculine I love the white against that metal and additions like the wooden mirror really soften the shape angles like the stand alone basin from My-Bathrooms.
