Soaking in these photos of Trine Harbo’s glorious Copenhagen apartment. Eastern influences meets Scandinavian stark white? Sounds like a deal to me.
Last year I wrote a post about how much I liked Zooey Deschanel’s character’s bedspread on the set of her (then) new tv show New Girl was and it has been by far the most viewed post on this blog, which leads me to believe that many of you enjoy it as well! The frustrating bit is that no one could figure out where it was from! Realizing that it was probably a custom comforter made on set, I went in search for the fabric, but how easy could that be? I mean, really. There are too many fabrics in the world to ever be able to magically happen upon it in that manner.
And there you have it, friends.

If there’s one thing I love about kitchens, it’s open shelving. Seriously, it sometimes has me weak at the knees. Honestly, it may just be because of the thought of being able to vainly display my carefully-curated collection of dishes that I thoroughly adore.
Here are the best of the best, people (in my opinion.)
My couch situation right now is pretty sad. I’m definitely lucky to have a family hand-me-down and not something I found on the side of the road however. I’m also lucky that my mom has amazing taste, but the bright, purple, floral couch she picked out 15 years ago belongs more in Central Perk than it does in my earthy, mid-century cave of a house. So I am dearly looking forward to the day that we get to slap down the big bucks and purchase the couch my living room has been dying for.
If my husband and I can find the happy place between our tastes we might end up with a couch like one of these:
This couch below might be my favorite of the group. I love this color!
I think that this year I have been more into decorating the house for Christmas than any other year, probably because now I have a whole home that I feel is mine. No roommates whose style I have to consider, etc. And it has been So Fun. It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the Larson household for sure!
These classy displays are something that I’ve been keeping in mind as I decorate my own house:

How wonderful is this bedspread on the set of the New Girl? After 20 minutes of googling “zooey deschanel’s bedding on the new girl”, I still can’t figure out where it came from. Perhaps it’s just some fabric the a fancy set designer found somewhere? Well, I love it. The black background, the colorful flowers… love. It reminds me of this calendar from The House That Lars Built, which is also wonderful.
I may have said this before, but I am on the lookout for a choice ottoman/coffee table for my house. Not seriously, because the only furniture I can afford right now would be from Goodwill, but my fantasy furniture list will forever consist of one padded ottoman coffee table. Like this one from West Elm. Lovely. I love the print, although it wouldn’t go with my living room’s selection of vintage browns and greens. Here’s to you, lovely West Elm Ottoman. Cheers.
Since I’m currently living in the life stage of “always celebrating Thanksgiving in someone else’s house” I can only dream of what my Thanksgiving table would look like. Here’s a little mood board of things from Etsy that I would love to have. The table above is my inspiration. And isn’t it a lovely one?
I am new to the “poufs” (aka. rounded ottoman) world, but my living room is in dire need of additional seating. DIRE need. We have a couch and one thrifted reading chair, leaving a huge expanse of unused space, and more importantly, not a lot of places to sit! Only three to four people can sit comfortably. Floor pillows may be a bit too bohemian for me these days, so I’m thinking … poufs!
My favorites are undoubtedly these woven ones from Urban Outfitters and Ikea, respectively. The Urban Outfitters pouf is no longer available, but the Ikea one sure is. Too bad I like the taller one better … even though it was like $50 more … and is no longer available. Sigh.
But still, there are some other non-rattan poufs out there that are also nice. These amazing poufs (with feet no less!) are, needless to say, amazing, but I have absolutely no idea where they came from. Probably because I don’t speak French. If you do, check out Jennifer’s lovely blog and let me know!
These lovelies are from Sarah Hepworth’s Etsy store and are made from upcycled sweaters! How cool is that?!
