My Favorite Things…

MyFavoriteThingscollage Sheepskin on my sofa and warm woolen throws
Bright metallic tree trunks and Nordic patterns of does
Tall natural ladders with bulbs on a string
These are a few of my favorite things planete-deco.fr4 planete-deco.fr3 From From etsy boligcious.files.wordpress.com2

Cream colored linen and wire pendant lights
Stars made from tree limbs and metal lamps shining bright
Lush boxwood wreaths that form an elegant ring
These are a few of my favorite things

Scandinavian trophy heads placed high on a wall
Animal skins and cowhides reflecting the colors of fall
French Country fil de fer, such an elegant thing
These are a few of my favorite things





Books piled high in a vertical way
Lavender bunches in purples and gray
Colorful pom poms and pillows that remind me of spring
These are a few of my favorite things
When the laundry piles up
When the kids scream
When I’m feeling mad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad.

I Believe In Linen!

IBelieveInLinen@astrid.seI love the tag line on the latest catalog cover from Libeco Fabrics, “Believe In Linen.” Libeco is a leading manufacturer and distributor of Belgium linen. Like them, “I believe in Linen!” I not only believe in it, I love linen. It is my favorite fabric. It can add sophistication to a room while at the same time, exude a casual laissez-faire attitude.

Linen can be very affordable. You can find linen textiles at H&M Home and Ikea for very reasonable prices.

I even have linen in my own bedroom. I found the duvet and shams at Ikea. I inherited a cedar chest from my husband’s grandmother and it was full of linen pillow cases!
