Appealing Things

 

A peak into the home of Swedish designer Marie Olsson Nylander. This post began life as a story about a Creative Space because of the home this image came from, but after I started to write, it became more about Appealing Things.

So as you know, I’m easily distracted by sparkly things. But an interesting piece of furniture, something that tells a story like this blue counter can have me completely head over heels in love and I won’t rest until it or something resembling it has found a place in my home. I’m a bit of a bower bird, I like to collect things that I think will enhance my home. It’s important to me that you feel at home and relaxed when you walk in. Problem is that too many things brings clutter and dust and then more housework, something of which I am not a fan. As we are in the process of moving house, it is of course the perfect opportunity to declutter and what I’ve realised is that I have a lot of work to do! Much of our furniture is salvaged or vintage and with time, all furniture begins to look tired. When that happens, the only thing to do is to strip them back and paint in a fresh new colour, or in some cases, to lightly sand and apply a coat of beeswax.
