LONDON: WHY NOT VISIT A TEXTILE SHOP?

FERÐALÖG




When taking a mini break to a place like London, you want to really make the most of your time and to avoid lengthy searches for somewhere interesting, different and worthwhile to go. Hence all suggestions and advice is thankfully taken. What we have done the last two times we've been in the city is visiting the Cloth House – a world classed textile shop. Many may wonder what they would do in a shop like this while on a short city break but you won’t regret having a look around Cloth House (isn't textile what makes your home warm and cozy?). It comprises of two stores situated close to one another and each specializing in certain fabrics. Cotton and linen are the main varieties in the store where these photographs are taken. The extraordinary selection makes your imagination run away with you to places where these beautiful materials from all over the world become pillows, tablecloths, blankets…

CHEESY PASTA WITH BACON AND PEAS

FOOD




Idea of a pasta dish to cook this weekend. We had it during the Easter holiday and made our own pasta. That's not necessary at all, just by one you really like but preferably fresh. In the pasta sauce we use an Icelandic pepper-cheese and you can use instead some kind of cream cheese with pepper or mascarpone and add the pepper. Bon Appetit!

Keep on thinking about spring and summer. It was black and white in last post and now it's simply white. Failure-proof combination. Looking good, isn't it?

BLACK AND WHITE

HOME AND DELICIOUS




In Iceland we have this cute tradition of an official first day of summer. That day is today actually...so we hope you'll all have a really nice summer! We will start the summer officially, more to say the spring, with these black and white photos by Gunnar, shot on Ilford Pan F, iso 50. These are old and abandoned houses on Vatnsnes in the north-western part of the country.

INTERIOR BLISS

INTERIOR




When in desperate need for interior kick I search Pinterest and do some pinning. Like now; I haven't post for days on Home and Delicious due to other works and as I always want to have in there interesting photos and features, Pinterest is the step forward to switch my brain in the mood I need to post. That's why I'm doing interior bliss today, photos from my Pinterest session this morning. I always have this fault in my brain that so many of you are on Pinterest, but I've noticed that actually so many are not. Wandering through all the photos there, I know many of you would like to get to see some. So get in the mood with me and switch to the interior station!

FRITZ HANSEN: INSPIRATION IN HOMINESS

INTERIOR DESIGN




The Danish furniture company Fritz Hansen is welcoming guest to their home these days on the furniture fair Salone di mobile in Milan, Italy. What a charming place to get invited to. The home is their showroom and loaded with designer pieces where new design is mixed with older one and classical elements are the backdrop. Lovely colours in soft and saturated hues embrace all these beautiful things. They are the dare truth of the importance of colours and how they make other colours come to life. Well executed and truly inspiring home!

OLD SCHOOL TABLES

INTERIOR




Old school tables – one of my all time favourite piece of furniture. Wherever I see them I see their endless possibilities in making a room more beautiful. They fit almost everywhere and in every room of the house. We have one, (although not old at all in this context, but this form and size and it has played many roles in our household!) and it's now in our dining room. I painted it almost black and put it at the end of the dining table as to elongate it. And it works! Multifunctional furniture and things are exactly what should be more of in every home. The purpose often matter.

VISITING SICILY?

TRAVEL



Sicily is one of the places we dream of visiting and I wouldn't mind visiting Sicily and staying at this boutique country hotel in the foothills of Mount Etna! What a charming place. The name is Monaci delle Terre Nere and the hotel has 15 rooms set in and around the main house among olive trees, citrus trees and vineyards. For all of you interested, visit the hotel's website for all informations and more photos of this stunning place.
