RÖRSTRANDSGATAN

Here's one little home tour on the first day of summer. Yes that's right I said it - it's the first day of summer today! Any summer trips planned yet? We are defiantly going to take a trip to Akureyri to visit my brother and another to Þingeyri for a wedding in August. Then in September my sister-in-law is getting married and she lives in Norway and I hope we can make it to her wedding as well. That would be a lovely end of the summer. Anyway. Back to the home I was talking about. It's for sale on Fantastic Frank. Are you surprised? I'm not, my dearest Frank always brings it. I am particularly loving the spacious, monochrome kitchen.

DIY | MARBLE PHONE CASE

So here it is - my very first DIY project by me on the blog, I very much hope you enjoy. The marble trend just keeps getting higher and higher it seems. You can make anything you can think of go marble. Even before I got my iPhone I have been lusting over these marble phone cases, now that I've had my iPhone for half a year or so I still haven't found myself a marble case in Iceland. Armed with self-adhesive marble foil and inspired by this I decided to take matters into my own hands and make myself a marble cover.

What you need to do this is 1. a phone case made out of hard plastic (I got mine from here2. marble foil available here and here for instance 3. scissors and a craft knife and lastly 4. a hair dryer and you are good to go! I found that the corners were a little bit tricky but in the end I got it right. Since the foil can be a bit stiff it may not bend the way you want it to, that's where the hair dryer comes in place. You simply heat up the areas that you need to fold for a short while with the hair dryer and that way it's easier to fold over. Good luck!

INSPIRATION | WHITE ON WHITE

I went out of town for a few days this week with my little one to visit my family. I didn't bring my computer with me, which is very nice from time to time, but I did bring my phone along - and I did a little pinning. The result you can see here. It's Easter time and that means that spring and summer is just around the corner. My mind has been tilted towards white a lot in fashion and interior, comes with the season I suppose. Normally I am a black on black kind of gal when it comes to fashion, it's probably mainly because I can't keep a white shirt clean for more than five minutes. But here are my favorite white on white on white pins. I hope you enjoy and happy Easter to you!

DIY | TOWEL HANGER

We have all seen and love the leather straps by Mathilda Clahr. They are simply gorgeous. Subsequently DIY's of a similar sort have sprouted and here is one that I really like. Using an old leather belt and turning it into a towel holder. For full instructions on how to achieve this visit Ohoh Blog.  I really like how this looks but personally I would use the straps for the purpose of a magazine holder and skip the stick.

BEDSIDE

I have followed All Is Pretty the blog for a while and I have always found it inspirational but I had never really had a look into her web shop. Now I wonder why haven't I visited sooner? She carries a small collection of lights and other decorative items. My favorite piece is this lamp in black, I also really like the styling of the picture too.

VISI BY STUDIO MACURA

When I saw these wall hooks by Studio Macura first they reminded me of corkscrews but they were actually inspired by traditional shaker coat pegs. They are made out of bleached oak or beech and come in various finishes. They can be arranged in various ways on the wall, by itself or a few together. I would love to have these in my  hallway, I am currently on the hunt for nice hooks to have in there. The Muuto Dot has been a strong candidate but these could just as well be there too.
