Second of April already! And if anyone fooled me yesterday cos of April Fools I wouldn’t have even noticed. Life is keeping me busy as I wrap up things in the studio (don’t worry we will still be open) to head off to Sweden on a working holiday with my small ones (yes my partner is joining us for a short stay so I guess that will be the holiday bit)…
It has been too many years since I have celebrated Easter the Swedish way and I am excited about experiencing the beautiful Swedish spring – Seeing the long dark winter turn into brisk sunny days and trees empty of leaves come to life. Funnily enough I’m flying from the Australian autumn where days are far warmer than the spring days to come…
As before any trip I am guilty of working too many hours in the lead up and have almost forgotten decorate for Easter! I am feeling torn whether I should embrace the colourful-pastel-feather Easter for my children or let them celebrate more in their mummy’s way. That’s why I felt such an ease coming across these paired back images from Pella Hedeby & Marie Ramse who decided to do a totally white Easter.
With unpainted eggs, wrinkly linen cloth and clear glass jars they have created the perfect pared back look softened with light wood details. The wooden crate filled with eggs is a casual nod to Easter without going overboard with colour and I love the clever styling of the reversed canvas on the wall with dark photographs pinned inside.
Celebrating in a simple way is beautiful especially when you have young ones as it lets you focus on being in the moment.
