been trying to enjoy the last weeks in the house, before we are moving into the apartment.
it`s a little strange... i am sort of in between. glad when it`s all over.
am having `vacation`with my kids, one more week to go. we are just at home and are having a good time together. the weather is a little unpredictable, so we haven`t really been to the beach yet.
in the meantime i have been planning how to furnish and decorate the new place. it`s incredible, but always possible to turn a place into something special and personal. fun:D
just showing you some last pictures from the house...
my cousin is coming to visit today, he came all the way from southern germany to norway on his bike.
haven`t seen him in ages, so that is really nice:)
soon i`ll have to start packing..uuuuaaaa!
this time i want to try to plan a little better beforehand;)
don`t we all love moving?!;)
have a great week, if you are working and sweating or laying on the beach:)

inspired by so many other interior bloggers talking about clothes i want to focus on the typical dress code for interior designers this week:) yes!
to put it short: someone described it as "funky yet sophisticated".
i have to admit: many of us work so hard, that they don`t really have the time to be preoccupied with clothes. therefore they/we dress quite boring sometimes.
but: i wanted to identify the typical clothing style, so we leave out the boring days;)
the black blouse seemes inevitable.
many combine jeans with a black blouse or dark sleeveless top.
pattern is also popular in tops.
high heels (in black of course). black dresses or - my suggestion- the black/dark/dark patterned jumpsuit:)
i also see vintage sweaters in bold colours and patterns combined with jeans.
the style is a combination of creativity/individuality and elegance. of course we are influenced by the architects clothing style - black black black- and the product designer style - funky.
actually it is quite an exiting mixture.
bold rings also seem to be popular. for meetings with clients they like to throw on a blazer to either spice up or tone down the rest of the clothes.
i put together collages in case you want the look:
pictures in the collages from http://www.laredoute.com/, http://www.nelly.com/, http://www.ellos.com/
this is my interpretation of the interior architects clothing style:) i want to go shopping now!
have a great week!
