Hisnande



So, you are wondering what the heck does "hisnande" mean right? Hisnande is Swedish for "breathtaking".



We all have our views on what is breathtaking for each of us individually, but for me, my new found love for pale grays and creams, just screams to me "hisnande". I am in love with everything Swedish, and the way the decor is there eludes such calm and tranquility. Do you agree?



I just painted these lovely chairs the palest gray and adorned the seats in a" hisnande " cream linen fabric.


I could re-decorate my whole living room with these colors. shhhh. don't tell.




These Swedish inspired vintage chairs are now available in shop. I had the hardest time deciding whether to keep them or sell them, but .....

**update** Thank you all for the wonderful prayers and well wishes for baby Wren! She has RSV and pneomonia, and on oxygen and i.v.'s. She will likely be in the


hospital for a week or so. Hopefully.

I'm glad to hear baby Wren is hanging in. I'll continue my good thoughts for her. I LOVE creams and grays - all your stuff is so beautiful - good job!!

The chairs are lovely! I'm going to go check out your shop after this. Poor baby Wren. Our little Boo had RSV when she about one. It was so scary to see her all hooked up on the oxegyn & i.v.'s in the hospital. I hope Wren recovers quickly.

I LOVE swedish style. It's too funny that you posted this because I was just talking to my hubs about how much I'm lovin' creams, grays and dusty gray/blues. Gorgeous!

Layla had rsv when she was about 5 months old and it was terrifying. We were able to treat her at home with a breathing machine and lots of meds. I'm so sorry to hear that baby Wren will have to spend time in the hospital. I'm praying for comfort for her family and a speedy recover for that sweet little one.

Gorgeous! I also love pale colors. So soothing but with 2 little ones it's not super practical for me right now. But someday I hope! In the meantime, I will live vicariously through you.

SO you love my grandfather, because he is from SWEDEN! I love Swedish too and LOVE those chairs. Hope little Wren gets to go home soon. RSV is no fun!

Jeanneoli said...

Keep us updated on Wren and her mommy. How hard on any parents..let alone first timers. Regarding all the white..very lovely, but I spill too much coffee to work in my home:-)
