New on the Virtual Newsstand...

It's here, the new rue magazine! Finally!!
I have been craving some new inspiration, and the March/April issue delivers...

I chose this image since I so rarely have any red in my image selections... and this dark red totally does it for me :)!!! I think the layering of the empty frames and mix of textures is interesting, oh, and yes... it's five o'clock somewhere, right?

Check out the feature on Kelie Grosso of Maison Luxe. What a fantastic workspace, loving all the white and pops of color! And those windows... to die for!!


Maison Luxe has a website with great info, portfolio and webshop (here)
as well as a blog (here).

Bathroom delight...

Today I bring you a wonderful & dramatic bathroom, photographed by Shannon McGrath.
As a reader of Northern Light, you must know by now, that I like a good Black & White space, and this penthouse bathroom delivers! Those matte black wood panels in the back are so superior as a design element, and notice how the sinks are echoing the circular design, as well as the bath surround and tile work.
I like the sharp, pointy metal sculpture on the wall, why not hang art in the bathroom?
Tell me what you think??


I was browsing the blog world this morning, and via Dustjacket Attic and a link, I was introduced to Shannon and her amazing portfolio!  The house featured on Dustjacket Attic is A.MA.ZING (I really like courtyard houses), I urge you to take a tour....

Grey with Envy!

Having a grey moment!
Be it silver, platinum or white gold.... I am finding these stackable rings to be just beautiful!!

... and keeping it all natural, makes this ring so interesting! The mother of pearl, the silver beads and the quartz (?) stones in their raw state, super cool ring!!

Do you have a favorite?
Do you stack your rings or keep them single? Silver or gold?

Are you The Everygirl?

It's true, it's live and it's The Everygirl site!
We have been teased for days now, the excitement has been building!
Check out this new site, I am sure it will be The Everygirls go-to source for inspiration and information. Like having a girlfriend in-the-know, you know, someone you can ask all the silly questions you kinda think you probably should know the answers to already, but don't...

Have fun exploring, and let me know what you think... if you remember to come back to the Northern Light Blog :)

Malene Birger By Mail!

... OK, so I totally missed this, don't know how, but I did...

Danish Fashion Designer Malene Birger has designed a stamp! Yes, a stamp...
All of a sudden - well, since July / August 2011 - it has become fashionable sending a letter again!!

And how did I find out about this you ask, well, on my birthday I received a letter from home with a lovely card and a FAN.TAS.TIC birthday gift.... The envelope was white, the writing black, the two different stamps were black, white & silver, and by closer inspection this is what I found!
You just know I went straight to the computer to find out more, right?

Well, it turns out this "little" design job was given to Malene Birger (a seasoned designer) and to Silas Adler (a newcomer), both stamps were launched during Copenhagen Fashion Week. Quite an honor!! As with her art, this stamp has been "drawn freehand, with broad, soft lines and bold, pure graphics."
I love the black bow and the black border!!

Think about the combination of stamps, ink and and color next time you write a letter. Presentation is everything people, even when sending a letter, and not just when it is a wedding invitation!!

It's never too late...

OK, so it's entirely possible that I spent a little too much time on Etsy this past week (!!), but I have found some really pretty things...

I just adore this white & black butterfly poster by Eva Juliet, and I am seriously thinking it would be a great piece to have on the wall in our bedroom. It would be pretty, hung low and just behind my bedside lamp, by my table... What do you think?

The french script reads "It's never too late to be who you want to be!" 
It would be quite nice to wake up to in the morning... :)

Go be what you want to be... today!

Ocean view!

A little while back I found the most amazing ocean photo on Etsy.
I sent the dealer a message on her blog, but I haven't heard back. I have just spent time going through 87 pages of ocean photography on Etsy (and there were many more) in the hopes that I would find the image again, but no luck...

What I did find, were so many beautiful images, it makes it hard to choose just one!
I am sharing with you just a small selection of what I found :)

Have a calm day!

Two in one...

Today I celebrate two in one...

Valentines Day & My Birthday :)

The weather is fantastic (but that's to be expected ;)... ) sunny and blue skies.
I am planning on a really good year, as much more bad stuff happened "last year" than I care to remember!! So, go on, have a really fantastic day everyone!

A little note.

A quick note to all of you who have taken the time to offer hugs and prayers, warm thoughts, phone calls and emails, we truly, truly are grateful!

It has been a really difficult couple of days, but we are doing better. Lucky for us we still have Maple, our other cat, and while we have been sad, he has been there to cuddle with, making the loss of Snow a little easier....
( + I think he is really enjoying all the attention :) )
Maple was with us before Snow came into our lives, and we are so thankful he is still here with us!!

Hope you have a fun week ahead of you.

Thank You card via Etsy.

Our beautiful, cuddly, playful fur ball, Snow, passed away suddenly last night.
We are absolutely heartbroken and sad, there are no words....

Having the blues.

I have had this image in my files for a little while now... it was too spring-y to post in the fall, nothing to do with Christmas, but now that we are into February, it just seems right! - I am imagining a summerhouse on the shore somewhere, long sunny days, wet beach towels, sand on the floor, cozy evenings... Are you with me??

Have a great weekend! - Any plans?

Adore-ing St. Barts

Browsing through the new Adore magazine last night, I was fascinated by this shop St. Barts.
I think I could get lost in there for a while, the store looks like my dream house :)

If you would like to meet the owner and read a little about the store, you can do that here.

... and I just couldn't help myself, had to "throw in" these two little bright guys! Makes you smile, no? I am not entirely sure they would actually make it to my house, but they are cute to look at in the store.

UPDATE 06.04.13 : There is now a new web-shop if you are in the mood for long distance shopping.

A quiet start!

So... it's February already, where does time go??

Figured I would start the month off with a very calming image... to me at least :)

I am loving all the black ceramics, all the different shapes, and the matte black console table! Punches of pink, well, that's right up my alley! With a white backdrop and lots of natural light, this dutch home is super interesting!!

Check it out here and there are even more images here, but don't forget to come back and let me know what you think!?
