exterior // my parents garden (+ pavilion edition)

No, this is not a roof-advertisement. Haha, this house was once called 'The Blue House', because it once was BLUE. & by blue I mean BLUE BLUE.
Blue the way that people would say: "I live close to 'The Blue House" and people would know where to go. I didn't live in the house, when the house were blue, I probably wasn't even born yet, but I just think it's amazing when people go outside of the box!

A little house for the birds made by my handy daddy.

Simple, little, but pretty detail. To small shelfs on the empty white wall. (photo over ^^)

Nice little tree with some colourful flowers surrounding it. How pretty! (photo to the right ->)

These walls, also handcrafted by my creative & very handy dad!

..a view into the garden from the 'back door'. My parents are both very creative and love working in the garden. I think it's just beautiful to watch them doing projects together, that they both really enjoy. Even after 20+ years of marriage. #relationshipgoals

Let me brag a little more about my dad and his handyman skills. He's also a carpenter.. and defiantly one of the creative ones. This pavilion is handmade by my dad and about every piece is handpicked. Some of the pieces are taken from old houses (or hospitals) and others are found. I think my parents are Denmarks answer to Joanna & Chip #FixerUpper. They just haven't gotten a TV-program yet.. hah ;)

The front of the pavilion. & you can probably see me in the window. Hello world!

A little peek inside.. anyone else who love mint-green?

The old wood the garlands are from Herrnhut, Germany - I might post some beautiful shots from that pretty old small-town later on!

I love how they made room for some smaller windows at the top - also works great as a shelf, but still you have the wall you can use for furnitures. 

The beautiful & peaceful view from the good-chair out in the garden. Imagine mornings with birds singing and a warm cup of tea..

& yes, they like stones..

A little deep thought. Sometimes you stand have up & change your perspective in order to go from big jungle to small grass.. #youresodeepicantseeyouanymore #sorrynotsorry

I'm taken the photo from what we call "The round" (defiantly works better in danish! - den runde) But this is where we eat dinner when the weather allows and enjoy the late summersun.. mmh. Lot's of good conversation from this little space. 

The art on the wall is made by my mom in ceramic from when she was young. I love how the creativity flows in the family.

And again.. designed by my mom and build by my dad. The ideas just never stops!

I hope you'll be inspired by this beautiful garden, pretty flowers & a peaceful DIY pavilion.. If you have any questions or comments about this garden, please don't hesitate to contact me. I can also be a message-deliverer to the designers of the garden & pavilion, if needed. :) 

If you are moving to the Vejle-area in Denmark you are in luck! My parents are selling their home incl. the garden-heaven. I'm gonna miss the place, but I'm so happy for my parents and the new adventures laying in front of them. Keep'em in your prayers. They're not only garden-changers, but also world-changers!

Stay tuned I've got some more eyecandy from this house soon! I also posted the livingroom edition right here..

Until then, comment your thoughts or show me your garden-skills.

interior // my parents house (livingroom edition)

Soo, my parents are putting their house up for sale these upcoming months (if you are househunting in the Vejle, Denmark area - pay attention my friends!)

Even though they only lived there for 8-ish years. It's still a little sad-weird, when you're moving away from something you once called home. This house was also the house where both me & my brother move out from. This was where I had my teenage years (oh'em teenage years), this was where I got home to for Christmas.. Even though I moved more than I can count it's still a little weird each time and this time will be my parents first move without kids, so this will never be my real home anymore.. more like 'where-ma-parents-live'-house. Weird. Well well, enough of the nostalgia.. Now onto the interior-part (sing that last part with a high vibrator-voice). This will be my first interior post on the blog, but defiantly not last. I looove beautiful homes. One of my passions is to make every room, place, house, building & space to a place where I (or whoever's gonna live there) feel HOME. My blog is called 'a wildflowers HOMEafter all ;)

So here's a little taste of one of the houses that I once called my home. This is also to honor my creative mom who defiantly has an eye for details & to make a house look beautiful, unique & to feel cozy & like home. So far when guests (specially norwegians, lol) have visited my parents house they always compliment how beautiful, cozy & the danish word 'hyggeligt' it looks + the peaceful atmosphere. I'm proud of my mommy! & the beautiful garden my parents did together! (a garden post is in the making!) They've got green fingers & creative talents.
Lastly.. this is also a memorial & a little nostalgian post. To remember the beautiful interior & cozy home we had together. The last we had together as a family. So whoever moves in there after us.. You. Are. Blessed! 

I would describe my mums style as old french charm with a scandinavian twist & a beautiful eye for the small details.

This little green chair is a simple DIY I made as a 'giftcard' for my parents to one of the green chairs you'll see under. They liked it so much that they displayed it on a shelf right above. 

I'm a lover of this green wall. & green colour. & how my mum has a talent for finding cute things as this shelf on a yard-sale & it just makes this wall so photogenic.

This is the place in the house. This is probably the place my parents sit the most (& me when I visit). The firewood is in the other corner so I guess that plays a big part. But you gotta give it to me.. it's a cooozy corner. & I couldn't stop photographing it. IKEA should pay me for putting out their beautiful chairs on the internet. Hah!

These apples have been there all my life. They remind me of my childhood - & I absolutely love them.

I would say my mum's favorit colour is green, but look at how she somehow manage to put in the pink here and there without looking like a girls bedroom. The beautiful Cinderella-painting, the pillows, the sticks with pink flowers & the orchid in the window. She defiantly has an eye for the details. 

These two small 'indoor windows' or holes are one of the things that really bring charm to this house. 

This is my dad's incredible library.. Or it's not even the half of it - the rest didn't make it to the photo. Not sure if I should say 'hah' or 'obs'. Oh well, and in between some personal treasures. Like my grandpas carpenter-statue-thing. I adore it. Or the giraffe bought in Africa.

A little close up of some small beautiful treasures. Some details just needs more space. & a black'n'white edit.

My mum has a weakness for Israel's national fruit: The Pomegranate. & the beautiful beautiful, colourful & very artistic painting was a gift to my mums 50th birthday. And yeah, she cried.
You can follow the incredible artist on instagram here and check out her website here.

inspiring places // fabrikanterne

In one of the many towns I've lived in Vejle, in southeast of Denmark, is a city who is defently starting to earning it's right to a second glance. Why? Well, one of them is a place I'm gonna highlight a little today. The place is called:  Fabrikanterne.

They are a bunch of creative people and artists pursuing their dreamsI Super friendly & always open for a chat. They gladly tell you about the story behind and give you a little tour into where they make their magic happen. (The woman over is one of the creative souls behind this project)

Long story short, I asked to take some shots and make a blogpost and they clapped in their creative hands and gave me free space to invade their beautiful world. Here's a little taste of what their world looks like through my lens.

Not only do they make art. Their place is ART. I mean.. look at this - it makes my interior-heart happy!

A pillar is not a threat. Put some painting on and voilá!  More art for the world

They've kept some of the old walls from the days where this place used to be a discoteque filt with grafitti and history which makes it original, raw & creative, but still new and stylish with the white-painted walls. Here's a little shot of some of the 'cuter' grafitti art <3

The creative woman behind @patternlike was one of the strong women I talked to. I'm featuring her inspiring story in a blogpost - coming soon - where also more of her art is coming up!

I just love the humor in this place - I mean.. CUT THE CRAP.

I will forever&ever be fascinated by the patience, hours and precision, that has been put in to these beautiful, handcrafted small castles and mini-worlds. I'm forever a fan! If you are hungry for more of the amazing work by this incredible artist Li-Yu, then here's her Instagram so hurry up, GO & follow her already!

& ofc if you are a creative soul you need creative books to read and find inspiration from. I'm a book- & library-FAN so everything book-ish needs to be captured - you have been warned!

More books (I already warned ya) and art - what a lovely combination.

"Did somebody loose their lips?" No, no, no.. this is what I call creativity on a high level. These lips are in every colour you can dream of - & these are CRAYONS. @lucyreadart has used her OWN lips as a model - go follow her for more creative lip-art!

A little shoutout to @bordingaardkeramik for amazing so beautiful ceramic - I would love to have a couple of those on my kitchen table filled with fresh springflowers!

Woah, there is nothing polished, 'perfect' or mainstream about this. This is unique, handcrafted, raw and absolutely incredible beautiful - and just my taste & I'm not even a diamond-girl. So @lundbladgraa you surely did something right! In love with your jewelries!

One of the things that I love about this place is that it changes all the time. New art, new styles, new people, new interior, new decor.. It's a place where there is new life and always something new that catches your eye.

YES, admitted. I like yarn. & I love colours! Especially when they are displayed in RAINBOW!

UNICORNS - 1 more reason to love this place!

YES, this is just INCREDIBLY AMAZING !!! #enoughsaid

Here's a mini shoutout to a beautiful woman @kirstinefalk (<- follow her instagram for more pretty art) I love how she draw simple and a childlike lines in the most beautiful way. I'm a fan!

"TAK FOR IDAG" - meaning "thank you for today" in danish.

& last but not least - Again, the humor in this place! I can't even. AHAHAHA! I need my iPhone-emojis now. Imagine the crying-laughing-smiley ;)

 

There are many many more artists to discover and admire in this place - obviously. So sorry for you guys that I missed - maybe next time! But most of the art and the artist can be found on their heir homepage & their Instagram - all of their work are truly amazing and no doubt about the awesome artists - so watch out for more post coming about this place and the people there!

I hope you enjoyed this snaps, got some new people to follow on instagram and last, but not least got a little inspired.

Over & out
