Happiness is.....

....what you make it!
(and discovering a new favorite!)

Ooooh! I've got a new favorite shop!!

With bright and airy images of edgy and modern interior design, with shots of rusticness thrown into a palette of soft pastels in a monochrome world, BODIEandFOU epitomizes Scandinavian interiors ...with a french twist!!...Just the perfect combination!!

Their blog is just beautiful, but also it's worth following their instagram feed!

One of the things I love about BODIEandFOU is that their range and ethos is conducive to creativity...
Karine Kong ,the founder of B&F says: "I aim to create homes, interiors and workspaces with happy vibes. Places that make people feel good, that inspire them to be creative". 
This ethos is evident in all their range, but maybe particularly in the B&F collection of prints!

So a  few weeks ago when Karine challenged people to jazz up the beautiful Bodie and Fou  natural basket in a creative way , for a chance of winning back the cost of the basket + one of their fabulous prints...

....Of course I HAD to do this!!

I thought about using paint to adorn my basket with some geometric shapes, or even some kind of graphic wording....but in the end I considered the baskets beautiful shape, and decided to keep the decoration subtle, letting the shape speak for itself:
I  used embroidery thread and simply stitched a herringbone pattern in shades of mint (to suit my bedroom decor) along the edges of the basket...
I love the way it turned out...and it adds a nice beachy/summery feel to my bedroom!!

Now I've just got to wait and see if I win...

....and if I do: It is hard to choose between the B&F collection of Black and White prints....
But I think maybe the one above...??
Wish me Luck!!

NOTE! This is NOT a sponsored post, but rather a homage to a shop that "speaks" to my sense of interior style!
If you, like me, love Scandinavian will love Bodie and I had to share this with you all!!

Next week I will be back with another(!!) home-makeover reveal!
This time our little hallway has had the "Nostalgiecat" treatment...with a new DIY project!!

Follow me on Instagram for little sneak previews...
