Bringing the summer feeling into the home

Although it has been a bit warmer in Denmark today, the summer is having a slow start, and I am personally longing for warm weather, sun, swimming in the ocean and late evenings in the garden. I love spending time in my garden – moving everyday life outside and enjoying the long days being with family, collecting berries, flowers and vegetables in my own garden. And to top it all, the perfect way to enjoy the homeground food, is to prepare it outside.

For outdoor time, baskets, rattan and glass products are perfect – especially when they are in a quality which makes them essential for outdoor livingI have collected a small selection of products I think is appropriate to create a summer feeling. And with this blog post will try to give myself and you a sense of summer (if you like me are sitting somewhere where the summer is not quite arrived) In that way, we create our own summer mood.

The very cool Baskettwin is perfect for collecting and bringing nature indoor. And the other way around, it is also a fun way to bring toys, blankets and lunch outside. I am definitely a big fan of this great basket. You find Baskettwin here.
At once I saw Baskettable, I fell in love. The basket is made of rushes, and with it’s lightness it reminds me of simpel living and warm days. I like the size and that it comes with two handles. When not using it in the summer garden, it’s a good way to keep track of magazines or your knitting yarn. You find Baskettable here.

Flowers in glass vases
Summer is for me all about flowers and green plants. Exploring the nature, seeing the colors, smelling the flowers and collecting flowers for the summertable. It is getting more and more popular to use glass vases, and a lot of them. Make your own stilllife at the dinnertable, or around the house. It is also very beautiful to place glass vases together with ceramics. It makes a great contrast to your stilllife. You find glass vases and ceramic vases here.

This is a broom which reminds me of travelling in Asia, and therefore a musthave when it comes to creating summer feeling. Everywhere I stayed in Asia, this broom was a tool that often was in use, and so functional it is. Not only that, but when not in use, it is also a decorative object. The broom is made of straw, and is soft and gentle on the floor, yet it is great for sweeping up all the dust. It is definitely on my wishlist. You find Vietbroom here. 
Dressed for the beach
After running around and sweeping the floor or the terrace, a great way to end the daily chores, is to go for a swim at the beach. I have a thing for straw hats. It is so nice when you can feel the summer air through the straws. Wear the hat with a light dress – both of them are an obvious choice for a day at the beach. Pack it together with a healthy lunch box in the practical beachbagzig ( which I also use when I go to the grocery store – It is good for the environment) 
and then I wish you a great day at the beach.
