Heart of steel
In all honesty I do dearly hope my heart is not made of steel... but I do have to admit being a tiny bit fascinated by steel. Even though I am very much a country girl at heart, I can not help but be drawn to some of the more industrial elements in decor.
I like to think they counterbalance some of the prettiness I like to surround myself with. Last august I bought the Tolix chairs that I am most pleased with. And when I found this steel wagon from House Doctor in my friend Eva´s fab webshop Landcharm I just knew it would be a nice "steely" addition to my home.
Not only does it look good, it is pretty nifty too. I love the industrial look wheels, and I love the fact that it can house some of my ever increasing collection of decorating books. As regular readers of my blog will know, books are one of my weaknesses.
Winter has us in its cold grip at the moment. We have a bit of snow, it is cold and grey. On days like this I enjoy spending time indoors, staying close to the wood burning stove. And browsing through some of my favourite books, which are now even closer to hand.
