Saturday’s “Designing with Vintage” with Gail Smith-Peterson
Soft and Cozy
With the holiday bustle everywhere, I hope you can create a place that is cozy to come home to. It’s the perfect time of year to indulge in something soft and fury to sneak a little lounging time. I have created a little space in my home for my family; I can already see we will be drawing straws! Visit us at Second Shout Out ~ we have a lot of soft and cozy options.

Enjoy the beauty of this Holiday Season.

My design tip: Creating a cozy corner to read or take a nap is a special treat.

A wonderful place Second Shout Out Visited and we are recommending to our followers.  Lidingö is an island-suburb just outside of Stockholm in Sweden where the  Långängens Farm sits . It's vast countryside fields and stately red wooden buildings is a great place to stop for lunch after a long walk. Sit in the cozy cottage dating from the 1700s. It has low ceiling, the floors creak and the wind is said to stay a husspöke . It serves delicious, local food and great pastries cooked and baked from scratch. In addition to the restaurant the family organizes runs the farm. During the winter months there is fantastic snowboarding slopes near by and during summer months, you can play golf on the nine-hole course and driving range. There is wonderful hiking through the Viking Countryside. 

Opening hours during winter : Wed -Sun : 11-16 . Address: Långängens Farm , 181 41 Lidingö

So many favorite and nostalgic images of Christmas include pure olde school fun on sleds and sleigh rides. Images that inspire the holidays with vintage beauty and happiness. Keep watch, at second Shout Out we have vintage sleds like these to use outdoors for your holiday decor. Truly a magical sight.

If you dare and have a large enough space why not bring them inside, after all it’s Christmas!

My design tip: Vintage toys, ski’s, sleds and skates curate a playful and nostalgic feeling to holiday decor, have fun with them.

Dedicated to the decoration and Northern Nordic way of life. It is a delight to visit this home dressed for the Christmas holidays in a white environment and subtle fine notes of red and cozy hospitality. Julia, iexplains her 5 principal recommendations for a simple effective decoration in Christmas: to use crowns in doors and windows, the smell of Christmas sweets newly baked, flowers of the season, to take care of the decoration of the kitchen  by creating wonderful cuisines and to fill the house of big hung stars on walls and ceilings.

Enjoy the Season.

Beginning the Holidays with Evergreens

It’s official, we’re off to begin the holidays. This morning I officially began with evergreens. Each year I anticipate the smell of Christmas, it truly inspires me. I came home with wonderful fragrant pine wreaths, over a hundred feet of fresh mixed pine garland for our mantles, headboards and doorways. It’s amazing just having them in my truck made me happy, I really am thrilled with these simple beautiful gifts of nature draped around our home nothing says welcome to the holidays better besides fresh baked cookies!

Use these fabulous Vintage European Grain Sacks from second Shout Out - ships from Italy

Use these wonderful 1940s jars found in italy for place evergreens around your home

 

My design tip: Whatever size or style your space is, evergreens are beautiful on their own.

Enjoy every moment this season has to offer.

In response to a member query, the ski junkies at Indagare put together a comprehensive guide to Europe’s hottest ski resorts.

Long a destination for world-class skiing and striking landscapes, the Alps offer no shortage of thrills. But the mountain range, which spans 750 miles in eight European countries, is understandably overwhelming for the first-time visitor. Indagare’s Alpine Cheat Sheet breaks down the top resort towns so that selecting a destination is as easy as snapping on one’s ski boots.

Second Shout Out took a trip to Lake Como to a small little village called Sala Comacina between Como and Menaggio, in front of Isola Comacina, in a lovely inlet called “Zoca de l’Oli”  for the calm waters that separate the shore of the Island and Sala Comacina and for the such mild weather that allows olive trees to grow here. Sala is also possible to find ancient patrician villas, the most famous is ‘Villa Rachele’, built between the 700 and 800, which also housed Alessandro Manzoni.

Thes best part about Sala Comacina is the church bells, twice a day the bells played Ode To Joy by Beethoven, it so beautiful. Here's a few photos to take you on this Journey.

Ciao Italia
