Looking back

A little recap of the latest weeks of my Instagram. Seems to be a lot about food, flowers, curtains in the wind and rooms and views to die for. No rocket science, just pure and sweet shallowness.

1.) from yesterday´s shoot for Ikea. Spring theme with lots of goodies and beautiful flowers. 2.) our Valborg dinner where the kids & I picked massive bouquets of white anemonies then placed in small vases on the table. No further decoration needed. 3.) a flashback to the last day of finalizing my project for JM. We struggled a bit with the light in this specific corner when shooting it the day after and this is just a glimpse of an angel that we never had the chance to capture. 4.) Unfortunately don´t have the credits for this amazing picture but it´s not often you find something you haven’t seen before and that makes your heart take an extra beat. Love this one. 5.) I could live on this forever. Starters with hot chili shrimps on some and Skagen on the others. Topped with red and black caviar, some pepper and dill. 6.) Waking up to a sunny morning on the last ski holiday of this season. 7.) Dining room love from an apartment for sale. More pics on the blog here. 8.) a 5 star afternoon at my sister´s with the kids catching some sun before tacos and ice cream bonanza. 9.) Color explosion at Makalösa Blommor.

April: On my mind

Once again time for the monthly list, here we go!

travel april 2

Travel: Just a few weekends away from going on a weekend trip to Berlin. My husband is running the Big 25 and I will happily be cheering from a restaurant table next to the course with a glass of wine. I´ve been in Berlin once before but was a bit unlucky with the weather as it was freezing cold and very windy so this time around I´m hoping for Spring feelings and new findings. Have any Berlin favorites? Would love to hear about it in the comments. I definitely want to visit this rooftop bar as I´ve never seen Berlin from above before.

shoes april

Shoes: Since the weekend trip for sure will offer some restaurant visits I´m looking forward to leaving my sneakers for a while and step into some proper heels. Something like this would do it.

Blommor april

Flower: This is exactly what I´m looking forward to at the moment. Just enjoying Spring and all the flowers and greens that comes with it.

fashion april 2

Outfit: The perfect sand colored coat and a pair of white pants like these ones are on the wishlist. I haven´t worn white pants in years even though I love it on others. Hopefully this year will be the return of this piece of classic look even for me.

april sovrum

Bedroom: Not that far from last month´s bedroom but this is still what I want. Open doors or windows with fresh air, lots of light and no fuzz.

office april

Office: I´m just finishing decorating our new home office and one of the things (in addition to finally having two desks facing each other, so cosy!!) I´m really happy about is that we picked a rug soft and high piled like this one to warm bare feet.

words april

Words: Trying to remind myself that all bumps on the road are to learn from no matter how tough they might be when you are in that moment. Not always easy but still true.

food april 2

Food: Well ok….more like drinks. It´s time for rosé and pink bubbles and I´m for sure happy to join. This weekend we will be celebrating Valborg in Sweden and putting the religious old reason for celebrating this day aside – now days it´s more about celebrating Spring and welcoming the light by putting on this massive fire. Out with the old, in with the new kind of thing. I´ll be with friends and family hopefully with lots of sun, good food and pink drinks on the terrace.

Sustainable pick: Have been looking for a big beach bag that can fit all the things you want to bring to the beach. Inspired by Susan Hoff making these ones with sustainability in mind using retired sails and vintage horse tacks.

music april

Music: Like classical music? Or even if you don’t, do not miss Icelandic super talent Ólafur Arnalds. A modern version of classical with lots of emotion and so beautiful it gives me goosebumps every single time. Start by listening to his most popular songs on Spotify and work you way down.

The collector

vh 1 vh 2 vh 3 vh 4 vh 5 vh 6 vh 7I see so many great vintage finds in these pictures that I would just love to have on my props shelf. The home of photographer and stylist Kara Rosenlund really reflects what she does for a living and years of collecting beautiful things.
