Hotel Henriette

henri överst henri 1 henri 2 henri 3 henri 4 henri 5 henri 6 henri 7 henri 8 henri 9 henri 10 henri 11As we are leaving for Paris tomorrow I´m constantly asking people to share what to see, where to eat and what to do (it was 17 years ago I lived there so my list is a little bit out of date so to speak). Yesterday an Art Director (thanks Hanna!) I worked with showed me this place, Hotel Henriette,  and I fell hard for all the fun and daring interior details. Like a carnival under one roof. Here are some of the rooms and if you would like to see even more check here. And it´s not at all expensive. I actually posted a picture on Instagram the other day of a yellow room I really liked, not knowing then that it is actually one of the rooms of Hotel Henriette. I guess I was meant to find this place at this point…

Studio Ilse, Ikea & Ett Hem

Ikea ilse 1 ikea ilse 2 ikea ilse 3 ikea ilse 4I´ve featured Ilse Crawford and the work of her team Studio Ilse before, but the love I feel for what they do has no limits. Yesterday I was invited to a sneak peek of Studio Ilse´s product line ”Sinnerlig Collection” in collaboration with Ikea that will be launched in sometime in August. You might already have seen my absolute favorite – the Daybed – on Instagram but there was absolutely nothing that I did not want to bring with me home. The glass Bottles, the Pendant lamp, the Jug, the Table lamp, the Rug, the Woven basket, the Trestle table….I could go on for all products. Many of which are made in cork and all with the feeling of Ilse´s always warm and welcoming touch with attention to detail and something more than just being a product. The whole thing was presented at hotel Ett Hem (also designed by Studio Ilse) that I have wanted to visit for so long. I´ve heard so much about it and it is for sure even better in real life, I didn´t want leave….ever…

For more pics of Ett Hem I´ve shown it here before. Press pics from yesterday´s sneak peek via Lotta Agaton with thanks.

It´s so nice to become a tourist in your own city and this is where I preferably would check in for the night. For more of this place, see here.

Hotel desire

axel 2 axel 1 axel 3 axel 4 axel 5 axel 6 axel 7 axel 8 axel 9Back from three amazing weeks in France (I won´t post more on that right now as you probably might feel overdozed if you follow me on Instagram). While being there I went through an abnormal amount of interior magazines and one thing that caught my eye in Vanity Fair was this amazing penthouse suite of the Greenwich Hotel (owned by Robert De Niro amongst others), designed by Belgian Axel Vervoordt. So inspired by the colors & materials that he uses and would love to stay there sometime even though I´m pretty sure my economy won´t allow it….but one can always dream.
