Longing for LA

LA 1 LA 2 LA 3 LA 4 LA 5 LA 6LA överstThese pics by amazing photographer Pia Ulin made me want to go back to LA immediately . One of the things I love the most about that city is walking around (yes I know, walking is not very easy there but there are areas like Los Feliz, Santa Monica, Silverlake etc where you can actually walk and not always go by car) looking at houses and all different kinds of architecture, materials, colours and solutions that you so rarely see back home. Most houses have their specific magic and personality to it and I just love that. Looking at the wood in these pictures, the two last pics might not be part of the same house -but how magical would it be if the room with all the windows was the room facing a hidden backyard?

All pics by Pia Ulin.

Clean October

October to me means starting fresh. As the days get darker you get more tired and the count for endless colds is just about to start. So from now (started already on Monday but if you would like to join what day is better than the first day of the month?):

Exercise minimum three times/week, no alcohol, no sugar, no shopping, as much clean eating as possible, spend as much time as I possibly can outside and to me probably most importantly – making sure to go to bed earlier. Set your own goals or maybe join mine. Welcome October! xx

Ps. Why I´m writing this is because I´m the worst at keeping longer promises like this, I tend to go all in during the first two weeks and then slowly go back to old habits…But I´m hoping that if I put this down in words with you as witnesses I´ll hopefully feel even more motivated Ds.


Apartment love

Love this apartment in the latest issue of Elle Decoration UK, styled by Saša Antić and photographed by Kristofer Johnsson. So rare to get to see kids rooms in interior magazines today that are not family focused, so was extra excited to get some teenage inspo as my kid´s are getting older and especially my son is asking for some change.

Sweater weather

Just got such a good feeling from these pics found via Elements of Style so had to borrow them straight off. Many thanks for the inspiration, need to go get a chunky sweater on right now!
