If you have followed me for a while you know that I´m constantly searching for an office and still with no satisfying result….But when I saw this image I thought I just might move my home office to the attic from the bedroom (I know, you´re not supposed to work in the bedroom but it has the perfect corner, is quite big and lots of light coming through during the day). Our attic looks just about the same as in this image and in addition has a window that I would then be able to look out from straight ahead. The only problem though…I want to and really long for sitting with other people in a proper office and I´m pretty sure that it will still end up with me sitting at the kitchen table instead of the office that I have set up…

As for most people the new year comes with new plans, ideas, hopes and goals. I´m really good at breaking all promises that has to do with taking care of myself much better but I truly hope (and once again believe) that this time it will actually work. Good and healthy food, exercise, balance between work and family time and the ambition of growing both professionally and as a person. Guessing all of these are the most common New Year´s resolutions of all and then we can add more specific goals within all of these things. Still haven´t slept many hours since we got back form LA so the extra time certainly helps with at least having more time to get things going in the house. Before 8 today all Christmas decorations where gone, one not so tasty but super green smoothy in stomach, second washing machine rolling and first work emails sent off. Meanwhile getting two kids to school. But there is so much more left to do & I really hope to get time to visit Formex (Swedish interior fair) that is starting today – so here we go. To 2015 being a very productive year!

Went to the flea market at Melrose & Fairfax this morning and I just love to stroll around looking at things. Found some really nice stuff and bought 2 prints that I just fell in love with and of course they are both coming back with us to Sweden. You can see both prints and a little Flipagram recap of 2014 on my Instagram.

Another thing that is probably going to last for at least a little bit longer (and I really thought I would have been tired of these by now) – are the Beni Ourain & Boucherouite rugs. Even though these are often expensive they still seem to be part of many Swedish homes. A nice and soft contrast to the often more strict interior.

Hope you all have had a great start to the year! Just now I´m sitting in bed after a good night´s sleep with both my children having a very slow and cozy morning. Them with iPads and me with the computor, probably one moment away from breakfast time.
With the new year there is a lot of fun expectations and wishes of what to come and I also really like looking back at the year that passed and what that year was about and what will probably stay with us for some time still. One of the things that I´m sure we will keep on seeing more of are the neutral colors in different shades and tones. Brown, creme and grey with the allowance of darker wood instead of the often very fair Scandi versions. All accompanied with branches of different seasons. The first example (pic 1-6) of this is perfectly captured by photographer Pia Ulin & stylist Lotta Agaton. And the second one (pic 7-10) by photographer Marcus Lawett & stylist Hans Blomquist. Neutral, natural & simply lovely.
