Some Friday links

nina campionino 1fullviktigSome things from this week…

  1. This made me laugh out loud. So well written and oh how I can relate. Nina Campioni´s  top 10 of the most annoying things. You can read it here.
  2. An honest and well needed post from one of my favorites, Emma Elwin. We should never be ashamed of our bodies and hopefully with something like this we can be reminded that there is beauty in everything. You can read about it here. 
  3. Today Ikea´s collection Fullviktig is released and I can really recommend the ceramics of this serie. I had the pleasure of doing some short films and stills for this collection a few weeks ago (not the picture above but I think you can see it on the big screens outside of the warehouses and other places). The colours and shapes are so pretty and the story behind it inspirational. Read more about it and see the full collection here.

The art of presentation

hike 1 hike 2 hike 3 hike 4It´s so rare but becoming more and more important to present the products you are selling in a personal yet clean and clear way. There are examples in Sweden too but today I have to mention Japanese Hike as the perfect front runner. Not only do the pieces look great in their way of presenting them but you can also properly see details and the fine linings that are often missed. Love it.

When looking back I realize it is so much about cooking and food when having time of and luckily we have friends and family who share the same interest so with a few kilos gained we are now back with more freckles and hopefully ready for a Fall full of work and new projects. Looking back at this I feel super thankful for the life we have and really do appreciate every single minute of it.

June: On my mind

It´s been a hectic and so lovely month with lots of fun at both work and at home. I can´t say that I´m sad to say good bye to this busy month though because now we are heading of for July and the holiday that comes with it. But before that, let´s summarize the list for June!

travel june

Travel: I´ve always wanted to go to the Amalfi coast but still haven´t gotten there. Definitely something to look into for next year´s summer holiday.

shoes juneShoes: From now on it´s bye bye sneakers and hidden feet, welcome era of flip flops and sandals!

flower june

Flower: I love the scent of Jasmine and luckily we have a big one in our garden. The rain did some major damage to it but there are still a few days left of one of the best smells.

outfit juneOutfit: Every summer I´m chasing the perfect kaftan to live in during the holiday and I even though I´ve searched like crazy I haven´t found the right one yet. Bought a black one but am hoping to at least for summer use a little bit of color for a change. Maybe not orange but with some summer lovelyness to it you know?

Outdoor space:
Leaving the traditional bedroom category for an outdoor space this month and what could be more suitable than a garden setting with a view, a space in the shadow to have breakfast, lunch and dinner. And yes – if you find my inspiration mostly comes from warmer places that is true. I adore what we have here in Sweden and that is where my heart is but inspiration often comes from what you don´t see and experience all the time so here it is. In just a few weeks this is where I´ll spend most of my meals.

office june

Office: The kids actually had their last day at school and daycare yesterday so Summer break is on! It feels absolutely lovely and we are now at the country house but to be honest even though I hoped my holiday would start now I´m not quite done yet so there will be some hours…days of work still. But with a proper view and family around me I don’t´feel sorry for myself but will enjoy the inspiration this environment gives.

words juneWords: So true I think. It´s probably because we experience the changes of seasons that we appreciate summer so much and it feels as if every summer has it´s story. This one has already started and I´m excited to learn the rest.

food june

Food: Love googling beautiful and delicious food and recipes and I think when ordering a salad you far too often get something not very interesting. This one is so simple yet so pretty to look at and probably a perfect side or lunch. Will definitely try it soon. For more inspo on salads – check here.

Pic via. series june

Series: I watched all of the episodes of HBO series ”Casual” in just a few days last week. I wasn´t convinced until after a few ones but then I started really liking it. Great casting and with a lots of personality.

sustainable pick juneSustainable pick: One of summer´s best treats, flea market shopping! The market suddenly explodes and there are flea markets and car sales everywhere. The perfect way of reusing and making special finds. Look at my friend Maria´s guide here.

Music JuneMusic: Singer Adam Olenius of Swedish band Shout Out Louds has just released a solo EP called ”Looking forward to the new me”. Sounds very promising and ”News are saying” is probably the perfect car track for this summer going through the roads with the summer green around you.
