November: On my mind

Yes I know, 8 days of December have already passed by but didn´t want to miss out on a list for November so here we go:

travel novTravel: This magical camp is not where I´m spending my time at the moment but I am in South Africa (in Cape Town) for a week of work and am super excited as I´ve never been here before. The image is from Singita Lebombo in South Africa, at the border with Mozambique. I would love to travel Africa more and really enjoyed Condé Nasts guide to the best safari lodges and camps. Photo by Adrian Leuw.

shoes novemberShoes: I don´t know if it´s being closer to a more exotic animal life but I just bought these shoes and love them!! Can pick up any outfit and any day.

Flower: I used to not like Amaryllis at all but that has changed over the past years and now I love sprinkling them all over our home counting down the days before Christmas.

outfit novOutfit: All of a sudden I had to think about putting this pale piece of body in summer clothes again and I just missed a similar dress as they ran out of it. Such a shame as that would have been the perfect work outfit for me.

outdoor space nov

Outdoor space: I unfortunately  can´t show you pics of the amazing location we are shooting at but like in this image it has this incredible sense of no walls between indoor and outdoors, topped with amazing views over Cape Town and the ocean. The advantage of living in a climate warmer than ours.

Office: In the current issue of Residence Magazine the home of Fashion editor Daniel Lindström is featured. I had the pleasure of styling that job and fell in love with his home office space. I love books and what they add to an interior and this was certainly no exception. Would love to sit there reading and writing.

words novWords: Those words have been in my head for some weeks as I´m struggling so hard with fear of flying and leaving the kids back home. But I´ve made the decision not to let my fears limit my life and here I am. Super happy about this experience of work yet anxious of getting on a plane in a few hours again. Some day I´m hoping to reach a better balance where fear is no longer an issue.

food novFood: As much as I enjoy a slice of summer right now I can´t wait to get back to my family for some traditional pre-Christmas celebrations before heading of to some more adventures.

book novBook: This must be the most blog mentioned book of the month and I´m no different. Definitely on my wishlist.

Pic via. 

gift novSustainable pick: It´s Christmas soon and with that comes Christmas gifts. We are trying to clean out all of the toys, clothes and books that the kids are not using any more to pass that forward to someone who will treasure them more.  Most things still look brand new and deserves more rounds of fun. And re-gifting, I think that is great! Old gifts that where not right for you, pass it forward instead of only buying new stuff.

music novMusic: I´m having some difficulties with this category this month as I´m currently sitting in the lobby of the hotel while they are vacuuming the floors and are playing crazy high speed lounge jazz. Not much of inspiration to say the least. Christmas music old style has been the only thing I´ve been listening to for the last month as I have really been in a Christmas mood but this cutie from People People was just added to my wishlist when seeing it over at Hanna Wessman.

Dark Edition

I really like the mood of these pictures styled by talented Amanda Rodriguez that where released today for the launch of cooperation between Therese Sennerholt and Melo. Therese is releasing 5 new geometrical prints and Melo a new collection all in black. A really great way for two creatives to meet in a mutual expression. Love it.

To read more about Therese Sennerholt´s collection go here, and for Melo check here. 

October: On my mind

I know we have already entered November so it´s a little bit late but could´t resist starting the weekend with a list for October anyway. Happy weekend everybody!

ett hemTravel: Right now I have absolutely no desire to go abroad but would´t at all mind a staycation here in Stockholm. Just me and my love for at least one night.

burgundy healsShoes: I really want a pair of burgundy heals (not that I wear heals that often, especially not in bed, but still enjoy dreaming about it). Those heals look super thin and will probably cause a fracture but oh how they would make any outfit more fun.

flowers octFlower: Hortensia has been on the list before but I really love this flower and how changing it´s color can add to every season.

Pic via. 

outfit octoberOutfit: Big knits and good hair, yes please.

outdoor octoberOutdoor space: Since travel above offered a bedroom view I´m changing the bedroom category for outdoor space instead. This is the way I want to spend the days of Fall.

Screen Shot 2016-11-04 at 09.59.11Office: Last week I did a photo shoot for Residence Magazine in a home with an amazing home office to be inspired by. I love working for them as it always takes me to amazing places. The issue will be out next month and until then the colours and textures of this space will stay in my mind. It´s an office corner of a bedroom of Mauritzhof Hotel in Münster.

words octoberWords: Hopefully you are too? To dream is also planning, right? No fear.

food octoberFood: I´ve only made something with pumpkin once and that was cooking pumpkin soup when living in Paris 18 years ago so I can´t really say it´s one of my signature ingredients. But yesterday I had the most amazing warm pumpkin, sage & almond dish and now all I want to do is try something similar again. This recipe of Maple roasted pumpkin with chili and feta looked really good, maybe something for the weekend?

Series: Have always had a crush on Sarah Jessica Parker, from Girls Just Wanna Have Fun to classic Sex & The City. So needless to say I was really happy to see her star in the new series ”Divorce” on HBO, so good.

susstainable octSustainable pick: How come all products always empty at the same time? They are not at least by me used in the same way, the bottles are of different sizes and so on but still it seems they follow the same trend. This time I want to find some new products as I have always used the same and found Moonsun over at Make It Last. Good reviews, organic and with high quality ingredients. Please make me glow!

Music: Solange´s album ”A Seat at the Table” was released in September and has been the soundtrack of my work days since then. One of those albums that put you in a good and calm mood.

Perfect Imperfect

pi 1 pi 2 pi 3 pi 4 pi 5 pi 6 pi 7 pi expi 9 pi 10 pi 11”Perfect Imperfect” was on the wishlist for April and the craving increases seeing these pictures from the book and an exhibition previously held in Canberra on the same theme.  The book is created by Sydney based writer and editor Karen McCartney, stylist Glen Proebstel and photographer Sharyn Cairns. Hopefully it will be with me by the weekend.

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. 

Weekend postcards

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.
