Paris kind of mood

Paris mood board by Anna Mårselius

I booked a trip to Paris yesterday and I´m so excited about going. It turns out that both my husband and I had planned a surprise trip for each other for both our birthdays and even though the original plan was to go to the Amalfi coast as we haven´t been, we ended up deciding on Paris. I lived there for a year when I was younger, studying French at La Sorbonne. An amazing time but longer ago than I would like to admit so please please if you have any advice on restaurants and nice interior shops I would love to get some (big thanks to Josefin who has already been kind to point me in the right direction).

Believe it or not but I´ve already looked at over a 1000 (!!) apartments…..I know that is probably not normal but I really enjoy it so much… Without doubt we will end up somewhere around Marais. See you in May, Paris!

Still going strong

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.

 

Classics

wishlist November by Anna Marselius

We have practically stopped giving presents to each other in our family except for to the kids who are not at all into that idea… but since I´m spending a couple of hours in bed with a terrible cold before a big work race this afternoon – I had a little bit of time to dream away. Seems like it always ends up with me wanting classics and often stuff that I´ve dreamed of for a long time but have not afforded or prioritized. Here we go:

1. Cestita, the little sister of Miguel Milá’s famous Cesta lamp, both designed over fifty years ago. 235 Euros, Santa & Cole 2. Big knit love by Natural Wool Knits, 2500 SEK. There are several options of this lovely kind of blanket, if I could knit I would definitely try to make one myself… 3. Bra Val/Good Choice products by Åhléns, table cloths, napkins & kitchen towels in natural colours and ecological cotton. Styling by Lotta Agaton, photo: Mikkel Mortensen 4. Vintage Bertoia Diamond Chair, has been on the list forever. Preferably in all white like this one. Pic by me from Instagram 5. Water pitcher and glass from Granit, 149 SEK. Love the simplicity and design. Perfect next to the bed. Via Riazzoli with thanks 6 & 7. Body & Hand cream from Grown Alchemist. All eco products with environmental awareness and beautiful packaging  8. Paperweight Botanique, 529 SEK, Artilleriet. I´m collecting paperweights and this would make a great addition.
