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.
One of the most fun and actually in a way challenging jobs I´ve ever done is for Make It Last creating several still lives with a sustainable objective. You would probably be surprised to hear how many producers and shops that have no sustainable thinking at all…I really think and hope that all of that is about to change, but still the interior world has got a lot to learn from the fashion industry on the topic.
This still life was released yesterday & if you would like to see what has been previously done you can see that here and here. All product details on www.makeitlast.se and photo by the brilliant Pauline Suzor.

Last year my Autumn mood was darker with blue and dark grey tones. This year I´m longing for beige, brown, different shades of white, chunky knits, sandy touches and rough structures combined with the clean and simple. That´s interior life, always changing and often back to basics after a while of experimenting.
You can see last year´s Autumn mood here (one of them, made many….). All pics for this year´s mood borrowed from the lovely The Gifts of Life with thanks.

….peonies for me at the moment. Different shades of pink and white, I use them for every job I do and never get tired of it. The amazing smell and the beauty from beginning to end. They almost look best when they are close to dying….

My life doesn´t look anything like this at the moment, I´m running around chasing props for different shoots. Fun times and busy times but I would´t mind a little break in that coffee shop sometime soon.
