This is the home of super talented interior designer Louise Liljencrantz. So stylish, beautiful and serene. Perfectly captured by one of my favorite photographers to work with, Erik Lefvander.

May: On my mind

Oh how I love the month of May! Here we go with some goodies on my mind before heading off to June:

glampingTravel: I have to be honest, camping is not really my thing. I´m one of those silly persons who think a bear will eat you up as soon as your eyes are closed but now I´ve found something to look into! Terra Glamping, that would be something! In decorated tents with an incredible view of the ocean just along Highway 1 in California. Yep, goes right on the to do list.

valerieShoes: Really like these suede flats by Valerie & Heelow. Perfect with jeans and a basic top. By a quick look I could´t find them in my size though, hopefully they will restock soon.

peonies new
Flower:
Without doubt – and this will always be my flower choice for as long as the season is right – peonies. Along with lilacs of course but peonies are for the win as they last longer.

outfit mayOutfit: All I want, blue jeans and a striped shirt. Simple as that.

Pic via. 

Screen Shot 2017-05-30 at 22.44.59Bedroom: Hello & yes please, If I´m not going glamping I just might do this instead.

Pic via. H&M Home.

office mayOffice: I don´t remember if it was here on the blog or on Instagram I posted this image the first time but I know I reacted to how many people then was equally taken by it as me. This space…yes. Many great things would come from there, I´m sure of it.

Pic via. 

Screen Shot 2017-05-30 at 23.00.11Words: Nothing is as good as Instagram, blogs and what more. I´ve struggled a bit lately with things not at all going the way I planned but I´m not ready to give up. I know my destination and with a little luck and a lot of continuous hard work I´ll hopefully be on my way.

Pic via. 

food mayFood: The grill is already constantly on and the love for prime veggies has never been bigger than in Springtime.

Pic via. 

movie mayMovie: Not a new one but if you haven´t already seen it, please do. Such a moving story with an amazing cast and photography.

Layered_Recycle_imagebild_1-544x880Sustainable pick: Layered recently launched their Recycle collection described like this ”handwoven rugs made of recycled PET bottles. Melted bottles are used to produce a thread, which in turn is spun into yarn. The resulting handwoven rugs have the same look, texture and softness as traditional wool rugs

Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 09.45.57Music: Jennie Abrahamson released her album Reverseries in January and the one track that has been played over and over again is the so beautiful ”Don´t Talk”.

March: On my mind

Can´t believe how quickly this month has passed by…Only made it through half of my to do -list, both at home at at work. Hopefully April will bring more of  Spring warmth and feelings. But before that, let´s go with the monthly list for March:

travel marchTravel: This month I was asked by my husband to block a weekend in April as he has planned a surprise trip. I´m probably one of the most curios people in the world so I´m trying to get him to reveal where we are going but he is super stubborn about it being a surprise so I will have to wait patiently. In the meantime me and my sister booked a trip for our mother and us as she just turned 70, so Mallorca – see you in September!

Pic via. 
shoes marchShoes: Not only do I long for warmer days with lots of fresh fruit but apparently I have the need for dito on my feet too. These cuties are new in my wardrobe (that I have finally cleaned out and organized, wihooo!!)

Pic via. 

flower marchFlower: My allergy is on a high at the moment so I´ll take that as proof Spring and more colours in nature are to come. Finally! Our magnolia tree just had one or two flowers when we moved in ten years ago but now it´s happily exploding every Spring and I can´t wait to see how many flowers this year will bring.

Pic via. 

outfit marchOutfit: Not only do I crave that bike but that outfit looks just perfect to start of Spring with too.

Pic via. 

bedroom marchBedroom: Wouldn’t mind to meet April in a bedroom like this with open windows and no fuzz.

Pic via. 

office marchOffice: That floor, big windows, Essay table by Cecilie Manz and Series 7 chair by Arne Jacobsen from Fritz Hansen – yes please.

Pic via. Photo by.  

words marchWords: Simple beauty.

food marchFood: How lovely do these look? Found these amazing coconut acai bowls over at  Design Love Fest. Wish all meals could look this pretty.

series marchSeries: No surprise that just the scenery of this serie keeps me hooked but the cast and plot is so good too. Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern and Swedish Alexander Skarsgård who is actually doing a really great job here. If you haven´t already seen it, perfect for this weekend!

TheSustainableSociety-loggaSustainable pick: My friend Maria Soxbo of interior blog Husligheter has always a million exciting projects going on and this one is no exception. Today she together with 11 other bloggers are launching initiative ”The Sustainable Society”. Together these blogs will pick one subject per month to write about within the subject of sustainability. Love it!! Really looking forward to follow, learn more and see different angles of the same theme.

Pic and info via. More info here. 

bloodjungle-39515156--1024x1024Music: Track ”Hands” & ”Air is free” have been recurring tunes in my head since the release in February. This weekend I´ll give the whole album a good listen to see if it all has the same effect.

Pic via and more listening here. 

In my dreams

Dirand 1 dirand 2 dirand 3 dirand 4 dirand 5 jd 6 jd 7 jd 8The obsession for French architect & interior designer Joseph Dirand continues with this amazing apartment at Avenue Montaigne in Paris. The owner told Dirand ”I want you to achieve your dream; that would be my dream”. I can´t think of a better person to give that interior trust to. Absolutely stunning result as always. You can see more of Joseph Dirands work here, here, here & here.

February: On my mind

As many times before I didn´t have time to finish the list for current month before the next one starts but since I´ve had this as a draft for two weeks now I´m still going to call it the list for February instead of March. Here we go:

tokyoTravel: I´ve always wanted to go to Tokyo but still that dream hasn´t come  through. My sister and her husband took a weekend trip there some time ago and I don´t know why I forget that it is actually quite easily done. Something to dream about for the future.

shoes febShoes: How pretty are these green beauties? Would so love to welcome Spring in the perfect emerald green. This kind of shoe seems to be on several minds at the moment, see other versions here and here.

Pic via. 

flower febFlower: Just as I thought our lemon tree had given up completely and had bought a new one, the old one showed me it was too soon to give up on it. I apologize old friend, I will pay close attention and treat you with the care you deserve from now on. Hopefully we will have some more rounds together.

Pic via. 

outfit febOutfit: Not too exciting but still on the hunt for the perfect jeans and I so want to find a pair of 501 in my size with a light washing. A perfect way to say ”hello Spring”.

Screen Shot 2017-03-06 at 08.56.35Outdoor space: I´m so ready to go to the summer house, take the first dip of the year in the ocean, a hot sauna, let the shoulders down and breathe some fresh air but that will unfortunately have to wait a bit longer.

office feb
Office:
I really like this home office with it´s color additions and design classics. It´s actually the home of Kourtney Kardashian, featured in Architectural Digest decorated by interior designer Martyn Laurence Bullard.

Pic via. 

Screen Shot 2017-03-06 at 09.19.25Words: It´s been three crazy weeks and it doesn´t seem like there is a break coming anytime soon. Super grateful for having lots of work of course but I also need to remind myself not to stress too much but to stay focused on the task without a racing heart and a non-sleeping mind. I need to stay calm to be productive at least to enjoy it properly. I don´t like to rush through things without staying in the moment so these words will be my continuous mantra.

Pic via. 

food febFood: When being out on production starting super early and ending late at night, the way of eating tends to suffer a bit. You don´t eat enough and when you finally get the chance to do so you are so excited to see food so anything goes instead of eating smart and healthy. At least that´s the case for me. I only have prep work and no photo shoots this week so hopefully that will result in better choices and more clean eating. Would´t mind trying this Kale detox salad with Pesto to start with. See the full recipe here.

JRvol couv03'.inddBook: In the current issue of Styleby magazine founder Elin Kling has this book of French interior designer Jean Royère on her list and I´m hoping that it will be in my home soon as well. If you are not familiar with his work you can see some here. I ran past a pair of his  Oeuf chair in white faux fur wool in perfect condition the other day and my daughter was eager to have one for her room….great but expensive taste in that 7-year old!

Pic via. 

sus febSustainable pick: This months choice is Ikea´s new matte, anthracite grey kitchen ”Kungsbacka” designed by design studio Form Us With Love. The first kitchen fronts line, entirely made from recycled plastic bottles and reclaimed industrial wood, hurray! Read more about the project here.

My Song LP sleeve.inddMusic: Listening to Sophie Zelmani brings back a lot of memories as that was one of the most played albums (Precious Burden) in my loft while living in Paris back in 97-98 (such a long time ago, gah!!).  Her new one was released March 3rd and this week will definitely have ”My Song” and the other tracks as soundtrack. Fingers crossed it fulfills what I´m hoping for.
