April: On my mind

Once again time for the monthly list, here we go!

travel april 2

Travel: Just a few weekends away from going on a weekend trip to Berlin. My husband is running the Big 25 and I will happily be cheering from a restaurant table next to the course with a glass of wine. I´ve been in Berlin once before but was a bit unlucky with the weather as it was freezing cold and very windy so this time around I´m hoping for Spring feelings and new findings. Have any Berlin favorites? Would love to hear about it in the comments. I definitely want to visit this rooftop bar as I´ve never seen Berlin from above before.

shoes april

Shoes: Since the weekend trip for sure will offer some restaurant visits I´m looking forward to leaving my sneakers for a while and step into some proper heels. Something like this would do it.

Blommor april

Flower: This is exactly what I´m looking forward to at the moment. Just enjoying Spring and all the flowers and greens that comes with it.

fashion april 2

Outfit: The perfect sand colored coat and a pair of white pants like these ones are on the wishlist. I haven´t worn white pants in years even though I love it on others. Hopefully this year will be the return of this piece of classic look even for me.

april sovrum

Bedroom: Not that far from last month´s bedroom but this is still what I want. Open doors or windows with fresh air, lots of light and no fuzz.

office april

Office: I´m just finishing decorating our new home office and one of the things (in addition to finally having two desks facing each other, so cosy!!) I´m really happy about is that we picked a rug soft and high piled like this one to warm bare feet.

words april

Words: Trying to remind myself that all bumps on the road are to learn from no matter how tough they might be when you are in that moment. Not always easy but still true.

food april 2

Food: Well ok….more like drinks. It´s time for rosé and pink bubbles and I´m for sure happy to join. This weekend we will be celebrating Valborg in Sweden and putting the religious old reason for celebrating this day aside – now days it´s more about celebrating Spring and welcoming the light by putting on this massive fire. Out with the old, in with the new kind of thing. I´ll be with friends and family hopefully with lots of sun, good food and pink drinks on the terrace.

susan hoff

Sustainable pick: Have been looking for a big beach bag that can fit all the things you want to bring to the beach. Inspired by Susan Hoff making these ones with sustainability in mind using retired sails and vintage horse tacks.

music april

Music: Like classical music? Or even if you don’t, do not miss Icelandic super talent Ólafur Arnalds. A modern version of classical with lots of emotion and so beautiful it gives me goosebumps every single time. Start by listening to his most popular songs on Spotify and work you way down.

Trying to juggle work at the same time and am so thankful for having great people around me and am so looking forward to a fun shoot on Friday. After all of this I would´t mind checking out in a house like this for the weekend.

March: On my mind

Last day of March and time for my second monthly list. Here we go!

Monthly List March travelTravel: When I was about 12 my parents and their friends rented a big boat – pram        style – and went through the canals of France. It was quite an interesting experience going through the locks and seeing France from a different perspective. My favorite memory is jumping of the boat, running to a strawberry field picking your own basket and running back to sit on front of the boat eating those sun warm berries. I probably won´t do the exact trip again but seeing this image made me think back.

Monthly list March shoesShoes: This month is all about comfortable shoes as I (eh…) dropped a very heavy lamp on my foot and it went twice it´s size causing to say the least a little bit of pain. Already have too many Adidas but this pair could easily fit into the collection too. The love for details is constant.

snowdropsFlower: The ”snow drop” without doubt. Finally signs of Sping all over are garden and everywhere else and it´s gives me the greatest feeling every year.

monthly list march outfit

Outfit: Even though Spring is getting there I´m still into big and chunky knits a while longer. But soon, very soon, there will be an end to that too…

Pic via. Monthly list March bedroom Bedroom: I just want it simple at the moment. White crispy sheets, fresh air from an open window and not too many distracting details. And a Paris-view added to that wouldn´t be a problem.

Office: An office with a view. Always preferred comparing to facing a wall in my book. I´m sure most people could come up with great ideas by this desk.

Pic viamonthly list march daydream
Words: I´m slowly dreaming and working on something that is hopefully becoming reality within not too far ahead. Meanwhile I´m telling myself it´s ok to daydream, that is often how the most fun things come to life. Now I just have to pick the brains of some smart friends to make this daydream come through.

Pic via. foodieFood: After having eaten everything but healthy throughout this Spring break all I dream about is a simple and delicious salad.

Pic via. Skärmavbild 2016-03-31 kl. 13.49.47Series: Last month this category was a book but I´ve decided I´ll keep it open and since I unfortunately don´t have time to read as much as I like I still watch a lot of series tucked in bed at night. Hopefully you´ll find something you haven´t seen or we can at least share the love for something here. This time ”Togetherness” on HBO. Described and ”some people have it figured out, these people don´t”. Perfect cast and caption of what life can be like. 

monthly list march sustainable

Sustainable pick: H&M initiates World Recycle Week between 18th-24th of April.  Any textiles in any condition from any brand will be accepted for drop-off for hopefully another ”reclaimed” collection. M.I.A is an ambassador for the project and the official video to highlight it will be released on April 11h.

Via Make It Last with thanks. 

kent
Music:
The song ”Egoist” by Kent. Last tour and last album, end of an era. I know I will be there in December for sure. Unfortunately no video available yet, but their good bye message is a piece of art itself directed by my friend Adam Berg. You can see it here.

You can see other monthly inspiration at Husligheter, Johanna Bradford, Krickelin, Seventeen Doors, Brass & Gold & please feel free to add more.

It´s been so much fun – especially targeting a slightly older group as these apartments are ment for seniors. Therefore I´ve gone for a very classic hopefully sophisticated style with neutrals as a base and with the hope of creating a calm and inviting place to live in. Once again it´s been a real pleasure working with the JM team, so professional and invested in what they do – everyone from marketing to the actual builders on sight. They have all been of great help and have been interested from beginning to end.

It´s also somewhat more of a challenge to create something where everything is completely new -there are now history in the walls to lean back on but you have to find a way to create a story anyhow. I really hope you like the result. Big thanks to JM, Marie & Magdalena for trusting me with this project and once again a special thanks to the one and only Marie Ramse who I could´t have done it without and who is such a star!  Thanks to Stefan for having the energy to make my ideas come through at site and thanks to Elin for assisting me perfectly as always. And finally, thanks to photographer Kristofer Johnsson for great and fun work together as always! Ha ha that was a lot of thank you´s but just had to express some love to some of the lovely people I work with xx
