Longing for LA

LA 1 LA 2 LA 3 LA 4 LA 5 LA 6LA överstThese pics by amazing photographer Pia Ulin made me want to go back to LA immediately . One of the things I love the most about that city is walking around (yes I know, walking is not very easy there but there are areas like Los Feliz, Santa Monica, Silverlake etc where you can actually walk and not always go by car) looking at houses and all different kinds of architecture, materials, colours and solutions that you so rarely see back home. Most houses have their specific magic and personality to it and I just love that. Looking at the wood in these pictures, the two last pics might not be part of the same house -but how magical would it be if the room with all the windows was the room facing a hidden backyard?

Days in the sun

france 1 france 2 france 3 france 4It has really been an amazing first week of holiday with the sun finally joining us and now we are about to (hopefully) get even more of that going to France for 3 weeks. Can´t wait to see if the house we have rented is as good as we are hoping it to be (sneak peak here), but no matter what the thing I´m most looking forward too is just spending time with the family and friends. I will bring the laptop so that I´ll be able to blog if I can´t resist, but if you don´t see me here of course you are welcome to join me on Instagram @annagillar . Enjoy the summer everyone! And thank you so much for being here & a warm welcome to all the new followers, really excited so many of you have found your way over here!

Ps. Burglars, this was not an invitation. Our house is like Fort Knox and we have friends watching so no attention from your end needed. Thank you. Ds.
