Color love

St PaulEverybody is on the same note at the moment (as so often in Sweden) and we are all loving the color blue, here in the perfect shape of St Pauls Blue by Frama for Jotun (the bedroom wall). This weeks talk is also for a really good reason the work of Sarah WidmanElin Kickén & Evalotta Sundling – very well done ladies!

Behind the scenes, Ikea

props 1 props 2 props 3 props 4 props 5 props 6 props 7Talented photographer Anna Malmberg who I did the crime writer job with for Ikea as well as the Fifty Shades of Grey one – also shot some behind the scenes during the day. Don´t think I have ever shown behind the scenes pics here on the blog before so thought it could be fun to do so this time. A view of the props that I have picked up before ending up in the final result.

Thanks Anna for sharing!

 

50 Shades of Grey

styling Anna MårseliusSaying hi from a sunny Dubai where I´m spending a week of work (you can follow some of it on Instagram @annagillar). Yesterday was not only Valentine´s Day but also the premiere of the movie 50 Shades of Grey. On that theme I got to do this fun project of creating a bedroom of grey tones together with Ikea Livet  Hemma and photographer Anna Malmberg. Hope you like it x

Studio Ilse, Ikea & Ett Hem

Ikea ilse 1 ikea ilse 2 ikea ilse 3 ikea ilse 4I´ve featured Ilse Crawford and the work of her team Studio Ilse before, but the love I feel for what they do has no limits. Yesterday I was invited to a sneak peek of Studio Ilse´s product line ”Sinnerlig Collection” in collaboration with Ikea that will be launched in sometime in August. You might already have seen my absolute favorite – the Daybed – on Instagram but there was absolutely nothing that I did not want to bring with me home. The glass Bottles, the Pendant lamp, the Jug, the Table lamp, the Rug, the Woven basket, the Trestle table….I could go on for all products. Many of which are made in cork and all with the feeling of Ilse´s always warm and welcoming touch with attention to detail and something more than just being a product. The whole thing was presented at hotel Ett Hem (also designed by Studio Ilse) that I have wanted to visit for so long. I´ve heard so much about it and it is for sure even better in real life, I didn´t want leave….ever…

For more pics of Ett Hem I´ve shown it here before. Press pics from yesterday´s sneak peek via Lotta Agaton with thanks.
