The Row

the row 1 the row 2 the row 3 the row 4 the row 5 the row 6 the row 7 the row 8 the row 9 the row 10When in LA my friend Jennie took me the space of clothing line The Row. We where informed there was a strict no to taking photos (I don´t really know why…) but just found these pics by Rich Stapleton for Cereal Magazine and thought I wanted to show you this cool space if you haven´t been. Very minimalistic and with details and objects that invites multiple heart shaped eye emojis. Topped with a pool in a courtyard in the center of the store. Of course we did not take any pictures as they said no, but just in case the camera might have accidentally slipped out of the pocket you can see it here.

Nostalgia

nostalgiaWoke up to an email from my mother saying our old apartment is for sale right now and I was a bit surprised how much nostalgia it caused. We only lived there for three years but did renovate the whole thing and really enjoyed our time there. We moved from there ten years ago just two weeks from having our first child so I guess that adds to it as well. Anyway – you can see more here. If you are planning on moving, I can definitely recommend this place. 

Country Lodge for sale

Sometimes when I see places like this for sale I start dreaming of buying it and start a new career in the hotel business…50 rooms and an interior that is already a solid base with a perfect view and setting in Sörmland, Sweden. Would´t mind at all floating around in that raft sauna any day of the year.

Memories through props

styling anna mårselius 1 styling anna mårselius 2 styling anna mårselius 3 styling anna mårselius 4I had planned to get a very unusual and glamorous start to this week by attending some of the fashion shows of Stockholm Fashion Week but ended up staying home with a sick small one instead. Tucked her in and started the race of organizing and unpacking all props that are always on the move from and back to their shelves. Most of the time I don´t even have time to unpack before I need them again but a goal for 2017 is to get things more sorted for an easy overview. Many of the props have been around for a long time and bring back so many memories with them. Several things in these images are still with me and have been used for so many jobs over the years. I have trouble parting from things that I love and tend to keep them longer than planned but as long as there is space on the shelves…This job was actually one of the very first I ever did. A photo shoot here at home together with photographer Kristofer Johnsson who I so enjoy to work with. I had made that 1×1 m plate the day before putting white tiles on one side and leaving the other in it´s natural costume of wood.

Just a few notes of some of the things in the images:

In pic 1: the gold mayfly necklace is a gift from my sister, the green vase I got from Lotta (Agaton) when cleaning out her props shelves one day on my internship with her 6 years ago, the Hermès soap I got from a close friend, that big pair of scissors looks even bigger in real life and I had rented it especially for this shoot.

In pic 2: The grey bowl has been with me for many years and we bought it in NY. We actually bought two, one for us and one for my parents. One of those gifts that are not really fit to go in your suitcase but luckily we made it. Several of the small glass bottles and the grey little box, again gifts from Lotta´s props shelves. The pink beauty I can´t remember the name of but I love how it looks like a small Japanese cherry tree in blossom.

In pic 3: That basket from Granit has been with me for so many jobs, a loyal friend. The three black stones I got from our friend´s daughter who had collected them for me as she knew what my job is about and was hoping to contribute. So sweet and thoughtful. The Maison Margiela Russian Dolls I had wished for for a really long time when receiving them as a gift and love them equally much today.

In pic 4: This one I actually made with the hope to send it to Granit so that they could see my work and hopefully would want to work with me. Back then I did many jobs without having an assignment but did pictures with photographers hoping for someone to want to pick up on them in the end. Funnily enough Granit sent a reply saying they had just done images very similar to this so that was that. But I had to start trying somewhere, right? The first two images where later published in Elle Decoration DK. So all turned out good in the end and all of these memories I keep close to my heart still today.

Premium living

premium 1 premium 2 premium 3 premium 4 premium 5premium 7 premium 8What a difference it makes when having the possibility to decorate a whole concept with all materials for kitchen, bathrooms, floors and colour scheme instead of starting with something someone else has decided for you. Super talented interior decorator Marie Ramse, who I also work with when working for JM, has really made this apartment into something special. In addition to the interior decoration itself, just have a look at the floors, stones & the elegant choice of colours and details. And that office is just perfect.
