Artilleriet The Kitchen

artilleriet_the_kitchen 1 artilleriet_the_kitchen 2 artilleriet_the_kitchen 3 artilleriet_the_kitchen 4One of the reasons I love going to Gothenburg (in addition to seeing all family on my husband´s side) – is visiting the very inspiring interior store Artilleriet. Today they opened Artilleriet The Kitchen & from seeing these pictures taken by Johanna Bradford of Lovely Life I can´t wait to go there too. Located very close to the mothership store on Magasinsgatan 19.

Commodity

commodity 1Skärmavbild 2015-03-26 kl. 10.39.55Like Em I´m in love with fragrances and scents; perfumes, candles & room sprays you name it. As I´m also addicted to Swedish fragrance house Byredo it´s not very surprising that I really like the packaging of the brand Commodity too. Too similar….? Not even gonna go there but the idea they have where if you are unsure of what scent you want – they send a kit of 10 testers for you to try at home and once you have decided you can order the bigger size. Your own scent lab before choosing instead of standing stressed in the store with to many scents going on, the perfect idea.

Sheer white curtains

sheer 1sheer 2 sheer 3 sheer 4 sheer 5On my mind right now….sheer white curtains. We are currently in the planning phase of making some changes in our basement. One part of the big room will be transformed into an office and the other as a guest room and space for the kids to watch TV and play games. All divided with a white sheer curtain to make two rooms in one but without taking any light or feeling of space. Selling some furniture and am on auction sites all the time to find the perfect pieces. Very excited.

Casual Friday

fri 1 fri 2 fri 3 fri 4 fri 5Took the car to our summerhouse last night to get some fresh air and to work without distraction for a day. Comfy clothes, the best view and the only deadline is to have enough done before lunch to enjoy a slow meal in the sun. Wish & hope that I can do more of this in the future, it truly is a privilege and a way to get some energy and new inspiration going. Hope you all have a great Friday!

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.

The home office

office atticIf you have followed me for a while you know that I´m constantly searching for an office and still with no satisfying result….But when I saw this image I thought I just might move my home office to the attic from the bedroom (I know, you´re not supposed to work in the bedroom but it has the perfect corner, is quite big and lots of light coming through during the day). Our attic looks just about the same as in this image and in addition has a window that I would then be able to look out from straight ahead. The only problem though…I want to and really long for sitting with other people in a proper office and I´m pretty sure that it will still end up with me sitting at the kitchen table instead of the office that I have set up…

Fresh start

new times 1 new times 2 new times 3As for most people the new year comes with new plans, ideas, hopes and goals. I´m really good at breaking all promises that has to do with taking care of myself much better but I truly hope (and once again believe) that this time it will actually work. Good and healthy food, exercise, balance between work and family time and the ambition of growing both professionally and as a person. Guessing all of these are the most common New Year´s resolutions of all and then we can add more specific goals within all of these things. Still haven´t slept many hours since we got back form LA so the extra time certainly helps with at least having more time to get things going in the house. Before 8 today all Christmas decorations where gone, one not so tasty but super green smoothy in stomach, second washing machine rolling and first work emails sent off. Meanwhile getting two kids to school. But there is so much more left to do & I really hope to get time to visit Formex (Swedish interior fair) that is starting today – so here we go. To 2015 being a very productive year!
