Welcome

welcomewelcome 3Went shopping for a client in amazing vintage store Dusty Deco the other day and fell in love with this huge photo art by Jens Assur. It definitely needs a big wall with it´s range of 2,5 x 3,5 meters and a big wallet to pay for it (75 000 SEK) but oh how I would love to find the perfect space for that piece.

With a view

with a view 1Back in the city again after thee lovely weeks in France. Every time I´m on a holiday I get reminded of how much I really appreciate a good view and especially one overlooking water and the horizon. It gives me the sense of endlessness and how our planet is just so beautiful and clean in itself (it´s just us trying to ruin that…) with never ending stories to tell, views to give, experiences and adventures to explore. One day I will live with a view that gives me that kind of peace every day…that´s a dream and my plan.

The view

The view from the next apartment I´m decorating for JM (from my Instagram). Not bad, not bad at all. #wishlist

 

Chair love

chair love 1 chair love 2 chair love 3 chair love 4I´m currently working on a living room project for a client an I´m almost envious about the selection of chairs that I´m about to present to them, they are all so lovely. One of the chairs is this one – Flynn Armchair – in white velvet with walnut legs. I´m so hoping that this is the one that they are going to go for. Not always easy to choose a white fabric when having kids but the sofa is dark grey so maybe this one can be a piece where no chocolate is aloud….

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.

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.

The collector

vh 1 vh 2 vh 3 vh 4 vh 5 vh 6 vh 7I see so many great vintage finds in these pictures that I would just love to have on my props shelf. The home of photographer and stylist Kara Rosenlund really reflects what she does for a living and years of collecting beautiful things.
