Pic from Richard Shapiro´s home in Malibu. More pics from this lovely home here.
If 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…

As 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!

Unfortunately I did not have time to make a proper wishlist for last week but if I where to wish for something right now it would be a stay at absolutely beautiful hotel Ett Hem here in Stockholm. It´s so nice to become a tourist in your own city and this is where I preferably would check in for the night. For more of this place, see here.

On the hunt for 2 black vintage Bertoia Diamond Chairs for a client. If you have ideas on where to find that right now – hopefully not too far away from Sweden – that would be greatly appreciated. Please send me an email at email@example.com Thank you! x

We have practically stopped giving presents to each other in our family except for to the kids who are not at all into that idea… but since I´m spending a couple of hours in bed with a terrible cold before a big work race this afternoon – I had a little bit of time to dream away. Seems like it always ends up with me wanting classics and often stuff that I´ve dreamed of for a long time but have not afforded or prioritized. Here we go:
1. Cestita, the little sister of Miguel Milá’s famous Cesta lamp, both designed over fifty years ago. 235 Euros, Santa & Cole 2. Big knit love by Natural Wool Knits, 2500 SEK. There are several options of this lovely kind of blanket, if I could knit I would definitely try to make one myself… 3. Bra Val/Good Choice products by Åhléns, table cloths, napkins & kitchen towels in natural colours and ecological cotton. Styling by Lotta Agaton, photo: Mikkel Mortensen 4. Vintage Bertoia Diamond Chair, has been on the list forever. Preferably in all white like this one. Pic by me from Instagram 5. Water pitcher and glass from Granit, 149 SEK. Love the simplicity and design. Perfect next to the bed. Via Riazzoli with thanks 6 & 7. Body & Hand cream from Grown Alchemist. All eco products with environmental awareness and beautiful packaging 8. Paperweight Botanique, 529 SEK, Artilleriet. I´m collecting paperweights and this would make a great addition.
1. In Detail by the amazing interior stylist Hans Blomquist. Pictures by himself & photographer Debi Treloar. You can order it here 2. Colourful by dream team Lotta Agaton & Pia Ulin. Will be sold in Lotta´s shop & Papercut in Stockholm 3. Move & Work by Malene Birger. You can find it here.
