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!

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.

Classics

wishlist November by Anna Marselius

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.
