….peonies for me at the moment. Different shades of pink and white, I use them for every job I do and never get tired of it. The amazing smell and the beauty from beginning to end. They almost look best when they are close to dying….
Really happy to be contributing to great initiative Make it Last that I´ve written about here before. Sustainability doesn’t have to compromise anything and this is the first round to hopefully be inspired by. All items used are vintage or made of sustainable and/or recycled and ecological materials. More to come in the future and further info here.
Thanks to always inspiring founders Emma Elwin & Lisa Corneliusson for letting me play! Everything captured beautifully by photographer Pauline Suzor.
Took 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!

Talented photographer Anna Malmberg who I did the crime writer job with for Ikea as well as the Fifty Shades of Grey one – also shot some behind the scenes during the day. Don´t think I have ever shown behind the scenes pics here on the blog before so thought it could be fun to do so this time. A view of the props that I have picked up before ending up in the final result.
Thanks Anna for sharing!
I did a very fun shoot for Ikea a few weeks ago that I didn´t know was out until I today spotted it over at Riazzoli´s (thank you so much for kind words!). The idea was to create a room for a crime writer and I´ve never had the chance to play around with props like on that day. All the pictures where not published but I can tell you there where knives and fake blood amongst other things. Probably good those pics are still in the files…The black cat was not all happy about having to stay in one room with lots of strangers and as I´m (silly I know) very afraid of cats – being in the same room was definitely a challenge. Especially when he started to use his teeth and claws on some of the team members. He did a great job in front of the camera though so despite fear I send extra credits to you Mr. Black.
Saying hi from a sunny Dubai where I´m spending a week of work (you can follow some of it on Instagram @annagillar). Yesterday was not only Valentine´s Day but also the premiere of the movie 50 Shades of Grey. On that theme I got to do this fun project of creating a bedroom of grey tones together with Ikea Livet Hemma and photographer Anna Malmberg. Hope you like it x
Creating mood boards for an up coming bigger job at the moment, no less than 10 should be done by the end of the evening…Luckily that´s one of my favorite parts of this job, the planning and creative side to it. Feel in love with these beauties along the way.
