Love what Marie Ramse has done with this 144m2 house by JM in Fredsborg. The wall colour in the bedroom, all the lightings, the office desk, the dining chairs and the total sense of calmness. Super well done, Marie! Will call you regarding colour code for the bedroom….perfection.
Melimeli bedlinen to be launched soon
You can see the (new old) trend of hotel looking graphic bed linen spreading at the moment. Unfortunately for me I have to admit as I had come a really far way of developing my own thing with just bedlinen on the exact same theme but I just have to realize that I was too slow….and that it would not make any sense going ahead with this project when so many currently are launching similar things. Things you learn from the process, don’t be too cautious and detailed! It might end up being too late when you are done…Anyway – the good thing is that there are many nice looking options out there at the moment. You will soon see one of them in a styling of mine and here are also some other options if you wish to embrace the trend.
Today´s mood, let´s put some sequins on it!

There was a time where I thought it wasn´t satisfying featuring only sketches and not real pictures of houses and projects here on the blog. But as the technique gets better and the limits of imagination is then non existing it´s becoming more and more interesting. This is the Poplar House in Memphis by architect studio Adam Jordan. How about taking a bath in that setting? You can see more of their inspiring spaces here.

The wall colors really set the mood for this entire apartment. Such a calm and exclusive feeling. Perfect inspiration as I´m just heading off to pick wall colors and wall paper for all the rooms of a house I´m currently decorating.

The rain is pouring down outside so what could be more perfect than daydreaming away to this incredible holiday spot. Satellite Island in Tasmania, Australia, certainly is something different from most things, beautifully captured by Luisa Brimble.
In addition to Villa La Madonna being high up on the wish list of places to visit this B&B in Puglia, Italy, looks quite amazing too. Masseria Morose designed by Andrew Trotter. See more pictures of this lovely space and outdoor area here.
Can´t believe it´s already the end of August, this summer really passed by so fast. I didn´t do a monthly list for July as I allowed myself to be offline as much as possible but since I really enjoy both reading others and making my own – here´s what´s on my mind for August!
Travel: Summer days are not quite done for me yet as I´ll be heading to France for a few more days of sun to celebrate my Dad turning 70. This trip has been booked for a really long time and since then many sad things has happened in France (and elsewhere) and also in Nice where we are going. Because if that we have really been going back and forth if it´s really a good thing going but in the end we have all agreed that we can’t let the evil of the world stop us from continuing living our lives. It will definitely be there in the back of our minds from time to time but at least for me I have to face my fears instead of hiding and as I really love traveling and am super scared of flying I already have a conflict there. But It won´t stop me, I will always hope for the best even if it means facing some moments of anxiety…

Shoes: These ones will soon be on my feet. Perfect while still having some color and before it gets too cold.

Outfit: Stockholm Fashion Week is currently going on and I´ve never felt less fashionable as I´m just recovering from a cold and have hardly slept so that my eye bags are in need of a bra. This kind of outfit would be the perfect way of transitioning from whatever I look like now to (maybe) looking forward to a mirror.
Bedroom: Would´t mind going to bed in this blue beauty in one of my on-the-wishlist hotels – Hotel Providence, in Paris.
Office: Luckily I´m excited about most of my projects but there is one thing that I´m currently obsessing a little about. One part of a bigger project is to decorate a home office with a masculine and executive touch. It´s actually been really hard finding good reference pics to show the client of what I want to do and this probably shows that there are not many inspirational masculine offices out there (online that is). I´m sure there are in fact many and would love to see more of this. Researching it now most of the things you find would then feature lots of heavy wood and old not very fun furniture. Always dark colors and often without finess. I won´t put a yellow desk in there but the setting of this room is not far from reality of the room I´m decorating as it is surrounded by a book shelf like this one. So looking forward to get my hands on this.
Food: Fennel. Our friends who we spent a week with in France with this summer are amazing at cooking. Fennel was used in most things and since then I´m addicted to it. Perfect as a side in many different shapes and forms and great on it´s own as a salad too. Chop it, put it in a pan with some olive oil, freshly squeezed orange juice, dill, some salt and pepper. Easy, quick and so delicious. Find more inspiration here.
Series: Finished ”The Night Manager” two weeks ago and the setting of the last episodes alone are a reason to watch.
Sustainable pick: ”The Filippa K Lease” was launched already early 2015 but being such a great project is still deserves mentioning. I´ve never tried it to be honest but definitely will. Instead of buying something you get to rent it for 4 days to a cost of 400 SEK. A perfect way of trying things out so that you know you actually like it before buying it and like so many other times just end up making it just a closet warmer. But hurry up, the SS16 garment are only available until end of September. Read more about the project here.
Music: It seems I have a weakness for men with guitar and longing in their voice, oh well. This song is currently on repeat at home and it is a nice change from Justin Bieber and Marcus and Martinus that the kids are insisting on playing over and over again. In addition to Rivers by Tallest Man on Earth I´m also excited to hear more from band Tiger Lou who soon are releasing a new album after several years of silence. Happy (or melancholy) listening people!
