In the current issue of Residence Magazine this piece is out that I did together with photographer Erik Lefvander as my last job before heading on summer holiday. It´s the home of architect Johnny Andersson of Jordens Arkitekter (who also did this amazing space by the way). Some behind the scenes from the shoot – when picking up all the props I the whole time heard that my car engine did not sound as it use to. I barely got out of there with a fully packed car and just as I parked next to our house it died…Luckily after the shoot and not before. And for the image with the jeans hanging on that wall, I really wanted an extra pair and there where none available. So I want to say an extra thanks to photographer Erik that took one for the team taking this pic with no pants on and offering the best laugh of the day!

Things on my mind…

gard ottoWe are currently creating what I would call a dream bedroom for one of my clients. It comes with a walk in closet but not only that, just outside of that space there is another room (in addition to the actual bedroom section with amazing big windows and a soft warm rug to put your feet on when waking up) with an open fire place, perfect wooden floors and space for making it a dressing room deluxe. So currently on my mind, what difference a rug can make (no 1), what a beautiful vintage piece can add to a space (no 2),  how I like this solution but can´t use it for this project but have hopes for the future (no 3) & weather to use a clean and straight ottoman like this one or go a little more detailed and fun (no 4).

October: On my mind

I know we have already entered November so it´s a little bit late but could´t resist starting the weekend with a list for October anyway. Happy weekend everybody!

ett hemTravel: Right now I have absolutely no desire to go abroad but would´t at all mind a staycation here in Stockholm. Just me and my love for at least one night.

burgundy healsShoes: I really want a pair of burgundy heals (not that I wear heals that often, especially not in bed, but still enjoy dreaming about it). Those heals look super thin and will probably cause a fracture but oh how they would make any outfit more fun.

flowers octFlower: Hortensia has been on the list before but I really love this flower and how changing it´s color can add to every season.

outfit octoberOutfit: Big knits and good hair, yes please.

outdoor octoberOutdoor space: Since travel above offered a bedroom view I´m changing the bedroom category for outdoor space instead. This is the way I want to spend the days of Fall.

I love working for them as it always takes me to amazing places. The issue will be out next month and until then the colours and textures of this space will stay in my mind. It´s an office corner of a bedroom of Mauritzhof Hotel in Münster.

words octoberWords: Hopefully you are too? To dream is also planning, right? No fear.

food octoberFood: I´ve only made something with pumpkin once and that was cooking pumpkin soup when living in Paris 18 years ago so I can´t really say it´s one of my signature ingredients. But yesterday I had the most amazing warm pumpkin, sage & almond dish and now all I want to do is try something similar again. This recipe of Maple roasted pumpkin with chili and feta looked really good, maybe something for the weekend?

Series: Have always had a crush on Sarah Jessica Parker, from Girls Just Wanna Have Fun to classic Sex & The City. So needless to say I was really happy to see her star in the new series ”Divorce” on HBO, so good.

susstainable octSustainable pick: How come all products always empty at the same time? They are not at least by me used in the same way, the bottles are of different sizes and so on but still it seems they follow the same trend. This time I want to find some new products as I have always used the same and found Moonsun over at Make It Last. Good reviews, organic and with high quality ingredients. Please make me glow!

Music: Solange´s album ”A Seat at the Table” was released in September and has been the soundtrack of my work days since then. One of those albums that put you in a good and calm mood.

This time an apartment in Lidingö (just outside of Stockholm) with an incredible view. You can´t really see it in the pictures but if you are following me on Instagram this place was heavily featured while working there so then you know. There is a big terrace and it really feels like standing on the water while being there and the sun literally hits it from sunrise to sunset. I´ve seen the most incredible examples of both while setting the interior. I really wanted the result to stay calm and not to take over the whole impression as the view and experience of being in the apartment is so powerful in itself. So a little less colour and things than usual for me and more of a clean slate for the future owner to work from. Many thanks to JM and as always to the very best Marie Ramse and Stefan for being by my side, helping me out and saving me during late nights. And to Kristofer for once again having the patience with – this time – super strong daylight and still making it look so good. I hope you like it. Ax

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.
