Through Petra Tungården I saw that Casa Cook is opening in Kos as well and surely it won’t be less than the one in Rhodes. Haven´t been to any of them but mentally I´m definitely there while heading to load washing machine no 8.

March: On my mind

Can´t believe how quickly this month has passed by…Only made it through half of my to do -list, both at home at at work. Hopefully April will bring more of  Spring warmth and feelings. But before that, let´s go with the monthly list for March:

travel marchTravel: This month I was asked by my husband to block a weekend in April as he has planned a surprise trip. I´m probably one of the most curios people in the world so I´m trying to get him to reveal where we are going but he is super stubborn about it being a surprise so I will have to wait patiently. In the meantime me and my sister booked a trip for our mother and us as she just turned 70, so Mallorca – see you in September!

shoes marchShoes: Not only do I long for warmer days with lots of fresh fruit but apparently I have the need for dito on my feet too. These cuties are new in my wardrobe (that I have finally cleaned out and organized, wihooo!!)

flower marchFlower: My allergy is on a high at the moment so I´ll take that as proof Spring and more colours in nature are to come. Finally! Our magnolia tree just had one or two flowers when we moved in ten years ago but now it´s happily exploding every Spring and I can´t wait to see how many flowers this year will bring.

outfit marchOutfit: Not only do I crave that bike but that outfit looks just perfect to start of Spring with too.

bedroom marchBedroom: Wouldn’t mind to meet April in a bedroom like this with open windows and no fuzz.

food marchFood: How lovely do these look? Found these amazing coconut acai bowls over at  Design Love Fest. Wish all meals could look this pretty.

series marchSeries: No surprise that just the scenery of this serie keeps me hooked but the cast and plot is so good too. Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern and Swedish Alexander Skarsgård who is actually doing a really great job here. If you haven´t already seen it, perfect for this weekend!

TheSustainableSociety-loggaSustainable pick: My friend Maria Soxbo of interior blog Husligheter has always a million exciting projects going on and this one is no exception. Today she together with 11 other bloggers are launching initiative ”The Sustainable Society”. Together these blogs will pick one subject per month to write about within the subject of sustainability. Love it!! Really looking forward to follow, learn more and see different angles of the same theme.

bloodjungle-39515156--1024x1024Music: Track ”Hands” & ”Air is free” have been recurring tunes in my head since the release in February. This weekend I´ll give the whole album a good listen to see if it all has the same effect.

In my dreams

Dirand 1 dirand 2 dirand 3 dirand 4 dirand 5 jd 6 jd 7 jd 8The obsession for French architect & interior designer Joseph Dirand continues with this amazing apartment at Avenue Montaigne in Paris. The owner told Dirand ”I want you to achieve your dream; that would be my dream”. I can´t think of a better person to give that interior trust to. Absolutely stunning result as always. You can see more of Joseph Dirands work here, here, here & here.

I feel Spring

spring feelings 2spring feelingsspring feelings 3The silence on the blog is due to a work marathon that has been going on for quite some time now. Even though it´s been so much fun in many ways with these great assignments, clients and colleagues, working 12-14 hours a day tends increase the desire for a little bit of sleep. Throughout all of it I´ve had this day as a goal – Thursday 23rd – that will be the day where I slow things down at least for a week and I have to say it feels so good. Even though I have a million things to do in terms of paper work and approx 40 big bags of props to unpack, this feels like holiday in comparison. The sun is shining, the birds are happily singing and I´ll be able to pick up the kids early today. Hello lovely Thursday!

That´s what happens sometimes in this job but it always works out in the end anyway. Thanks so much for having us, Daniel! It was such a pleasure.
