Color love

St PaulEverybody is on the same note at the moment (as so often in Sweden) and we are all loving the color blue, here in the perfect shape of St Pauls Blue by Frama for Jotun (the bedroom wall). This weeks talk is also for a really good reason the work of Sarah WidmanElin Kickén & Evalotta Sundling – very well done ladies!

50 Shades of Grey

styling Anna MårseliusSaying 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

Even though these are often expensive they still seem to be part of many Swedish homes. A nice and soft contrast to the often more strict interior.

Still going strong

Just now I´m sitting in bed after a good night´s sleep with both my children having a very slow and cozy morning. Them with iPads and me with the computor, probably one moment away from breakfast time.

With the new year there is a lot of fun expectations and wishes of what to come and I also really like looking back at the year that passed and what that year was about and what will probably stay with us for some time still. One of the things that I´m sure we will keep on seeing more of are the neutral colors in different shades and tones. Brown, creme and grey with the allowance of darker wood instead of the often very fair Scandi versions. All accompanied with branches  of different  seasons. The first example (pic 1-6) of this is perfectly captured by photographer Pia Ulin & stylist Lotta Agaton. And the second one (pic 7-10) by photographer Marcus Lawett & stylist Hans Blomquist. Neutral, natural & simply lovely.

 

Slower days

good night 1holidays mood 5It´s slower here at the moment and hopefully your days are also filled with nothing but recharging and doing what you like the most. If you want more updates you are of course welcome to join me on Instagram but I´ll be here as well every now and then until we get back home and the normal life begins again. Until then I´m keeping it slow while listening to the neighbour playing this old goodie in a perfect Californian way x
