In addition to being a never ending source of inspiration, stylist & photographer Daniella Witte also has an incredible home. I just love her dining room that she so boldly has painted in black and the outdoor area is just amazing. That white wall surrounding it all gives it a feel of being way far south than Sweden and I would just love to spend mornings, days and evenings on a terrace like that.
Back in the city again after thee lovely weeks in France. Every time I´m on a holiday I get reminded of how much I really appreciate a good view and especially one overlooking water and the horizon. It gives me the sense of endlessness and how our planet is just so beautiful and clean in itself (it´s just us trying to ruin that…) with never ending stories to tell, views to give, experiences and adventures to explore. One day I will live with a view that gives me that kind of peace every day…that´s a dream and my plan.

So many details I like about this house, Toorak2 by Australian Robson Rak Architects & Interior Designers. The layered dining room table, the office with the blue velvet chairs, the leather bench in the hallway, the open doors to the garden from the living room, the surface of the sofa table, the massive stove and much more.
Last hours of work and then of to the summer house to celebrate Midsummer with the family, can´t wait! We have been talking about what two eat for two weeks now and will make all the traditionals plus all the games and other crazy stuff us Swedes are doing on this specific holiday. Here are some of my Midsummer plans:
Lots of good food and a table and setting filled with fresh summer flowers…
Making a strawberry cake that this year will be extra interesting as the kids are picking the filling….
Going almost all in with the romantic theme but am hopefully still safe with black base wearing this…
Swimming in the sea as much as possible after a warming sauna.
Happy Midsummer everybody!

Decorating in a completely new space with no history in the walls to lean back on is both challenging but also very fun as it really takes a lot to make it feel cosy and to show the full potential of what you can actually do in a space like that. It´s a clean start and you have all opportunities to make something starting with colors and going through the whole space with the idea you have created. I´ve had the pleasure of decorating two apartments for JM before (you can see them here and here) and am just about to start my third project. The apartment in these pictures is decorated by Marie Ramse who I have had the pleasure to work with when working for JM. If you only new how many apartments she has decorated and how many similar projects she has got going at the same time, it´s very impressive! And with that task to still find new ideas and a personality to every single project, it´s really so well done and very inspiring. You can see more of Marie´s work here.
I´m going to send off the weekend with another ”holiday ready” inspiration bonanza. I´ve been solo home this weekend as my family is away on a weekend trip so have had plenty of time to among other things surf the web for inspiration and loveliness. Apparently I´m ready for holiday as most of the searching goes to blue skies and water, houses to die for and views to fill all your senses. Two more weeks of work and then, holiday!

The rain is pouring down outside but I don´t mind today as I´m planning on staying in bed for a long time without deadlines and work. How about some holiday dreaming? I just love these images and am pinning like mad.

I haven´t disappeared completely, it´s just super busy at the moment so unfortunately haven´t had that time that I really enjoy so much to update the blog. Like for most people the weeks just before holiday are crazy and there is just not enough time for all the fun. This home has been out there for a while but can´t not show it as it is so lovely and also the home of the owner´s of one of my absolute favorite interior stores, Artilleriet. Inspiration deluxe.
I think I forgot to show you this house when I found it some years ago so here we go: the Parsley Palace situated in a small town called Felanitx in Mallorca. It contains no less than twelve rooms and has a roof terrace, a yoga room and a small garden with pool and fruit trees all over. They have renovated the house but I like that they have kept the charm of it being a bit worn still, maintaining some history. You can see the renovation story here . It seems to be fully booked for the summer, but who would say no to an early September weekend here?
