In my dreams

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.

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.

Country Lodge for sale

Sometimes when I see places like this for sale I start dreaming of buying it and start a new career in the hotel business…50 rooms and an interior that is already a solid base with a perfect view and setting in Sörmland, Sweden. Would´t mind at all floating around in that raft sauna any day of the year.

Premium living

Super talented interior decorator Marie Ramse, who I also work with when working for JM, has really made this apartment into something special. In addition to the interior decoration itself, just have a look at the floors, stones & the elegant choice of colours and details. And that office is just perfect.
