Had the pleasure of meeting the very sweet and amazingly talented fashion stylist, Emma Elwin today. Emma and Lisa Corneliusson on October 1st launched the digital magazine Make it last with the mission to highlight long lasting fashion and beauty. Lots of inspiration and with the aim to put sustainability permanently on the map. To see more of this great initiative, click here.
Found the lovely Tumblr feed of Silver-Blonde this morning and wanted to share some pics with you. I think it is important to try to get all photo credits right when making a post but it is not always easy as pictures travel very fast and the origin of the pic often get lost on the way. Some photographers & stylists do not appreciate their work being spread and I completely respect and appreciate that so if you would see something here on my blog that you don´t want to be featured, please contact me and I will take it off straight away. Or – if I have missed any credits, please fill me in. I purely share what inspires me and take no credits for work (except my own), it is not an attempt to steal but a way of expressing admiration and inspiration. For example I found one of my own pics in the Silver Blonde feed with no credits at all for me as a stylist or Kristofer Johnsson as photographer. Of course I would love for there to be credits in it as it is a good way of marketing our work but I do see how credits can get lost on the way. In the long run, I think it´s a good way to get featured anyhow and as soon as the picture is on my webpage it is a reality that it can spread. With that said, this is a very big discussion. I hope my blog can stay the way it is, a collection of beautiful things that inspire me and hopefully also you, and that when, and if someone do not want to be a part of it, feel free to contact me. Thank you xx
The Silver Blonde feed is also a great example of how pictures from Instagram have really become a true inspiration for people – all of the pics above are from different instagram accounts (except for no 6) .

I´ve noticed that one thing you seem to fancy a lot (and that I will try to get better at showing more of) is kid´s rooms. I really enjoy that too but sometimes it is hard to find inspirational features that are not too cute or so stylish it almost becomes silly. The amazing Milk Magazine is great for inspiration and just in case you haven´t discovered Designmom yet, there is some good stuff there as well (the two pics from there). Go check it out if you like or visit my Pinterest album on the same topic.
One more blog that always inspires with pics from life & home is Seventeen Doors. Today the picture that caught my eye was this one from an apartment that has been sold by Fantastic Frank. So simple and yet with that small detail of the coat moving – it is just perfect.
It´s often hard (unfortunately) to stay completely up dated on what all the fellow bloggers are up to but this morning I had some time to look around. One page that never is disappointing is the Norwegian Cherry Blossom Blog. I really like the tone of it and often feel inspired when reading it. The pics are some borrows that made a nice mood for today to the tunes of this song also discovered by the very same. Thanks for inspiration, Cherry Blossom!
