LA Life

Touch down LA for Christmas and New Years. It´s always a bit strange finding Christmas spirit among palm trees and summer views but getting these rays of sun and just being able to spend time with family and friends is gold. I´ll up date the blog here and there too, but you are also welcome to join me on Instagram for daily views. Hope you all are having (or at least soon) a nice holiday xx

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

The weekend

The weekend has offered very little of feet up high (as it should be just weeks before Xmas) & in an hour we are leaving for my sister´s house to do a pre-version of the big day as we are not spending the actual day together this year. Cosy and busy at the same time and the kids are of course super excited to get not only one celebration but three in total. Have a great Sunday everyone xx

Classics

wishlist November by Anna Marselius

We have practically stopped giving presents to each other in our family except for to the kids who are not at all into that idea… but since I´m spending a couple of hours in bed with a terrible cold before a big work race this afternoon – I had a little bit of time to dream away. Seems like it always ends up with me wanting classics and often stuff that I´ve dreamed of for a long time but have not afforded or prioritized. Here we go:

1. Cestita, the little sister of Miguel Milá’s famous Cesta lamp, both designed over fifty years ago. 235 Euros, Santa & Cole 2. Big knit love by Natural Wool Knits, 2500 SEK. There are several options of this lovely kind of blanket, if I could knit I would definitely try to make one myself… 3. Bra Val/Good Choice products by Åhléns, table cloths, napkins & kitchen towels in natural colours and ecological cotton. Styling by Lotta Agaton, photo: Mikkel Mortensen 4. Vintage Bertoia Diamond Chair, has been on the list forever. Preferably in all white like this one. Pic by me from Instagram 5. Water pitcher and glass from Granit, 149 SEK. Love the simplicity and design. Perfect next to the bed. Via Riazzoli with thanks 6 & 7. Body & Hand cream from Grown Alchemist. All eco products with environmental awareness and beautiful packaging  8. Paperweight Botanique, 529 SEK, Artilleriet. I´m collecting paperweights and this would make a great addition.
