Breathe people, it´s Friday! It´s been a crazy week with no time at all to even visit Formex or any of all the fun interior events that has been going on in Stockholm this week. Thankful for all the fun projects in front of me now but also have to remind myself to breathe in between. It´s not often a straight path, the turns and twists seem to be never-ending sometimes but I guess I would have to switch occupation if I did not see that as a good challenge. One clever decision this week? To cancel something that could be pushed ahead to be able to work alone from home today. And luckily the sun is out too so the lap top is joining me on the terrace today. Expecting to with lobster skin say happy weekend to you all!
The rain is pouring down outside so picking out some of my favorite summer memories from our weeks in France to keep the energy going. When looking back I realize it is so much about cooking and food when having time of and luckily we have friends and family who share the same interest so with a few kilos gained we are now back with more freckles and hopefully ready for a Fall full of work and new projects. Looking back at this I feel super thankful for the life we have and really do appreciate every single minute of it.

Went shopping for a client in amazing vintage store Dusty Deco the other day and fell in love with this huge photo art by Jens Assur. It definitely needs a big wall with it´s range of 2,5 x 3,5 meters and a big wallet to pay for it (75 000 SEK) but oh how I would love to find the perfect space for that piece.

Almost a year ago me and photographer Kristofer Johnsson, got the chance to visit this incredible pool – and guest house designed by Jordens Arkitekter. It was such an amazing Fall morning with just the first leaves falling of the trees and the morning fog perfectly sweeping over the pool. The pool house is also a guest house and inside the main building there is also this incredible spa area with a yoga room facing the garden. Windows from floor to ceiling. The whole pool area is covered in marble and the setting is so calm and elegant. Spa deluxe.
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.

A mix of spaces that made my heart tick a little extra this morning. I mean, just look at the house on pic 1?!

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.
