Thank you so much everyone for sending me to the finals of Interior Blogger of the Year 2017 in the Elle Decoration Swedish Design Awards. Super happy and proud to be among these great 9 interior bloggers in Sweden. I really do put a lot of work and love into this page so it really warms my heart that so many of you appreciate that. It´s definitely a win just to be a finalist. I´m laughing a bit when seeing all the photos of us nominees as my daughter asked me ”why are you the only one looking so angry, Mom?” Ha ha, I will work on that but trust me, I´m really not, just super uncomfortable in front of a camera.

Spent the morning in a super inspiring environment chez Dry Creative Projects consisting of Dry Things, Dry Costume & the base of a bureau with focus on creative direction, art direction och design. In addition to wanting to move in I also want to purchase all of their things. Have a look here to see more or drop by their showroom at Upplandsgatan 36.
Above: Before. Below: Now. Sure did like the above styling more, especially that they have used the marble shelf as a display of pretty things. Do you recognize the top image of this kitchen? Maybe it has been in your Pinterest file just like in mine for a long while now?
The apartment it belongs to is now out for sale again and pic 2-5 holds how it currently looks. The first image – the older one- is also in one of my mood boards for a client where we are re-decorating the whole kitchen. I really like the open space where you can have a big dining table. Also the dark cabinets combined with the marble shelf and tiles, and best of all the little marble shelf that you can use like in pic 1.
You can see the whole apartment here.
Ok, yesterday I wrote I had no desire at all to go abroad right now but when I started to read Ulrika´s of Seventeen Doors guide to Marrakesh this morning I have to admit I changed my mind. But who can blame me when the sky looks like it´s going to fall down on you and the colours of that city are just so powerful and bright. You can read the guide here.

I know we have already entered November so it´s a little bit late but could´t resist starting the weekend with a list for October anyway. Happy weekend everybody!
Shoes: I really want a pair of burgundy heals (not that I wear heals that often, especially not in bed, but still enjoy dreaming about it). Those heals look super thin and will probably cause a fracture but oh how they would make any outfit more fun.
Office: Last week I did a photo shoot for Residence Magazine in a home with an amazing home office to be inspired by. I love working for them as it always takes me to amazing places. The issue will be out next month and until then the colours and textures of this space will stay in my mind. It´s an office corner of a bedroom of Mauritzhof Hotel in Münster.
Food: I´ve only made something with pumpkin once and that was cooking pumpkin soup when living in Paris 18 years ago so I can´t really say it´s one of my signature ingredients. But yesterday I had the most amazing warm pumpkin, sage & almond dish and now all I want to do is try something similar again. This recipe of Maple roasted pumpkin with chili and feta looked really good, maybe something for the weekend?

Series: Have always had a crush on Sarah Jessica Parker, from Girls Just Wanna Have Fun to classic Sex & The City. So needless to say I was really happy to see her star in the new series ”Divorce” on HBO, so good.
Sustainable pick: How come all products always empty at the same time? They are not at least by me used in the same way, the bottles are of different sizes and so on but still it seems they follow the same trend. This time I want to find some new products as I have always used the same and found Moonsun over at Make It Last. Good reviews, organic and with high quality ingredients. Please make me glow!
Music: Solange´s album ”A Seat at the Table” was released in September and has been the soundtrack of my work days since then. One of those albums that put you in a good and calm mood.
”Perfect Imperfect” was on the wishlist for April and the craving increases seeing these pictures from the book and an exhibition previously held in Canberra on the same theme. The book is created by Sydney based writer and editor Karen McCartney, stylist Glen Proebstel and photographer Sharyn Cairns. Hopefully it will be with me by the weekend.

My third project for JM is now up on the Hitta Hem blog and here some pieces of that. This time an apartment in Lidingö (just outside of Stockholm) with an incredible view. You can´t really see it in the pictures but if you are following me on Instagram this place was heavily featured while working there so then you know. There is a big terrace and it really feels like standing on the water while being there and the sun literally hits it from sunrise to sunset. I´ve seen the most incredible examples of both while setting the interior. I really wanted the result to stay calm and not to take over the whole impression as the view and experience of being in the apartment is so powerful in itself. So a little less colour and things than usual for me and more of a clean slate for the future owner to work from. Many thanks to JM and as always to the very best Marie Ramse and Stefan for being by my side, helping me out and saving me during late nights. And to Kristofer for once again having the patience with – this time – super strong daylight and still making it look so good. I hope you like it. Ax
