Flea market

flea 1 flea 2 flea 4Went to the flea market at Melrose & Fairfax this morning and I just love to stroll around looking at things. Found some really nice stuff and bought 2 prints that I just fell in love with and of course they are both coming back with us to Sweden. You can see both prints and a little Flipagram recap of 2014 on my Instagram.

One more round

Even though these are often expensive they still seem to be part of many Swedish homes. A nice and soft contrast to the often more strict interior.

Still going strong

Just now I´m sitting in bed after a good night´s sleep with both my children having a very slow and cozy morning. Them with iPads and me with the computor, probably one moment away from breakfast time.

With the new year there is a lot of fun expectations and wishes of what to come and I also really like looking back at the year that passed and what that year was about and what will probably stay with us for some time still. One of the things that I´m sure we will keep on seeing more of are the neutral colors in different shades and tones. Brown, creme and grey with the allowance of darker wood instead of the often very fair Scandi versions. All accompanied with branches  of different  seasons. The first example (pic 1-6) of this is perfectly captured by photographer Pia Ulin & stylist Lotta Agaton. And the second one (pic 7-10) by photographer Marcus Lawett & stylist Hans Blomquist. Neutral, natural & simply lovely.

 

Inspiration

ji 1 ji 2 ji 3 ji 4 ji 6While just having woken up here in LA most family and friends back in Sweden are getting their New Years outfits on and are probably just now having their first glass of champagne. The time difference is nine hours and I miss them all very much on this specific day. Luckily enough some of our very best friends are here too so in a few hours we are going to get ready for the new year to come. But before that a slow morning with some nice inspiration on the screen. One of the most beautiful homes I´ve seen in some time captured by amazing Jonas Ingerstedt and styled by Sasa Antic for Elle Decoration.

With colour

I just love walking around looking at all the houses, every single one has got something new to take in and admire. Just love it.

This specific house is in Menorca, Spain and  I love the spiciness to it.

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
