Hi from LA!

Hope you all are having a great start to 2017. Things have been a bit slow on the blog due to holiday in Los Angeles but I´ll make sure to check in here and there anyway. Here are some postcards of the days that have passed. Happy New Year everybody!

1.Pokémon break on Santa Monica pier. We have heard that this spot would be great for Pokémon hunt and the success was total. 2. Waking up to this view every day is just incredible. Need to pinch my arm constantly. 3. Our first lunch in summer heat at favorite Shutters on The Beach. 4. Butcher´s Daughter in Venice, very nice spot. 5. Christmas with friends in Los Feliz. 6. One one side the ocean and the other mountains tops covered in snow. Opposites attract 7. Bike ride along the coast. Love it. 8. Highlights of 2016 #bestnine. 9. Low tide walk in Malibu, Paradise Cove

bitsI´m decorating office spaces whenever I can find the time  and this space was inspirational too me. Obviously the architecture in itself is very rare, especially here in Stockholm, but you can always take bits and pieces and translate it into wherever you are. And in this case, maybe add some colour.

November: On my mind

Yes I know, 8 days of December have already passed by but didn´t want to miss out on a list for November so here we go:

travel novTravel: This magical camp is not where I´m spending my time at the moment but I am in South Africa (in Cape Town) for a week of work and am super excited as I´ve never been here before. The image is from Singita Lebombo in South Africa, at the border with Mozambique. I would love to travel Africa more and really enjoyed Condé Nasts guide to the best safari lodges and camps. Photo by Adrian Leuw.

shoes novemberShoes: I don´t know if it´s being closer to a more exotic animal life but I just bought these shoes and love them!! Can pick up any outfit and any day.

Flower: I used to not like Amaryllis at all but that has changed over the past years and now I love sprinkling them all over our home counting down the days before Christmas.

outfit novOutfit: All of a sudden I had to think about putting this pale piece of body in summer clothes again and I just missed a similar dress as they ran out of it. Such a shame as that would have been the perfect work outfit for me.

outdoor space nov

Outdoor space: I unfortunately  can´t show you pics of the amazing location we are shooting at but like in this image it has this incredible sense of no walls between indoor and outdoors, topped with amazing views over Cape Town and the ocean. The advantage of living in a climate warmer than ours.

Office: In the current issue of Residence Magazine the home of Fashion editor Daniel Lindström is featured. I had the pleasure of styling that job and fell in love with his home office space. I love books and what they add to an interior and this was certainly no exception. Would love to sit there reading and writing.

words novWords: Those words have been in my head for some weeks as I´m struggling so hard with fear of flying and leaving the kids back home. But I´ve made the decision not to let my fears limit my life and here I am. Super happy about this experience of work yet anxious of getting on a plane in a few hours again. Some day I´m hoping to reach a better balance where fear is no longer an issue.

food novFood: As much as I enjoy a slice of summer right now I can´t wait to get back to my family for some traditional pre-Christmas celebrations before heading of to some more adventures.

book novBook: This must be the most blog mentioned book of the month and I´m no different. Definitely on my wishlist.

gift novSustainable pick: It´s Christmas soon and with that comes Christmas gifts. We are trying to clean out all of the toys, clothes and books that the kids are not using any more to pass that forward to someone who will treasure them more.  Most things still look brand new and deserves more rounds of fun. And re-gifting, I think that is great! Old gifts that where not right for you, pass it forward instead of only buying new stuff.

music novMusic: I´m having some difficulties with this category this month as I´m currently sitting in the lobby of the hotel while they are vacuuming the floors and are playing crazy high speed lounge jazz. Not much of inspiration to say the least. Christmas music old style has been the only thing I´ve been listening to for the last month as I have really been in a Christmas mood but this cutie from People People was just added to my wishlist when seeing it over at Hanna Wessman.
