If I had a pool

pool daniella 1 pool Daniella 2 pool Daniella 3I´ve featured the pool and terrace space of interior stylist and photographer Daniella Witte before but as she recently posted these pics I have to show you some more again. It might not be the perfect climate for a pool in Sweden and since we have very little space between the houses in our neighbourhood I´m sure our neighbours would be surprised if we started building a pool just outside their kitchen window  – but! if I where to have a pool, this space would without doubt serve as my moodboard.

February: On my mind

As many times before I didn´t have time to finish the list for current month before the next one starts but since I´ve had this as a draft for two weeks now I´m still going to call it the list for February instead of March. Here we go:

tokyoTravel: I´ve always wanted to go to Tokyo but still that dream hasn´t come  through. My sister and her husband took a weekend trip there some time ago and I don´t know why I forget that it is actually quite easily done. Something to dream about for the future.

shoes febShoes: How pretty are these green beauties? Would so love to welcome Spring in the perfect emerald green. This kind of shoe seems to be on several minds at the moment, see other versions here and here.

flower febFlower: Just as I thought our lemon tree had given up completely and had bought a new one, the old one showed me it was too soon to give up on it. I apologize old friend, I will pay close attention and treat you with the care you deserve from now on. Hopefully we will have some more rounds together.

outfit febOutfit: Not too exciting but still on the hunt for the perfect jeans and I so want to find a pair of 501 in my size with a light washing. A perfect way to say ”hello Spring”.

office feb
Office:
I really like this home office with it´s color additions and design classics. It´s actually the home of Kourtney Kardashian, featured in Architectural Digest decorated by interior designer Martyn Laurence Bullard.

Screen Shot 2017-03-06 at 09.19.25Words: It´s been three crazy weeks and it doesn´t seem like there is a break coming anytime soon. Super grateful for having lots of work of course but I also need to remind myself not to stress too much but to stay focused on the task without a racing heart and a non-sleeping mind. I need to stay calm to be productive at least to enjoy it properly. I don´t like to rush through things without staying in the moment so these words will be my continuous mantra.

food febFood: When being out on production starting super early and ending late at night, the way of eating tends to suffer a bit. You don´t eat enough and when you finally get the chance to do so you are so excited to see food so anything goes instead of eating smart and healthy. At least that´s the case for me. I only have prep work and no photo shoots this week so hopefully that will result in better choices and more clean eating. Would´t mind trying this Kale detox salad with Pesto to start with. See the full recipe here.

JRvol couv03'.inddBook: In the current issue of Styleby magazine founder Elin Kling has this book of French interior designer Jean Royère on her list and I´m hoping that it will be in my home soon as well. If you are not familiar with his work you can see some here. I ran past a pair of his  Oeuf chair in white faux fur wool in perfect condition the other day and my daughter was eager to have one for her room….great but expensive taste in that 7-year old!

sus febSustainable pick: This months choice is Ikea´s new matte, anthracite grey kitchen ”Kungsbacka” designed by design studio Form Us With Love. The first kitchen fronts line, entirely made from recycled plastic bottles and reclaimed industrial wood, hurray! Read more about the project here.

My Song LP sleeve.inddMusic: Listening to Sophie Zelmani brings back a lot of memories as that was one of the most played albums (Precious Burden) in my loft while living in Paris back in 97-98 (such a long time ago, gah!!).  Her new one was released March 3rd and this week will definitely have ”My Song” and the other tracks as soundtrack. Fingers crossed it fulfills what I´m hoping for.

That´s what happens sometimes in this job but it always works out in the end anyway. Thanks so much for having us, Daniel! It was such a pleasure.

Happy Valentine´s!

valentines

Happy Valentine´s Day dear friends and readers! I´m not much for putting a specific day on showing love (we should do that all the time right?) – but let it serve as a reminder to actually do so. Just like New Years could be a reminder of evaluating your life and what might need to change.

I really want to thank you all for being here with me. Makes it all so much more fun. Also, I want to thank you big time for your generous and heartwarming support with votes for the Interior Blogger of the Year Award on Elle Decoration Swedish Design Awards that took place last Monday. I did not win but am equally happy anyway for being nominated by you guys – thank you so much for that!! And big congrats to the winner – Jannice of Add Simplicity! So go ahead and spread some love today! And hopefully get some in return xx

The Row

the row 1 the row 2 the row 3 the row 4 the row 5 the row 6 the row 7 the row 8 the row 9 the row 10When in LA my friend Jennie took me the space of clothing line The Row. We where informed there was a strict no to taking photos (I don´t really know why…) but just found these pics by Rich Stapleton for Cereal Magazine and thought I wanted to show you this cool space if you haven´t been. Very minimalistic and with details and objects that invites multiple heart shaped eye emojis. Topped with a pool in a courtyard in the center of the store. Of course we did not take any pictures as they said no, but just in case the camera might have accidentally slipped out of the pocket you can see it here.

Nostalgia

nostalgiaWoke up to an email from my mother saying our old apartment is for sale right now and I was a bit surprised how much nostalgia it caused. We only lived there for three years but did renovate the whole thing and really enjoyed our time there. We moved from there ten years ago just two weeks from having our first child so I guess that adds to it as well. Anyway – you can see more here. If you are planning on moving, I can definitely recommend this place. 

Stockholm 2017

ikea 1 ikea 2 ikea 3Ikea are releasing news in an incredible speed and yesterday was the launch of the new Stockholm 2017 series that will be available from April. I unfortunately didn´t make it to the presentation but really like the images released for the occasion and this beautiful piece designed by Nike Karlsson. Very inspirational. See more pics of the collection here and read this before going ahead with yet another buy. Just the pure inspiration is often enough.
