current essentials

I know that summer is long gone for some, but for me – the ultimate summer child – it’s still very much present. The last two months have been very exciting, fun and a tad stressful. In between enjoying the sun by the pool in the South of France and taking tons of photos of […]

leather weather?

Alley, denim, boots and leather. Shocker. Maybe if I dress like it’s Fall weather it’ll cool down faster. For now I guess I’ll just use the jacket as a prop for now. I’ve been super into these rad, waxed skinnies by Paige Denim. They look like perfectly worn leather and are comfy as F. Been wearing them with basic tees, tanks and oversized crew neck sweatshirts at night. Here I paired them with my favorite Finders Keepers tank, boots and a varsity jacket for some casual-cool vibes. Heres to hoping it cools down fast so I can start actually rockin my favorite outwear pieces.

Minor witchy vibes from this past holiday weekend. I paired a cool, oversized tunic with super cute little chambray, pull on shorts. I’ve also been super obsessed with this amazing Lack of Color label hat, and honestly haven’t taken it off all weekend. Rad cowboy-ish leather boots from the Solestruck babes to finish it off. Let me answer your question. Yes. Yes this was my Labor Day BBQ look. Black and blue 4ever.

Maison Martin Margiela Heritage

Maison Martin Margiela Heritage

If you are a lover of simplicity and minimalism, you’ve probably already seen the images of Maison Martin Margiela’s Heritage Collection. The ‘Héritage’ collection recasts the conventional symbols of wedding and heirloom pieces, blending uniqueness with luxury in an unconventional way. This collection is divided into 4 themes: ‘Solitaire’, ‘Alliance’, ‘Chevalière’ and ‘Pompadour’. I’m not much into fine jewelry but that astonishingly beautiful sapphire and white gold ring is quickly making me change my mind.

live in levis

Classic with a twist. Like coca cola in a glass bottle with a turquoise bendy straw. Did I lose you? Levis. A classic denim company with reinvented styles. I was super excited when asked to be apart of the Lookbook x Levis #liveinlevis collab. After heading to the Levis store in Santa Monica and trying on lots of styles, I decided on these high-rise, grey skinnies. I styled the jeans with a cutoff sweatshirt and laced ankle boots for an unintentionally (wink wink) monochromatic look. Check out the post on Lookbook here. This is how I #liveinlevis

romp around

Literally squeezing every last playsuit look in before sweater-leather season hits. I may have actually come around to summer dressing this year, even if it was mostly *surprise* black. I underestimated how nice wearing something simple and skimpy, like this romper, would be. Added some (poser) tough girl vibes with my bad a** YSL boots and cinched the waist with a studded belt. Wait. August is almost over? Please hold on while I fake cry because it’s almost fall. *million emoji heart eyes*

weekend vibes

Clearly I’ve been super into overalls of all varieties. My current go-to is this little pinafore dress by Res Denim. It’s the perfect weekend staple and looks equally cool over a tee, tank, bikini or baggy sweater. Although tempted to wear my birks, I paired the look with leather high tops to avoid farm girl vibes. Happy Saturday!

Yvonne Koné’s new store



Nude pink, fig tree, iron and brass with worn wooden floors are the sophisticated elements that compose Yvonne’s brand new flagship store in Copenhagen. I can personally attest to the quality and beauty of her bags as I own a travel sized version of her design and it is an heirloom piece that I’ve already used multiple times. Now her store is the perfect display for her goods, with romantic colors and deep hues and a pink that’s similar to one I’ve been working with already, so I’m definitely a fan.

The space was designed by Studio Oliver Gustav, read & see more about it (including ‘before’ shots) here and if you’re in Copenhagen, won’t you see it in person for me?

GRATITUDE

The past week was a mix between hard work and enjoyment. Hard work because even though it was my “birthday week”, I worked non stop to get Two M Projects where it needs to be (good old deadlines). Enjoyment because I can finally see some of the samples taking shape and form. Any free time I had was spent on Skype, with friends and family, and I got to spend real time with my friends over the weekend. Their company was great and I had (many) birthday drinks. Thank you everyone who took the time to make me feel special, for all the love and positivity. The more grateful you are for what you have, the more the universe wants to give you. Abundance favours gratitude.” Feeling so blessed! ♡

When it comes to decorations in my home, I choose always less is more.
Not because I don´t like many things but only because I think it is easier to find stuff. 
Decorating with few things gives also more calming expression and less details to look at. And with less stuff in front at a time, highlights all your favorite things. Here´s some of mine favorites right now.

STENHUGGARDOTTERN ____________ stone/ marble plates

Beautiful things don´t just happen. Neither did this gorgeous plate of limestone. It is a product of generational genuine craftsmanship, where the father has been running a stonemasonry as his father and now the creative daughter Josefine has used their knowledge of the stone and taken it to the next level and started to make these beautiful stone plates. The plates are available in two different designs in limestone and Carrara marble. Gotta love the limestone! More pictures on their home page here.

HEY LONDON ___________________

I´ve had fantastic time in London and shooting a really great story for the blog. So now, can´t wait for coming home and edit the pictures and to show you what I have been doing here!

NEW DESIGN______________________ a bird

Today opens the first gastro hotel Pm in Växjö Sweden and it´s also the first one in Scandinavia. And for this hotel I have had the assignment to design a new object that would match my pyramids. The result was this geometrical shape in brass called bird. The inspiration for the bird came from the Japanese art form origami, where you fold paper into three-dimensional objects. The objects will look a little bit different on how to place them and how the light reflects on to them and is also works as a bookend.


INTERIOR ______________________ something new

There´s always happening something new or just something with my interior. And I just noticed that I haven´t posted a picture about our new brass lamp in the living room. As usually we are doing and testing our prototypes ourselves first in our home. So,so far this is only a prototype. I am going to London next week just to catch up some new inspiration and hopefully visit some design studios. So if you have good advices on what I should not miss while I´m there I´m more than happy to hear about it, just send me an email. annaleena@annaleena.se Thanks in advance!

ACCESSORIES ___________________________ hay


As a interior stylist/blogger I browse through every day lots of great pages on the internet and see so many good stuff that I never post about. That´s why I have started now a new label here on the blog called accessories.
The uncrowned king of accessoarier is definitely Danish hay. Although their brand is wide with a solid furniture collection, it is the little accessories that everyone can afford, that has made the brand so famous and loved among non interior interested too. In my own collection of hay I have bought the scissors, golden clips and the round mirror which I use as props to my stylist assignment.
