Absolutely love their work, both with the layout and with their photos. Looking […]

Daylight Home by Ma-Style Architects

This home combines a lot of wood together. The color of the wood and the contrast between the different textures is perfectly balanced and we think the cubic structure, ceiling and patterns of sunlight are amazing. Ma-Style Architects added lamina…

CLOSET

From my bedroom corner. As you can see my closet isn’t that big. This is one of the few reasons we would need a bigger apartment. I’m dreaming of a walk in closet (who doesn’t, right?) where I could hang all my clothes by color. What a dream. In the next issue of the Swedish Interior Magazine RUM HEMMA I’ll share my […]

Desert Storm

There’s something simple and beautiful about these images by photographer Cameron Hammond.  Simplicity can sometimes be the key in good story telling, leaving the observer to descipher their own meanings to the images.  Add all those ingredients and the super babes Lola McDonnell and another favourite Jana Kruger who I once styled and creatively directed […]

AUTUMN CLOTHING

Spring and summer is wonderful but there’s something special about autumn, when it gets colder and the air is fresh. Love to take long walks and afterwards go to a cafe and have a cup of hot chocolate. It’s so cozy! Ok, I have to admit the hot chocolate part is my favorit but anyways. When it comes to clothing, autumn […]

BOUQUET

Yesterday was a great  day and we’re very excited about the good news. Hopefully I can tell you more about it soon. Tonight our friends have arranged an “Italian evening”.

LIGHT FLOW

We’ve started looking for a bigger apartment now. We’re aware that it may take a long time to find what we’re looking for now that we’re really happy with our current apartment. I would say that the light flow is almost the most important thing. A bigger apartment with big windows letting that studio light in. And of course a few other […]
