Sundling/Kickén’s Latest Project is an Example of More With Less

How is it Friday?! Excuse me while I have a mini panic attack how the fact that the week is already over! Ok, I’m good now.Not sure how this week has been for you but it has, obviously, felt seemed to have flown by for me. The blog didn’t get much love…

Rustic minimalism in the kitchen

Sounds a bit oxymoronic to say rustic and minimalism like this, as if they are at all compatible. However Nordiska Kök has proven they can go together quite seamlessly in a way that is true to both descriptions. A dark stained wood gives a rustic the k…

Originally a factory where cardboard was produced and then later a grade school, this building in Kungshöjd. Within walking distance are coffee shops, night clubs, a market and restaurants.

6 things I liked this week (from last week)

A brief overview of some of the things I saw and liked last week, delayed because we went on a quick trip out of town last week and I was enjoying disconnecting for those days! The whole family visited friends, spent the day at the beach flying kites and ate at some new restaurants. It was nice to to step out of our routine and stay up late, eat candy (mostly the kids), and make it all up as we go along. But now we’re back home and back in our rhythm so this is a catch up from what I saw online back then.

Autumn news from COS, I like the brown tones in these images as well as that shaped skirt.

This Cobra lamp from Artilleriet swivels 360 ° around to project light in different directions. Cobra was designed by Elio Martinelli in 1968 and was of the first lighting fixtures made with a special resin casting system. Also it’s this functional sculptural type of piece that I love so much right now.

Next-level 5 strand braids from the Jill Sander’s runway, I’m putting this on my weekend to do list of tutorials to youtube!

Maiju’s beautiful styling of Swedish Midnatt‘s new organic bedding line, this Dromedary color is heading for Elin’s bed now and is a very simple way of making her room feel more seasonal Fall ready.

These clay, wax-filled jars from H&M are candles and they come in three color ways and two sizes, the largest being a lidded jar. I like that the candles can live two lives, once the wax has burned down clean out the remainder and reuse your jar to store small things like cotton balls or other toiletries!

Autumn trend / Formex

IKEA’s projections for Autumn’s Formex event are centered around “Nordic Space”. This theme is meant to defy the darkness of the approaching months by using natural and durable materials, contrasted by textured and shiny surfaces. As people will soon tend to spend more and more time indoors, the home becomes our place to retreat and reload. Creating areas of softness with pillows and other textiles the body can get comfortable while the brain takes a break. By pulling together natural colors like clay and sand, a warm yet monochrome atmosphere appears to complement the high shine of metal or glossy accessories and the sleekness of home technologies.
