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…

Christian Halleröd designs Totême’s Stockholm store

Totême is a Swedish brand created back in 2014 by model Elin Kling and her partner Karl Lindman, and she’s partially to blame for our daughter’s name as well. ;) The clothing line features that simple Scandinavian style you’d expect but that doesn’t mean ordinary, the collections are luxurious (expect to pay upwards of $100 for a white tee) while maintaining an air of effortless, chic style.


Newly opened is their Stockholm store/design studio which was designed by the renowned Christian Halleröd. The purpose of the space was to allow visitors a place to see the brand up close, see some of the design process in action along with a self service station with mirrors and rack of clothes to try on in addition to pre-ordering items from upcoming collections.


Note Design Studio’s office, based on the Neutral Color System


It’s practically unheard of for me to upload so many images for a single post, but I love every single shot taken of Note Design Studio’s office that why hold back? Take the full tour!

Note Design Studio collaborated with Sørensen Leather, a Danish supplier whose past collaborations boast names like Norm Architects, Kinfolk and Fritz Hansen, to create The Colour Box based on the Neutral Color System (NCS) which is used the world over for color communication. Note Design Studio says,

“Our concept is based on the idea of redefining natural leather. In a common sense, we easily define natural leather in tones of colors that range from brown to black. But our approach has been to look into nature itself, to find the true colors in nature, and to define and collect them into a harmonious scale.”

I find the collab to be a very natural partnership as NDS has always used color in a bold way, and on a different scale that most. Previous projects of theirs proves this to be so.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, today is voting day. It also happens to be my birthday and while I will spare you my political opinions (though if you’re friends with me on Facebook I’m not nearly so vague) I’m glad to say I’ve casted my vote …

a new Lily at home

We have a new, classic silver addition to our living room. Designed by Ivar Ålenius Björk for the world fair in 1939, the Lily candlestick was later produced by 400 year old Swedish brand Skultuna. I’m actually a little hesitant to put a candle in it because the metallic finish is so nice, sans fingerprints from my 2 year old.
You can find this along with other pieces from Skultuna in one of my favorite stores, Stilleben!

Melo’s first range of products, which are handcrafted on demand in the small village Mockfjärd in Dalarna, received order requests from all over the world. The company is now pleased to announce that it can deliver to the US and Canada, which means Melo, now has global distribution.

– Our ambition to create timeless furniture that last over time, with a strong Swedish identity – both in terms of design and craftsmanship – have generated interest worldwide. We’ve already sent products across Europe and now we’re proud to offer products to the US and Canada as well, says Axel Wennhall, co-founder of Melo.”

rose colored glasses

I buy at least two pairs of sunglasses every Summer, it’s not because I lose them but because I always end up buying $8 H&M shades or something else that seems like a good idea in the moment but have no staying power.
This year I really wanted to break that cycle of cheap sunglasses so when Triwa offered to send a couple pairs my way, I enthusiastically agreed!
I suppose this is a bit of a tease because this is one of two pairs but I really liked these Peach Nicki‘s since I predictably almost always choose black. They come in a firm case that for me is a necessity as they will got tossed around the inside of my car and purses.

something to wear

Because finding something to wear is a daily struggle (let’s not even talk about the random weather patterns) and I’m always look for “mom clothes”, meaning stuff I can wear while taking care of the kids and not feel ridiculous or overdone/underdone. A skirt with an elastic waist and a textured tee? Yes.
