A new location for this Stockholm salon, Paloma Dolores

Almost exactly one month ago in Stockholm three women named Anna, Karin and Isabella open their newer and larger hair salon location.

The women designed and sketched the renovation for their new spots and chose every facet of the interior themselves. From the color palette to mirrors and even the bespoke smocks made exclusively for Paloma Dolores, every part of this space has evidence of their personal handiwork. The owners even got their handy boyfriends to pitch in on a lot of the work.

The beautiful photos were taken by Ulrika, who will recognize from her recent articles including this Autumnal DIY and part I of a city guide to STHLM! Find the new location at Östgötagatan, in Södermalm.

Tour the home of a Swedish fashion designer and actor in their childhood home

Nicole works as a fashion designer for & Other Stories and Andreas Wilson is an actor. They live in Enskedefältet, just outside Stockholm with their two children in the home Nicole grew up in. Once they moved in however they had to make the place their own and changed virtually every surface, moved walls and completely remodeled the kitchen which is now on the opposite side of the house.
Also, their amazing Rio coffee table is by Charlotte Perriand for Cassina!

A gallery-like kitchen fades from beige to white

For me the kitchen and bathrooms in a house need to be modern, bright and clean. The cozy elements are best used in bedrooms and living rooms where textiles can be layered on. With kitchens however, where so much food prep, washing and cooking are done, I love smooth clean surfaces like the ones in this kitchen. The simple lines and well lit corners really elevate this to near gallery quality, including a spotlit display nook right in the center of it all. Pinkish beige cabinets are a color I wouldn’t have thought to choose but with a grey backsplash they seem to fade into the lighter color of the island.

H&M’s newest retail store, Arket, opens in Copenhagen with a stunning interior

H&M, the multi-faceted Swedish brand has created yet another retail store called Arket which opens its first location in Copenhagen today at Købmagergade 33. The interior structure and design was inspired by historical archives. The all grey space is housed in what was previously the Royal Danish Mail warehouse.

“When working on the store concept, it was in developing new solutions to practical challenges that we found most of our inspiration,” says creative director Ulrika Bernhardtz. “Two of these challenges were how to create breathing space in the store, and how to devise an uncomplicated and flexible way of presenting and editing our broad assortment.”

IKEA’s renewable shelving system, Svalnäs

Currently at home we have become more and more concerned about the environment. I should stop here and make sure you know I am no poster child for being eco friendly! Sometimes we use plastic bottles and sometimes we buy unnecessary things and sometimes we create too much waster. However! The environment and our impact on it has moved more and more to the forefront of our mind and it slowly changing the way to make decisions. Recently I purchased a set of glass water bottles for us to reuse. They are very similar in the to the plastic disposable versions we used to drink from but now we simply wash and refill.
This has also become a dialogue we involve the kids in. Talking often about how we can do more with less and consider the impact of our choices is really good for all of us, no matter our age.

And so, we gladly welcome IKEA’s Svalnäs shelving into our home, which is made from renewable bamboo. It’s not going to single handedly save the planet but it is a step in the right direction to put our efforts and support towards material that can be easily replenished. The system is composed of shelf components of various widths and depths, a desk and drawer with recessed dividers. The entire unit is very light weight and best of all, fully cusotmizable. The tracks the shelves hang from come in differing lengths so each section can be customized vertically and horizontally.

At home this storage system is used to hold overflow kitchen items, books and a paper lamp Storuman, also from IKEA. I chose low profile shelves with a shallow depth because our funny angled wall leads into the living room and I didn’t want to obstruct the view. These can easily accommodate a single vertical sets of shelves or continue on across a very wide wall. It’s also nice to add some warmth from this Svalnäs unit to our monochrome kitchen via this adjacent wall.

favorites from the week

Yesterday was my 9 year wedding anniversary. Of course I didn’t Instagram any of it, so did it really happen? ;) Actually we spent the day alone without the kids and my husband planned the day with breakfast then paddle boarding and later a movie. We saw The Lobster, which I liked except that there was a man sitting directly in front of us with a laughing problem and he would laugh at every little thing and very loudly. There were a few tragic scenes and the entire theater would be hushed and he would just belly lough so loudly. Other than that it was a really nice day.

/I thought I’d share a few favorite newish things floating around the house this week. The dress I wore last night is a micro pleated metallic dress from Zara.
/I have also been searching for a good make up remover/cleanser for a while and a friend recommended this cleansing water by Korean brand Dr. Jart and so far I love it. Even after I washed my face this removed more dirt/makeup so my skin feels super clean!
/Ikea’s Viktig collection, a collab with Swedish artist Ingegerd Råman, is selling out but I really like these glass bowls. They’re sort of a soup or cereal sized bowl but I’ve been using them for fresh berries with breakfast. Their shape is so nice and the glass is thick and crystal clear, not at all tinted like some glass.
/A couple days ago I also picked up the latest copy of OAK magazine and to be entirely honest I haven’t managed to get through the whole thing yet but from what I’ve seen so far it’s full of great material. You can find the previous issue #4 here.
/Lastly, I’ve started yoga & barre classes and needed a new yoga mat so I ordered this extra long white one, though I’m already second guessing my ability to keep it clean! Also, now I need a good strap for it. I’m thinking I might DIY one from leather…?

new from String

I wanted to share this news from String 2016,

“We continue our outstanding collaborations with Lotta Agaton (styling), Magnus Ingerstedt (AD) and Marcus Lawett (photography). The end of 2015 was marked by the making and taking of new, fantastic images with focus on showing how the String system can be utilized in the best possible way. Our aim with this year’s catalogue was to display examples of different rooms showing how String fits in everywhere; in the hallway, the bathroom, the bedroom, the living room, in the home office and, last but not least, in the kitchen.”

I am very drawn to these warm colors, they feel so inviting and peaceful.

As usual, I’m not the first to get to this. I read about it a bit ago but just saw these photos, some that haven’t been circulated as heavily as the others so I thought I’d share. I’m really into these blues and small bit of natural brown/mustard.

green for Fall

Images from the new wallpaper collection by Boråstapeter have these wonderful jade greens, which I’m really into for Fall. I think the rosy wood, wicker and leather materials are such a nice compliment to this green hue.

I don’t often think of wallpapering in my own home but I’ve always wanted to have additional space in my home to experiment with different treatments like this or paint colors. Even to have an extra room with unusual furniture pieces that I might not feel comfortable in my main living space but in a place where I can feel free to try and fail and branch out into different styles, well it’s kind of been a fantasy of mine. Maybe it’s time to consider finding my own studio but with the kids at home with me I doubt that would work, right now.

For now I’ll have to admire from afar because I’m not quite brave enough to make bold color additions but then again I did just paint Elin’s room pink so, never say never.

Just as modern now as 1949 when designed. The flexibility and easiness with the system makes it a Scandinavian classic.”String plex | “Is this a new design? we often hear. But no, the clear Perspex panels was designed in the 5o’s as a complement to the ladder shelf.”String pocket | “The smallest member in our family. So small it fits in almost every space. Now in two new colors, green and cobalt blue.”String works | “The newcomer. Designed by Björn Dahlström and Anna von Schewen it fits at home as well as in the office.The height adjustable table and the free standing shelf makes it easy to create a flexible working space.”
