Annaleenas calender



A strike of genious. Yesterday I visited Annaleenas HEM  and found this amazing calender. I haven´t made a calender in my life but now when our son is old enough I want to make him one. So I´ll steel this great idea and say thank you to Annaleena for yet another DIY project to love.

Grey stars


I´ve been gathering photos of christmas decorations for a while now (if you follow me at Pinterest you´ve seen...) and when I came across these grey stars at Daniella Witte I just fell in love. Unfortunally her store Inreda Utreda is a bit to far from where I live but fortunally Daniella is kind enough to send some in the mail. Now I just have to decide how many I will buy.

Inspiring workspace





I just read an article about inspiring offices the other day. They were showing pictures of futuristic and fantastic workspaces around Gothenburg. That made me think about my own workspace. Sorry, "X" (the company I work for, that I don´t want to name), but I have to say that the area where we work (and I´m working with design!) is anything but inspiring... What would we create if our daily surrounings looked anything like this? Something great I´m sure. What´s like were you work? Does the area make you feel creative?

Forever black






I keep feeling inspired by sharp, graphic shapes in charcoal black. As simple and clean as possible.

Little Studio.



Yesterday I got a mail from Little Studio, run by Marit Lissdaniels and Angelica Utterberg. They started their company in 2010 with mainly posters but have now also designed cusions, cutting boards, trays and other lovley items for the design consious home. Everything is produced in Sweden, which I think is great. I really like their mix of patterns and colours, it feels fresh! Check out the website.

Black is black

As a fasion designer it´s almost expected to always wear black. At the last seminar with Li Edelkoort, she was talking about wearing black as a kind of sheld. Something one wear to become invisble and protected. When it comes to interior it´s the other way around, going "all black" becomes a statement of boldness.

Grey dreams






It´s time to realize that the days are getting shorter and grey will be the general colour on our sky for the next coming months. However, I find this colour beautiful and peaceful. Layers of knits, natural linnen sheets, distressed concrete walls and weather bleached wood, they all look so nice in cool shades of grey.

Gender bender

I´ve been thinking a lot about femine versus masculine the last couple of days. Can you tell if a woman or a man have designed an item? Is there a different kind of mindset when it comes to design? Is there a difference between male and female bloggers? If there is a difference, are we slowly changing our minds and  will "meet in the middle"? In fashion, dressing with a "Gender bender" twist is THE thing right now. We borrow from the male wardrobe and use masculine attributes like they are our own. And according to the magazines, "metrosexual" men is no longer a trend it´s a natural way of living. What do you think? Are men and women different when designing?

A colourful fall





It´s a beautiful autumn day, with winter nowhere in sight. So I´m really feeling for some bold colours a day like this. It gives me the right energy and the creativity is on top. Love this messy and creativ studio, love the J.Crew fall collection and I love painting with brights at the moment.
