My idol Li

I´m in Stockholm right now to visit a lecture by the icon in trend forecast, Li Edelkoort. I try to see her whenever she´s in Sweden and tomorrow it´s time again for an inspiration injection. Li is the founder of the trendbureau, Trend Union and for some time now she´s had a website, Trend Tablet, open for everyone to see some of her work. I know I´ve written about this before but she´s so great it´s worth repeating.

Icon women of all ages

I have a thing for strong women. They inspire me. It can be old glamouros moviestars, pioneering artists or just strong and beautiful women in general. Women that have had a mind of their own, done their thing no matter what and expressed themselfs in some way. I´m sure we all have icons and here are some of mine;
Iris Apfel, the New York fasionista with a style of her own
Marilyn Monroe
Audery Hepburn
Louise Borgeois, my favorite artist of all time
Jane Birkin, how many women have a bag named after her...
Sophia Loren
Frida Kahlo
Anouk Aimee, great actress
and the fabulous artist Gae Aulenti.

Friday sweets

I´m loving the light and the cold natural tones mixed together. I´m loving how the dusty lilacs feels. I love that it´s friday...

A pick me up fix

When I came home today our whole garden was like a huge mud hole, at least 3 meters deep. It was not a pretty sight... So I need something that can bring a smile to my face; yellow!

Garden obsession

For the last month we have spent most of our time in the garden. Not making it nicer, we have taken down everything, flower, trees you name it, around the house so we can get some drainage work done. So, today the dumper and excavator arrived. It will be a mess for the next couple of weeks... Therefor I´ve been looking for inspiration for the future dream garden. What do you think makes the perfect outdoor space?
