Summer mood

 Apart from spending time with family, good food and relaxation are key ingredients for a great summer. I love to cook, especially at this time of the year. Here are some of my favorites; grilled scallops with dill oil, cucumber sandwiches or homemade pizza with artichoke.

Classic graphic

You can never go wrong with the classic black and white. Monocrome or together, it´s always cool.

Cool cut

Michelle Williams, Twiggy, Winona Ryder...really cool women with even cooler haircuts.
I just got back from the hairdresser, looking like always. Sometimes I wish I had the courage (and the face) to carry a short hairdo. But I am a wimp...

Pastel pretty

I know I´ve talked about pastels a hundred times already but I just got so inspired by this really fresh selection of fashion shots from Marie Claire Australia. So I say it again: fashion and interior goes hand in hand when it comes to colour.

I have a thing for copper, or 'rose gold' as the fashion world like to call it. "Dear things have many names" as we say in Sweden. Nevermind, I just like it a lot. Especially when you mix it with cream leather as on the bike or with raw wood as on candelholder. They can move in any time... Just saying.

Vacation dreams

I´ve promised myself not to complain about the never ending rain, but I just can´t help myself. Get me away from here...now...please! Desperate to see some sunlight, I´ve been surfing on the net like a mad man. And I found heaven on earth; San Giorgio in Mykonos, Greece. I´m thinking; a book and a bikini, and I am all set to go. At least this plan would work in my head, maybe not in real life. So, rainy Sweden, lets spend the summer together...

Blogger´s Inn

Ah, I´m finally back after a few days of major internet disconnection. During my absence online, I´ve been to a really nice press-breakfast for the new Bloggers Inn room at Scandic Rubinen in Gothenburg. It´s a room especially designed for bloggers. Filled with all the technology one can require but also with great comfort and design. Frida Ramstedt at Trendenser have been in charge of the consept and execution. As the great talent as she is the result was great. Lots of personal touches that makes a nice hotelroom become fantastic.

Missing the sun

Ok, I live in Sweden, not in Brazil, but seriously...where is the sun? This isn´t funny anymore. I don´t want to play hide and seak. A grey sky and a jacket, is sooo not June. So in it´s absent, I give myself and all of you some sunny yellow to get things started.

It's a family affair: Bolon by Missoni

What happens when award-winning Swedish design meets legendary Italian fashion? The answer will be revealed this spring when the results of a new, cross-border venture between two internationally renowned and highly regarded family businesses are unveiled. The Swedish flooring company Bolon has joined with the Italian fashion house Missoni to create its latest collection. This brilliantly coloured, uplifting and energising collection of exclusive woven floors gives new and exciting expression to Missoni's beloved and characteristic attributes.

"My sister Marie and I came into contact with Missoni a few years ago and we quickly found common ground. The same philosophy about life, views about design, both Bolon and Missoni are strong family businesses with their own production lines, third-generation entrepreneurs, our products are woven - as you can imagine, we saw eye-to-eye on most things. The idea of entering into a partnership also came naturally. As you know, we love finding new dimensions and setting ourselves new challenges. Creative collaborations, like this one with Missoni, give us the energy to shift into a higher gear," says Annica Eklund, Managing Director of Bolon.

Blog your dreams

A few days ago Tant Johanna sent out a blog challenged, to show your dreams in images. We have bought our dream home, the problem is just that it doesn´t look anything like we want it to. We have a misstreated 70´s house and our mission for the next few years is to create something like the images above. As you can see we have a lot of work ahead of us.

If you are interested in more of my moodboard photos, please join me at Pinterest and follow my "For the home" board.

It´s the Swedish national day today. We haven´t had our national day as a 'holiday' for very long so no one have yet made any traditions especially for this day. At work we were all a bit confused what to do a day like this. What to eat, were to go etc. For me it´s been a lazy day in the sun. Perfect.
