Superfront - superlove

A few days before my New York trip I had an event in Stockholm and when I was there I went threw Mood gallery on my way and found a little piece of heaven! (It´s not often that I get this excited over a new design.) In a showroom on the top floor a new company, Superfront, is showing their fantastic selection of fronts produced to match IKEAs cabinets. But believe me, this is as far from IKEA as you can get. It´s pure luxury and high end design! The colours are suttle, patterns feel contemporary yet long lasting, the design of knobs adds "that little extra" one wants for the great impression. I just wished I´d come up with this fantastic idea to pimp your ordinary kitchen into greatness.

Behind this new company stands two Swedish guys, Mick Born and Sander Aarts. I had the pleasure to meet them in their showroom and was very impressed by their approch and ideas. The greater part of the production is made in Dalarna, Sweden. I find that a great bonus since I´m all for localy produced products with a heart and soul. So, now I know how to get my kitchen to look fantastic without paying a fortune! I´m in super-love and with Superfront the best of luck!!

Instagram New York

I´ve just got back from a great trip to New York. We were hoping to meet a warm, green New York, full of spring feelings but instead we were freezing our ... off. But even if we didn´t enjoy the icy wind or the wet snow, it´s always the best city in the world. The worlds best coffee at Ground Support, a walk around Whole Foods Market, breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien. And the best time ever at Red Rooster in Harlem. Of course we did a lot of work as well, but that´s an other story...

I´m back

So, after almost an eight month long break from this blog I´m finally ready to get back in buisness! When I was on vacation last summer my attention was of course to get back writing again as soon as possible but life got in between and my energy was totaly directed towards my daily work instead. But then a couple of days ago I attended a very nice blog event with Borås Tapeter and Trendenser and I just realized how much I missed blogging.

I asked around my friends and colleges what they would like to see in my blog and they all asked for pictures of my pantings. So this morning I´ve been walking around the house with my Ipad and tried to document some of "my work". Hopefully we (my husband and I) will get enough paintings done to have an exibition in Gothenburg. As you can see I have a thing for color. Lots of it. I started painting when our son was born and I found out that all this color gave me energy (something I really needed back then...)

I hope all of you that followed me earlier haven´t given up completely... I´m back and I hope so are you!
