I am very happy with my latest purchases from Ikea. I love the color and the pom poms of the carpet. I have been searching for the designer with no result. Anyway, the carpet is in our playroom in progress and I will show the result soon.

picnic baskets by Emma Hedberg

Multifunctional and happy baskets/stools/tables. I love it when designers use old and ordinary objects and turn them into something new and surprising. These baskets, I by Emma Hedberg, made me smile and fantasize about warm summer evenings by the sea. Check out Emma Hedbergs website to see more of her design and if you are in the area the designer will be at Nordiska trädgårdsmässan (garden fair)this weekend.


I just wanted to tell you that Jenny Almén Gunnerfeldt (blogged earlier here) is having an exhibition showing her pillows and drawings at TjallaMalla, Stockholm. Starting today. Her pillows are all made of vintage fabric and every pillow is an original drawing.


I might have some new visitors coming from Norway (and other places of course). I am so happy and proud that Astrid included me on this list over att I am in the company of some of my absolute favourite blogs and I am also very much looking forward to check out the blogs on the list that are new to me. Thank you Astrid!
To everyone stopping by this blog of mine - welcome! I hope that you'll find something that you like and also -if you are a blogger yourself -don't hesitate to link. I would love to hear from you.

weather report

Very strange weather here today. The sun was shining through my kitchen window on this cone lying on the counter. The next moment snow is whirling outside and now while writing this it's all still again. The sky graphite grey.

My big girl got this book, Origami For Kids - easy and fun step by step projects, for her birthday. Today we folded a lot of hats. It was fun until I tried the San-pou, candy box. It was not at all easy and fun. I made the same mistake over and over again and I havn't given it up but I think I'll have to practise alone. Mamma, are you angry with the paper? Of course not. Anyway, then I folded a heart and we took pictures of happy softies in hats. That was easy. And very fun.
Also: Origami Chair by So Takahashi

camo curtains

The curtains in this home are made of Swedish Army white snow camo net from Surplus and Adventure. I like it. I also like the color combo - rust-red, black and green - in the top image.

I guess i should be grateful not to be the owner of this kithen. My employer and some other people that I know would probably oppose of me refusing to leave it.

studio violet

I just ordered this poster from Studio Violet. It's on sale. I would have bought it anyway but I got afraid it would sell out.

I love these living rooms from Marie Claire Maison. And they made me think of Ellmania.

Summer time is coming up and I noticed while going through my recent photos that our windows are not at all prepared for light. I can't remember the last time we cleaned them. Obviously.


Lovely mirrors by wis design. Oblique avaliable at David Design and Bow avaliable at Nordiska Galleriet.

Rock 7

Hironori Tsukue has made it possible to use the famous "Sjuan" chair as a rocker. I love Tsukue's work in collaboration with Sara Berner (from 2007). And these lamps together with Erik Tidäng and Tobias Birgersson are amazing.

Today was all about presents, breakfast in bed, balloons, favourite food and choklate cake. Some jealousy too. I didn't take that picture though.
"Now it's over" she said just before falling asleep. One of those moments when your children bring your own childhood back.
