I am moving my blog to Swedish interior magazine Elle Interiör. You are so very welcome to come over and visit me there. I am still not sure if I will continue writing in English or not. I will also be at malo in the garden as usual and I am keeping the same e-mail address.

Isn't this the cutest lamp ever? Stubby and stylish. The lamp stand made of ash tree. I am in love.

I really enjoyed making this christmas gift calendar for the kids. I've never done one before but I learned that the work I put in was a small prize to pay considering how easy it was to get them out of their beds this morning. Happy december!

in the mail

A photo from KW, the institute of contemporary art in Berlin .
By immensely talanted and generous Kristina of no penny for them.  See the photo here. I am fascinated by the depth and the reflections. I can't stop looking at it. Sinking into it. Earlier today I found my nine year old standing looking at it. All absorbed. It's calm and yet very dramatic at the same time depending on how you look. Thank you so much,  Kristina!

I need light. It's unbelievable dark here. This time of year I always fantasize about being a bear and sleep all winter. I could do that. Definitely.

Bright parisian bedroom from Sköna hem.

This book, Arkitektens fritidshus (maybe something like The Architect's Summer House), by Kenneth Kauppi and photographer Patric Johansson is on my Christmas wish list.

new wallpaper up

I posted this wallpaper before, here. Obligat mutualism by Ida Arnfelt. We bought it and last night we put it up. I am so so happy with it. This is before.

Trying new things. Quorn instead of minced meat for the friday taco dinner(the kids didn't notice) and a new photoreceptive objective. With a steady hand you can take pictures in almost complete darkness. Without flash. I wish you a great weekend. We suddenly got snow here this week so I have some last minute gardening to do.

Beautiful wood wall panels in this house. Some of them painted with egg oil tempera.

stockholm archipelago

House for sale in the Stockholm archipelago. Look at the (three!) old cast iron stoves. Like royalties.
