Chloé crush





I love my job. I love fashion and I am always excited to see all the fashion shows each season. I like a lot of designers but I love a few, and Chloé is one of my absolute favorites. The colours, the fabrics, the feminine yet modern cuts! It´s true poetry...
This year Chloé celebrates a 60 year anniversery. Bon anniversaire!

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!

Instagram vacation

As you might have guessed I am on vacation and therefor not the most active of bloggers. Spending the days on an island is fantastic and if you are interested about what I do, then please follow me at Instagram. As alias designbird of course...

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.

Copper



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...
