As some of you know, I have been in the slow process of redecorating my apartment but have often felt disheartened about the size of my apartment (which is not actually that small by Stockholm standards). These pictures from the lovely home of Josepfine Hååg at 20kvadrat remind us that we can have a beautifully styled home in a small living area. I love the flashes of nude and grey and the photo wall, not to mention extremely envious of the grey artek stools.

Hope you guys are also inspired to make small living spaces work!!!

On our mind for February

Feb wishlistSo I have a been a little bit slow on the blog-posting front this month due to all the things that life has thrown me (including a new dog) so here is a slightly late wishlist for february. This month there is a stronger focus on essential wardrobe basics, which I can never get enough of. I have not started thinking about my wishlist for spring, so these items are items that I would love to wear and use now.

1. Delicate gold jewelry

I generally do not wear a whole lot of jewelry and often try to steer clear of gold as it can look a bit funny with my tan skin but I totally fell for these beautiful and delicate pieces designed by Lara Melchior for & other stories. 

2. The perfect minimal silk camisole

Every girl should have a great black or white camisole in their wardrobe. Looks great paired with jeans, or for a more dressed up look with a black loose-fitted blazer (what I wore for valentines dinner last night). My all time favourite camisole is from Tibi but I have found a beautiful budget option with lace details from Monki (this one looks prettier in real life, I promise).

3. A new scent

I have to admit that I am one of those girls who buys one type of perfume and uses it almost every other day (Chloé by Chloé, in my case). However, I am looking to change it up this month and I am contemplating Rose Noir by Byredo. Byredo also makes beautiful leather perfume cases which I am currently pining for.

4. The perfect black shoulder bag

Although I could probably carry my black tote bag around every day I am still on the quest for the perfect black shoulder bag for evenings and those occasions when you just dont need much with you… This one from COS is my curent favourite.

5. The perfect boyfriend jeans

Since I have been wearing tight fitting black jeans/pants almost every day this winter, I am really longing for a lighter more relaxed option. The best boyfriend jeans, in my opinion are POP from Acne Studios.

6.  Versatile black ankle boots

My acne pistols have seen better days so really need to buy a new pair of black boots. I am particularly picky when it comes to this because black ankle boots are my most worn staple so they have to be both versatile and comfortable. What do you guys think of these boots?

7. Grey cashmere scarf

I am a sucker for a cashmere scarf, so much so that I have probably over-worn my black cashmere scarf this winter. Desperately need this Grey canada scarf from ACNE but they are sold out in this colour!

What is your favourite item? and which items do you think I should get?

Wednesday Interior Inspiration

Several months ago, the owner and founder of my favourite interior stores, Artilleriet, put his apartment in Stockholm on the market, and shortly thereafter, the internet was flooded with pictures of his inspiring and eclectic home. Apologies if you have already seen these pictures but I just really wanted to share them with you guys. My favourite items are the Batwing chair, the Thornet chairs, and the David Ehrenstråhle guide to Bombay (Print). I especially love all carefully placed quirky little details.

What are your favourite details about this apartment?

I have been a great fan of interior stylist Lotta Agaton, for some some time, and she has worked her magic yet again for the latest string campaign. These pictures just make me feel of a white swedish winter (which has just arrived in Stockholm this weekend!) Hope you are all having a wonderful sunday wherever you are.

DIY book sculptures

DSC_1339

Book sculptures have been a favourite styling piece among several scandinavian interior stylists the last few seasons, but you would be surprised how easy they are to make. I have probably made about 10-15 in total and have used them as styling pieces on my shelf, desk, or windowsill.

All you need is:

Old books (I tend to use thick paperback books)

Scissors

If you have some spare time this weekend, why not give it a go. The “diamond” book sculpture is the easiest to make: simply fold each page in the book the exact same way (as pictured below). If you want to, have a go at the other book sculpture (what I refer to as) the “Sydney Opera House” sculpture – simply fold every second page in half (as pictured below)

I would recommend starting from the front to the back. You can either cut the covers off the books or leave them on.
