Concrete + copper = new stockholm restaurant

Milan 2013: geometry in the air
Who says a pendant must hang straight from the ceiling?I always tell my student to think twice about how they treat the "air space" in a room. When I saw these solutions, I just went: yes!!! I just love the way London based designer Michael Anastassiades String Lights for...

Did you have a great Easter vacation? I did, and have some great images to show for it. Until then, let me repost this from another blog I use to run. Love these shades of pale blues, almost grey shades from the 1950s palett. Cool, elegant and very, very trendy. Any favs? Cool, fresh and...

Exoticism is currently a strong trend in art and design. And I have mixed feelings. I'm fascinated by painted faces and expressive mask from all corners of the world. I am drawn to the unfamiliar. At the same time, I agree with Alden Jones definition of exoticism as the representation of one...
Natural beauties from japan
Award winning japanese designer Katsumi Machimura started off as a jewelry designer in the 1960s, and didn't dig his hands into clay until years later. His stunning ceramic work has both elegance and roughness - proper gems in themselves! Katsumi Machimura also love gardening, and...
As if time stood still
I just love the relaxed atmosphere in these images from Hill End in Australia. Once a large settlement, Hill End has shrunk to a small village - but the pull it exerts on artists brings new life to its historic homes. Visiting artists find Hill End unique and paintable. These images are from...

Have I mentioned that I love glass? Glass sculptures, vases or the odd drinking glass placed on a windowsill. Love the way crystal glass reflects rays of light far into a room. Or a colored piece of glass making patterns on a wall. I guess I'm lucky then to live in a glassmaking country, with...

Today I sent this 20 year old lady off to meet her brother in cat heaven. Sad, of course, but I try to focus on the good sides... like uninterrupted sleep. Not this, only too familiar situation, anymore!WABI SABI interior design art photography...
Spot the hidden potential
Spring cleaning, and preparing for a lecture on Sunday. And found this: an old interview with me, where I try to explain the difference between styling and homestaging. (A sysifos task, it seems...)Styling (products) and staging (homes) are almost always mixed up here in Sweden, as seen on the...
From me to you!
