It might be spring and the whole idea of spring cleaning, or just simply me being fed up with having my shoes all mixed up and hard to get a good overview of, that made me once and for all organize my shoes. Whatever reason it might have been I must say I am pretty happy with my current shoe situation, and it really does inspire me more to pick different shoes in the morning since it’s no so easy! It’s not rocket science how I did this, so I will let you scroll down to see for yourself.
I chose to write the brand on the photo to make it even easier
You can even use it as side table in your bedroom ( Gotta love a multi-purpose )
All you need is this little guy and a marker pen
Easy peasy lemon squeezy, right?! Note to myself: Never throw away an empty shoe box ever again!
Anyone who knows me well knows that I absolutely love interior deco. Right now I’m drawn to leather, rattan, wood, the color white and plants. Very nature close colors and harmonic. If you think about it really doesn’t have to be that expensive to reach this type of home, most high street decor brands have products that will work well if you want to achieve this styling. Just check my favorites below and let’s be honest a green plant doesn’t cost a fortune either! Anyone who has more suggestions?
I love Instagram, that is just they way it is. I also love the fact that Instagram now allows you to save photos in a folder, perfect for an Instagram addict as myself who is constantly looking for inspiration. My last photos saved in my folder are the one above, a mix of fashion, decoration and art, just they way I like it.
Starting from top left, The stylist @linnhagglund apartment, My newfound Instagram obsession @mahyunmi style, my idol @irinalakicevic and her style, one of my favorite fashion brands @therow showing art (Man Ray; Needle and Thread, 1965) and the brand @toteme headquarters in Stockholm.
Welcome to my space, yes I have created a little space at home where I hang out. This is where I read my book and just relax. I think if you are busy and working a lot, it’s important to slow down every now and then, for me it works to have a specific place in the house for that actual slowing down process.
I got THIS PILLOW that I absolutely love from Maison Popineau It just brings some extra coziness to the space and also some color and character. One other extra plus is the fact that the pillow is made from feather filling, so not one of that synthetic pillow that will lose their shape within a week, and the pillowcase itself is made from cotton and silk patches all sewn together. A real quality pillow that is! Oh, and let’s not forget the fact that is made in France and is eco-friendly, Win win win!
The colors are from the french flag, and since I used to be Parisian I thought I would bring some french character into my London home.
Check out some more of my favorite pillows from the brand below. Should a get a pink one next time or the one with a lightning?? Decisions decisions…
When Londonswedes.com asked me to be part of their “Home at” series, where they interview various Swedes in London and photograph them in their home, I couldn’t say no. In the interview I talk about my jobs in fashion, what I would do if I didn’t work in fashion, the best things about London and many many more things you guys didn’t know about me.
Londonswedes is such a great community for us Swedes, you can find information on their site about anything from job offers, how Brexit affects us, apartments for rent and where you can find the best cinnamon bun in town ( Yes we swedes care about our cinnamon buns). Sometimes being a foreigner can be hard as you are used to your own countries rules, regulations and culture and it can be tricky to go about certain things, so it’s so good to have those kinds of sites!
The other day I attended the Next press day for their summer collection who will land in stores the first week of March. As always Next manage to deliver, this time I was slightly more drawn to the shoe collection rather than the ready to wear. I think mostly due to the fact that the shoes were smashing and I can’t get enough of a good pair of shoe. But it may also be because I have recently been dressing quite basic and instead put the power in the styling by pairing the look with an interesting shoe!
Enough talking and let me walk you through my favorites.
Red suede stilettos with ruffles, I want, No sorry I need!!!
Burgundy suede and more ruffles. Yes!
Pink heeled mules. They got all things right.
Rock tee, I always need a good rock tee in my life. Always.
I wouldn’t say no to those wide legged white jeans on a summer day. Styled with one of the shoes above.
Last but not least, my favorite from Next home departure, a pink neon sign saying Hola. I don’t think anyone understands how badly I need this in my home, it is by far the coolest home decor I have seen in a while. Need!!
Can’t wait for the summer collection to hit the stores, until then check out more things from Next HERE.
I have this thing for wooden floors or white wooden floor to be precise. I have been dreaming about it for the last couple of years now, there is something so clean and fresh that comes with it. It’s like a white canvas where if you add a colorful carpet the colors just pop in a way they wouldn’t have if it was a darker floor. Sometimes it makes me laugh how I’m so Scandinavian I actually am. You can take the Scandi-girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the Scandi-girl, or something like that…

I always had a thing for interior deco, it’s definitely my second love after fashion. Recently deco has been taking over my mind, has it to do with the fact that it’s winter time maybe and all you want to do is to stay home? I don’t know the reason but this is what I dreaming of right now. I thought I give you my three tips for a nicely decorated living room. Here we go!
Brass palm lamp
First of all brass in one of my favorite metals today when it comes to deco, and palm trees are, well simply just amazing. So the combination of a brass and palm tree that is turned into to a lamp can’t really go wrong. It’s useful (There can never be enough lights) and so beautiful at the same time. Better than a piece of art I would say.
Sure a classic gray, navy or white colored sofa is nice indeed, but lately, I explored the beauty of having colorful sofa in the house. Suddenly the sofa isn’t just a part of your decoration but instead the center of attention. Considering how big place they normally take it’s only natural that they shine no? Go colorful in your sofa I would say.
I love books and naturally, I love bookshelves. To have a bookshelf big enough to cover an entire wall with room enough to not just put books there but art, plants, ornaments and photos is just one of my life goals really. So inspirational to look at that every day.

I wasn’t too excited about the Kenzo/H&M collaboration to be honest. It was nothing wrong with it, it just wasn’t a lot of pieces that made my heart take an extra beat. Except for one thing; The silk pyjama trousers! Imagine my joy when I realized that the were minus 20 % off on Black Friday, and that they had my size left. I had to do it, a true hallelujah moment!
I kind of wish I had gotten the shirt (KLICK) that goes with for a complete pyjama look. Should I?
