"A smoked-oak staircase suspended from steel poles joins a flight of 
tapered terrazzosteps in this Copenhagen apartment"

Jac Studios has completed the renovation of the Sturlasgade apartment and performed
their assignement to create a brighter and more open interior...

Love the amazing light, the windows and the beautiful lines and plateaus of
 the stunning staircase at this photo...  It made me think of all the beautiful and 
inspiring One Pic Wednesdays shared by Em on her blog a few years go...
this one pic would fit perfectly dont you think so!

Light and spacious with brown, beige and natural details

One of my favorite apartments  that I admired during the weekend is

Just loved the stylish furniture, the perfectly styled cabinet on the wall, 
The nice prints, the lovely children's room, the simple accessories and especially the 
wooden coat racks in the bedrooms that we see more and more lately.

The beautiful monochrome tones mixed with the 
brown, terra, beige and natural details and all the beautiful stylish details
 created a cozy and warm autumn atmosphere
Just perfect inspiration to start this rainy Monday and the new week 
Wish you all a happy one!


friday inspiration - apartmentlove

My rainy friday morning started with the discovery of this stunning apartment 
while visiting some of my fav Swedish brokerage sites

 I was attracted by the harmonious atmosphere 
 created by the mix of warm natural tones, the beautiful design classics, 
the stunning artworks , stylish accessories and the use of fresh greens

Just another perfect exemple on how to give a small apartment a
spatial look, don't you think so?

lamplove - W171 Alma lamp

A few monts ago, when I saw them them the first time,  I really fell for this 
beautiful perfectly composed lamp that I see more and more 
on my IG timeline lately. 

The Wästberg w171 Alma lamp, designed by Tham & Videgård , 
was originally created for a new co-working creative facility project  Alma in
Stockholm and I was attracted immediately by the shape of the lamp 
which is based on a rotated sine wave, where light and shadow create a readily
 recognizable character

The lamp is available in two different white shades: Signal white and Grey white and
according the designers the soft and reduced shape creates a cozy atmosphere that 
provides a sculptural feeling, even in daylight, when it satins matte 
the surface and the colors on the surface appear.

Åkerlundska Villan - a dreamproject

My week could start better than with the latest interior project of Lotta Agaton
Lotta has developed the total interior concepts, kitchens and bathrooms for the 
Akerlundska Villan project and I cant stop admiring the photos
 made by Pia Ulin on the blog of Lotta. It looks so pretty!

The Akerlundska Villan is a 1800 th century beautiful castle that is transforming to 
nine Apartments by BTH bostad.  Ruxandra Halleröd at Christian Halleröd Design and
 Helene Amundsen has done the architecture

At the new issue of Residence magazine.se we will be able to read all about 
the stunning dream project and admire more photos... 
Can't wait to have my own copy!



 "At first glance, Eva Lange's sculptures may seem deceptive. Their distinctive lines and white surfaces indicate abstraction and an uncompromising relationship to form. But Eva Lange’s art is not abstract, nor does it intend to mislead the viewer. These sculptures are figurative in the strictest sense of the word – and sincere. It is perhaps a different kind of representational art than the one we are most familiar with; a kind of figuration that goes beyond external characteristics, and keeps on searching, inward, in the hope of capturing that which is the essence of the poppy, the tree, the rain, and the heart."

It still takes a while but now that the days are slowly getting shorter, 
first signs of autumn are arriving and while my mailbox is filled with the
latest Christmas items and ideas,  I must admit I already caught myself 
thinking about wishlists!

As I have said many times, IG is a great source of inspiration for me, 
so when I saw the amazing sculptures and the beautiful book - designed by Dry -
about the work of Eva Lang (Member of the Royal Academy of Arts)   at the
IG-feed of Dry studios today,  I started to fill my wishlist immediately... 

The book consists of such beautiful pictures of her amazing work,
 shows the story behind about her creative work and looks so inspiration...  
A real musthave in my opion when you love art and sculptures! 

You can find all about the book Skulptur here and discover her work as an 
ever-broadening investigation into the nature of things...

                                                                                                                                            photos via Dry studios with thanks!


Annaleenas private home

 After my summer break I couldn't start better than with this amazing home!

Probably you have already seen it at the blogosphere but for me the home of 
talented Swedish stylist Annaleena Leino-Karlsson is one of the most
 inspiring homes that I have seen lately... I really enjoyed the feature and the interview in
 Residence Magazine with Annnaleena when I was in France... 

Beautiful warm minimalism as I love it so much, 
You can find it here!


Looking forward to see you again when I'm back in September...  
       Have a wonderful Summer :-)  

You can find me on instagram during my summerbreak in France... feel free to meet me there!


New Fav - BEOplay A1

Sundaymornings are for slow starts dont you think so?
This morning - my first vacayweekend -  started with lots of coffee,
 listening to some good music and ofcourse with the 
best company...  my family :-) 

And it really was a fun day... A little while ago I was looking for a
 new portable bluetooth speaker to take with us  during our vacation to France, 
 or for cosy evenings with family and friends in the garden or just to use indoors. 
 I ended up at the products of B&O at online warehouse fonQ.  

Yesterday we finally received the Beoplay A1 Bluetooth speaker (designed by 
Danish designer Cecilie Mantz) and from that moment our home was filled 
with the most varied music because the speaker has accompanied the whole family during
 the day. Everybody wanted to try it - and keep it ;-) - and with its compact design
 (only Ø 13.3 cm) the Beoplay fits easily in the palm of your hand, but it's even easier to
 carry or hang it with the leather strap.  

And I must say, even tough the speaker is very small,  behind the aluminum case
 go two speakers, good for a peak power of 280 Watts and in addition, the stunning 
True360 sound is spread in all directions. So it doesn't matter where you place 
the speaker, the sound always reach your destination in a perfect way!

Beoplay A1 is designed to take its fair share of bumps and scrapes while still 
protecting the delicate drivers and electronics inside. The more it travels with you,
 the more stories it can tell,  they say at B&O, So it's just perfect to join us this week when 
we will travel to our sunny vacay destination at the South of France... 
Can't wait to try it out there and enjoy the cosy moments!

NÆRVÆR - ceramics

Nærvær is perfectly located wine bar and restaurant with a 
beautiful view at  Copenhagen’s old city center,  is one of 
the latest stunning project by Norm Architects

In addition to designing the interior,  Norm (in collaboration with
Danish ceramicist Maj-Brit Würtz and the Head Chef at Nærvær, Yves Le Lay) 
also created a unique collection of handmade pottery to compliment the culinary 
experience and architecture of this new spot and I just love the warm imperfect
 look of the rustic plates, vases, cups and bowls in different earth tones. 
Especially in contrast with the industrial atmosphere of the restaurant it looks
stunning don't you think so? 

Definitely a beautiful inspiring place to visit when in Copenhagen!
