Our children's gorilla

The swedish design fair Formex started today. The theme for this fair is Celebrating traditions. Most of all I liked the new area Young designer's lounge with young unestablished designers (more images to come). The Formex Formidable award went this year to the company Our children's gorilla for their doll house A-frame. The original a-frame house was designed as a leisure time house by the architect Andrew Geller.

Dolce & Gabbana ad campaign

I love the aristocratic set, the early-seventies feeling, the tweedy midi-skirts, gilets, country-check shirts and printed silk scarves. Dolce & Gabbana

K and I moved to a new apartment in Stockholm in May and were planning to spend the summer renovating and decorating. That didn't happen... Instead, we travelled to friends in Sweden and abroad and enjoyed long lazy days in the sun. Back in Stockholm again I have started to take on some really fun home projects; painting the walls of my studio, planting new flowers in the flower box and building a daybed in the alcove of our livingroom.

Cushions by Louise Body

Louise Body received a lot of attention for her wallpaper Erotica from 2007 with Moulin Rouge like girls in various states of undress. In her webshop she also presents printed and hand painted cushions. Vintage fabric and buttons are used on the back along with a small silver embroidered signature.

Marni a/w o8

Marni's Consuelo Castiglioni mixes materials, colours and shapes in an unexpected way in the autumn/winter collection. The result just makes me happy.

Jeff Koons at the Metropolitan

I've just spent a great week in one of my favourites cities: New York. One on the highlights of the trip was spending a late afternoon with a Martini in my hand looking at the Jeff Koons exhibition in the Roof Garden of the Metropolitan Museum.

Morning in Stockholm

I'm back in Stockholm. Now it's raining but this morning when I was walking to work it was sunny. Stockholm is so beautiful! I took some photos with my mobile.
