Best of the week

Here comes my favourites this week! Clicks and thoughts.
 
Event 

 
This week I had the luck to be on a business trip in the same town and on the same day as the blogger Clara Lidström and Internet researcher Anna-Karin Nyberg were giving a lecture for bloggers regarding Digital Entrepreneurship. Such a good timing for once! I never attend any blog events and these are seldom created over here so I was happy to hear more about going from scratch to business. The blogger Linn Jung was an excellent moderator of the event with such a cool new haircut and, as Clara says, with a wonderful dialect.


Music
 
  
I listened to this song about world being in bloom.

 
Greenhouses
 

I was fascinated about Kristin Lagerqvists beautiful pictures again. This time the hot topic and dreams among bloggers seem to be greenhouses. A place for tomatoes, flowers, plants, decrations, books, berries and get togethers with dinners and music.

 
Royalties
 
 
As always when there are royal events ongoing I am interested in what everyone in the royal family wears. This time, on the King's 70th birthday, I think Princess Victoria won the style fight and was so stunning with a kind of break-the-rules dress. It is not very common with striped marine dresses in these connections, but I think it was really summery and beautiful, a happy choice and not so strict in the honour of the day. She also made a statement for durable and environmentally friendly fashion on the concert the day before, when she was wearing a special-sewn dress for this event from H&M's Conscious collection.

Flea finds
 
 
I read this week that the trend with flea market finds are over. Now it is expensive, rare objects from the auction houses that are in. Maybe this is a result of the bloggers try to be unique when there is a horde of readers copying and buying the same products all the time.

Phew, I get exhausted by all trend statements. My own rule is that you should buy all that is visually intresting and beautiful for you, no matter if it is common, high or low. Only in that way you stay happy and personal and have a unique style and mix. Trends are coming and going and it is not eco-friendly to change everything all the time according to what is in right now.
 
 
 Details
 
 
Beautiful new pink tray at Svenskt Tenn.
 
 
Mirror
 
  
I am longing for a golden mirror...

 
Dark walls
 
 
...admiring dark walls...

 
Art
 
 
...and wishing me a table easel.

 
 Clothes
 
 
Cereal has made beautiful pictures for Filippa K about garment care.

 
Summer details

H&M has launched some summery details.
 

Place
 
Are you afraid of heights? If so, look at this Pinterest picture. I discussed it with my Norwegian colleague this week and it is totally unbelievable to me how anyone can be doing this?
 
Flower vases  
 
Have you also noticed that it sometimes can be hard to clean flower vases? Some covering remains and the glass is not crystal-clear anymore. I will try out if one of these tips help!

With this I am wishing you a splendid beginning of May month! The sun is shining here!

Marble box


This weekend has rushed by in high-speed. However, I managed to take a few pictures when the sun was up. This is my new little marble box from Broste Copenhagen. It is so nice and has a smooth surface. I haven't yet decided if it is the perfect box for sea salt, decoration or jewellery. This is in fact the first marble piece I've ever got. Better late than never! A good gift idea for anyone!

Maximized compact living

 
When seeing this apartment you cannot really believe it is only 23 m². It is maximum interior in limited space at Krukmakargatan 38 in Stockholm. All seems so light and airy with the soft and pale wall colours. I am definitely starting to soften for coloured walls, even if I think they would put too much restrictions otherwise on everything you would like to have and buy for your home. But they are nice to look at and feel so fresh. They are quite perfect for a compact living like this as well when you need to select your interior details carefully and just keep the dear and classic ones in one or two colours only. Note also that you cannot move here unless you only buy black and white clothes..;)

When it comes to the furniture in these pictures I like the rattan chair in the corner and have even thought about this one sometimes for my balcony. I am also on the lookout for a new coffee table and I immediately noticed this cool one, even if I think it might be a retro piece which is hard to find.

Ceramic ware by Broste Copenhagen


A rainy, grey day by me! I am doing housework with invisible progress and boosting my health with vitamins. I am so fond of fruit and always buy so much that my bowls are getting too small and the fruit is every now and then rolling across the table. So this ceramic plate from Broste Copenhagen that I got recently is indeed very good to use for fruit. It is huge and that is exactly what I need! Actually it could be used for cooking as well but for now it will serve as a nice fruit plate.

I was so happy to find the Danish magazine Bo Bedre in the stores here again, after a pause of probably ten years and a suffering equally long! I have missed it so much so it was a welcomed surprise!
 
Happy evening!

Colouring book euphoria


I haven't had time to try the adult colouring book trend yet, until today. I just had to document it with my phone, because this is how far I got before I realized that this is crazily fun! You had me at two colours...! Real colouring book euphoria here! New coloured pens needs to be bought, though. The ones I had did not match all colour shades I imagined. Wisely I started of course with the nicest page... :) It is not as easy as you might think. A lot of hard decisions to make. :) Have you tried? You should. At the same time I noticed that I somehow peacefully started to process visual impressions from the previous days. Maybe it opened up some unconscious parts of my brain...

This page is from Liselotte Watkins colouring book Watkins Värld. I will from now on keep my eyes wide open for more colouring books to stock up with! The more intricate, the better! It will of course take some time until this book is filled, but I am eager as you see!

At Ålandsgatan | Gothenburg


 
I came across some really nice pictures from the real estate agency Entrance Mäkleri today. Such a good styling! I do not say I want a canopy (although it would be good during summertime here against the mosquitos) but the bedroom pictures are nice to look at indeed. It is such a long time since I found something nice and interesting at Hemnet so I decided to share a very long picture cavalcade of this apartment with you. Enjoy & happy Friday!
 
The apartment is located at Ålandsgatan in Gothenburg, Sweden.
