Ulricehamns Tapetfabrik Swedish Wallpaper


Wallpaper by Studio Lisa Bengtsson printed at Ulricehamns Tapetfabrik


For me Ulricehamn is a city I 
pass on my way to my family 
on the west coast.  

Ulricehamn Wallpaper/Tapet Factory/Fabrik 

Ulricehamn was about to be another closed factory when Anna &Thomas you see below, 
took over and restarted this 
proud creative institution. 





I was invited to a wallpaper evening at Björklund&Wingquist
at Kungsholmstorg
Stockholm where I've been going to check, touch and feel materials for the past 20+ years and were you meet true knowledge about wall coverings in general and where I met Anna & Thomas from the 
Ulricehamns Wallpaper Factory. 


Below you see Anna&Thomas 
when talking about when they took over  
Ulricehamns Wallpaper Factory/Ulricehamns Tapetfabrik 




Presenting their collaboration with Ulricehamns Wallpaper Factory tonight are Långelid/von Brömssen



Hare in hiding by Von Brömssen

Below you see Emma von Brömssen 
and Daniel Långelid that together form 
Their styles and design are quite different from each other so together with their color identity they create an ecclectic unit.

A peep to the past 

A peep to the past is what Daniel Långelid called these perforated peep holes that partly show the illustrated works of Suecia antiqua et hodierna created by Erik Dahlberg in the end of the 1700´s. Through round holes you see parts of the classical work as if you were taking a peep to the past. 



Littlephant is the interior brand created by Camilla Lundsten. Above you see Camilla showing her Elle Award winning wallpaper at Björklund&Wingquist. 

The inspiration to the Aquatic wallpaper pattern you see below comes from the salty sea of the Mediterranean with the white sand and the fantastic creatures that live there. The pattern takes you on a trip from the Amalfi Coast in Italy to the French Riviera and breathes both soothing sea hues as well as elegant graphic rhythm.

The Greta Thunberg effect




 Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old Swedish youth climate activist, daughter of actor&operasinger couple Svante Thunberg & Malena Ernman, caught everyones attention at the 
United Nations Climate 
Action Summit (!) 

Monday the 23d of September 
Greta reminded her audience 
that she is, in fact, a child, one who would like 
a fair shot at at future

"This is all wrong, Thunberg told the representatives of 110 U.N member states. "I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to me for hope? How dare you? You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words" 


Could not agree more and I blame myself as much as the U.N. All adults should take responsibility and do all they can on a everyday basis. 

So what can we do? One of the major climate problems of our time is what we choose to eat. 

If you do not know how climate problematic the production and logistics of beef is to our planet then google now. 

What I feel I have put off on a personal everyday basis,  that I can do NOW that would make a difference is stop eating BEEF. 

No more cow meat on my plate from now on. 
I will learn more about what we can do in our everyday life to make a change for the better and take 
Climate Action now. 

TACK&FÖRLÅT GRETA

In may 2019, Thunberg was featured on the cover of TIME magazine, which  named her a "NEXT GENERATION LEADER" and noted that many see her as a role model. Thunberg and the school strike movement were also featured in a 30 min VICE documentary titled "Make the world GRETA again" Some media have described her impact as the 
"GRETA Thunberg EFFECT"

The Viking Museum in Stockholm

Giving more of the everyday of the Vikings where both men and women are part of, as of lately made into very reliable tv drama serie by the name Vikings on HBO making this an even more hot topic for all ages. 




I had not made it to Vikingaliv, the museum I had been told were devoted to telling the true story behind the myth of the Viking. 

So when the invite for The Viking Museum landed in my inbox, I made sure I could be there. 

Really enjoy the choice of showing both the men and the women of the Viking Age being 793..ish (since it´s being debated lately) -1066 AD a period in the history of the Scandinavians during which they expanded and built settlements throughout Europe and beyond. 


and when mom could join as well, we made to Djurgårdsvägen 47 
with Djurgårdsfärjan from Slussen.


Since Vikingaliv the museum was called 
The Viking Museum already,
 they decided to make it their new name. New name, new logo. 



 


A big thumbs up 
for the live performance of which this museum built. Weaving the wool to the sails is shown and you are invited to try with instructions.  

Can you imagine those big sails 
made in wool 
how when wet 
must have weighed tons. 

We are made aware of the everyday lifestyle of the real men and women of the Viking Age and that is really exciting. 






This describes 
all you get to experience at 
The Viking Museum


In the vivid exhibition you will meet the Vikings through movies, scenery, projections and sound effects as well as archaeological objects. Knowledgeable guides in Viking gear will answer all your questions and the many replicas let you explore life as a Viking with all your senses.  You will learn about the Viking raids, journeys and mastery in ship building as well as the everyday life at the farm. The Norse mythology is present everywhere and here myth meets truth.






The adventure ride Ragnfrid’s saga takes you along on a captivating journey through Viking age Europe. You will follow Harald and his crew on a dramatic quest for silver. The story told by an ageing Ragnfrid is built on historical characters and events and is recommended from 7 years.
Audioguide and adventure ride is available in English, Russian, Finnish, Italian, French, Spanish German, Chinese and Swedish.
In the exhibition, several guided tours are held daily in Swedish and English.





My beautiful mom is 70+ and I am 50+ and as you see nine year old Elton, son of  Beauty and Lifestyle journalist Jessica Berghult is having a great time 
sword fighting 
with a Viking!






Every story is told for all senses. 
Touch, sight, hearing and even smell and taste in the museum restaurant. 

You get a  
REAL 
feeling here. 







The artwork is outstanding.
