Borea is an airplane, no... it´s an outdoor collection by Piero Lissoni




 “Borea is an aeroplane. It is an aeroplane that has landed, a twenty first century aeroplane with a technological soul that perhaps dates back to another century. Borea is an aluminum collection, very modern, stackable, a genuine outdoor product that you can leave out in the rain

and nothing happens, but above all it looks like an aeroplane! It gives you the idea of this timeless furniture that the tradition of the twentieth century has moved into the new century.”


- Piero Lissoni

Color, textile and details update at Pe Na Areia, Ilha Grande 2021

Ilha Grande has just like Penedo at selfie sign with a
view where  MANY photos are taken everyday. Brasilians like to take photos! 


We are at Ilha Grande, the tropical island off the Costa Verde 
coast 2 hours drive from Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. 




In the Colors, Textile & Details update just done at Pe Na Areia  
a pure white table cloth greets you for café de manha/breakfast


My husband Marcello and I have an ongoing interior update with our company Jordan Schönning at Pe Na Areia.  
Pe Na Areia means feet in the sand and is a pousada/hotel and restaurant 
first line at the beach at 
Rua da Praia in Vila do Abraao, 
Ilha Grande. 


The bed is a sea of textiles and sets the feeling of the room.
The intention here is with textiles and pillows make the
bed more inviting and more useful as a sofa as well as a bed
as well ad contributing to the overall luxiourious sensation.  



Our Color, textile and details 
update for Pe Na Areia 
is the first part of a later 
larger renovation taking 
place after the summer season. 



Black handmade ceramic fruit bowl for Pe Na Areia.
Everyday fresh fruit and fresh fruit juice de jour is served for breakfast. 

WE LOVE FRUIT! 

Fernando in front of his home on the hillside of Ilha Grande. 

Pe Na Areia exists because Fernando 
was born at Ilha Grande 
As a son to the police officer 
that worked at the prison 
island that Ilha Grande was 
until year 2000. 


After working as a musician 
he decided to open hotel on 
the beach at Ilha Grande 
now over 20 years ago. 


The rest is 
Ilha Grande history. 




Working at Pe Na Areia this New Years Eve weekend we took 
swims in the ocean as often as possible and 
hung out under the Chapeu de sol trees in 
the shade for our lunch on the beach.
 I could get used to this way of working. 




The veranda at Pe Na Areia

An archive of paintings had accumulated 
over 20 years of artists 
staying at the hotel. 
Now the paintings of Ilha Grande 
decorate the gallery wall at Pe Na Areia. 




After breakfast the tables at the veranda get a linen mix table cloth 
and a leaf or flower in the new handmade ceramic vessels from Cunha. 




Its all about the sea at first at Ilha Grande until you se the amazing nature reserve as well and understand that you have to come back asap. 

Be sure to see more of Ilha Grande 
here and at my instagram @jimmyschonninghem



Love how fabric/textile stores look the same all over the world. 



To get the textile result we 
wanted at Pe Na Areia 
in the midst of a Pandemic, 
 we went textile shopping.  



Textile magic begins with finding the right fabric. 


Since the bed and windows are a sea of textile 
here is where you go to find the gold. 

If things were normal I would have gone to Sao Paulo 
where I would have found everything normally. 





So instead of ordering already made 
we are creating from scratch, 
due to so many producers being unable 
to deliver we design new 
bed and window textiles for Pe Na Areia 
to get the best result. 




Textile magic in the making. 



Fabric is woven magic. 






Fabric fascination. 


Our simple drawing explaining the new bed textiles needed. 



Our fabric choices for Pe Na Areia. 

Breakfast is served on the veranda but sometimes 
it nice to just have the morning coffee in your room. 
The handmade ceramics are part of the update at Pe Na Areia. 
Ceramics from Cunha only a couple of hours drive from 
Angra dos Reis which is one of the cities,
 where you take the boat to Ilha Grande. 


 



Thank you so much Fernando and Pe Na Areia. 
Thank you so much for choosing a unknown forigner like me and for 
believing Marcello when he recommended me for this job. 

IN JANUARY I WILL HOST AND INSTAGRAM 

Obrigado Fernando 
FELIZ ANO NOVO PE NA AREIA

SUN HAT TREE OR CHAPEU DE SOL AT ILHA GRANDE.

Christmas in Penedo,Brasil for the first time

Jazz Village at Pequena Suecia 

We started off Christmas the 24th 
at my husbands closest family.
On Christmas day during the brunch at 
Jazz Village Penedo I joined 
two singers a pianist and a percussionist 
to perform Sankta Lucia in Swedish, 
Italiano and Português. 


The last weekend of January Sanny Alves, 
Marlon Mouzer and I will premiere 
our all new trilingual 




This was our gift from the Horta of 
Casa da Ilha to my 
husbands family for Christmas.
 
Love getting and giving edible gifts 
and who can live without candels? 




This for me classic JS HEM Christmas 
home made as a styling job
 many moons ago that I have repeated every 
Christmas as a tradition is still a favorit,
 but 2021 I think it is time for 
a whole new or a totally 
recycled Christmas.

This new year 2021 
calls for all new methods. 



Never have I spent so much time 
tending a garden in December. 





 A little bit of Christmas 
feeling rubbed off on our house, 
but this year was not a big 
decorating feast. 
We had other things to tend to tis year. 




Merry Christmas  



This Christmas tree in my own home at the time, by
lake Uttran called Ensta Strand. 



2021 IS COMING 

Will be 10 years ago this December
 I shot my last episode of the DIY TV show
 Äntligen Hemma for 
TV4 produced by Meter Television. 

2011 12 23 I wrote in Swedish here on the blog

Nåt jag inte kommer att sakna är bögskämten från vart programledarmöte. Har aldrig arbetat på en så sexistisk arbetsplats.


Which means 
 I will not miss the jokes referring 
to my sexuality. 

I have never worked at 
such a sexist place. 


When the tabloids then wrote 
for example  
Expressen wrote 



The headline almost a decade ago for 
Expressen said that I 
attacked my colleagues due to a 
joke about me being gay. 


Since the TV SHOW Äntligen Hemma 
so unintelligently was taken off the air 
 due to the circumstances concerning the 
allegations of one white heteronormative 
sexist very short former carpenter called Martin. 

Why TV4 did not just terminate Martin Timell 
and then cast a strong female tv experienced 
DIY TV host and stayed on air is beyond brainless, 
and tells just how by the balls Martin Timell had TV4.

It all started with the Me too movement 
initiated by Lulu Carter on her Instagram. 

This is years later after I already had deemed 
Äntligen hemma as the most sexist work place.

Everyone in Äntligen Hemma knew who I meant. 





The veranda and terrace at Casa da Ilha 
in Penedo where we moved in July of 2020.


  




I am so much about candles. Now sellin the last of
 Lucerna lantern on jimmyschonnig.com




Today we are at home and preparing 
for going to Ilha Grande where I
 will start with the 
textile update at the beach hotel. 
 

Our new black stone ware hand made ceramics
 showing off our first ripe Chu Chu




When we were in Cunha to shop ceramics 
to a client Marcello 
surprised me with secretly checking 
on all I commented 
that we liked for us and 
got as a Christmas gift. 

LOVE! 






Come with me to my favorite 
Island on the Green coast, Ilha Grande.

I’m still dreaming of a white Christmas




Still love the song : I’m dreaming of a white Christmas  Though the author inteded  snow I went for all white with what I considered Christmas red accents. 

🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼

Creating content for the Swedish publishing industry as an interior stylist I wanted each Christmas to look different as a professional challenge  Through decades of different Christmas  designs  for interior publications and online magazines as well as tv productions, this eclectic x mas interior remained my personal favorite and has become my tradition to post for Christmas.  The former chapel in this building from 1879 was for years my favorite photo studio. Just look at the columns here by the entrance. The fire place here is created for the shoot & the fire  is digitally lit by the photographer @ingaprylar whith whom I did most work as a stylist. I am so thankful for being able to work with creating image scenography for this period before all publishing houses in Sweden stopped selling adverts , fired their editorial staff and stopped contracting free lancers like me. When all free lancers were forced to sign copy right contracts that cut all chance of possible profit I stopped producing image content for Swedish publications all together and sold only to international agents like Danish, Copenhagen based  #houseofpictures

🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼

Very thankful for being able to be a part of a exeptionally creative time in Stockholm producing image content as a stylist in a time of prosperity. There is today in Sweden only 1 interior magazine that is truly sucessful  that still sell copies and have both paper publications and online platforms. Do you know which one it is? 

🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼🎅🏼

There is a new age coming. The age of #aquarius forces us to change. This Christmas is the beginning. We all need to change and care for this planet. Together. There is no other way


 🎅🏼 God 🎄Jul vänner ⭐️

Even my pussy is gay


       
                                             

Or not? 

The point is that every kitten or child 
have the right to make up their own mind. 

Just saw The Prom which is @promnetflix based on the musical with music by Matthew Sklar, lyrics by Chad Beg uelin, and a book by Bob Martin and Beguelin, based on an original concept by Jack Viertel.

The musical follows four Broadway actors lamenting their days of fame, as they travel to the conservative town of Edgewater, Indiana, to help a lesbian student banned from bringing her girlfriend to high school prom.

Are you aware of that it is a human right to choose with whom you want to live your life or go with whom you want to go to the prom with for that matter? 

The Prom on Netflix premiéred 
the 12th of December 2020

Gay rights are human rights as well as #lgbtq  rights. 

Do you grasp how important it 
is for us as parents
to be open to what your child 
want even if you are heterosexual? 

If you only knew how common it is all over the world and more suprisingly how it still happens in Sweden that children are rejected by their own parents. 

Preconcieved opinoins that is not based on actual experience is prejudice. 

Do you support human rights?
