Anthropology telling human stories. 


Love the old factory turned into store, would not mind having a store like this myself.

One of the reasons for loving this store is this amazing building.  A converted factory right on Kings Rd, London. 
 This is favorite interior &clothes store called Anthropology that you find in many countries and online as well naturally. Anthropology off course is the study of humans and their societies in the past and present...and one of my fav interior stores in London. 
What do you think ?

An eclectic mix. 

They make unique pieces. 

This pouf/table from carpets is to my liking.

Looks like my writing books from school. Stay within the lines!

  Gold medal Garden Garage at Chelsea Flower Show 2016. This pic from RHS Chelsea Flower show. The rest shot by me.

Room for a car or a long table for lots of guests to have dinner at.



Stairs that lead up to the terrace above the garage. See also the open room under neath on the side of the garage with a roof.



Moss covered wall to die for with a copper opening.

My favorite at Chelsea Flower show was a gold medal winner Garden Garage. Or a Garage Garden : 


Designed by  Kazuyuki Ishihara



This is a garden for an antique car enthusiast, with the planting designed to complement the vehicle.
Planned as a two-tier structure, the ground floor offers essential off-road space for a car, but also a place for the family to relax. The roof-top tier is planted as a garden. The garden fuses its form with that of the vehicle, though it can be enjoyed as much by households without a car.

The moss together with the Japanese maple does it for me.

A collage to try to get a whole look of the green Garden Garage.

A true favorite at the Chelsea Flower show

After a week with a trip to London and visiting the Chelsea Flower Show and last but not least my concert today back home in Lund, I can just admit that there will be no post about London this weekend. I will have to come back on that. Hopefully tomorrow. Must say that I am so happy for being fortunate enoughto sing with Bobbe Big Band today, the swing music I love. A dream come true. THANK YOU!

R H S | chelsea flower show




The ticket has arrived and tomorrow for the first time ever I am going to go to Chelsea Flower Show in London. Even the ticket is in bloom! For me plants&greens are the way to make indoors and outdoors come alive. 

So happy to finally get to see the best of the best green rooms of the world in one place and with the company of my mother who is Madame Garden herself, what a treat.
Will tell you all about it when the weekend comes.

B A T H | room milan 2016


A Milan back yard, one of the many that look so incredible, to get you in to the right Milan mood. Come along with me!

Salvatori

Just next to Boffi in the cosy Brera district in Milano, Salvatori is showing these big slabs of marble bathroom sinks that I just go for completely. Off course it was during the Milano Design weeks in April. Since marble now is everywhere why not let it take over the bathroom?









Bathroom, Boffi.
The bathroom trend is including new material feel,like copper as splash back instead of tiles and the wood looking tiles (tromp l´oeil effect)  and in this bathroom it looks attractive in my opinion. 

The metal wire lamp is also seen in many versions in living rooms as well as in bathrooms.
The bathroom trend is going toward a more living room type of interior sense. The trend is to bring in more typical living room objects and not only water proof perfect pieces to brake up the sterile feeling a tile covered room can get. 

/Jimmy 

A longing for more of living room type of lighting to make the bathroom more like the living room, this seen at Boffi Bath


Boffi marble/metal sink that I adore.

Small,smart and wall hung, Varenna

Diesel/Successful living black marble tabletop/sink. Copper splash back.

Successful Living from Diesel bath with a big green influence

Bathroom with a living room feel. The dream bathroom that has all the space you always wanted.

To enter

To enjoy

To relax

To grow

A nursery garden/plantskola like nothing I have ever seen anywhere else. 

Not only does this favorite place of mine always have all the plants I would ever need for my garden, but they supply so much inspo that I feel like I have traveled to the most amazing  secret gardens of the worlds and been filled with ideas. 

Here rooms are created. Green rooms. Outside/inside or inbetween does not matter. A space is created for different purposes or needs. Plants are used for this creation along with anything else that the green room needs. For me this is an art form. 

In other words : I adore this place. Since it is close to me I can go frequently. See it for you self at www.plantis.org 
and when you can. Go there!

Last year it looked like this here at my fav spot. See my blog post from last year.


To reflect

C P H | showroom AW 16/17





Copenhagen harbour side


Today I´m on my way up to Stockholm for  meetings and  interior work for two private homes, but Saturday I went to Copenhagen. I stopped by in the new part of town by the harbour that is growing larger every time I go by.




Invited to see the AW 16-17 collection and news for Danish interior brand Lene Bjerrre by the Swedish agent Mias Home in a old factory turned show rooms and offices that I really fell for.




Coming in to the show room I pass an exciting art exhibition - great art and no names on who created it. Do you know who did this piece?




Paul Smith is giving you a colorful ride




So I enter in to the world of Lene Bjerre and just want to sit down in the simple sofa installation. Loving the reused wall idea - can you see what it is ? 

Showing you here what I think stand out and that are my favorites among this large collection and that I see as a new style interpretation at this brand.




These black metal cabinets/drawers on wheels are a favorite.


Cool style: On wheels in two levels, simplicity I like.

Zink metal bath style I go for.
Untidy and lovely. Grey tones with soft whites and a touch of lavender accompanied by a basic black makes for a wintry feel along with fur&fake fur.



THANK YOU for a fun&inspiring day at the showroom
