Egen stadsvilla mitt i Stockholm


Granithusen sett från den ljuva baksidan med uteplats och alla glaspartier.




I Norra Djurgårdsstaden på Bobergsgatan som fått sitt namn av Gustaf Ferdinand Boberg, en av Sveriges främsta arkitekter och formgivare genom tiderna som ritat bland annat NK huset som stod klart 1915, skall det nu byggas stadsvillor. 

Min helt nya uppdragsgivare Åke Sundvall visar mig prov på de smartaste egenskaper en chef skall ha för att få ut den bästa möjliga prestation från sin konsult varande :  

Lyhördhet och erfarenhet. 

Att lyssna till den nytillträdda ambassadören/konsulten (läs Jimmy)när han först uttalar sig om som det som han omedelbart visade stor nyfikenhet för vilket var det nu pågående townhouse/stadsvilla projektet: Granithusen

Mitt bord fyllt med all info om Granithusen och brunch denna adventssöndag gjord på surdegstoast på råg, stekta med ägg och ovanpå buffalo mozzarella och rumstempererad färsk tomat. Kaffe och som efterrätt en mogen banan serverat på nya bordskivan i Silestone med den mönstrade  varma brunröda ytan i min Studio på Södermalm. 



Här tronar jag i min Studio denna bloggsöndag tillika andra advent med brunch och alla nödvändiga ritningar och beskrivningar för att kunna skriva om Granithusen. 

Gillar verkligen att fördjupa mig i det jag skriver om och ha tid för att sätta mig in i det fullständigt.   




Granithusen 


Grantithusen är de 2 första townhouses/stadsvillor med friköpt tomt(!) som byggs i Stockholms innerstad sedan 1929.

 De två bostäderna, som kommer ligga i kvarteret Brofästet, är fullt 2019 uppdaterade och den första typen av townhouses/stadsvillor som byggs på 90 år på i Stockholm på åtråvärda Djurgården, som erbjuder trevåningshus med källarplan, uteplats, takterass och privat parkeringsplats så som det vore i London, Paris eller Amsterdam.   








De två Granithusen med friköpt tomt som uppförs på Bobergsgatan är uppbyggda runt ett atrium där även kök och trappa är placerade.

 Utformat Granithusen har Anderssson Arfwedson Arkitekter som varit måna om att i stadsvillornas materialval ta stor hänsyn till den omkringliggande miljön med dess industriella känsla. 

Fasaderna mot Bobergsgatan är i svensk granit. Den ena i grå bohusgranit, den andra kontrasterande i rödaktig granit från Vånga i  Skåne.   


Kök med ljusinsläpp i Granithusen på Djurgården



Köket är skräddarsytt för projektet med köksö och bänkytor i Carrara-marmor och snickerier i ask. 


Carrara klätt badrum



Badrummen är även de klädda i Carrara-marmor med inbyggt badkar och överljus/ljusinsläpp. 



Vardagsrum inredda i Granithusen





Sovrum i Granithusen på Djurgården

Inredningen i Granithusen beskrivs av Arkitekterna som sober och tidlös och perfekt för dig som vill ha utrymme att sätta en personlig prägel på hemmet.  

Blir det bättre än så undrar jag och instämmer med Ola Andersson och Herman  Arfwedson som för Åke Sundvall ritat de första stadsvillorna på över 90 år i Stockholm.  

Takterass på Granithusen


Att man sen till sommar har både uteplats och balkonger är så underbart att jag inte kan vänta med att besöka det som nu är en byggarbetsplats, men som kommer kunna  se ut så här när det är klart. 

Japp, kommer visa här hur det går med Granithusen under tiden bygget fortskrider. 


Takterass på Granithusen


Om du är lika nyfiken på hur Granithusen kommer att se ut som jag mer exakt ner till vartenda materialval så surfa in på Åke Sundvall så kan de sända dig fullständiga planritningar & beskrivningar av de närapå 200 kvm bostad per fyra våningars Granithus x 2.  








Det skall bli fantastiskt kul att följa bygget av Granithusen som skall stå klara nästa år. Du vet att du hittar allt du behöver här hos mig. Fråga gärna mig om det är något du undrar över 


Mediarummet i Granithusen så som arkitekterna ser det. Vad skulle du ha här...en syateljé? Yoga studio ? Möjligheterna är så många som du kan komma på....




Du som vill ha en egen stadsvilla mitt i Sthlm. Stay in touch.

What is art Maria Boström?





We reach the building that used to host the Architect school in Stockholm. As we make our way inside the large industrial room divided into two floors with the major part open with a ceiling height of over 8 meters we immediatly see the well lit art on the walls. 

As we make our way for a close up we notice this is not paintings as Maria Boström´s last exhibit. Its carpets. Maria´s paintings has been printed on carpets that are hung on the walls. All but one. 

At the bottom of this post you will experience my long time friend Rafi Sady´s live performance on the one carpet that is laid on the floor. 

We start looking for Maria. Check the videos to see our hunt for the artist. 






                                        



We have brought a opening present for Marias vernissage just wrapped with sisal string holding my 5 mini statuetts and candleholders for Jimsch





Going upstairs to see more of the exhibit and if we can find my friend, the artist Maria Boström and congratulate her on her vernissage opening. 


                                            


This is the most excited I have ever been over carpets. Maria´s way of making carpets into art or art into carpets creates a whole new category of its own. 





Follow Maria Boström on Instagram for her updated artful feed @mbosarts


Here is the artist  : 




Dancing on the one carpet laid on the floor wearing his own knit design is Rafi Sady. This combo is art  to me. See for yourself. 

What do you think?





Maria painted and had her art interpreted to carpets by the help of Moooi Stockholm and the new way of printing on textile that made Maria´s art into premium design carpets.




The painting by Maria Boström called Dancing Shiva made into carpet will be sold via Moooi Sthlm

Lastly I asked Maria what is art? 
Her answer came fast : 

Being in touch with the divine.

Glamping by Jimsch



Photo by Anette Floss


When Annika Wijkström at Studio Sankt Paul calls and says : Jimmy let's do something in the backyard for Fashion Week/Pressveckan I just say Yeah, let's go!

So we decided to go glamping in the backyard. The glamorous cousin to camping is so Jimsch and with the right type of tent from Friluftsvaror we nailed it. 

See how we started and what the tent looks like 3 floors up looking down in the middle of the city (scroll down)in the backyard at Kaptensgatan 6 at Östermalm.  





This is how cosy we can make it in a tent with all Jimsch + the gorgeous painting from Anette Floss. The 3 meter high center pole makes for a more luxurious feel & attractive atmosphere. 


Photo taken by Anette Floss who also painted the gorgeous painting that collected all the colors we love&need. 


This is how it started...


When you open the meter long tent bag from Friluftsvaror




This is what you see when you open up the bag... I thought: 
-OMG! I will never make this work....



When the tent was all folded out it meassures 6 meter in diameter. 













Bamboo and metall lanterns as well as carpets and all textiles from Jimsch that you now can shop online easily at Jimmy Schönning HOME



All new and still only a first sample is what this new mix of animals we first called Miss G. 

So many good name suggestions came from all the fine press&sales visitors. She is now named Miss G Octo Phant. 

She (Miss G Octo Phant)  is made out of wedlock so to speak. Interstil that has been the producer for Jimsch will not in the future be the only receiver of the design of Jimmy Schönning HEM that is the core of Jimsch. 

This whole Glamping production was created only with Jimmy Schönning HEM. No support from Interstil needed at all. We are firm believers in SoMe info & marketing and grounded and agreed that without a marketing plan no things will ever sell themselves for any brand how ever great they may be. 


 



Dice tea light holder next to a classic farm light that we love. Will look into designing our own version of this  clever beauty. 



All Jimsch combined with the painting of Anette Floss






This is what it looked like from above!

I could so stay here! Thank you dear  magic gang of women that rule at Studio Sankt Paul and make this world better. See us on our Glamping by Jimsch tour 2019

Black Elk Ghost Dance and and elephants I can´t forget


My friend Bengt Braskered said come with me and see Stina Folkebrants exhibit at Dieselverkstaden. 

So we did. We arrived at Dieselverkstaden, which is a very cool building to begin with. If you as me like the industrial type of interiors of a old factory this truly is a inspiring place.

Bengt introduced me to Stina, to whom I took a liking to at once. Stina explained how she read this book by an American Indian Chief called Black Elk Ghost Dance. 

The book and with it Stinas feeling started a movement that ended with her painting life-size  animals. 

Yes the elephants and the horses are all life size. All animals, and they are many, are all life-size.  






This is what Stina says about herself :

“Jag heter Stina Folkebrant och är född och uppvuxen i Borås. Jag har målat sen barnsben, arbetat som dekormålare på teatrar, gått konstskolor och målat väggmålningar på beställning. Det är först nu i år som jag börjat måla på duk och då väljer jag ett stort format där jag trivs allra bäst. Det passar mitt sätt att måla med större penseldrag där hela processen blir mer fysisk bland annat genom att jag måste klättra på stegar för att nå hela duken.
När jag var liten ville jag bli konstnär eller veterinär. Jag arbetade på Borås Djurpark under min tonårsperiod där jag både skötte om djuren och tecknade av dem.”












Dieselverkstaden



 As I said : and elephants I can´t forget.

Cooking with pumpkins






When I year 1984 spent my first Halloween in the south meaning, Cary in North Carolina in the US, I found the whole trick or treat thing a bit much as I woke up the day after Halloween seeing our neighbor´s house covered in wet toilet paper....

No I´m not kidding, when kids think they do not get what they should from a family in form of candy or money....this does happen. 

But....what i did find memorable was all the wonderful pumpkin recipes and the food culture that in season makes the most of the local produce that pumpkins truly are in the states. 


2. CHIPOTLE PUMPKIN SOUP WITH CRISPY CHORIZO AND CARAMELIZED APPLES



The fall decoration with pumpkins of all kinds and the food that you can create is such a favorite and stands out from the rest of the year in my opinion. 

I found these recipes from where I look to find new inspiration for gardening normally, and first fell for the jaw dropping photos. So not only great gardening but also recipes when you get the newsletter at GardenDesign.com




3. CHOCOLATE COVERED ROASTED PUMPKIN SEED TURTLE CLUSTERS




Food blogger Thieghan Gerard of Half Baked Harvest shares some mouthwatering pumpkin dishes to add to your repertoire. 




 4. NUTTY WILD RICE AND SHREDDED BRUSSELS SPROUTS STUFFED MINI PUMPKINS





We start from the top of the page with: 







Since I love to cook and to eat (!) I will cook at least two of these pumpkin filled recipes this weekend. 
Wising you a wonderful weekend filled with tasty pumpkin based food, deserts and deco. 

STAY IN TOUCH!

Margiela - the Hermès years at Artipelag











Martin Margiela was appointed by Jean-Louis Dumas, then CEO of Hermès, as artistic director of the Parisian fashion house creating the women's ready-to-wear collections between 1997-2003. This collaboration turned out to be one of the most exciting in fashion history (which most did not see at the time) and it is now presented in the exhibition Margiela, The Hermès Years at the state of the arts exhibition center Artipelag 
situated a short boat, buss or taxi ride from Stockholm city center. 








Entering the Margiela exhibition the two different doors take you to the two dimensions of the House of Margiela with the white boxes and the Parisian House of Hermès naturally represented by the orange boxes clearly and simply telling how it was a bold choice of Dumas to appoint the avantgarde deconstructionist that Martin Margiela was and is. 



Standing on the desk making a clear statement the Margiela way.


The Martin Margiela way of deconstructing a turtleneck into a 4 piece garment inviting the wearer to co-design the flexible look giving many options possible to personal interpretation. 








The attention to detail in the exhibit is remarkable. 


Feminine, fragile and macho eclectic all at once. 

The photos accompanying the Margiela exhibition is zooming in on the designdetails in the best possible way and adds a higher level of understanding of the bold details like these shoes covered in packing tape. 





The supreme quality materials along with the no button, no jewelry, clean cut shapes and plain styling elevates the Hermés fashion created by Martin Margiela.  





Just adore the fact that Martin Margiela designed for fully grown women. 

The youngest model in this exhibit is 40 years old which is representativ for the strategy of how the fashion for Margiela was shown and for whom he designed for Hermés during the years he was head designer for the women's pret-a-porter collections. 








Being a avant-garde hero does not in any way hold  Martin Margiela back from letting the 1700´s historic garments inspire his deconstructed contemporary fashion sense. The contemporary side bags being a user friendly storage garment instead of just giving the large skirt the right lift as in the 1700´s. 

















Margiela enjoys dressing  women in comfortable  clothes in genuine materials combined with the classic art of tailoring. 













Maison Margiela at Artipelag


 A Margiela type of reuse long before it was fashionable for the rest of the world.


Margiela, the Hermès Years was originally created by Kaat Debo and Martin Margiela for the MoMu - the museum of modern art in Antwerp 2017.









To get the right random worn&wonderful type of knit for this clash look of exclusive cashmere fibers made into a worn statement look long before it caught on and made into a international fashion statement, Margiela asked his mother to do the prototype after failing to have it produced professionally. The sweater to the left is artistically created from a bunch of army socks. 





The exhibit is overall so well planned, designed and well lit. Full of many details like this seat that i just love and that is so Maison Margiela.  Margiela´s objects collection has had furniture and decoration through the years. 




Finding so may inspirational objects and material in this one exhibit that I do recommend highly seeing it before it closes the 10th of March 2019. 

Margiela - the Hermès years will put Artipelag on the world map as a Kunsthalle/Art Gallery to be reckoned with in the future which we need to thank Cay Bond for making the connections for it to be possible to create this astonishing exhibition imported successfully by artistic director Bo Nilsson and the governing owners of Artipelag.
