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.

This is what it looked like from above!

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.”

 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.
