Brukstorget 5 favorites Varberg


In the red industrial brick buildings that existed here in Varberg before my grandfather came here now houses 5 of my Varberg favorites. 

BLOMSTERBAREN is a flowershop with both fresh & dried flowers, plants & interiors. Picture above & below. 





The Varberg profile Kristin Krickelin Lagerquist inspiring boutiqe space serves tea & offers lovely linen clothing along with an ecletic mix of interiors and deco. Get her book Livskraft righ here as well. 



Första gången jag kom till KLco blev jag bjuden på Honeybush tea när jag klev innanför dörren. Butiken håller även workshops & bjuder på härlig inspiration. 



Vacker linneklädkollektion - är det något Kristin Krickelin Lagerqvist inte bemästrar? 


Truly inspiring space - KLco 


K.L is the name of the linen clothing line from Kristin Lagerqvist called Krickelin on Instagram. 


VINTAGEBYRÅN retro & vintage interiors - I just fell for the rocker right away & as I made my way in I knew I will find lots of interior gems here for my own clients needing an eclectic mix at home. Since me and my husband Marcello Jordan have started up our Architect & Interior Studio in Varberg I know I will have to visit Vintagebyrån regularly. 

Grejen med bra vintage & retro - antik & second hand är att hålla koll på vad som kommer in. Vintagebyrån i Varberg här på Brukstorget hittar jag även på nätet & alla ställen har även instagram under samma namn.  


Villhöver dessa vackra skärbrädor! Visst är de ljuvliga - finns hos Butik Garaget på Brukstorget i Varberg. 


Rebecca Charlez is a Swedish artist with a thing for texture. See her Insta for more of her sculptural wall art. 

Vad du ser nedan är en typ av skulptural tavla som är del av Rebeccas läckra alster. Hon stod & arbetade i sin studio på Brukstorget sist jag var där. På Studio Pompone säljer de hennes skulpturala väggkonst. 


So when you come to Varberg you got to visit Brukstorget at Birger Svenssons väg 16 E-F 
Online you find all my favorites here
www.brukstorget.se or at Instagram with the same name.

The balance between Sweden and Brazil


It’s all about balance, right? 2 years in Brazil the 21 of April 2022. 

During the pandemic my husband and I moved to Penedo. The initial plan was to stay for 1 year. 

It just became two years this April that we have lived here in Penedo, Brazil. 

Now it’s time to finish up our projects here and go back to Sweden. 



Our first project that brought us here to Pendo, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil was the Maple Bear School building. 

My husband Marcello Jordan was the responsible architect and we completed all projects including a tennis court, a tree house for yoga as well as a generator building and a small park walk. 

Above you see the veranda and below the house we call Casa da Ilha where we have been staying for almost 2 years. Been amazing living in this house and it’s huge park of a garden. 




The project below is a private recidense that is being finalized the coming months. 

We have also worked with a first line beach hotel at Ilha Grande during these two years. 

Check previous post on the blog for more on pousada | hotel Pé Na Areia. 




Stone facade, eucalyptus beams & wood work roof. 



It’s all about the balance between work & private life. Brazil & Sweden and now in May I go back to Sweden. Marcello will stay and finish our ongoing projects and I will set up our studio in Varberg, Sweden. 

It’s a new dawn. It’s a new life for us.

Kendrick Bangs Kellog High Desert House and Hästens


     Artists Jay and Bev Dolittle are said 
   to have sent a note to architect Kendricks Bangs Kellog to say that they had bought an unusual building site in the Mojave Desert, California in the Joshua Tree National Park. 






The result is the the 
High Desert House also 
called the Dolittle House. 



The Stone Henge of a home is built 
on 26 concrete columns designed 
by the innovator of organic architecture
 Kendricks Bangs Kellog.





 The interior designer John Vugrin has 
been working with the house interior since 
the first note in 1986 and continued 
to  complete the interior of this 
remarkable bespoke unique desert home. 








John Vugrin and Swedish
 Hästens has together with the 
 Dolittles created a 
bespoke round bed that 
really seems to be a 
better fit than a square 
one in this organic home. 





The brief Dolittle has given
 the Hästens bed is going to be used more
 as a sofa and would have looked better in this photo 
if it was styled to fit in instead 
of the blue and white Hästens fabric.  




















"The idea was the house would be settled in the landscape. 
Like it was crouching 
on the rocks, 
maybe like an 
animal at sleep" 

Kendrick Bangs Kellog

Merry Holidays

WORLD AIDS DAY 1 DECEMBER 2021











W O R L D AIDS DAY 1 DEC 2021

36 000 000 peolpe all over the world 🌎 has died of AIDS related illnesses all since the first reports over 40 years ago. Did you know that ? 

38 000 000 [million] humans are living with HIV today around the globe. 

I have lived with the threat of HIV | AIDS since I first came out and afraid tried to figure out who I was as a teenager. I do not recommend sexually transmitted epidemics when you are in a coming out process. I felt noone understood me. Today in the year of the pandemic maybe there is less social injustice regarding minorities in the midst of a pandemic..? 

Still HIV negative myself but have so many friends that have died through the years that I miss and many close friends that have survived and have lived with HIV since the 80’s and are just fine today.

In countries where the proper medicins are provided the fight against HIV continues. In countries where homosexuality is against the law you can imagine the HIV protection system. 

Do you feel you better understand and have empathy for fellow humans that are infected with virus since the world 🌍 epidemic of Covid-19?
