IMM 2018 favorites - Sting furniture

If you follow me on instagram you might have noticed that this
 last week was all about travelling and interior inspiration ... 
I really love city trips and combining those two  was just perfect!

Last weekend I visited Copenhagen with my love and this Thursday I traveled 

Initially we would travel with an organized press trip but due to the terrible weather 
conditions it ran completely different and we were almost too late for the tour.
Fortunately we made it because I did not want to miss it!

One part of the tour and also one of my favorites was the stand of String furniture!
The inspirational stand was (just like last year) styled by Lotta Agaton and her team 
consisting of Pella Hedeby and Marie Ramse and it really looked stunning! 
I love their stylingwork and the color- accessory and material use so much ... 
Beautiful simplicity that gives the String products extra shine!

Next to the older accessories, there were also new products to admire. 
In addition to my new favorite;  the beautiful String pocket in oiled teak or smoked oiled oak
We could also admire the bottle and wine  hanger of the iconic design from 1949, 
'the home bar,' and also the mirror cabinet, which can be integrated into the
 modular shelves system. It can change the bathroom in an exclusive and, above all, 
useful beauty zone. All new accessories in the String Collection are designed by
 Anna von Schewen and Björn Dahlström and are great additions to the 
current collection dont yoy think so? 

Just another beautiful exemple that details really make the difference 

als je mijn instagram volgt zul je gemerkt hebben dat het afgelopen week allemaal om reizen en wooninspiratie ging... Ik hou zo van reizen en citytrips en wat is er mooier als je die 2 kunt combineren! Vorig weekend was ik samen met mijn lief in Copenhagen en afgelopen donderdag reisde ik samen met Jantine en Vivian van AprilandMay naar Keulen waar we uitgenodigd waren voor de new Scandinavian trade fair tour for Imm2018 van Desiree Vosgesparis.

In eerste instantie zouden we meereizen met een georganiseerde persreis maar door de slechte weersomsandigheden liep het helemaal anders en kwamen we zelfs bijna te laat voor de tour aan.
 Gelukkig hebben we het gered want ik had het niet willen missen!

Een van de onderdelen van de tour en ook echt één van mijn favorieten was de stand van String!
De inspirerende stand is ook dit keer, net als vorige jaar,  gestyled door Lotta Agaton en haar team bestaande uit Pella Hedeby en Marie Ramse en zag er geweldig uit! Ik hou zo van hun stylingwork, kleur- en materiaal gebruik... Prachtige eenvoud die de nieuwe producten van String zo mooi uit laat komen!

Want nieuwe produkten waren er dit keer ook te bewonderen... Naast mijn nieuwe favoriet;  de
prachtige String pocket in geolied teak of gerookt geolied eiken waren ook de fles en wijnhanger te zien van het iconische ontwerp uit 1949 "de thuis bar"  en de spiegelkast, die kan worden geïntegreerd in het modulair "rekken" systeem, waardoor de badkamer veranderd  kan worden in een exclusieve en vooral ook handige beauty zone. 
 Alle nieuwe accessoires in de Stringcollectie zijn ontworpen door Anna von Schewen en Björn Dahlström en zijn geweldige aanvullingen op de huidige collectie, vind je ook niet!

The Gjøvik house - Norm Architects

             "An hour north of Oslo, located on a majestic hill side facing
               the Norwegian woods and Mjøsa lake, lies the Gjøvik house; 
             a modern and minimal cluster house created by Norm Architects."

The latest design of Norm Architects (leaded by Linda Korndal) 
a modern cluster house, 
has been finished and looks amazing in my opion...

"This amazing family home with materials, levels and inbuilt, tailor-made furniture creating
a minimal yet warm and secluded feeling. The house gracefully embraces the hill side terrain, 
merging with its surroundings in a humble and natural manner."

"A forgotten house, Vrångsholmen was once built as a safe haven for saving children from the 
dangers of city life by being raised in a healthy rural environment.
 But times changed. Later the house was rescued by an artistic association and today creativity  
permeates the house. Welcome to explore some of our items curated in this context.ut times changed.

 A beautiful old house and the most beautiful new home furnishings...

After their amazing campaign for Christmas (see here) Swedish company 
Artilleriet has released new pictures of their latest design news for
 Spring 2018 and I just loved the inspiring images filled with
 beautiful details in these amazing dreamy surroundings...

Shared some of my favorites below with my number one crush for this moment:

the cloud 19 lamp by Apparatus Studio (2) but also the black Pallo vase (1) 
 the black schooley lamp by Mark Eden (3) the Censer by Apparatus Studio and the
 Crinkle throw by Hay (5). Beautiful and timeless items that would fit perfectly
 in our homes, dont you think so?

Just admired this stunning creative workspace at the 
home of stylist  Anna Lenskog Belfrage seen at livet hemma
 and I loved the inspiring styling work... 

I'm thinking about changing my shelves,  so when I saw the used shelf from 
the Ypperlig collection (the collaboration  between IKEA and HAY) ,  
I was attracted immediately!  I just love the warm, stylish and minimal design and 
in my opion the shelf fits in many interiors,  dont you think so? 
What's not to love at these images? 

Just a perfect start of this new work week...   have a happý one!

This must be the place - Pia Ulin

A little while ago I 've got my eye on the new book of photographer 
Pia Ulin (based in Sweden)  I read about "this must be the place" last August
at the blog of Lotta Agaton and the way she described the book it had to be a 
very beatiful and personal book, designed to perfection by the Studio.

Last holidays I finally could admire it myself after I was gladly surprised 
with this very inspiring book for Christmas! Besides the very'
 attractive cover (i have this thing with covers...) I cant stop admiring
 the images and discover more about her life and the places she lived. 

"Pia Ulin has documented her home-history (26 homes) throughout her 52 years of moving around. The homes are big and small and stretches from Stockholm, Los Angeles, Gotland, New York and some other remote places in the world. She has also included some clothing connected to some of the homes."

 Our products get alive when they become a part of a context, when they take place in someone's life
Hillevi Magnell - Designer

Already saw some photos on their instagram in December
but since I discoverd more images at the porfolio 
I keep admiring these beautiful styled images for design studio

Love their beautiful inspiring stylingwork and the
 stunning furniture of this new Danish brand,  
that makes me more intrigued and even more greedy!

Happy new year

| from blush to burgundy... The new Palette |

 My new year couldn't start better than with the new work from
Lotta Agaton for H&M home, just loved the harmonious soft 
atmosphere created by the mix of different shades of pink,  the warm neutral
 tones (as the wood and the concrete) and the stylish accessories 

For this Spring Season Campaign 2018 Lotta worked with a wonderful team, 
consisting of Therese Sennerholt (art director) and photographer Heidi Lerkenfeldt
which inspired me from the first moment I saw these images!

After a great year full of beautiful things that happened, new possibilities,
travelling, friendships and lot's of inspiration I'm looking forward for 
new opportunities and great moments... 

I wish you all the best for 2018, have a fantastic happy new year!
