As we are heading off to Italy tomorrow I want to wish you all a great summer! Thank you for being here and special thanks for all comments, happy like a child on Christmas Eve everytime someone writes something. I will be taking things slow on the blog during rest of June-July but will be back on full speed in August. Of course there will be something in between too but we all need a break now so - my best wishes to you!

Thank you & hope to have you back here soon

Sweden´s most charming home?

Recently I was invited by Fastighetsbyrån to give my ideas for what makes a "charming home". This was for their competition "Sveriges Charmigaste Hem" where they are looking for people to send in pictures of where they live and then find the winner of 30 000 SEK (gift card) to buy furniture wherever you want. Additionally the winner´s house will be featured in Expressen´s "Leva & Bo". Are you the one with the most charming home in Sweden - have a go at the competition page. Or do you want to read my thoughts on what makes a charming home, have a look here.

Sorry for the Swenglish folks but this one is mostly for the Swedish readers as all information for the competition is in Swedish....

Fingers crossed

I used to do a "guess who lives here?"-game but have forgotten about it for a while. Thought about doing one now but realised I know too little about this woman. The answer would however be; Miss Felicity aka actress Kerri Russel´s home in Brooklyn, NY.

Living la vida loca

Laughed out loud when I spotted this picture at Cherry Blossom World. Couldn´t describe my life better right now. Laundry laundry laundry and packing packing packing. 2 more days and then we are off!

Blogger homes

I love when bloggers show pictures of how they live. Often the styling is great and the photography is also quite astonishing. This is the home of the Finnish blogger behind beautiful blog Likainen Parketti, I like it.

Another great example here.

Jump jump!

I´ve been thinking about it for a long time, with as much anxiety as excitement. I will from this fall try something completely new and go in to the lovely world of interior endlessness. Thanks to a very understanding employer I´m taking a leave of absence from my job as Marketing Manager to go side by side and learn from one of my biggest idols - interior stylist Lotta Agaton. I´m so exited, thankful and just absolutely happy to get this incredible opportunity and am counting the days until end of August when I´m set to start. In addition to the fact that Lotta is one of the most talented, professional and sweet stylists ever she also works with an absolutely lovely assistant (Lina) that I´m so happy to have gotten to know in the times I´ve been working during this spring. Seem exited? More than that!! And in all honesty...also completely terrified. But this has been a dream for such a long time and I just have to try it out and see if there is room in it for me.

This is also the first time I´m writing in English here on the blog and this is something that I´ll be doing from now on. I´m so happy to in addition to all you lovely Swedes get visitors from other countries too, and want to include you all in what is said, so from today - English it is! (However, not to get the language thing to become something that makes me hesitate to write as much as usual, please try to ignore spelling mistakes or any other slips ups that might occur....thank you!)

I will be taking it a bit more slow on the blog during bits of summer since we will be away a lot but of course there will be up dates here and there anyway and in August things will get back to normal again. Still here for another week though so don´t go anywhere just yet.

Looking forward to a new beginning and hoping that you will be here to join me along the way!

Trevlig helg!

Varje dag går jag förbi denna bänk på väg till och från dagis. Älskar hur naturen bestämt sig för att fullkomligt sluka den. Finns det någon vackrare tid än nu? Trevlig helg till Er alla!
