Vacation time

Today is the last workday for a while – yes I know that I just came home from a short trip on Gotland but still, I need this. Time to linger around, reading books, start the mornings with a powerwalk in the forest and a skinnydip in the lake, coffee in the sun, well the list can go on forever but the most important thing about having a vacation is: no deadlines! The days goes by in a nice pace and there arn´t a lot of ”musts” and that is so nice. So, last meeting, a couple of hours of paperwork and then I´m off to the forest and our beloved cabin by the lake. If the mood is on, maybe on a rainy day I´ll write a post to say hi but if not, well, I´m on vacation! Have a great july and I see you in 5 weeks!

Gotland – Bungenäs

I am probably the only person in Sweden that haven´t been to Gotland, our biggest island in the Baltic Sea, until just now. Home again after 5 intense days and a wedding (sounds like a movie title, right?!) and are, like rest of the Swedes, in love with this absolutley beautiful part of the country. The light, the landscape, the food and cool places – there is a lot of reason to fall for this island. Not to mention the architecture, the local proud stone houses inbedded in the amazing landscape. And the modern pieces like in Bungenäs where Skälsö Architects are forming the whole area in this former military base, now nature reserve. It really is worth a full day of it´s own. Dear Gotland, I´ll be back!

Anahi & La Jeune Rue

The iconic Argentinian restaurant located in a Marais backstreet in Paris was created over 20 years ago by the two sisters Carmina and Pilar until they decided to retire and sell the business to French entrepreneur Cédric Naudon who bought Anahi along with 35 other businesses in the area. Naudons´grand vision is to create a design-led village of restaurants, bars and boutiques where the produce is sourced nationally. Anahi opened six months ago as the first restaurant in the project La Jeune Rue.

Storage is often something that my clients find difficulties in planning and it should be paid close  attention to being such important part of the interior. I find this very challenging and fun to work with and always try to find a solution that is both practical and goes well with the rest of the interior. In one of  my on going projects I´m designing both a wardrobe solution for the hallway in the same beautiful wood we use for the flooring, and a big shelving system for the open kitchen-dining-livingroom area. I´m having so much fun at work right now! Here is another great custom made shelf that I have in my archive, maybe this can give you some inspiration?
