I know that I nag about how dark it is in Sweden this time of the year. But really it is so dark that you almost not “wake up” at all during the days now. Luckily we have daylight fluorescent tubes in the ceiling in the studio. Help you to wake up a little, good for photography as well. We also have an ever growing number of plants here, and toys. Well you hear, trying to cheer myself up. While the storm was raging outside the windows yesterday we could pretend to be somewhere else.
How do you survive the darkness? If you live at these latitudes?
The Monstera sure is a fast grown plant.
Have a nice day folks.
So Rut and I got permission to snoop and shoot in my teenage (15 years old) daughter’s room.
Everything happened so fast, suddenly the Schleich horses, the rubber Pokemons, the Kamratposten magazines were gone.
Can I ask you a couple of questions about your room T?
- Well, ok.
What makes you feel good in a room?
- The light is important to me, that it is enough daylight. I don’t like incandescent light much. It’s also nice if there are enough space to to sit and socialize with friends. And I like plants, they makes it feel cosy and kind of fresh.
So do you think that your room meets that?
Overall yes. It has big windows and a big enough bed.
Mention something less good with your room.
- It’s inefficiently soundproof!
Do you have any favorite things in your room?
- My computer, the makeup mirror. I’m also in love with my green wallpaper.
How would the perfect teenage room be for you?
- I don’t know. If my boyfriend lived here, then it would be perfect.
Kindra Murphy’s wallpaper Colorform and to the right – The beloved “Hollywood” makeup mirror Chloe from Sminkspegel.
Also in the room:
Drop wall stickers.
Norfolk Island Pine.
Stripes never wear out saucer.
Scallops by Klara Bothén.
Cecilia Pettersson’s Fir forest.
Cactus, Opuntia chlorotica.
High up on the wish list by Rosanne Groeneweg.
But I have to say it right away, I will be back that’s for sure.

Lauren Rolwing is an illustrator that have just finished her first line of ceramics called Laundrymat. She created a series of plates inspired by prints, garments and her clumsiness that always leads to spilling things on her clothes, especially coffee. Each plate is created by hand, by imprinting the clay with a garment.
