Thank you + interpretation by Mogu

Thanks a bunch for cheering the new Tomato poster! I’m truly amazed and happy for the support here on the blog and on Instagram, wow. And thanks for all orders that have popped in :)!

Yesterday we booked a trip to California (next summer)!, today I had the luck to meet up with one of Gothenburg’s most skillful designers (more in a coming blog post) and we even got some fresh flowers on the table. Life can be good.

Look at the cool interpretation by talented (the energy, the quality!) artist Mogu Takahashi of yesterday’s photo of me holding the framed tomato fellow here. The drawing portrayes our darling cats as well as and the stool above (painted by Mogu). Mogu is sharing her amazing daily doodles at this Instgram account, follow!

And Mogu’s wallpaper, love.

Summer in the city still

Even the garden here is green. It’s weird how you almost expect the leafs to turn yellow and brown as soon as vacation is over. The air is warm also. And I’m sure that if you had time and possibility you could probably take a swim in the ocean without freezing your but off.

But the double quilts are clasped together again – we have Ikea’s “Three down quilts in one“. A thinner summer quilt and a thicker quilt combine to make an extra warm and thick quilt for winter nights. And the wool sweaters are back on the rack again. Just to be prepared.

Still in to water lilies. This Vogue cover, and this lamp. And my blanket.

There are some news on it’s way to the shop, looking forward to it.

Been digging deep our apartment looking for angles this weekend. Småland again tomorrow night, looking forward to it.

Below, close up of our most beautiful birch basket and I adore this birch scarf.

City life

What a good thing I have this blog. Makes me feel less weird wandering around in the apartment shooting pics. Cause I need it.

Husband made fish soup and we had fika. It’s summer in the city too.

I’ll show you a nice painting I bought the other day.
And we are watching The Killing.

We do not necessarily worry, but we are thinking a lot. About how things will be when the little one comes. As I understand it Brittish Shorthair is a tolerant and “easygoing breed of cat”. And the Devon Rex prefers company. The prospects are good, she is a she + she is a kitten. We will phase them together, step by step. That’s how you suppose to do it, right?

I’m also wondering if the Monstera leaf will survive. It’s been a week now.

Take a look at Mogu Takahashi’s doodle’s and be inspired!

Where I am

Spring was here for a short visit this weekend. I do hope we will have it back soon. Was out running in the grey earlier today. Now I am sitting here. Hello from a living room.

About new things

Many things are going on here at the moment. Changes, pretty big ones as well. Looking forward to it all, it’s positive changes. But first some news coming in. As you might remember my colleague Anna and I went to Tunisia, October 2011 to meet the lovely couple Rym and Zied. Our trip ended up with Anna and me creating the brand House of Rym together with Rym (yes her name is Rym) and Zied. It sure has been a journey. And that journey is still in progress. Actually our new collection for House or Rym is about to see daylight any day now. Even though there will be only parts of the collection available in the shops at first you will be able to see most of it here in advance. So if you are curious about what’s coming be sure to peep in here and there. Tomorrow for example, or the day after that (depending how much time and energy the new week has to offer). I might show some at Instagram as well.

Two of our new porcelain parts (and wooden salt & peppar mushrooms) premiered at the kitchen table today with Quorn vegetable stew and cheese sandwiches.

Nice plant theme in Potipoti spring/summer collection 2013. I especially like the potted cacti scarf.

And cloth revival

Not only have I become attached to plants and long walks in the park these day but also to cloths. Digging them out from the closets and make the trouble of finding them in forgotten boxes in the attic (don’t iron them though). Is it just me? Apologies for the rather wild middle-aged look in my eyes.

News from the The Knife finally, A Tooth For An Eye.

Do you do this

Step back. Observe?
I do it, not always through a camera. But sometimes through several. Look at the difference, here and there.

There is so many shoes out there.

Nice to be home

The kids have winter holidays. I run around. Met Isabelle from Dos family the other day.

Take a look at the Swedish design duo How are You‘s Mini bar “It’s raw, it’s neat, it’s made for keeping liquor in”. Remember their nice pillows?

New issue out, Lille Nord.
