Blog tip | Our food stories

I found a new German - English food blog today (thanks Holly for the tip) with beautifully styled food pictures. It is called Our food stories and the bloggers behind it are two Berliners, the fashion designer/food stylist Nora Eisermann and the photographer Laura Muthesius.

What I like most is that they use a mix of Scandinavian tableware and vintage pieces together with a lot of flowers and leaves in the pictures.

The first picture with the letter plates forming the word "food" was a fun idea. I think I never get rid of my hangup for graphic things!

Beautiful Swedish allotment

I was just about to log out and take a long sleep (it is Saturday tomorrow and the week has been busy), and then I saw this beautiful allotment on Lovely Life. I know I could not find any sleep before I share these pictures with you. Such an adorable place and so richly coloured photos! The house and garden belongs to the ceramist Elin Lannsjö and it is located in Gothenburg, Sweden. I especially fell in love with the wild flowery garden and the unique floor lamp! But there are a lot of inspiration details in each picture. See more here and here and let it sink in...
I will make a mental note of Elin's garden tips: Mediterranean plants (olive trees, lavender), climbing roses, columbines, poppies, hammock and wicker chairs. The flowers in a few main colours. Success, as you see.



Mood board with pictures from my Pinterest board Summer
Hope you are celebrating a fab Midsummer! We have rain and lots of clouds here, with a few sunbeams inbetween (totally useless running in and out to catch them). In fact, quite a typical Midsummer weather. However, everything else is there. Free days, strawberries, barbecued food and family!

Below a Finno-Swedish summer song for you. It is catchy and seems to become a real summer torture on the radio. Have a nice weekend!




I have bought lavender for my balcony. It is said to manage on the latitude of northern Africa as well, so I see that it has a tiny possibility to survive on my glassed balcony this summer, even though I forget watering it.
I can also see it through a small window in my living room. So the lavender brings joy both outside and inside.

Otherwise I am still waiting for the summer to begin... Hello? Summer, where are you? Mixed up the dates?

Ikea news 2015 and 2016

I happened to stumble across these interesting pictures yesterday with the new collections that Ikea is going to launch later this autumn and also as far ahead as during 2016. The pictures were nicely photographed in a way that I like and the news looked really interesting so I wanted to share them with you. They are taken by Marie Claire Maison during an event in Älmhult earlier this spring where the new upcoming collections were presented. The Sinnerlig collection has circulated quite much in the blogosphere already, but otherwise there were a lot of other interesting news also coming. I was surprised that no one else than the French magazine has yet paid attention to all of these.
Sinnerlig by Ilse Crawford. Available in September 2015.
Skogsta. Available in August 2015.
 Sittning. Available in September 2015.
Viktigt by Ingegerd Råman. Available in May 2016.
Tillfälle. Available in February 2016.
Svärtan by Martin Bergström. Available in August 2016.
Användbar. Available in April 2016.
What I liked most?
The Tillfälle series with the small coffee table with graphic pattern and the wooden stool with black topping! I also liked the Skogsta stool and the Viktigt cane chair in black for outdoor living.

Which one is your favourite?



Bubbles on my mind

Ever since I saw this picture I have not been able to let go of it. The Linné carafe has remained on my mind and I was really thinking if I maybe happen to need a summer gift. Or if I would start a habit of always buying a summer gift to myself. Green looks so nice but I think I would choose clear to be able to have any kinds of colours on the flowers in it.

I continue dreaming as my wish list and ideas are exploding at the moment... So many bubbles on my mind right now!
