Notes from a Swedish stylist


Beige is shit – not

Posted in Life

Emma doesn't want to be sleek but boring Natasha – she wants to be colourful Carrie.

Do you guys remember the episode from Sex and the city when Carrie and Aidan is at a furniture fair and Mr Big and Natasha show up? And how a very drunk Mr Big slurs that his wife “has her eye on a beige chair” and “everything in his apartment is now beige – beige is shit”?

The other day I realize that EVERYTHING in our apartment is beige. The sofa, the bed, the sheets and the towels. I don’t hate beige, quite the opposite. But still, I don’t want our home to be fifty shades of beige. If I were to blame someone I would have to point a finger towards our shredding pug Stella. And maybe my hopeless love for beige linen AND the very boring fact that it is a very forgiving color when it comes to dirt. Still I don’t want to be the sleek but boring Natasha, I want to be colorful Carrie. So in my desperate hunt to add some color in my life I stumbled in to these vintage pillows that are now out for auction (that I am hoping to win), do you like them?
