Notes from a Swedish stylist


The heart of the home

Emma ponders a new kitchen

I am planning how to best remodel our kitchen. I’ll show you some pictures soon, but I want to hear your thoughts! Maybe you have a few do’s and don’ts to share when it comes to kitchens? For example is it bad to have light-colored stone for the worktops? This is something I am pondering. The picture is from the kitchen in my friend Amna’s home, one of the warmest, most loving kitchens I know – and one I’ll definitely be taking inspiration from!


The one and only

A lifelong favourite, the cosy knit

Do you have one garment that you just can’t get enough of? For me, it’s a cable-knit sweater. Why? I’m not entirely sure, but I think it has something to do with one that I had as a child that I absolutely loved. Our fashion tastes often get crystallised in childhood I think. It is also down to the fact that a cable knit is one of those pieces that will work forever all year around – at least in Sweden.  When I am old and grey I am sure that I still will wear my cable sweaters all the time. By then I might even know how to knit them myself, fingers crossed for that!


Neatnik

On the walk-in closet of dreams

Today is the big day. All my shoes are moving to their new home… A walk-in closet!!! It’s not massive, but still, a walk-in closet is a walk-in closet, right? This is not only the reason for calling today a big day, it’s also the start of our new life in the countryside. Back to the closet, I am already dreaming of how I will color-coordinate all my clothes and even underwear. I tell André that I do it because it makes it so much easier to find things – and that is partly true – but the real reason is that I just LOVE the ecstasy of (imagined) control rushing through when everything around me is tidy. This is actually something I have only realized in the few months about myself.  You see, I never saw my self as a tidy control freak until we started to pack up the apartment (the state of our home has been absolute chaos the past three weeks.) At one point I thought I would have a meltdown because of the stress the messiness caused me! Looking back it was something I needed, sort of a shock treatment. Still I am probably going to be just as much a neatnik to live with at the house…

The cure?

Can tea cure a cold? Emma is banking everything on it!

Just when I thought that I was safe, I caught the cold that the boys have had since last week. The timing could be better, because we move all our furniture this weekend. So now I’m drinking an immune support tea from Yogi teas like there is no tomorrow, hoping it will work its magic and I’ll be back to my normal self soon. Other than that, I am so exited to show you guys all the little projects we have going on in the house. Next week I’ll be sharing the stairs, something we have been renovating ourselves!

 


A perfect occasion to dress up.

Shirt, 4 years old from Acne Studios. Overalls, AG jeans. 

As the clothes I’m wearing today are covered in baby spit and milk, I thought that I would post this picture instead. It’s from the Garance Doré team’s recent visit a few weeks back. They went to our office to interview us and take pictures of the studio – a perfect occasion to dress up.


We’re almost there

Emma is looking forward to moving to the new house.

Sorry for my lack of posting anything I’ve had my hands full. We just started our move to the house and Dylan and André both have a terrible cold. Dylan is also in his forth leap which so far has been his worst case of baby pms yet. Luckily he is so damn cute so it doesn’t drive me that crazy. We spent the weekend at the house painting walls and me and Stella had a walk around the lake. The autumn colours where spectacular! Really can’t wait to walk here everyday.
