Notes from a Swedish stylist

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!

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…
