A lovely launch

Hi everyone! Back on track. Hope you've had a lovey summer. 
Last week I was invited to a really fantastic launch of the new wallpaper collection L’Hôtel from Sandberg wallpaper. It took place in the fantastic Villa Strömsfors with a bunch of really nice people. Right now I just want to buy an old charming house with high ceilings and cover the walls with this french pariasian inspired beauties. More lovely pictures from the collection and the villa at Sandberg Wallpaper. Photos: Mia Linnman

The lounge

The lounge in the background is one of my favourite places in the house, a place for talking and discussions, a place to enjoy a typical swedish "fika" (which means coffee with cookies or buns) or an afternoon drink, a dry martini or just a glass of wine. A perfect place to read and relax. The iron  shelves are made from my sketches by local craftsmen. I´ll show you more of my iron projects next time. Happy friday! Photo: Mia Linnman

Welcome summer and Ebbe!

This last month has been amazing! Sunny and warm every day, and I mean EVERY day for the last four weeks. We've also got a new little lovely person in our family – my husbands oldest daughter's second child; the cutest little boy you can imagine. Happy new week! Photo: Mia Linnman

Last time I blogged it was still winter and now it's early summer. Time flies and I don't really know if it's lack of inspiration, time or reason to keep this blog running. Anyway, here's a picture for you who still visiting this place. Hope you're well. Photo: Mia Linnman.

Winter came some weeks ago. And when that's a fact you just have to embrace it even if I'm longing for the first signs of spring. Hot cocoa and skating on shiny ice isn't bad after all.
Finally got some pictures on the wall above the shelves made by a local blacksmith.  Photo: Mia Linnman

Back home after an inspiring Art expedition in London last weekend. Luckily everything went fine with unmounting (and mounting) the canvases and transporting it all. After an intense period of painting it felt good to put the studio back to order. I also made some refurnishing, one chair ended up in the living room and the other in the studio. I also got the old Ikea coffee table out of the storage.
(The Wassily Chair, also known as the Model B3 chair, was designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925-1926.) Photo: Mia Linnman

Art Fair

New year and new challenges! This year I have promised myself to dare more, to step outside my comfort zone and release the need of control. A part of this is to participate to Parallax Art Fair in Kensington, London this weekend. It will be great fun and exciting to do something new. There's also some new work on my website.

We spent New Years Eve in Cannes, France. It's really a pleasure to be there off season. 
Soon january has come to an end, a fresh year is laying before us with opportunities and adventures. Isn't that wonderful? Luckily I have no personal complaints of 2017. Me and my family is healthy, we have the privilege to travel the world and there's harmony in our lives. I hope for love and peace to everyone and the earth this year! Let's go! Photo: Mia Linnman.

Happy Christmas!

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas time.
This is one of may favorite spots in the house and finally I have changed the wall colour from bluegrey to beige with a lime paint kalklitir (Leo) and arrange some pictures. A photo from the royal wedding between Charles and Diana taken by my husband 1981 and a painting by my one of my favorite artists Jesper Waldersten. The lovely striped cushion is from Christina Lundsteen. The iron and steel shelves is my own design and hand made by local craftsmen.

No smoking!

I'm definitely not a smoker but I love my ash-tray from Supreme. Probably perfekt for some cookies.

Céline is my absolute favorite brand and the spring 18 looks are really lovely. Thought I'd never wear seventies-style glasses (since I grew up with it) but I love these. Photos: Céline.
