Leading on from last week’s post about buying for a purpose and with a conscience, over the coming months I will feature some beautifully made and timeless Scandinavian design, a lot of it I had the pleasure of viewing at the Stockholm Furniture Fair. I will kick it off with Skagerak, a Danish company that has been designing furniture for over forty years and over this time, accumulating many industry awards. Putting their history and accolades aside, true to a lot of Scandinavian style, their products are all about form and function, with of course, great design. Skagerak’s motto is “design for generations” meaning that not only do they create beautiful product, they also take quality and sustainability very seriously.

Buying for the Home with a Purpose and a Conscience

I feel like we’ve been purchasing a lot for our home lately. It tends to happen when we move into a new place. The configurations and the size of the homes are different, coupling that with our children getting older and their ever changing needs. At these times we find ourselves donating things that we no longer have use for and adding what is missing. Usually we find that the purging has outweighed the adding, so moving a lot has been good for us over the years. This time, it has been different.

Before leaving NZ, I was super excited to be asked to contribute to my Urban Jungle Blogger friends, Igor and Judith’s book, Urban Jungle, Living and Styling with Plants. Since its launch at the end of last year, I’ve had a couple of the books to giveaway. This all coincided with the big move to Stockholm and settling in to my new life and well, all of that stuff just got in the way. Plus, I had to re-create my very own urban jungle at home from scratch after leaving all of my beloved plants back in NZ.

I had no idea how many Swedish traditions there were until I arrived in Stockholm. There are so many in fact, that there is an entire 160-page book dedicated to them. We are having a lot of fun discovering them and deciding which ones we will take with us when we move back home.

There are so many reasons to visit Morocco. But if you’re a lover of interior decoration, I promise you, for that alone, it’s worth a trip. Think rugs, leather poufs, silver platters, trays, tiles, ceramics, throws and more. There is no doubt that you will leave this magical city with a full suitcase bursting with ideas of how to inject a little bohemian style into your home

Why the silence on Styled Canvas?

You might have noticed this unintentional silence that I’ve had here for a while. It’s been on my mind a lot lately. To be truthful, I had completely different plans for this blog the past few months. I scheduled posts to play out during my transit from New Zealand to Sweden that featured some of the wonderful talent from the home I was leaving. I arrived in Stockholm, so excited to share my adventure, and then it happened. Blank. Complete and utter nothing. Here I was in an amazing new country and yet I felt I had nothing to write about. I didn’t understand it. And so, I kept silent. I wrote an occasional post, although I mainly only kept in touch via Instagram.

SisterMAG meets SCHOTT CERAN event | photo by Timo Roth

Last Friday I flew to Cologne to attend a blogger event hosted by SisterMAG and SCHOTT CERAN to celebrate their latest product glass ceramic range, MiradurTM. I heard recently from a reliable source that the team at SisterMag really know how to put on events and it’s always so great to spend some time with fellow bloggers in person, so I jumped at the chance.
