I have a huge admiration for the Danish design company, Stelton, so I was quite curious to see what new product releases they would have at the AW17 FORMEX. Without a doubt, the hero story was around the STOCKHOLM  collection.

Hello everyone! I hope you’re all set for a great weekend. While today is really overcast here, it looks like we’re in for some beautiful Autumn weather over the next couple of days. One thing about living in Sweden is that you get to experience all of the seasons and each of them has something special to offer and to look forward to. Thinking about our lovely walks in the crisp air when we first arrived here, I realised that we landed in Stockholm a year ago yesterday. Can you believe it? Time has flown by so quickly. We actually flew out to Cyprus the very next day, so officially we’ve been living here a year next Thursday. I also realised the other day that I haven’t shown you much of our Stockholm apartment, so I thought today I’ll share some photos of my little workspace with you. Fancy a peek?

Six Things on my List from IKEA & HAY’s YPPERLIG collection

By now I think that you’d be well aware of IKEA’S collaboration with HAY entitled, YPPERLIG. It will hit the stores in three weeks and I have to say that I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much excitement around about a product launch before. Have you? Each time I, or others have put something on social media about it, people comment that they are desperately waiting for it to arrive. There’s this sense of fear that they are going to miss out; that they are going to arrive in store only to find that what’s on their list, is already sold out. Some are even suggesting that they will camp out the night before! What? Well, it certainly is an exciting partnership of creative forces.

Formex AW17 | Bliss, The Collection

When you name your collection Bliss, you’re setting rather high standards for a product in terms of that ultimate feeling. But when you couple the dreamy designs of Emma Von Brömssen, with the fluid and tactile ceramics of Kajsa Cramer, the description couldn’t be more fitting.

Step Inside a 12th Century Home in the French Countryside

Drive through the countryside of Charente, France and you might just stumble upon this quaint little village surrounded by vineyards and fields of sunflowers. Beside the old church is a beautiful country home dating back to the 12th century. It looks like something out the set of a movie, but it’s actually the home of Guillaume’s mother. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you may recall “Mamie Annie” when she came to visit us in New Zealand.

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.
