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.
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.
On Wednesday I visited Formex Stockholm to check out the latest in the Nordic interior trend world. I’m sure you don’t doubt me when I say it was an interior lover’s paradise. I’m also pretty sure that many of you would be interested in a little peek of some of the key trends spotted. Am I right? Okay, let’s go.
Well hello everyone! I hope that you had a lovely christmas and you’re already in motion for a great 2017. If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen that we spent the festive period in Toulouse, France. We had such a great time catching up with everyone and showing the kids where it all began for our little family all those years ago.
Can you believe it’s been a little over two months since I moved to Sweden? I love every minute being here and each weekend we explore a little more around our neighbourhood. We are constantly blown away by the beauty of this city that’s made up of islands, parkland and stunning ancient architecture. While these new experiences are fresh, I thought that it would be fun to share with you 12 things I’ve learnt in my first two months living in Stockholm:
Hi there. Wow it’s been quite a moment since I put the fingers to the keypad. I prepared all of my New Zealand Month posts well in advance before the voyage to Sweden and I have to say I’m really glad I did. The past couple of months I have been very preoccupied to say the least.
I’ve long admired the work of these two Norweigen designers, Torbjørn Anderssen and Espen Voll, and previously featured a collaboration of their work for the Food Work Project on the blog. The two are most known for their designs for brands like Wrong for Hay, Muuto, Magis, Erik Jørgensen, Kvadrat and Foscarini. Now they’ve branched out and formed Nedre Foss and I’m excited to see what they will come up with next.
