How lucky are you? Super store Nest.co.uk is giving away a Muuto leaf lamp to one (very) lucky AMM reader somewhere in the world!
I have this lamp in grey on my office desk and really like the thin line silhouette and pivoting head.
Wanna know how to enter? Of course you do. Simply subscribe to the Nest newsletter here then visit their store and leave a comment below about your favorite piece. (trying to choose just 1 thing is the hardest part!)
Giveaway ends in one week on Tuesday, March 10th.
Somewhere in the back of my mind I think I need one of these trolley/carts in my life. Maybe I'd only use it to throw books on or I'd stick a lamp on it and use it as a side table. And then I imagine Elin getting older and pulling everything out of it and making a big mess or Israel pushing it from room to room...
Ok, this might have to live on in my mind for a while longer. In the meantime here are a few options, though I should have also include the classic Artek 901 tea trolley because that really would be my first choice!

Since finishing the kitchen I've been a bit more selective about the things we use in it. While washing some rainbow chard yesterday I realized the way I threw these things out of the way was accidentally picture worthy and a perfect opportunity to share a few of my favorites.

Vipp washing up brush
Muji wooden spoon

Happy Monday readers. Yes, it's Monday which is usually everyone's least favorite day so maybe this is the perfect time to announce a new giveaway...? Yes, yes it is.

A little group of things currently sitting on our cabinet. We decided to sell this set of cabinets, with their great Super Front legs and plywood top (covering a big scratch). The dining room is ready for a change. A new and bigger table, hopefully soon, will be here along with enough chairs for the whole family plus guests.
Tomorrow the new owner is picking this up so I might as well enjoy using it for candles and books while I still can.
Black candle holder from Ikea, poster from Kristina Krogh, books from Amazon and Acne, Menu chunk of wood/brass candle holder. Chairs from Muuto & DWR.
Since having the baby my time for making meals has nearly disappeared, plus I've got to do more with just one hand so we have been making lots of fruit & vegetable juice and smoothies. I know there's a million recipes for juices online but I thought I'd share my personal favorite.
It's not the most complex but it certainly is tasty and a good way to get some green while having something sweet.
Juice 3 apples.
Pour the juice into a blender with 3 large stalks of kale, blend until kale is chopped finely.
Add 1 banana and 3 large strawberries and blend together.
In case you're wondering, glass is from Ikea and tea towel from Kollekt.
Danish-Italian design duo Gam Fratesi designed these petal shaped mobiles to hang above the lounge area at the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair this last week where they were guests of honor. The plywood versions are prototypes but I actually like those too, though the fabric covered finished versions are pretty great.
Read more about them, including the a bit more of the process, here.
There's a good chance you've already seen this great place around the blogosphere and I certainly didn't hurry to get this up but this stunning place belongs to stylist Josefin Hååg. I was lucky enough to hang out with her and have fika when we were in Stockholm last April, she's incredibly sweet in addition to being super talented and stylish. See the rest of the photos shot for Residence Magazine by Kristofer Johnsson on her new blog.

I was fortunate to be introduced to luxury basics brand Everlane recently and even see some of their pieces up close. The concept of really quality basic pieces is so appealing to me right now when I want my wardrobe to be simple and unfussy and able to last lots of wear. I tried out some of the tees and silk tops, I am completely sold on their quality and tailoring!
Watch out old tees, you're all about to be replaced.
