I mentioned a bit ago how I'm rearranging my office space. We put in the bookshelf and I also grabbed a new lamp since the desk area was seriously lacking light. This one is by Muuto and I like the tin touch sensor underneath that turns the light on and off. A small golden bowl from Etco and some Granit pens with a little note paper is just about all I within reach. The simpler my work area, the more motivated I am to get things done!


Hope you're having a happy Monday!

dusk

From some styling work for Åhléns by Emma Persson Lagerberg, I like the softness of this bedroom scene. It reminds me of a quiet evening-like the one when your little one goes to bed early and somehow you manage to cook a really nice dinner for yourself and eat it outside while the sun sets. With candles. And no talking is required. Right...moms?

Tane organics

With baby coming in just a few months you can bet I've had my eye on the best blankets, layettes, booties and hats. Since baby girl is coming in the colder months I am so into soft, knitted textures. And this is just where Tane comes in. Their line of organic clothing, toys and accessories are everything I could ask for.
I was fortunate enough to get to see some of their products first hand and I'm sold. The soft seed stitched blanket, booties and onesie are some of my favorite items so far collected for baby.
Tane recently launched their Autumn/winter line and these sweet skull caps are some of my favorite!

bath


You know that feeling when you find a really great image and you sort of perk up in your chair to get a closer look? Ya, this is that for me. It's from Ikea's blog and has this great styling with their new chair RÅGRUND in an all marbled bath.

stitches

If it seems like I've been posting a lot of stuff from Menu lately but it's only because they've fast become one of my favorite brands. This newer dishware called Stitches designed by Gry Fager has this great heirloom sort of cross stitch pattern but also feels incredibly modern and current.

FJÄLLBERGET

The new Ikea products are coming out soon and I like the look of these wood & upholstered chairs. I'm thinking they'd be a more comfortable solution for our office area.
What do you think of them?

DIY: concrete diamond

Last night I came up with the idea for this marble diamond. I think of concrete as being sort of a classic material but it is certainly making the trend right now. It's also pretty easy to work with. Since I made this in the evening I don't have photos of the process but it was a simple process.

I used this template, printed on printer paper.
Then I lined it with some clear packing tape, otherwise the wet concrete will soften the paper and it won't hold a shape.
Once I covered it in clear tape I cut out the template, folding twice on all the lines to give them a good crease.
Also, don't worry about folding the top part down, that will be your opening to pour into.
I then stuck the pointed part of the paper diamond into a paper cup and poured my concrete mixture through the top.
I used a quick dry cement so it only took about 2 hrs before I could peel the paper off.
I let it dry over night but it's still a little damp, even though the sides are solidified now. (It will lighten in color as the rest of the moisture is evaporated)

Once it's completely dry you can spray paint it a metallic copper or matte white but I think I prefer this imperfect finish, bubble holes and all.

A great little example of a stylist's kitchen. See what an architect and chef designed as well!

I've been wanting to do something different in our office for organizing. We recently put up this Hay Woody shelf for our ingoing/outgoing orders, printer and other papers. I still need to do some arranging but we're getting there and already feeling much more organized!

One of my favorite brands Menu, photographed by Mikkel Rahr Mortensen. I love Menu for it's elegant and rounded shapes, the little bits of metallic and color added to a neutral reservoir of products. Their new website is set to launch very soon.

I've been talking here and there about the corner of our room where we'll put the baby's things. I almost have it finished now. Crib is built, lights are hung, bedding washed. But I'm waiting one more small item before I share her space. You can see peeks of it on my Instagram stream though!
