I just came back from the most wonderful week in Paris with my daughter and found this soft pale moodboard at Heimelig that completely sets my mood for today..romantic, soft and relaxed. Happy French Friday!

My heart skipped a beat when I saw this project over at Tant Johannas blog at Lovely Life, this is the reason why I move so often, I fall in love with places and projects like these..but right now I am in the middle of my own renovation of my new apartment at Nytorgsgatan so I am just going to sit back and enjoy these pictures and follow the progress of the new happy owners of Villa Strömsfors.
This is The Society Inc Hotel in Paddington, Australia, designed and owned by interior stylist Sibella Court makes me want to open a hotel, I just love this personal feeling of staying at someones place..and that bathroom is to die for.

When I worked for Designers Guild 20 years ago I had my apartment all painted in diffrent strong colours such as lime green, cobalt blue and terracotta after that my next home was all calm in Farrow & Balls beige and sand colours. Then I went white with bright contrast colours and wallpapers and now as you might know I have had a couple of years with white, black, grey and neutrals.
Last year I began to get on a darker journey by painting Lotta Agaton Shop first grey-green then dark grey and dark blue. This is what happens when you work with interiors, you have to experiment and move on. Find your own path, trust your gut feeling and don’t be afraid what others think. . After colour comes neutrals and after dark comes light. That is just the way it goes and for me it is really not about trends it is just a natural process and all about a constant curiosity and crave for change.
The blog Seventeen Doors posted her brilliant Sunday Column yesterday about white getting dark and even if I am walking that way too in my new apartment I must admit it is with mixed emotions since there is nothing as serene, pure and uplifting than a white surface being hit by sunlight and my guess is that after this new darkness we will probably go all white again..
This is Kaari, a completely new range of furniture by Erwan and Ronan Bouroullec for Artek. It was launched during Stockholm Furniture Fair ithe other week and I love how they have kept Alvar Aaltos significant shapes and translated it into their own design.
