Swedish pearl

For me, the most beautiful interiors have always been the creative ones- large rooms, scarcely furnished, with an eclectic style and a steady hand. They need to have lots of light, some French boudoir chic and mid-century Scandinavian pieces. They should exude individuality and shouldn´t be too matchy.

Too cool for school

Back to school for a course this weekend- multicultural perspectives in interpreting. I´ve studied something similar for a year in 2004, but this is a nice reminder of the fact that ethnicity is constructed and that togetherness is as excluding for some groups as it is including for others. This line of thoughts can never be discussed too thoroughly.

On top of that I get to drink lots of coffee with people I like. And practice standing in a toilet queue and chat, the way we did in ninth grade. Lots of fun.

I even found the time to check out three of my favourite shops and I thought I should share those with you.

Swedish COS stands for stylish clean-cut quality clothes.

Our home

I want to introduce you to our messy and maximalist, but friendly home. We´ve been together for ten years now and along our path we´ve collected a lot of things and gadgets, small works of art or simply souvenirs from the places we´ve visited. We´re into mid-century design and would rather save and invest in certain iconic objects from time to time than buy the regular Ikea stuff. On the other hand, I´ve been a student for ages and those years are best described as creative, but lacking in cash.
