I love lingering over meals with family and friends especially during the holiday season. For me the¬†kitchen is the heart of the home. So right now I’m looking for the right lightning for our dining table. The options are to buy one or design one. Our table at home is very big by Restoration Hardware and I really want something extraordinary. With a right lighting you can make a room sing and look beyond beautiful.

See you there



I’m ¬†pleased to celebrate the architect Mr Ram√≥n Esteve, who designed this magical residence on a cliffside over the Mediterranean sea in J√°vea, Spain.

Everything with this house is marvelous and very thought through. The outdoor is magical and enchanting, not to mention the inside, which measures up fully with the outdoor. One thing is certain: I love stone or concrete walls and Mr Esteve designed the house with a lot of concrete.

Privacy is important right?! This house is very open, spacious and with a lot of glass but the entrance of the house is very private and more closed off that the rest of it. Well done Mr Esteve!

There is of course an infinity edge pool, which is a swimming or reflecting pool which produces a visual effect of water extending to the horizon. You can also see the outside pool with a large glass that connects it to the indoor pool area. The light passes through the glass panel, which brings a sense of the outdoors to the indoor pool. Besides the pool; the basement level houses guest bedrooms, a gym, a sauna, a dressing room, service and parking areas.

Throughout the years I have noticed that people, or buyers, first and foremost want beautiful design and architecture; something that makes them feel unique or even better something that is both unique and customized. This breathtaking house is for sure one of a kind.

My own very creative day

This last weekend I spent in our house in Spain, which is both designed and built by me and my husband. It is the one place I can fully relax and meditate. And with relaxation comes creativity, so here is a project that I made during the weekend.

I had a painting made out of newspapers, made by an artist, that I didn’t have a frame for. What I did was go out and find a pallet, treated the wood and then painted it. I put in screws and then I fastened the painting on top of the pallet. I think the result is amazing and I hope it gives you an idea for your home as well!


Allow me to introduce a exclusive scented candle by Cire Trudon, the oldest candle makers. This amazing company started 1643 and each candle is still handmade with the same process and principles that was setup by the founder Claude Trudson. These candles come in several sizes and are made of vegetable-based wax.

I always use candles as the final touch to a room. Mostly i used it for softer and cosier moments or for informal days. The right candle can set a perfect or that special mood and transforming your home with its magical fragrance.

Did you know that Napoleon Bonaparte gave his newborn son a candle from Cire Trudon, graced with his personal cameo and 3 gold seals?!!!


Have a cup of tea and chill out

I’m loving the change in the weather. It’s getting colder and I have a warm cup of tea in my hand. So I couldn’t help but feel inspired to write about why I love tea.

First and foremost I love how it makes me feel. I get warm, recharged, focused; like a deep relaxation. I really love the flavor of tea. In the morning I go for black tea and before I sleep for the night I always drink Rooibos. I was actually introduced to Rooibos couple of years a go by a friend. She mentioned how good this tea is.

Rooibos is a red tea and usually grown in South Africa. The health benefits of this red tea are plenty. It¬†contains no caffeine which is perfect and it’s¬†use as a cure for nagging headaches, stomach cramps, eczema, bone weakness, insomnia, asthma, hypertension, allergies, and premature aging. Well, you can imagine how happy I got when my friend mentioned about premature aging ūüôā

Btw, I love my new teapot!

Today I just had to share this apartment in Stockholm with you, which¬†by the way is for sale. The reason why i’m sharing this apartment, and its very unique style, is to show you that even really strong colors and over the top design can work and be coolish. This is not typically my design and how I would do it, but I want to show that taste and style is subjective. (However I do love the pink piano) ūüôā

So, let me invite you in. Especially if you are tired of just pure white colors.

Link to the apartment:

Old English is a series of blown glass vases designed by floral artist Claus Dalby for Holmegaad. The series includes two smaller vases 19 and 24 cm, also the 60 cm flower vase that i’m going to write about today.

This bigger floor vase is of cause relaunched, and it’s so “in” and reblogged. The vase is produced in transparent glass and created to reveal the beauty of the flowers. The inspiration of this gorgeous¬†one comes from the English gardens tradition.

Perfect decor to have on the dining table, in the hall way or on the floor in the bed room.



“Few things make me happier than good food shared with good people. I work to design and make tableware special enough to accompany the¬†heartfelt¬†gatherings that make up some of our most memorable moments together. In short, I believe that your plates should earn their seat at your table, and that together we can make mealtimes everywhere more beautiful”,
