All Grey

After a wonderful weekend in the Alps with snow, cheese fondue and sauna baths I feel … super sick! Wish I could write rested. So it will be office time in the morning and then I will make my way home and tuck myself in. But I thought I’d first show one of my favourite outfits for this season - consisting of leather pants, lace top and woolen jacket with a fur collar, I wear sneakers, or possibly heels indoors depending on the occasion.

Pants - Zara, Bag - Longchamp, Top Massimo Dutti

I read such a good quote this morning from Steve Jobs, it reads: You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever… I think it says so much about life and career, and with that quote I let my week begin. 

Winter weekend

The weekend in Pictures; Guarda Val in Voa Sporz, Me in full winter outfit, mountains and sunset, lunch at Panorama hotel and now finishing with some work and a glass of wine before stranding myself in the sofa. It has been a fantastic start of the winter season with so much pure powder snow today that we hardly could drive home ;-) with other words, we were quite stuck a couple of times! Have a lovely evening and hope you're feeling rested. 

Coziest hotel in Switzerland

We have just arrived at my favourite Swiss hotel, Hotel Guarda Val. We're having a little weekend get-away... This is the coziest hotel I know in Switzerland - an old farm in the middle of the alps and transformed into a luxury spa hotel with two fantastic restaurants. We are going to enjoy one night here and hopefully go skiing tomorrow before we go back home. Have a wonderful weekend <3 

Homely, bright and elegant

Good morning my darlings, It's time for the Swedish home of the week. Right now, this home feels close to my heart, since I recently looked a bit extra at places around Gothenburg. We are thinking of having our wedding in the areas I come from, the wonderful Swedish west coast.

Homely, bright and elegant - This home has 5 rooms and built in from 1896. It's located in one o my favourite areas, the sought after neighborhood of Vasastan. This part of the city is really wonderful with all its lush courtyards. Now I'll take a coffee and answer a couple of mail, I have not that Friday feeling yet but I'll hope it comes soon. This weekend will be spent in Lenzerheide, with fresh snow and cheese fondeu. Yey!

Getting ready for cozy winter days

The winter is about to arrive with it’s cold weather and crisp days, perfect for staying inside and cozy up at home. So when the snow starts falling I want to make sure my home is ready for the winter days – and it’s very easy to add that extra cozy factor, here are my favorite was to make my home warm and “wintrified”.

Candles and lights – make sure to have a pack or two of extra candles at home, - tea lights and taper candles are the ones I use the most in winter. 

Food and wine – stock up while it’s still possible to walk outside. There’s no season like winter seasons with all delicious meals one can have, I’m thinking long brunches, cheese fondu and cookies. And of course not to forget the red wine! A cozy evening with lighted candles is not completed without a delicious glass of red wine (this is just my opinion). 

Wintrify your furniture – I love cozy sheepskins. I have two skins on my balcony (from IKEA) and and two skins in our dining room, the more expensive version that I’ve bought at the action house Lauritz.com 

Winter slippers – maybe the most important of all and amazing to put your feet into in the morning. I have two pairs, one pair of UGG’s with sheep-fur and one with simple leather. 

Winter deco – Bring the season into your home by adding dried leaves and pine cones. It’s for free and adds that extra seasonal colour palette.
