*tatata*The ceramic Polaroid camera from Anyhow goes to Linda, who wanted to put it next to the polas from her parents honeymoon.

One full set of white jersey bedlinen for a double bed, worth around $540, from Beach House Company. I love jersey sheets, but they have been very hard to find here in Sweden, so we only have one set in my home. And now there is a queue for that set, because every time I change the sheets my kids are standing behind me asking if it's their turn to have "the super cosy bedlinen" this time! So now we have made a waiting list. I'm telling you, a few people in this house will be very jealous of the person who wins this set...
Handmade Ceramic Polaroid Camera, worth $65, from Anyhow.se. Anyhow is a beautiful webshop, with lots of stylish things to make your house a home. Many of the products are handmade, others are carefully sourced throughout Europe on one of the owner's many travels.
A set of two Fika cups, worth £18, by Sandra Isaksson from Isak Design. Sandra was one of the first designers I wrote about on this blog, and I have followed her throughout the years, excited to see her launch new products each season. What started out as a couple of trays and posters is now a whole range of wallpaper, childrens clothes, fabrics, stationery, tableware, prints and books!
A set of two round boxes with lids from Dixie, worth approx. $57, provided by Cosas, a Swedish webshop with shipping inside the EU. The boxes measure 24 and 20 cm in diameter, and are made of recycled magazines but with a steady core of wood veneer.
A print with a motif from the Swedish milk cartons! This is a poster, size 50x70 cm/19.6x27.5 inches, worth around $28, generously gifted from Vackra Väggar, a webshop filled with cool things for your walls. I know foreign readers love this design for some strange reason, but I like it too, because to me nothing says "childhood" like this cow, and I think I share that feeling with many Swedes who grew up in the 80's and 90's.
Last but not least, a lovely Friends of Violet poster by Studio Violet, worth €21! I know you all love Camilla Engman and Elisabeth Dunker of Studio Violet, so this doesn't really need an introduction. The size of the poster is 50x70 cm/19.6x27.5 inches and it's printed on 170 gr off-white paper.
So go ahead now, just make a wish in the comments, and the ones with the best motivations will win!
As a short break in between the Furniture Fair updates, I want to show you this photo that just popped at me on my screen.
I can't quite put my finger on what it is with this dining room that makes me feel so extremely at home and relaxed, but I can tell you that I love it. I believe it has something to do with the perfect mix of raw, modern and traditional. The unfinished rough wooden table and stool combined with high shine white floors and old fashioned rag rugs, striped table cloth and blue painted cabinets... And I don't even like the colour blue!
