Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

RIP Mac + Delfin & Postigo house

I know, it's been more quiet than usual here this week... But I have a really good excuse, I promise. My computer died! It got caught in the middle of a very heated discussion (read wild argument) between me and my boyfriend. He slammed his fist in the table to prove his point, but my beloved macbook happened to be resting right there. There was a loud crashing sound, and now the screen looks like modern art. And no, of course I hadn't done any backup, what do you take me for? A smart person? I'm hoping there is some easy way to connect the computer to another screen or perhaps another computer, because the hard-drive still works, and I don't want to give up on getting all the photos of my kids back just yet. So there I was, with that modern art computer screen, and no way of reaching any of you, and even worse, no way of reading and answering all my emails! Luckily my ex husband came to the rescue and lent me his spare macbook! So now I'm back online, and I really have to find some way of thanking him later, because I literally can't do anything without a computer! I can't work, or read blogs, or keep up with my friends on facebook, and how am I supposed to find any info without a computer? I can't even remember how I did it before the internet... (My boyfriend has promised to buy me a new computer, and he was just as crushed as the screen when he realized what had happened, so don't be mad at him, because I'm not!) But enough about that now.

In other news, I saw this totally amazing home on Yatzer today! It's called the Delfin & Postigo house, and it's crammed full of modern photography and art, and a whole bunch of iconic mid-century furniture. Still it is very airy and calm, with a neutral colour palette, white walls and soaring high ceilings. You will just have to see the photos for yourselves to really get it, so here they are. Enjoy!

    Gud så fint, det här måste vara mitt drömhus! Ojoj, jobbigt läckert!

    Btw, om det bara är skärmen som är trasig så borde det inte vara några problem att koppla laptopen till en vanlig bildskärm till att börja med så att du ser vad du gör och kan flytta över innehållet på datorn till en extern hårddisk eller nåt. Hoppas du får ordning på det, datorproblem är kanske det mest irriterande som finns. =)

    Vilken drömlägenhet! Att datorn går sönder är min mardröm, därför köpte jag nyss en Lacie-hårddisk för att spara allt gammalt material på. Liten och snygg.

    Som så många andra så är det omöjligt att läsa din blogg via Google Reader. SNÄLLA fixa detta eftersom jag inte kommer att läsa din blogg i annat fall, och det vore verkligen tråkigt eftersom du lägger upp så fina bilder.

    Hej, angående din hårddisk så skulle jag föreslå det här http://olnk.se/cabinett eller liknande. Inte mycket svårare än att skruva i en glödlampa. Absolut det minst krångliga alternativet plus att du kan använda din gamla hårddisk som backup efteråt.

    Very thought through. I love the romantic but slightly macabre statement in the last picture.

    @Johanna - Det går fint å lese bloggen til Emma i Google Reader; jeg har ingen problemer. Men når du trykker på "Add a subscriptions" så må du legge til adressa til selve rss-feeden: http://emmas.blogg.se/index.rss (jeg fikk det heller ikke til å virke med bare http://emmas.blogg.se ser du).

    Dining chairs are the ones Charlotte Perriand "selected" for Les Arcs ski-apartments. They are generally atributed to her, but i don't think she designed them, they don't show up on her works catalogues. They still remain anonymous.
