Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Spring, please come back!

It's very grey here today, and it has even been snowing! I know some of you probably think that Sweden is cold all year around and that we have polar bears in the streets, but the truth is that this time of year is usually very nice here. May is usually a month for picnics, gardening and getting the first tan of the year. Not so this year. We've had snow, hail and a temperature close to the freezing point for two days now. So today I'm posting some pics styled by Tara Ballantyne and photographed by Trine Thorsen for the latest issue of Norwegian Elle Decoration, to lure spring back!

    Vilka fina bilder. Gillar verkligen.

    Och var tusan tog våren vägen? Här snöade, regnade, haglade, blåste, blixtrade och åskade det för fullt precis. Mysko väder...

    Norska Elle Decoration är riktigt bra. Jag skickade faktiskt in mina uppgifter igår så nu är jag äntligen prenumerant.

    Hoppas att våren kommer tillbaka snart..

    I cannot tell you how much I love your blog. I wish I was Swedish and that my home could look like those on these pages. Could you please tell me what the name and colour of that chair is in the 2nd picture from the top. It the chair with the dowel legs and what looks like a plastic seat. Thanks.
