EMMAS DESIGNBLOGG

Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Est magazine issue 8 is out!

I just finished reading the latest issue of Est Magazine that was released today, and as soon as I put my iPad down I quickly threw an email to Lynda, their creative director, asking if I could share these pictures with you. Luckily, she said yes! The photos, shot by Marjon Hoogervorst and styled by Anouk B, are from a family home in the red light district of Amsterdam, my favourite city in the world. Every spring I get this strong urge to go back there, and these photos didn't make that longing any weaker. Hmm, perhaps just a little weekend...
Have a look in the magazine for more pictures.
 
 





Slow Fashion House Xmas magazine

If you are like me and prefer the more low key, toned down version of Christmas, then this e-magazine will put you in the right mood for the coming weekend of Advent decorating.
 
 


New Style Generation, an iBook by Iben and Niels Ahlberg

While the print magazine business is having a rough time, new publications are popping up everywhere on the internet, with iPad apps, e-mags, blogs and sites coming from every corner on earth. The digital media is really blooming at the moment! I love the fact that anyone can share their talent online, which makes for a much broader perspective and some more avant garde publications than the ones from the big publishing houses.
 
Interior photographers and stylists Iben and Niels Ahlberg are a Danish duo who have just published their first iBook, New Style Generation, showing five homes in various styles all originated in the Nordic tradition for interior design. Check out their site here, or go directly to iTunes and download the book. This is the first in a series of books, so if you like this one, keep your eyes peeled for the next release.
 
 









Vacation!

It's finally here, vacation time! I'm going to take two weeks off to spend time with family and friends, starting with a trip to Copenhagen. This spring has been crazy, and I have a feeling the coming autumn will be even busier, so I really need some time to relax and reload now. I will try to stay offline as much as possible during these weeks, however I will probably be posting on Instagram (@emfex), so follow me there if you like!
 
I'm leaving you with some images from the brand new online magazine Home & Delicious, published by Icelandic husband-and-wife team Gunnar Sverrison and Halla Bára Gestsdóttir. Halla interviewed me for this first issue, so if you are interested you can read it on page 180-181. There is of course lots of other great contents in the magazine also, like beautiful Icelandic homes, DIY projects, some drool-worthy recipes and nicely written articles (in English), so click over for some good summer reading!
 
 
 
 
 
Take care, enjoy summer and I'll see you again soon!
