Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Follow that magazine! Connected

I am a true magazine junkie, and while the piles of (often unread) magazines are getting higher around here I am always on the hunt for new and fresh things to read and add to my collection. Today I found a brand new fashion magazine called Connected, produced and published as a graduation project by Pontus Samuel and Nani Lim. I haven't gotten my hands on it yet, but their aestethics and philosophy really appeals to me, so I look forward to reading it asap! Below is a short intro text from their site:

"We have gathered everything we dedicate our lives to in this issue. In this magazine you will not find "the latest trends" or "the best beauty products". You will on the other hand find, for example, a discursive article about the phenomenon "sportswear mixed with high fashion" and a photo editorial about the benefits of wearing black clothes.

The reader will be guided through the content with a simple structure and a clean layout. As the magazine is more informative and non-commercial it approaches the sense of reading a book rather than a magazine. We want you to think about what fashion means to you and what function it holds in your life - and we truly hope that our magazine conveys this message truthfully."


You can follow Connected through their journal, Pinterest or Instagram. Buy the first issue here.

Follow that blogger! Lina Kanstrup

Just in case anyone managed to miss that interior stylist Lina Kanstrup now has her own blog, go check it out! I have been following Lina on Instagram for a while, and love her style. It's so nice to now get to see and read more about her work and everyday life, all illustrated with stylish photos shot by Lina herself.


Follow that hashtag! #stylingcompetition

I just wanted to make sure that you have all seen the awesome styling competition that is going on over on Instagram right now. A whole bunch of my favorite stylists, photographers, bloggers and generally stylish and creative persons are having a friendly styling battle where they post still life pictures every day, and you don't want to miss it!
They use the hashtag #stylingcompetition, so I collected their photos in a little widget here, but do click over to check them all out! (There are photos tagged with #stylingcompetition that are not associated with this challenge, so some unrelated pics may pop up here.) Perhaps you will find some new inspiring people to follow!

Follow that guy! Kristofer Johnsson

Last year I started this category here, "Follow that...", which was meant to be a weekly column where I could share my favorite instagrammers/pinners/bloggers, but it got off to a rough start as one of the first persons I featured turned out to have stolen some of the images in their account. That made me lose my joy for it, and I stopped making these posts. I still liked the idea though, and I think the time has come to blow some life into this column again.
I'd like to start with a feature on Swedish photographer Kristofer Johnsson. He works a lot with Pella, and they always produce stunning images. Kristofer has an instagram account that you can follow here (that is where I found all the pictures for this post), a tumblr here and you'll find his portfolio here. Enjoy!

Follow that girl! Anna Ławska


Pinterest is so full of people sharing their great taste, but sometimes I forget to look for new ones to follow. This week I found a really great pinner though, totally new to me and probably you too! Her name is Anna Ławska and she is a jewelry designer from Poland with a very clean and minimalist style. Below are some samples from a couple of her boards, but do check out the rest too!

Follow that guy! Saša Antić

Have you seen interior stylist Saša Antić's tumblr blog Field Notes? It's one of the most beautiful tumblrs I've seen, and a great place for inspiration.
