Here are some beautiful photographs from Ikeas new cookbook with a 
difference, Hembakat är bäst (Home baked is the best).   Styled by 
Evelina Bratell and photographed by Carl Kleiner, they are undoubtably
 everywhere on the blogosphere, but I think they are so beautiful that I 
just had to post them...and maybe there is one or two of you that haven't 
seen them yet...

And how are you all on this lovely Monday afternoon? I have had a
 lovely lazy weekend at home, which is my favourite place in the world... 
I so needed a break after such a busy week and it looks as if this week 
is going to be just as busy.  Anyway, I found this beautiful photostream
on Flickr by famapa, I hope you enjoy the cosy, homely pictures as 
much as I did....

I have a new crush...Caroline Swifts online shop.  A very beautiful website
 with very beautiful things that have been styled and photographed to 
perfection.  I just discovered it yesterday - I don't know why I have never
 seen her work before as she is based in the UK, but I LOVE it and will
 be adding many pieces to my christmas list.  She creates simple understated
 garments made with natural materials.  The ceramics are just amazing 
(if you read this blog regularly you know I ♥♥♥ ceramics) The porcelain
 rose tags are on my list as are the medio bowls and the bone china spoons.
  Everything is packaged in white or black packaging depending on what
 you have ordered and what works the best with the colours.... 
Her philosophy (to quote)

 "within the collection, there is an over-riding philosophy. all materials are 
natural, all products are made with integrity, often inspired by nature, every
 piece is unique. each item is packaged in an exquisite and original way to 
pass on the pleasure of slow, understated, timeless luxury"

I have a new crush....

Alex Lewis did the styling for one of my favourite books
'Family Lifestyle Home' by Anita Kaushal and while
taking a look through their portfolio, I found many
more shots to drool over...


Some serious styling from Alex Lewis...

This design studio based in Stockholm is where Johanna Asshoff 
and Hanna Brogård create functional products that tell a story and
 create poetic and dramatic every day scenery.  They met when 
they took their Bachelors Degree in product and furniture design 
at Malmstems, Stockholm and have created prize winning designs
 and exhibitions together ever since.  They have created for some 
big names like Ikea (Alex cabinet) and Lampister and many more...

Don't you just love their beautiful simple work?


Asshoff and Brogård...
