Ellinor Stigle is a Swedish Photographer based in New York. Her style is minimalistic and unisex with a lot of black and structured pieces. It looks like comfort plays a key role in the way she dresses and the weather is not an obstacle for being stylish yet appropriately put together.
These beautiful images are of Marie Olsson Nylander, interior stylist home (by the way is now up for sale). 2 years ago I posted these of her previous home. I love how she mixes different styles. I could so see myself move in:-)
Come December, all the sparkly things arrive in the shops. I'm not so keen on too much glitter and shine but it's festive and little goes a long way when your whole outfit is monochrome (as in all black), it's ok to add a bit of bling :)
Beautiful French actress Rebecca Dayan wears a lot of skirts and dresses, short or long, often with slits and her style is generally very feminine and very pretty. Black and white are her go to colors but never boring as she's good at accessorizing with hats, scarves, metallic boots and bags in contrasting colors to the rest of her outfits.
My plan is to finish the Christmas cleaning and put up the Christmas decorations next weekend, except for the tree, that can wait a bit longer. As I have mentioned before I don't decorate much, except for one room in the house, my eleven years old, where it looks like Christmas wonderland. For the rest of the house I want to have everything clean but a wreath is a must.Here you can learn to make your own wreath.
I am such a minimalist especially when it comes to decorating for Christmas. Although I do not decorate much my self am I quite passionate about it. I have a white advent - light I have not used in years, so when I saw this picture, I got the idea to spray (or paint) it black.
As I have mentioned before am I a big fan of Katie Quinn Davies. Kate is one of the best food photographer / stylist out there and she writes her own recipes to. Check out her blog hereHer latest book What Katie ate at the weekend came out last month.I can't wait to get my hands on it!
These light-boxes from the Stockholm based company Bxxlght are brilliant! I have to get one over my bed... or have one custom made (for every room in my house!). You can order them online and they are affordable. A small lightbox costs € 410 and the bigger one € 510. Order themhere - I warn you it's like getting a tattoo - You'll hope you won't regret your choice :) Let's get creative....
Moroccan rugs are traditionally hand-woven in Morocco. They come in many different patterns and color. The Beni Ourain tribe from the Rif Mountains make their wool rugs more often in neutral shades and ordered geometric shapes which is a perfect match to the minimialistic style of Scandinavian homes. I love these rugs, they are pretty and cozy and would add more warmth to my petit living room.
2 MAD et LEN hand poured scented candles come from the south of France. The candles contain essential oils and come in a beautiful rustic brushed black steel vessel. I adore scented candles and would love to add this one to my home.
3 Crema Al Polline from Florence's Santa Maria Novella 400 year old stunning Apothecary. Who can resist that? Florence is one of my favorite cities and I cannot believe that I only discovered this gem recently!
