What's up with Swedish designers? They manage to do it so so right! Like Rika, who has made these star-embellished leather bags for a couple of years now and I can't get tired of them, it's so simple and appealing..aaaargh.


You have probably noticed the new sideboard, Trollsta (top image), from the new Ikea- collection, it's such a greatlooking piece of furniture, and it's made by the Swedish design-trio jba-design (Jantze, BrogÄrd, Asshoff). I hope they do more pieces for Ikea (so I can afford it..).
Look at the chandelier, Pearl, they made for lampister, a pure white oversized brooch. Lovely.

funky sofa

In nytimes this week there were a tour of the house of pamela bell, one of the original partners of kate spade. Her house is beautiful, but the best part is this; she let her daughter invite her class to decorate their muslin covered sofa. And look at the result!

ps. do try the nytimes chocolate-chip cookie recipe, it turned out magnificent!
