My new Tumblr


I wanted to share my Tumblr with you all:

Have a look and follow me if you like.




As you may have noticed I've really slacked off this week. I'm in need of a blogging break, or more so, a computer break. I often feel like too much of my time is occupied on the computer, which is hard to remedy living so far away from so many family and friends. But things change and perhaps I'll be back here soon. Take care, Lisa Xo


Stig Lindberg: Textiles

Textiles to breathe life into any space. Floor to ceiling curtains, pillowcases, bedding, or merely stretched as canvas and hung on the wall. Lindberg was one of Sweden's most prolific designers. In addition to textiles he tried his expert hand at pottery, illustration, industrial design, ceramics and glass. Lindberg's work perfectly encapsulates the fresh faced idealism of the fifties.


Rock On

Stones from California's shores hand cast in bronze.


Piet Hein Eek

Scrap wood given a new lease on life.
A modern interpretation of the classics,
redefining the true worth of materials.


Life Lately

Thoughtful, beautiful birthday gifts, ice skating on the Baltic sea, homemade peanut butter cookies, and who can resist a black liquorice donut? I had to have a bite out of pure curiosity, and it was delicious. This weekend for the first time in months, the temperature rose to a steady 0 degrees. The snow is melting and a cloud of steam is hanging heavy over the city. I'm more than ready to retire my squat winter boots in favour of my much more elegant navy knee high Le Chameau rubber boots (that is if you can even call rubber boots elegant, but you'll have to forgive me since it's been a really long winter!). Bring on the slush!


Treasure Trove

I couldn't resist reposting these images from Design*Sponge. They illustrate the interiors I'm naturally drawn to, lots of found objects and natural elements in an easygoing state. Sibella Court is the owner of 'The Society Inc.', a store in Sydney which every 3 months takes on an entirely different theme. Exteriors and interiors get painted, including the floor and front door, and the items within the shop are curated to match the new 10-colour colour palette. Sounds like my dream come true. The store's website is equally gorgeous, and if Sydney was in my reach, I'd be making a pilgrimage. Sibella is also the author of 'etcetera ect', an incredible book that I can't wait to have the chance to get lost in. Apparently it's only available in Anthropologie stores at this time, so if there's one near you I highly suggest going on the hunt.


Sonja Hahn-Ekberg

Densely wrapped in radiant silk, Hahn-Ekberg's sculptural neck pieces became her trademark.


A Happy Birthday

Yesterday was my birthday,
and Mikko and I had friends over to drink, dine and play a little Uno.
Thanks for your great company Julia & Timo!



A nice afternoon spent having lunch with a friend, browsing the latest Vanessa Bruno, and getting spellbound in a cozy nook of an antique store. I may have to go back for those earrings tomorrow!


Pants Please

Legs shrouded in a wisp of chiffon, cotton crepe, or sheer lace,
primly billowing atop smart socks and incredible shoes.
I want this look for my very own, with or without the socks.
