12.02.13 Stockholm Design Tour : Meet the Blogger

Tiina of Elcestockholm guided us on a City Design tour around Stockholm to meet with the owners, designers and artists involved in four of the most inspiration design hotspots in Stockholm. My favourite without a doubt had to be the seductively simplistic and creative office and store of blogger and Stylist Lotta Agaton.

A woman with a love of black and white, who ties black balloons to bottles of San Pellegrino is a woman after my own heart. Her space is functional yet beautiful and i was particularly taken with the pom pom banner mainly for its neutral colour, mixed with metallics – perfect for Kitty’s room one day?! She collects items she loves from around the world to adorn her walls because the space is her office as well as a shop selling items she loves only on a Thursday every week. If you are in Stockholm on a Thursday I highly recommend you take a trip even if just for the inspiration and you’d be hard pushed not to be tempted by some of the fantastic prints she sells. The space is an education in Simple Scandinavian Design.

This is what a party really looks like. Not neat and tidy for long!

In fact there was a little party at every stop. It was awful as you can imagine.

11.02.13 Meet the blogger Stockholm

View of Stockholm from Moderna Museet

Last weekend I said goodbye to my sleeping babies (always hard to do) and flew to Sweden for Meet the Blogger Stockholm. I had the aim of connecting with some wonderful people, learning lots and of course a bit of design shopping in possibly my favourite City in the world. It was my third time in Stockholm and it won’t be my last. I came back relaxed from time away but with a head full of ideas and inspiration.

I stayed at the Scandic Grand Central Stockholm, where the event was hosted and fully enjoyed the laid back design and media vibe with the eclectic and cool furniture and acoustic DJ sets playing in the bar and the lobby of an evening. The event itself began listening to inspiration from the fabulously colourful Will from Bright Bazaar and learning about the creative process from Thea and Toni Neubauer of Sister Mag. A genius pairing of creativity and business and yes they really are sisters.


Meet the blogger Stockholm

I loved meeting the team behind Heart Home magazine. This is the wonderful British homes and design online magazine championing British designers and small British companies and as always learning how much work it takes to create a magazine from scratch and why collaboration is so important. My workshop on photography by the ridiculously lovely Jeanette Lunde of byFryd magazine was a real learning experience and made even more special because I love her work (and her house!) but I was gutted to miss out on Kirsten Jassies Visual Storytelling, though she kindly uploaded her presentation for all those who missed it here.

It’s really enlightening to hang out with so many creative people and so I give a massive shout out to all the new friends I have made and some big love to my travel and dinner buddies. I totally dig this International jetsetter life…I think it suits me.
