My Marrakech

This is one of many pictures I snapped in Marrakech,
a dream city for any interior girl. Lamps, Moroccan
cushions, spices, gorgeous house decor, good taste etc,
the list is long...
I loved the warm colors everywhere, think spices;
red, orange and a countless variations of sienna.
But this rather damaged building catch my eye and
its colours are more cold, but still so inspiring
with the worn colours and structures.

London calling

When I walk around in big cities, like London
on these pictures, I am always fascinated
by the great mix of old signs, half-done
construction jobs, mixture of colors, mixed
together on a citywall to often take shape
into a nice photography.

Berlin flat

I am both inspired and overwhelmed after a weeks
visit this summer at some friends flat
in Berlin. The interior was really pure retro
style throughout the whole 3 rooms appartment.
Real design from earlier decades, simple- but
still so perfect all through..

Junk transformation

I´ve got this white, rather dull-looking and
out-of-date refrigerator for almost nothing.
My plan when I got it was to paint it turqouis,
to make it a bit fifties looking to match the
rest of my kitchen.
It was important to clean the surfaces so the
result will look like its never has been painted
at home but has its original colour - all dust,
dirt, smoke, grease, food etcetra must be cleaned
off, and I´ve finished it all with some fine
sandpaper, and wiped off the dust from the sandpaper
with a clean damp rag.
First, use a small fine roller and paint a thin layer
of litter kent oil-based primer. Then take several
layers, applied very thinly for each subject with
benga paint or oil-based paint that is very shiny,
I`ve got my local paint store to mix the exact color
I wanted for my refrigerator.

Purple hacienta

Look at the colour on this house I snapped
in Barcelona! A little lovely purple hacienta
in the middle of the city...simply adoreable,
can I move in soon?
