• Annaleena Leino-Karlsson

    I’ve had Annalena’s home tour saved in my bookmarks for months now and as the stars seemed to have aligned this weekend and I got some time to myself (and some good reads) I decided to consume a handful of articles as if there wasn’t another weekend on the horizon.

    In case you’ve been living under a rock or the online world isn’t one of your priorities (kudos to you) . . . let me introduce you to the master stylist, vanguard photographer and genius product-and-everything-else designer that is the one and only Annaleena Leino-Karlsson. I could very well cut this post short and the images of her home would speak for themselves—but no, I cannot just shut up about something that has positively and massively impacted me, as I’m sure you know by now.

    Annaleena started as most of us do. A blogger with an immense passion for (in her case) interior, product design and minimalism. A short while after making her introduction into this world, she started creating her own products and soon getting recognized for her effortless style and work, which if I may say, are well worth our admiration.

    Her home intentionally speaks of what she’s all about. Not only is it unique—I mean, how couldn’t it be when she designs most of her art and pieces?—but her home is also a therapeutic work of art. Based in Ekerö, Sweden, this is one of those tours that get people talking. We all want to know the story behind it: the what’s, why’s, who’s and where’s.

    This open-concept home has been transformed into the perfect atmosphere for Annaleena’s work—the works of art of the minimalist design houses we all love and those of like-minded pioneers. The hall was converted into a private showroom for Analeena, while the stunning open living room combines some of her treasures: The classic leaf lamp by muuto, a large leather sofa, a stunning piece by Kristiina Haataja and her family-inherited piano make a perfect composition for the stunning nature-filled backdrop.

    From Annaleena’s front door to her jaw-dropping concrete patio, this home is one for the books. That is why I insist that minimalism is worth a try—It simply allows space for true greatness.

    This beautiful sea-facing apartment, located in Mumbai, is the brainchild of Case Design. The partnership between this fantastic team and the owner resulted in a relaxing-yet-character-filled home that’s deserving of an award for their majestic use of locally-sourced materials and products.

    Case Design focused on making this home speak of the surrounding culture, affording peace and respite in a chaotic city—bringing in texture, recycled Burma tweak, local marble, Makrana tiles and a stunning collection of objects designed by them with natural materials.

    The Rolling Round Light makes an appearance on the bedside table and it’s just as functional as it is a piece of art. The round table lamp relies on its carefully calibrated center of gravity to delicately balance and find rest. A gentle nudge sets it in slow motion to roll, sway and eventually return to its original position.

    What a stunner this entire project is, a true oasis of inspiration for the minimalists who appreciate color and craftsmanship. Don't you think?

    Jotun has quickly become a leader in Decorative Paints and Performance Coatings around the world. Though the company has been established for a long time in Norway and neighboring countries, they expanded throughout the world at the start of the millennium.

    The famous brand has recently launched the new Lady Color Chart for 2018 entitled 'Rhythm of Life', making reference to a home’s own soul. The collection besets three different color schemes: Silent Serenity, City Motions and Lush Garden. Making a total of 32 stunning matte and luxurious shades inclusive of everyone’s personal style and needs.

    From the flawless collection, Lush Garden stands out for me as a favorite. Reflecting my own desire to connect with nature whilst residing in the concrete jungle—The palette recalls the nuance of the outdoors with colors like 'Evening Green', 'Golden Bronze' and my top #1 'Laurel'.

    Have you chosen your favorite color for 2018?
  • Photography © Per Jansson This beautifully renovated loft located in Stockholm is a display of light and well-thought design. From top to bottom, from room to room, this home is clearly a project of love. I'm particularly attracted to the openness of this home, the clever use of space, kitchen floors and intricate pieces of art on the walls. It's almost making me regret having already bought paint for my living room walls... Almost.

The Art Direction and Photography for this project is flawless and clearly speaks of the company's vision to transform your home for the change of Season.
