This saturday we’ll be spending the day at a spring market in Hornstull, celebrating the 1 year anniversary of their mall! We’ll be selling products from some of our talented designers. You’ll find gorgeous children’s garment by Darling oh my, the new released collection Virrvarr by Sägen and of course posters. Come and visit us if you’re nearby! We’ll be having a competition where you can win a nice price.
The market will be open 11am-5pm on Saturday April 26th. You’ll find us at Hornsbruksgatan, close to the mall and the subway Hornstull.
Treat yourself with a beautiful and creative home office! Match your supplies, sort all of that small stuff that’s always laying around in different baskets and boxes and write down all of your dreams and plans in beautiful notebooks.
Match your workplace by spray painting your supplies. We painted our puncher and penholder in a dark coral shade to match our favorite notebooks. The paperclip tin got a grey coat of colour and the storage boxes also got updated We wrapped the top one in gift wrapping and the bottom one got painted in a light apricot shade.
This is the tray Trassel by Erika Tubbin that also can be used as a cake plate. A perfect tray for every occasion with the graphic pattern Trassel that’s Erikas characteristics and appears on many of her products. I think it’s timeless and fun!
Frida Ramstedt is the driven entrepreneur behind the blog Trendenser.se, one of Sweden’s oldest and most loved blogs in interior design. We asked her to give us some tips on how we can give our homes more spring feelings. And this is what she said:
As much as I love the snow and the winter season (being “Norrlänning” and all, coming from the cold parts of Northern Sweden) I must admit that spring has a special place in my heart. Nothing beats the feeling of anticipation (and energy!) that comes along with the crisp light and the longer days this time of the year.
It always makes me look at my home in a different way. After months of cosiness and layers of wool blankets, dark colours and lit candles I want to start off on a new page. Cleaning the slate. Picking out a few fresh items to make my home feel just as light, bright and energized as I do. An easy trick to make yourself fall in love with your home all over again is to give your sofa a pillow treatment, and to add some new decorative items on a table, shelf or drawer. It might work just as well for your spring feelings as a few sun beams on your nose tip. Here are my favorites for spring 2014!
We asked Johanna of Formelle Design to show us what a day in her life looks like. She kindly took us behind the scenes using Instagram. As you can tell, she is very stylish and everything seems to match, even down to the ruler in her office! To get a better look at her work, visit her profile on Nordic Design Collective.

We’re heading into the Easter weekend, a weekend typically spent in the countryside, relaxing and spending time with family and friends. And what is a better way to do that, than playing a game? Standing card are launching a new game called Nordiskt Designquiz (in swedish only), to test your friends and yourself on your design knowledge. How much do you really know about Alvar Aalto or Josef Frank, and what is the name of the famous floral pattern from Marimekko?
Adding art to your walls is a simple way to create a personal touch or a brand new feel to your room. Select posters with a similar style our colour scheme and use frames with one colour to create a calm mood.
