Levi's Trucker Jacket

More, more, more belated snaps.

These ones are of my dreamy customised Levi’s Trucker jacket, in celebration of 50 years of the style <3

Looking particularly tired seeing as it was the 2nd to last day of fashion month/hell…. lol JK. I so appreciate being able to jet round the world! Just maybe would have rather spent that entire last week in bed :p

I’m wearing: Levi’s jacket and jeans, Etre Cecile X Modern Society hoodie, Reliquia necklaces and earrings, Gucci beret, Dorateymur boots.

The Ideal Christmas Present for Big and Little Travellers!

 

The Ideal Christmas Present for Big and Little Travellers!
By noreply@blogger.com (My Scandinavian Home)

Know anyone (big or small) who loves to travel? If so, you’ll be as happy as my family to discover interactive maps and posters by Bold Tuesday. Not only does the minimalist look and feel look fab on the wall (let’s face it, this is important, right?!) they’re also designed to ‘incite curiosity and travel’ (love this). So far we’ve accumulated the List of Countries poster (seen here in my younger daughter’s room) and more recently the Colour World poster (a black and white world map waiting to be coloured in as you visit new places) in my elder daughter’s room (below!).  I also love the idea of Find It –  a list of all 196 countries in a word search (seek, find, and highlight the countries you’ve visited or use it to choose your next destination) and Go World (a world map sticker poster that serves as a visual reminder of your travels). Simply peel away each visited country to slowly turn the map white. You can even save the countries you’ve visited in a journal. So fun! If you know someone with itchy feet who’d appreciate these this Christmas, you’ll be pleased to hear the team at Bold Tuesday are offering 15% off any item in the shop with the code MSH2017 until 12th December, 2017! Yay!

Photography: Niki Brantmark / My Scandinavian Home. Styling: Sarah Brooks-Wilson

What I ordered:

Wooden Poster Rails (Natural) 70 cm / 28″

And just how cute is the packaging it came in?!

The guys below have been to all kinds of interesting places! It kind of makes me feel inspired to visit a few new countries in 2018 – any tips? I’d love to hear what’s on your travel hit list next year!

Pssst…. a little birdie tells me country and state prints  are also now available in the shop (‘Sverige‘ and the ‘UK‘ being my favourites – but that might me being a little biased!!).

Happy travels (and shopping)!

This post was created in collaboration with Bold Tuesday. All words are my own and I only ever work with brands I love and think you will too. Thank you for supporting the sponsors which make My Scandinavian Home possible.

From Stockholm to Venice Beach: Celebrating Corduroy Appreciation Day with The Cord & Co.

 

From Stockholm to Venice Beach: Celebrating Corduroy Appreciation Day with The Cord & Co.
By Rae Witte

Once considered the poor man’s velvet, corduroy was worn widely by workers, artists, and students throughout America and Europe in the 19th century. Comprised of what looks to be cords laid together, it is soft but also durable and made of the same fabric as velvet, fustian. By the 20th century, corduroy started to shake its reputation for being a signifier of the middle class as it became popularly used in children’s school uniforms, military and sportswear, and later popular among the anti-establishment movement throughout the ‘60s. By the ’80s it returned with a lot of structure before the ‘90s introduced stretch corduroy offering more feminine silhouettes.

“Corduroy is not flat, it’s up and down – that’s what we like about it. Without the lows you cannot experience the highs.”

But, what do you do when you want to disrupt one of the longest standing sartorial lanes in the fashion industry? Founded in Stockholm in 2016, The Cords & Co is the first premium corduroy brand set out to make their own space in the denim world and be the coziest alternative to denim. Founders and former owners of Happy Socks, Mikael Söderlindh and Viktor Tell, wanted to create pants you wear as easily, frequently and as versatile as jeans, but in history-rich corduroy. “By highlighting its long but little known history, working closely with friends and an extended community in each of our flagship city locations, we’re sharing our story of a fabric everyone has a connection to, yet no other brand has dedicated themselves entirely to” says Omar Varts, CEO.

Committed to making the world re-fall in love with the fabric, the launch could not have come at a better time. Corduroy has become a major trend to watch for this fall with both magazines for men and women like GQ and Vogue offering their spin on how to wear it and where to buy it. When brands like Prada and Marni send it down the runway and fast fashion giants Zara hop on a trend, you know it’s going to be something to get on board with early.


With the August launch, five locations opened internationally – two in Stockholm, one in London, one in Paris, the Los Angeles/Venice location, and a New York store is next. In addition to their flagship stores in style capitals across the world, The Cords & Co are available with 20 retailers internationally and online for both women and men and carry not only primarily corduroy pant, top, and jacket options, but also graphic tees, sweatshirts, and hats.

They already started to work with established creatives like famed disco DJ, DJ Harvey as the face of their debut campaign, and artist Barbara Stauffacher Solomon to paint the mural in their Los Angeles location in Venice. In the future, they are planning a collaboration with Alpha Industries.


And, today, on November 11, The Cords & Co. is celebrating. When written numerically, the date 11/11 appears like the pattern of corduroy, thus it has been named National Corduroy Appreciation Day. For this year’s celebration, The Cords & Co. is giving the first 100 customers at each flagship store the opportunity to bring in old (clean) denim they’d like to get rid of and trade it for a pair of Cords for free. Seems likes it’s the best time to take advantage of the impending temperature drop and cozy up your denim collection with denim’s newest (or oldest) alternative and velvet’s most fun sister – corduroy for all! Snag a pair for yourself here.

Warm and Inviting Danish home with Beautiful Textiles

 

Warm and Inviting Danish home with Beautiful Textiles
By noreply@blogger.com (My Scandinavian Home)

Hej hej! I’m always inspired by makers spaces. There’s always something unique and personal about them, don’t you find? The Danish home of Eline Engen is a fine example! Eline lives in a beautiful 200 year old house on the North coast of Funen, Denmark with her husband Brian and children Gustav (14) and Clara (12). Eline works part time in an interior shop and spends the rest of her working hours creating and selling beautiful cushions and clutches made from vintage fabric and textile remnants. Eline describes her home as “very relaxed with lots of textiles, plants and treasures which have been collected over time.” She has a passion for all things vintage, soft colours, and beautiful patterns which she combines with modern pieces in her home. Enjoy the tour!

Photography Eline Engen

What a charming, warm and inviting home, don’t you think? There are so many treasures, but Elin tells me her favourite is the old cabinet where she stores all her vintage textiles before turning them into cushions and clutches.

When it comes to decorating, Elin advises to “stay true to yourself. It’s a cliché but true. Surround yourself with items that mean something to you. Do not buy just to buy. A home is a real home when it reflects the people that live there and when everything is not perfect.” Wise words indeed!

You can pick up Elin’s pretty cushions and clutches over on instagram

If you’re looking for other items seen in Elin’s home, here’s a quick guide:

Sitting room area: poster to the left from Stilleben and to the right Retro Villa (pretty shop alert!), cushions handmade by Eline, Klong halo candle holder (love this), Scarlet Kimono from Lulu’s Drawer (another ‘love’ from me!), Lampe Gras.

Dining room: Era armchair with cane seat, cushion on chair handmade by ElineOffice: William Morris wallpaper, Sinnerlig desk from IKEA.

Thank you so much for the kind permission to show the pictures of your home Eline!

On a completely seperate note, I’m having so much fun in Paris for the launch of my Lagom Book in French. Last night HaperCollins France planned a wonderful cocktail party and I met the  English to French translator and Aude, the designer behind the pretty front cover, among lots of other inspiring people, what a great evening! Merci beaucoup! The man is arriving this evening and we’re going to spend the weekend here – yaaaaay! Hopefully see you tomorrow at Galeries Lafayette for the book signing and DIY session if you’re in town (4 – 6 pm)! 

I hope you’ve got some nice plans?

Have a wonderful couple of days and see you Monday!

“Shorter Days and Waning Light” by Sal Moriarty

 

“Shorter Days and Waning Light” by Sal Moriarty
By Live Fast Mag

In our latest exclusive editorial, we perform a study on the changing shapes of a lazy afternoon with Camille Orders. Stretching and shifting, lazing about from outdoor sunshine to indoor beams of light patterned by the blinds. Photographed by Sal Moriarty, we see the globetrotting editor of Sweets Magazine in her relaxed and natural state – taking a smoke break in the waning afternoon light, lounging in bed, slipping in and out of her most comfortable pieces of clothing.

This photo set functions as a perfect ode to the days getting shorter, and subsequently getting lazier, serving some much needed inspiration for taking it easy. Take a peek at our favorite selects below and keep up with Camille here.

Trend: Greige Walls

 

Trend: Greige Walls
By noreply@blogger.com (Blog Milk Shop)

White walls are almost becoming extinct. As the year wears on, more and more of my friends seem to be getting weary of their walls and trying to find a middle ground between the straightforward trend of whites and the color palettes of late, which are filled with pinks, indigos and desaturated (and gorgeous, I might add) greens.

Greige is the perfect example of an in-between. It is not grey but it’s also not beige. That’s why it’s become increasingly popular–and it deserves to be for its diversity and subtleness. Greige is the color that says “I’m grounded, reliable, wholesome but also unexpectedly classy.”. To me, it’s one of the best colors of the year; it matches perfectly with light woods… and let’s be honest, it’s quiet a needed break from whites.

If you, like me, are not quite ready for the bold-color movement, consider this for your end-of-year home refresh.

Niki is in Paris for the launch of the French version of her book Lagom (Le juste équilibre) – if you’re passing Galeries Lafayette between 4 – 6 pm this Saturday,  pop in for a signed copy and join in with a fun DIY session! I believe she’s sharing the adventure over on instagram stories too!

Beautiful images by: Evalotta Sundling and Elin Kickén, with thanks!

Tour a Beautiful Sitting Room in a Brooklyn Brownstone

 

Tour a Beautiful Sitting Room in a Brooklyn Brownstone
By noreply@blogger.com (My Scandinavian Home)

Today is a bit of a squeeze! I’m home in Malmö for one day – squished between my return from London and my departure for Paris tomorrow (I have to keep pinching myself to check that I’m actually heading off to one of my favourite cities tomorrow! It’ll be my first ever ‘physical’ book tour (I’m there to celebrate the launch of Lagom – Le nouvel art de vivre suédois) super exciting, but lots to prepare!). Priority number one though: taking 15 minutes out of the day to sit, relax and drool over a beautiful home. I hope you’ll join me?! Today’s lovely tour comes in the shape of an elegant, serene sitting room in a Brooklyn brownstone captured by one of my favourite photographers, New York based Nicole Franzen. To me, the space is a perfect blend of old and new, minimal yet warm, sleek yet comfortable. I love the brown and gold colour palette too. What a wonderful room?!

 Photography: Nicole Franzen

Oh how I love this room, the light is just stunning too!

Is there anything that stands out to you?

A few items to note: Flos pendant lightFrama 9.5 chair, Cinnamon project brass incense burner, this lovely mustard waffle blanket is similar, source a bust sculpture here and a low antique wooden stool here.

In case you’re also a little bit in love with Brooklyn brownstones – there are plenty in this archive (if this post comes up first just scroll passed to reach the others!). What a great little corner of the world!

Have a lovely day!
