Todays one pic is from the u la la studio in Copenhagen that belongs to the talented Danish ceramicist Julie Bonde. I visited her studio with Emma while we were working in Copenhagen and I was blown away by the beautiful creativity that both she and her studio radiated. Her work makes me think of nature and stones, and she has used nature as a reference point for the pieces, creating glazes and textures that turn them into large, but very tactile pebbles. Love!
Here´s some of my all time favorites for the new year 2014, but there is more. Posting new ones next week.

For me candle holders are so Christmas and just the thought that it's almost Christmas makes me want to get/make some new ones. So after I saw this cool DIY that Ivania did on her blog with plaster I wanted to do a new candle holder for the Christmas with plaster instead of concrete.
The mold I used for pouring the plaster in was just a shoebox cover and the copper tube caps for the lights are from a hardware store, but my previous candleholder that I did with hexagon nuts (here) could also work. All you need is,
/a shoebox cover
/copper tube caps size 2,2
/Cover the shoebox cover with plastic wrap to make it waterproof and to get the plaster out of the mold when it is dry.
/Plan in advance where you want your candle holders (copper tube caps) to be.
/Blend your plaster mixture and pour it into the mold. I used for this 9 dl plaster and 3 dl water.
/Press gently the copper tube caps in the plaster mix.
/Let it dry for at least 2 hours. Use sandpaper to smooth the edges if needed.
There are some major changes going on that I already told this weekend at my instagram (annaleenashem). We're moving back to Stockholm in January! We have been planning for this move a long time and I t´s going to be very positive, even I love the Swedish west coast where I have been living over 10 years. I´m so exited about moving back to my old home town and not least I´m looking forward to be able to work more as a interior stylist, net working with creative people and getting new work contacts. My online shop annaleena.se/shop moves with us and it will function as usual. I´ll tell you more about the move and our new home later.
I`m on my way to Bergen Norway this weekend to participate Interiör/boligmesssen where I have been invited to have a popup stand. I´m so exited, and I´m celebrating the fair by offering free shipping for all the nordic countries and 20% discount on the clothing hangers on my online shop! The offer is valid only on Saturday the 19th and Sunday the 20th!
The first three to place an order on saturday morning on 9 am will also receive this white stone pyramid that will arrive to the shop before Christmas. So don´t miss out! If your are going to the fair on saturday please stop by!
I´m starting today a new column here on my blog called one pic, inspired by my blogger colleague Emma. This first picture is taken in our bedroom. It represents everything I feel right now. Minimal, Japanese, and tranquility.

I just discovered from Lotta Agaton´s blog that a new agency LINK DECO has been launched in Stockholm. The thing that makes the agency so special is that link deco is the first agency in Sweden solely representing interior photographers and interior stylists. Under the same roof. That´s really awesome news. What a dream for all interior geeks browsing though lots of inspiration, without leaving the website you are on.
