Grateful to be alive another year and for all the amazing people in my life ❤️. The little things I used to take for granted bring so much joy: filling my lungs with fresh sea breeze, drinking in the colours of nature and hearing the lapping waves while watching the Brahminy predatory kites glide through the clear blue sky. Also, observing a chameleon in mid camouflage 🦎 #birthdayvibes
My #dutch #amaryllis in full bloom 🌸 #springishere
#Frantzen French toast topped with #truffles and a lovely Swedish cream #cheese 👌✨
Didn’t know these were #chrysanthemums. Love the different shades 🧡💛💜
#reading and #gardening. My two favourite activities. I knocked over my Dutch Amaryllis flower bud 🌺 and decided to help it bloom 😎
Love this functioning four arm tap (looks like he’s wearing a Roman hat).
Shrove Tuesday calls for Swedish #semla - last festive treat before #Lent
The @modernamuseet has a wonderful collection of works through the decades, including Henri Matisse’s colourful cut out mixed media paintings. Interesting to see how Yayoi Kusama’s earlier works in the 1960s began as bulbous potatoes ➡️ (potato suit) @arkdesc next door #stockholmdesignweek is showcasing #feminist themed works by local designers.
Aesthetics are subjective, but I guess it is reasonable for me to feel that the Swedes should continue designing wonderful furniture and leave #Couture to the French and Italians (and these days British designers leading the creative direction of big fashion houses)... 🙊 #guardiantravelsnaps
Thanks @visitstockholm! Your social content strategy is Ace! 💫 which made discovering the city and navigating #designweek a pleasure. Haven’t had so much fun in a while and so nice to catch up with old friend @ericafusaro #solotravel #wanderlust #guardiantravelsnaps
Swedish #architect Gunnar Asplund’s #library with shelves of books in various languages, excellent acoustics (for concerts) #nordicclassicism • Found my tribe who love books and libraries as much as I do; long queue of adults and children outside in sub zero temperature waiting for the library to open. 📚 #guardiantravelsnaps
In love with those leaf lamps 🍃 ❤️Highlights for me at the fair include Italian artists and designers that anchored the show: Paola Navone’s “Tham ma de” (which in Thai means everyday, but unfortunately sounds and means 😱 in Mandarin) and @lucanichetto ‘s ratatouille bar (💛 his pastel coloured teapot collection) #guardiantravelsnaps
Breathtaking views ❄️ #guardiantravelsnaps #darlingescapes
