From our room when we stayed at lovely 1 Hotel in Miami. Right now I’m thinking of our bedroom in Sweden. I want to do a headboard with clapboard/panels like this, from the floor up to the ceiling, and because there won’t be lots of space for sideboards, with shelfs on the sides like this: (from Pinterest)
Instead of horizontal paneling maybe do herringbone pattern… I can already hear my builder Jens trying to talk me out of that idea, since it will be more time consuming, hehe…
These two pictures are from Restoration Hardware’s new herringbone collection, just beautiful!!
Also. I’m in love with this chair at 1 Hotel ♥ I need to text our friend Benny who works there, to see if he can find out where it’s from…
Not an ugly place to spend the day! Love the Swedish west coast!
My boys ♥
After Hamburgö we drove to Fjällbacka, just a 7 minutes drive. My mom just told me I’ve been here, hmm no memories of that…
Shellfish soup at Bryggan, yum! I wish I had some picture from the harbor, but when we got here we were all hungry and Oliver was running around like crazy, haha! But I made sure I got ten minutes of speed shopping before we left :)
I just love the west coast in Sweden, it’s so beautiful!! Yesterday we spent the whole day at Liseberg. If you are from Sweden no explanation is needed, but it’s a big, cool, amazing amusement park in Gothenburg. I’ve to go thru my phone to see if I got some good pictures!
Ok, the weather could have been warmer… but what a magical day! We are visiting our friends Joakim and Lisa, and today they took us to the island Hamburgö!
The kids were climbing for hours.
Cousin Melker (my nephew) is with us ♥
Joakim taught the boys how to fish crabs, so much fun! (I need to buy new shoes for Oliver… they are too small, holes and with yoghurt stains…)
We ended the day in Fjällbacka, another place I fell in love with. More pictures to come tomorrow.

Hello my friends! This lobby at 1hotel, come on!! The mix of concrete, all the white and the wood… love everything about it. And the cool wall in the background is made of moss!
Cosy cosy! The table, yes please.
A big extra plus for this hotel – its eco friendly. Like all materials, food is organic and locally grown, triple filtered water everywhere etc. More of that to the world!!
Cool elevator entrance. Not cool at all if you ask Oliver. When we were here with the family, we all walked out on our floor, except for him. Oh he panicked when the door closed, poor little thing. I went all the way down to make sure he couldn’t leave the building, had a worker get his elevator down and the door opened up and he was NOT there… oh mini heart attack… Johan found him after 7 minutes on another floor, probably felt like a lifetime for him. I have never seen him so sad, he cried all day on and off and said -door closed I missed you ♥
Today -office day! My worst… but need to get organized with papers and everything else before we go home to Sweden. I needed a break from that, you know this blog is like therapy for me :) I was just on the phone with our bank for an hour, had an issue and they kept saying it shouldn’t be like this and me I KNOW just fix it!! Things like that drives me nuts!!
Time to finish up before I need to pick up Eddie-Bo. Doctor appointments (just 4 and 6 year old check ups) and a play date are on our afternoon schedule!
After two evenings with amazing fancy restaurants… Friday night at Milos -with mediterranean seafood, absolutly fantastic food, and Saturday night we went to Komodo -a super cool place with great ambiance and Asian fusion food, love!! (also with a night club on the third floor if you like that)… we decided to have a casual Sunday night sharing lots of different street food. That didn’t go so well, haha, but we ate at three different places at least :)
We started across the street from our hotel at Continental, ate delicious spring rolls filled with beef and some insanely good cheese… followed by a stop at Sultan (A must when I’m in Miami) where we spilt a no 14, a plate with kebab, gyro, tzatziki etc… yum!
After a long nice walk, but with no street food we ended up at the hotel Delano!
OMG their tuna pizza with truffle might be the best I’ve ever eaten… can’t stop thinking about it, haha!!
And this is Delano’s pool, love the design here as well! My friend Glitzy stayed here last year. So glad she gave me a tour of the hotel when we met up!
We are now sitting on the flight back to Detroit (it only takes 2h 40 min!) I’m so thankful and filled with inspiration and energy after this amazing weekend. Thank you Miami, hubby, Marc and Jana -you are the best, love you all!!
