One week in Landskrona


This week we are in Landskrona, a town by the coast in Skåne, Sweden.
We are borrowing an apartment, close to the kids cousins, who live here. Frank wants to play with them 24/7 so it´s very nice being so close to them for once. Our plan is to hang out, go to the beach and visit a carnival in town.

PS. On our way here we thrifted a Playmobile ship for Frank, he´s been wanting one for a long time.

Roses in July


There are so many roses in our garden this time of year. They look good with pretty much anyting: a pink wall, a brown glas vase, an old TV or a small skeleton boy. You name it.


PS. You tend to ask so… the wall shade is “Puderrosa” from Beckers and the cabinate is painted in “Ballerina” also from Beckers. And the bear side-table is from Urban Outfitters.

Dos Visits Hej-Regina in Malmö, Sweden


I´ve been wanting to photograph this home for a long time. And this week it finally happend. Agnes, or you might know her by her blog alias “Hej Regina“, sent me a mail saying that they are moving and asked if I could take the pictures for the upcoming sale. A gladly excepted.

The sun was shining upon the city of Malmö that day, the birds were chirping and people moved slowly on the sidewalk were I parked. A couple stopped for a kiss right beside me as I called Agnes to buzz me up. Agnes let me in and then continued to work on her macbook in the kitchen as I walked around clicking my camera at everything that caught my eye.
Agnes has so many thrifty and creative solutions in her home and I´m def. stealing a few of them. Like the cloud carpet by the door, the empty globe decorated with triangles and I need to get a indoor hammock asap.

Have a look I think you´ll like this home!


One loveseat and one IKEA Karlstad sofa. Notice how she´s raised two of the bookshelfs from the floor with a base and left one on the floor.


…here is a closer look.

Thank you for having me over.
Good luck with the new house.

Wednesday Morning – and some Justin


It is so warm and nice today. We need to go to the beach as soon as we are done working.

But first let´s watch the “Where Are U Now” video (that FINALLY came out yesterday) 30 times together.
Such a great freaking song.


Now all I need is for the Feeling myself video to get on Youtbe and then I´m all good.

Monday Morning


Good morning.
This weekend was spent sorting, selling and getting rid of stuff.

I went through our house like a tornado, looking for things to sell, leaving nothing untouched. I sorted books, toys, clothes and various boxes with random things. (Since Frank has seen Toy Story 2 he is terrified for his toys at this very moment). Viola and I sold some things at a local fleamarket, you know the kind where you set up your own table. We made 1000 sek (about 100 dollars). That really whet my appetite and encouraged me to continue. Back home I started listing things online, and one thing after another got sold.

Such a satisfying feeling. I´ve been putting this off for years.

(S I D E T R A C K)
WOW! Do you know what just happend?! As I´ve told you before I´m currently listening to . Erkin Koray – Türkü while I work. This has become quite a routine for me and now I really crave that Turkish melody as I´m working. And you know how Youtube randomly chooses videos for you that resembles what you´ve searched for, right? well now youtube played me this tune Mazhar Ve Fuat, that I´ve never heard before but I sure as hell have heard it sampled, in Action Bronson´s marvellous Easy Rider. (That I wrote about here)
(I know a little googling could have told me about this sampling, but it was a nice surprise to have it just turn up on me like this)

Sorry about the sidetrack from my original post but blogging is just like life, it can throw you in an unexpected direction.
So here you go: Action Bronson´s Easy Rider, a treat for the ear and the eye.

Picking up some TVs


Viola and I took a little roadtrip today. I had “won” 3 old TV-sets on an online aution and I had to pick them up in Sjöbo. It´s about 30 minutes ride from our house. I brought my camera along and we stopped here ant there and posed for pictures in the summer sceanary. jennyfromdosfamily2-5349

It was so worth it. Just look at them- so cute. They can´t pick up any of our modern channels but we are going to hook them up with some old console, like the Nintendo NES.

PS. This week I´m playing this song a lot. Erkin Koray – Türkü

Our next door beekeeper

jennyfromdosfamily2-3596-3Our neighbour is a beekeeper. He let me take some pictures of his bees last week.
The bees are so fascinating, very busy and devoted to their queen. jennyfromdosfamily2-3617

Workers and drones.


The buzzing from the bees makes a pretty soundtrack to our landscape.




Honey in the basement. Sweet

Space saver – combine a wardrobe and a staircase leading up to a ceiling hammock


Today I want to show you the makeover we did when we turned our office into Viola´s room. The room has a high ceiling with visable beams. In other words perfect for a hammock-like nest. Or as Isabelle would say: “It would be a crime NOT putting a net up there”
The room is very small and the only place we could fit a wardrobe was on this very wall, so I decided to combine a staircase with the wardrobe, built from left-over kitchen cabinets, ikea dressers and MDF boards.


This is the before picture: Our office. (such a mess)


We emptied the room and gathered all the furniture from the basement that we could use. (The 3 white cabinets used to be a part of our old kitchen in our old apartment, and the 2 small dressers are ikea Malm bedside-tables)


Then we built the wardrobe/staircase around them. We bought 3 cabinet doors from Ikea (it was cheaper than MDF board) for 3 units. At the end we made a small stepping stool also out of MDF. Lastly we added steps on top. jennyfromdosfamily2-3333-3

Viola and I decorated the inside of the wardrobe with a cute role of wallpaper that we found at a fleamarket.jennyfromdosfamily2-3337-3 jennyfromdosfamily2-3339-3jennyfromdosfamily-08

My dad, the car-painter painted all the fronts for us in the color Lindblomma from Beckers. And we painted the steps with Körsbärsblom from Beckers. (they work so well together)
The wallpaper did not last all the way so one cabinet got a splash of watermelon pink inside. Color Vattenmelon from Beckers.

The net is from ScanCord and the soft wall to wall carpet is from Mässinteriör and the wall is painted with chalckboard paint.

PS: Viola´s room was featured in our (mine and Iabelle´s) book Room for Kids.
PS2: Want more kid room inspo? Check out Isabelle´s show here !

What about the garden?


Well let me tell you. It´s been pouring down the last month here in Sweden and everything is soaked and pretty depressing in the garden.
And sure, flowers need water to grow but hey, they need some freaking sun as well. Anyway here are some old, but sunnier posts from my garden:
Garden stuff easy as 1-2-3
Garden stuff easy as 4-5-6

PS: Viola, above, is wearing a headpiece from her grandmother Christin´s garden (that somehow always look great, just like Viola.)

Photographing The Catalog of Swedish brand Geggamoja


Twice a year I photograph for the Swedish kids brand Geggamoja. One collection for summer and one for winter. Over the years I´ve found some really wonderful kids that are kind enough to help me out during these sessions. Right now I´m in the middle of  shooting the Spring/Summer catalog of 2016 and this weekeend I´ll have a total of 15 kids + parents in the studio.

I can´t show you the pictures from this week, but here are a few from the previous catalogs I´ve done for Geggamoja.
So many cool kids.

A golden Magis Puppy at Reform Furniture


Hey! Remember my spray painted robots? and our golden My Little Pony castle?
Yesterday I saw another golden transformation. I went to Reform Furniture in Lund where the owner Sandra had painted her Magis´Puppy in gold.

So beautiful.

Sandra is so cool and has such an awesome home. I told her her home looks like something Tony Montana would live in. I´ll show you more later.
You should follow Sandra on Instagram @reformfurniture
