Dos Visits Kollijox´s Home in Varberg, Sweden

Kollijox13This is artist Jennie Blomkvist where she likes to be the most: on the deck with her daughter Jill. I went to visit her with my camera and today I want to show you her home that she calls her playhouse. Jennie´s art is just like her home: fun, spontaneous and relaxed. She does not pay attention to trends and being at her house is inspiring, layed back and I can´t imagine it ever being dull.

Visit Jennie´s blog here, buy her art here and follow her on instagram @kollijox

I photographed this story with writer Kicki Wieslander for Australian mag. Real Living.
I hope you like it.

Long summer days are spent out on this deck. Jill has found some shade under this table so she can play “cut the rope” on moms phone.

Such a divine space. They´ve added wheels on some pallets for a generous seating area. And painted the old wooden sofa red.
