Dos Visits Elina

Elina, Johan and Etta rent an apartment near Folkets Park in Malmö.  Elina is an seamstress and Johan is an musican. And even though the apartment isn´t huge there is room for both of their proffessions. At the end of the livingroom they have dedicated one corner to Elina´s sewing and one to Johan´s music. And most of the time that´s where the hang out.

Elina is one of the half of the duo behind the store DeerDot. And I had to convince her to let me come and photograph their home. I hope she´ll like it.

As you can see I have changed the look of my visit. You can still get bigger images by clicking any photo, that will take you to the slideshow. What do you prefere. New or old?

Johan wasn´t home when I was there. So this is the only photo you´ll see of him.

But in reality I know that they are saving up for a trip to Nashville.

Elina covered the cabinet doors in vintage wallpaper. And painted the inside green.

A semi colored chest. And Etta and Pippi and Cash.

Johan´s things

Johan plays pedle steel guitar and he likes Cash.

Etta´s toy kitchen. Her mother made her this fun chocolate cake. Yummi

All her ponnies fit into this stable, made of an old cd-shelf from IKEA.

Why are you taking pictures of my dad´s steel guitar? Etta asks me.

Because I think it looks very nice, I replied.

Accessories for a Honkey Tonk man to the left, and accessories for Etta to the right.

Thank you for letting my stop by.

Photos by me, Jenny Brandt

I love it!! I need to go through your blog to find the Old Men Bday party you had organized. I mentioned it to Mila for her 6 years old party and she liked the idea…although when I said I thought it on someone’s else blog, she told me: “it’s not nice to copy…”
Life is tough at home with a 6 years old who specialized in copyright and intellectual property!
Have a great weekend

Loves it, som vanligt! Jag fördrar slide-showen, eftersom jag gillar stoooora foton. Så man ser ordentligt :)

Jenny svarar- jag älskar också stora bilder. Men om man klickar på dessa bilderna startar slideshowen som vanligt.

fint fint och de har snyggaste mattan Ikea någonsin har gjort. Jenny, du är duktig på att hitta pärlorna!

I the way all the images can now be seen, but I like to view them larger in order linger and catch all the details. Always love your visits though – most definitely one of my favorite things to look at.

@Jenny: ja, på så vis är ju detta bättre eftersom man får både ock. Ta bara inte bort slideshowen :)

Jag gillar slideshowen. Men jag saknar dina fina kommentarer på vissa av bilderna.

Heja! Jag tycker att det här blev bättre och mer lättillgängligt på något sätt. Mer överskådligt. Dessutom får man både och, så det är win för alla!

Va´fint! Jag längtar till er i Malmö!

Åh, de blommiga tapeterna på köksluckorna, så fint. De påminner om de jag hade i mitt barnrum, på sjutti-åtti-talen någongång. Gitarrer på väggen, ja, så ska det se ut!
Hela hemmet känns så lättsamt på något vis. O-pretto.
Hur hittar du alla sköna hem, Jenny!

April 18, 2011 at 08:21

Ja, eller frågetecken då ? Eftersom det sista faktiskt var en fråga…
Hej Helena! den är så fin, tapeten. Jag tror att Elina köpt den här den är helt säkert från 70 talet.

Oooh, vilket fint hem!
Och jag gillar det nya. :)

Fantastic. What an adorable and clever home. Darling little girl to boot.

Hej! Snap, my mum gave me her old Husqvana which is exactly the same! Except it has black electric and pedal cords, not green… So lovely!
