Pink Mirror

My parents have an old mirror with tinted pink glass in their living room. It was a present from my dad’s aunt, she loved art and her apartment was filled with it. She said that pink mirror is making it into an art piece. I always liked the reflection of that mirror, it’s nice to you and makes you look mutch better, like a physical Instagram filter. Aunt Aina, was a real trendsetter and I think we are now ready to see here point. I believe we will see much more pink mirrors from now on.

This one is from Poshliving.

a book about the basics of CMF design

It’s not easy to find books about CMF design. Many companies still don’t know much about it and there are no design schools (that I know of) that offer an education in CMF. That’s really crazy, I think.

If you want to know the fundamental principles of CMF design, you can read this book by Liliana Becerra that you can find here

Garden harvest

It’s a cold spring, but the are flowers popping up in the garden anyway. I love the fact that I just can step out and pick my own flowers.

Seems like I will have company in the future, picking flowers!

A lovely home

My dear friend Louise with family are moving from their gourde’s house. An old schoolhouse in Remmarlöv. I had the privilege to help her styling the place, that already is fantastic and always so welcoming. I loved every minute of it like I do spending time with Louise.

 

I also had the privilege to work with Niki at My Scandinavian home. Here you can find the full reportage and see more of this fantastic house.

And if you looking for a new house, this one is on the market.

Easter colors

I love Easter and to decorate with feathers and painting eggs, and the feeling that the spring is here. Yesterday I got the best Easter present I could think of, the most beautiful eggs I have ever seen in the loveliest color palette. I love the pale green with the coral color.

Here we go again, a new era to start!

SARA HALLIN SANDSTRÖM & TINA LEKEBERG

This is another new start for us. Sara is changing jobs and we can’t have our catch up lunch dates any longer! So it’s time to bring this blog back to life again and share the things we love with each other.

We will use this space as a dialogue between us and continue to share, discuss and collaborate. Just in a different way. This space will be liberated from all the “musts” we face in our everyday work as designers and will be a free space for us to share small parts of our lives, private projects that we are working on and other things that make us happy. Our families, gardening, food, fashion or anything that sparks the creative spirit within us.

We hope that you will follow us on this journey to come, here we go – chapter 2!
Big love Sara & Tina
