Living room and kitchen area from an apartment located at Kungsholmen in Stockholm. Original photography by Pia Ulin.
This picture was published in the October issue of the Swedish Elle Decoration 2010 that came out recently. I personally prefer more pastel colours when it comes to home decoration but I still like the clean and sober aesthetics of this home. The use of the colours white, green, brown, grey and beige gives one a feeling of calmness. The aesthetics also feels similar to some parts of the set design in Tom Ford's "A Single Man".

Margaret Howell Women's autumn/winter 2010. Pictures from here.
Inspired by authenticy in nature, people and places, British designer Margaret Howell look for the same quality when it comes to fabrics. She pulls together threads of British tratidion, high quality and skill in clothes that are meant to be worn in the real world, where good design is about living with a thoughtful style. The garments are elegant, sober and timeless - and very applicable when it comes to the gentlewoman concept. Howell is indeed a great designer and a great inspiration at the moment when it comes to beautiful, long lasting and sustainable women's wear.
