Styling Susanne Kings Photo Helena Blom
When I found this photo it was so clear to me who this picture was for : my beloved.
Francisco was born in Cuba and this very LARGE photo is called : CUBAN LADY.
When I saw it I did not know, but I immediately thought of Francisco.
I wanted him to have it. So I thought I would take it on the train down to where we live outside of Lund. Hmm.... not such a good idea. This photo is almost as tall as I am. Decided to pick it up at the Malmö location of Bo Concept instead.
Francisco finally got the Cuban Landy and liked her. All was well.
We decided to give her a good place in our Stable. But she is a large lady and we found no real good space. Upstairs is all slanting attic walls so no good for pictures really. So we came up with the thought of making the Cuban lady the front of our hallway closet. Under her is a shoe shelf and behind her wonderful smile you can hang jackets and store gloves and scarves.
Her smile makes us smile. We are even thinking of using the colors of the flowers in her hair for the rest of the Stable interiors. Now that would be something for a Cuban Lady.

Yes it is lovely to work with people you respect and ENJOY working with. But that is not why I put the headline on top of the pic of me and Maria Celin that is working with me on Husräddarna (that in English would be HouseRescuers ) NO -- I said this is good because this series that we are doing, is giving us the chance to really do our thing. Letting us spread our wings and do interior wonders.
Now.... does that not sound like something you want to see ?
TV 3, Husräddarna this spring of 2014.
It´s ALL good.
The handles that came with the copper sink became great towel holders. Loving the scented candles and the soaps from Terrible Twins both for the look and the quality. The right scent is center attention in the bathroom for those relaxed bathroom moments.
The copper pot that became the sink framed by cement. The handles are decorative.
The cement sink from the side and the bathtub finally in place. I love taking baths and have been longing for it.
The small black side metal table holds the necessities from the cup of tea ( or mojito for those nights) to the good looking and wonderful feeling bath salt with the old pharmaceutical look in real glass containers. Terrible twin Bath salt
Under the staircase in the batroom, we built a type of closet and on the outside shelving that can take care of that you always seem to have...
The door was built like old type of simple stable doors from vertical planks with the cross over to hold the structure.
Plenty of towel racks is needed. The small boxes in zink metal is both for deco and storage purpose.
Nice looking nature material boxes always make the storage look structured and beautiful in my eyes.
Proud that we made or own sink in the bathroom using materials we like. That´s personal style to me.
The knobs or hangers I got for the Svea 126 apt in Stockholm, but really like them here in the Stable better.
We found a door in the Stable debris and kept it and now got good use of it as the ONLY door we actually have inside the Stable.
The stable kitchen windows got tiles all the way in.
Above plates and bowls. Hanging is cutlery in the middle and right now the old Argentinian car sign is hung here.
Small plants in big wooden pots does it for me right now.
Easy to grab hanging pots.
Glued to the wall. The Rosemary plate from Agneta Livijn became the deco needed on the very white ceramic kitchen walls.
The kitchen is so full of beautiful objects. Why hide them?
How to time the eggs when the iphone is charging. Nice for display.
