Sandra and Johan live here

Today next visit in Sweden. You can see amazing flat of one of may favourite blogger and illustrator Sandra Juto. Sandra lives in Gothenburg, where she works as an artist, illustrator and graphic designer. You can see her amazing portfolio here and you must visit her shop with prints, dolls and Wrist Worms. I found here blog some years ago (in time I knew blogs of other swedish girls: Camilla and Elisabeth (you can see her house on my blog) and since then I visit it regulary. For me it's amazing place, full of beautiful pictures. Sandra is very tallented photographer. She has incredible ability to show so simple things in such beautiful way, I love her sense of humour and imagination too - see the lamp in the hall :-D . I love her photos from travels the same as pics from everyday life. But… something about her house :-) She lives there with her husband Johan.  The flat is rather small (about 35 m2) but so cosy, beautiful and furnished with such good taste. I love her livingroom with vintage cupboard and lamp, table with Eames chairs, armchair with crotchet blanket, blue walls with cute pictures in the hall, kitchen with many little beautful tins, boxes, cups, spoons… Oh there are so many things to count (golden trumpet, strings of pearls, drawings, posters)… just have a look for pictures of Sandra's place and be guest in her wonder place!
and here some pic from her lovely studio
and her famous Wrist Worms
My questions / Sandra's answers:
1. How do you describe your house style?
A pick and mix of everything me and my husband want in our home.
2. You like your home because...
It feels good to be in, I like the atmosphere.
3. Have you got your favourite designer or just love things of their beauty?
I love things for their beauty and I admire Verner Panton's way of seeing things very much.
4. Whose house do you love or admire?
My sister's. Her home is also a pick and mix of what she likes and she has no famous "designer stuff" in her home, which I quite like although I have them myself ;)
5. Your most favourite colour...
Pearl white.
6. What's your dreamy place to live and create?
I dream of an apartment in Berlin.
7. What a wonderful evening means for you...
A long walk to a nice bar and then a shorter walk back home again.
8. Your most inspiring book/movie/music...
I love anything by Woody Allen when it comes to movies. Pet Shop Boys is my all-time favourite band and lately I've been quite drawn into Haruki Murakami's written worlds.
9. Your most favourite thing in your home or not...
My most favourite thing is my stack of yarn, because it changes all the time. I try to only have things I like in my home, but there is one thing that I would like to change as soon as I find a good replacer - the water kettle, it's awful :)
10. When you do not work...
I have coffee with my husband and friends at different cafés, I read books and I make plans for the future.
-----------------
I'd like to thank you Sandra for your time, thank you for created so marvellous place  I can visit every day, thank you for sharing with us your beautiful house which could be an inspiration for everybody how to do cosy, great and uncommon place to live.
All photos I showed you were taken by Sandra Juto.

morning :-D

Mam skłonność do popadania w przesadę. Kiedy coś zaczynam robić - to na maksa. Na swoje nieszczęście ostatnio znów zajrzałam do książek kucharskich... i zaczęło się. Książki, blogi o jedzeniu, filmy o jedzeniu, myśli o jedzeniu, sny o jedzeniu... i jedzenie. Dziś spędziliśmy we trójkę (razem z nami wspaniały syn mojego męża) kilka godzin na pieczeniu mufinek. Było super dla oczu i podniebienia, niestety myślę, że te 3 kilogramy których spadek zobaczyłam dziś rano powrócą do mnie szybciutko i w podskokach ;-( no trudno ale warto było. Wspaniałe przepisy na mufinki z których zawsze korzystamy i wszystko wychodzi tuŚliczna strona, której istnienie odkryłam dziś tu. Wracam do łóżka i jedzenia ///buziaki
-----------------
I'm used to exaggerate in many aspect of my life. Starting with something means doing it to the maximum. Unfortunately I have dipped into the cook-books lately and it was started… Books about eating, movies about eating, thoughts about eating, dreams about eating and eating. We spent today's morning (me, the best husband in the world and his son) on baking muffins. It was great time!!! The best recipes for muffins you can find here, and here lovely blog I found today. I'm going to bed and… eating///kisses

book for the weekend (11)

Dziś książeczka która wydaje się doskonała nie tylko ze względu na ilustracje i tekst ale dlatego że ma w sobie wszystko co lubię najbardziej: historię rodzinną, piękne ilustracje, szytą miękką oprawę (nie cierpię tych wszystkich książek w twardej oprawie, które tak "godnie" wyglądają w biblioteczce, ale noszone w torbie do czytania w tramwajach lub autobusach okropnie ranią ręce, zostawiają masę siniaków i są niepotrzebnie ciężkie) i WSPANIAŁE włoskie przepisy. Czyli uczta dla duszy, oczu ale też dla ciała. Sprawdziłam - i wszystko co robiłam (a raczej mój najfajniejszy na świecie mąż robił) wychodził przepyszne. Autorką jest włoszka Larissa Bertonasco. Chociaż kiepsko gotuję lubię czytać książki kucharskie, najbardziej lubię to robić - jedząc. Wiem, wiem powinnam się delektować posiłkiem i takie tam ale co na to poradzę że czytanie podczas posiłku jest takie przyjemne, a czytanie książek kucharskich i wyobrażanie sobie tych wszystkich smaków dodatkowo! A Wy czy też macie ten niepożądany wśród "osobników na pewnym poziomie" nawyk?
Zostawiam Was z tym pytaniem i kilkoma obrazkami z książki "Wspaniałe przepisy mojej babci" które na 100% zaostrzą Wasz apetyt. Życzę wszystkim miłego weekendu!

-----------------
Today a book which seems to be perfect not only because of its subject and illustrations but also because it contains wonderful family story with amazing italin recipes! It's feast for soul, eyes and body :-). I checked some recipes and I must say everything was perfect (telling the truth everything was checked by "the best husband in the world" not me) This is a book by Italian girl living in Germany Larissa Bertonasco.  I'm rather bad cooker, but I love reading cook-books especially during my meals. I know, I know it's very bad habit but soooooo pleasant! And what about you, have you got this unwanted by many well-mannered  people habit? So I leave you with this questions and some pages from this marvellous book. Bon appétit!
