things that last

Minolta SRT 101, Kodak Portra 400nc

A year ago, almost to the date, I posted this. Yesterday I came across an article in Norwegian Elle Interiør (one of my favorite decorating magazines) from that home. It belongs to Bengt Lagerberg, drummer in the Swedish band The Cardigans, and Emma Persson, an interior stylist and writer. In the article Emma says something that really speaks to me:

I'm not really interested in design classics, especially not when they work as status symbols. If I like a piece of furniture, it may just as well be from IKEA; it doesn't really matter. As I get older, I'm more into things that last - both emotionally and because of quality.

more thought on home decorating


  1. i couldn't agree more. everything in my home has either been found, repurposed or purchased because we truly love it, not because of what it is. i love the history of all our pieces and i get the same sense from your home, too :)

  2. I have in my home furnitures that I like, I don't metter anymore about status, I love to stay in home and look to my things! The chic is in our heart ;)

  3. Is that a Klippan blanket? I have a moose design one, I was an unusual teenager in that I think I liked beautiful things that last even then, I fell in love with it in a Scandinavian design shop and asked for it for Christmas - it was all i got that year because it was so pricey but I adore it (in fact it's on my knee now!). A very treasured and loved posession!
