Holiday Gift Guide 2014 #1 – The Design Lover’s Gifts

I suspect you have all started thinking about holiday presents now, so I figured I’d make a set of gift guides to give you some ideas and inspiration. They will all have different themes, and why not start with the most important person to spoil; yourself! 😉 Since my family keeps to the tradition of not buying gifts for adults, I always get my own presents, and this is what I’d like to give myself. And as you are reading this blog, I believe we might have similar tastes, so perhaps some of these items will end up on your wishlist too?
In the top collage you will find: Table Lamp Vapeur, Artilleriet | Scented Candle Revenge, Ouistudio | Silver Poster Depressed, Playtype
In the collage below: Pebble Marble Charging Pad and Speaker, Orée Artisans |  Dot Hanger, Afteroom | Aalto Stool 60 Meiré, Finnish Design Shop | Mini Wire Table, Modernica

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between. If you have any suggestions, propositions for collaborations, other ideas or just want to say hi, throw an email at:


  • Love the Afteroom coat hanger! Couldn’t be better inspiration timing for our entrance revamp. Thanks 🙂
