Hi everyone!

I discovered that I’ve gotten a lot of new readers in the last couple of days. Actually, my visitors count have doubled! I’m very happy to be reaching such a big audience of course, but also very curious of where you all come from, who you are and what got you to visit my blog?

I hope you are enjoying what you see, please feel free to browse the archives in the right column to find my older posts and get a feel for what I’m into.


Welcome to all my new readers (and the old ones of course)! If you like, please leave a comment and tell me a little about who you are and how you found me!

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: [email protected].

  • Hello from New York! I found you last year and I love to come here for inspiration. I own a 6 unit brick building in that state of Illinois (about 1000 miles away from here) and I’m slowly fixing it up. I love to come here and see what wonderful things can be done with brick and stone to an old building. When it’s finished (not for a long time!) I will send you a link to show you what you have inspired! Thanks!! Glenda

  • I just want to thank everyone who took the time to write a little something here, it is greatly appreciated!
