Stylist Joanna Lavén

Yes, I’m still here. I’ve been working hard behind the scenes this week on a Christmas calendar for the blog, with great giveaways from some wonderful sponsors. I think you are going to like it…

Below are some pictures that caught my eye from the portfolio of Swedish prop stylist


Joanna Lavén. I’m really into worn things at the moment, but not in a ”shabby chic” way, more in a dirty, wrinkly and broken way. Wrinkled brown paper bags are my favourite props right now!

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].
