It’s finally here, vacation time! I’m going to take two weeks off to spend time with family and friends, starting with a trip to Copenhagen. This spring has been crazy, and I have a feeling the coming autumn will be even busier, so I really need some time to relax and reload now.


I will try to stay offline as much as possible during these weeks, however I will probably be posting on Instagram (@emfex), so follow me there if you like!

I’m leaving you with some images from the brand new online magazine Home & Delicious, published by Icelandic husband-and-wife team Gunnar Sverrison and Halla Bára Gestsdóttir. Halla interviewed me for this first issue, so if you are interested you can read it on page 180-181. There is of course lots of other great contents in the magazine also, like beautiful Icelandic homes, DIY projects, some drool-worthy recipes and nicely written articles (in English), so click over for some good summer reading!
Take care, enjoy summer and I’ll see you again soon!

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].


  • Hope you and your family have a fantastic time in Copenhagen!
