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].

  • Monica

    I would like to see one of my favorite cities Paris on the series. During midnight in Paris, it feels like anything can happen, the city lights are magical, the architecture is beyond beautiful, the language melts on the tongue, and the croissants are to die for. I often go to Paris alone, just to soak in the city. I don’t have to plan anything, I just let the city take me wherever it wants to. Sounds super cliché, but really, that’s how it feels.
