My Summer Wishlist

You know that column I started last year, Weekly Wants? Well, it didn’t exactly turn out to be a weekly column. I did it for a couple of months, then realized I didn’t really want to flood the blog with products.


I have always aimed for a sustainable lifestyle, and encouraging over consumption doesn’t go very well with that. But sometimes you need stuff, and of course I fall for nice designs like everyone else, so sharing a few products here now and then, but not on a regular schedule, seems like a good compromise.

These things are just what I want/need for summer:
1. Fold Mirrors from Normann Copenhagen, to seize the Nordic light and bounce it around my home. Photo by A Merry Mishap.
2. Willmann vases from Menu, that I’d use for leafy greens, twigs and straws (I’m not that fond of blooming flowers), to bring a bit of nature inside.
3. Hope + CSA Pitcher and tumblers in the new grey hue, perfect for water, elderflower lemonade and wine spritzers on warm summer days.
4. Verso Skincare travel set. I am already using this skincare line, and find it great from every perspective except for when I travel. The regular containers are quite large so getting them through airport security just doesn’t happen. But now they are launching a travel kit with the most essential products, just in time for vacations!

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].
