    Calling all Swedes!  I have some exciting news.

    Today I started a daily design blog for the Swedish design magazine Sköna Hem. I thought it would be really fun to share my renovation diary and all cool things design here in LA with Sweden, and I’m thrilled that my favorite design magazine back home felt the same!

    There’s a catch… it’s in Swedish. But just in case you read Swedish, are Swedish or you have Swedish friends…please share the link with them!

    Some of you bloggers and designers might be familiar with the magazine.

    Even if you can’t read it, the interiors are always really beautiful.

    I’m excited after so many years living in the states to connect up with Sweden with design.

    I’ll still be blogging here. Hope to see you Thursday, I’ll share the latest house update!

    If you are looking for some great inspirational reading this weekend pick up Susanna Salk’s new book  Decorate Fearlessly.  For all you “maximalists” out there every page is like a present. Whether you are a Tony Duquette fan, a Dorothy Draper addict, color lover, or simply have a love for the adventurous you will love it.   It’s filled with deeply personal spaces. Susanna’s quote in the beginning of the book might be my favorite.

    A young designer asked her what made her select a room for the book? Her answer was:  “More than certain characteristics, it’s more like an indescribable feeling , like your heart is engaged in a tango with a delightful stranger, like you have the sudden urge to pick up the phone and call your best friend,  like how the thought of leaving fills you with sadness, as though a great novel ending”.  She finally said I suppose it comes down to these three words “Wow. Huh! Yum.”

    And she couldn’t be more right. It’s all about how a space makes you feel. IMG_7798

    The cover alone says it all.

    You can spend hours looking at some of these interiors. And I love all the color!

    And of course the coolest thing of all, for me…

    …is being part of it. Thrilled to have my foyer included with some of my favorite designers!

    After reading the book, and looking at this picture. Had I not know we were moving and it had to stay somewhat streamlined,  I would have torn out the stone floor, installed wood then painted it in some crazy pattern in the boldest colors I would have found.

    Have  a great weekend!

    Hope you’re enjoying your weekend!  Just wanted to quickly share this article…

    Since Luke and I still feel like we’re out here in LA on vacation, it was a surreal feeling when I picked up the latest issue of Coastal Living and read “California designer Jill Sorensen…” in Santa Monica.

    What perfect timing and welcome!

    I’m not sure what your design reads are, but Coastal Living is one of my personal favorites. You can pick up the September issue of the magazine or read some of my design tips and (pet peeves)  here.

    Coastal Living.

    There is a big bedding and carpet sale going on on LiveLikeYou so in case you need some you might not want to miss it.
