Stureby Stadsvillor

stureby-stadsvillor-nine-door-properties-liljewall-arkitekter-till-salu-stockholm

I höst har jag formgett och varit art director i skapandet av en säljfolder tillsammans med Nine Doors Properties. Objekten är fyra stycken helt utsökta, nyproducerade villor ritade av Liljewall Arkitekter i Stureby i Stockholm. Foldern ska på tryck inom kort och villorna ligger reda uppe Hemnet.

Ifall du vill ha mer information eller en folder i brevlådan, maila mig på katarina@lolitas.se

Bilderna är av Nadja Helminen, jag hittade hennes bilder på instagram och blev helt förtrollad. Hur duktig är inte hon på både styling och fotografi? Förresten så har föreningen möjlighet att förfoga över en egen Tesla 3… Villa, elbil och köksbänk i marmor, vad väntar en på?

Såhär kommer foldern se ut på ett ungefär:

stureby-stadsvillor-nine-doors-properties-1

Translation

This is a project I’ve been working on as a art director and graphic designer this autumn. It’s a catalogue for a housing project in Stureby in Stockholm, and the apartments (which are currently up on the market) are created by Swedish architecture agency Liljewall and sold by Stockholm based real estater Nine Door Properties.

The text in the infographical presentation above is in Swedish but what it says is basically where on the map the apartments are located, that the kitchen island is built in marble, that they feature a large terrace and that they will be built and ready for moving into into in january 2018.

I found the photographer Nadja Helminen through instagram and I absolutely love her interior styling and photography style. Above are excerpts from the folder itself, along with her photos and a prototype of the finished product. Email me if you’d like a copy of it.

Top 3 things to do in Dublin, including where to eat and stay

1-Dublin-Countryside-Coastline-Sights-790x435

Some months ago, I went to Dublin for the first time for the blog travel blog Fantasiresor and made a small travel guide. I had read about the friendly spirit of the city and the beautiful landscapes but it totally blew me off my feet, I loved it! The people were just the nicest, most easygoing ever and the city was so exciting, full of creative energy.

There was suberb graphic design everywhere, from the street signs of small local business to beautifully layouted posters and restaurant menus, a possible outcome of companies like Google, Apple, Amazon och Facebook having their offices (and creatives) nearby, taking on challenges both on a digital and grassroot level. Dublin is actually the nr 1 tech hub in Europe, here’s a sweet map of where the offices are located in the city center if you feel like some millenial sightseeing.

2-Dublin-Countryside-Coastline-Sights

We went to see the beautiful coastline and the infamous James Joyce tour one of the days. Pictured above is the genius french travel blogger Julie Sarperi of Carnet de Traverse, be sure to check out her blog if you love breath-taking photography.

14-Dublin-Ireland-City-Dean-Hotel

I stayed at The Dean Hotel and it was just the loveliest experience, I’m getting back to this place in a separate post (because it deserves it obviously).

1-Dublin-Ireland-City-790x435

If you love beautiful house fronts with personal, quirky doors, this is the city for you! There is even a hashtag called #doorsofdublin which says something about the supply.

13-Dublin-Dublin-St-Patricks-Church-Sights

It’s very Diagon Alley all over the place, just sayin’.

19-Dublin-Ireland-City-Dean-Hotel

The Dean Hotel facade.

20-Dublin-Ireland-City-Dean-Hotel

If you read in Swedish, there are three posts on this city for you at Fantasiresor. To do in Dublin, The food & city and The Dublin oastline. If not, the photos tell quite alot about the city – if you think about going, I strongly recommend it!

Picks of the week: Marshmallow by Kam-Kam, The Reformation, the Neuzeit font and Emily Coxhead

marshmallow sofa by kamkam 2

Morning / evening / night dreamers. I don’t know your current time zone but whatever the clock is, here are some of my favorite dreams right now.

First off, that Marshmallow sofa by Kam-Kam tho. It looks relatively comfortable but moreover: SO pretty. This is the cloud emoji come to life in a sofa.

the reformation nutella emily coxhead

I love the droopy-heart crepe 2 piece by The Reformation above. And Emily Coxhead is my instagram-crush right now with her positive messages and dreamy snaps (like those shoes are *literally* candeey).

And of course, some random ink lettering with the important things in life like nutella and baths can never fail.

 

neuzeit grotesk

 

Finally, this font may be my new favorite since Avenir. It’s called Neuzeit and goes with anything.

Gourmet mouse traps and Clarendon

mouse trap

Such an amusing concept: Gourmet mouse traps. It is what it sounds like. I think some human beings, myself included, would easily become victims (especially if it involved strawberry shortcake..).

clarendon calenderAs I’m currently attending courses in typography and graphic design, I’m suffering from slight tunnel vision which may explain some posters and stuff appearing on Lolitas from now. The calender above is set in the 18th-century font Clarendon (used in old western wanted posters among other things). I think it’s pretty in all it’s boldness, don’t you?

This kitchen is just too adorable with it’s dusty pink cupboards and diagonal checkered floor.. From a London studio I found right here.

So, saucy mouse traps, chunky typefaces and playful kitchens made for great meetings and delicious coffee breaks… These are some of the things in my inspiration-folders right now!
