Our LA house is in a Swedish magazine and I thought I would share it with you. Journalist and photographer Stephanie Bjelkstam came to LA a while back to take pictures and to write a story about the makeover. She had read my Swedish blog for Sköna Hem and followed the story on my home“California Dreaming” – our LA House in a Magazine
The home renovations here have been at a standstill for a few weeks due to various issues. It’s thankfully finally back on and the house is waiting for stucco. However after all this wait (two years all in all!) I can’t imagine what it will be like working in an office now with loads ofDreamy inspiration for my new office
In May we started the final part of our house renovations and it was to turn the garage in to a teen room/guest house as well as a big downstairs office for my company. It went wickedly fast at first. If I just went off to a short meeting I would return to a completelyOur guest house renovation – almost there!
Yesterday we started the final renovation project on our house. The Guest House. Turning the garage in to a guest house was supposed to be the first thing we did when we bought it. I would get a great office downstairs and Luke would get a big teen room upstairs. Well, it didn’t happen thatRenovations again! DAY 1 & 2 – The Guest house
We’re finally coming to the the home stretch on a huge project on the east coast. We’ve worked on the building and design of large property in Virginia.

When the renovations are going at lightning speed you often have to make really quick decisions. Luckily sometimes those decisions can be the best. The house didn’t have a space for an office for me, so I had been playing around with the idea of getting an office out of the house. But I wasThe most inspiring renovation idea yet – My office.
