At Sturegatan in Stockholm you will find this amazingly beautiful flat for sale. I am a total sucker for Scandinavian interior, everything seems to be so clean, crisp and bright. I love the use of windows in this flat especially the one that separates the bedroom and the bathroom. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. For more info look here.

I recently got sent the images for Sostrene Grenes fall line. I really like a lot of the things that the brand comes out with but everything I want is usually sold out by the time that I move myself into gear. This time around I am going to try and get there in time. I really love the flower pots so fingers crossed !!! Keep your eyes out for this line its supposed to be in stores from the 7th of September, so we have to wait a little 🙂 Make sure to follow us on Instagram: reykjavikfashion This post is not sponsored!
There are so many beautiful old houses in Reykjavik, especially in the downtown area. I live in what they call the “old west-side” of Reykjavik and in that area you can find many of the old town houses. Many of these houses have clearly drawn inspiration from Scandinavian designs and I just recently spotted that my dream house has been put on sale. I put a few pictures here and if you want to get more information have a look here.
Áslaug Magnúsdóttir has for the past 19 years lived abroad, in the UK and the US. In New York she runs the luxury lifestyle company ´John Brevard´ with the architect and designer John Brevard and that is where she lives most part of the year. Áslaug bought an apartment in Reykjavík three years ago where she lives when staying in Iceland. She and John Brevard changed the modern apartment into something unique. The apartment is white and black and the artwork gives the dot over the i when it comes to other colors. We thought we should share sone photos from the shoot we did with Áslaug. To see more , pick up a copy of your latest issue. Áslaug’s apartment in Reykjavík is like a work of art – or even like a piece of jewelry made of white gold and black diamonds.

Yrsa Sigurðardóttir’s crime novels are sold all over the world. In her home in Iceland, where she creates the crime novels that over two million people have read, an 800 years old skull sits ominously in the kitchen. The house stands near the sea and the waves kiss the shore. A silvery Jaguar stands in front of the house. The author opens the front door and two old pugs look curiously at the guest. Their names? Palli and Pilla. The cat of the house, Mjása, is probably chasing a mouse outside. Yrsa pours tea in dainty teacups adorned with flowers. She bought the teacups on one of her trips to England. As an author she travels abroad often. In September, there were five trips abroad in total. “I make an average of two trips a month, and I think the most frequent places I go to are Norway, the UK, Germany and the US. Usually these trips last three or four days. I speak to journalists and meet the public on the longer trips and the shorter trips are usually at crime festivals where you are on stage talking to the audience and signing books afterwards.” Yrsa worked for years as an engineer. “I’m away so much and need more time for writing so now I only do little work as an engineer.” Absolution Palli and Pilla are not so curious about me anymore and lay down on their bed. They fall asleep and snore. Yrsa started writing for children when she was 32 years old. “I ended up writing five books for children and sort of took a pause for two years after that. When I started writing again it was to write crime novels for grown ups. I’m writing my 12th book so all in all the…
