Here is a week in her life, with a sneak peek from the newest collection.

"I travel a lot with my work and this week I have spent three days in Stockholm shooting three home features for BO BEDRE in Östermalm, Södermalm and Ladugårdsgärdet.

In the evenings the photographer and I were having dinners with some friends from Stockholm. One evening we had dinner at a restaurant called Schmaltz and another evening we had dinner at a French bistro called Pas D’Art."

What's the ideal outfit for a workday?

When shooting home features I am both a journalist and a stylist, so it is a lot of moving around, making sure each frame is the perfect composition of things, so I need to wear something that is comfortable and yet I need to present myself for the interview situation.

It would normally be a pair of jeans, a t-shirt and a thin sweater – so I can take things off and on. It can be quite physically moving furniture and objects around…

"I always have my eyes open for visual inspiration – no matter if it is a beautiful hallway made from exquisite materials, a shadowplay in a wineglass or a unique furniture piece.

One of my all-time favorite chairs is the Wassily Lounge Chair designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925. Here it is in the Swedish interior shop called Nordiska Galleriet, elegantly curated with a blue glass table by Patricia Urquiola for Glas Italia."

"Before I became a mum, I never had two weekends alike. Now they all look, more or less the same – and it is actually, despite how it may sound, quite nice! We wake up, go to our favourite café, Les Voyageurs, have an omelette, an orange juice, a café au lait before we head off to the playground at Sankt Annæ Plads. When my daughter sleeps, I hurry to the couch to read – Weekendavisen, The New Yorker, and right now I am finishing up the book The Postcard by Anne Berest. This weekend was just like that."

What is your most played song lately?

I don’t listen so much to music as I would love to and as I used to. So I feel like I am not up to date! When I’m at work I listen a lot to instrumental music, because when I write, I get distracted by singing voices trying to tell me something. So at work, I put on Brian Eno, Harold Budd, Henrik Lindstrand, Bremer/McCoy, August Rosenbaum, Daniel Lanois, Molly Lewis and Ryuichi Sakamoto.

This week I got very touched by a YouTube video with Joni Mitchell performing the song Both Sides Now at The Newport Festival that my boss showed me. Her voice has changed so much over the years. It has become so much deeper, and filled with wisdom, it gave the song a completely new meaning. I always loved the original one so much, but this one brought tears to my eyes. It was like a physical manifestation of something so fluent as time that has passed. It made me want to revisit all these new folk-inspired singers that I love so much such as Aldous Harding, Marissa Nadler, Julie Byrne, Julia Holter, Jessica Pratt, Julia Jacklin etc. 

How about literature?

I also don’t read as much as I would love to – I guess it’s just like that when you have small kids and a full-time job. But this summer I read Édouard Louis: Change: A Method, which I was really fond of, and right now I am reading The Postcard by Anne Berest, which is also really good and horribly sad – a holocaust story told from her own family's perspective.
