Winter on canvas

So Swedish and with an artist whose name is so very Italian. Frans Johan Roselli from Eksjö in Småland. Actually a student of the extravagant master of dramatic landscapes Marcus Larson.
Un underestimated one if you ask me.

Xmas Salmon

Funny how you buy 2 pieces from totally different places in the country, you scrape them and they have almost exactly the same color. And this beautiful salmon pink is not so very common.

The Ice Castle

Just like a fairy tale from C.S. Lewis this small but yet amazing castle looks enchanted in the winter morning light.

Surreal landscapes

I guess Madonna got inspired here for here frozen song.

It felt like Amundsen with a Passat

Extremely cold period in all the country, snow storm and hard winds in the south, extremely low temperature in the middle and north of Sweden. But yes so beautiful.

My favorite wall

This concrete wall by the entrance of my show/working place is just too nice. It could fit in every nice house or flat from the beaches of Malibu to the Norwegian fjords. From the outback of Australia to the eternal shining Paris. I do love taking pictures of my stuffs in front of it.

Autumn Salmon

Inspired by Halloween here a really tasteful salmon in the oven.
Fresh salmon, pumpkin fruit pieces and seeds, olive oil, lemon, garlic, sun root (Jerusalem artichoke), salt and pepper. In in the oven about 20 min or less, 225 celsius.
As delicious as it is simple.

To be or not to be

Did he ever got over here?
I mean William.
Any idea anybody?

The beauty of the simplicity

Glass tins from the 19th. century are some of my favorite antique kitchen items. Beautiful hand-blown, fragile and still so strong. Amazing pieces,  icons among glass products.

You are definitly welcome.

Piemonte lake

Fall time in north Italy as well, even though a little bit warmer than Sweden. Misty view to dream and reflect about the winter life we are going forward to.

My own little cathedral

I´m so long the master over this carving jewel,  a clock from the pretty early 18th. century that makes me feel like if i own a little piece of that time. It feels like (in a exaggerated comparison) a piece of a sculpture  mounted in a pillar of a baroque cathedral.
I´m totally sober, allow me to feel great.

Drawers maniac 2

It´s not a horror movie title, it´s just that i ve been telling you about my love for original painted small drawers before, probably more than once. Drawers maniac 3 is anyway coming soon.

The 3 grey ones

Gustavian, period, scraped to the original grey color, smalls differences in the tone of it, but same amazing feeling.

Sunday, September 12, 2010

I feel like an archaeologist

You couldn´t hardly see the carving nice work on this gustavian sofa.
To take the original color and carving up to the surface makes me feel like an archeaoligist without mummies. Still a nice feeling and less scaring.

France by dawn

It´s dawn, it´s calm, it´s early and still kind of dark but you feel the energy of the French cities already in vibration.

Friday, August 27, 2010

All kind of contrast

Colors, all kind, they were master of colors combínation in the past in Sweden. I like to scrape the over painted furniture´s and discover the fantasy of the old artists.

End of summer

Oh yeah, sad but true, even though some nice weather, school started today and you feel the end of summer around you.
It doesn´t means mental depression, now it´s a good time to focus on the good part of the soon coming fall time. There is a lot of good things happening in the next future i can see forward to.

But damm i love the summer!

Markaryd here i come!

Hi there, don´t forget (if you can) to come and visit me and the others hundreds of crazy dealers who choose to sleep a night in a car in a mosqito cold paradise instead of their cozy bad. In Markaryd at the annaul Antique open market.
But then again we antique dealers are a strange race.
Strange but amazing.

Hidden tresures

I don´t know if they have ever had hidden treasures inside or if they are treasures them self for their beauty, history, age and CHEAP prices.

I do love trunks.

4 Sisters for thirsty Sailors

The totally original Chatul with 4 engraved (on all the 4 sides) and perfect nice small bottles is an unusual found. Even the key is left and working and the mahogany box has original tapestry inside. Nice, it´s not an unusual item, but the untouched conditions are special. Cheers sailors!

Cabinet with love

A lovely cabinet, made for a wedding occasion, just came in my possession. It went away as fast as the flame of love probably turned on directly between this promise couple.
Am i too romantic?
I don´t care.

Blue like the caribean sea

It´s what i can look at when the Mexican sea is only a sweet memory. But i LOVE this blue trunks!
I do admit the contrast between Mexico and Sweden is huge, but in a very different way they are 2 countries with an exceptionalal variety of wonderful colors.

Maya dance?

No just a regular happy freaking-out enjoying the vacation.
It was just so nice over there!

What to do?

What should i have done when my best friend call and ask me if i want to follow him to Mexico on a luxury all inclusive resort with everything else paid from a sponsor?
I packed my shorts in 3 minutes.
What a lucky bastard i am!

I just love them and when they are like this 18th. century drawers!?!
I don´t need to explaine no more.

Sunday, April 11, 2010

This is mine!

I can´t say "NO" to my lovely wife, don´t i?
When she saw me working at the computer with the photos of a new income and freshly scraped  cabinet with a nice color,  she said " I like that!"
It will feet perfectly right in a corner in the bedroom, it is not every day she likes my work results!
So Carpe diem

Red and blue

The little blue original painted "mangelbräde" horse from dated early 19 th. feels like a king (a horse-king) on the beautiful red chest of drawers.

The wheat twig chairs

Much more classic gustavian than this is hard to be for a pair of chairs

Saturday, March 13, 2010

Stove for the spring

The old stove-cover in casted iron can be use as well as a nice consol against a wall. You don´t need a fireplace to enjoy it.

Just like this

Simply nice interior of a writing - desk, i personally love the combination of white and black. Just simply elegant.
All orginal colors off course.
