Six months ago I started the little adventure called fronteriors together with fellow stylist and friend @houseofhawkes. We both had a dream to design and build furniture. And so, without any big fat business plan, we decided over lunch to design a range of custom doors and tops to fit a selection of IKEA furniture frames that we work with a lot in our interior styling jobs.
Over the last few months we have been selecting materials, colors and accessories. We had to get techie and design, build and test a website. The fun part was seeing the actual product come to life and doing the photo shoots. The less sexy side was tons of admin, calls, errors and hick ups. However: no rain, no shine… and we did it!
If you are a hard core follower, you might know that this Blog started out with just a name in a note book and a passion for beautiful design. Without any mastermind plan (or knowing how a blog actually worked), I started sharing inspiration. And so the journey of becoming an interior stylist began… But now it is time to evolve into Live Loud Girl 3.0
Our Guest on the blog today is artist and stylist Emilia Ilke from Stockholm. She shares her stunning home – which was originally a school in the 50’s – with partner Frekar and son Igor (2,5 years). We fell in love with her home on her Instagram account @emiliailke, yet getting to know her a bit better, we started to love her art, use of material and colors just as much. And as true fans, we are very happy to have her as our guest.
It has been a good summer. It has been a long break. Slowly things are getting back to normal and we are very ready for it. Our holiday was filled with family time in France and catch-ups with friends. Long lazy days outdoors were compensated by some (very appreciated) Disneyland madness. Besides our French adventures we had time to work on our Live Loud Girl Stays holiday home. We did some incredible sourcing and got inspired in some of our favorite newly discovered stores.
