Inredningsvis 2013: The year in review

2013 has been a busy year for Team Inredningsvis. Here are some of our highlights and some things you might have missed:



We said Hola, Malaga! as we escaped the Swedish Winter and explored this southern Spanish destination for a few days.

Inredningsvis celebrated 1 full year online, and I published a post about New Zealand (my home country) as a dream holiday destination.

Crossing Cook Strait to the South Island


Maria started posting about fashion and we found out about the craziness that is Easter.



Brorsan the cat makes an appearance on one of the world’s most popular decor blogs, Desire to Inspire, and we start exploring the islands off the coast of Gothenburg with the warmer weather.





I finally create a perfect gluten free bread recipe and Maria and I are invited to stay as guests at Styrsö Skäret Bed & Breakfast.

We spend an amazing 2 week Summer holiday on our favorite island of Styrsö, in a classic Swedish little red cottage.

We spend the night at Hällsnäs Hotel and Conference Centre, and continue to inspire with Summer home decor.

We take a look at interior design as a concept, look at an amazing Victorian villa, and learn about some smart storage solutions.

The Inredningsvis website gets a facelift, and we give you some great recipes for Swedish Cheese Pie and carrot cake muffins. We also give you some great decor tips such as 7 tips for home office decor as well as cute cat furniture.



Maria and Jon both have birthdays, and we spend a few sunny and amazing days in Antibes in France. I get back into photography with some Autumn images, and we check out some Swedish tile fireplaces.


Maria creates a picture wall, Jon shows how to take better photos with an iPhone camera, and we find out how to make bedrooms more sexy.



We go crazy with Christmas shopping and webshops, and tell you about some of our favourite online boutiques, such as Casa Rosenhill, Ateljé Mormor, Hemsjön, Etnodesign, Matilde & Co, Bengkers, Lilla Harmoniboden, Älvsbyhus, and Room99.

Maria and I would firstly like to thank YOU – our wonderful readers, for visiting, leaving lots of friendly and fun comments, and telling everyone you know about Inredningsvis – the Swedish home decor and inspiration blog.

We’re going to take a short break from writing now and will be back early in the New Year.

But as ever, inredningsvis will be open 24/7 to provide lots of amazing decor, food, fashion and travel inspiration! :)

HAPPY NEW YEARRR  from Maria and Jon, at
