I am sure many of you will already be following La Maison d'Anna G, a very popular bilingual French / English blog focusing on Scandinavian design and home interiors. If you aren't, and are looking for lots of gorgeous eye-candy and Nordic inspiration for your home from someone in the know, Anna Gustafsson's blog is a definite must-bookmark address on the web.
Anna grew up in Sweden but after travelling in Australia and Switzerland, she finally settled in France. She's been living in Paris for a long time now, but her tastes are clearly influenced by her childhood years in Scandinavia. She is passionate about beautiful, pure, minimal design and it really shows.
I for one and am delighted to learn that Anna has just opened an online shop, offering a personal selection of handpicked, contemporary Nordic design. She is the first retailer in France for more than half the brands in the store and one of very few retailers for most of the other brands. I love the mix of established and up-and-coming-designers, and have seriously fallen for Lisa Bengtsson's new Boudoir collection and all those soothing soft pinks and greys.
The good news is that Anna's stylish shop isn't just for the French - she is happy to ship worldwide! However, La Maison d'Anna G has only just opened its virtual doors, so be patient, the site will be translated into English in August. Please don't hesitate to send Anna her an email if you have any questions, she'll be happy to answer in French, English, Swedish ...
Tack så mycket Anna!
