At Home with Swedish Artist Tove Mauritzson

Artist Tove Mauritzson makes some seriously funky artwork, and you know her home had to be equally cool!

It's kitchy & fabulous! It's not difficult to see what makes the room here. What do you think? The art or the furniture?

Tove looks about ready to pop, but she's looking tres chic at the same time! She's now given birth to her little daughter, Harriet. I'm totally loving the look of her studio!

Color perfection!

Her home is filled with chic little vignettes.

A teal colored chalk board just looks about a MILLION times better than the usual black.

A cheap way to fix up a vintage gilded frame. Love the look of EVERYTHING! :)

Feeling inspired?? I know I am!!

Happy Thursday!!

Well, I'd have to say the artwork is so AMAZING, whenever it's a presence it certainly makes the room! However, she does have an eye... I love her aesthetic.

My maiden name was Tuberson, but it was supposed to be Toveson and the officials at Ellis Island messed up the spelling. I have never known anyone with the name Tove, but knew it was Swedish. It was my great grandfather Peter Toveson who came here in the early 1900's. My father remembers him as a stoic man. Sorry just had to share that...her name sparked a thought!

It's the combo that is just fabulous. Natural flair is obviously one of the ingredients.

Did you paint the board teal or did you buy it that way? If you painted it - what sort of paint? Does chalkboard paint come in colours other than black?

Hi Mrs Cat! chalkboard paint comes in a number of different colors! :D
