malmö, beautiful

by kmcopeland

Today was absolutely gorgeous. Sunny, 11 degrees. I even had on short sleeves during my run. SHORT SLEEVES!

I’ve noticed lately that Malmö kind of gets a bad rap. Everyone writes about the high crime rate, the “industrial” feel, and the overall lack of style.

I have to respectfully disagree. I think there’s a lot of charm to any city that has a history of hard work. Maybe it’s not conventionally “pretty,” but it definitely has character. And sure, you won’t see runway looks on the streets of Malmö, but that’s only because people here are edgy and don’t simply mimic what’s “in style.” Instead, they take styles and make them their own. And the high crime rate is just laughable.

I plan on proving people wrong with this here blog, and here’s my first testament to this pretty city:

Rant over. On another note, I love how Instagram makes you an instantly amazing photographer!

Sunday Funday

by kmcopeland

Bolaget is a realty company in Sweden who (I think) takes some of the best pictures of homes and flats for sale. I love going to their website and just browsing their listings – the styling and photography never disappoints and I always end up getting an idea or two.

Today is my lucky day because I just discovered that they have an “Inspiration” section on their website where they have collected some of their best pictures over the years. Here are some of my faves:

Pretty

I normally don’t like a lot of pink, but that last room just made me smile today. Hope you have your own Sunday Funday!
