Jenny at Dos Family

Good day!

I am Jenny Brandt from the Swedish blog Dos Family.
Thank you Grace for inviting me and my blog partner Isabelle Halling McAllister, for this guest blog opportunity.

Isabelle and I have been blogging together for a year now. I photograph homes for our “Dos Visits” and Isabelle creates, crafts and alternates stuff for her posts.

We are a perfect blog-match.

We both have small daughters and newborn baby boys.

We both love to blog about home decoration and kids-stuff.

We both like colorful and quirky design that has a lot of humor.

We both work from home. Isabelle works as an interior decorator in Stockholm and I am a photographer from Skåne Sweden.

Also we are both crazy about our homes and thought we should start our week here with some photos from our own places.

I live in a house in Skåne, Sweden with Jens, an illustrator , who also works at home. We have one daughter, Viola, 5 years old and Baby Frank, 2 months. Here are some details from my house.

And tomorrow, Isabelle will show you her apartment. See you then!

    Two of my favorite blogs combine!!

  15. Gideon says:

    The painting in the second photo made me swoon. I’m jealous!

  16. lisen says:

    I was reading another blog, and saw the picture of the woman (you?) on the sofa reading, and my eyes were drawn to the table cloth instantly. “Now that must be Swedish?!” I thought. Then I saw the the title of the book and knew for sure. At second thought of course everything from the mat via the sofa to the radiators and the shoes are dead giveaways… So often when I take a liking to an interior it turns out it’s Swedish. In my case, the theory that you like what is familiar seems right…

  18. Hanna says:

    Oh, i loved the book Jag vill också ha ett syskon, when I was growing up in Southern Sweden. The dos family-style is so much home for me, i love it. Keep up the good work! Kramar!
