For Valentines and forever after: The most lovable stories from our community

We believe that behind every photo unfolds a story. Therefore we're dedicating a full post to some of our favourite love stories from our community. Let's get carried away by the love and enjoy! 

#FramingLife by @franksay: ”This is Stefan and I. We met two years ago in Cape Town through our shared love for kitesurfing. I’m lucky to share my biggest passions in life with him and my favourite moments are those when we go for a surf together, just him and me and the sea. We are lucky to being able to travel the world together and spending so much precious time with each other. Stefan supports me in a very special way, and still after two years, my heart beats faster every time he turns around and look at me.

#FramingLife by @aimforhappiness: "A picture is worth a thousand words - It’s an expression I really like since it describes my love for photography. And the love of my life was literally discovered through the camera lens. I was 21, he was 26 . I remember it so clearly and it was not love at first site, to be frank. But Esben was very determined and did not give up - eventually we went on a date. It was as if he knew already, that it was him and me. He contracted a deal with a publishing house and asked me to be the model for a book cover. I was only going to hold an elephant in my hands with the camera focusing only on that. Elefants are symbols of happiness and that day I held our happiness in my hands. Since then, it’s been us for 18 years.  We both share the love for photography and to immortalise life with each other and our daughters. But it’s not only the act of capturing these moments that I value, it’s the photographs in themselves. As they grow older, they keep on telling all these remarkable stories of our everyday life and I feel thrilled knowing that they will live on through our daughters. It’s the magic photos encapsulate that makes me love the act of capturing them.  So this is both a declaration of love towards the photo but also to my husband with whom I see the world though the camera lens with. If there is one thing I never doubt in this world, it’s us!

#FramingLife by @rebolo: "I love Lina, she's the most beautiful friend you can imagine. Although we have lived in different cities for a few years and don't talk as often, we always know where we have each other. We have traveled and discovered parts of the world together and share so many wonderful memories. But my best memory with her was when she met my daughter for the first time. To see someone be so touched and happy for one's sake is really what true friendship and LOVE is all about. I want to give her a Memory Box filled with moments so that she can be reminded of all our wonderful memories.

#FramingLife by @brgmnanna: "I love Leonie, my best friend, my soul. What’s so special about her is the fact that since we met 9 years ago when working at the same restaurant in Norway, there’s been something cosmic about our relationship. After only knowing each other a short while we ended up traveling Brazil for 3 months. Since then it’s been us. For many years we lived apart until we finally ended up in the same city, shared an apartment for two years until we found our other soul mates and husbands to be. We still live nearby, sharing the same interests with a bond still as strong as it always has been. To describe it shortly, she is family to me. And this summer she is getting married. I couldn’t be happier to be there to share this day. For the love of life with her, I’d like to dedicate a box of love. Simply a Memory Box filled with amazing love stories that we’ve shared through out the years of soul-like friendship.

#FramingLife by @lykkelitenogmamma "My son is my favorite human being. From the very start my test showed positive - I loved you right away, you made me feel that i could do anything, nothing else mattered at that moment. My love for you grew everyday, still i did not know how it would be like, too have you outside of my belly, but i could not wait. Then the day you were born, my feelings exploded - in so many directions, I was so in love with you, little one, but also scared. Scared of all the things that could happen, but at the same time all of these feelings made me strong - for you always! With you by my side, growing everyday into this perfect little human being, I’m so proud. Proud to be your mom. With a few beats of your heart, you changed our lives forever.  A love story to a loved one is the most perfect and personal gift, regardless the year. Go tell yours!

Framkalla Stories No. 02: Jannicke -Aim for happiness, aim for art

Mother, creator, photographer, interior stylist, consultant, social media manager, blogger… Meet Jannicke Valen, the inspiring woman behind @aimforhappiness who curates everything from her own life, to Instagram feeds and interior concepts for others with great skill and instinctive feel. She’s a trained graphic designer and interior stylist, but from there she does everything around it and in between.

”I’m a creative person who aim to tell the good stories in life. A day at work is never the same - I do everything from home styling, bigger interior projects, styling and photo commissions, graphic design and colour scheming to running social media channels and writing articles and blog posts for companies. My own blog is also a part of my profession, and I feel really lucky to have the opportunity to inspire my readers. Everything strives from creativity and that’s my pure drive.  

Her own blog aimforhappiness.com is a platform for visual inspiration and great guidance when it comes to interior, photography and styling. Her work is a mix of physical projects communicated through digital platforms. Her engagement, knowledge and interest for curating life in social media channels is clear:

”Social media to me equals possibilities. It’s been a stepping stone for different ideas and has offered possibilities I would not have wanted to be without. It’s an easy way to create new networks with people interested in and driven by the same things as well as it introduces you to new trends and new ways of thinking. 

And as for us, her main and most important social media channel is Instagram:

”I love how the photo becomes the main focus and the way those photos tells stories in themselves. To me, Instagram is my visual portfolio, a platform that showcases what I do and what I can in a delicate and simple way. And I love photography! Since social media plays a big roll in all my work, I am happy to see that more and more companies opens up their eyes to all the possibilities social media can provide for your business. But it also puts pressure on you as a creator - it’s a constantly shifting sphere where you need to think in new ways and work hard to keep up. 

Aimforhappiness is Aimforart

As an addition to everything she’s already managing, Jannicke runs and administrates a photo art influenced webbshop called aimforart.com

”It’s a webbshop focusing on photo art. We are committed to the best possible adaptation of the images to make them fit the customers homes. We are willing to help with everything from the actual image in itself to special editing requests or finding the right fit and frame material. Our aim is to democratise photo art and to make it available to everyone who wants to have it in their homes.

And for a while now, Aimforart has been a side project that sprung from a demand from their friends wanting their photographs in their homes, but during 2018 they will put some actual hard work into the project. 

”I have years of experience from printing and Esben, my husband, is a professional photographer so we kind of felt we have what it takes to conquer that dream. We have faith in this idea and we want to take the ordinary poster that’s so popular these days to the next level. 

And we too really do think it’s a brilliant idea. In fact we find it so good we’re collaborating with Aimforart by printing a range of products for them. That’s synergy at its best. 

The meaning of colour

Colourful as she is, Jannicke is also an ambassador for Nordsjö Norway. Her interest in colour is quite obvious when looking at her feed, her home and her creations. In a smooth and delicate way it all comes together so brilliantly. We find it both refreshing and truly inspiring!

Colourful details and magic views in the home of Jannicke

Colourful details and magic views in the home of Jannicke

”I love colours. It adds something truly unique to your home and your interior. And color doesn’t necessarily have to be found on the walls. When I do home styling the most important thing is to highlight the wishes from my clients. I find it as interesting to style homes with white walls and pick up colours with other details instead. But some kind of colour is necessary in all homes, haha. 

So how often does she re-paint her own home?, we can’t help but wondering. Well, not too often - yet:

”We’ve only lived a year and a half in our home so I’ve only re-painted three times since then. But I actually have my own colour for Nordsjö coming up named Aimforhappiness Peony that I’ll put on the walls soon. So there's always some kind of project related to paint in the pipe… 

To sum this all up, we got hold of Jannickes best 4 when it comes to interior: 

  1. The atmosphere and the vibe you wish your home to reflect is the most important element when it comes to interior
  2. Make it personal - build around those things that are meaningful to you
  3. Create a wholeness with colours. Fill your home with different colours but let them intertwine creating colour scales or let the contrast be very clear and given
  4. Find something eye catching that reflects your style, something that differentiates you from the rest of the crowd

Thank you Jannicke for sharing your visdom with us. We wish you the best of luck and inspiration and we’ll follow your colourful life with great curiosity and interest!

Framkalla Stories No. 01 - Meet world traveler and kitesurfer Johanna-Catharina

Welcome to our new series of chronicles covering inspiring people living life their own way while mastering the art of curating interesting and visually beautiful social feeds.

First out is our stylish friend, world traveler, kitesurfer, lifestyle blogger and influencer Johanna-Catharina, the inspiring woman behind @franksay. We met up to get hold of her best tips for editing, curating and exploring life in general.

From left: Stylish in Cape Town, a kite surfing session in sunny Brazil and a mind blowing trekk to the Table Top Mountain, Cape Town.

J-C was born and raised in Varberg on the Swedish west coast. Since the year of 18 she's been more around the world than at home and a year back Tarifa in Spain became her home base. At this moment, she's exploring the magic city of Cape Town, South Africa, for her 6th year in a row. 

"I visit Cape Town every year and not only for the world class kite surfing but also because it has it all - the energy, the culture, the people it attracts, the food, it's all indescribable. It's my best tip to anyone who's looking for a new place to visit, regardless your interests.

Except for Cape Town, her other two favourite destinations in the world are Tarifa, her current home base, and Western Australia. All good places for mind blowing content and kite surfing, as her feed exemplifies. But to curate an interesting feed with a good color toned outcome it takes a lot more than just beautiful places. 

"I use my iPhone, my compact camera and my GoPro to capture my life. I then start to edit in Lightroom using the "auto tone" to pick up the right lightning and popping effect in the image. I then move on to the VSCO app to adjust colours and tonality. My favourite filters are the A9 and A10. To make sure it looks good in my feed I plan and preview with the Preview App. And then finally, it's ready to post, haha. 

But Instagram to her is a lot more than just an app for posting photos and creating a beautiful feed. 

"It has become my visual diary and also my main resource for inspiration and to keep up with new trends. It's more like an online magazine: a perfect place to get inspired, explore and keep contact with friends and people around the world without the need of long messaging. A picture with it's small caption says a lot in itself.

All the great benefits of Instagram though, there's still nothing like the feeling of getting your favourite moments into print.  

"It would be such a shame to not do anything with these images that actually matters a lot. They so easily stack up on a hard drive somewhere and you rarely look at them at all. Instead I choose to print them. Already when I started to choose what images to print, all the fun began. It made me re-live all these moments and the process made me quite happy, actually. In just a couple of days they were delivered in luxurious packaging and superb quality. I'm gonna frame some, gift away some and simply store the rest in my Memory Box.
Fun fact: J-C loves the croissant. Well, in fact she loves it so much she inked one on her hand. That's dedication 🥐

Do you also have a camera roll full of memories? Get started now:

Framkalla Inspo No. 04 - Store your best of 2017 with pride:

Before entering a new year of upcoming adventures, we think it's about time to remember what has been. And what's better than getting those sweet memories off your packed device and into your life?

Breathe life into your memories while keeping them close: Store them in one (or a few) of our stylish Memory Boxes.

Breathe life into your memories while keeping them close: Store them in one (or a few) of our stylish Memory Boxes.

TIP:
Go through your photos and heart mark your favourites to easily get them all in one album (you find them easily under the album named Favourites). Another great tip to carry along with you for this upcoming year is to favourite your favourites as they happen - that way you automatically have your favourites selected and ready when it's about time to print them. 

A Memory Box can store up to 90 photos. Print them all at once or let your box fill up over time. 

Flipping through memories with a loved one. Telling all those great stories over and over...
