About Mackapär and Ulrika

Mackapär is my blog and inspiration site. And also me and my husband’s company, a small and creative engineering firm. We are both engineers by proffession and very passionate about interior decoration and design. In Mackapär we combine those sides to something, hopefully good as we have revived the Triplex Lamp. The lamp was designed by Johan Petter Johansson (who also invented the adjustable spanner) almost 100 years ago and we have made our version of the lamp with the great honour. We have made it with lots of hard work and passion and with sustainability in mind. I am very proud that the lamp is locally produced in south Sweden and that it is a piece of engineering history and design.
As far back as I can remember, I have been interested in photography. I started a photo blog in 2007 and that opened my eyes to blogging and the blogging society that I came to love. In 2010 I started interior blogging on Mackapär. I find so much inspiration through blogs and meet so many great people that are just like me this way. For me it’s also a way of showing my pictures instead of saving them in a big pile in the computer. I love the captured moment that a photography is.

To me, internet is all about the pictures. Webshops sell by images, and styling is a growing business as more and more companies are aware of the great power of a good image. A perfect interior photo can spread via blogs, Pinterest, FB and so on in a crazy way in just minutes. And you reach the whole world. I think that is such an inspiring thought and really cool development. And I want to be a part of that.
