Sharing their lakeside house in Nyköping, Sweden, with hens, two cats and their five children, husband-and-wife artists Pia Kammeborn (@kammebornia) and Dennis Kammeborn (@kingofkammebornia) are the self-professed king and queen of “Kammebornia.” Located on a farm with a 1880s gardener’s house, Kammebornia is an art project and lifestyle, embodying the couple’s focus on beauty and stress-free living. “It’s about every person’s right to live in their own fairytale and to be the king or the queen in your own life,” Pia explains. “‘Love and Play’ is our motto, and we wish the world could be a happier and more playful place.”

Pia is an artist, photographer and writer, and also an avid knitter — creating sweaters, mittens, socks and cardigans since the age of 12. “It has always been a form of therapy for me. I feel calm and relaxed when I knit,” she says. “It’s a kind of magic and I like doing something constructive instead of destructive. It’s a soothing rhythm in the knitting, and I make warm and beautiful things for the people I love.” Pia adds that hardships and sorrows have given way to a renewed appreciation for small joys, like sharing coffee and growing flowers. “My favorite place to knit is in our greenhouse, or close to my darling on the couch, while watching a good movie like My Fair Lady or The Sound of Music or an old black-and-white Hitchcock.”
