love the amazing light, the simplicity and the perfect serenity inside
While I patiently wait for some cosy sunny Summerdays outside....

Kitchenlove - KALVIA

I love the way Ikea focuses on new kitchen designs and kitchen life in general.
This time Ikea has worked with fashion designer Martin Bergström and
 I totally fell for it when I saw the amazing pressimages! 

The result of this collaboration is KALVIA, where six different designs
 from Martin's paintings (abstract, bold patterns) have been printed
 directly on our high-quality kitchen cabinets in six different sizes
The perfect contrast with the stunning countertop in walnut with a
classic herringbone pattern really made me smile!


Reform at Kinfolk gallery

 Even though it is not so long ago that I was in Copenhagen, 
I would like to have been there the past week and admire these designs!

Lifestyle magazine Kinfolk has opened  its own gallery in Copenhagen 
(where the magazine is also based now) with a temporary exhibition of 
Designers from across Europe contributed 15 pieces to the Reform Design Biennale

The Reform Design Biennale was founded in 2014 by designers Maria Bruun, 
Jens Dan Johansen and Rasmus Baekkel Fex  as a challenge for craftsmen, artists and
designers to encourage on challenging  traditional ways of thinking in order to
 investigate and create new ideas, processes, craft and technologies

The Reform exhibition  ran from 9 to 27 June 
find all about it here and here


stylish and creative

The beautiful mix of subtile soft tones, 
wood (really love the chairs) , grey, black and white, 
 the great original details as the herringbone pattern floor, the stylish staircase, 
the very decorative white brick wall...  and ofcourse  the amazing and
 creative styling ideas of Josefin Haag (always inspired by her still lifes) 
make this small duplex apartment look like the family home that I'am
always dreaming of...  Yes please!

perfect inspiration to start this new week...

Botanical greens

Starting this new blogpost with some green inspiration,  
 This week I looked back to these photos that I took at the amazing
 Botanisk Have at Copenhagen when we where enjoying our springbreak in
 Denmark a while ago and where I told you about in my last blogpost... 
It was a short break where we had a fantastic time while exploring the largest
 island of Denmark - Sjealland -  but also a break which ended up in a very sad way.

Maybe you have noticed I have not been blogging since that break and
 if you follow me on instagram you might have read that the reason
 for this absence was the not expected weakening (she was suffering from cancer) and 
the sudden dead of my mother.
 These last weeks have been very difficult for me and my family and it's very hard
 to believe this happend but I am thankful for the great and special moments
 that we had with a mom like her... She was very proud on us,
 her children and her grand children,  and she always encouraged me to do the things
 that I love the most... I really had and still have a very difficult time
 but I am slowly finding my way and trying to move forward. 

These last few days I have admired so much beautiful ideas, photos and interiors
 that inspired me and leasurely gave me the desire to restart blogging. 
 It's so nice to find energy in things that we love and like to do most of all, 
Being different and creative is one of the most beautiful things on earth... 

About the Botanical Garden: Botanisk Have is located in the heart of Copenhagen. The garden contains the largest collection of living plants and the only genebank for wild plants. The purpose of the Botanical Garden is to maintain and develop scientific collections of living and preserved plants and fungi and make them available for research, teaching and public information. The garden is affiliated to the largest danish herbaria collections with plants and fungi from all over the world.


weekend inspiration

love the amazing harmonious atmosphere at this apartment 
 created by the mix of warm natural tones, vintage finds, 
 the great stylish accessories in black, grey and white and fresh greens

this gorgeous apartment (from the 1930's) seen at Alvhem really inspired me!
love the three rooms in file, bathing in light by the presence of the amount of Windows,
the original double doors that separates the rooms and the amazing
 creative stylingwork ...  just love it all!!!

Wish you all a great weekend!

ps. I am starting the new month with a short break that we will spend in Denmark :)
really looking forward to explore Sjælland, with my family this coming week
having lot's of fun, doing some shopping in Copenhagen, admire the beautiful nature
and just being lazy...  you can find me on instagram during my break, feel free to meet me HERE!

Muuto news

Danish brand Muuto has introduced their new collection and when I opened my mailbox today
 I was attracted immediately by the amazing and inspiring images of their campaign...

I really liked the simple and elegant zigzag pattern of the PLY rugs which is based on
 traditional weaving methods and designed by Margrethe Odgaard 
but also by the new CONTROL lamp and the LEAN lamp. 

For me the real eyecatcher of the new additions are the amazing 
"FRAMED" mirrors with its color tinted glass in rose, taupe and grey and available 
in different shapes. The goal of design company Anderssen & Voll was 
 to design a mirror that was more than a smooth surface. 
I think Frame has become a decorative design object don't you think so? 

The new additions will be available in stores in April/May and I can't wait to admire them!
