airy table

Tables are almost becoming like chairs for me, it’s hard to have too many. Just when you get really excited about a new table another comes out seemingly better than the last. I tend to look for something I think can be a classic and keep up as micro t…

a cozy reading nook

I’m happy to share with you another project I finished in collaboration with Target, all about getting your home ready for Fall with a modern farmhouse look.
I really wanted to keep the colors in monochrome neutrals like warm taupes, grey, ivory and brass metallic accents. Stacks of books keep it feeling organic and less rigid than housed in a bookcase and also add texture. The stacks also allow for a reading lamp, candle holder and smaller accessories.

This warm round table has a slight worn look and definitely feels like Fall to me. A pale wooden apple figure, gold edged vase, a large moss knit blanket and rope basket to hold loose papers or notes, create a highly textured space that feels easy and inviting.

our new bedroom

It’s been a month since we moved from our home. I have mixed emotions about the move, it’s a step towards some of our dreams but it’s also leaving a level of comfort that we created for ourselves. I miss the new kitchen, our white floors, the open layout but it’s good to keep looking forward.
The great thing about a move though is you get to purge, purge, purge! It feels so good to get rid of extra things and keep only what we really use and love. Even with fewer things it’s taken this month to fully unpack and if I’m being really honest, there are still 4 boxes of books sitting behind me waiting to be unpacked!

Our new (temporary) bedroom is tiny but I don’t mind it too much. Since Elin is sleeping in our room I have our bed/crib against the wall, which is the only way to fit them in while not feeling suffocated. It’s just a bit funny to me though, the last time my bed was in a corner like this I was a teenager and loathed making my bed.

Some of my favorites things are this wooden coat hanger from Christina Liljenberg Halstrøm, deep blue linen blanket, Muuto Visu chair that doubles as a side table and a stack of my favorite Danish interior magazine Rum.

need

Fall weather has finally shown up and the best part of Autumn are the clothes! Obviously. Nothing looks better or feels better to wear than draped, generous layers in new materials. I fully embrace jeans & jacket weather so this really is the time of year I anticipate the most. Summer is alright but give me sweater weather and I’m a happy girl!
The new things from this lookbook and these Studio Nicholson coats , cropped trousers, and this perfect short sleeved jacket are all so perfectly minimal and refined. Can I say I want them all? Looks like I just did.

moroccan rugs

Major love for this shop, full of incredible, colorful Beni Ourain rugs.

Danes in Greece

Over the weekend I read about this renovated blacksmithery in Greece that serves as a second home or vacation home to three Danish architects and their families. There’s is something romantic to me about the idea of a second home, and one shared with other families who go for walks and cook dinner together. A place off the grid a bit, surrounded by water in a quiet city. The interior though is just as romantic as the lifestyle with lots and lots of wood, iron details and a respectful mixture of new and old.
“It’s important when you convert an old building to be careful not to remove the soul of what was there. If everything is renewed, it becomes too perfect,” Dorte Mandrup-Poulsen says.

Last week I was introduced to a great company called Instantly Framed whose app and store make it super convenient to print and frame Instagram photos. I’m really impressed by the idea and the whole process was incredibly easy and quick, truly from beg…

my toolbox

The lovely people at Pink Apple Designs sent this Vitra toolbox my way to use however I’d like. The hard part was choosing just 1 place to use this because it’s so versatile, I could use it in a hundred different ways. For now though it’s bedside, hold…

Starting the week off with a grey/wood combo and preparing for this week’s work. A few styling jobs coming soon.

blue

I keep seeing bit of deep blue that I’m really drawn to. Blues and greens mixed with moody greys and black sound like my current favorite combination.This corner is a prime example of what I mean. A nice break from the bright whites of Summer and perfe…

back with a fashion video

I’ve been gone for a while now. We are officially moved in, though there are some lingering boxes in the office and a few projects that need to be finished. I am however glad to be back online (it took 2 weeks to have internet connected at this house!!…

a new rail & news




The wonderful and incredibly talented Annaleena sent us one of her rails recently and I think it was exactly what this blank wall in our kitchen needed to holding towels and brushes.
The chem glass, tin box & brush are from one of my favorites, Betong Gruvan.

As strange as this is to say, and soon after I hung this great new piece, we have decided to move! We’re in the process of selling our house but in the meantime we will be in a temporary place for about a year (hopefully less). Crazy right?!
I’m going to miss this place where my son & daughter were born, which we just bought recently and were slowly making it into a place we felt truly at home. However we have bigger dreams right now, dreams that might be taking us in a completely different direction that we need to take steps towards. As vague as that is I will have to wait and see how things unfold myself before I can share more.
Just don’t worry, I will keep updating my IG with news and you can look forward to seeing our new (very temporary) little place in the meantime.

Happy almost weekend!

I refreshingly genuine look at this warm home.

Autumn is probably my favorite season, for the weather but especially for the clothes. Boots, long sweaters and jeans are my ideal things to wear but obviously all wrong for hot Summers so it’s always quite a relief when Fall comes. A few things I’m cu…

found: blog designs made easy

Over the years my blog has had a few design/layout changes, I’m sure you’ve noticed. I’ve also had many people email me about my layouts, wanting to know how they were designed and who helped me? I’m so grateful to say Ana Degenaar has been my go-to for all of my design and coding needs. She’s always been my right hand when I’ve needed help with a widget or need to change/add a function on the blog. I’m telling you, I could sing her praises all day!
I value her relationship so much because not only has her help saved me when I was in over my head (many times) but she’s been a genuine friend who’s truly talented! Being able to come up with a design and having someone to implement it has been extremely helpful in creating a space that represents me, and I could not do it without Ana‘s help!

For my fellow bloggers out there I want to share with you this great resource, her shop! Ana has these simple, elegantly modern layouts that are all so good, it’s hard to choose only 1. Her blog as well is proof that she’s the real deal.
Blogmilk shop makes it easy to choose & download your layout and for those of us who are coding illiterate, this really makes it easy to have something beautifully designed that can be personalized to you. Plus if you find that you still want something slightly off the grid, she does custom work as well.

Thanks Ana!

details



It’s Monday & I’m feeling tired (surprise, surprise!) from the weekend of a little one who wouldn’t sleep and another who’s been sick. But I’m here and feeling inspired by this apartment. The bathroom, bedroom and kitchen are beautiful but it’s these quiet details that I love most.

Yvonne Koné’s new store



Nude pink, fig tree, iron and brass with worn wooden floors are the sophisticated elements that compose Yvonne’s brand new flagship store in Copenhagen. I can personally attest to the quality and beauty of her bags as I own a travel sized version of her design and it is an heirloom piece that I’ve already used multiple times. Now her store is the perfect display for her goods, with romantic colors and deep hues and a pink that’s similar to one I’ve been working with already, so I’m definitely a fan.

The space was designed by Studio Oliver Gustav, read & see more about it (including ‘before’ shots) here and if you’re in Copenhagen, won’t you see it in person for me?

inspiration now

A few things I find inspiring right now. Firstly are these new wool pillows from Danish artist and ceramicist Gry Fager. I like the pattern of pieces in all white wool that composes each cushion, I think one of each would be just great. Some really ins…

blue fantastic

Dark blue mixed with natural woods, a little green and plenty of white space is one of my favorite looks or color combinations right now. This is such a great example of that.
