6 wall lamps for your bedside

To kick off the week, I’m sharing a few favorite wall lamps that would be ideal for a bedside or reading nook. Personally I’ve been looking for a lamp for my own side of the bed and there’s a good chance it will end up being one of these. I’m not too p…

An unchanged room

At home in our dining room, and if you follow me on Instagram you already saw this! This space has more or less consisted of the same furniture and lighting for years, the bespoke cabinets I designed were installed about a year ago and are the most rec…

Ultra stylish residence in South Yarra

A stunning home in a district of Melbourne is filled with sculptural furniture (including the Clerici chair I love), Asplund Tati coffee table, Carl Hansen &Son’s CH88 chair, Gubi’s black marble table, and the Mantis BS2 wall lamp.

Using yellow in interiors

In the past I have been opposed to yellow in general, speaking out against it and then only mildly in favor of it in posts past. Generally speaking I’m not one to get excited about bright colors, but what’s the point of an opinion if you can’t change it? Lately I’ve seen more golden mustard yellows and I am really warming up to the look, especially when paired with another warm neutral like a pale brown or taupe.

Above is pictured a project by Claude Missir and features Synapse pendant lights from Apparatus Studio.

A bathroom with an amazing yellow sink and toilet.

I’ve also gathered a few more favorites in this golden yellow shade below, including a non-interior piece, a dress by Lauren Manoogian that is just the perfect warm color for Spring.

Apartment Rådmansgatan 70B styled by Annaleena for Alexander White

Designed by Paul Hedqvist and built in 1957, a renovated home with large windows and kitchen from Kvänum gets a new style. Thanks to Annaleena who employed the help of some of her own products in the form of candleholders and tables, the space has a unique style that’s modern and lush. The warm cabinets in the kitchen against the steel backslash is surprisingly lovely.

Tables and candleholders from her shop, the beautiful Gubi Stay sofa, mirrored table from Perspective Studio, Fritz Hansen Series 7 chairs, Hem’s Key side table, Taccia lamp by Flos (which I’ve been seeing so much of lately) the Mantis wall lamp, and the beautiful suede boxes and trays by Nordstjerne.

a cosy family home, and these grey pedestals

The dining room in this apartment is so great, and maybe I like it because it has similar furniture to my own! We have the Gubi Semi pendant with a black table, ours is from Muuto, and some Muuto Visu chairs. What’s even better in this home are the grey pedestals Josefin used to style the room with.
Funny enough I have been coveting some tubular pedestal tables, procrastinating though as I’ not sure where I’d put them in our small house. As yet I’m still undecided but I’ll share ultimately what I end up doing.

See above for my pedestal picks along with accessories to sort of ‘create the look’.

Also this child’s room, which I don’t talk much about on the blog but I love looking at kids rooms, especially ones with sweet details but still pared back and a bit sparse. From experience I know it is too easy to let their spaces become overloaded with stuff, so a kids room with ‘just enough’ is the most appealing to me. Also, you can find the bunny lamp here and grid box here.

gift wishlist

A little wishlist for myself for Christmas, although I’d also be perfectly happy to simply spend the quality time with my family, any of these would also do! ;)

a warm, minimal hotel in Germany

To say I cannot wait to go back to Europe would be a gross understatement. We haven’t been on a trip for a while, though we’ve talked at length about whether we should go to LA or wait a bit longer and take the kids to Europe instead but part of me is ready to just jump in the car and drive any place, any getaway sounds great right now. It certainly doesn’t help when I see places like this hotel in Münster, Germany.
Even though it’s in Germany, there’s quite a few Danish pieces that compose the interior including Gubi’s beetle chair and lounge tables, Bellevue lamp designed by Arne Jacobsen and Panton’s flowerpot pendant lamp.
The colors in the hotel are very inviting, ranging from muted pinks to brown to gold, the overall look is very elegant but also very comforting together.

Gubi re-styled

The 2,000 sq meter Gubi showroom in Copenhagen has recently been re-styled (if anyone knows who to credit with this, be sure to leave a comment!) into living scenes with new product, live plants and flowers.
Pictured is their Beetle Chair, which is a favorite of mine, with swivel base designed by GamFratesi in a home office type of setting.

interview with Gam Fratesi



Yellow Trace conducted an insightful interview with design duo Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi. I particularly liked seeing all the initial sketches and studio photos, the process of concept to production is such an interesting one. (you might remember when I blogged about this mobile design from the Stockholm Furniture Fair)
Read more about how the duo met and began GamFratesi and their body of work is impressive including work for Gubi, Restaurant Verandah, Fredericia and Ligne Roset.
