Louis Poulsen’s PH5 lamp

The weekend is almost over but I wanted to leave you with an image of the classic Louis Poulsen PH5 lamp. A little history about the creation of PH5:

Poul Henningsen developed the PH 5 in 1958 for Louis Poulsen as a response to the constant changes to light bulbs at the time.

“I have designed a PH fixture which can be used with any kind of light source, Christmas lights and 100 W metal-filament bulbs.”

The name PH 5 came from the size of the 50cm wide main shade and over time has seen many updates to accommodate changing light sources. In the early 90’s it was modified to accommodate an energy saving light bulb. The metal plate was also changed to a frosted glass plate to be more energy efficient. Just a few years ago a new set of 5 high gloss colors were introduced to the public.

Cyber Monday sales

I’d like to say that I stay away form the hype of these holiday sales but that’s not entirely true. You definitely won’t find me waking up at 4 am to stand in line at some storefront but online sales are totally different. Is it because I can shop in bed, maaaaybe! But it’s also because I like to get my Christmas presents purchased ahead of time so that most of December can be spent doing things like baking or spending time with family.
So if you’re anything like me, you’ll be making some purchases today while things are still on sale. Here are a few of my favorites!

6 things I liked this week (from last week)

A brief overview of some of the things I saw and liked last week, delayed because we went on a quick trip out of town last week and I was enjoying disconnecting for those days! The whole family visited friends, spent the day at the beach flying kites and ate at some new restaurants. It was nice to to step out of our routine and stay up late, eat candy (mostly the kids), and make it all up as we go along. But now we’re back home and back in our rhythm so this is a catch up from what I saw online back then.
Nordiska Kok styled by the talented and dynamic duo, Sundling/Kickén.

Autumn news from COS, I like the brown tones in these images as well as that shaped skirt.

This Cobra lamp from Artilleriet swivels 360 ° around to project light in different directions. Cobra was designed by Elio Martinelli in 1968 and was of the first lighting fixtures made with a special resin casting system. Also it’s this functional sculptural type of piece that I love so much right now.

Next-level 5 strand braids from the Jill Sander’s runway, I’m putting this on my weekend to do list of tutorials to youtube!

Maiju’s beautiful styling of Swedish Midnatt‘s new organic bedding line, this Dromedary color is heading for Elin’s bed now and is a very simple way of making her room feel more seasonal Fall ready.

These clay, wax-filled jars from H&M are candles and they come in three color ways and two sizes, the largest being a lidded jar. I like that the candles can live two lives, once the wax has burned down clean out the remainder and reuse your jar to store small things like cotton balls or other toiletries!

A nearly perfect house, it just needs to be filled with the right decor

Every so often I come across a space or a home that makes my jaw drop. Like it has taken all of my own longings and dreams that I’ve carried with me over the years and made them into a physical, livable space. For someone else! Ok, it’s not like the EXACT manifestation of all my dreams come true but this place designed by Mclaren.Excell in the UK, it comes pretty close to having all the essentials that I could want in a structure. Of course this is sans decor and interior styling, just the bare bones house, all ready to be moved into and personalized with your own belongings.

I’m imagining some large green plants next to the windows, soft velvety rugs in the living space with an oversized sofa and floor lamp. Some candles and books, throw blankets to add softness to the concrete and wood flooring. I’m not thrilled with the concrete flooring in the lower level of the home, I prefer the wood floors like what you find on the second level of this home as it feels softer and more forgiving than concrete but hey, that could be fixed.

Below are a few things that I would personally want to put in this home which is nearly perfect in every way.

bedside, currently

I haven’t shown any photos from home lately, we’re making a few changes and I’m waiting on a chair, some shelves and a kitchen cart so in the meantime I think everything feels so unfinished to me or at least for what I have in my head.
Our room is also a but incomplete but I did get a new side table and I like how it blends into the wall.
