bohemian home i Copenhagen...

January 11, 2018
let's talk about colours... I have been afraid of colour most of my adult life, both in decor and fashion, but that has somewhat changed and I now have colour in my closet and we also have a little colour in our home.

I love the colour on the wall in the kitchen - it looks SO good together with the brass and gives that Moroccan feel. I recently bought some pillows in that colour and they just warms up everything.
I also love how they've mixed designer pieces with Moroccan blankets and exotic plants. I am also a huge fan of the mattresses on the floor in the living room - it's the perfect place to have a nap or watch tv og read a nice book.

the new look - Birger1962...

January 7, 2018

I've admired Malene Birger's creative mind for years and years. I love to see how her interior style has evolved, from her Nordic, 20's French style with Indian and Moroccan touches, to more 70's chic that's even more ethnic and African. All her homes has her signature maximalistic look that's always under control - something that she might be the only one capable of doing this good! She stays true to her style and doesn't really follow trends - she makes them and I love her for that. 
 It's been three years since Malene Birger launched her first Birger1962 decor collection - a mix of 70's and African inspired pieces in blacks, whites and creams also with hints of turquoise. - See pictures from that collection here. I loved every piece from that collection and the pieces I have from that collection are still favourites in our home. 
 This spring she'll launch THE NEW LOOK - her decor spring 2018 line and she'll also open a showroom in Copenhagen in April. The new collection really show's off the brand's DNA - browns, blacks, creams, stripes and a surprising fresh yellow. The pieces are still ethnic inspired, but not as African as the previous collection - it's more glamorous like a beautiful hotel. Even just a few of the pieces will lift your decor to a more luxe looking space.
A few of the items from the 2014 collection is relaunched, like the beautiful Istanbul lamp, which is so beautiful. I love the cabinets that comes in different sizes and the new London lamp, the striped bedding, the ethnic plates and cups, the different pillows...yeah you get the point. I really like it a lot. 

spring shopping in the winter sale...

January 6, 2018

When I shop it's almost always for Adam, but I thought it was time to do some shopping for myself. And what better time to do so than during the sales. When I'm sale shopping I always shop for the season ahead and not for next winter or summer. I think it's easier to find nice pieces in the summer sale, but did find some really nice pieces that are perfect for spring here in the winter sale -all from my favourite high street brands.

I bought the blazer and the white trousers a while ago, but wanted to include them, since they are both on sale. They will also be part of my capsule wardrobe for spring and summer. Zara is my favourite high street shop. You can really find some great pieces there and I love how they'll reduce the prices almost every week during the sales, which means you can do a really good bargain. I bought the leather shoes at the end of summer and I've worn them so much, so I bought a new pair of them here in the sales.

&other stories is a hit or miss for me - actually often a miss - but I found the two knits, while I went browsing and I know they'll be favourites in the coming season. I also found the seersucker shirt from Cos that I missed out on last summer. Cos is a favourite of mine for shirts.

I didn't buy the Mango pieces yet, since I really prefer shopping in the actual shops than online - or at least see the pieces in real life before ordering online. We don't have Mango in Denmark - yes, they need to open in Copenhagen for sure!- and I hate returning things by post...I especially love their committed line and they make great leather shoes too, so I might just need to start shopping for Mango online...

The flower print pieces are really a surprising pick for me, since I have never owned anything with flowers - or any other print really. But I really like the romantic feel to them and with a pair of jeans and white trainers in spring they'll not be too girly. I'm also trying to add a little colour to my wardrobe - not loud colours - but subtle pastels and neutrals - just a little to spice up my wardrobe a tad.

I've linked to all the pieces and though they might be sold out online, there's still a chance you'll find them in the shops. Did you find anything good in the sales?

saving memories with Nordstjerne...

December 10, 2017

 memories...we try to keep them in our hearts, but slowly they will disappear, if we don't save them. It can be in photos, but also by writing those special moments down on paper. I regret not having started this when Adam was born, because I've lost so many fun things he has done or said, special events or things that I just wish I could remember forever...but have forgotten already...

I recently started writing things down in these suede notebooks from Nordstjerne. Small things he says or memories I just want to keep. My plan is to have some polaroid looking photos printed to put into the books too. I'll probably fill these with memories in no time at all, so notebooks are always on my wishlist. These with the suede cover comes in 6 beautiful colours. A great personal gift for someone you hold dear - as you can fill it with memories you did together, favourite recipes or let the person fill it with their own words. 

a minimal home full of character...

December 6, 2017
this is the home of Yvonne Kone. I love that it is quite minimal, but still full of character. We have always had white walls, but looking at this home I am dreaming of adding hues to our walls - oh and a huge book shelf...
The colour selection is perfect - the terracotta in the hallway, the beige in the dining room and the blue-grey in the rest of the home with burgundy touches like the curtains - really beautiful.

beautiful, classic home in soft hues...

November 29, 2017

there is something very special about this home. I love the mix of classic furniture and the relaxed atmosphere in Aiayu founder Maria H√łgh Heilmann's lovely home. The beautiful knitted pillows from Aiayu mixed with linen pillows gives such a nice and cosy feel. Slow living at its best.
