Hjørring Central Library

Hjørring is the city where I grew up. Hjørring Central Library was my second home. And it didn’t look like this, when I was a child. But still it was heaven to me. When I think back, I still remember lots of great times there, and it was always an adventure to go searching for a new book. Books have always played a huge role in my life – so needless to say, Hjørring Central Library has a special place in my heart.

A few years ago, the library moved into this new space. The designers Rosan Bosch and Rune Fjord created magic, and the result is remarkable. Japanese TV even travelled all the way up north, to do a show about the new library. I’m thrilled that my kids can now enjoy this wonderful place, when they visit my parents.

The latest issue of Babiekins Magazine has an article about what they call “possible the coolest library on the planet”. Enjoy the pictures.

Another day another dream

I’m still looking for cool prints and posters for our home, and I came across this cool Etsy shop. The owner is yumalum, who wants to brighten your day and home with his work. I’m tempted to add that his mission is accomplished. I couldn’t think of  better way to brighten my home.

The prints are truly something. I cannot decide which one to get. I’m really drawn to the “Another day another dream” print, because that’s kind of the way I’m feeling right now. However, I also love the one “I want to lounge with you”. For once it’s my all time favourite chair, but it’s also a really cool print.

You’ll find his shop here and if you want more he also has a blog right here.

Little studio

Little studio is a cute little shop that I would like to share with you guys. And don’t worry, shipment is worldwide, and in April and May it’s free if you buy a pillow. I think I might be tempted to buy something myself. The design is wonderful, and I can imagine several items in my home already. The posters for little people are so cute too. Check out the shop right here.

For like ever

My husband doesn’t like them at all, but I’ll figure out a way to get one into the apartment anyway. I just like the cuteness of this poster. And the colors are pretty neat. I just can’t decide, which one to pick. I think I’ll put it in my daughter’s room. When she gets older, I’m sure she’ll appreciate it.

Susanna Vento style

Susanna Vento‘s home has been features in the magazine Dwell. Susanne is a Finish stylist and she authors the very stylish blog Varpunen.

Three things I like about the home:

– I love the fact that her personal style is all over the place, eben in the kid’s room. The graphic details are amazing.

– The lamp in the kitchen. It reminds me of a circus, in the best possible way of course.

– The decorations on the walls. Very personal, and they give the place a very nice atmosphere.
