I’m thrilled to see the AW2017 news from by Lassen. I love the fact that they’ve focused on functional design for the hallway. Most often it’s the first room people see, when they visit you – and I know ours has been filled with shoes, raincoats and what have you for way too long.
And being the design geek that I am, I’m even more thrilled about the fact that they’ve taken us back to where it all started, namely with the burnished copper Kubus candleholder, just like the first one designed in the 1960s by Mogens Lassen. That’s fantastic news, if you ask me. Now I’ll just have to come up with a solid plan in order for my husband to wrap his head around the fact that I need yet another Kubus candleholder.

I’m sure you’re not surprised to find out that I’m pretty excited about IKEAs collaboration with HAY. I’ll be first in line to get my hands on some of the items, that’s for sure. I’ve collected a (tiny – I wish) shopping list already. Of course, I’ll have to see the YPPERLIG collection irl before making a final decision. However, I’m pretty enthusiastic about what I’ve seen so far. So I’ll show you what’s on my list – as long as you don’t go and buy all of the stuff before me 😉

I don’t really need new posters or prints for our walls – but I always get inspired or should I call it tempted, when I get a mail from Desenio. I’ve got a discount waiting for me, and I just had to stop by their site to check out the selection. Oh darn, it’ too tempting. I could add at least 20 new ones to my basket in a minute.
Here are some of the posters and prints that I would add to my basket, if I were to buy some today. I’ve found some for the whole family – and with a birthday coming up in August, when my boy turns 8, well who knows, maybe he’ll get a poster or two.
1 – Tutu
2 – Let the light in
3 – Ballet dancer
4 – Bat Sky
5 – Rows of Skateboards
6 – Skate Shadow
7 – Monstera Three
8 – When the day is over
9 – Dancer
Shopping, shopping and more shopping. Later this year we’re going to Copenhagen with the kids. The first thing my daughter said was YES! then we can go to Urban Outfitters. She loves the store and she could easily buy the first 100 items there.
To kill time we hit the online shop for inspiration – and then she could make a wishlist of the things she would like to buy. Truth be told, I kind of like some of the things as well, so I don’t mind going in there with her, and a few of the things could end up on my wishlist as well. It’s the perfect mother-daughter store if you ask me. It’s not the clothes we’re after, but it’s the Home & Gifts section.
1. Paddywax Small Concrete Candle
2. Unicorn Sparkle 50/50 Colour Pencils
3. Heart Mirror
4. Say What? Scented mini Eraser set
5. Wire Wall Grid
6. Light-Up LED Heart Sconce
7. Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Camera in Pink
8. Cactus Money Box
9. Fresh’N Rebel Rockbox Cube Pink Wireless Speaker
My kids (and my husband) have been asking me what’s on my wishlist right now – reminding me that Mother’s Day is coming up soon. So I’ve decided to help them a little. All of the things and more can be found on my wishlist on Pinterest.
Right now I’m sitting at our dining room table looking out on a grey Sunday white drinking a cup of coffee. The kids are out playing soccer, and I’m at home writing an application for a job among other things.
It’s been a wonderful weekend full of good people, inspiration, cleaning, movie afternoon with the kids, holiday planning for 2017, wine, g&t, coffee and a granny bun from Penny Lane. I couldn’t ask for much more.
I thought I’ll leave you with some interior inspiration – and the color for today is grey with a hint of white. Enjoy <3
