Black and white photographs

Lately, I’ve come across some beautiful black and white photographs, which I’m seriously considering above our sofa.

The first picture I’ve found on Coco Lapine’s shop. It’s called Black Beach. It’s a beautiful picture of a rock formation touched by the ocean on the black beach, photographed in Iceland. The second is also from her shop, and it’s called Snowy Tree, which was photographed in Munich. The third picture Decordots’ shop. It’s called Rainy Day, and it’s a photo of raindrops on a window.

I’m thinking about buying them all, and then change the photographs on the wall from time to time. The Snowy Tree would be perfect this time of year.

Skandinavisk in my home

skandinavisk

I kind of like the idea of a scent diffuser – I don’t know if it’s the minimal design, the names or simply a combination.

I’ve been avoiding scented candles for years, because I got a headache, when I had to walk past them in the different stores. The smell was simply too much for me.

However, I think I might be able to enjoy the scent diffusers in my home. I’m leaning towards Dag, Nat, Hygge, Koto or Ro. I might also be tempted to buy the small combi pack with the mini scented candles Hygge, Koto, Ro just to try it out. They’ve madet to my Christmas wishlist this year, which I’ll show you in a few posts time. Until then, I wish you a lovely Monday, and I hope your week will be nice and calm.

Interior inspiration – bunkbed

It’s Friday and I’m off to a dance party at the school. The calendar is packed with meetings and activities these weeks. I hardly have any time to finish some of the interior projects, which we’ve started. Tomorrow, I’m going to the Finders Keepers fair here in Aalborg – I hope to return with a lot of inspiration and maybe a thing or two.

One of the things which inspired me lately is a bunkbed project by Susanna Vento. What a beauty – and it’s so practical. I love the storage space in each bunk. You can see many others photos of the project on Instagram #projectbunkbed – it’s almost a step by step guide.

Smart Space Saving Tips on BoConcept

A while back, I was asked to write something about Smart Space Saving Tips for BoConcept. It is now live on their website and you’ll find some cool tips from some talented ladies. As a family of four, living in the city, space saving ideas are always on top of my mind. Therefore, I was pleased, when they asked me to contribute. If you decide to check it out, you might as well take a look at a few cool office accessories.

A Sosterne Grene Christmas

The Christmas catalogue has landed. As some of you are well aware of, I’m quite a Christmas fan. I love decorating the house, love the cozy atmosphere, love baking with the kids and love finding small advent presents. For me it’s not really Christmas, if I haven’t been to Hamburg in late November/start december. There is something so cheesy, and yet so wonderful about all the Christmas markets and activity in the city. It’s the perfect way to kick off a wonderful season.

One of the other ‘before Christmas traditions’ that I’ve got is to go to Sostrene Grene quite a few times. I always buy something from their Christmas collection, and this year is no exception. Today I want to share some of my favourite items from this year’s collection and their Christmas catalogue.

5 lamps on my wishlist

It’s funny… I’m doing this every fall. By this I mean start looking at different lamps for our home. Somehow I never quite finish this project, or maybe I just buy the wrong lamps (I’m sure that’s what my husband would say ;)) But the fact is that it’s pitch black when we wake up every morning now, and we need some lamps.

Some of the lamps I’ve had a crush on for years, and some of them I’ve just added to my wishlist. I’m looking for lamps in our kitchen near the stairs, one for our dining room, one for the hallway and one for my little guy’s room. Here’s what I’ve come up with so far.

1. Wall lamp Multi from Ellos
2. Muuto wood lamp – white
3. Work lamp from Biltema
4. Please Wait to be Seated Planet lamp – pink
5. JWDA Concrete lamp from Menu
