ferm Living AW15 – The new lines

Today, I want to share some of my favourite pieces from ferm living‘s AW15 collection. Ferm living AW15 Here is what I’ve picked out from the new collection. I really like the Turn Sofa and the Turn Daybed. Really beautiful and simple and they go straight to my list of candidates for our dining room corner.

The Cluster Tables are simply gorgeous, and I’ll have a look around our home and see if I can find a space for them. The Square Magazine Holder is pretty cool, and for someone like me, who buys way too many magazines, well I need to keep them somewhere nice.

I also found a few things for the kids. Two cute Gym bags – the Rose Rabbit Gym Bag for my girl and the Landscape Gym Bag for my boy. I also fell in love with the Rose Rabbit Bedding. I guess it’s not going in our bedroom, my husband would hate it, so I’ll have to convince my daughter that she cannot live without ; )

Next up is my birthday

I’m next on the birthday list in our family. This year I turn 36. I haven’t had time to think that much about it, and in the end it is just a number, right? This year turned out a lot different than I imagined. But luckily, it’s for the good. I haven’t been this happy or felt this good in years. This year, I’ve added a few more personal gifts to my wishlist, things that will not be added to the household, so to speak, but things that I will enjoy wearing or using on an everyday basis. Today, I’ll give you a sneak peak of some of the things which made it to the final list.

During the last year, I’ve been reading books again. And I want to make time for even more reading this fall. High on my list is of course a gift certificate to an online bookshop. In October, I’ll buy the new Kinfolk book, which I wrote about here. I can hardly wait to sit down with a cup of coffee and start reading it. But high on my list is also the book The Monocle Guide to Good Business. It would be amazing to read under the light of the beautiful Reade Table lamp from Menu.

Something I’ve taken up this year, or the end of last year to be precise, is yoga. It’s amazing for me and my body, and I want to get to know even more and learn even more. So comfortable yoga clothes from Sofie Schnoor’s collection also made it to my list this year.

I’ve included af few other things on my list. The necklace Caro by Maria Black, would look great on me this season. The print I do I do I do from One Must Dash would be perfect for our new corner in the dining room. And I want to start redecorating the corner soon. What would make my day (and night) would be to sleep in this bed linen from H&M. Lastly, I need some more beauty products. Purely Professional is such a great match for me (and my daughter), so we need to add a few more products to our collection.

But mostly, I want to be around the people I love and care about on my birthday. Throw a dinner party and just drink some wine and talk all night.


Friday craving from Kinfolk

The kinfolk home

Actually, I don’t have a lot on my Friday craving list this week. I haven’t stumpled upon that much since last week – maybe it’s because I’m still wrapped up in holiday mood. However, I did see some really exciting news. In October I’ll have one item on my craving list: the new Kinfolk book – The Kinfolk Home.

This is what Amazon writes about the book:

The Kinfolk Home takes readers inside 35 homes around the world, from the United States, Scandinavia, Japan, and beyond. Some have constructed modern urban homes from blueprints, while others nurture their home’s long history. What all of these spaces have in common is that they’ve been put together carefully, slowly, and with great intention. Featuring inviting photographs and insightful profiles, interviews, and essays, each home tour is guaranteed to inspire.

Coffee in Gothenburg

I almost feel like it isn’t really summer if I haven’t been to Gothenburg in Sweden. Last week we decided on a day trip this year with both kids. Unfortunately, the ferry had a little accident on Sunday, and we had to change our plans. We were all pretty excited about the trip, but we decided to go during our fall break instead.

I wanted to return to my favourite coffee spot da Matteo with my husband and both kids.

But I also recently discovered another coffee spot, Kafé Magasinet, which I’ve been wanting to explore.

Friday cravings

Friday cravings week 29 It almost feels like autumn here in Denmark. It’s so windy all the time, and we’re not eating outside as much as we had planned. Today, I crave mostly food related stuff like great organic food – preferably in a box from Aarstiderne (Gosh, I really miss our weekly boxes and meal plans). I would love to add Green Kitchen Travels to our collection of cookbooks as well. I plan to make some serious changes in terms of what I eat this autumn. All these lovely and colourful meals would be well served in the Stockholm plate from Ikea. Lastly, I crave this beautiful necklace by Maria Black. It’s my birthday in August, and this beauty is already on my list.
