A fantastic home

Yesterday, a new season of one of my favourite tv shows began. It’s called Danmark’s Skønneste Hjem (The greatest home in Denmark). I fell in love with this home the second I saw it. I’m so glad I found pictures on Bo Bedre‘s website, because now I have even more time to look at all the details. Just sit back and relax and enjoy perfection.

While I wait for my Block table

I (or should I say we) need a table beside our sofa. We’ve been looking through lots and lots of shops in order to find the right one. We decided on the new Block Table from Normann Copenhagen. We’re waiting for the dark grey one, apparently it’s very popular, because we’ve been waiting for two weeks already.

“Designing is an interaction between craftsmanship and industry, and both elements need to come together,” says Simon Legald, who designed the beautiful table. Legald  graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2012.

Small spaces

I’ve found this small space, which is rather interesting. I don’t know about you, but I believe that decorating a smaller space takes much more skills and creativity, than to decorate a larger space. Of course there are difficult aspects of both.

When I’m looking for inspiration for our own flat, I tend to look through my archive of smaller spaces, because they are filled with fantastic solutions. Because when it comes down to it, we all have the same basic needs that we need to make room for in our home. The only difference is the amount of space.

What do you do, when you are looking for inspiration?

This space is special in more than one way. This is the second home of the owner – the city apartment in Copenhagen. If I remember correctly, he lives with his family somewhere outside the city.

Cool Danish Loft

It’s Monday again. But it’s a pretty special week, so it’s not that bad. I’m going out with a great friend of mine, going to meditation and then it’s the beginning of the second round of Blogging Your Way with Holly Becker from Decor8 and Leslie Shewring from A Creative Mint and I’m really looking forward to it this time.  It was so much fun the first time, but I had just started a new job, and I didn’t have as much time to do the projects as I could have hoped for. So now I’m all settled in at work, and I’m up for the challenge once again.

To kick off the week, I’ll show you this cool Danish loft – I hope you like it.

My love for Danish design

I’ve been fascinated by design for as long as I can remember. My childhood neighbour was the boss at a production facility, where they made Georg Jensen products. And from time to time, I got to pick out a gift from their collection. So from a very early age, I got interested in their collections. I remember one time, where I got to pick out my favourite item on a table. There was no doubt in my mind, I picked out a candle holder designed by Arne Jacobsen for the SAS Royal Hotel. When I picked it out, I didn’t know that it was designed by Arne Jacobsen, I just picked it out, because I loved the design. Knowing what I know now, I’m thrilled that I didn’t pick something else, because it is still one of my favourite items in our home.

But to make a long story short, I just came to think of this story, when I saw this home earlier today. The home, I’m about to show you, is packed with many of my design favourites. So I hope you’ll enjoy the tour as much as I did.

New kitchen on a budget

Here’s a pretty cool kitchen I had to share here on the blog. The old kitchen has been replaced with this new and fantastic IKEA kitchen in black and white, with drops of color here and there.

Things I like in the kitchen:

* The Børge Mogensen bench – it’s so lovely

* The white floor

* The Arne Jacobsen things in the kitchen

* The mix of old and new things

* The yellow Vola tap

* The Rancilio coffee grinder (we have one, and I wouldn’t trade it for anyhting)

* The IKEA kitchen (who says you have to pay a million to look a million?)

*The gas stove from Smeg

* The pile of cookbooks – notice Almanak by Claus Meyer (I actually think we’ve got the exact same pile of books)

* The turquoise wall cupboard
