I've been gone for a while now. We are officially moved in, though there are some lingering boxes in the office and a few projects that need to be finished. I am however glad to be back online (it took 2 weeks to have internet connected at this house!!) and excited to catch up with posting as much as possible.
I saw this video last week sometime (whenever CPH fashion week was) and since I love Copenhagen so much and because the fashion world is this beautiful mystery, I wanted to post this as a quick watch.
The wonderful and incredibly talented Annaleena sent us one of her rails recently and I think it was exactly what this blank wall in our kitchen needed to holding towels and brushes.
The chem glass, tin box & brush are from one of my favorites, Betong Gruvan.
As strange as this is to say, and soon after I hung this great new piece, we have decided to move! We're in the process of selling our house but in the meantime we will be in a temporary place for about a year (hopefully less). Crazy right?!
I'm going to miss this place where my son & daughter were born, which we just bought recently and were slowly making it into a place we felt truly at home. However we have bigger dreams right now, dreams that might be taking us in a completely different direction that we need to take steps towards. As vague as that is I will have to wait and see how things unfold myself before I can share more.
Just don't worry, I will keep updating my IG with news and you can look forward to seeing our new (very temporary) little place in the meantime.
Happy almost weekend!
Autumn is probably my favorite season, for the weather but especially for the clothes. Boots, long sweaters and jeans are my ideal things to wear but obviously all wrong for hot Summers so it's always quite a relief when Fall comes.
A few things I'm currently wanting for the coming months are these Cheap Monday ankle boots | New Balance 620 black sneakers | Pleat front culottes (I already own these in black!) | Zara grey flowy parka | COS blazer dress | Monki green leopard print bag | Byredo La Tulipe parfum | black marbled earrings from my shop (I made an extra pair for myself!) | not pictured is The Cotton Lawn black button up from Everlane, I need two of these
A few things I liked this week/wanted to share include these beetle bar stools from Gubi.
Sleek twisted loop hairstyle from Céline F/W show.
COS new A/W 14 magazine is out and looks amazing, bring on Fall!
Beautiful, geometric Shapes mirrors by Sylvain Willenz.
Dark details from blog, Gingerbreadhouse.
I added some ready-made marble dome rings to my shop. Get them in black/white or nude pink/white here.
A perfect bedroom with big, bright windows.
Over the years my blog has had a few design/layout changes, I'm sure you've noticed. I've also had many people email me about my layouts, wanting to know how they were designed and who helped me? I'm so grateful to say Ana Degenaar has been my go-to for all of my design and coding needs. She's always been my right hand when I've needed help with a widget or need to change/add a function on the blog. I'm telling you, I could sing her praises all day!
I value her relationship so much because not only has her help saved me when I was in over my head (many times) but she's been a genuine friend who's truly talented! Being able to come up with a design and having someone to implement it has been extremely helpful in creating a space that represents me, and I could not do it without Ana's help!
For my fellow bloggers out there I want to share with you this great resource, her shop! Ana has these simple, elegantly modern layouts that are all so good, it's hard to choose only 1. Her blog as well is proof that she's the real deal.
Blogmilk shop makes it easy to choose & download your layout and for those of us who are coding illiterate, this really makes it easy to have something beautifully designed that can be personalized to you. Plus if you find that you still want something slightly off the grid, she does custom work as well.
If you were in Milan earlier this year you may have been to Mindcraft14, a design exhibition composed of works by Danish artists and craftspeople, all curated by Nina Tolstrup of StudioMama.
Above are images from Tools, by Jakob Jørgensen, a fraction of the interesting presentations from the exhibit.
The upcoming collection from Ferm Living is warm, dark, moody and sophisticated. Basically it's fantastic! They've introduced more textiles including rugs and lots of beautiful new candlestick holders and ceramic dinnerware for soft, quiet moments and lots of coziness.
To quote from their description of this collection, "Small moments are said to make life big."
Nude pink, fig tree, iron and brass with worn wooden floors are the sophisticated elements that compose Yvonne's brand new flagship store in Copenhagen. I can personally attest to the quality and beauty of her bags as I own a travel sized version of her design and it is an heirloom piece that I've already used multiple times. Now her store is the perfect display for her goods, with romantic colors and deep hues and a pink that's similar to one I've been working with already, so I'm definitely a fan.
The space was designed by Studio Oliver Gustav, read & see more about it (including 'before' shots) here and if you're in Copenhagen, won't you see it in person for me?
A few things I find inspiring right now.
Firstly are these new wool pillows from Danish artist and ceramicist Gry Fager. I like the pattern of pieces in all white wool that composes each cushion, I think one of each would be just great.
Some really inspiring wooden kitchen details from Raya Todorova.
More images from Annaleena's fantastic place, photographed by Kristofer Johnsson.
A dark, dramatic room of charcoal greys and deep blue from Romain Ricard.
Casual, beautiful fashion inspiration from here-though I searched for over an hour to find the original source for whoever took this photo with no luck. If anyone knows the name of the creator, please let me know as they deserve proper credit for this image.
Deep blue beauty from Prada. This blue is everything right now!
Dramatic still life with excellent light and oil painting-like colors from Tine K Home.
