My daughter Kerstin just turned 2 years old, can’t believe that she already got this old. Today she doesn’t really have her own room, I’ve fixed a corner to here in the hallway for now. But I’m started to think of how I could transform the guestroom to hers. The guestroom, like most of our house is white, something I slowly want to change into color. I’ve been looking for a wallpaper, that fits with our house from 1920, a bit romantic, yet not too girly. And then I found it…I’ve seen the bedlinen from Garbo & Friends, and I just loved their graphics and their new addition to their collection is a wallpaper!
I just love the combination of flowers with hammer sharks! Would like to combine a dark base with some fresh colors and graphical elements. Couldn’t help myself to create a mood board for Kestin’s room!

This weekend I visited the amazingly beautiful showroom the Apartment. It is, as the name suggests, located in an apartment in the area called Christianshavn, just next to the canal. It’s my favourite area in Copenhagen, and not far from where I used to live! The area was originally built by dutch immigrants and you can clearly see the dutch influences in the architecture.
I have visited the Apartment a few times over the years and it is always really inspiring! This time they had an exhibition called Mingei with Japanese craft objects, curated by Terry Ellis.
The Japanese ceramics and textiles are displayed in a lovely mix with vintage Scandinavian and contemporary pieces.
I really love the mix of colors, patterns and textures.
And the mix of different ethnical patterns from different times. Here a vintage Swedish rug from the early 1920’s together with a chair with African textile! Wonderful!
Sorry for the poor quality of the photos… they are taken with my phone.
My dog Kakan was not too happy about the exhibition…
These lamps from Anna Karlin are just true love. The material combinations and shapes are very inspiring. Art including well-needed light this time of the year! Love the mood and colors in the pictures.
This organic shape is really here to stay, we will definitely see more of soft, volume shapes in product and interior, also clothing!
I found them through the blog, AMM blog, a blog I will look in too much more!
Autumn, I love the autumn. I love the fact that I can dress in cozy knitwear, and stay inside, lit candles and cook for long dinners with friends. Feel like our bedroom would need a few autumn colors. I found these bed linen Midnatt via Hanna Wessman. I might just have to get them!Lamp TR Bulb, Menu. Wilted Duvet, Midnatt.

I think it is amazing to see how artists and designers are inspiring each other over different sectors. And how much more interesting the result becomes when we do cross-collaborations outside the industry that we’re in. Let’s do more of that! See the lovely collection from COS in collaboration with Muller van Severen
