Some eye candy from Copenhagen...

I was thinking about the next place that I move to....It seems that in England 
it is just so important to aim for  a 'proper house' no matter how small or 
uncharacterful it is....as long as it is a 'house'.  I do not fall into this category
 and to be honest, I think will probably move into a couple more apartments
 before I even contemplate a house - if ever!   I came across this very cute 
apartment this morning, its a really great mix of old and new.  Its was built 
in 1920 in Copenhagen by Jewish architects and is now home to a couple 
with their three children....

Just how sweet are these nursery photos?

Here are some great shots of some nursery and children's rooms 
that I'm totally inspired by - when the time comes(!)  I love 
designing these rooms, they are my favourite room to work 
with....my friend Lone in Denmark did such an amazing job 
with her baby Embla's room....don't you agree?

Some drool worthy shots from FriedaMaria

I have been having just the best time, cosy in my apartment this 
beautiful grey afternoon trying to pick which drool worthy shots
 to post from design duo, FriedaMaria's (Frieda Mellema and 
Margo Maria) portfolio - I can tell you it was very hard to choose
 and I'm sure you can see why....

Light up your weekend...

Of course if it is sunny where you are then you will enjoy these also, 
but it is raining here...which I kind of like...

The Bestlite, designed by Robert Dudley Best and now manufactured
 by Danish company GUBI is one of the most beautiful, iconic lights 
that I have ever seen and has been in production since the 1930's.  Best
 and Lloyd (the lighting empire) were famed suppliers to the likes of the
 Titanic and Orient express - which is kind of romantic and makes me 
love it even more!

Peter Krasilnikoff has produced some amazing work shooting the Bestlite
 in its many forms - oh and the rest of his portfolio is great too....enjoy...
