This is next on the wish-list for the house. Whilst I'm mindful of not buying things for the sake of it and I'm not sure where I'm going to put it I still absolutely want it. Period.

A shiny new little store is now live on my Lovenordic design site. See here.

This Scandi baking cookbook is on my wish list.

Have you seen Ikea's new marble lamps?

Will this article persuade you to get a real Christmas tree? We are in the real camp here :)

LOVE the Echasse vase by Menu in Brass/Smoke; now it comes in Black/Clear. Big tick.

How to have a minimalist Christmas. Sounds perfect to me.

Such festive cuteness from House Doctor. I've been absent (super busy time - of course), but I'll be back with Monday links shortly *just two days late* :))))


Interview with Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen of Norm Architects.

Simple Christmas styling.

Heavenly Sushi Rolls.

These Snow-boots...

Such cute stocking fillers for the mini me's.

This would be perfect in my new kitchen.

I would like this bakery at the end of my street for sure.

Elle Deco UK's take on interiors trends for 2019.


Just look at these stunning interior shots of Jonas Bjerre Poulsen's home on the west coast of Denmark. I posted about this former fisherman's cottage here, but now (although very nice before) there have been some changes and I'll just say *wow*

Who doesn't love a concept store? Well I for one love spending a Saturday morning having a browse in an inspirational space. I have plans of my own for some thing in the future, but I'll elaborate on that another time. So for now here's a list of some of my favourites (some visited and some not - yet). Hopefully there's one near you...

But of course; Sukha, Amsterdam. I'd get my retail fix on the weekend when I lived here.
Rikumo, a beautiful store in Philadelphia selling Japanese bits and pieces.
Myconceptstore, Reykjavik. One of my favourite places on Laugavegur.
This list would be incomplete without Merci Merci, Paris.
The Hambledon. A local(ish) store for me.
El Paracaidista, Madrid - on the list.


Some wonderful mid-century inspiration for you this morning! A very nice apartment located in Milan.

Would you live in a floating city in the sky? Listen here.

I love this French brand. Check out their bedlinen and napkins.

Delicious new arrivals at Cos.

No ordinary apartment by Annabell Kutucu.


I've been working with these products from back in the day when I worked for a Danish furniture store in the UK (Ahem maybe 17 years ago.......) Menu was going strong then and today - well it's an even bigger story. The products are simply stunning, completely modern and was truly one of the favourite brands in my own store (btw now moved on to lovely new owners).

A beautiful piece of solid brass in the form of an oil burner. Yes please.

Just received our first one of these and wow, yes it's stunning.

Curious about where I live? My life on the beach. Here.

NEXT on my wish list; the Stoff Nagel Candle Holder. But the question is Brass or Black?

Intend to book ourselves in here for some R + R.

Cabinet love.

When living in Haarlem (NL), we lived almost opposite this studio. BEAUTIFUL leather goods.

I'm always partial to a cinnamon bun. Tried and tested recipe here :)

I will buy this. I will. I will. I will.


As you regular readers know, I am renovating this big old house (AKA a money pit) and we are getting closer to ordering the kitchen (finally). There are so many options out there, but these guys really stand out for me. They customise Ikea kitchens and yes I hear you saying but it's still an Ikea kitchen inside right? Well not necessarily. Reform CPH are now offering (currently in Denmark only - but hopefully everywhere else soon) wooden drawer interiors, which will make the whole thing look even more beautiful. Win - win for me, now I can really start planning :)

What are your plans today? Felix has gone to nursery in a dinosaur skeleton outfit and I am spending the day working with lots of hot coffee. May hop into town for a quick brunch here. Kind of our second home.....

Dreamy Bedlinen for winter which is around the corner (actually it's already here, it's freezing).

Check out this wonderful apartment in Gothenburg.

Take a look at this home located in Melbourne. This meticulously designed residence is the creation of Annabelle Berryman and Sarah Henry of Studio Four.  The huge windows. The light and airy interiors. The opening to the courtyard allowing nature to be part of the story.  The Scandinavian and Japanese influences are obvious - combined with original features such as cornicing, picture rails and arches. Stunning. This is something special right?  Read more here.

Beautiful stores are such an inspiration. Right? I love to find beautiful little gems in new cities albeit this one is a bit far for a quick visit - Aukland! The website however is wonderful too.

This desk by Rafa Kids has been on my wish-list for some time. Our little one getting to an age where he would love to sit and do his "work" as he calls it which involves him writing pages and pages of undecipherable words and pictures. Yep I think this beautiful piece is still on the wish-list and I'll have to clear some space in the playroom. Again. Is it just me? I feel like I'm forever dropping stuff off at the charity shop...
