Wishing you a merry Christmas

I´m wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year. We are ready now to go to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi Island and Koh Lipe in Thailand - and will be back in the new year after a long and warm holiday full of rest and new inspiration. Take care and take it easy.

Advent decoration by Ferm

I just discovered this beautiful advent decoration in Alt for Damerne, created by Trine from Ferm Living, who is also the women behind the wallpaper in the background. It´s a branch decorated with misteltoe and some homemade birds, made from this pattern, by Spoolsewing. So pretty.

A little more Christmas

so here´s a glimpse of some of our decorations at home. As you can tell I just love snowflakes so off course I have to mention this snowflake design project by one of my favorite designers Marian Bantjes. We are busy packing - but I´ll be back tomorrow to say Goodbye and Happy Holidays.

Handmade Holiday decorations

I´m todays guest at Bloesem - where I´ve written a small post and how-to guide about my handmade holiday decorations this year. I was inspired by some capice shells I had bought in Asia – but I think you can get hold of them almost everywhere – and I tried to transfer some of my photos and prints onto them – and really liked the combination of the delicate shell and the graphic prints. You can read more here.

Simple & delicate ways to decorate

I´ve finished decorating our house for Christmas now - keeping it simple with lots of candles, snowflakes and cones - and I hope I´ll get a chance to take some photos soon. In the meantime I´ll just share these 2 wonderful ways to decorate your table, from Boligliv - and your white walls - source unknown. I´m thinking of doing something similar with our wall in the dinning room - since our painting will be part of this exhibition at Vejle Kunstmuseum untill April 09.

New owls in my shop

I´ve just uploaded some new owls in my shop, there´s a Science owl, a Hippie owl, a Girly owl, and a Craft Room Owl which I would like you to meet. It´s not easy to take good photos with natural lightning at this time of year - but I did the best I could.

Our Christmas market this weekend went really well - we had about 400 guest in our little studio and we will do it again next year I think - you can get a glimpse of the market at our new studio blog.

By Nord

This home above caught my eye in the november issue of Bo Bedre - because I really liked the scandinavian simplicity and the arrangment with the quince. When I read the article I discovered that this home belongs to one of my former co-workers a long time ago - and that she and a friend have started a new danish company named By Nord . They design and produce timeless home accessories of high quality and the bedlinen above is part of their first collection - needless to say I´m in love with the Squirrel print -arent you? Check out their collection here and see more photos from her home here.

December is lovely

Here´s a glimpse of my little christmas decorations in the studio. The Snowman is by Medusa and the collage is by me and from the Chrismas Cards I´ll be selling this weekend at our Christmas Market here in Århus. The rest will be for sale in my shop after the weekend.

Hand drawn furniture

My heart literally skipped a beat when I first saw this "hand drawn" carpet by the Swedish design group Front, made for an exhibition earlier this year at Spazio Rossanna Orlandi, photo nr.2.

But the price was way out of my reach - so I was so happy when I saw these "hand drawn" pillows yesterday from the new home collection by H&M - which will be launching soon and be online in february 2009. I think they will be more affordable and are now on my wishlist... I wonder if Front designed them?
You can see more from the new collection on Husmusen, or here.

I like contrast

I like this mix of the GUBI-Chairs and the old table - and all the contrast in colours and shapes in both photos - both from the new issue of Rum magazine.
