Roof Top Garden dreams
I’m totally craving some outdoor living right now – and especially my own private roof top garden. We looked at a new flat for rent some weeks ago that really blew me away. The flat was perfect – but too expensive. So right now I’m trying to figure out how to get it anyhow!! – and have already started planning how I will decorate the 3 roof top terraces it comes with… Will keep you posted!
You can find the sources via my Pinterest board Roof Top Garden.
My sweet daughter turns 9 years old very soon. Her biggest wish is a cat and having her ears pierced! She won’t get either just yet! But I’m tempted to get her some of these outfits from MILK Copenhagen which she picked out – and I would happily wear them myself. Their new Spring/Summer collection is online from today and once again they have hit the right casual cool look which we both like. This is not a sponsored post – just think they did a great job! P.S they only ship to Denmark and Sweden for now.
Year of the Snake
We always spend New Years in Asia. And over the years we have come to understand just HOW BIG the Chinese New Year is to a large number of people. And we always keep track of the current animal of the year – and our Chinese signs – I’m a dog! This sunday the Chinese Calender entered the year of the Snake. And the horoscope says: We’re likely to see significant developments in the area of science and technology this year. Research and development are apt to flourish. This is a Water year as well, the element most closely associated with education and research, making 2013 a very special year for scientists and scholars. Snake is a great sign, a positive one, with energy that can help us face all of the challenges ahead of us. Read more here.
I generally like animal prints – used in small doses, and took a small tour to celebrate the year of the snake with some snake print & snake skin favourites. 1. Funky Wedge Trainers, 2. Lovely Printed mini dress by Emma Cook. 3.Mulberry shoulder bag with snake-effect, 4. Silk & Cashmere scarf by Tattoo artist Horiyoshi the Third.
Current Colour Crush
At the moment I’m completely smitten with the colours and details in Julia Rofman’s handwoven beaded bracelets. I’m just learning how to use a bead loom - but not sure I have the patience to add the last finishing touches like tassel ends and silver claps – so I’m also adding Julia’s creations to my wishlist – just in case!
Wearable French Eye candy
Ohhhh these silk scarfs by french design duo Milleneufcentquatrevingtquatre – makes my heart beat a little bit faster. I can totally see myself wearing one of their pieces! So if one of my dear readers or dear Santa wishes to spend 295$ on me – then you can find all their designs here… and I promise to wear it every single day or to frame it! Aren´t they just gorgeous and totally inspiring?
Agates – to hang & to hold
I have a quite a thing for agates ever since I saw Li Edelkoorts trendtalk – Earth Matters last year – they kind of remind you how precious mother Earth is.
#1 Art Works on Paper – exclusive one-off marbeling prints. Handprinted by Pernilles Snedker Hansen, who also makes marbelled wooden floors.
#2 my recent purchase, amathyst necklace from Stone & Honey.
#3 Agate cheese plates from Jayson Home via Creature Comforts.
Also these images of Church windows with agates from Grossmünster in Zurich by Sigmar Polke are worth checking out!
Nordic Knit – Pillow love
Autumn has arrived here in Denmark – and it´s time to spend more time indoors and time to cozy up your home with blankets and candles – and maybe also with these lovely knitted pillows in wool. They are named New Nordic Knit and are designed by Sen-Sen, and can be found in their webshop soon. I immediately spotted these pillows when I looked at photos from the trendzones at Formland this summer. You can catch a glimpse of the trendzones at The Sweet Spot who also is behind the photo above, from the trendzone House of Happiness, created by Eckmann Alive Studio. I love the colours and the materials used. I´m a little slow when it comes to blogging these days – due to busy days at the studio – so please visit Spagat´s Facebook page – where I share bits and pieces on a more regular basis right now.
Yesterday I packed my summer clothes away and dug out my winter and autumn clothes – I´m always looking forward to cover up again with cosy scarves and sweaters – and actually like the crisp autumn weather and all the colours. Right nowd I´m inspired by the styling and styles from Rabens Saloner´s new collection. See their new stylish catalogue here – and get the styles here. ( I´m not going to write anything about how fast this summer has passed – and that I really can´t believe it´s September now!)
Nice to have
Everything is on sale right now – and I´m really not a good sales shopper – I tend to buy things I like when I see them – and used to return from the sales with white shirts – (which I never wear) and scarfes (which I always wear). But lately I´ve started to ask myself if an item is a Nice to Have or a Need to Have which saves me a lot of money and a lot of wrong buys . I just browsed my favorite shop and webshop BA10 – and I found a lot of great stuff that would be Nice to Have…Maybe some of it is a Need to Have for you?
These new litographs by artist Benny Dröscher are now on my wishlist! I love the colours and compositions in this series of 4. You can find them all here at Charlotte Fogh Contemporary - my favorite local gallery of Danish and International contemporary art, based here in Aarhus. And if you are looking for some action in Aarhus this weekend – our street is throwing a big street party - Mejlgade for Mangfoldighed. Have a great weekend!
