Sneak peek at our new apartment

sneak peek at our new apartment

Some of you might have seen this pic on my Instagram already - but I thought I would share the good news here as well :-) We finally found a new apartment! You might remember from this post that it has been a really exhausting process, and we almost ended up saying yes to an apartment that none of us felt particularly good about. But just before we signed the lease, this apartment turned up, and it felt much much more like us the second we walked in. So come April, we finally know for certain where we are going to move, and that feels really nice :-) The picture is btw from what will become our dining room. 


Nogle af jer har måske allerede set det her billede på min Instagram-profil - men jeg synes da også lige, jeg ville dele de gode nyheder her :-) Vi har nemlig endelig fundet en ny lejlighed! I kan måske huske fra det her indlæg, hvor udmattende processen har været, og vi var faktisk også lige ved at sige ja til en lejlighed, som der egentlig ikke rigtig var nogen af os, der havde en super god fornemmelse omkring. Men lige inden vi underskrev lejekontrakten, dukkede denne her lejlighed op, og med det samme vi trådte ind i den, føltes den bare meget mere som os. Så i starten af april ved vi nu endelig, hvor vi skal flytte hen, og det føles ret rart :-) Billedet er forresten fra vores kommende spisestue. 

Weekly wrap-up x 8

28/02/2016

Hello Sunday and hello dear readers! Time for some weekly inspiration - this time with a bit of a spring vibe, since spring (finally!) is just around the corner now. 
-
God søndag morgen til jer kære læsere. Så er det igen blevet tid til mit ugentlig indspark med inspiration - denne gang med lidt forårsfornemmelser, da foråret jo (endelig!) lurer lige om hjørnet. 


IKEA Livet hemma
What a lovely work space this is - styled by Pella for IKEA. Such an inspirational space to get work done and come up with new ideas, don't you think? 


Sikke en fin arbejdsplads det her er - stylet af Pella for IKEA. At arbejde her må næsten føles som en leg og jeg kan kun forestille mig, at ideerne vil blomstre, tror I ikke?

Daniella Witte
I totally fell for this creative way of keeping snow drops inside - the ultimate harbinger of spring. They look so delicate and illuminating in the otherwise dark living room.
     
Jeg er så betaget af denne her kreative måde at tage vintergækker indenfor på - den ultimative forårsbebuder. De ser så delikate ud og lyser nærmest den mørke stue helt op. 

Mariaemb
I'm ending the post with this perfect Sunday feeling captured in Maria Embertsén's beautiful bedroom. There's really nothing better than drinking coffee and reading magazines in bed all day, is there? Happy Sunday! 

Jeg slutter indlægget med den der perfekte søndags-fornemmelse, her fanget i Maria Embertséns fine soveværelse. Kan vi ikke blive enige om, at der ikke findes noget bedre end at drikke kaffe og læse gode magasiner i sengen hele dagen? Rigtig god søndag til jer.

Nu er der sørme endnu et super-fint hjem til salg i Gøteborg. Denne gang er det den dygtige keramiker Elin Lannsjös fine lejlighed. Jeg er ret vild med det lidt dunkle udtryk i billederne - og så er køkkenet da bare intet mindre end perfekt. Er der noget særligt, I godt kan lide? I finder flere billeder her.

Swedish Johanna Bradford lives in the most beautiful home located in one of my favourite cities, Gothenburg. Needless to say that I could move right in. I love the homey feel and all the small quirky details - there's just so much for the eye to discover. This week, Kristin Lagerqvist behind the blog Krickelin visited Johanna and took a bunch of lovely new pictures of her home. You find more here and here.

Svenske Johanna Bradford bor simpelthen i den fineste lejlighed, som ovenikøbet ligger i en af mine yndlingsbyer, nemlig Gøteborg. Jeg behøver vist ikke at sige, at jeg kunne flytte ind med det samme? Der virker bare enormt hyggeligt og der er så mange små og skæve detaljer for øjet at gå på opdagelse i. Denne uge havde Johanna Kristin Lagerqvist bag bloggen Krickelin på besøg til at tage en række nye billeder af hendes fine hjem. I finder flere lige her og her.

wednesday wish list | vases

Carina Seth Andersson for Marimekko, styled by Lotta Agaton, via http://www.scandinavianlovesong.com/
via Lotta Agaton
This week, Carina Seth Andersson's designs for Marimekko were finally released. I absolutely adore the big one on the left, but unfortunately, it's already sold out on their webshop. Dangit! In general, I love vases - both with and without flowers in them - and I don't think you can ever have enough, can you? So as a consolation, I have found six other vases that I would love to add to my home for this Wednesday's wish list. Well, I actually already have vase nr. 3, but that is also one of my absolute favourites (see it in action here, here and here) - maybe it's because you get to for one's price :D That one and then my pink Alvar Aalto vase :-) Do you have a vase-favourite in your collection?  
-
Fra denne uge kan man endelig købe svenske Carina Seth Anderssons vasedesigns for Marimekko. Jeg ælsker virkelig den store til venstre, men den er sørme allerede udsolgt på deres webshop. Æv altså! Generelt er jeg ret vild med vaser - både med og uden blomster i - og man kan jo egentlig aldrig få nok af dem, kan man? Så for lige at putte et plaster på såret for at være for sent ude med Marimekko-vasen, så har jeg fundet seks andre vældig fine vaser til onsdagens ønskeseddel. Det vil sige, at jeg faktisk allerede har nummer tre, men det er så til gengæld også en af mine absolutte favoritter (se den i brug her, her og her) - måske er det fordi, man får to vaser for én vases pris :D Dén og så min laksefarvede Alvar Aalto vase :-) Har i en vase-favorit i jeres samling?

Scandinavian Love Song on Tumblr

Hi everybody! Hope you are doing well on this lovely Tuesday? And a warm welcome to all new readers, who have found their way here due to my guest post yesterday at Niki's beautiful blog, My Scandinavian Home. And now to something completely else: Tumblr. You know I love pinning, but still, I have been missing a place where I could gather and share my inspiration in form of pictures without all the disturbing text, which sometimes takes up too much space at Pinterest. So as the late bloomer I am, I have made a Tumblr blog and you are welcome to drop by. I'm still quite new to this platform, so if you have any recommendations for profiles to check out, please do share them in the comments field. Now, I guess all I'm lacking is a Facebook profile for the blog as well - but one thing at a time :-)
-
Hej med jer! Håber, I nyder sådan en fin solskinstirsdag, hvor man næsten kan mærke, at foråret er lige om hjørnet. Og så lige en varm velkomst til nye læsere, der har fundet deres vej herind pga. mit gæsteindlæg på Nikis fine blog, My Scandinavian Home, i går. Velkommen til :-) Og nu til noget helt andet, nemlig Tumblr. Dem der har fulgt med længe ved, hvor meget jeg elsker at pinne, men jeg har længe savnet et sted, hvor jeg kunne samle og dele min inspiration i form af billeder uden alt den forstyrrende tekst, der godt kan fylde lige vel meget på Pinterest. Så som den 'late bloomer' jeg nu er, har jeg lavet mig en Tumblr-blog, og I er selvfølgelig meget velkomne til at kigge forbi. Platformen er stadig ret ny for mig, så hvis har nogle anbefalinger af andre Tumblr-profiler at holde øje med, må I meget gerne smide en kommentar. Så nu mangler jeg vist bare at få oprettet en Facebook-side for bloggen - men vi tager lige én ting ad gangen :-)

I don't think it's any secret that I love books in interior styling (just see here, here and here) - pretty books that is. And I think that cookbooks with beautiful covers (and great recipes on the inside of course) in particular are such a great way to add some interesting details to your kitchen. Below, you find some of my favourites. I already have The Kinfolk Table and the NOMA cookbook, but I would love to add the rest to my collection. 
-
Det er vist ikke nogen hemmelighed, at jeg elsker, når man bruger bøger som en del af indretningen (se bare herher og her) - pæne bøger, vel at mærke :-) Og jeg synes især, at kogebøger med pæne omslag (og selvfølgelig gode opskrifter indeni) er noget af det fineste i et køkken. Nedenunder finder i derfor nogle af mine favoritter. To af dem har jeg allerede - The Kinfolk Table og NOMA kogebogen - men jeg ville bestemt ikke have noget imod, at tilføje resten til samlingen.  

Sorces: 1, 2, 3, 4 with thanks

glimpses from my weekend

Happy Monday everybody! After all my complaining in yesterday's post, I thought it was in it's place to show a few positive glimpses from my weekend :-) After the exhausting week, we actually did manage to have lovely weekend and not least to recharge our mental batteries. And thank you so much for your kind and supporting comments on our finding-a-new-apartment situation - they definitely also improved my mood :-)
-
Hej alle sammen og god mandag! Efter al min brok i gårdagens indlæg, tænkte jeg, det måske var på sin plads at vise lidt positive glimt fra min weekend :-) Oven på den hårde uge havde vi faktisk en rigtig rar weekend sammen, og fik ladet de mentale batterier op. Og tusind tak for de søde og støttende kommentarer, jeg fik til vores lejlighedssituation - de hjalp helt bestemt også på humøret :-)

While our neighbours are on holiday in Thailand, I water their fine collection of plants...
... and took the liberty to babysit their new HAY chair in the most stunning burgundy-coloured leather
'Just because' flowers from Mads - the best kind 
Waking up to a bedroom bathed in pink morning light is one of the things I'm going to miss when we move

Happy new week everybody!

weekly wrap-up x 7

21/02/2016

This week has been quite exhausting, to say the least - so I could easily use a weekend more after this one, pretty please! We have been out looking for a new rental apartment, and we have seen so many (crappy) ones that I can't even keep track of them anymore. We ended up finding the perfect one though at the right location, size, price and everything (imagine three rooms en-suite, herringbone floor and a stunning stucco - apartment heaven in other words) and the sweet landlady gave us the impression that it would be ours if we wanted it, because she hadn't been able to find a tenant since May last year. And we did, want it that is. We agreed that we should come and see it again and go over the details, but we drove the hour it takes to get there just to find out that the landlady had given it to someone else, and she hadn't bothered to give us a call. Doh! You can imagine how disappointed we were, because this kind of apartment just doesn't come around that often. 

However, we have actually found another one now that will have to do. It's a lot smaller, but it can work for a period - I guess the other one will just always be 'the one that got away'. Well, well... it's not the end of the world, and I'm sure we will find the home of our dreams one day, and until then - here you have this week's (short) wrap-up with my favourite design news and blog posts from the past week. Happy Sunday!

Det her har virkelig været en ret så udmattende uge for at sige det på en pæn måde - så be om en weekend mere, tak! Vi har været ude og kigge efter en ny lejebolig i Randers alle ugens dagen, og har fået set så mange (crappy) lejligheder, at det efterhånden er svært at holde styr på dem. Men vi endte faktisk med at finde drømmelejligheden - med den helt rigtige beliggenhed, størrelse, pris, ja, det hele (forestil jer lige tre stuer en-suite, sildebensparket og den smukkeste stuk), og den super søde og sympatiske udlejer gav os det indtryk, at den var vores, hvis vi ville have den - for hun havde ikke været i stand til at finde en lejer siden maj sidste år. Og ja tak, det ville vi gerne! Så vi aftalte med hende, at vi skulle komme og se den igen og gennemgå detaljerne. Da vi så havde kørt fra Aalborg til Randers (for 117. gang den uge), viser det sig så, at hun lige har lejet lejligheden ud til nogle andre, og havde altså ikke lige fået ringet til os. Ø.V.! I kan nok forestille jer, hvor skuffede vi blev, for sådan nogle lejligheder hænger ikke lige frem på træerne.

Men altså, det er jo ikke jordens undergang, og vi har faktisk også fundet an anden lejlighed nu. Den er godt nok meget mindre og slet ikke så charmerende, men den kan godt fungere for en tid, og så håber jeg bare, at drømmeboligen dukker op på et tidspunkt :-) Indtil da får I lige søndagens (korte) opsummering af mine yndlings designnyheder og blogindlæg fra den forgangne uge. Rigtig god søndag!

Norrgavel is a Swedish interior brand, and this week I loved the pictures from their spring collection that Hildur Blad from Fixa & Dona shared on her blog. That green colour is divine!

Norrgavel er et svensk møbelbrand, og denne her uge faldt jeg for billederne af deres forårskollektion, som Hildur Blad delte på sin blog Fixa & Dona. Den grønne farve der er så fin!

The pictures from Sandberg Wallpaper's trend report SS16 have also received a lot of attention in the Scandinavian blogosphere this week - beautifully styled by Charlotte Ryding and Emma Fischer With the report, Sandberg wants to help their costumers find their personal interior profile and that way help them make more sustainable and thought-out choices when decorating their homes. They have thus made four profiles: The spiritualist, the gardener, the collector and the explorer. I think I'm a good mix of all of them :D Download the whole report here. Which profile matches you best?
-
Billederne fra Sandberg Wallpapers trendrapport SS16 er blevet delt vidt og bredt i den skandinaviske blogsfære i denne uge - så fint stylet af Charlotte Ryding og Emma Fischer. Med rapporten ønsker Sandberg at hjælpe sine kunder med at finde deres personlige indretningsstil, så de på den måde undgår fejlkøb og vælger mere holdbare løsninger i hjemmet. Sandberg har derfor lavet fire profiler: spiritualisten, gartneren, samleren, og udforskeren. Jeg tror, jeg er sådan en god blanding af det hele :D I finder hele rapporten til download her. Hvilken profil passer bedst på jer?

Som jeg lovede i morges, får I her en samling af mine yndlingsting fra denne fine lejlighed. Har I mon nogle favoritter? Mens jeg lavede collagen, så jeg forresten lige, at Designdelicatessen giver 10% på alle varer hele weekend - man skal bare bruge rabatkoden 'weekend', når man afslutter sin ordre - det er da den bedste undskyldning for at lave lidt weekend-webshopping :-)

This Saturday morning, I'm really loving this apartment styled to perfection by Emma Fisher for Bjurfors in Gothenburg. I love the mix of modern and vintage details, and I think it would be quite easy to find some similar items for your own home - so check in later to find out, how you can get the look :-)

Jeg sidder lige og nyder billederne af denne her lejlighed til min morgenkaffe. Lejligheden er så fint stylet af Emma Fisher for Bjurfors i Gøteborg. Jeg er ret vild med mixet af vintage og moderne detaljer, og jeg tror, man ret nemt vil kunne skabe den samme stemning i sit eget hjem - så kom forbi senere, så laver jeg lige en collage med mine yndlings items fra lejligheden :-)

I have followed @annacate on Instagram for a long time, and I truly adore the pictures she posts of her beautiful home and super-cute kids. So, since last week, when she announced that her home soon would be up for sale at Entrance, I have been looking forward to it like a kid for Christmas Eve. And oh boy, the pictures definitely don't disappoint! What a true gem this is. I love the windows, the vintage furniture, not to mention the beautiful wallpapers from William Morris!
-
Jeg har længe fulgt @annacate's fine profil på Instagram, og jeg elsker virkelig, de billeder hun poster af sit smukke hjem og søde børn. Så lige siden hun i sidste uge fortalte, at hendes hjem snart ville komme til salg hos Entrance, har jeg glædet mig som et lille barn. Og wow, billederne skuffer bestemt ikke! Sikke en lille perle. Jeg er særligt vild med vinduerne, vintage møblerne, for slet ikke at snakke om de smukke tapeter fra William Morris.
