Nu er det vist efterhånden tilladt at begynde at jule en lille smule, og særligt når Artilleriet har lavet sådan en smuk serie billeder, er det svært ikke at komme lidt i julestemning. For hvor er de dog overdådige og stemningsfyldte. Jeg er vild med deres moderne fortolkning af de middelalderlige still-leben eller nature morte, som de også kaldes - den lille kunsthistoriker i mig bliver så glad :) 

I think it's allowed to tune in on the coming season now, and when Artilleriet has made such a stunning series of pictures, it's really hard not to get into the Christmas spirit. The pictures are just so lavish and evocative. I particularly love their modern take on the medieval still-leben, also called nature morte - the tiny art historian in me is so pleased :)

Her får I lige en lille ladning billeder mere fra vores tur til Helenekilde Badehotel. Det var virkelig hyggeligt indrettet og gik så godt i tråd med hotellets historiske detaljer. Store, bløde sofaer, stribede tapeter og tunge gardiner. Og den lampe dér i hallen, måtte godt flytte ind hos mig. For ikke at snakke om stolene.

Here you have another bunch of pictures from our stay at Helenekilde Badehotel. The interior was so cosy and just in line with the hotel's historical details. Huge, comfy couches, striped tapestry and long heavy curtains. And I would just love for that lamp in the hall to come with me home. Not to mention those chairs.

Så er det blevet tid til at dele første ladning billeder fra vores tur til Helenekilde Badehotel. Ja, jeg skriver første, for jeg har lige et par indlæg mere i ærmet. Det var også vores første gang i det Nordsjællandske og nøj, hvor blev vi da forelskede i det område, i særdeleshed Tisvilde Leje, omend det kun var for en meget kort bemærkning. 

Helenekilde var sådan et fint sted, og lige som et badehotel skal være. På ingen måde et prangende sted, men sådan et sted, der giver én en sjælden ro i sjælen. Vi har efterhånden besøgt en del badehoteller, mest i det nordjyske, men Helenekilde vil fra nu af også have en særlig plads i vores hjerter. 

Værelset var spartansk, men noget så hyggeligt og der findes muligvis ikke noget bedre, end at kunne åbne sin altandøren om morgenen og høre det vilde havs brusen. 


The time has come for my first post with pictures from our stay at Helenekilde Badehotel. Yes, I'm writing 'the first', as I have a couple of posts up my sleeve. It was also our first time visiting the northern part of Zealand, but oh, how we fell in love with that area, and Tisvilde Leje in particular despite the fact that our stay was only for a very short period of time. 

Helenekilde was such a nice place and exactly how a beach hotel should be. In no way a showy hotel, but exactly one of those rare places where you can achieve a little peace of mind. We have visited a handful of beach hotels, mainly in Northern Jutland, but Helenekilde will from now on also have a special place in our hearts. 

The room was very modest, but equally cozy and I don't think that anything beats being able to open your balcony door and hear the ocean just outside when you wake up in the morning.

Vi er vel hjemme efter den dejligste tur til Helenekilde Badehotel. Det var så rart, at mærke lidt tosomhed igen og så fint der var. Jeg har taget en masse billeder, som jeg også vil dele her, men mens de bliver færdigredigeret, synes jeg lige, jeg vil dele de her fine billeder, som svenske Artilleriet står bag. Jeg elsker farvesamspillet mellem den gamle bygning, Vrångsholmen, og de smukt kuraterede interiør objekter. Så stemningsfyldte.  

We're back home from our trip to Helenekilde Badehotel, and it was such a nice stay there. We really enjoyed the twosomeness and it was such a pretty place, both the hotel and the surrounding nature. I took a bunch of pictures that I want to share here as well, but while they are being edited, I thought I would share these stunning pictures, styled by Swedish Artilleriet. I'm in love with the colour play between the old building, Vrångsholmen, and the beautifully curated interior objects. So evocative.

November List

November List, via Scandinavian Love Song

Oktober kom og gik før vi fik set os om, og nu skriver kalenderen november og lige straks også december og jul. Hvor blev dét efterår lige af? Her kommer nu alligevel efterårets sidste liste med ønsker og tanker om den kommende måned. 

Ovenviste smørboks har jeg lige hentet i min pakkeshop. Den har stået så længe og hygget sig på min ønskeseddel, men da jeg så, at Line Dahy Ernst havde fået et parti hjem til sin fine webshop, slog jeg til. I den rosa/nude version. Med min store kærlighed til smør, spår jeg os et langt og lykkeligt liv sammen. 

October came and went by before we even knew it, and now the calendar says November, and soon December and Christmas. Can't believe how fast this fall went by. Nevertheless, here's my November list with wishes and thoughts for the month.

I've just collected the butterbox above. It has had my name on it for a long time now, but when I saw that Line Dahy Ernst got some home for her lovely webshop, I couldn't resist clicking one home, in the rose/nude version. With my great love for butter, I'm sure we will live a long and beautiful life together.

Jeg skal kun sove én gang mere, før Mads og jeg tager på vores første kæreste-tur sammen, efter Saxo meldte sin ankomst. Godt nok kun med en enkelt overnatning, men det bliver så rart med lidt tosomhed for en lille stund, omend jeg helt sikkert kommer til at savne Saxo forfærdeligt meget. Sidste år, da jeg var højgravid, var vi jo på Svinkløv Badehotel, blot få dage før det brændte ned. Denne gang går turen til Helenekilde Badehotel i Tisvilde, som jeg dog ikke håber, kommer til at lide samme tragiske skæbne som Svinkløv. Jeg glæder mig til at opleve stedet og stemningen, som jeg kun har hørt så meget godt om. Og ikke mindst til at sove lidt længe, hvis jeg altså kan. 
I only need to sleep one more time, before Mads and I are going on our first couple's trip together after Saxo came into our lives. It's only for a single night though, but still, it's going to be so nice with a bit of twosomeness for just a little while (I'm sure I'm going to miss Saxo terribly). Last year, we visited Svinkløv Badehotel only a few days before it burned down to the ground. This time, we are visiting Helekilde Badehotel in Tisvilde and I cross my fingers that it wont suffer the same cruel fate as Svinkløv. I'm so much looking forward to experiencing the place and maybe, hopefully, to sleep in for the first time in ages.

Med december og første advent lige om hjørnet er jeg også så småt begyndt at overveje, hvordan årets adventskrans skal laves. Jeg var så heldig, at få adventskransen i messing fra ferm LIVING af min søde svigerinde og svoger sidste år. Der er jo ubegrænsede muligheder for at sætte sit eget præg på den og jeg er ret vild med denne her version, som københavnske Blomsterskuret står bag. Vi får se, hvad det ender med :-)
With December and the first Sunday of Advent just around the corner, I'm trying to figure out, how I will make or rather decorate my Advent wreath. Last year, I was so lucky to get the Candle Holder Circle in brass from ferm LIVING from my brother-in-law and his sweet girlfriend. There are endless ways of decorating it, and I'm pretty keen on this version made by Copenhagen-based, Blomsterskuret. We'll see what I end up with :-)

Det er vist ingen hemmelighed, at jeg har en forkærlighed for Japan. Alt fra mad og ikebana til kimonoer og kunsthåndværk kan få mit hjerte til at banke lidt ekstra hurtigt. Så da jeg så billederne her fra den seneste udstilling hos københavnske The Apartment, måtte jeg også straks dele dem her. Udstillingen er kurateret af Terry Ellis, som har en vidunderlig evne til at kombinere japansk Mingei kunsthåndværk med klassisk skandinavisk møbeldesign.  Læs hele beskrivelsen af udstillingen nedenfor. 

It's no secret that I have a profound fondness of Japan. Be it food or ikebana, kimonos or arts and craft - it all makes my heart beat just at little faster. So when I saw these pictures from the latest exhibition at Copenhagen-based The Apartment, I instantly had to share them here as well. The exhibition is curated by Terry Ellis, who has a wonderful ability to combine Japanese Mingei craft with midcentury Scandinavian furniture. Read the full description below.   

Mingei at The Apartment
Japan’s Mingei craft movement had largely faded from fashion when Terry Ellis began collecting in the 1990s. Mingei was a celebration of everyday objects made by unknown craftspeople, which emerged in the 1920s partly in response to the rapid industrialisation of Japan. In recent years, Terry Ellis has spearheaded a craft renaissance in Japan, popularising Mingei, where his signature is mixing mid-century modern furniture and Mingei craft. Curating the exhibition Mingei at The Apartment, Ellis explores the dialogue between the Mingei movement and mid-century design from the west – with a selection of 20th century Japanese ceramics, textiles, sculpture and basketwork alongside furniture by Alvar Aalto, Bruno Mathsson, Charlotte Perriand, Hans Wegner and more, plus work by contemporary artists inspired by the Mingei tradition.

Halloween Pumpkin with Autumn Leaves

Som jeg nævnte forleden stod weekenden blandt andet på lidt græskar-snitteri. Men med en (stor) baby i familien tog de så lige lidt mere end en weekend at få gjort færdige. I går aftes kunne vi så endelig få lys i dem. Det var simpelthen så hyggeligt at lave dem sammen og de pynter sådan ved vores hoveddør.

Jeg fik en del spørgsmål på Instagram om, hvordan jeg havde lavet mit med bladene (Mads har lavet dét med gravstenen og vores husnummer), og det var egentlig super nemt. Jeg tegnede bare omridset af nogle forskellige blade og tegnede lidt detaljer på i frihånd. Og så var det ellers bare at skære omridset ud og lirke overfladen fri. Vi købte for nogle år siden to små hobbyknive med udskiftelige blade, og de er helt perfekte til formålet. Men jeg tror også sagtens, en almindelig hobbykniv kan bruges. Og så har de til slut fået en gang atamon, så de forhåbentlig holder lidt længere.

As I mentioned last Friday, we were planning on carving some Halloween pumpkins during the weekend. However, with a baby (well, actually a toddler I guess) in the family, it took us a couple of attempts to finish the project. But last night, we were finally able to light up and enjoy the result. It was such a nice thing to make together, and they look so great at our front door. 

I got a lot of questions on Instagram on how I made mine with the leaves (Mads made the one with the tombstone and our house number), and it was actually super easy. I just drew the outline of some different leaves on the pumpkin and drew a few details in free hand. Then I cut out the edges and gently coaxed the surface of the pumpkin using a small stanley knife. And then we finished of with some sodium benzoate so that they hopefully will last a bit longer.

Friday Flowers

I får lige lidt blomster og en krøllet dug til at gå på weekend på - og eftersårsferie måske? Mads har været i København hele ugen og vi glæder os sådan til at få ham hjem igen i dag. Her står weekenden ellers på overraskelsesfest, skovtur og græskar-snitteri. Håber, I også får en rigtig rar en af slagsen. 

Here you have some Friday flowers and a wrinkled table cloth to kick off the weekend. Mads has been in Copenhagen the whole week, so we are really looking forward for his return this afternoon. The weekend will for my part entail a surprise party, walks in the forrest and some pumpkin carving. Hope you will have a great one too.
