Autumn Update for Saxo

Autumn wardrobe update for baby Saxo, via Scandinavian Love Song


Lidt fine efterårssager, der meget gerne måtte finde deres vej ind i Saxo's garderobe - som han alt, alt for hurtigt er vokset ud af. Jeg kunne købe mig fattig i tøj til Saxo og derfor synes jeg tit, det hjælper, at lave de her små collager i Polyvore. På den måde kan jeg danne mig et overblik og sørge for, at tøjet kan mixes og matches på kryds og tværs. H&M Baby Exclusive laver heldigvis også noget rigtig fint (og mere budgetvenligt) babytøj, og ellers er yndlingsmærkerne blandt andre Selana for deres lækre uldprodukter og Caramel for deres søde skjorter og bløde basics. 
A few adorable autumn items that I would love to add to Saxo's wardrobe - which he has outgrown way too fast. I could spend all my money on clothes for Saxo, so I often find it helpful to make collages like this in Polyvore. That way I can get a good overview of the items I love and ensure that they all mix and match. Fortunately, H&M Baby Exclusive also offers some really cute (and more affordable) kidswear, but besides that, my favourite brands are (among others) Selana for there high quality wool items and Caramel for their cute shirts and soft basics.

Som jeg nævnte i mit sidste indlæg, trænger vores soveværelse altså til at blive færdigrindrettet. Det er bare et af de der utallige projekter, der hænger og som det af en eller anden grund er så svært at få afsluttet. Men når man har en baby, kan man jo lige så godt bebrejde ham. I alle tænkelige situationer :) 

Vores soveværelse er også et liiidt underligt rum, da det er en ombygget carport og er derfor meget aflangt. Det har derfor været lidt svært at ryste 'carports-fornemmelsen' af det. Masser af tekstiler har indtil videre været vejen frem, men der mangler bare lige det der ekstra, der kan binde rummet ordentligt sammen. Jeg har derfor bestilt en masse knagerækker ved Artilleriet, der skal hænge i en lang stribe på den ene væg og jeg glæder mig sådan til at få dem op. De er desværre i restordre, så jeg må væbne mig med tålmodighed. Derfor blev jeg også så glad, da jeg så soveværelset her hos Fantastic Frank. For det er præcis det udtryk og den stemning, jeg prøver at fange. 

As I mentioned in my latest post, I really need to finish decorating our bedroom. It is just one of those countless projects that for some reason never seem to get done. However, when you have a baby, you can always blame him, right? :)

The layout of our bedroom is a bit funny though. As it's a rebuild carport, the room is really long and a bit narrow. Therefore, it has been a bit tricky to shake of that unwanted 'carport vibe'. Loads of textiles have until now done the trick, but it stills lacks that little something something that can bind the room properly together. I have ordered a lot of coat racks at Artilleriet, which we're going to hang in a long line at the wall opposite the bed and I'm looking so much forward to seeing the result. The racks are, however, in back order, so I have to guard myself with patience, which is not really my strong side. So I was so happy, when I saw this bedroom at Fantastic Frank. This is exactly how I pictured our own bedroom.

September List

Der er vist ingen tvivl om, at efteråret for alvor er kommet - selvom sommeren aldrig helt synes at være kommet ordentligt i gang? Men i stedet for at gå og mugge over dét, kan man jo lige så godt prøve at omfavne årstiden. Egentlig er jeg ret glad for denne her tid på året - særligt når solen skinner, luften er sprød og der dufter syrligt af nedfalden frugt. Og denne måneds ønskeseddel er da også ret præget af efterårsfarver, særligt farven camel. Ovenviste sengetøj er fra det nye svenske brand, Midnatt. Farven her hedder ganske vist ikke camel, men dromedar, og måtte meget gerne flytte ind i vores soveværelse - som ærlig talt trænger til at blive færdigindrettet.

Autumn is coming, and although summer somehow must have forgotten to drop by Denmark this year, you might as well try to embrace the coming season. I'm actually quite fond of this time of the year - especially, when the sun is shining, the air is crisp and it smells of fallen fruit. And this month's wish list is also very much marked by the autumn colours - the colour camel in particular. The above bedlinen is from the new Swedish brand, Midnatt. The colour is, however, not called camel, but dromedary, but is nevertheless very welcome in our bedroom - which I really need to finish decorating. Soon, soon!

Kokoon. Må nok være mit yndlingsbrand. De får mig gang på gang til at sukke efter silke, og de her bukser (dog den ikke-prikkede version) stod der altså 'Johanne' på, sidst jeg var i Aarhus. Hvem skulle have troet, at et par højtaljede, vidde, brune silkebukser kunne være så fine?


Kokoon. Must be my favourite brand. They always make me lust for silk, and these flared silky pants (although in the non-dot model) had my name on them. Who would have thought that a pair of high waisted, flared, brown silky pants could look so good?

Senere på efteråret slår Hotel Sanders dørene op i København, og der er vist ingen tvivl om, at det kommer til at blive lige så velbesøgt (og veldokumenteret) som Hotel SP34 har været det blandt skandinaviske boligbloggere hidtil. Det er Alexander Kølpin, der er manden bag det nye boutique hotel, og jeg ville da bestemt ikke være ked af at tage en enkelt overnatning her senere på året. Alt virker utroligt gennemtænkt, gennemført og eksklusivt.


Later this autumn, Hotel Sanders will open in Copenhagen, and there is no doubt that this hotel will be just as frequented (and photographed) as the design hotel, SP34, has been among Scandinavian interior bloggers the last couple of years. Alexander Kølpin is the man behind the new luxurious boutique hotel, and I definitely wouldn't mind spending a night or two here later this year. 

The Homes of Two AIAYU partners

Det er efterhånden ved at være længe siden, der har været en 'home tour' her på domænet - men i dag får I dobbelt op. Hurra! Det er jo nok ikke nogen hemmelighed, at jeg har en stor kærlighed til det danske, bæredygtige brand AIAYU. I forrige nummer af RUM Interiør & Design var to af indehavernes hjem vist frem (Maria Høgh Heilmanns hjem øverst og Marie Worsaaes hjem nedenfor), og billederne er så fine og stemningsfyldte, at jeg tænkte, de også lige måtte en tur herind :-) 

På sin vis kunne billederne lige så godt være fra det samme hjem, for det er helt tydeligt at se, at de to dygtige damer er det perfekte match stilmæssigt - og at de begge har en forkærlighed for Cathrine Raben Davidensens smukke litografier og unika-lamper. Samtidig får de også brugt deres egne AIAYU-produkter på smukkeste vis og giver mig øjeblikkelig lyst til at udvide min pudesamling. 

It's been a while, since I've posted a 'home tour'-post here on the domain - but today, you are in for two! Yay! I guess it's no secret that I love the Danish, sustainable brand, AIAYU. In the previous issue of the Danish RUM Interiør & Design, two of the owners' homes were featured (Maria Høgh Heilmann's home above and Marie Worsaae's home below). The pictures are so beautifully styled that I thought they deserved to be posted here as well. 

In some way, the pictures could just as easily have been from the same home, as it is clear that the two talented ladies' sense of interior style match perfectly - and  that they both seem to have the same fondness of the Danish artist Cathrine Raben Davidsen's stunning lithographs and unique table lamps. At the same time, they use their own AIAYU products so beautifully and makes me wanna expand my own pillow collection right away.

Tea and To Dos

Mens Saxo sover morgenlur, prøver jeg lige at få lidt styr på tankerne og dagens gøremål. Det er sjældent, at jeg drikker te. Kaffe er og bliver min 'varme drik', men af og til er der nu noget hyggeligt ved at lave en kande te. Lige for tiden bliver den drukket af yndlingskoppen fra Royal Copenhagen, som passer så fint til tekanden af Quistgaard. På bordet ligger yndlings-elastikken af dygtige Line bag Comfort Objects og mit yndlings-skriveredskab - en blyant, som min far engang har drejet til mig i træ. Dejlig torsdag til jer.

While Saxo is taking his morning nap, I'm trying to get a hold of my thoughts and today's to dos. I rarely drink tea; coffee is and always will be my 'hot beverage'. However, sometimes there is just something cosy about making a pot of tea. Right now, I'm drinking my tea from my favourite Royal Copenhagen cup, which matches my teapot by Quistgaard so nicely. On the table is my favourite hair cloud by talented Line behind Comfort Objects and my favourite writing utensil - a pencil that my dad once turned for me in wood. Have a lovely Thursday.   

Pride

21/08/2017


Godmorgen til jer. Har I mon haft en rar weekend? Her har den stået på lidt baby-fri tid og sjælden tosomhed med min mand. Så dejligt og tiltrængt. Vi spiste hummer-burger og rejemadder på Mefisto i Aarhus og slentrede ellers en tur rundt i Latinerkvarteret hånd i hånd. Kameraet havde jeg ladet blive hjemme, så i stedet får I her til morgen lidt billeder helt tilbage fra slutningen af maj, hvor vi var taget en tur til Skovgaard Museet i Viborg for at se udstillingen Hovmod af den britiske kunstner Rebecca Louise Law. 

Udstillingen var en del af et udstillingssamarbejde mellem en række østjyske museer under overskriften 'De syv dødssynder' i anledning af Europæisk Kulturhovedstad Aarhus 2017. Og nøj, hvor var det dog en smuk udstilling. Så poetisk, fin og tankevækkende. Jeg er så glad for, at vi lige nåede at se den, inden den sluttede.

Saxo havde lige lært at sidde op selv på dét tidspunkt, så da billedet af ham blev taget, stod Mads på spring i kulissen i det tilfælde, at han skulle vælte bagover. Det skete heldigvis ikke :-) Og sikke meget, der er sket med ham siden. Nu sidder han aldrig stille, han er begyndt at 'synge' med på sange (som mest lyder som da-da-da) og hans yndlingslegetøj er et målebånd. Skøre, dejlige dreng :-) 

Good morning everybody. Have you had a nice weekend? We finally managed to have some baby free time and enjoyed a bit of twosomeness. So nice and much needed indeed. We ate lobster burger and shrimp sandwiches at Mefisto in Aarhus and strolled around the Latin Quarter hand in hand. I left the camera back home, so in stead I'll show you some pictures from a trip we took to Skovgaard Museet in Viborg back in the end of May. We went to see the exhibition 'Pride' by the British artist, Rebecca Louise Law.

The exhibition was part of a collaboration between an array of museums in East Jutland with the theme 'the seven deadly sins' on the occasion of Aarhus being European Capital of Culture 2017. It was such a beautiful exhibition. So poetic and thought provoking. I'm so happy that we just managed to see it before it ended.

At that time, Saxo had just learned to sit up. So when the picture was taken, Mads was ready to jump in on the sideline, in case he was tilting. Fortunately, that didn't happen :-) And so much has happened with Saxo since then. Now, he never sits still, he has just begun 'singing' along on songs (which mainly sounds like 'da-da-da', but still) and his favourite toy is a measuring tape. Funny, wonderful child :-)      

Christiane Spangsberg's Motherhood

Vi har nu boet i vores nye rækkehus i snart to måneder, og vi er stort set kommet på plads. Alligevel mangler der lige nogle af de der projekter, som bare har det med at trække i langdrag. Kender I dem? F.eks. at finde nye gardiner til vores køkken/stue/alrum. Da vi flyttede ind, havde de tidligere lejere ladet deres gamle lamelgardiner hænge. Og hvor venligt det end var af dem (og rart, så vi slipper for nysgerrige blikke), så klæder de virkelig ikke rummet særlig godt. Det må vist blive et projekt til efteråret :-)

Men én ting, der er rigtig rart ved vores nye hjem, er, at vores gamle spisebord passede lige ind OG at der var den perfekte væg til vores værk af Christiane Spangsberg - som nogle af jer måske husker fra vores lejlighed i Aalborg. Med titlen Motherhood har værket en ganske særlig betyning for mig, og det er en stor fornøjelse at kunne kigge på det til dagens måltider ved bordet. 
We have now lived in our new terrace house for almost two months, and we are almost settled in. However, we still have a few of those projects in store that always seem to drag out. Are you familiar with those? For instance finding new curtains for our dining/kitchen/livingroom. When we moved in, the previous tenants had been so kind to leave their old lamella curtains behind, which was really nice of them so that we aren't completely exposed to prying eyes. Unfortunately, they don't do anything good for the room, and I'm really keen on finding a good replacement. A great project for the fall I guess :-)  

But one thing that is super great about our new place is that our old dining table fits straight in AND that there was a perfect wall for our work by Christiane Spangsberg - that some of you might remember from our apartment in Aalborg. With the title 'Motherhood' the piece carries a very special meaning to me, and it is such a joy being able to look at it at every meal during the day.

Saxo's Naming Celebration - The Table Setting

God fredag aften alle sammen. Som lovet, kommer der her lidt (okay, mange) billeder af borddækningen til navngivningsfesten. Jeg havde ikke så meget tid til at forevige det hele, inden gæsterne troppede op, så billederne står desværre ikke helt skarpe - men mon ikke I alligevel kan danne jer et indtryk af, hvordan det hele blev :-) 

Servicet var, som tidligere nævnt, lejet gennem A Table Story, som jeg på det varmeste kan anbefale. De smukke tallerkner fra K.H. Würtz klædte maden på smukkeste vis, og sammen med krystalglassene og det både pæne og praktiske bestik fra Cutipol blev borddækningen lige, som jeg havde ønsket mig. Bordene var lidt dumme ift. bordben, så der endte med at blive lidt langt mellem kuverterne, men det var vist også det eneste, der ikke gik helt efter planen. 

Jeg havde selv lavet bordkort og menuer med illustrationerne fra Anja Mulder, og ellers var bordene pyntet meget enkelt med en blanding af pluk-selv blomster og lidt godt-og-blandet fra vores lokale blomster-pusher, bl.a. de blå agapanthus, som også stod i barokhaven. Det eneste 'pynt', vi ellers havde i rummet, var de tre store billeder af Saxo, som Maria Franck tog tilbage i februar.  

Håber, I får en dejlig weekend.     


Happy Friday everybody. As promised, here you have a bunch of pictures of the table setting. Unfortunately, I didn't have that much time to capture the setting before the guests arrived, but I think you can get a pretty good impression of it all anyway :-)

The tableware was as earlier mentioned rented through A Table Story, who I can highly recommend. The stunning plates from K.H. Würtz really made the food look great and together with the crystal glasses and the both pretty and practical cutlery from Cutipol, it all turned out exactly as I hoped for  - maybe even better. The tables were a bit unpractical in terms of the table legs, so the distance between each setting was a bit longer than I wanted - but that was about the only thing that didn't go exactly as planned.

I designed the menus and place cards myself with use of the illustrations made by Anja Mulder. The tables were otherwise very simply decorated with a mix of self-picked flowers and flowers and greens from our local flower pusher, for instance the same blue agapanthus as in the manor house garden. Besides that, the only 'decoration' in the room were the three big pictures of Saxo that Maria Frank took back in February. 

Have a lovely weekend.
