SENTOSA HOUSE

10.4.15

Despite looking for more, I only found one image of this amazing house located on Sentosa Island, Singapore. It's such a stunning place. To have an enclosed courtyard has always been a little dream of mine....

DANISH APARTMENT

2.4.15





I found a minute whilst Felix sleeps to put out a quick post. My intention has been to post more but the time just whizzes past and before I know it another week has gone. I am trying to find the balance between working and being a mom. It's tough, but we will get there. I have learnt to resist the temptation to do a bit of work or squeeze in emails whilst with Felix - it just doesn't work. I have to set time aside for work, whilst he's sleeping or when we have some help around the house. We have been trying nursery this last few weeks, but have stopped it now as he wasn't enjoying it (still too young) and wow the bugs! We have all been sick with various things for three weeks. No thanks, I'll put that off for as long as possible. So right now he is sleeping outside in his pram, enjoying the cold, fresh air. I am sitting with a coffee and my laptop with a moment to myself. We will have a lovely day in the city walking around and grabbing a coffee with daddy. Life really is very good. Have a lovely day too and hopefully I will grace you with another post soon.

Love this apartment which I found over on Femina. I think I may have posted about it before (?!!!??), but hey, it's nice enough to mention again.

DANISH DESIGN STORE

9.10.14

CPH30 COPENHAGUE DESK BY HAY

6.10.14

I'm looking for a new desk and this one is definitely in the running.  The CPH30 Copenhague desk by Hay is just right. Now I need to consider the size, I need something big enough, but not too big. Maybe the CPH10 would be better as it's a bit smaller.

FELIX 21.8.14

1.10.14


I'm guessing you may have gathered something was going on as I've been so absent (and you may have have seen a couple of shots over on my Instagram) Yep we have been busy welcoming our little prince into the world and we couldn't be happier. It was all rather dramatic, we were due to travel from our holiday home in Haarlem (Netherlands) back home to London to have him, but the night before I started getting worried as I felt very little movement. Popped in to the local hospital to get checked over and the next thing we know we are having an emergency c-section. The hospital was totally amazing - in hindsight, it was the best place to have him. He was in the NICU for 9 days as he was 4 weeks early, but now at 6 weeks old, he is a beautiful healthy bundle of love and I seriously cannot get enough of him. The sleep deprivation is worth it! I feel totally calm, complete and ecstatically happy.

THE TIME TRAVEL EXPERIMENT FROM IKEA

20.8.14




Are you ready for something a little different on this blog? 

The fall is a great time to be motivated and inspired with new catalogues, collections and, well, generally new things. This time of year also kickstarts cosy, homely feelings, when we all start to hibernate a little more. The weather starts being a bit more unpredictable and to me when the weather gets cold, rainy and blustery it just makes me feel like an even smaller, more vulnerable person on this huge planet of ours, always at the mercy of our beautiful nature.

This fall, IKEA is launching their new catalogue along side something really amazing - a time travel experiment.  IKEA gave some of their customers the opportunity to experience their future. How? Well, world-renowned hypnotist, Justin Tranz put young couples into a hypnotic trance before presenting them with life-changing every day events in bedrooms and bathrooms, the rooms where the day begins and ends....

The idea is that those big moments that happen in all our lives have a dramatic affect on how we live and how we live has a dramatic affect on how our homes evolve.

Take a look at this video which films Adam and Sofi dealing with various milestones in their daughters life, I think it's absolutely fascinating and so clever.  I'd love to hear what you think.

Some words from Johan Wickmark, catalogue manager at IKEA...“At IKEA, we believe that life happens everyday. That it’s on those seemingly ordinary days the magic happens, when life takes shape and changes, and it’s for those moments we create our products and solutions”

BEDROOM

18.8.14


 I came across this really nice kids bedroom over on Weekday Carnival. I really love the details, like the vintage wardrobe, pink and grey wall and the bare bulb string lights -  love those bed-linens too - in fact it's all rather nice :)

HOUSE DOCTOR A/W 2014

14.8.14







I'm loving these A/W 2014 shots from House Doctor. Whilst they have an A/W feel to them, they still feel fresh and bright. The nude pink and brass get my vote :)

SUMMER

13.8.14

Well the blogosphere is filling up with A/W 14 new collection shots and I must say I aways look forward to this part of the year. But at the same time we have to enjoy these last few weeks of summer and I think these images capture these hazy August days perfectly.
