Danish Design Store is having their annual fall sale starting from today. There are huge discounts and free shipping, so if you are looking for a beautiful Danish piece (maybe something that you've been hankering after for some time), it's worth taking a look.
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.

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.
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”
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.
So we have 1 month left (to the day) until our baby is due to be welcomed into this world. I am so excited to meet this little one, to see his/her little face, to hold him/her, to, well just be a mamma. In celebration of our new addition, I wanted to host a really nice giveaway for a month, offering a few beautiful baby pieces from my shop Story North.
All you need to do to enter is like Story North on Facebook and leave a comment here under this post.
This is open to everyone. Good luck!
Included in this Giveaway are: Mini Cross Blanket by Pia Wallen | Raven Hanger by Ingibjorg Hanna | Parent and Child Birds by Architect Made | Baby Hedgehog Bed Linen by Bynord

I know Berlin is full of hip, cool stores (must make a trip there soon) and this one is no exception. Simon&me is a very nice store located right in the beautiful Bergmannkiez area of Berlin. It carries it's own label but also other curated finds that they have come across over the years.

I love this place and it's perfect relaxed, minimal finish. Just perfect in my eyes :)
Sorry for the lack of posts. I'm finding this last trimester of my pregnancy a bit difficult (compared to the the first two which were a breeze), namely because I cannot walk right now (hip is SO painful). Also we had a scare and I spent a few days in hospital, they thought I was going into premature labour, but luckily that wasn't the case, so I'm back home, happy and releived. This baby needs to stay put for a few more weeks! I'm still loving this pregnancy despite the hurdles, it truly is the most amazing thing I've ever experienced and I am in awe of what my body is doing.
Miffy Lamp over on Skandivis blog on a post talking about her new Miniwilla posters (very cute). Miffy is one of my favourite characters in my store (and there are many characters). My yet-to-be-born baby already has one :) Oh and just wanted to mention, there's a little summer sale happening in my shop right now :)
I'm in love with this beautiful fresh styling, so simple and so summery. Just right for these lovely warm summer days. So you may have noticed a slight blog makeover? It was about time, I've been meaning to improve things for a while. I hope you like :)
