Am I a camper?

Until I saw what a camping site also can be at this absolutely gorgeous designed camping place  near San Fransisco, not ten wild horses could drag me to a camping site. Yes I am perhaps a bit of a luxury girl when it comes to accommodation, facilities in bath and toilet etc when on a holiday, but I love being in the nature, having a camp fire and having a barbeque, just not living in it. Until now! I would absolute love to go and experience this fantastic site and believe I could actually enjoy the life of a camper. is the name and is situated north of San Fransisco. The complex includes 24 luxury Airstream trailers, 10 fully equipped luxury tents, and a communal lounge pavilion that takes its design cues from mid-century modern architecture. Dan Weber architects designed the lounge pavillion while Lauren Geremia is responsible for all interior design. I totally love it and must go, what do you think…

Holiday away..

I was trying to plan a family trip and was searching the web for “places to go”. I came across this fantastic apartment in Mallorca and absolutely fell in love! It is rustic, genuine, authentic and just has the right vibe. Anyway, as I was scrolling through the lovely photos it became totally obvious that this home belongs to one of my favorite interior design brands Tine K and her husband… WHAT! And now here is the opportunity to rent their apartment, what´s not to like. Even the pricing for a week is to overcome for a family of 5….flight tickets cheap with Norwegian Airlines so offcourse this is where my next vacay is going. Have a look and hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I did.

I have a thing for the Marrakech living, not that I at all practice the look full on in my work or in my own home, but I like to mix the foreign mystery with the modern northern lifestyle. I believe it gives some warmth to the interior spaces and a more personal and individual look to any indoor or outdoor living area. Anyway the fascination of the Riad is endless. I have found some goodies from around the world that I would love to visit. What do you think…

Ikea has done it again! They just came out with a new collection “Svartan” which is a co-lab with the Swedish designer Martin Bergström. He is inspired by the indian culture, which is really colorful yet faded, and decided to make a collection only in black, white and grey colors. I love it and the fact that it is so cool and affordable for anyone is even better.

Apartment living could be cool if this was the place: A loft in NYC’s Greenwich Village redone by RAAD Studio, a design practice situated in New York.

The boat house…………….

Boat houses were and still are used to store boats and fishing gear in Norway, but today they are more common for recreational summer use. This old boat house was in really bad shape and ready to get pulled down. The architect firm TYIN tegnestue designed this fantastic new boat house reusing a lot of the old material in different shapes and places. It is clean and simple and only the necessary things are here for a relaxing and recreational holiday, weekend or day of……………….Cool stuff!

I really love the work of the photographer  Pasi Aalto who has been posted here on my blog before. He captures the feeling and atmosphere so well in his work.

Sweets for my sweet………………


Helloooooo, I want to live in this lolly land! This boutique is amazingly well done and really speaks to my sweet tooth. When entering a wonderland like this I want to stay forever and just indulge in pastry and cakes. I love it and do not even care to think about weight issues here!

The boutique Cioccolato is a pastry boutique specialized in custom deserts for special events and is situated in Monterrey, Mexico. Just saying the word Cioccolato makes my mouth water. The design team behind this playful and mindblowing project is SAVVY Studio who is a multi-disciplinary studio dedicated to develop brand experiences that generate emotional links between clients and their audience. I believe they have indeed succeeded on this project……….Yummy
