In this spectacular new museum you get it all. It is worth a visit and then some. The famous and genius architects BIG Group transformed an old dry dock into a spectacular museum. The museum has existed for 98 years and was located on the Castle Kronborg in Elsinore, Denmark. On October 5th it was reborn in every aspect. Not only has the Maritime Museum of Denmark moved to this new fantastic location, but the actual story they tell in the exhibition is exciting. They display the items in an interesting way, you are allowed to touch and feel and see. Many games are situated around the Museum and you can even tattoo yourself with authentic tattoos from old times. Even kids love this place!

New York Times just rated the Museum as a must see place in the world, and they just won the Archdaily award: “Building of the year”

Go and visit if you ever go to Denmark, you will not be disapointed!

Who not………….

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.



Kids only……………

Lately I have been working in the kids world and offcourse I want to share these nice images to help you get some cool inspiration for the kids room. Spring is just around the corner and this means release from all the design companies with their new spring/summer 2013 collections.

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

To the man who has it all………………..

Today I was enriched with three totally new (to me) web stores that just hit my mood of shopping today. All 3 shops have great items for the home but actually most important they have really really cool gift ideas for the man you never know what to get, either cause he has it all or because he never can give you a straight answer what he wishes for x-mas, birthdays etc. Well I got inspired and just want to say: “from me to you………….” The Curiousity Shoppe The Curiousity Shoppe The Curiousity Shoppe The Curiousity Shoppe The Curiousity Shoppe Toast The Curiousity Shoppe The Curiousity Shoppe The Curiousity Shoppe


Go check them out they have so many cool and different items on their lists, happy shopping

Rustic in the french Alps……………….

Oh my god! When I first saw this It looked like some old forgotten barn, but looking closer this is so cool and thought through that I want to live here! Well during Christmas break anyway…….. I love the work that interior designer Lionel Jadot has done here. The mix of the old meets new meeting vintage is unreal. The fireplace invites you to sit down and enjoy your vin chaud while the kids are playing around in this huge living area/family room. The kitchen is so unexpected, fun but cool that I really got inspired. So lets sit back and enjoy the peace and quit in this joint……ps can see all my new x-mas decor hanging here………….
