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…

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…

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!

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

2013 is a fantastic number! I can feel the new energy, the batteries have been recharged, motivation is back on track and ready for kick off!!! Today I am preparing for a fantastic project that includes outdoor design and wanted to share these fab pictures with my readers who are so lucky that spring is on and summer is something just around the corner. I came around the fantastic three: Guard Tillman Pollock Achitects. The 3 started in 2002 and  specialize in the development of elegant, functional and modernist design. I love the outdoor meets indoor, the clean look of their mind set and they have inspired me many times………Hope to inspire you on your garden preparation in the minimalistic way

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………….

Don´t throw stones when living in……………

In Hollywood Hills, California this over the top (off course) fantastic house has the best view ever! Focus here was definitely being able to enjoy the magical nature and the overview of the city. The brilliant architects from  XTEN Architecture created this amazing space where glass was the primary wall enclosure material. A total of 44 floor to ceiling sliding glass panels can disappear into hidden pockets or slide beyond the building……………….Just imagine the absolutely luxury feel there is in this house and the fact that you never have to feel locked inside! So cool and well done……..
