This whole trip to Copenhagen was a spontaneous thing to attend Pizzie´s 50th birthday party yesterday. It was a genuine experience, like few others in my life. I have to start by stating I´m no party person, I seldom dance, I´m a bit shy when it comes to conversation with new people, I don´t drink that much and I don´t smoke, either. I enjoy sitting on a couch and find a couple of persons to chit chat with, while drinking bubbles. 😉
A couple of months ago I was the lucky winner of a 2000 DKK voucher from La Factory Provence through a giveaway hosted by my fellow blogger from Denmark, Nanna. I couldn´t believe it when I saw the mail, I hardly ever win anything and besides this was a Danish store, so I immediately thought about the cost of transport, customs and so on. It´s an online store that focuses on industrial and vintage furniture, right up our alley! I sat down with V one evening and we picked what appealed to us most (and what we have most of in this house, too!)- chairs! Surprised? haha! 😉
Marianne was wonderful, she helped me with the shipping, answered all my questions and yesterday I got the second chair, too! Somehow they´d been separated on their way and I didn´t receive them together. So happy with them! Take a look!
Money can´t buy you happiness, that´s a fact. They can´t buy you style, you either got it or you don´t. They can´t even buy you a decent couch, you need a trained eye to pick the right one. 😉 We found the perfect couch on the internet yesterday and now it´s ours! So here I am, bragging about my trained eye! 😉 haha! Take a look!
ViSSEVASSE is run by Dorthe Mathiesen and Karsten Noel, two big names in fashion, scenography and graphics from Denmark. Their posters envision cities og landmarks in a nordic style, simple and alluring, reminiscent of the art deco era. You can purchase these beauties online, or you can try your local interior design store. I know I will!;-)
I just found the perfect couch, too! I need to check with my better half, but I´ll manage to convince him if he doesn´t see things my way! This summer, things will change around here! No more half solutions accepted and a major clean-up is due! For the ones of you following me for a while you know the limited edition PH-lamp is on the top of my list, almost before the telephone invoice (haha) and now I can start saving for my dream couch, too! The Plank sofa is a cooperation between the Norwegian Knudsen/Berg/Hindenes&Myhr and the Danish dk3 and Dinesen. The latter are very famous for their incredible hard wood floors, take a look here. What do you think? I´m so excited I´m out of words!
Lately I´ve been a sucker for jewelry! I ordered some gold plated earrings in a Tallin Gallery, I just had to have them! Saw them in december and had to think the purchase over for a day and when I finally decided to buy them, they were gone! These are just an illustration, the real ones are waiting for me to pick them up at the post office!;-)
I just had to share my favorite jewelry with you! I prefer simple jewels, so the Scandinavian lines appeal to me. I dream of a Ole Lynggaard ring and a matching bracelet, but until that day, these are my most worn pieces. These days I never part with the big ring, I bought it from the very artsy A-gallery in Tallinn and I simply adore it! The green bracelet is from Swedish Sophie by Sophie and it´s so stylish. Besides, I love enamel! The other ring with a purple stone is from Danish Susanne Friis Bjørner and the rough necklace is from Høyer. See anything you like?;-)
