We Do like wood we do...

As the daughter of a carpenter I value the finished product resulting from excellent craftsmanship.

"We Do Wood", is a fine example of innovative design made to last...

The  Danish brand We Do Wood was founded by Danish designers Henrik Thygesen and Sebastian Jørgensen in 2006 & they now make desks, chairs, tables and much more out of bamboo.

Shades of grey

Summer has finally arrived here in London and you might expect me to get out the beautiful summery images! But the truth is that even on a beautiful sunny day like today nothing inspires me more than the mysterious and very cool shades of grey...
  Grey is amazing for creating new layers, structure and depth...

Gorgeous bathrooms

"Bad" means bath in most if not all of the Scandinavian languages! Don't you just love these cups with typography by Arne Jacobsen?

Everyone loves a gorgeous bathroom so I've dug out a few of my current favorites to share with you...

I fancy a book bag.

 Louise Roe the brilliant Danish designer behind one of our best selling cushions, "The Book cushion" also designs clothes and accessories. I'm in love with her photo print, "Book Bag" but  seeing that I'm already carrying half of my possessions around with me, its generous size may just prove too tempting for me! What do you think? Can a bag ever be too large?... -->

Kind By Nature

Kind By Nature is the name behind a very special Danish web shop. In this shop things are made by hand and with kindness & love, which surely has to be a good thing! So with that in mind I went shopping and had a fantastic time.

You will find my favourites below

I'm a long time admirer of the edgy Batgirl but found that the competition was  fierce and she was soon joined by a gang of seriously cool contenders!
