Get in the Nordic mood

Looking at these photos from the beautifully styled  By Nord catalogue makes me feel happy! Yes autumn is here, but  put on a cosy sweater,  light a fire and all is still well with the world!

An architect's dream home


This beautiful house is the home of Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen one of the founders of the talented  Norm Architects in Copenhagen.The result is a very successful  renovation project and now fabulous family home.

There's  lots and lots to swoon over in this home but I'm particularly taken by the polished concrete flooring that flows so easily through-out the house.

A gorgeous shop in Shoreditch

Yesterday a bunch of us were treated to the  Decode Tour of Shoreditch design triangle, and what an inspiring tour it turned out to be! The tour was led by the lovely Daniel Nelson  who took us to some very unique shops and workshops, amongst them  the  Tord Boontje Shop where I was totally seduced by the working environment and the absolute stunning lighting.....

From the Love of milk comes...




Anders Drage's Mountain Milk bottle!
Anders studied graphic design and was asked, as a final exam project to design the packaging of something he loved that could be sold as an international product.

He loves Norwegian milk and went on to design a milk bottle with a similar status to that of a high end  water bottle. 

Don't you just love it?

Old meets new in a Stockholm apartment...


I've fallen for this cool Stockholm apartment with its mixture of old and new furniture, the raw concrete, black flooring, industrial lamps,which all together give it a very individual and industrial look!


Especially loving...
                                                                                                                     
The raw industrial look of the kitchen





loving the black floor & the mix of chairs



















The concrete walls...



The mix of old and new!

Make it a cool splash

I'm not complaining but as it's very hot here in London today  I  wouldn't mind a quick dip somewhere really nice...  

When I came across this image from the striking Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art in Oslo it got me dreaming of 


 cool architecture and refreshing cool water....
