Easter eggs in monochrome

I've fallen in love with these edgy monochrome Easter eggs! And as it's a Danish tradition to paint eggs on Easter Sunday I now feel sufficiently inspired and brave to break away from the traditional Easter colours and  have a go at creating some fresh and contemporary looking eggs for myself. The eggs have been decorated by the Swedish blogger Anna-Malin for the Swedish Magazine: "Skona Hem".

Skandivis goes off piste

Being married to a South African guy I'm a regular visitor to  Cape Town and have long been impressed and inspired by the creativity of the place. So to me, it is no surprise that Cape Town is the designated  Design Capital for 2014, as the place is absolutely buzzing!

As Skandivis is all about living the Scandinavian way,I'm never more excited than when I find Scandinavian influences in unusual places. My latest find is the creative hub the Woodstock Exchange located in Cape Town.  Apart from housing my favorite  Scandi/African brand: Pedersen & Lennard, it's also home to some of the most amazing cafes and workshops in Cape Town right now!



The design partnership Pedersen & Lennard  sells  hand-made as well as  machine-made products that have all been put together in their Cape Town  workshop. Their range is influenced by their fascination with South African craft and the clean aesthetic of their Scandinavian forefathers. Below are some of my favorite products from their current collection.

Below the totally amazing restaurant Superette where I've spent hours people watching and taking in the super cool environment!




I'm planning to  be back at the same time next year to see what's in store during Cape Town Design Capital 2014, can't wait!

Wood lovely wood...

I'll never get tired of wood and I love how it's used in so many ways to create some gorgeous design! The maple wood knife from The Federal is a beauty and the way wood is used in its design is totally new to me!
