Typography for Christmas please

Our greatest success this Christmas has so far been the oh so cool and beautiful typography from Design Letters. We all know that Arne Jacobsen was an outstanding Danish architect, but it may be a bit of a surprise to learn that he was such a talented typographer too... 


You will find a large range of Design Letters is my shop

Movember moustaches

Let's face it a guy with with a moustache is a brave man, and kind of irresistible too don't you think?  

I came across these in the Danish web shop 50% of the profit from sales goes to the charity.

Cosy In Sheepskin

I've been obsessing about sheepskin for what seems like ages now!  What I really crave is the soft long haired Gotland sheepskins, which sadly seem to be in very short supply in Scandinavia as well as here in the UK.  So imagine my excitement when I came across  Little White Hall Farm and their wonderful Gotland sheepskins. 

I'm happy to report that I'm now on the waiting list for one of their sheepskins.... Can't wait ...  but guess I'll have to!

Design pit stop - Iceland

How gorgeous is  "Stöðin",  a combined restaurant, drive-through, convenience store and gas station! With inspiration taken from an American diner fused with the traditional Icelandic building technique this really is one special building! I love the contrast between the untreated concrete and the playful colours used inside. And with a view of the fjord to die for this place is sure to stop commuters in their tracks!

 Designed by KRADS architects

A home created by an artist

This is the imaginative home of artist 
Sussi Trampedach and her husband Gorm Bülow. The couple have  together transformed this 4th floor Copenhagen apartment into a space dominated by art and interesting details. I especially love the moody grey colours used in the kitchen and bathroom.

The birds are due to land any day  now let's hope that they'll be well received here in the UK too...

Playtype posters beautifully styled!

I had been swooning over Playtype posters for a while, but it was only after seeing these beautifully styled room shots that I finally decided to stock the posters from the Copenhagen based type foundry.

A cool Danish summer house

I am very fortunate and have stayed in loads of lovely Danish summer houses over the years, each with their own  charming quirks.  But never have I been blessed enough to stay in a house like this, which manages to capture the essence of a traditional summer house whilst at the same time giving it a contemporary and cool edge.


Love that they have kept the traditional stained wood on the outside whilst keeping the pine planks raw on the inside of the house.

Check out the "hanging" balcony
