Home of an architect

Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen from NORM Architects renovated this old house for him and his family a few years back. It is located in Vedbæk just outside Copenhagen. Bjerre-Poulsen wanted to create a lot of open space and let the light in, but also to keep the design clean and simple, so that there's a certain calmness at home.

Danish ceramics

I spent this week in Copenhagen, wandering the streets, visiting parks, castles, shops and restaurants. What a wonderful city it is! While there, it was impossible to miss all these beautiful ceramics which could be found in many shops, but also in restaurants. My favorites were Ditte Fischer and Uh La La Ceramics, of which the first mentioned is more widely known.

A home in Copenhagen

I have a feeling that most of the beautiful homes are located in Copenhagen... Like this one. There's just something about Danish design.

Iittala Vitriini

I've been admiring the Vitriini cabinets by Iittala ever since they first came out. Now I got one as a birthday present, and it makes me so happy!

"Anu Penttinen has designed a true mix and match collection of glass, wood and aluminium pieces. Given the Finnish name “Vitriini” for glass display cabinets, exhibit your mood, personality or whatever else your heart desires. They are the perfect playthings to create a system that is your own."

The home of an illustrator

This is the home where illustrator Vesa Sammalisto, his wife Riikka and their daughter live. They were looking for an apartment in Helsinki three years ago, but it proved to be difficult to find one that would meet their criteria. When this one came up, they immediately snapped it up. They have renovated it completely and decorated with care. Love it!

Concrete floors and grey tones

Coby and Roelof Boermas bought this 19th century Dutch house (and farm) in 2007, when it had been uninhabited for five years. They made a complete renovation, starting with the concrete floors, and after that the rest found its place piece by piece. White, different tones of grey, raw wood - what a match!

Hiroshima by Naoto Fukasawa

I just adore furniture designed by Naoto Fukasawa. This is the Hiroshima series created for Maruni Wood Industries. The wood looks perfect!
