In Copenhagen the spring is finally starting. The cherry blossoms will be all over Bispebjergkirkegård (north-west Copenhagen area) in a few hours/days (follow this # on Instagram and you will see #bispebjergkirkegård).

“When in Rome…” make a party. Festive candles … my Emma turns 11 years in May – and the party will be full of colors & glam – sunny, outside I hope ; )
No party without bubbles ; ) pink to-go – I like ♥
… cannot get enough of … trays … DON’T KNOW WHY?
I have 20 or more … all full of patterns and colors – always makes me happy to serve tea & cake (or wine, cheese and olives – you decide!)
on a colorful tray … and it is a perfect “table” in the grass or on the beach.
↑ Don’t forget to dress up the good stuff. Beauty for the butter. Home baked bread with butter. Not even Nutella can beat that taste I think.
↓ Let’s face it: macarons are just small crunchy bites of Heaven. I cannot wait to order a to-go-box like this at Bottega Louie – must eat place in LA.
Picnic-spring-party for my ears ; )))
↑ All packed nicely in this – oh yes please.
Calm bath after a long sunny day outside. My Number One mom-treat is actually not chocolate, not hand bags, or glam-bam-accessories… but: delicious and luxurious bath-body-shampoos – cannot get enough ; )
All picnic items, earrings + milk bath etc.: from my favorite webshop www.leif.com
Go visit amazing Louie in LA here.
Champagne to-go Harvey Nichols
The past weeks has been driving this little family crazy. But the very busy – and arrghhhr … days are past now. Easter, relaxing and pj-days are just around the corner. We cannot wait!
Life is a one time offer, use it well.
It’s all about Valentines … this week?! My days are fully packed with design for the second book this year – the studio is very busy … Plus everyday life all over plus trying to sell our lovely home. Read: +busy!
My daugther just asked me, how we should celebrate V-day? Well, we might celebrate it and perhaps all four of us. With sparkling bobles and a festive table … and a bit dancing on the table ;o) a LOVELY break.

Back in school (the danish school of media and journalism) we visited the grand graphic designer Poul Lange at his studio in NYC. Waauuu … we were all totally fascinated by him. Graphic designer, fine artist, photographer, Danish, living in NYC, working at his own design studio in Manhattan for European companies as well as American. We wanted it all!
Yesterday Poul visited us here in Copenhagen at the lovely Mühlbach & Clemmensens Kreative Saloner. A very inspiring evening. Poul is very creative and talented in many ways creating collages, book sleeves, photography, type + calligraphy. Above collage is The Kir Royal Drink (the perfect Christmas drink by the way!) from Poul’s work for the cocktail recipe book Storied Sips.
The evening were mostly about Poul’s work with paper, glue, photos and callagraphy which I found VERY inspiring. I seem to sit a lot in Illustrator or Photoshop almost never “outside” my Mac anymore. Back to basic again with glue, paper and copy makers all over my studio in 2015 – yes please!
The above illustration is Poul’s own label for Beaujolais Nouveau.
Poul often sets up “rules” for making various collages. The above is one of a series of stories he created to give voice to a collection of vintage anonymous photographs. I like the “rules”-idea … a kind of theme which make you not think just create. Funny and unexspected designs occurs that way. Love it. Find all of Poul Lange’s work here and website for his collages here. Enjoy!
It’s November. We have not seen the Sun for days in CPH. I dream away on grey days like these. “If I could snap into a chair right now, where should it be …” I would love to …
