My latest on instagram – follow me “yummidesigns” here.
Green boosts, yes please: green colors in my sofa, more plants in the windows, palm leafs all over for Miami vipes – on a grey February day like this, it looks + feels soooo good. Click on the photo and get inspired!
The Shoreditch House got my attention (again!) this time for Valentines. We did not go, but oh my … a hotel with a “nap-eat-drink-card” is my kind of place (+ situated in East London – I have to go soon!) Click on the photo and enjoy!
No morning without Marianne’s espresso! My kind of café tiny and full of home made cakes, cookies, hot drinks, magazines for inspiration, mmm… Click on photo for details!

Last weekend we went to get inspired in London. I don’t have a favorite spot in London, I have many! King’s Road in Chelsea still have small boutiques and cosy tea+coffee-places, very good bars and restaurants and some very nice shops but we needed some steamy Flat Whites (goodbye Macchiatos, it is all about Flat Whites now!) plus some sweeeeet on the side and chose above L’Eto Caffe on King’s Road (L’Eto actually have several caffes in London – find them here – I like they kept an intimate atmosphere) . A small place, with oh so very edible windows (look above!) the room was totally packed, full of joy and talk, tea, latte, sparkling pellegrino, chardonnay, and a lovely salad buffet for those who do not have a sweet tooth. We had some perfect Flat Whites, and Jesper a fruit tart like above with raspberry… yummi! I chose toasted coconut bread with chocolate spread – not bad at all! Take a peek before/after at Habitat on the other side of King’s Road, lovely! More about King’s Road look here.
I did these illustrations/posters a few weeks ago for my friend Fru Jensen. Her café Fru Jensens Fristelser is very tiny and on the top of a old train station, it is a very cosy place – full of home made food + freshly brewed coffee. I take a loooot of mocca breaks down there!

Well, it is almost time for a break here at studio – the summer finally came to Copenhagen. Not that I’m going anywhere fancy but I love the fact that we can spend many days together without work schedules, just eating a lot of ice cream from Paradise, enjoy some jazz and playgrounds in the parks of Copenhagen and take a pit stop (or five…) at Kaffesalonen were we will sit out side on the lake – pick up some real good take out on the way back at Torvehallerne. That’s vacation.
But now it’s time for coffee – espresso ice blended – mmmm… cold and bitter with a touch of sweet syrup.
Found the edible posters at Etsy.
I have a client which I have made a whole bunch of design for which includes a cupcake! I’ll show you the design when it is ready. We needed a picture of a very specific cup cake, and Mariam Mistry the owner of Serenity Cupcakes made it for us. While the special designed cupcake is posing in front of a camera bought some extra fine Serenity cupcakes here at home (the above picture) full of banana, butterflies and shiny pearls = a Banana Bumblebee and a Liquorice Devil with liquorice powder and creamy topping. Mmmmm… smells a bit like summer to me. Cannot wait to show the kids! Visit Serenity Cupcakes in Copenhagen right here.
Occasionally my clients ask me: do we really need all that fancy design we just want to produce good food and sell it. Does design sell quality food products, isn’t it okay to start out with a simpel information sticker and a logo on top, or just make it personal with a signature (which no one can read anyway!). I can come up with a loooong explanation about standing out, telling stories, detailed concepts, being noticed and remembered, giving and the few seconds we have (or rather: we might are lucky to have!) to get attention in a store among hundreds of products. Look at this above, Recipease food and kitchen store in London, we would love to go in there NOW, right. It just would not be the same without that pink facade. It stands out. And that is just the beginning. Then you step inside: a store full of a top celeb chef’s goodies and recipes. Everybody would love to have Jamie Oliver’s food universe, or just a bite, and at this place you get a little bit closer. You can not just buy food, you can also take cooking classes, meet famous chefs, buy healthy and nutritious takeaway, kitchen tools, cookbooks, or just relax at the café. The whole concept is very nicely presented in a oh so edible designs from A to Z. Look at the takeaway packaging! Maybe you feel even a little bit at home at Recipease, it’s cozy, detailed, and everything smells so nicely of Jamie Oliver’s homemade and freshly prepared dishes. I like! I want to come back and spend hours there. And it is not just for the food.
