We just had the most cosy relaxing family day, it has been weeks since the last time we had a full day like this. We kept it simple. No fancy glamsy dishes. But to die for yummi fingerfoods: hotdogs and grilled toasts, and a greeeeat bottle of Rhône (and later a bit dancing with our yummi kids). The week is over and it was full of selling our house. STILL in progress! And soon we hope we can: Look forward to a new life in an apartment in the center of CPH. VALENTINES was a day all about joy + being together. Lovely. Get the mmm … oh so crisp grilled toast recipe here. Sit down smile share and ENJOY.

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!
The IKEA web magazine IKEA family live magazine interviewed me last month and it became an article about my home and how much I like and use IKEA + how I mix and match other designs with IKEA furniture. The above pictures are from my all time favorite room in our house: the kitchen! Find the article plus many other decor stories here. Enjoy.

So I have these funny glimsy square eyes from playing Skylanders with my son for hours. It is soooo much vacation time at our house this week and I have filled the kitchen with easy, funny tastings for this week. Package design and convenience mmm…food came first when I shopped for Christmas in Magasin’s food department the other day. The Whittard “Praline Hot Chocolate” with tiny, fine marshmallows oooohhh… cute design with a two layered beautiful can plus easy made hot chocolate with a decadent nutty flavour – bring it on! The instant flavored coffee taste good… I actually did not expect it to (BUT had to taste it!). I’m not into coffee syrups, sucker sweetness in my coffee and bought a smooth vanilla (thinking it was less sweet and flavored!?) and I was surprised I liked it. It is not freshly ground espresso (Sherlock!) but it works as an easy instant and it keeps my eyes mild round and my fingers from the cookie jar to day (I had my share of sweets + cookies the past three days!) and no weird sweet after taste. Have a nice relaxed and tasteful Holiday out there.

during our vacation we try to visit all the gelato bars in Copenhagen. The best. The most wonderful one. The ultimative ice indulgence… I could go on and on but you get the picture… is: Si Gelato. I prefer the one at Skydebanegade just near by the great play ground at Skydebanen in Vesterbro. My favorites is: Johan von Bülow lakrids, dark chocolate and a fruity scoop (at this day i chose blood orange).
And while we sit in the Skydebane park enjoying the tasteful Sicilian ice cream we try to imagine how this park in the middle of the city ones were the Royal Shooting Club’s fields. Since 1948 is has been a peaceful playground and garden. It makes my kids wonder about the city’s history and the great wall in the park makes them try to imagine how and where the King and his people stood with their guns. We enjoy the playground in sun and the energy level is very high and funny there. In the end of the day I sneak over to the cozy Kaffe & Vinyl coffee shop for a little break (just around the corner) to buy some steamy hot cappucinos for my husband and I. City breaks with kids are not bad at all but not very relaxing.
