Interior: Cuddly pillows for the weekend

Right in time for the weekend, the weather got a little bit “meh” here in Copenhagen. On the way to work this morning, I was walking through the rain, and it was that stupid amount of rain where you think it’s not quite raining heavy enough to open your umbrella, but you arrive with wet hair anyways. During the afternoon, the sun came out, but on my way home, a slight rain began again (talk about perfect timing!). But now, who cares, it’s the weekend, and I can cuddle up on my couch all day with a hot chocolate watching the last of the Olympics, if I feel like it! And to fit that mood, I’m sharing some really nice and cuddly pillows that I’d love to put on my couch!


IKEA pillows

IKEA Stockholm and HAY pillows

Broste Copenhagen

Batik cushions from Bolia

Black and white with a splash of color from FERM Living

“Simple” pillow, OYOY

Another one from FERM Living

Feather pillow, By Nord


Classic HAY pillows

These HAY pillows exist in all kinds of colors, and I love how they can add a splash of color to an otherwise relatively monochromatic, black and white room. Below are some ideas for that.


Happy weekend!

Danish brugskunst: Lene Bjerre SS14 glassware

After work, I took a little stroll by Magasin today to walk through the interior section and see all the new spring/ summer designs. Magasin isn’t quite ready with it yet (unpacked boxes and some last-last-last-chance winter sales), but I saw enough to make me want to re-decorate my entire apartment - again…

What I especially liked was a new series of printed glassware by Lene Bjerre, a Danish brand based close to the Limfjord in Nothern Jutland. They manufacture natural-inspired “brugskunst” (“useable art”), a Danish word describing things that are useful but still pretty, like vases, decorations, plates, silverware etc. I love the idea of combining art and usefulness, and if we’re honest, isn’t that what interior design and decoration is really all about? (read more on brugskunst here)

Below are some pictures of the AGNES collection. I think they are absolutely beautiful and I would love to serve some cold refreshments out of them in the summer! These pics really make me dream about cold drinks with lemon wedges and long, warm nights on the balcony…
