Update: My very own picture wall

Way back in February, I wrote about wanting to create a picture wall in our living room, and I realized I haven’t really given an update on that! Well, I tend to have a million ideas and plans, and I also tend to abandon the larger part of them rather quickly. But this project I actually completed, and here is the result!


I’ve actually already changed one of the pictures in the frames, and I’ve added something new as well. That’s the beauty of the picture wall - it’s easily adaptable to taste, season, etc.


For my own picture wall, I decided to have a nice mix of prints and photos, and I added the two wooden letters for our initials L and M that we once got for a christmas present, to mix things up a little bit.


I found this classic “DANMARK” print at one of my favorite stores, Girlie Hurly (for a really nice review of the story, check out Melanie’s blog “Dejlige Days”), and I just love it. I keep wanting a Copenhagen map from Kortkartellet, but they only come in sizes too big for the picture wall. I’ll just have to find another place for it!

On the other side, we have my lovely “YapYap” print, a funny postcard in German (to balance out the Danish! It reads “Shh, is that a chocolate cookie calling?”) and a picture of the best pets ever to walk this earth (who both, sadly, passed away). They will always hold a special place in my heart, so I put them up there as well!

I’m always looking for new ideas and inspiration, so if you know of a great artist, let me know!

Interior trend: Spring pastels

Slowly I can begin to feel that spring is in the air - and boy have I been waiting for it! There’s a warmer breeze every now and then, and it bears the promising scent of spring, some shy rays of sunshine break through the clouds and warm the skin, and all in all, the cold just feels less cold with every day that passes.

With spring come some fresh new colors, mainly pastels. Soft blue, mint and rosé tones dominate around our Scandinavian favorites, and doesn’t it sound like a great idea to break the monochromity with some colorful accents?


I love that they take the metallic trend (especially copper) to the next season with them, and the combination of copper with the soft pastels is just brilliant. I’m also crazy about the cups with the gradient colors in the third picture.


Probably most widely know for their colorful pillows, HAY brings out its classic “Mosaic” tray in spring-y pastels, and they too have amazing glassware with color gradients.

Normann Copenhagen

Everybody knows their trademark “Krenit” bowls that are black on the outside and some bright color on the inside, and right for spring, some fresh new colors have been added to the palette. I also love the two sets of bed linens below (“Plus”, “Cube” and “Sprinkle”), they just look so fresh and pretty!


Ah, ferm. I just love almost everything they do. I especially adore their unusual, geometric bathroom cabinet, which now comes with a sweet minty pastel color for spring. And let’s not forget their vases and cute colorful “Winebottle” candle holders!

H&M Home

The fashion chain has been bumping up their interior game, and they are not doing too bad! Their new spring collection also has some really nice pastels in it, e.g. pillow cases, romantic vases and candles.

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!

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.
