A bit stuck on this color scheme at the moment. Gray, wood, white with a touch of copper. And the compulsory black details to add some contrast.

Going all in for paint splatters today! I love their randomness, giving everything they touch an air of "I couldn't care less".

I am looking for new chairs for the kitchen. The fibreglass Eames chairs I have now are beautiful, but I just can't seem to get comfortable in them, and to be honest I am a bit bored with them... They have been seen so much in the last few years that it seems everyone has them, and I don't want my home to look like everyone elses. So now I'm on the lookout for something else. The new chairs should be comfortable to sit on with your feet pulled up underneath you (because that is how I prefer to sit), and they should have a clean design that my eyes can rest on for the next fifteen years or so. Could be a design classic or something from a new designer, as long as the quality is good.
Right now these are my best candidates, but I am also considering a bench for one side of the table, just haven't found the perfect one yet.

Weekly Wants #2: Vipp + Merci

At the beginning of summer when I was in Copenhagen for the DesignTrade Blog Tour, we visited Vipp and got to see their new bin that was just launched this week. It's a collaboration with Parisian lifestyle store Merci, transferring and translating Merci's iconic paper bags to Vipp bins, to be sold during Paris Design Week. If you can fall in love with a waste basket, I did. I want this so bad, but it's only made in a very limited edition, so we'll see...
I got curiuos about the company behind the graphics, Be-Poles, a small graphic agency based in Paris and NY. While browsing the many wonderful cases on their site I came across these photos from their studios, and wanted to share them with you. It looks like an amazingly creative place to work, don't you think?

Weekly Wants #1

This is a new category where I show you my latest wants and needs, the products I would want to add to my own home. Today I'm focusing on my entrance, which is in desperate need of more storage space, hooks and hangers to accomodate the clothes and accessories for the coming season. Autumn always makes such a mess in our entrance, with wet rain gear, gym bags, wellies, scarves and gloves everywhere! And since we don't have any windows here, the combined hook/lamp would be perfect to add some light.
Shelf: Lift by Staffan Holm. Hook/lamp: Hank by SMD Design. White clothes rail hanger: soon in Annaleena's shop. Marble hooks: Dots from Ex. T, available at Anasanga.
