Inspiration for your home | Black walls

At home most of my walls are white or concrete and I get really happy seeing the small still life’s I created throughout my home contrasting with them. Looking at this picture I have to say I also have a huge crush for black walls. I love the kind of dirty look on this wall, I […]

A raw and concrete family home in Denmark

Icelandic design | Black clay & molten lava candleholders

Iceland is a kind of magic country, in my opinion, I like how designers get inspired not only by nature, but also use material found in nature for their creations. Baugar (Halos) is a series of sculptures by Guðný Hafsteinsdóttir. Consisting of three different sized rings made from coarse black clay and molten lava Baugar is a […]

We visited the exhibition on our way to the […]

Icelandic design | Reykjavik School of Visual Arts X Aurum

Space-saving bathroom solutions with shelves

When travelling one of the things I enjoy most are the spacious bathrooms in the different hotels, like the beautiful blue bathroom in the Praktik Garden this last Summer in Spain, and not to speak about the freestanding baths in some hotels. Although most of the rooms in my own home are really spacious for the apartment it […]
