IN PERFECT HARMONY

I can't grasp with the idea that April is already here, and Summer will arrive in a blink of an eye. But for now, let's celebrate the beginning of a new month with this gorg kitchen from our friends at Sköna Hem. In a striking palette of black and white (one of my favorite color combos), this kitchen shows how this two opposites can come together in perfect harmony to create such an welcoming space. Ideal setting for a Monday morning cup of joe.

SCENT AND SENSIBILITY

One of the many things I loved about my trip to Stockholm last Summer was discovering one of my favorite fragrances to date—Pulp by the Swedish brand Byredo. My fascination started when I walked into the lobby of the Nobis Hotel which was infused by scented candles from this wonderful brand. Ever since I returned from my trip, I've noticed how popular Byredo has become in the fashion world, all thanks to the vision, passion and design sensibility of former professional basketball player Ben Gorham. Today, to my delight, I share with you his very Scandinavian home in Stockholm. His eclectic flat is a combination of new acquisitions mixed with old classics from the 1950s—particularly his collection of chandeliers. If you want to dig in more into Ben's wonderful style, you can do so in this great The New York Times Magazine article. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

WARRIORS OF DESIGN

The secret is in the styling. Of course, taste and creativity are key too. For the creative team behind the Swedish Design Studio The Love Warriors these attributes are innate. From interior design to brand building, this talented team of four excel in their trade. Besides their wonderful design work, they love to travel the world in search of unique items and hidden gems to sell in their store. These beautifully curated images capture a few of their special treasures available in Le Shop. And guess what? I already started making my wish list.

IN THE MOOD FOR SPRING

Last year on my trip to Copenhagen, I visited, among many gorgeous spaces, this stunning apartment set up like a gallery/showroom right in the middle of the city. I have to say it was quite the treat. You might remember it from a post I did featuring The Apartment in all its glory. A few days back, I was pleasantly greeted by an email from its Co-founder and Creative Director Tina Seidenfaden Busck with pictures of the space newly decorated for Spring with the most amazing furnishings. I'm particularly enamored with the bench by Ilse Crawford (above) they've recently introduced in their kitchen. Come on, that tall back is to die for. Don't you think? Luckily, most the pieces in their beautifully curated vignettes are for sale in their site.

AN IDEAL MARRIAGE

Born out of the partnership between the famed Danish design house Fritz Hansen and Italian firm Spotti, the first Republic of Fritz Hansen showroom opens its doors in MIlan. This magnificent space combines the best of both of both worlds—classic Nordic style and Milanese tradition—creating a fresh new look. Undoubtedly, the limited edition pieces and site-specific installations ultimately make the store a unique place to visit. Is anyone game for a trip to Milan? This might be worth a visit. Happy weekend!

INSPIRED BY THE PAST

I'm always fascinated to learn how designers come about their wonderful creations. A few weeks back I visited my dear friend and talented designer Deborah Ehrlich at her gorgeous Hudson Valley farmhouse (which I featured here) and had a glimpse at one of her new pieces — the Crystal Jelly Jar Shade. Although she's mostly known for her paper thin, clear-as-water, and absolutely flawless crystal glassware, Deborah thought it would be cool to venture into the world of lighting. Her inspiration came from the ingenuity of farmers who back in the days transformed basic jelly jars into impromptu shades for their lighting fixtures. Her classy version is meticulously hand blown in Sweden and is a testament of the purity and delicacy of her work. So guess what? To celebrate the start of its production Deborah is having a launch sale on Fab.com through this Thursday (hurry, time is runnin out). The lamp iincludes the ceiling fixture with porcelain base, patinaed brass fittings and the crystal jelly jar shade. I'm beyond-words thrilled to see the final product come to life.

EDITING AT ITS BEST

It's quite obvious this is not the home of a hoarder, but the serene sanctuary of a meticulous couple like Jesper and Majbritt. Their Copenhagen nest is a beautifully edited composition of mid-century pieces accented by an eclectic mix of artwork. For them less is more and to avoid cluttering their space the follow a rule a live by: when something comes in, another must go out. Trust me, as hard as it is to get rid of some of your precious pocessions, it's the only way of keeping things tidy. Surely, keeping your color palette to a minimum as they did also helps.

CELEBRATING MODERNISIM

I just came across these wonderful prints inspired by the all-so-iconic Scandinavian aesthetic, and I'm just loving them! It's Liz Lyons' way of paying homage to mid-century, modernist design and designers like Eames, Jacobsen, Saarinen, Cathrineholm, Lindberg among others—and of course some of their most emblematic work. The prints come with a white border, ready for mounting and hand signed by her. You can see her complete collection in her Etsy shop Visual Philosopy. Enjoy!
