Art by Gjode

I found the most beautiful illustrations yesterday that would all suit so good in a picture gallery on my wall. They are all made by talented Ditte Gjøde.

The first collage shows four nice posters called Glimpse. What a wonderful mixture of colours! The nuances are just so me. They would all match good with Ditte's other black and white posters, for example the forget-me-not poster and the botanical prints.

Beautiful October

Blazing colours on my autumn walk in the park.
Nature is so beautiful right now.
Like a sea of leaves everywhere!


October mood

I went nuts when I saw the flowery bomber jacket in a TV- interview today with Izabella Scorupco. A must-have! I am going straight to KappAhl tomorrow after work. Soo stylish!

I also collected some other details for the autumn decoration. Patterns in all forms and directions, dark glass, dark wood, dark colours, concrete and brass.

KitchenAid | A new friend

Let me introduce my new kitchen love - a white KitchenAid! I am so happy about it because I have dreamed of this for such a long time already!
Of course I wanted  to test it out immediately upon arrival, and thought for a while what to bake. I decided to go for Leila's blueberry buns, as her recipes never disappoint you. And I can honestly tell, it was a real pleasure to use my KitchenAid. Those were the days when I got stuck with my hands in the dough and could not pour more flour without messing up the whole kitchen. Everything neatly inside the shiny bowl now and I did not have to do anything at all! Just add the ingredients, listen to the baking sound and do the dishes alongside of this. Multitasking in a nutshell. It felt so luxuriously and was so easy-peasy so I will definitely become a baking pro now! I just had to pour a little more flour once in a while and then the dough took care of itself and was soon ready to mould into buns.
Of course I also like that the stand mixer is a real beauty in itself and can stand all year round just looking good on the worktop. I think it is one of the most popular American interior details that have gained ground in the Scandinavian design homes.
KitchenAid is available in a variety of colours (see all alternatives here) and is a stand mixer of high quality. It was brought on the market already in 1919.

The stand mixer has been rewarded with a lot of design prizes and is exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and San Francisco. And, not the least, in my home!
