This past weekend Finderskeepers threw their design/clothing market at Korsgadehallen. There were tons of sellers with handmade jewellery, big color-block posters, and screen prints galore. My friends Double Standard, WAAITT, My Buemann, and Liv Caroline looked great at their tables. I spotted a cool sweatshirt style leather top from Hide and noticed that soon they’ll have a webshop.
Heydays, based in Oslo, is not only one of my favorite design studios, but every friday they post the best playlists on Spotify. When I’m stumped on what to listen to, I always consult their profile, so thanks gentlemen! Follow their work and tunes on Facebook.
Layervault posted this great article about a big change happening within design. I am personally a fan of flat design versus skeuomorphic as a learning UI/UX designer, and so wanted to share another’s perspective on the matter. Another thing I stumbled upon recently is like a reddit for designers and it’s called Designer News, conveniently enough.
It is with complete pleasure to say that I am for the first time, a proud owner of the Massimo Vignelli Stendig Calendar. Ever since I began design university, I dreamed of having this hanging above my bed, and I just love how big it is. This 2013 season it was given to me by my Mother and arrived in quite a fashion– Anders and I were hosting a small studio dinner and the calendar arrived by post merely minutes before people arrived. What bizarre timing! Here you can see another part of our cozy kitchen, it’s all coming along nicely.
As a bonus, my cat Marmalade felt compelled to attend the photo shoot. She’s the best!
One year ago I attempted to start a blog documenting my life in Denmark but only managed to write a single post. One year wiser with plenty of great experiences, (plus a good 20 minutes of trying to remember my password), I’m back! I wish to share with you all the wonderful things I enjoy here in Scandinavia: food, wine, interior & graphic design, fashion, and everything in between. I’m just a simple American girl learning a new way of life and hope you find inspiration in my posts.
Anyhow, much has happened in my life since this issue of Monocle was published, and I’m happy to admit it’s been a positive ride. Although it’s been a year, I still find myself curled up with a cup of coffee + this survey. It highlights many great aspects of Denmark and reminds me of all the things I still need to explore! As delighted as I was to find this issue last Christmas, I additionally bought their newspaper edition named Alpino. It gave me many ideas for winter get-aways and cozy tips to enjoy the cold weather. And, being that it’s around the Christmas holiday now, what could be better than giving a subscription of Monocle to a loved one?
