• DIY: Easter birds

    What: Easter birds made from yarn. Supplies: Yarn, tiny piece of card board for the beak, iron wire, scissors and twigs to attach the birds to. Duration: 10 minutes per bird. How to: Making these birds is pretty simple, but hard to describe (I tried, but failed). So just follow the steps on the pictures below, it should be a pretty straight forward process. Worth knowing is that you should pull the yarn relatively tight, so the separate strings are aligned and don’t get all flappy on you, once you start to bind the tail. Don’t forget to trim the tail. It might be yarn birds we are talking about,…

  • Playful posters

    Danish start-up company Villum Vito designs and sells colourful posters to stimulate children’s imagination. “It’s my mission to add a little happiness to the world with my posters,” says owner Christina Stenderup.  Almost one year ago Villum Vito was founded by Christina Stenderup. “I have always been passionate about drawing and I have a natural interest for the use of language. When one of my close friends gave birth to a baby boy, I made my first poster for him as a gift. This really got me hooked on the idea of turning my drawings into a business.” An intense period started, where Christina not only transformed her best creations…

  • DIY: Daybed with storage

    If you’ve been following my blog and my Instagram for a while, then you have undoubtedly seen our daybed. My husband and I built it when I was pregnant of our second daughter. Now, I must admit that I’ve made many bad interior decisions when I was preggo with her, but this wasn’t one of them! I have done countless naps on it during my third trimester and I love to do my (school-) reading on it. The girls also sit and read on it, so adorable to see! It is a little on the low side, so even the youngest one (she is 1,5 years old) can crawl on…

  • Inspiration: My dad’s place

    African masks on the eating table, a thousand antlers in the kitchen and giant paintings taking up every centimeter of the walls. Welcome to my father’s house. All worlds into one Where: The Hague, the Netherlands Who: Peter Type: Lower floor town house Living surface: 96m2 In a nutshell: More is more ‘So why interiors?’ I’ve been asked this question a lot after I started my blog. There are many reasons for it, but today I’d like to shed a little light on one of them. And that is that I grew up with loads of interior inspiration around me. My father has a very keen eye for interior decorating,…

  • Inspiration: Elin’s room

    My daughter is not known for being subtle or cautious when using colors or patterns. If it comes to clothes or decorating, she is pretty funky. I think her style is rather cool. You can catch her in a burgundy dress, that she’s put over a long red-and-white striped blouse with a poofy sleeve, casually combined with leopard trousers in red, pink and purple. And purple shoes to top it of (they have lights in ’em). That is how she rolls and I love it, even though it hurts my eyes. She picks it herself and as long as it’s suited for the weather, she can decide herself. What a…

  • Inspiration: Matthijs and Wendy

    This family home for three is filled with upcycled family furniture, cleverly combined with newly bought pieces to create an elegant, modern and personal interior. Family affair Where: The Hague, the Netherlands Who: Matthijs and Wendy, Felix (0) Type: Town house, lower floor  Living surface: 95m2 In a nutshell: A family that builds together, stays together Wendy and Matthijs were adamant: ‘We specifically went after a house in this neighborhood, because the area ticked all our boxes: it is family friendly and close to the city center. Both the beach and green pockets are nearby, and for me as a commuter, it was also vital that I have quick access to the train station,’…

  • Fenne’s favorites… Thrifted teak

    Thrifting furniture is hot. And with good reason. It’s budget-friendly, sustainable, the pieces are often of outstanding quality, and due to its previous life, old pieces add character to your interior with their patina. Here is the story of our first thrifting-experience. Expensive lesson When I came to Denmark about nine years ago, many of the Danes I met were already thrifting. In the beginning I thought it was just buying other people’s old crap, but one morning I found myself infected with the flea market syndrome too. I’d been eyeing the purchases of our friends that were already spicing up their interior with great pieces, often thrifted in the…

  • Fenne’s favorites… Kentia palm

    You know you’re getting old, when you all of a sudden can’t bear to live in a house where there are no plants. I’m not talking about the occasional bouquet of flowers, but I’m talking about a proper, green plant. One you have to take care of, if you don’t want it to wither and die. I am not known for my green fingers, but we decided to buy a green fellow anyways and see if we could keep it alive. A little over a year ago, we bought our first living room plant, a kentia palm. It was monster expensive (I thought), so I’ve been taking real good care…
