• 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…

  • DIY: Rainbow hanging

    We all love rainbows, right?! I think I knew the colors of the rainbow in the right order before I could tie my shoe laces. And now they are fashionable again. Yay! So here’s how to make those cute rainbow hangings, if you don’t feel like bleeding half of your salary to get someone else or a renowned brand to make them for you (and fair enough! It takes time to make them, so if you want to make a living out of selling anything hand made, you should charge a small fortune for your products – they are both unique and I bet a lot of love has gone…

  • DIY… Autumn leaves macrame

    I love decorating with leaves. I used them for our wedding (have a look here) and with the spare leaves, my daughter and I made a cute macrame hanger for her room. Glam up your leaves Macrame hangers are everywhere! Big and bulky made of wool, or thin and sleek with rope. I have a love-hate relationship with these types of macrame hangers. I love the way they give a little extra to a room, but it reminds me so much about all the houses that I used to clean as a social and health care assistant, that I feel a little reluctant to have one in my home (it…

  • DIY… Orange revamp

    Hello you lovely people,  Today a little DIY of the easiest kind: painting furniture!  Ideal when you feel you need a change in your interior, but can’t justify buying something new because there is nothing wrong with your items. This time my daughter’s stool received the paint-treatment. She mainly uses it in the kitchen to reach the sink. We also use it several other places around the house and after I’ve made the setup next to the front door (as on the pic), I am kinda hooked on keeping it there (I just need to convince all other family members that it’s a good idea). Since it is her stool,…

  • Banana leaf sleeve

    Hey all! Thanks for popping by and giving my banana leaf sleeve a look. I was looking for a budget-friendly alternative to some sort of copper-messing type of planter for my recently bought banana leaf plant. You know, one of those planters that you can find at any interior shop with respect for itself. But sometimes I get cheap, and this was one of those times (and my bank account told me so). So I decided to make a plant cover myself. I love knitting and crocheting, but since having kids, I am usually busy trying to avoid them tearing down the place. And I am often so tired in…

  • DIY… Banana leaf chair: My first upcycling project

    At a flea market, I fell in love with a little yellow chair. It was dirty and worn down, but the frame was in good condition. It had this cool midcentury vibe and elegant legs to it. The Swedish seller, with chewing tobacco in her mouth, was a hard one to bargain with, but I managed to get her to drop 40% in price. This way I could afford to buy new fabric to replace that nasty yellow cloth (we are on a budget here!). The week before that, my 4-yo daughter had been on a play date with a new friend, and the new friend had her own lounge…

  • DIY… Tweaking twigs

    We live close to a large nature area. We enjoy putting on our outdoorsy clothes and go on long walks and scavenger hunts with the kids. We always find something we want to take home; a lovely rock, a funny looking leaf or some sort of broken off branch. Our 4 year old had this phase, where she dragged home every single twig she saw lying on the ground. After a while we had a rather extensive collection of twigs piling up on our outdoor deck. They were pretty in their forms and shapes, but they where wet, dirty and to be honest just rotting away in the wind and…
