LOOKING FOR INTERIOR TREASURES – VISIT YOUR NEIGHBOR 😉
Today I went on a day trip to Malmø with my mum. We have this tradition that we twice a year visit our neighbor country Sweden. Interior-wise and trend-wise we have a lot in common, the Scandinavian look but the benefit of being Danish is that its a bit cheaper to go shopping in Sweden so if you are in DEEP NEED of Scandinavian design visit Sweden! I must admit that I am not really into the minimalistic Scandinavian look myself, I find it a bit too mainstream and boring – sorry! That being said I think Scandinavian design just “rays of” quality and luxury and I do find MUST HAVE pieces that I love to mix with container-treasure, vintage look and colors – MIX MIX MIX if you want a dynamic and lively look 😉
How do you like this mix? I think the original white tiles and the vintage-look porcelain sink work perfect with the copper faucet and pipes! The photo is taken in the shop Granit, f you are into industrial and Scandinavian – check it out!

I know its everywhere and I feel like its becoming a bit too much BUT I have to show you this and then I´ll go for a copper-break 😉
I found these HAY copper hangers 3pcs. 129SEK, but you can get similar ones in a good quality for only 69 SEK in Lagerhaus. Lagerhaus is must see if you are going to visit Sweden – its cheap and you´ll find a lot of fun stuff for the home and of cause a lot of cheap but cool copy-cats! A COPPER CLEANER… it has gone way too far!! Time for a copper break 🙂
HAVE A NICE AND SUNNY SUNDAY EVERYBODY!!
Just been around the world of interior bloggers and came across the award winning DIY blogger Kristi Murphy. She has made such cool things in copper and copper look alike! I want to show you her DIY lamp and salt´n pepper lux-lookIing SHAKERS! That might be my next project! Check out Brit + Co for the full tutorial 😉

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYBODY – NOW YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO THIS WEEKEND 🙂
I must admit that I do like the copper look especially if its not a mass production! I found a ´recipe´ for a DIY project at the blog Kreavilla to make these beautiful candlesticks. I really wanted to make them myself but I had to face it – I just dont have time right now, so I started to search around and found a man in Denmark who makes exactly these candlesticks! I contacted Peter, who is retired and wanted to spends his time doing something fun – candlesticks! You can order the sticks just as you like them – if you are too busy for DIY projects;)
The sticks are made of copper pipes available in most construction shops. Check Kreavilla for a list of everything needed for the candlestick project!
If you want t make an order, contact me for the Peters details.

IN HONOR OF PH!!
The iconic Danish designer Poul Henningsen would have turned 120 years on the 9 September this year! On that occasion Louis Poulsen has decided to launch a limit version of one of the first lamps in the PH system. The shade and socket of the lamp is made of copper and the middle and lower shade is hand-blown glass. The copper is unpainted which will add a marvelous the patina to the lamp over time.
This is really a unique lamp – pricy but a piece of art, its DKK 9000 – The lamp is sold only for a limited period: 1 March to 31 May 2014 and each lamp is produced by order, so deliver time can be up to 4 months! If I am lucky to get ´tax-money´I really will consider it – its not only an interior treasure its a hanging ´save up´an investment – who am I trying to convince 😉
You can still find Poul Henningsen original lamps around at auctions, in vintage shops and flee-markets!! Ill go hunting for them and let you know where to go 😉
