I think the debate that the book and the phenomenon Undecorate have created is very interesting. Some, including myself, find the free, creative and personal no-rules-approach very liberating. Breaking ‘rules’ about how the perfect home should look like is pure pleasure. To play with colour, scale, proportion, texture, etc and find something creative, lively and [...]

Although it’s been some years since the first trend-spotting of odd-chair-dining I’m still intrigued by it. There is so much variety; from deep-laid and all too perfect ‘chair exhibition/miss-matching’ to the flea market hodge-podge look.

The Danes generously add colour splashes and charm to the white (or light) backdrop. I’m inspired by the homey atmosphere this brings and cherish the [...]
This spring there seems to be one arty-farty movement going on. Here’s some inspiration.
Now for the holidays, and not least for New Year’s, many tables need to be decorated - so I just wanted to forward a few tricks in giving the table that joyous and festive spirit. The always inspiringly creative gal Underbaraclara has put tealights on the cake stand and in small baking tins scattered around [...]
