Daniel Wellington Classic Petite

March 16, 2017

 

 

A few days ago this stylish beauty arrived to me – a brand new Classic Petite watch from Daniel Wellington. Love the minimalist and classic design of this timepiece and I’m sure it will be one of my wardrobe essentials for a long time. Mesh strap is really comfortable and it’s so easy to adjust the length to make it fit perfectly.

Also, with a code “DECORDOTS15” you will get 15% off of your order from Daniel Wellington.

Frankie & Frenchie new kids bedding collection

Frankie & Frenchie new kids bedding collection Let's Go Exploring

Frankie & Frenchie Bandit Bear bedding

Exactly a year ago (really funny coincidence what I found out while already typing this post) I introduced you Frankie & Frenchie – an Australian based brand designing and selling modern and quirky environmental friendly kids bedding. Longer introduction and interview with lovely ladies behind the shop can be found here and you can see Zero to Hero bedding set from their previous collection in my son’s room here.

Frankie & Frenchie has launched a new range of bedding sets, fitted sheets and cushions which complement their monochrome collection with fun and playful characters. Mischievous Miss Meow and buoyant Bandit Bear will add a sense of playfulness and fun to any kids room or nursery and these fun characters are the perfect companion for little ones to explore new things.

Like the previous collection this one too is screen printed using eco-friendly ink on 100% GOTS certified organic cotton. I have to say that I’m really satisfied with our Zero to Hero bedding we got a year ago – it looks still like new (despite it is used almost constantly as it’s my oldest son’s favorite bedding set) and it feels so soft and silky to the skin. Maybe Bandit Bear should move in with us too? :)

Täpselt aasta tagasi (huvitav kokkusattumus, mille avastasin alles siis kui olin juba seda postitust kirjutamas) tutvustasin siin Frankie & Frenchie‘t. Frankie & Frenchie on Austraalia päritolu veebipood, mis müüb nende enda disainitud väga lahedat ja skandinaavialiku stiiliga lastetuppa sobivat voodipesu. Pikemat tutvustust neist saate lugeda siit ning siin on postitus meie lastetoast, kus on muu hulgas näha ka nende eelnevasse kollektsiooni kuuluv Zero to Hero voodipesu komplekt. 

Frankie & Frenchie‘l on just välja tulnud uus kollektsioon voodipesu ja lõbusaid patju, millel figureerivad seiklushimulised tegelased Miss Meow ja Bandit Bear. Eriti tore on see, et nagu ka nende varasem kollektsioon on seegi trükitud kasutades vaid keskkonnasõbralikke riidevärve ning kogu sari on tehtud 100% GOTS sertifitseeritud orgaanilisest puuvillast. Pean mainima, et olen meie Zero to Hero voodipesu komplektiga väga rahul – see näeb hoolimata peaaegu igapäevasest kasutusest (tegemist on Tobiase lemmikuga) välja nagu uus ja tundub väga siidine ja naha vastas mõnusalt jahe. Kuigi Austraaliast ostmine on tolli tõttu veidike keerulisem, hakkasin siiski mõtlema, et äkki peaks Bandiit-Karu Oskarile sõbraks kutsuma :)

Images show different interior spaces in norsu‘s signature pastel colour palette, styled with the boutique’s carefully curated collection of Nordic homewares and diverse range of art prints. The collection also features several images shot in a Scandinavian ‘boho luxe’ style, reflecting a new direction norsu is taking since announcing their partnership with iconic Swedish design-house Love Warriors of Sweden earlier this year.

The release of this collection coincides with the opening of their second Melbourne retail store in Hawthorn next month which will compliment their existing Malvern East store by providing a space to showcase furniture, rugs and art within a styled insitu environment.

I think everyone who has furnished or decorated a home know the feeling of finally finding that perfect piece of furniture only to find out that it’s dimensions doesn’t fit the space or its color isn’t exactly what you’ve been looking for. And I think that everyone deciding on a new furniture for their home have tried hard to imagine how exactly this new piece would look like in their home. Well, I have some good news for you – furniture industry is moving to a direction where these kind of problems are a history!

Tylko, a Warsaw-based design company, is bringing digital revolution into designer furniture industry by allowing customers to personalize pieces to meet their specific tastes and needs. This is done via multi-platform Tylko app where anyone can co-create a unique piece of furniture by starting with a basic, pre-designed shape and changing its properties to match their taste and space. While customizing, Tylko has ensured parameters and algorithms are in place so that the end result will be visually harmonious and represent the vision of the designer behind each piece. After deciding furniture configuration, finishes and dimensions, the app’s augmented reality mode can be used to create a virtual view of the furniture in a real environment using your phone’s camera. It’s a completely new way of designing and purchasing furniture and pretty awesome, don’t you think?

At the moment their selection includes minimalist and modern Ivy shelf created by Tylko’s own design team, Hub table designed by world-known designer Yves Béhar and Totem mill salt and pepper grinders by Polish designer Krystian Kowalski.

Shop love | THE POSTER CLUB

September 30, 2014

THE POSTER CLUB shop

THE POSTER CLUB

Webshop THE POSTER CLUB

Online shop THE POSTER CLUB

 

Today I want to introduce you one really lovely online shop THE POSTER CLUB. It’s Copenhagen-based webshop offering a carefully curated selection of posters fitting perfectly into every Scandinavian style interior. They ship internationally and that’s even better – shipping will be completely free if you order 2 or more posters! Their collection includes many of my old and new favorite prints, from example the ones from My Deer, Playtype, Kristina Krogh and Kristina Dam.

To get to know a bit more about THE POSTER CLUB I asked its founder Thomas Nissen some questions which he kindly agreed to answer.
 
Tell us a little bit of your background.

Before launching THE POSTER CLUB I have worked a couple of years in different marketing related positions and prior to that, owned a clothing store for five years in Copenhagen, selling menswear from high end fashion brands. But design and interiors has always been a passion to me, so when the opportunity came to open up my webshop I had little doubt, that it was the right thing for me to do.

How you came to the idea to launch THE POSTER CLUB?

The idea behind THE POSTER CLUB actually came when I was searching for some posters to our home a year ago. I really had a hard time finding something that I liked and the selection in the different webshops were often either very limited or on the contrary huge with posters of various standards, making it almost impossible to know where to begin. I felt like what I needed, was a shop that brought all the good stuff together for me in one place. And that’s really what I’m trying to do with THE POSTER CLUB.

What are your plans for THE POSTER CLUB?

Well, since we launched, only three months ago, everything has been quite hectic and busy – but in a good way. Coming out on the other side, it is now time to look at some of the many ideas we have to make our shop even better and we expect to implement some really unique features within the next couple of months. Besides that, we continue to add new posters to our selection on a weekly basis, and have a lot of exciting new stuff on its way – especially photo art, which is a trend that is really booming right now. So expect to see much more of that in the near future.

What inspires you?

I spend hours every day browsing interior blogs and magazines, Instagram and Pinterest in search for new posters to the shop and to keep up with the trends. That is by far the biggest source of inspiration to me and it never gets boring. Its simply amazing how many talented people are out there. On a personal level, me being from Denmark, I’m definitely inspired by the minimalistic design that Scandinavia is so well known for, which I guess also shows in the simplicity and “look-and-feel” of my webshop.

What is your advice to someone thinking about launching an (online) business but still in doubt?

If you think you have a good idea, I say go for it. And don’t be afraid if some else is already doing the same. Just do it your own way and try doing it better. There is nothing more satisfying than building something up from the bottom and seeing it grow. But remember to be realistic about it, it takes time for people to get to know you. The good thing about doing business online however, is that you can actually often start out by doing it a long side your normal full time job, just to see the potential of your idea/concept before going all in.

 

Thank you Thomas for your time, it was so interesting to get to know a bit more about you and THE POSTER CLUB!

P.S! There’s a giveaway running on my Instagram feed where you have a chance to win a Playtype poster of your choice from THE POSTER CLUB’s selection! Hop over here to join in!

My lovely blog friend norsu interiors turned one on 1st September and what would be a better way to celebrate than releasing a gorgeous set of beautifully styled photos featuring their current range of products. Norsu’s selection includes many things high on my wish list (Pia Wallen Cross blanketleather strap hangers from Matilda ClahrIcelandic sheepskins and By Nord bedding just to name a few) and I’m happy to say that they have now added some gorgeous products from danish brand Ferm Living into their selection. For those of you living in Australia I have some really great news today – namely, norsu is opening a new bricks and mortar store in Melbourne in this October! So sad it’s this far away from where I live – I would love to visit this shop as I’m sure it will be as lovely as their online store!

 

I’m so happy that lovely ladies Nat and Kristy found time to answer also some questions.

Tell us a little bit of your background.
We both come from corporate marketing and communications roles within large multinational organisations. After both having our first children (Lachlan & Annabel) within a month of one another, we were introduced through a local mother’s group. We not only shared the experience of being new mums together, but also discovered a mutual love of all things Scandinavian design related along the way. Not long after returning back to our corporate roles after maternity leave, norsu was born. It provides us with a creative outlet that we were unable to channel in our corporate jobs, while also allowing us to utilise the skills we had gained from 10+ years in those roles. Nat also has an IT degree under her belt which has really come in handy with the website management!

How you came to the idea to launch norsu?
After continuously obsessing over Scandi blogs and interior mags, one common theme emerged – the lack of access that Australian consumers had to purchase beautiful Scandinavian homewares. We were initially going to focus on selling art after an overwhelming amount of feedback received for a piece of Marimekko fabric that was on display in Lachlan’s nursery, but the business concept soon evolved once we realised we couldn’t stop at art!

How do you balance work and family life?
This is very tough at the moment. norsu is growing at a rapid rate, and it is proving difficult for the two of us to keep up with the demand. In addition to norsu, Kristy is only just stepping away from her corporate role at the end of this month, and Nat has recently had her second child, Harvey, which is a full-time job in itself. We tend to take norsu one day at a time, doing what we can, when we can, but always ensuring it doesn’t encroach too heavily on our quality family time. This often means a lot of late night work when our little ones are asleep, to enable us to spend time with them during the day.

What inspires you?
We draw inspiration from many forums, but at the moment, our favourite would have to be Instagram! We love getting to know people from all over the world, and the insights into their lives that Instagram allows us to experience. As we are dealing with designers on the other side of the world, it is not always easy to keep across their new products and collections via traditional means such as magazines or email. With Instagram, we are able to gather this information as quickly as others living in the same city as these designers, and are finding it to be extremely advantageous in keeping a finger on the pulse of emerging trends.

What is your advice to someone thinking about launching an (online) business but still in doubt?
Go for it! If you have a strong passion and a great idea, you really have nothing to lose other than your time. With the amazing software available these days, a website can be very inexpensive to set up, and extremely easy to manage. Keep things simple, and make sure you utilise other online forums such as social media to complement your core platform. Above all, back yourself, and make sure you have some fun along the way… Good luck! :)

Thank you ladies, it was so nice to get to know more of behind the scenes of norsu!

 

Since I’m currently enjoying my time with family and friends in magnificent Cote d’Azur I won’t post here more during this week. So I wish you a great week and see you already on next Monday! :)

Today is a happy day for me as I received my long waited package from Heimelig shop and I’m more than satisfied! I’m really impatient to show you my new treasures, but as we just arrived home and I have loads of things to do here before leaving to our country home tonight, this must wait a bit. These beautifully styled photos above feature only some of the gorgeous products you can find from this lovely shop. I think you already imagine how hard it was for me to choose what to take and what to leave… :)
