Luminodot





I read about this fabulous gadget on Janas blog, and now  it's on my wish list. The Luminodot is a frame with punctuated holes for small led light bulbs. Feel free to create your own personal  artwork, no skills needed!! it reminds me of cross stitches, nabbi beads and the old computergames (I'm talking the 80s here..) How fun and beautiful and with endless possibilities!!

Hay Oslo

Finally, our very own Hay store!
Hay Oslo opened last thursday, and it's the prettiest store in town. These Danes now their business. The store is designed mainly around my big love: the woody shelf, and filled with big and small treasures.
Hegdehaugsveien 27.
(On another note: Sigh! The best auction house for used furniture, Lauritz Oslo, had to close it doors..)

Douglas Coupland


The author Douglas Coupland's home looks like one big art installation. Plus he apparently loves Eames as much as I do. This home makes me jealous!

Richard Powers



A bundle of interior clippings from the oh-so-fabulous photographer Richard Powers. (see also the previous Autoban-post)

Autoban




The Turkish design firm Autoban is definitely one of my favourites. I love their use of wood and natural colours. The lamp in the middle is called Big, and the bottom picture is of their latest design a lounge chair called Nest. 
Top photo by Richard Powers , an Autoban-designed apartment. Perfect in every way.
