dear reader

I’ve got a perhaps slightly strange habit that I’d like to tell you about. I’ve always had it but it was only today, lying in the chair and looking out of the window whilst having my regular dental check-up, that I realized that this might not be normal at all! I looked out at the beautiful roofs and the church in the middle of the town of Randers. I thought that I could actually easily live in this apartment so whilst my teeth were being examined, in my head I was starting to furnish the dental care clinic as a home. That’s when it hit me that I do this "thing" very often – without noticing. Almost anywhere I go, I start furnishing the place in my head, no matter…

with a rustic touch

Perhaps you’ve noticed that we often feature flower articles by the Swedish woman Linda Hansson? She’s our flower girl and the woman behind "artidensbasta". We’ve been cooperating for the past year and Linda makes beautiful bouquets, wreaths and decorations that inspire anyone who loves flowers. She’s got a very special style and she’s just so good at combining flowers. Ever since she was a child, she’s been in love with flowers and nature, and already back then she just wanted to be creative and make beautiful things using her hands. Her grandmother worked at an old garden center and Linda can still smell the special aroma of that place. She tells us that she recalls the woman who worked the worn register holding bundles of roses in her hands. That…

do your own embroidery

If you’ve never done embroidery before, the best way to learn it is either to ask someone with experience to show you, buy a book about embroidery or find a YouTube video with instructions. Here, Pernille has created a selection of cute cross-stitch embroideries which is one of the simplest techniques. She found the motifs on the internet, printed them and drew her own template using small crosses. Then she transferred the motif to tracing paper and placed that on top of the fabric. Making your own patterns might not be the easiest thing to do but you can also buy lots of nice patterns on the internet or in sewing supply stores. If you’d like an easy start, go for a coarse fabric with lots of structure. Thank you to Pernille Klitgaard…

delightful flowers

Linda has a good eye for color combinations and for finding special flowers in the most extraordinary colors. Here she’s made some Christmas bouquets and an Advent wreath using fresh flowers and plants such as chrysanthemums, lamb’s-ear, Christmas roses and eucalyptus, small cones and houseleek. The colors are dark claret, a touch of rose cream and the very special, cool green found in eucalyptus and olives. This is an absolutely beautiful combination that adds a rustic feel to these bouquets and wreaths. The decoration was made on a straw wreath. Linda started out by creating a "base" out of various neutral-colored greenery – not the typical Christmas fir but all kinds of other greenery. Then she added another "layer" to add maximum volume to the wreath, using, amongst other things, eucalyptus,…

visiting the mill

We’ve shown you Valérie’s beautiful garden before. She lives in the small town of Saint-Pryvé-Saint Mesmin, Orleans, in a fantastic, old watermill from the 18th century which was constructed by monks. The family’s been living here for 25 years and they’ve renovated everything themselves along the way. When they bought the place, it was just an empty ruin and apart from the big beams, not much of the original mill house was left. The beams were painted white just like all the ceilings and walls. The first floor now offers a large living room, a modern kitchen, a bedroom and the dining room. All the rooms have been divided using big windows to allow light to flow through the entire building. The interior design is very personal and features a wonderful…
