Welcome October! The leaves are already mastering their Bird Phoenix moment and changing rapidly from lush green to orange and red. I love it! Nevertheless, today's post is about interior decorating, something that we especially love here in Scandinavia. Some attribute this to our traditional way of living by inviting people to our homes rather than meeting out. Therefore our homes have to accommodate both the practical everyday life as well as being the setting of both intimate and elaborate dinner parties.
This spread is from an old issue of Danish women's magazine, Alt for Damerne. We visit jeweler, Orit Samuelsen and her lovely home, and I really like the rustic elements she has incorporated into a feminine and elegant universe. I like these clashes which helps to highlight each other. In addition, I really like her bold choices in art..
