Danish Design by LIND DNA

Last weekend I picked up yet another beautiful Danish Design home decor accessory. Or better: It was four them. Coasters made of optimized recycled leather by LIND DNA.

They came in this case with a little introduction of the company (read below). Pretty cool, I think!

My favourite decoration: Candles

If you moved to another country and could only take one decoration article with you, what would it be? For me it was candle holders. I actually took more than just one with me, but considering that my old place in Germany was full of stuff it is not really much, is it?

I think candles create such a cozy atmosphere and can make almost any room look nice.

Why Norway doesn’t need Starbucks

All you need is love… and a good cup of coffee. This is what it said on one of the blackboards at Steamkaffebar where I had an Iced Café Latte today. I have always wondered why there is no Starbucks in Norway but now I know. It’s these little cafés that make it absolutely unnecesary. Scroll down and see for yourself…

Brunch and interior design

Yet another thing I love about Norway is how much attention they pay to details here. Every café has its own style and special decoration.

Today we had brunch at Ostehuset. Not only do they serve amazing fresh food, but you can buy lots of different home decor things.
