THE REST KEY HOLDER // YNDLINGSTING

yndlingsting_rest_key-holder

I came across the REST key holder online and fell in love. It is handmade using oak tree covered with gold leafs for a beautiful effect. The key holder has 3 gold coated power magnets underneath, where you can put your keys.

“The REST key holder is a symbolic key holder in many ways. It is designed to remind you of to leave your problems at the front door. It also happens to be that REST in Danish (as well as German) means residues. And this is excatly what the REST key holder is made of: wood residues.” – Yndlingsting

EASTER FUN FROM TIGER

thatscandinavianfeeling_scandi-easter_tiger1

Is it too early to get excited for Easter?.. The other day I went to Tiger, one of my favourite shops for affordable Scandi-style decorations, and got a couple of fun items to start the countdown!

Chocolate eggs – because they are without doubt the best part of Easter. These pastel coloured ones are the perfect decoration to have in a bowl on the table (if you can resist to not eat them..)

Polkadot egg-shaped candles! These will look so good next to the chocolates, and will fit perfectly in my Seletti Egg Holder in ceramics.

These little stickers are to decorate eggs with, a fun idea for the breakfast table on Easter morning. I might put these stickers other places too.. They come in a pack of 2 sheets so you have plenty to spare.

Tiger doesn’t have an online store, but they are now located in 27 countries around the world and you can find a full list on their website.

ARNE JACOBSEN + DESIGN LETTERS

ingridesign_designletters HI

This typography was drawn by Danish architect Arne Jacobsen in 1937, but it still communicate a very modern minimal look today. The monochrome style is consistent through the whole range of DESIGN LETTERS products such as cups, plates, teapots, tea towels, notebooks, pencils and more.

I love the mugs, I have one with an I (my initial) and one with a C (my two loves in life – my boyfriend & coffee..) They are the perfect size and also comes with lids if you want to use them as a container instead.

Here is a selection of some of the many items available with the iconic vintage ABC lettering on, find them all here.

Did you know that the letters were originally created for internal signage at the Aarhus City Hall?

A POP OF KÄHLER

Ever since the new Kähler ceramics collection Unico came out I’ve been eyeing up the little yellow one, and I was so lucky to get it for Christmas! It’s the perfect round vase, and can be used on its own with or without anything inside, or as here together with another larger vase from the same collection. A great way to add a pop of colour to your home! And if you’re not obsessed with yellow like me there are other beautiful colours available too; pink, green, white, light blue & the dark blue as seen above.

“All elements in the range are design objects in their own right and add a splash colour to the room they are in. Use the unique and decorative Unico range as exclusive works of art in your home and create a clear cut style throughout your interior decoration.” – Kähler

You can find both these beautiful vases and the rest of the collection on the Kähler website.
