The classic Kubus from By Lassen is a very popular item around Christmas. I have two myself and they always take a more prominent place in my home around this time of the year. It comes as no surprise that the brand has some really inspiring Christmas images from their catalog as well.
I especially love the first image with the Mingle sofa in sheepskin, which is so perfectly fitting for this cozy time of the year.

Norwegian design company Ask og Eng recently completed this beautiful kitchen in a newly built home in Oslo. The entire kitchen is made out of Bamboo, which goes so well with the big windows and the abundance of light shining through. Cabinets were built until the ceiling, which matches the pitched roof very well. To reach the top cabinets, a bamboo ladder was integrated into the interior.
The little desk in the last picture with the bamboo wall treatment looks great as well and matches the rest of the interior perfectly.
As some of you might have seen from my previous post on Instagram, I just moved into a new apartment here in Munich. The whole place is pretty much still a chaos with walls of boxes to be unpacked, but I’m pretty happy with how my living room corner turned out already. It’s the first place that I wanted to finish, because it’s so nice to have a spot to relax and feel calm during all the unpacking.
You might notice some of the items from my previous living room, but the piece that makes this whole look complete definitely is the iconic Spanish Chair from Fredericia – the 60 years special edition no less ! I love how the olive green saddle leather combines with the solid soaped oak frame and the golden details on the leather closures. The chair fits perfectly with the flooring in my new place which has a warmer wood tint.
The Spanish Chair – usually available in the standard color options – celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. It was designed by Børge Mogensen in 1958 and manufactured by Fredericia ever since. The special edition you see in my living room was launched for the occasion of the anniversary and will only be available until December 31st of this year. To honour Børge Mogensen’s work, Fredericia searched the master’s archive and discovered this subtle, natural colour, which was one of his most loved hues and one of the dominating interior colours at the time.
To celebrate this special anniversary, Fredericia invited Børge Mogensen’s grandson, renowned fashion photographer Rasmus Mogensen, to portrait himself with the masterpiece created by his granddad in 1958. You can read an interview with him here.
This blogpost was created in collaboration with Fredericia, however all thoughts and opinions are my own. If you would like to see how the Spanish chair is made, you can watch this fun video.
I love the soft tones in this cozy bedroom. The very light grey on the bedroom wall matches perfectly with the different wood tones of the bed, night stand and floor. The beige of the vintage print stands out against the grey wall and the combination of bedding adds a very soft texture to the look.

Beautiful and minimal Christmas decor inspiration coming from Danish Georg Jensen. I think the brass and chrome works so well in a Christmas tree and the elements look so festive on a table setting as well. My favorite is the little acorn tree ornament, this is just too cute.
The basic Ikea Ivar cabinet, which originally comes untreated has become such a common item in Scandinavian homes all around Instagram these days. The basic cabinet can be painted or treated and I usually see it painted in the same color as the wall for a tone on tone effect. This contrasting version of the black treatment against the beige wall looks great as well and the leather pulls go so well with the look.

The Stockholm national museum, originally built in 1866 has recently been renovated. Gabriella Gustafson and Mattias Ståhlbom from TAF Studio, Carina Seth Andersson, Stina Löfgren and Matti Klenell collaborated to select and design the interior pieces for the museum. The team strives to create interiors that “highlight the process of making and celebrate the unfinished, in a house already filled with artistic masterpieces.”
I especially love the tints of wine red in the restaurant (in the first picture). This deep tint on the furniture matches the majestic building and the rough walls perfectly.
