Warm Autumn Tones


It has been a while, but I am still inspired by 3daysofdesign an annual design event to discover new concepts concerning interior, furniture and lifestyle in the heart of Copenhagen. A selected group from both Danish and international brands and designers showcase their work all over the city. Next to inspiration, it is also a great way to explore the Danish capital, discover new areas and enter special industrial and historic buildings.



During these days we were invited for some bubbles at Ferm Livings The Home. A beautiful old apartment to experience the feeling of a home decorated by Ferm Living with, naturally, their furniture, lighting and accessories. This apartment is normally not open for the public, so I was very pleased to be able to visit.


It was a warm and inviting welcome, not only because of the nice people and the atmosphere. The apartment and great styling were stunning. A good way to get to know the collection even better. The Mirage blanket got my attention a while ago, yet I’d never seen it in real. The composition of abstract forms is intriguing and makes it a bit artful. Trine Andersen - founder of Ferm Living - created the design of the prints inspired on oases and deserts. 


It’s a lovely addition to my minimal and mostly monochrome interior. For a chance, I didn’t choose a non-color home accessory. Since it’s Autumn I choose the warm Mustard version. Recently I have a crush on brown and beige color tones with a hint of Mustard. It warms up my interior and gives it a cozy feeling. I use the blanket both in- and outdoors. The pattern would also look good against my dark bedroom walls so I might put it on the wall in wintertime..

The Mirage Blanket is made of 100% cotton, jacquard woven. The fabric feels very soft and not too heavy.  Both sides have different colors so I can use it in two ways. The colorful Mustard version or more grey with soft tones. Both sides show the abstract patterns. The blanket is also available in grey and off white and combines very well with the Mirage cushion available within the same collection.

Frama Senses

As I mentioned in my Instagram post, Copenhagen is always a good idea. Can’t remember I didn’t come home inspired and motivated after a visit to Denmark’s capital. Yet during 3 Days of Design my mind and phone were loaded with ideas and fresh inspiration. When I get the opportunity I always visit the Frama Studio Store located in the former St. Pauls Apotek in the Nyboder neighborhood.

Other than previous visits, there was the possibility to visit the Frama office and new spaces above the store. I was surprised by all the different rooms, including a small apartment with a kitchen, guest room and bathroom. All decorated with Frama furniture and accessories. 

During the event, Frama collaborated with House of Grey. Both Niels Strøyer Christophersen (founder of Frama) and Louisa Grey the founder of House of Grey, were present to explain Senses. A special curation during the 3 Days of Design event. With the exhibition Senses each space of the Studio Store was an exploration in human senses. “We live in a world where overstimulation from the daily routine, online interactions, consumerism and a shortage of time has become evidently depleting.” 

Frama embodies a straightforward approach to design and aesthetic. I love the minimal design and use of natural materials, The Studio store is located in the former St. Pauls Apothek, which traces back to the 1800s.  A location so special of its own, but even more special with Frama as a resident. It shows their furniture, accessories, the Apothecary collection next to their striking kitchen design.

Hay Palissade Lounge chair

Years ago I saw the Hay outdoor collection Palissade during Milan Design Week.  I must admit I missed Hay during this years edition. Yet I fully understand their choice to play it big every few years. Last year their presentation was stunning. A beautiful Milanese apartment filled with Hay furniture and accessories, including a big green garden with the Palissade furniture. 

The outdoor collection consists of a table, different benches, stools and (lounge) chairs in light grey, anthracite, olive green, New is a hot galvanized version. I am the lucky owner of a lounge chair in anthracite, which is perfect for my small balcony. However, the Dutch Spring takes its time slowly this year, so the chair is inside at the moment. I like the multi-functional part of the design. It is suitable for both in- and outdoor use. For big and small living. Although the chair is made of galvanized steel with a special powder coating it is not too heavy to place it anywhere I want at home. From my living room to the bedroom and hopefully soon on the balcony when the sun has arrived. 

Hay is a Danish design label founded in 2002. In collaboration with well-known designers, they produce a complete collection from small accessories and lightning to large furniture. The Palissade Low Back Lounge Chair is a design by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec. The French design brothers have been working together for 15 years and have already designed many designer furniture items. In a studio in Paris, they work with their team to bring designs to life. They have collaborated with many famous brands such as Hay. 

In a two-year design process, the designers have continued to perfect the chair so it balances the body. The graphic shape and lines appeal to me.
