Coffee Moments

The Ferm Living Plant Box is not just for plants. What I like about this design is the versatility. After using the metal box for books and plants close to my kitchen and as a storage box in the bathroom. I now created a coffee corner in my living room. For a relaxed start of the day with my favorite magazines within reach. Using the special plate the Plant Box can easily be turned into a side table. 

During the IMM fair in Cologne last month I visited the Ferm Living stand themed “The Home”. I was impressed by their beautiful styling combining all (new) products. Also, Ferm Living presented an inspiring new catalog with beautiful photography, interviews and a product overview. 

“Our home is connected to so many feelings and memories that it can be hard to pin down. It is a journey with no end-point with constant surprises and new angles. Having a home and feeling is about more than things, home is where people come together and where life happens. The Home is an exploration of the little scenes that can take place every day”. Their stand and catalog take you through each room of the Home showcasing the existing and new collection combined in personally decorated spaces. To show you how design can shape your life and make it comfortable - Trine Andersen”. 

Next to the new furniture and products coming up I was enthusiastic about the new additions to the existing Plant Box. Like a metal box container, a metal divider and a square tray made of oak. This will provide even more possibilities to use this box in every space in the house.

This box is also suitable for smaller living to create an indoor garden, as a room divider or stylish storage solution. But there is also a smaller version available to fit in the windowsill. As a small wall box or a round standing version. All in various beautiful colors, like black, grey, dusty blue, dark green, red-brown or taupe. Easy to use separately but also nice to combine different versions.

Travel w/ Style

Looking back on 2018 with a big smile. It was a year filled with great collaborations and inspiring travels with my friend and partner in crime Desiree from Vosgesparis. Our first year for w/ Style Agency and looking forward to another year of working together! We complement each other well and have a lot in common. Like our love for traveling and discovering new places. 

We had an amazing trip to the Vipp shelter, a sunny stay at the Alexandra Hotel in Barcelona and last but not least, we discovered charming Malmö last Fall. We are happy and thankful for these experiences and trust in our agency. Can’t wait to grab my camera for our next travel. We have two planned in Spring already. On our special Travel page we show selected destinations, travel tips and favorite brands. If you are a brand or have a location we can’t miss, feel free to contact us for information and possibilities.

December Moments

In December I like to do something extra at home, as most people do. I used to have a big Christmas tree, but since I live in a small city apartment I keep it minimal with lots of candlelight. This also has to do with my taste that has been changed in recent years. Now I love to add some extra details and use home decoration accessories I can use throughout the year. I also felt more uncomfortable to use a tree for just one week and then throw it away. Instead, I found a cute 20 cm little ‘tree’. I will keep it as a plant after the festive season so I can use it again next year. And maybe it will be a little bigger by then.

For decoration, I like to use Items that can easily be transformed depending on the occasion. That’s why the hanging tealights by Ferm Living are so perfect. The design is minimal and timeless. They also provide an atmospheric and warm light. The hanging tealights are available in two different shapes: oval and a bigger round version. Both designed by Trine Andersen, founder of Ferm Living since 2005. A Danish brand specialized in small home furniture and accessories with a versatile and innovative collection: simple, functional, sustainable, high quality with a graphic and traditional Scandinavian look. The tealight holder is made of solid brass, whether or not finished with a black powder coating. To use on the wall or in front of a window. Or hanging from the ceiling as I did. One tealight or a few grouped in different heights. 

Since January is mostly a grey month with shorts days over here, I will keep using the tealight holders and style them in a different way after December. I love to do this on New Years Day. It became a kind of tradition: making small changes around the house creating new still lifes for a fresh and inspiring start of the new year. 

Last but not least: I wish you a very Happy New Year! Wen x
