Pictures from the left: The best beach for children (and dogs) at Sælvig Strand, childhood treasures in my old room, pictures from Ballen Harbour, the rest is a mix of pictures from Nordby and Østerby. The Lego we made shows us on holiday, and the dog is mine, Emma, sleeping in the garden.
 

My “editing eye” could not choose 3 really good pictures from my Easter holiday on the tiny island called Samsø so I made a postcard for you instead. The island has many shops that are only open in the holidays often with 50 % off on designer clothes.

I found a really cute Kathleen Madden dress in black velour at my favourite Samsø-shop D-signshopping in a village called Brundby. The owner, a designer, is so nice and has a great Nordic taste, if you go to the island you should stay at her hotel RumogRooms. The birdhouse on the postcard is from her shop and made by miho.

These wooden animals are designed by Kay Bojesen and manufactured by Rosendahl . I have written about Kay Bojesen before here.

 A tribute from Kay Bojesen to the Danish magazine Bo Bedre

The popular wooden animals have been given a new brand identity by the firm Make they also made this 50 year anniversary ad for the Danish interior magazine Bo Bedre.

Fresh shrimps and white wine..

 I am not the best cook so I am a big fan of the simple foods, like this: fresh shrimps to peel and dip in sour cream and lemon juice.

 Kinder surprise, paper toy

Do you remember those annoying German tv-commercials with the 3 suprises from chocolate Kinder-Eggs? – well my son loves them, and I gave in to buying them and was really surprised. Instead of a tiny plastic thing, the egg revealed an inflatable paper toy! It is so cute, you blow it up and use it as a ball and when it is flat you blow it up again. I love it! Way to go Kinder…

The Royal Cafe in the heart of Copenhagen is an enchanting place filled with fairytale atmosphere. When you meet this woodcutted sign you already feel that this is a cafe that allows experimental design that mixes old and new.

The interior is very detailed and feels very free and not clean cut and minimalistic like many other cafes you can find i Copenhagen. The cafe describes its style as “Funky Baroque – design confusion and humourous and chic”, wich pretty much sums it up. Arne Jacobsen´s Ant chair produced by Fritz Hansen has been resized for the cafe in a higher cafe-version. Holmegaard Glass have created the chandeliers for the cafe. The ceiling has shiny silver wallpaper with leaves.

You enter the cafe from a typical Danish city-courtyard.

Cut roses in still water outside.

Carefully arranged flowers at the counter top.

The cake is as good as it looks. My son had warm chocolate which of course  actually was heated chocolate the food is delicious and made with the same care and attention to details as the interior. The porcelain is, of course, from Royal Copenhagen.

A love seat by the window sill. Many designers have their art on display or for sale in the cafe such as Swedish Kosta Boda.

A miniature kitchen made from recycled material.

Very inspiring mobile decoration with silk ribbons hanging from the ceiling.

The murals show different Danish features like the wooden monkey made in 1951  by Kay Bojesen and floral decorations from Royal Copenhagen porcelain.

This Tripp Trapp childrens chair you find in almost every Danish home, and in the cafe they have one in gold.

More flower murals

I will definitely be back ♥
