Trompe l'oeil

Every summer the Abbey church of Bellay in Switzerland hosts a contemporary artist to make an exhibition in the magnificent barock church. This year it is photographer Renate Buser who has made a fantastic large scale trompe l'oeil exhibition. Read more here.

Gentry

I'm obsessed with the quilted fabric that is designed by Patricia Urquiola especially for the Gentry sofa by Moroso and as far as I know the only way to get hold of the fabric is to buy the sofa. Annoying...but good that the sofa is one of my favourites too.

A fresh start..

I have so many exciting projects going on this fall, one of them is that I am making a completely new website and a new look on the blog. It is really about time, the website has been closed and under construction for a year and the blog has never changed in five years. I can't wait for it to be released and I am so greatful to everyone involved in these projects who puts up with me being so picky with everything!

Brown

I'm trying to make peace with the fact that summer is over and the calendar is already full by talking myself into darker, moody, cosy colours..and it kind of works. Brown will do my fall...(with hints of summer skyblue and grassgreen).

Home away from home..

I love all the hotels decorated by Studio Ilse..and this might be one of her best, SoHo House Berlin

Teche

On my wishlist.. the glassboxes "Teche" by Piero Lissoni for Glasitalia.

Summer naturals

I can't really shake the summermode out of my system, I keep craving for natural materials, light furnitures and tanned colours with crisp white.

Happy Thursday!

It is finally time to open up Lotta Agaton Shop after the summerbrake. Today we are open 12-18 (..and will be every thursday from now on, but please note that we will not be open on saturdays anymore). I hope to see you in the store today! Yay!

Yvonne Koné

I am so sorry I missed the opening of Yvonnes Konés flagship store in Copenhagen last week..It looks amazing..but now I have a good reason to go to Copenhagen soon. 

Frama Kitchen

I am back after five weeks of magic and well needed vacation. I love it when you have had so much time off that you can't wait to get back to work again. I kick this fall off on the blog with some new great pictures from dear Niels at Framas home (and the new Frama kitchen) photographed by Ditte Isager for Kinfolk.

Anti globalisation

I do understand the importance of branding and recognition but since people travel a lot these days I think it is really boring when the big brands have a global store concept that looks the same in every city and on top sell exactly the same items. Nowadays I try only go to the stores in the country of origin, like Prada in Italy, Alexander Wang in N.Y. etc. but most of all I search for stores with a hand picked selection.
This is  a sneek peak from Isabel Marants brand new flagship store in Bangkok with handcrafted woven bamboo screens covering the walls and ceiling to reference Thai craft culture. To me this is a great example of how to ajust the store interior to the country where it is located and I think this makes global shopping much more interesting. See more from Isabel Marants Thailand store here.
