Giveaway | Architectmade


Dear readers, I am so happy to announce that in cooperation with ARCHITECTMADE I will now organize a lovely blog giveaway for you! I am sure that one of you wants to win the latest newcomer in ARCHITECTMADE's wooden collection, the cute owl? One owl is included in the competition and its value is approx. 75 €!
The owl is a genuine piece of Danish design that you can place anywhere in your home to gild your everyday life! The funny thing is, that the head is attached to the body with a magnet, which gives you the opportunity to rotate the head and change the owl's expression to reflect a certain mood or emotion. 
Paul Anker designed the owl in 1960. It is handmade of oak wood and the eyes inserted are of wenge wood.
To participate, all you have to do is:
2. Write a greeting to me in the comment field below and tell me why YOU want to win the owl.

The competition ends at Sunday 24th August at 11:59 p.m. EET. When the decision has been made, the winner will be announced on my blog. The decision cannot be appealed against. If any possible gift taxes occur, these are paid by the winner.
Good luck!

The land of childhood is a land forever.” | Paul Anker

You are the lucky winner of the cute owl and this will be sent to you shortly!



Summerhouse on Gotland


I have waited for electronic pictures from this beautiful house on Gotland, but as they cannot be found I photographed one myself from the Plaza Interiör magazine. A bit on the slant but it is too dark now to take a new one. What I wanted to show was the nice summerhouse with the untreated front which will turn grey in course of time, the huge windows, the beautiful, grey limestones and in fact, the smallest detail, which inspired me equally much, if not the most... the terracotta pot with the yellow flower. All this in such a nice combination.
The whole story can be read in issue 8/2014 of Plaza Interiör.


In Copenhagen

You remember this stunning home?
I found a few more photos from other angles via Yellows'.

It seems that I cannot get enough of the combination design, vintage, art, graphical impression and colours in a happy mix.
