Helle Mardahl – Candy Collection

Helle Mardahl Candy Collection - handmade glass lamps and bonbonnieres
Helle Mardahl has created a stunning collection of glass pieces named the Candy Collection, featuring a variety of designs in different shapes and sizes. Unique bonbonnières, table lamps, candy dishes and pendants based on Mardahl’s memories af sweet shops from her childhood. The objects and lamps are handmade – blown at a Danish glassblower which makes their organic blob-like forms unique.
It’s hard to choose the best pieces but The Bon Bon Table Lamp in Latte and the Bon Bon Medi in Pink & Latte are on point – you can see the full collection of candy here.

Helle Mardahl is an artist and designer whose work I have been following for years. Whether she created sculptures, installations, painting or clothing – it’s always been worth exploring. So also make sure you check out here other work – I’m very fond of her Egg Objects and her Rock Pots.
All of Mardahl’s work is produces by hand in limited quantities in Denmark.

Rodial Vit C Brightening Mask

Rodial Vit C Brightening Mask

Contains gifted products and ad links.

Rodial Vit C is infused with highly concentrated actives that retexture and revitalise skin, to reveal a smoother, brighter and more youthful complexion. Twice a week I treat my skin with a face mask and this week I’m trying out Vit C Brightening Mask from Rodial. It’s a lightweight gel mask created to give dull skin a youthful looking luminosity – just what I need. The mask is infused with 5% pure vitamin c to smooth and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots, which I have been seeing more of this summer. It also contains a blend of 10% exfoliating fruit AHAs to boost moisture levels and gently exfoliate. When applying the mask avoid eye area and hair line and leave for 15-20 minutes before washing off and follow with your regular skincare routine. Good morning with Rodial Vit C Brightening Mask.

The Rodial Vit C products have a very fresh smell so I have been using the mask in the mornings to wake me up before I head out the door. It’s quite the ‘pick me up’ to do while you’re drinking your morning coffee.

For more face mask read about ‘Smart’ and Re:Gene from Mádara here and the ‘Hyaluronic Intensive Treatment’ sheet mask from Magicstripes here – all favourites of mine.

C/RO Collection

C/RO-Copenhagen-Indoor-Outdoor-Furniture-Minimal-Interior-exterior
If you’re the lucky owner of a balcony or a garden, this is a brand you need to know. C/RO creates quality furniture for in- and outdoor use. The simple and elegant multipurpose items from C/RO are handmade in Sweden of recycled steel and they work for both minimal indoor spaces as well as outside.
The idea and philosophy behind C/RO started in 2016 and was developed by Camilla Rosén – freelance interior architect, designer and owner at Rosén Concept. Rosén specialises in concept development, activity based offices, space planning and interior design and after working with other brands for over a decade, the need for creating something personal started to grow and C/RO was born.
The collection currently features six pieces which of these two are my favorite –
the ‘Sundaybed. Eté,’ a light and airy piece made for daydreaming, and ‘The Chair. Menton’, simple and discrete.
The collection also contains accessories so that you can dress the furniture – you can add a canvas or a leather back to the Menton Chair and same with the daybed – the leather pillow is optional.
I don’t really have enough space to add a daybed to my interior, but the ultra light and minimal chair would be perfect in my bedroom and compliment the colour of the ceiling. I painted it yellow last year, after an inspiring visit to Finn Juhls House. See my yellow ceiling here and check out the C/RO collection here.

To celebrate three of their talented collaborators, Kinfolk is introducing a series of three limited edition, original photographs by Kinfolk contributors Andrea Gentl, Cecilie Jegsen and Danilo Scarpati. Each artwork is printed in Denmark on premium cotton paper and produced in a limited run of 250. My favorite of the three is by Danish photographer Cecilie Jegsen named ‘A Favourite Spot’ and celebrates the graphic shapes of a Copenhagen icon – Thorvaldsens Museum – the building made to house the sculptures of Danish Bertel Thorvaldsen.
