Monday means mood board.
No doubt I have a thing for lamps – and lamps by Inga Sempé in particular. You can see two of them here, from when Houzz visited me. The newest addition is the ‘w153 Île’, made in collaboration with Wästberg. A multi-purpose lamp that can be clamped, placed on a flat surface or mounted on a wall. I bought it at Atelier September and chose the light yellow one, that fits perfect into my cool white shades at home.
I have been sick since New Years, so this is not a picture taken today, as I look 80. It’s from my trip to Marrakech in November, where we stayed at the most amazing place. In the heart of the Moroccan countryside, perched in the title Berber village Tagadert, you find Villa K.
The villa is designed by French architecture firm Studio Ko – impressive architecture and a combination of contemporary and ethnic style design objects and furniture.
The view from my bedroom was stunning – I could see the infinity pool and the beautiful Atlas mountains in the background. If going to Marrakech, be sure to look up Villa K.

Designed by Inga Sempé, Ruban Mirrors are a range of ribbon-edged mirrors. The oak frame is wrapped in soft yellow ribbon, that also functions as a loop for hanging. This was a Christmas present from my best friend and it fits perfectly into my minimal setting. Check out other colours and sizes here.

Bring it on January.
If you follow me on Instagram you might remember I went to Paris for Fashion Week back in October. No trip to Paris without a little shopping, so I stopped by Balenciaga and brought back this awesome navy knit. Deep blue has become a new neutral for me and this ribbed piece is now a wardrobe favourite. It can be worn as a sweater, but works just as well as a cardigan over a white tshirt. Worn here with my beloved flared velvet pants.
I always start the new year by getting rid of old beauty products and starting a new skin care routine. This January I’m giving my skin the big Aesop treat.
Start with a cleanser, then follow with a toner that contains anti-oxidants to balance skin, refine pores and ready skin for hydration. Then apply a lightweight serum that acts like a daily vitamin booster, and gives a matte finish. Finish with a hydrating cream that absorbs swiftly. Three times a week treat your skin with a face mask – in the cold moths I’m opting for hydration, hydration, hydration. Buff and polish from top to toe with good body scrub before body lotion.
