Ikea goes to the ballet

I´m decorating a little loft apartment here in Copenhagen. The budget is tiny tiny. In assignments like these I always spend a lot of the budget on paintwork as it gives maximum effect for few dollars. Then I look to Ikea for almost all furniture, lamps etc. When all is done I see how much I´ve got left to spend and get 2-3 more extravagant things like a bright colored Vipp dustbin or some colorfull prints for the walls. I found this funny lamp and fell instantly in love. The mood board for the apartment is quite raw and industrial with pale colors on the walls, steel and wood for kitchen and furniture and in the middle of all this coolness I plan to place this fun, crazy lamp. I´ll show you pics of the place when I´m done and you can let me know what you think.

Ps. Thumbs up for cool styling Ikea!!!!

Bubblegum for the ladies by LV

Just can´t get enough of all the colors in fashion at the moment. Had to show you this fab campaign pic from LV. So inspiring and so cool styling!!!

Diamond Lights

Diamond Lights can be bought at Casashop price: 250 kr.

I´m writing an article about webshops this month and look what I stumbled across at Casashops webshop. I´m just loving these bulbs designed by Swedish Eric Therner. Next time we are remodelling the bathroom I will put 7-8 of these bulbs around the mirror. Very Marilyn Monroe I think!

My favorite stools

It´s springtime…..

It´s springtime folks!!! Both in my calendar and outside. This means picnics on the beach, hanging out with friends and being outside all day at our summerhouse in the north of Zealand. This picture is from a feature i did with photographer MariaP, at a house just around the corner from where we live. You can read the whole article and see all the pics from this wonderful inspiring summerhome in Alt Interiør this month and even the trendy Italians at Casa facile has bought the article. Kind a neat :)

Out of office….

Back on the 16.th of February….

Secret Boudoir

Wallnut had the pleasure of working with Tine Arentsen Willumsen of Above & Beyond and her partners Giorgio Armani, Moët & Chandon, Nimb, Ole Lynggaard, Sten Bergströem, Valentino, Valisere, Viktor & Rolf and YSL on the fantastic fashion event “Secret Boudoir” Monday evening.

The scene was set in extraordinary surroundings at Hotel Nimb next to the Tivoli Gardens. Tine and her partners wanted to give their clients a sensual and luxurious experience that they would not forget.

In 6 suites there were beautifully styled dancers dressed in luxury from top to toe, acting out different scenes from unpacking to more sensual scenes at the end of the journey…

After a walk through scenes that can only be described as Vogue magazine gone live, it was time for pink bubbles and chocolate in Nimbs atmospheric bar.

Wallnut had a big part in planning and styling the Secret Boudoir universe and oh my did I have fun!!!! And thanks to Brittany Watson for helping me out, when time was …. Very short!

Trends in 2012

Sorry guys!

Last week I had the privilege of interviewing designer Leif Sigersen at Vesterbro. On the way back I stopped by the interiors shop Maur. And look what I found! Sebastian Errazuriz has designed this neat chopping board for Kikkerland. He wanted to show us women the way to a mans heart…. How very thoughtful and romantic of him!

It can be yours, all you have to do is “like” wall nut on Facebook and share the post I did on the chopping board with your friends.

Little blue monsters at Colette

One of my favorite concept stores Colette in Paris has together with the NY based designer Kevin Lyons pimped the legendary Danish Vipp waste bin.

Kevin Lyons is famous for his humorous little monsters that now decorate the waste bin in Colettes signature color. During the design process the young designer pictured loads of blue monsters having a blast of a party in the shop after closing time.

The waste bin is produced in 30 limited edition copies and can be yours for 300 Euros. Visit the fab store Colette in Paris or shop on line at www.colette.fr.

Merry Christmas

Wallnut wishes all other nuts a very merry christmas and a happy happy new year

Happy campers….

Last time I went camping was in Portugal in 1998 I swore I´d never do it again… But a gal´s got a right to change her mind and with tents like these I´ll camp out anywhere at anytime!

They are designed in Britain by Fieldcandy. Their mission is to produce unexpected designs for the camping space, my only comment is MISSION ACCHOPMLISHED!

If you can´t find me at Roskilde this summer just look for the watermelon tent! I´ll be there…

Christmas at The Conran Shop

As much as the English love our minimalistic Scandinavian way of decorating, just as much do I love their maximalistic way of decorating for the holidays.

I never go to London without popping by The Conran Shop. Out of all the ornaments they have in the shop these are my three favourites.

I got the pheasant for my husband who just started hunting this autumn, never have I seen such excitement over a christmas ornament…

Ho ho ho Wall Nut is in a nutty give away mood

Check out these fantastic ornaments! Rikke Høgh from www.rebelchild.dk has once again spotted a cool designer that combines humor and aesthetics. Reiko Kaneko is the name of the designer that is behind these beautiful and funny ornaments made of porcelain.

Wall Nut is in a “give away” mood. All you have to do is invite your FaceBook friends to “like” Wall Nut and you will be participating in the draw of one og Reiko´s ornaments. The two winners will be announced on FaceBook on Friday. So go spread the “Nutty” word!

Vipp grows a moustache

Grand old design icon Mr. Vipp is together with 1000000 of other men world wide growing a moustache this Movember.

It´s for fun … But also to create awareness about mens health which tends to be somewhat of a tabu.

If you are a man then go to www.movember.com and sign up. If you are a girl without an exceptionally large amount of facial hair growth, then support your man by getting hold of one of these bad boys!

Antler chandelier

That nature and chandeliers are some of this seasons biggest trends is no longer breaking news. But check out this trend-fusion and the black ceiling…. I love it! So dramatic, so cool and yet really cozy.
