The popular Danish crime series, The Killing, has had a ferm grip on me for it clings you to the screen! Two things struck me when i watched a few episodes: the character of Sarah Lund.... and the jumper!. Find out yourself what you think about the character, i just would like to mention it's an interesting way of marketing a handknitted jumper. 
In an interview with 'the Guardian' Sofie (Sarah Lund) stated that she picked out this jumper because it's unpolice-like, and it does not add to her sexuality. Quite a new approach to feminine police women in series! The jumper becoming a bespoken item and international FASHION HIT was not foreseen i suppose..

Note: the knit is traditional Faroese. The Faroe Islands lie to the north of Schotland an archipelago under the sovereignty of the Kingdom of Denmark. The undyed organic wool comes from hardy northern black and white sheep. It's lightweight, breathable and hypoallergenic. Who would've thought!

Mixing natural materials in one's interior gives a real sense of warmth. Since i started my own design studio i enjoy being able to work in different environments. In my home i love to work from my studio on the 2nd floor, where i have a lot of inspiration gathered around me. Working from my living room, with the fireplace lit in the wintertime and the big doors open in summertime, it's good to distance myself from the many books and items around me to be able to reflect on things.
One of my friends has started up his own furniture company and i was lucky to work with him designing my own multi-functional wooden table. In this table i can easily plug more than one laptop but important is the fact that everything can be quickly stalled in the compartments underneath to make room for lunch, tea, meetings & dinner!
