Can you believe it’s November already? I thought it would be nice to start a new little monthly column here on the blog where I collect all my favourites throughout the month. If you follow me over on Instagram you might have already seen these items popping up in my feed, and if not – make sure you head over and follow along!

I love decorating my dining table, and this new table runner from Lupin Studio is a great way to add a fun vibe. If you are after retro yet minimal style table runners or tea towels for your home, I suggest checking out their items.

scandinavian feeling woodentoy kaybojesen danish

I recently had a visit from my grandmother all the way from Norway, and she brought with her the sweetest gift! She gave me this little wooden Kay Bojesen bear because it reminded her of my little puppy. Isn’t it just perfect? The bear was designed in 1952, and is today a Danish design classic.

scandinavian feeling ypperlig ikea  hay home

I have been waiting patiently for the new IKEA x HAY collection Ypperlig, and now it us finally in my local store. The item that caught my eye straight away was this lovely box, which ended up on my coffee table as the perfect way to hide tv remotes. I have my eyes on a few other items from the range too so I might have to make another visit soon…

This t-shirt! A great reminder to keep smiling, because a smile is the prettiest thing you can wear. Find it over on Alphabet bags webshop along with a lot of other cute items.

scandinavian feeling arket handcream table

And last, but not least, Arket. I recently discovered Arket after receiving this hand cream as a gift from my friend Berry, and now I’m obsessed with their minimal products & style! If you live in Copenhagen, London, Brussels, Munich or Stockholm I would highly recommend paying a visit to their store & cafe. This modern-day market offers essential products for men, women, children and the home, focusing on well-made, durable products designed to be used and loved for a long time. Their Geranium hand cream is great, and doing wonders for my dry winter hands!

What have you been loving this month?

The blog is intended to share her knowledge and love for Scandinavia; touching upon everything from interiors, design, lifestyle, travel to hygge. A place where you can get inspired to find that Scandinavian feeling yourself, no matter where in the world you are.
