Sponsored by Hotel Panache, Paris

October 27th-29th I had the great pleasure to visit and photography the stylish boutique Hotel Panche in Paris. The hotel is dressing in the corner of rue Faubour Montmartre and rue Geoffroy Marie in the heart of the 9th district in Paris. The hotels is not far away from the Grands Boulevards, theaters everywhere, lovely restaurants and almost neighbor to the beautiful Montmartre with a stunning view over the French capital.

I felt very comfortable and cozy staying at this unique hotel with a very playful modern design interior, a touch of  Art Nouveau and so many carefully choosen retro details everywhere. A gorgeous lobby area where I was enjoying my afternoon tea while sitting in the rust plush coaches feeling the cozy atmosphere. The hotel is designed by the French interior designer Dorothee Meilichzon.

I had the most delicious and healthy breakfast at David Lanher’s adjacent restaurant. Likewise I had a fabulous dinner in ditto restaurant with localy sourced food at affordable prices. I can warmly recommend to try it.

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to attend a three days blog tour to visit the beautiful Pillivuyt factory in  Bourges in France with a group of bloggers from Scandinavia. They’ve been manufactured quality porcelain for almost 200 years. Timeless is the word.

This old fabric is filled with gorgeous shapes, porcelain mass and a very lovely poetic light everywhere. Our guide had to wait for us all the time when we kept shooting pictures of all the hidden gem in the old fabric, there was so many pretty details to take pictures of. I mean I could have been shooting at this place for days. We went on guided historic tour in the fabric and saw some of all the processes in the production of the beyond beautiful porcelain. Pillyvuyt is known for its timeless design, high quality, stylish shapes and genuine materials that are made to last forever.

I found it very exciting and inspiring to get behind the scene on this old factory; it gave me a unique insight to the brand.

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to attend the Scandi Design Tour 2017 together with a group of bloggers from Europe, organised by Fredericia Furniture and Georg Jensen.

On the first day we visited the new Frederica showroom where Thomas Graversen, second generation owner of the family business and his son Rasmus Graversen held a craftsmanship and history tour in the showroom.

The visit at Fredericia also included a meeting with a craftsman from Tränsjo Garveri who showed us how the leather of the iconic Spanish chair is carefulyl cut , smoothened and colored on the sides. The Spanish chair was designed by Børge Mogensen i 1958, the second chair he designed using a combination of solid wood and saddle leather forming the seat and back.

In the afternoon we visited design studio Space Copenhagen. The design duo consisting of Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou. They told us a bit about their visions, their design process and their experiences with designing the Swoon chair  and Spine collection that they’ve designed for Fredericia Furniture. In the evening we had an amazing dinner on Fredericia Furniture’s rooftop and made our own coocktail with the new Georg Jensen Sky bar collection.

July 27th – 30th I was invited to visit and photograph the stylish Marktgasse Hotel in Zürich in Switzerland. The newly renovated boutique hotel is located in a historic building from the 15th century in the charming old town of the city. The hotel has 39 individually furnished rooms and I was lucky to stay in a beyond beautiful room on the second floor with a lot of natural light streaming through the windows. I really felt at home met by the kind and helpsome staff in the combinated reception and lobby area. Many of the heritage elements have protected status and are carefully preserved, which bring a cozy atmosphere, personality and charm to the hotel. I love how the hotel has been choosing so much beautiful timeless and eclectic design interiors to the hotel which gives the place so much character. The hotel has a brasserie, a bar and a café where you can enjoy very delicious and healthy food or you can have a before drink in the Baltho bar. With easy access to cafes, muesums, historical monuments, shops and wine bars, one does not need to travel far to experience the joys of being in Zürich.

11 Howard, New York


This summer I had the great pleasure to visit and photograph the beautiful design hotel 11 Howard during my summer holiday in New York. With it’s very casual luxury, 11 Howard is destined to become a classic. This innovative hotel combines cutting – edge Scandinavian design with oicially conscious hyperlocalism. More than just an ideal vantage point for downtown exploration, the property is an art spectacle in itself and a community hub partnered with a range of local business and nonprofits. 11 Howard describes its raison d’être as “conscious hospitality”. This begins with the hotel’s design by Space Copenhagen, a Danish firm known for its out-of-the-ordninary approach to interior spaces. 11 Howard is Space’s first project of its kind in New York, and a true standout in the city’s hotel world, with an emphasis not just in form, but on long-term function. The design team has gutted a characterless structure, reinventing the interiors with a dose of Scandinavian minmalism. The rooms contain custom furniture and lightning by Danish brands Mads Raaschou and Gubi, with a few pieces by Sapce Copenhagen themselves, as well as the oak-plank floors with soft natural bamboo area rugs.


11 Howard has reinvented social spaces, making them multifunctional and moving them to the second floor, as true extensions of the guest rooms. With plentiful tables and chairs, The Library is an ideal place to work, meet, sip tea in the afternoon, or unwind with a cocktail in the evening.  The Library features the iconic Charlottenborg chair designed by Arne Jacobsen (Sika Design), Stay Sofa, Stay Lounge Chair by Gubii and other furnitures collected from around the world.


The Danish Oliver Gustav is a creative consulent with focus on aesthetic development, art, interior and exterior. His approach to interiors is artisanal and thoughtful. He creates spaces that convey a quite and yet dramatic atmosphere, where the stark and modern are contrasted against rare antique findsand exquisite curiosities. From his  gallery in New York which is placed at the same addrss as 11 Howard, Oliver Gustav offers unique and limited edition pieces , from carefully curated edit of international designers and artists.Howard-7

The rooms on 11 Howard features custom-made wall lamps by Gubi.


With arched windows facing Howard Street, 11 Howard’s bar and loung welcomes guests to work, mingle and relax. From lihtt and open to sensual and inviting, the bar’s ambiance transformers throughout the day. The blond is a stylsih place to kick off a night in new York, as dark woods, subdues colors, low lighting, and gold accents lend a seductive edge to the sapce, a bronze animal masks glint in the sahdows. The space features the Spine Lounge Petit by Space Copenhagen (Fredericia Furniture).


When it comes to dinning in New York, authenticity is everything. That’s why we enlisted the experitise of accomplished restaurateur  Stephen Starr to create an extraordinary dining etablishment on property. Le Coucou, a collaboration between Starr and internationally acclaimed chef/restaurateur daniel Rose of Spring and La Bourse et La Vie in Paris, is the consummate french experience. A menu of simple yet refined dishes reflects Rose’s personal version of French cuisine aimed a bringing great food and conviviality to the table. An exceptional list of wines and spirits, paired with the utmost of hospitality, takes dining at Le Coucou to the next level. Designed by Rowan and Williams, guests can enjoy a spectacular meal in the most charming of settings.
