A Bouquet of Flowers unfolds by Le Klint

Advertisement

Jeg har fornylig været heldig at få lov til at style og fototgrafere Le Klints The Bouquet der blev lanceret i foråret . Da jeg for første gang så denne smukke, unikke og elegante lampe, var min første tanke at den bare ville passe helt perfekt over mit spisebord. Med dens poetiske formsprog der er inspireret af tulipanens naturlige bløde buer hænger den som en smuk organisk blomsterskulptur over mit spisebord. Jeg synes at lampen med sine fem bedårende tulipanhoveder giver en fin kontrast til mit spisebord der er lavet i massivt egetræ. The Bouquet har inspireret mig til at dække mit spisebord med keramik i sarte pasteller og lette sommerbuketter. Med sit bløde lys skaber The Bouquet de skønneste rammer for en en hyggelig aften sammen med familie og venner.

The Bouquet er designet af Sinja Svarrer Damkjær i 2019. Lampens skærme er smukt foldet i hånden i Le Klints produktion i Odense. Ligedes er lampens ledninger fint betrukket med rustikt hørtekstil der skaber et blødt udtryk på lampen. Fletningerne giver på en fin måde mulighed for at arrangere skærmene så man kan kreere buketten af tulipaner, præcis som man ønsker den. Ligeledes kan man justere hvor højt lampen skal placeres over bordet. En anden flot detalje på lampen er holderen på den enkelte skærm der er lavet af egetræ.

Casa Modesta, Algarve, Portugal

Last year I had the most amazing time staying at the beautiful Casa Modesta. Set on the edge of the Ria Formosa Nature Park in the Algarve, southern Portugal. Casa Modesta is a rural retreat with sustainable design and architecture. Named by owner Carlos Fernandes after his mother, Modesta Maria, and developed among acres of almond and olive orchards at the site of his ancestral family home.

It’s designed by the owner’s sister Vania from the local architectural firm Par with sustainable design. The floors are lined with red limestone clay tiles, with stylish brass fittings and cedar furnishings in each h of the nine suites. The bathrooms are seporated from the bedrooms by white sliding doors, with brass kickboards that match the fitting. Tubs are submerged into the floors. All have a patio or a roof terrace overlooking the surrounding beautiful blue lagoon. There are also two public rooms, a kitchen and a swimming pool.

I got so warm welcome by the owner Carlos when I arrive and all the staff was so helpsome. I really felt home far away fom home at this cozy place with such a warm atmosphere.

A highlight of the day is the delicious homemade breakfast they served made of organic produce from their own garden or from the local area.
