At the moment I’m enjoying the final night of my twenties- tomorrow it’s my 30th birthday, and I’m celebrating it in France with nine of the best people I know! Yay!! I’ll be back on sunday- until then have a great week and weekend!!
I´m not always a fan of concrete, but I like the work of Xiral Segard. The concrete pavement (PROTOTYPE PLAYTIME) with a graphic pattern is lovely, and the adjustable vase (VASE KONKURÏTO) is really cool. By removing layers, or stacking the the parts in different ways, you can adjust the height of the vase to fit different flowers – and you can also use it as a storage container with lid. With delicate shades of gray it is both practical and decorative.
I´m really not a “car person”, so you won´t find many post like this here. But; I appreciate good design. I love nostalgia. And the new Volkswagen Beetle is definitely cool! Of course, it´s not as quirky and cute as the original model. However, I like how they have managed to combine the retro feel, and the traditional charm and sweetness, with a more modern and sporty look. I think it actually works really well… It looks like a friendly and kindhearted car – but with an attitude!

The water-repellent coats from Norwegian designer Paola are so great! They come in six different models; my favorites are the ones printed with the traditional Norwegian “Marius” knitting pattern. I love that the fabric doesn’t feel like ordinary rain coats, it feels more like a regular light-weight jacket that can be worn in any kinds of weather.
Inside every garment there is a printed Paola calendar to highlight important issues, initiatives and projects, like World Cancer Day, Earth Hour and World Laughter Day.
