A charming country home with style north of Copenhagen

One place we didn't visit on my travels, but is still very much on my travel wish list, is Copenhagen. I'm sure the architecture and shops would be right up my alley. Has anyone been to Copenhagen? What did you think?

The natural light in this home is great - also the architectural details like the radiator cover and top window pane.




I'm a sucker for detail shots :)




The look of all those books in the bedroom is really nice - but I'd be afraid I'd stay up too late each night reading.









This little spot in the yard is wonderfully wabi sabi no?

What do you think of this home? Close to your style?

I'm back from Europe - with a book giveaway!!

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to be able to post on a regular basis again! The trip was absolutely amazing and I promise to share pictures of my boyfriend and my 9 week journey - but first I have to do some photo organizing. I thought I'd welcome everyone back with a book giveaway, Mark Montano's "Big-Ass Book of Home Decor." You can see samples of the book in my review post from May. To enter the giveaway just leave a comment telling me your favorite place (city, country, etc.) you've ever traveled, and why if you wish. Or you can email me your favorite place. The giveaway will be closed next Tuesday at 12am EST. Good luck!

And now, to warm up a bit - I thought I'd just publish some good old Decorology-style eye-candy. It's great to be back!

Hello from Berlin! More pictures from my Europe trip

The pictures below are from the beautiful Picos de Europa, in Spain. My favorite part was probably getting to take in the beautiful views alongside the cows that graze the mountain tops.





The traffic jams were caused by livestock



One of the most amazing parts of being on this mountain top valley was the chorus of cowbells you could hear all around you. The sheperd´s huts were really amazing as well!

Me just enjoying the view alongside a friendly local
