Designer Fish

The latest craze for your aquarium, glow in the dark fish. Developed by Taiwanese scientists, cool but is it right to design living creatures to look more beautiful?

Anyways I quite like them!

New bag or chair?

I really want this lovely black leather bag from Ceannis, available at Palma. Anyone want to buy me one? And I don't mind the denim chair either. If you are at Skøyen pop into the lovely new Palma shop, well worth the trip.

Moving in time

As we are doing research for our new flat we just bought, I thought that some of these fantastic wall clocks could find their way to our new walls. The first one is a 50s Electric clock, available at Graham and Green, the collection of clocks is from Anthropologie. Both are well worth a visit next time you are in London, or visit their web shops!

A new landmark in Oslo

The opera house in Oslo is like an iceberg that has docked in the fjord. It is a living architectural monument that can be walked through and on top of. It is a masterpiece by the Norwegian studio Snøhetta.

I just love these fantastic pictures that actually give you a feeling of how incredible the building is and how dynamic its appearances are. The building is an ever changing experience as it changes with the light quality of the season and the time of day.

Norwegian woods

I just love this landscape Hotel where the limits between the Norwegian woods, the architecture and the interior are blurred together. You are one with nature even if you are inside your room, with panorama breathtaking views that are ever changing depending on the weather, the time of the day and the different seasons. As well as rooms it also includes a Spa in the seven cubes raised on pillars .

This is definitively a place to bring friends and family from abroad to show them a little piece of Norway. Situated in the middle of Norway.

Architecture for your skin or your bathroom shelf!

Who said that a perfume bottle or a bottle of cream cant be an piece of architecture itself? You can clearly see the link between the packaging of luxury items and luxury clothing or buildings. If I am to buy one of these products I just need a nice black bathroom with black mosaics and golden taps and soft Egyptian towels to go with it.

Bathroom wishlist: Taps from Italian Newform, Tiles from Fired Earth, Scent Sticks from Voluspa, beautiful perfume bottle from Gucci, Firming lotion and black nail varnish from Chanel.

Happy 2010

A new year with new possibilities! We are a week in to the New Year, and I have not yet exercised, or been blogging yet before today. I have not bought a flat yet. But that is all going to change this year. I wish you all a very Happy New Blog Year!
