Nedre Foss

I discovered the Norwegian design company Nedre Foss a couple years ago and have loved their designs since. The notion of “The Century Object”, an object that will serve you for at least a hundred years, is in the core of the company and sits very well with my decorating philosophy as well. It also happens that the majestic cast iron candle holders “Ildhane” and “Glo” are designed by my favourite Norwegian designers Andersen & Voll. There’s something about cast iron that I love as a material. The heaviness makes it feel like a substantial object and fits any decorating style perfectly.

Sirkel” tealight holder is made from solid coloured glass. The intensity of the colour changes with the thickness of the glass. I love the way light shines through these tealight holders; they are beautiful on their own or grouped together. The colours are gorgeous and intense, something you can only achieve with a solid coloured glass.

Now that the days are getting shorter here in Sydney, I know I’ll be enjoying these candle holders every night. Thank you Nedre Foss for sending me these gifts. All opinions, as always, are my own.

Introducing Gejst

Fridays tend to be super busy. I always take on too many projects and ambitiously think I can finish them all. From catching up on emails to chores at home, sneaking in a long overdue hair appointment or a quick coffee date with a friend, it all happens on Fridays. Even though I like to think I’m an organised person (those who know me might or might not agree), things do go missing (the keys, the phone, my daughter’s hair elastics). For a while I’ve been on the hunt for a perfect storage system that would host the most important of daily essentials. Most of the storage options I’ve found have been way too bulky or just not right for our apartment, so when I came across the Flex system by a Danish brand Gejst, I immediately knew it would work.

Flex is a multi functional storage shelf with fully interchangeable components. The stylish timber hides an extremely powerful magnet that allows the elements to be placed just where you want them. You can choose from a variety of elements to compose a storage system that is perfect for you. I love how versatile the shelf is; I can see it working in any room of our apartment.

Hope your Friday will be a little smoother than mine – and have a great weekend!
