    I have a confession to make here Michele.

    When I started writing, one of my earliest assignment was product copies for 'Royal Copenhagen' for CSN stores, of which I need not give you any introduction- you are from the US.

    Well, Guess what? I clicked on the Nordic Design's Christmas magazine and on page 9 I found the same fluted cake stand from Royal Copenhagen about which I wrote almost 4 years ago, as their top pick.

    I'll send you across the descriptions I wrote for them. It was featured too.

    Feeling so damn nostalgic. 🙂

    Oh…I found it. Here's one for Royal Copenhagen's Royal Whites collection 🙂

    There’s something about snowy white porcelain that steal hearts, and it’s as indescribable as the enthralling quality of gold. The Danes fell in love with the glazy white porcelain from China and strove to master the art of making “white gold”. Now, it’s time for you to fall in love with the fine Danish porcelain mantle-pieces brought to you by Royal Copenhagen.

    Royal, regal and beautiful, the “Royal White” collection is all about beauty and timelessness. Let falling in love continue.

    Im sorry, I'm taking the commenting bandwidth today! Just wanted you to know how happy Im feeling.

    It all looks very serene and peaceful, I would be happy there!

    i would be happy here too, debra! and it's sort of tough to steal ideas from this home because the whole point is that effortless 'undecorated' vibe. i like these spaces that make me want to stare and soak up the vibe for inspiration.

    how cool, roy!!!!! how fun is writing dreamy descriptions for royal copenhagen! dude!

    meghan–you will have to share the space with me and penny. deal?

    Great minds think alike… loving the Nordic design! I love how all these genres work effortlessly together – it's eye-candy.

    Loving a little nordic norwegian tonight! Love the simplicity & comfort of her home. The structure (house) speaks for itself. So much rustic planked prettiness. Thanks for the sweet comment on my clay tags. I didn't know that stars were all the rage in Europe right now! xo Jami

    Now that is just what a stressed Swedish heart needed! Oh so calming. Oh so fresh. Oh so not contrived.

    Will call you before we head to CA. Busy, busy over here…Sold 3 necklaces – thanks to my pretty model! (:

    Warm hugs, Mon

    First of all – that chandelier in the first pic. OH. MY. GOD. Dying in it's glory.

    The whole place is just so warm, so cozy, so utterly utterly enchanting. How do people do this?? How do they get it so right but so relaxed at the same time? Surely this is something you are born with?

    Sigh.

    One last alliteration for you…

    Woozy with wonder…!
