I travelled the world and I live abroad. Yet, inside I still wander wide-open landscapes of home, dreaming Nordic dreams. Along the foggy dream-coasts with sandy soils, I soak the smell of seaweed and spruce, while the salty air tickles my cheeks. Oh, over these blue waters, strong winds shall carry my Nordic dreams.
Yesterday afternoon we went to The Stray in Harrogate – chestnut hunting. He had a great time in the huge park! This 200 acres of open grassland and verges, wraps around the main urban ‘old town’ of Harrogate. The Stray exists for the people of the town and is a popular spot for picnicking, kite-flying, outdoor games and local football matches – as well as chestnut hunting!
My Spring 2015 wall art collection contains 12 unique handmade pieces. The inspiration comes from the Nordic scenery. The color palette is very simple, I have used neutrals only. Creme, black, brown – and grey melange. Added a hint of pastel pink, just for the fun of it. I use 100% wool or natural yarns for my artworks. You can check out the whole collection if you CLICK HERE. Thank you kindly.
OH SO BLUE, is my private atelier. I like to think of it as a Nordic cottage in an open landscape. Come in! I want to share it with you.
Sure, it’s a bit tiny but you will find it cosy and stuffed with creativity. What I do here? Anything that I enjoy. Just take a look. Here are photos, kids-stuff, fashion, design, books, accessories, food, wall art and architecture; There’s room for anything that inspires. In my atelier, I just let go, do things just for fun, mix it and add some magic dust – just to see what comes out of it. Handmade woven wall decorations, kids wear, fashion, unique accessories or whatever I feel for today.
Now, have a look around for yourself. Get inspired!
