A bunch of new things moved in over the holidays, some were gifts and some I bought myself. One of my readers, Teresa, spotted a new candle holder in this post last week and asked about it. I love that you guys can spot new additions! And I wasn’t trying to sneak anything past you, I just haven’t had time to blog about it – before now that is.

So the candle holder is by a British architect called Nicholas Oldroyd. The design was inspired by his move to Denmark where he discovered “hygge”, which we are world-famous for. Hygge doesn’t really translate into English. It is a warm cosy atmosphere and a warm, fuzzy feeling. It is enjoying the good things in life with good people around you. It often involves lots of food and candles. It is both a verb, an adjective and a feeling. The English equivalent “coziness” dosen’t even come close. Told you it was hard to translate! Anyway it is called Lysestage no.1 and I love the simplicity of it. I have the brass one. It comes in the most genius packaging I’ve seen and you can buy it right here.

I picked up this little Buddha (that you perhaps spotted in this post) in Thailand last month. I love to bring little souvenirs home from my trips around the world. I love how they stick out in my Scandi decor, yet blend in – and I love the reminders of past holidays. In my opinion it is these kinds of objects with personality that turns a house into a home. This reminds me I haven’t shared photos from the Thailand trip yet. I will soon!

Last but not least I have recently discovered scented candles. I never knew how wonderful they were – if you buy a decent one, that is. I had one too many cheap IKEA ones in mind and have always dreaded the damn things. Well not anymore. I love my lavender L:A Bruket one, and this Tom Dixon one, that I got for Christmas is no exception. It is called Water and the smell reminds me of the ocean and a nice cool breeze. Very refreshing.

That is it for today – happy Monday x

    I know what you mean about scented candles! I recently discovered the Scandinavisk brand, and I absolutely love both the design and the mild scents, especially the one called “Hav”, which I imagine is similar to your “Water” candle and smells like the ocean. Love your pictures!

      Thank you, Laura. I’m happy you like my photos :) And I agree – I really like Skandinavisk’s scented candles too, although I’ve never had one, only smelled them in the shops :)
