Happy Holidays

Merry christmas! I've never been busier than I've been for the last month, and therefore haven't made any posts for a whole month! Wow time has passed by so fast I can't even believe it! Christmas to me means a few days of holiday, but I promise I'll be back – hopefully rested and with new found inspiration for the new year! Meanwhile – Happy holidays!

Last week, Trine who runs the blog-concept "Blog-land", sent me an e-mail, telling me that she had recommended my blog on her platform. Since I've been a fan of Trines concept for a long time, I was very existed and happy that she had chosen to name mine among many other great blogs. Blog-land is a platform where Trine collects the best blogs in the blogsphere – gives them a review and recommend them to her readers. Blog-land is written in both danish and english, so there is absolutely no excuse not to go visit her page and dig into all the great blogs! Warning: you may get addicted!

I'm Instagram'ing

So finally I decided to get on Instagram – or actually I've been using instagram for more than a year and a half, but my account has been private and for personal use only. Last night I was with a girlfriend who finally made me take the jump and now you can follow me on instagram as well. So my instagram photos are from my private life and the categories will, unlike the blog, be more different and more personal – a mix of things I do, things I see, things I like and things that simply needs to be shared because I think so!
You can see my latest updates in the sidebar on this blog or follow me by my username: kberggreen!
See you on insta!

Zarah Voight window decoration

Yesterday when I was on my way home from the office I drove by danish jewellery designer Zarah Voigts boutique and noticed the beautiful window decoration. I'm a big fan of japanese origami and these oversized origami-frogs/beetles and different decorations in the window were so dramatic, I had to take a picture and share with you. (sorry for the bad iPhone picture) If you're nearby Gammel Mønt or Christian IX's gade in Copenhagen where her lovely boutique is located, you should definitely pass by and have a look!

Inspiration is everywhere

Over time I've bought a lot of books to find inspiration in graphic design and typography, but a completely free and just as inspiring thing to do, is to go outside and find your inspiration in the city. On my latest visit to Tivoli in Copenhagen, a very old and beautiful amusement park in the center of the city, I brought my camera and started noticing the typography – and all of a sudden it was everywhere. Have a look below. On my latest trip to NYC I did the same and took home more than 200 pictures for inspiration – I'll post (some of!!) them soon! So my advice for today is to go outside and start noticing all the design that surrounds you!

Mood of the day

I'm busy!
But I like this photo:

And this piece of music that I just heard for the first time today! Really relaxing!:

Hay collection

Nice pictures in a beautiful scenary from Hay with a couple of new products in their collection. I love the color combinations, especially the wood textures and the black as a contrast make the baby-blue stand out in a very cool way! I would love to paint a wall in that color, but I'm a bit afraid that it would look way too childish in my home!

Polyvore – a great tool for bloggers

I just discovered this site yesterday– Polyvore – and thought that it's a site worth sharing for all fellow bloggers out there. Personally I do most collages/photos in Photoshop, but I know that many find creating great collages and moodbards a bit more diffucult! And maybe I'll start using this site a bit more since my discovery!
Polyvore makes it easy for you to create collages with your favorite things – either you choose a template or you make your own – then you pick and drop the images you wish placed on the collage – either from a VERY big library connected to a lot of great designers in both fashion and interior – or by uploading images yourself. Click publish and you have a nice moodboard for your blog. You can also publish your moodboard directly to your blog which allow you to share the images/info and the text linked to the various items on your board.
(And no, this is not a sponsored post, I'm just very impressed by what a great tool I think it is! :) )

Sooo... To show you what I mean, I created this "moodboard" of what my own day looked like:

 First step: Pick a template (or make one yourself)

 Next step: Pick your items and drag them exactly where you want to place them! 

And Voila! Your personal moodboard! 

My moodboard is what I (more or less) looked like today and what I did.. 
I wore my new pair of Acne Clover Boots, 
a black A-skirt (with black tights since it's freeeezing), 
a black shirt (actually mine is with small white stars but I couldn't find it online anywhere), 
and a nice warm knit from Acne. Besides what I wore I had some lovely cups of lattes and last but 
not least I worked a lot (the computer)! 

MUSIC – The Paper Kites

Yesterday I stumpled upon the most amazing and relaxing music by The Paper Kites! I can't find them on iTunes or Spotify but you can hear some of their wonderful music below. Or you can find them on Myspace HERE. Have a nice day and enjoy the music!

Amazing Colors – by Jean-Francois Lepage

I came across these beautiful photographs by french photographer Jean-Francois Lepage, and especially I think this cold and mysterious color-scheme is totally amazing and very inspirational!

Friday wishlist

I'm totally in love with this beautiful copper box from Georg Jensen designed by Ilse Crawford. Actually I'm starting to fall for a lot of things made of copper – I think it's the combination of the industrial metallic material combined with the warmth of the red copper hue that draws me.
Anyways, this item is definetely on my friday wishlist. See more of the "Ilse" collection here.

Pink Packaging

You know you're a nerd – or at least a sucker for nice packaging – when you buy a product only because you like the way it looks! (– ok, and because it's in a bright pink color!) Nevertheless I couldn't resist this lovely body wash from Karmameju, a Danish therapeutic skincare brand. I had to take a picture since it  matches my box from Hay I decorated with pink tape.

Kitchen inspiration shot by Line Klein

I came across some of these wonderful pictures shot by danish photographer Line Klein over at Trendland. I'm totally into the pastel-block theme that is very popular these days, and I love the pictures below – these pictures are btw all kitchen-related. The last picture made me consider if I should paint the table surface in my own kitchen in a black color.. I'll get back to that one... 



With inspiration in traditional knitting-patterns I've made this set of 3 knit pattern postcards, to use for both decoration and as a card to write on. Personally I like giving a nice card when I give someone a present, and I think this black/white set will go well with a lot of different giftwrapping paper – maybe in some beautiful pastel colors? They're coming in the shop soon so stay tuned!

Effective weekend – Bedroom change

I've had a super effective weekend – besides a bit of work and some time to relax – Saturday I decided to paint a wall in my bedroom in (what luckely turned out to be) a very beautiful grey color! The other half of the saturday I build (yes BUILD) a headboard for my bed – something I've been meaning to do for a while! You can see a bit of the top of it on the picture below, but since I haven't hung it up yet you can't really see what I did – I'll make a DYI very soon!

Soooo.. since I loved the grey color soo much, Today (sunday), I decided to paint a wall in my living room with it as well, since I had bought way to much paint...
Lovely weekend, I'll bring some more photos of my latest projects soon, but now – relax!! Have a nice sunday!

 My new grey wall! 
Lamp – inherited from my grandmother and painted white / Bedside table – Kartell / 
Box from Hay (I decorated it with some neon pink tape), Headboard (the top of it) by myself / 
Grey wool pillows in the back by myself / Pillow in the front in the softest cashlama from Aiayu (former Aymara)

NEW POSTER - flying city

Some time ago I made this illustration (now named Flying city) - and now when I've opened my new webshop I'm considering producing and selling this as well...

Wednesday 19 September 2012


Not that it is very big news, but for me it is definetely something new, since I've decided to open my own small webshop. I've had a few people asking me if I sell some of the things I make, and well.. I've been wanting to do this for a while, so now's the time! My first product will be some simple but very decorative black/white Diamond Posters, but I'm working on a few other posters and cards as we speak!

Yesterday I went to my favorite printing house and had them run some test-prints of the Diamond Posters I've shown in an earlier post. While deciding which paper I want them printed on, I might as well show you the prints which I spent today framing in simple white frames, and then took some pictures from around my apartment.  

Hope they'll be well recieved!
Stay tuned :)

A quick snap (or two) from my working space from home today with homemade cinnamon buns and magazine inspiration. Can't wait to show what I've been working on lately (among others)... more to come!

My home office today with various magazines and books, notebooks, iPhone cover from DanniJo,
