Romantic Greeting Cards Temps Perdu


{Greeting card from Temps Perdu by Natascha Boel}

The last three weeks I have spent way to much time behind my computer...so it was fun making some images today...and although I'm totally not a good photographer and sometimes I'm scared I will only do harm to what has been given to me as a review, but I do like to make them, because it makes me understand the artwork that I see so much more interesting for me, you notice the small details much better and understand how much care and passion has gone into each creation...


...for instance these amazing greeting cards from Dutch designer Natascha Boel...they are not just some greetings cards, they are really small pieces of art. Natascha created nine small peek-a-boo-boxes with miniature still lives in it, every box tells it's own story and later she photographed them, and used the images for her new collection of cards...The Wedding, Birth, Moving House, Party, Gett Well are some of the titles. They are printed both sides and are the best greeting cards I have seen in a very long time...Gorgeous!!

Let's Get Personal in Copenhagen with MisseMai


DesignHome MisseMai unRaveled :: answers by Mia-Louise


D:: Danish is...a very difficult language  to learn. Snowy cosy winters and a bright cheerful spring and the country where my beautiful son was born.


A:: Art I like to buy...is mostly illustrative work or very textured bold pieces like Mark Rothko's amazing work.


N:: New in my home is...a lot of wonderful wedding gifts (I got married 2 weeks ago), a nice little blue Royal Copenhagen ceramic frog and a bunch of Swarovski penguins.


I:: Imagine, I could live in a different place or home, where or what kind of home would it be...difficult to say.. I do love  our home very much. Could swop it for a town house in Notting Hill though..

S:: Snack, my favorite Danish snack is...scraped raw beef on rye bread with onions, beet roots, raw egg, and fresh horse radish.

H:: Home means to me...the place where my husband and son play with the dogs, an ever changing pad always tempting me to start a new interior project as well as a huge comfort zone for me. 


H:: hobby, I always make time for...reading books while drinking sweetened white coffee and  dog walking by the beach.

O:: outfit, my favorite thing to wear is...my wedding band.


M:: magazines I love to read are...Vogue Living, Rum, Marie Claire Maison, Cover, Vogue Paris, Lula.


E:: enjoy, I can't live without...my Studio, MisseMai Prints, my family and the dogs, sweetened white coffee, praline chocolate, textile design, creativity and my wonderful friends.

............Thank You Mia-Louise...............


MisseMai Prints is a design studio located in a corner of Copenhagen founded by Mia-Louise Mailund... a lot of the gorgeous black and white prints are influenced by Danish writer H.C.Andersen’s love story ”The Snow Queen”... i really love the prints on the striped bedding, which is nice for children but also for grown-ups like me :) ... I haven't decided yet which print is my favorite, too hard to choose...but I think this Flax print is really cute and what is there not to like about the Deer.. Bodieandfou

And an image from the home of Bodie and Fou over at Decor8 with a print from MisseMai hanging in their room...you see how gorgeous!
