Book Review: Kunst & Karisma - THE book of 2011!

The second book in the Visit Visit series is out, and I have to admit, I'm as excited as I was the last time! The series focuses on high quality homes from Scandinavia, most from Denmark. They carefully choose the homes they share, and in Kunst & Karisma we get to peek into eight homes. 

All incredibly chic in their own, personal way. More than a couple work in the fashion industry, and I love how it

The owners of this stunning home, Lars & Camilla, both work in the fashion industry. Camilla is a shop owner and Lars as an agent.

Their home is filled to the RIM with chic, one of a kind pieces from across the world. 

 The book has dedicated 24 pages to this glamorous grunge home, and you also get sneak peeks into their equally chic store & show room.

The home of Karina Harboe and Jørgen Laursen, (also works in the fashion industry) is ridiculously chic, and very very me :) The color palette is a mix of pastels and neons combined with lots of white, and it's done in a really refined and elegant manner. You get 16 pages with some serious eye candy from this home :)

18 pages of white elegance, with a few interesting details in black and brown. As you all know, white is so not my thing, but there's just something about this home. I love, love, love the white glossy floors, the high ceilings and of course, all of the office details. Signe Bøgelund-Jensen is another fashion industry insider :)

Oliver Gustav runs a crazy chic antiques shop in Cph, called Oliver Gustav (of course; ;)). You seriously can't miss out on this home, this sneak peek is just the beginning, the craziness continues, and evolves. He has an (almost) full sized giraffe in the living room! AND a palm tree. It's crazy, wonderful and  one of a kind. LOVE IT!!

This.home.is.AMAZING!!! Every room is a new experience and adventure you don't want to miss out on  this one either! The owners are Mette Rode Sundstrøm and Bengt Sundstrøm - CEO and director of the board of Lauritz.com and let me tell you - they don't disappoint. 

The couple have a complicated and advanced color palette, this is not for beginners! Even though the colors appear to be completely different, they have tied them together in a way that makes perfect harmony.

The living room could have been in a completely different house, but that's one of the thing I like about it. It's like a box of chocolates, where every single chocolate has a different flavor. They're different, but complete each other, and make the other ones taste even better. 

Iben and Niels - THANK you for making ANOTHER fantastic book about Scandinavian design!

Want to know where you can get a copy?

Scandinavians, you can get your copy directly from the publisher, Home Sweet Home Books. It's dkr 299,-

International buyers can get their copy at Amazon. As a bonus, you get it with a booklet with English text, so nothing will be lost in translation :) (you can also download the booklet here)

I have to say, this is probably one of my favorite design books in a long, long time (and I read a lot of them!)

Happy Tuesday!!

Even added difficult to chanel replica ascertain are what is frequently referred to as "frankenwatches." These timepieces,which cover Citizens,are accumulated from apparatus of different watch brands.The Rolex Oyster Perpetual is a archetypal watch that never goes out of style.This is a time section that has been to the acme of Mount Everest,sunk into replica watches the Pacific Ocean and broiled to 500 degrees F,and it still looked and performed great.Retail amount for a Rolex is $5,000 to $10,000,so bethink the adage,"You get what you pay for" if your acquaintance tells you he can get you one for just $1,000.One of the a lot of affecting realities about online replica handbags is louis vuitton replica that they are alleged as the affluence artist replica handbags.Replica handbags or actor handbags appeal is ascent these canicule maybe because the abridgement is still down or there are abounding barter that do not wish to absorb their money on cher affluence artist brands.Today,these kinds of handbags can be begin just gucci replica about anywhere there are even accessible in beating off food and arrangement stores.Surely,replica handbags attending like the 18-carat designs of affluence accoutrements that they wish to archetype or imitate.The decidedly cheaper amount of actor accoutrements is usually one of the affidavit why there are abounding humans abnormally the women buy them.Anyway,some replica handbags are superior backpack and a lot of of them are able-bodied fabricated and actor the attending of the branded ones.
