For Christmas I was lucky enough to get a Nikon digital SLR camera. I loved my Nikon Coolpix but was getting frustrated with it in the Winter months as all my pics were coming out dark.

One of my aims this year is to get better at setting up shots, and photography in general. Along the journey to come I want to share with you some of my favourite inspirational pics that I find from photographers and stylists.

First up is Paul Lowe, a prop stylist with Vivian Artists. He was born in Oslo, Norway and currently lives in Brookyln, New York. He has been working in the industry for 17 years after being introduced to styling by a photographer friend. He is inspired by the love of creating beautiful works and his favourite projects are those that are the complete package from planning, props, food styling and everything else in between.

I love Paul's styling as I find it very sweet, delicate and charming and it's very clean and simple in approach.

Have a sweet day!

House Doctor was formed in 1999 by two sisters, Rikke Juhl Jensen and Gitte Juhl Capel, along with their brother, Klaus Juhl Pedersen. The product range is very wide, ranging from kitchen utensils, vases and furniture to an exclusive assortment of interior design accessories. Their online catalogue is a dream to flick through for it is beautifully styled and shot, my favourites being the open shelving in the kitchen and that large glass jar full of ribbons.

Following on from yesterday's post about Danish Interiors, first on my list is DAY Birger et Mikkelsen, one of the first Danish brands to really make its mark on the international fashion scene.

This innovative Danish brand was created in 1997 by Keld Mikkelsen and Malene Birger with the sole aim of creating exquisite design. Using the inspiration of the ethnic cultures of Asia as a starting point, the label infuses each piece with the sumptuous feel of vintage glamor and playful personality. They are easy-to-wear but supremely feminine pieces, which come alive with sprinklings of embellishment. This bohemian yet modern approach to Scandinavian simplicity has heavily influenced their home collection.

Although their clothing can be found in many stores throughout the UK their interior stuff is a little harder to find. So, it will be a real treat visiting their flagship store.

Check out my Copenhagen Interior shops map for location.

All week I will be posting some more of my favourite Danish brands.

Have a sweet day!

Hello 2010!

Hello lovely readers! Thank you SO much for your New Year wishes.

2009 was a year of creativity for me. I first posted some of my photos on Flickr in February and, fueled by the sweet comments I was getting, I started taking more and more! My Flickr account now has nearly 500 pics and has had over 75,000 views!

I started this blog in order to share where I bought some of the items in my photos, or how I went about making them. I've also been able to share some of the wonderful things I've found, whether it's an amazing artist, a brilliant photographer, or a new boutique or brand.

Some of my personal favourites from 2009 were:

Easter Mosaic
Easter Decorating



Finding the wonderful Illustrations by Matilou



Getting pretty with candy


Pretty 2009
Pretty baking, completing my laundry tin, and the "Rooster Party"!

You guys are amazing and have been so sweet and kind to me, helping me to push my creativity to the limits. Along the way, I've also discovered some of the most beautiful, funny and inspiring blogs.

I am buzzing with excitement for the possibilities in 2010, especially since Santa brought me a Nikon DSLR camera for Christmas!

I wish you all a New Year filled with love, laughter, health, and creativity!
