Elsk Dit Hjem: New Book

I just learned about a new book from Denmark that I must get my hands on, it’s called Elsk Dit Hjem which I think translates to Love Your Home in English. It was recently released and the author, Ranvita la Cour, is a Feng Shui expert, stylist and freelance writer from Copenhagen and one half of the duo behind Happy Living. Here’s a peek of her new book…

I’m hoping that someday I will get to meet Ranvita at a home show or something, as she’s just north of me living in Hellebæk, Denmark and I’m dying to meet the movers and the shakers in the design world over here and Ranvita seems to be quite an “it” girl in Denmark. I just learned about this book today via Spagat (thanks, Sidsel!) so I will now go off on the great hunt to locate a copy of this book online…

    I’m dying when I see white lamps like this! Where, oh where do they all come frome?
    The books seems to be pretty georgeous, too, it’s almost too bright for a Scandi design book :)

    The book can be bought here – they ship to USA via UPS – not sure about the shipping cost though.

    Otherwise I think you should email the publisher and ask if it will be on Amazon soon or published in English – It´s really well written and full og wonderful tips which would be a pity to miss out on.
