Filming In My Work Studio Today

Hello everyone! I’ve had such a fun day so far so I have to share it with you! This morning a film team came from Berlin to shoot a video in my work studio and in one of my favorite Hannover shops, Raumformplan, owned by lovely Janin. The film is for the Myself magazine (a Conde Nast publication) Liebling Awards in which I was nominated – it’s a very exciting honor and next week I’ll fly to Munich to attend their red carpet event and awards ceremony to see who will win. I’m so excited about it!

The film was for them to share at the show – very fun! In the shop I had to pretend I was interested in some Ferm Living pillows and in my work studio I was pretending to be writing and blogging — oh and of course working on a mood board on my table! It was lovely to work with producer Lutz Winde, camera man Sebastian Woithe and makeup artist Miriam Spiegel.

Yes I have two desks in my work room and huge, long white conference table in the middle of the room. It’s a great space to teach, lay out projects and have a guest come work for the day.

I loved every minute of working with these lovely people today – we got through everything quickly and laughed a lot. I also gained three new friends from it – which made me even happier because I love making new friends in Germany – makes living here that much sweeter. Above are some outtakes of me at my desk in my hot pink tights and grey dress from kew159 in London. The other photo is of me and the crew in my work studio. I had such a great time, it felt good to be famous for minute. :)

Thank you Janin at Raumforplan for letting us use your shop and thanks to Miriam, Lutz and Sebastian for such a great time!

    Good luck! It looks like you had fun!

    I’m really curious about the Liebling Awards and a search yielded very little information–what are they for? I’m curious because my great-grandparents were born in a tiny town on the Danube called Liebling. It was actually in present-day Romania, but the town itself was German.

    Curiosity aside, your studio is gorgeous! I love that minty green lamp.

    Love your blog & book–read them often and they are incredibly inspiring. but these photos are so nice & lovely! I like to see photos of people’s real homes. I esp. love those ikea drawers you show in one pic (and i remember you showed them once before) and I can’t find them on the web site. I have seen them in the store once but now I”m thinking they might fit in my house….would you mind giving me the name if you know?

    …..and I’m getting linen today to make your lovely, simple mood board! absolutely love that!! thank you for showing how to make it!

    Hello! LOVELY Studio! I am thrilled to be able to see where you work each day. It’s very inspiring. One thing I was particularly interested in was your white writing desk. I like it very much and was wondering where you purchased it? I’ve been searching for one similar. It’s really nice. Thanks for sharing!
