Rie Elise Larsen

November 23, 2011

I always feel a surge of energy whenever I visit the website of Danish designer Rie Elise Larsen. Her work fills me with ideas and I always feel more creative whenever I visit her site for a browse. It’s fun to see what she’s up to and her current collection is just gorgeous. I love the zing of fresh green, neon pink, hot orange and the other crisp brights. I also like seeing pastels with graphic black and white. Perfection!

I found a video (below) of this talented lady showing how to make a fun ‘Julekugler’.

I love watching people make things, don’t you? I’m a huge fan of her work and a customer, I have some lamps, cloth cords and ornaments from her that I purchased at local shop Sommerfugl owned by my good friend Daniela. Isn’t Rie Elise Larsen such an inspiring creator? I think so!

    That video is terrific! I have been thinking of doing our tree in homemade ornaments this year, maybe all of our Christmas decorations. These would be great! I think my ten-year-old daughter and I could make them together. There’s something nice about a handmade Christmas :-) Thanks for posting!

    I simply adore every single one of her creations! At one point I was on a man hunt to find some of her items for sale in the U.S. but had much disappointment. What I did find throughout Europe was great, but the shipping cost was outrageous. Here’s to hoping some of her items make it across the Atlantic. =)

    Oh Holly, I’m a huge fan, too. But finding her products in Australia seems impossible and the freight from Europe too costly. Sigh. J x

    Love her designs! I’ve already downloaded a few paper patterns and can’t wait to use one for renovating my chest of drawers. It’s so hard to find interesting patterns that aren’t extortionate and these are free, so even better! Thanks for sharing xx

    What a brilliant video. Thanks so much for sharing. I didn’t k ow her so will check out more of her stuff now.


  • Reply Juliette November 24, 2011 at 8:34 am

    I love her stuff! There’s a shop down in Bamberg that carries a large selection of her products and it’s just as fun to see them all grouped together as it is to have one piece in your home. What a fun video find, too!

    This was very inspiring indeed! I love the geometric patterns and pops of color against the muted backdrop of grays, black, and white! The papers make me want to dust off my book of orgami and get crafty! Great post! :) xo

    I love looking at people making stuff, more than going to a dance gala :) There is something magical about christmas balls, and I definitely love the christmas tree with all the pines..

    I like this style very much. So colorful and vibrant. The mix of black and white with a few stand out colors is captivating, but the use of neon colors makes it stand out even more so. Great works of art. Thank you for sharing.

    “crisp” and “zingy” are perfect adjectives for her work! Very pretty
