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 heard from Yasmine Surovec this afternoon, the talented editor, designer and illustrator of the new Parasol Craft Magazine and author of A Print A Day (the decor8 blog of the week). Parasol Craft is an inspiring new magazine that you can download and is dedicated to showcasing handmade products and features freebies, too! The primary focus is to promote and inspire creativity… here’s but a peek…
Have you heard of either of these two creative spots online? I hadn’t until today, so I’ve been busily perusing Yasmine’s lovely pages for the past half hour. Gorgeous, I highly recommend picking up the current copy of Parasol Craft — it’s lovely!
Thanks for writing in, Yasmine!

If you’re a fan of Aussie fashion mag Frankie like I am, you’ll be happy to know that those of us outside of Australia can download Frankie issues from their website. Yay! I did not know about this until recently when one of the editors let me know via a tweet. Of course, there’s a fee involved for each issue, but if you love the magazine you’ll no doubt have little problem shelling out the cash for your own personal copy to support it. Though I’m a bigger fan of the hard copy over the electronic because I’m old school and since I fear more and more mags may fold for good, I think that when magazines want to reach out to a broader, international market that it’s wise of them to have electronic versions available.
I guess in the end if I cannot have a hard copy of Frankie I guess an e-version will have to do… :) Find out more information on how to get your hands on these here.

Editor’s Note: I’m heading out for the day to finish some pre-move errands (we leave our house Saturday morning – eek!) so if you’ve emailed and I haven’t gotten back to you I’m sorry – it’s best to tweet me at this point as I’m not glued to my laptop day and night as I usually am — but I do carry my trusty iPod Touch with me so I can answer your tweets if you send them to @decor8. Also, there will be no Musical Thursday this week simply because I don’t have time to write it — but I’ll say this — the 500 Days of Summer CD is great so be sure to check it out!

I received an email last week from Utterly Engaged and totally forgot to post about them — so this post is long overdue. Have you heard of this wedding e-zine? It’s so inspiring, whether you are engaged or not it’s like Martha Stewart Weddings — you don’t need to be walking down the aisle to appreciate the beauty of it and draw inspiration from its pages.
Utterly Engaged is a lovely e-publication, you can flip through it online and enjoy it 24/7, I spent some time on Sunday flipping around and here are some of my favorite images from it. I hope you visit them online and see for yourself, it’s so charming!
