All Things Borgen and Danish.

Borgen the Danish political TV Series is in it’s third and final series and has become a huge success alongside Danish interior design and architecture. Danish architecture has a long and fine history and world famous architectural buildings can be seen right across the globe. From the iconic Sydney Opera House designed  by Jørn Utzon to the world’s best residential house in 2011 designed by Bjarke Ingels for ’8 House’ in Copenhagen.

‘8 House’ has already won various prizes and was recently named as one of the most important buildings in the last decade by The Huffington Post.

Danish architect Bjarke Ingels also won the World Architecture Festival´s Housing Award in 2008 for his building ‘The Mountain’. His studio BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group) is today considered one of the leading companies in the field of innovative contemporary architecture with numerous architecture awards from all over the world to its name.

A little of what I like in terms of Interior Design.

Crisp, clean sharp lines combined with natural woods, soft greys and a splash of colour.  Pictures are always better to describe what I mean.

Take a look around Skandium, a Scandinavian department store based in London, showcasing  wonderful interiors and their fabulous designers.  On Sunday 1 December Republic of Fritz Hansen, (operated by Skandium), has a Winter Woodenland day between 11 and 5 with 15% off and mulled wine, treats and decoration making for the children.

Back to Borgen.

Must be my favourite thing on TV at the moment, it’s the only programme that I watch on my own,  such a treat, in fact I watched an episode during the day yesterday.   Don’t be put off the main theme that’s just a part of it there’s plenty of other stuff going on.  Quite racy in fact.

Tilslørede and Tak.
