Christina Lundsteen: Pillow Heaven
I was able to spend a brief window this past weekend catching up on some magazines I've been meaning to read when I came across the gorgeous apartment of Danish pillow designer Christina Lundsteen in the January 09 issue of German Living & More magazine. Here is one image from Christina's home, can you imagine living like this? The issue is packed with more -- if I had a scanner I'd show you some because it's an absolute stunner. One of those homes you imagine moving right into, curling up on the sofa, and dreaming about your last vacation where you found those lovely frames at that flea market or the amazing jugs from the bazaar. In this image below I can't stop staring at the door leaning against the wall in that stunning blue and what appears to be the most unique coffee table I've seen in quite some time. Isn't the petite chandelier and the pretty ceiling medallion a nice touch too?
Combining antique textiles in a fresh and interesting way, Christina's designs really speak to me and I love seeing them in situ in a home environment because I think that you can see just how pretty they really are versus a simple Photoshop view against a white background. Since they are all one-of-a-kind you may not be able to find the exact prints and patterns shown above but many are currently available online at a beautiful Danish home store called Anker Living. AL ships outside of Denmark to the rest of the EU and the world, and speaks Danish, English and German so you should be in good hands should feel like placing an order. I suggest ordering the pillow covers (if they do in fact zip off, I'd assume yes) and buy the inserts locally to save on shipping. Email: ankerliving AT ankerliving.dk for more information please.
Don't forget to visit the photographers websites below who took these photos - each of their portfolios is packed with stunning things that you won't want to miss out on. I tried to locate a website or agent for the stylist, Bolette Kiær, who arranged the first photo without any luck. If you have her web address kindly leave it in the comments section and I'll gladly edit this post and add it in later.
