DESIGN LOVERS TO DENMARK

Week-ends are always great but they pass so quickly you hardly feel you had a real break. That is why Kerem and I love to go somewhere close for a long week-end. We usually explore Turkey or go to Europe — our last destination was Copenhagen. I had always wanted to go there because I am crazy about nordic design: simple lines, lots of whites, …

LOS ANGELES, MY SECOND HOME

I have been to Los Angeles before I met Kerem, but of course it is completely different once you visit with a local.

After my divorce three years ago, I decided it was time …

What you feel is unrestricted freedom. It had been a while we had met with my two sisters. It was Caroline’s idea. She asked Nathalie and me if we would be interested in horse riding …
