Travel..... back in time!

Travel….. back in time!

Perfectly Art Deco

Perfectly Art Deco

I’m in love with 1920-1940’s art deco design and the Viceroy Hotel in Miami embodies this style perfectly. Kelly Wearstler has created the interiors brilliantly with an over flow of detailed, pastel and a Miami-ish twist to it. The Philipe Starck designed Spa is an added experience. I have never been to Miami and haven’t...

Aarhus – go for a weekend!

Article by Kathrine Werling My heart still belongs to Aarhus even though I haven’t lived there for almost 7 years. It is my home town and I am very proud of it! Aarhus has more than 250.000 inhabitants and is the second-largest city of Denmark. The “City of the Smile” has a lot to offer...

Skiing in Denmark?

Skiing in Denmark?

Incredible India - love it or hate it!

Incredible India – love it or hate it!

Article by Kathrine Werling In 2003 I had the pleasure of spending 4 months in Jaipur, India. From the first moment I was totally in love with this welcoming, beautiful, chaotic and overwhelming country. India is such a contrasting country, which inspires, frustrates and thrills me. It is a home for more than one billion...
