Over the last 2 years, we have been renovating our house and the last project was to make a new 1st. floor and new rooms for my two girls. There are less than 2 years between Liv and Stella, so they have always shared everything but now, the oldest has started school and they begin to have more seperate worlds, interests and friends....therefor, we decided to give them their own room as well. Liv is 6,5 years old and a true school girl now and spents time at her desk and in her sofa bed. She wanted colors such as dark puple, soft pink and black with a romantic touch and I think we managed quite well. Her room has just been featured in the latest issue of the Danish online magazine Keiki magazine, please take a look.

With my kids, we love visiting this fairly new concept of street food, located in an old warehouse on the Paper Island. This is colorful and cheap street food market with food stands from all over the world and the greatest thing is, you don't have to eat the same. Everyone picks his or hers dish and gather around a table. The market is perfectly located in the centre of Copenhagen with a spendid view to Copenhagen Opera house and the Royal Playhouse. The Paper island is also located right next to the science museum Experimentarium City which is also a great place to visit with kids. Take the metro to Christianshavn and walk 10 minutes or you can go there by boat.
