A bit about yourself:

Idea generator and founder of monsterscircus.

Gifted with an innate passion for interior design and a persistent sense/ craving for creative adventures.

Where you live and who you live with:

Living with my husband and our Frenchie in Denmark.

Favourite/coolest item in your home:

My glass cabinet isn’t only a standout but is perfect to display all of my favourite objects, plants or art.

To me, it’s a distinctly feminine piece of furniture and a nice addition to the bar carts.

Fail-safe decorating trick:

Embrace your inner creative and go for a high-low look. Blend flea finds and high street buys with good quality.

First thing you though of this morning:

I’m at the very beginning with yoga and so excited with my development into becoming a yogi. So ease is my keyword every morning. 30 minutes of yoga and then a cup of matcha.

A talent you wish you had:

I fancy classic music a lot, so to play a simple tune on the violin is on my bucket list.

Advice to your younger self:

Don’t be afraid to fail or stand out from the crowd, it’s each fresh beginning and life experience that broaden your perspective.

Favourite band of all times:

Bloc Party

Your style icon:

Independent and grounded people who embraces differences. People who know how to keep their eyes on the prize and follow their passion.

Favourite /least favourite colour:

Favourite: Grey is so versatile and looks good with almost any colour.

Least favourite: Orange, but it’s growing on me lately.

Best way to de-compress:

100% unplugged, all electronic devices turned off and a walk outside.

A superpower you wish you had:

Time control – would love to pause time and get even more creative projects done - or go back in time and experience the creative process of some of the world’s coolest inventions

Cats or Dogs:

Dogs. Love to see our dog waltzing around the garden, love each morning stroll and his zeal for life is so contagious.
