As younger I applied for the design school but did not get in. I ended up as a nurse instead. How did it start? : It started somewhat by accident. I was talking one day with a friend who suggested the idea to me. She told me of a contact who could deliver all the vintage clothes I needed. And only a few months later I opened my shop! People have always encouraged me to do something like that and since there were so many reasons not to jump into it, I jumped. I’ve always had a passion for finding things at flea markets and I do it a lot. Í´m a collector. Does your children wear a lot of vintage? I enjoy putting them in vintage once in a while but I more often mix their clothes. www.vintagekids-cph.com 50 ★ HOME 51 FASHION ★ RETRO KIDS PHOTO BY MONICA BACH STYLING BARBARA Bennett 52 ★ FASHION 53 FASHION ★ 54 ★ FASHION 55 FASHION ★ 56 ★ FASHION 57 FASHION ★ 58 ★ FASHION ALL CLOTHING FROM RETRO KIDS, WWW.vintagekids-cph.com THANKS TO ANNE TINE FOR PROPS MODELS: VITUS, SOFIA AND BIANCA 59 SHOP WE ❤ DORA Dora is a Copenhagen based shop with lots of cool brands and products.

She is blogging about art, crafts, interiors, books and patterns. But also things from her every day life. The blog is very much about appreciating everyday life. About creativity and eye candy in different forms. Creative expressions outside cultural norms and the love for handmade things – folk art, outsider art and kid’s art. emmas.blogg.se Emma started this blog in 2005 when she was working as a styling assistant on an interior magazine. She shares inspiring photos from the world’s best stylists and photographers, all in a Scandinavian style. The focus is on interior styling and photography, rather than products. fridasfina.blogspot.com gathers inspiration, everyday images and everything nice in a blissful sprawling mix. Frida posts about her own daily life in Sweden renovating houses, interior design and her two children. It is all served in a very inspiring way. 102 ★ DESIGN BEST FRIEND Every child’s best friend. Besides being a travelling friend the comforting blankie doubles as a peekabo sheet, and offers different levels of pedagogical and playful interaction depending on the child’s age – peekaboo games for the smaller children, character and role play for the toddlers.
