Malene Birger's Life In Pictures

My current obsession is the book, Life and Work by teNeues.  I picked it up yesterday and can not stop flipping through the pages!  I love a nice hefty coffee table book filled with lots of pretty things and inspiration.  The photographs of Malene's homes and work spaces are perfection along with the details and layout.  Birger is an extremely talented fashion designer, but also a gifted interior designer as well as a painter.  She has an eye for details and quality.  I couldn't help but photograph some pages in the book to share with you all.  Along the way I've included some of Malene Birger quotes that are beautifully incorporated in the book.  Enjoy!  Oh, and happy Friday!

                                                                                   movement is the only permanent phase in our lives
 life without change
 is a life without development, new challenges or
                                                   I don't have a storage room-
                                                          everything in my life is either in use or
                                                                you cannot plan success
                                                    - success is hard work and dedication-
                                                   with a constant focus on what comes next

i could see myself
living in a hotel
maybe when i get older-

ordering room service non-stop


  1. I love the organic but graphic nature of her spaces and work.
    Many of these rooms are on my virtual tearsheet list.
    And ordering room service non-stop in my dottage sounds like a pretty fab proposition.
    Cheers, Alcira

  2. Some people just live WELL.
