URBAN GARDENING IN THE KITCHEN

Paid partnership with Georg Jensen Damask
I’ve spent some time during the weekend gardening in my balcony. Although its quite small I have room for herbs, some berry plants and vegetables. My balcony being right outside of the kitchen its so close I dont need herbs inside right now but I still want a lush, green feeling inside. So what to do then? Creating that botanical feeling inside beautiful green textiles does the trick. Plus some plants, its so nice to have some on the kitchen counter all year round.

The Georg Jensen Damask range this spring has everything you need to add the botanical feeling in your kitchen. My favorite being the EGYPT kitchen towel in Jade Green, design by Christine Raundahln. Its made of soft, high-quality cotton which ensures an excellent drying capacity. Not only adding the beautiful nature color in the kitchen but also a feeling of luxury and elegance. Christine Raundahln has created a beautiful woven pattern that goes very well with the rest of the Georg Jensen Damask kitchen textile range. Mixing different styles is a great way to create personality.

Georg Jensen Damask is one of Denmark’s oldest design brands with a history going back half a millennium. Exquisite quality, timeless design and proud weaving traditions are the essence of the company. Their textiles are created in cooperation with talented and acknowledged Scandinavian designers, architects and weavers sharing their passion. Not only do they create new, beautiful designs, they also take inspiration from a extensive design archive. New or old design, always with respect for the craftsmanship and heritage and with a focus on functionality, quality and aesthetics. Having the unique quality of being classic and modern at the same time.

No need to hide away the dishcloth when it looks as beautiful as this one. The Linen dishcloth from Georg Jensen Damask is now available in the new Jade Green color.

There are different things you can do to accomplish the urban gardening feeling in the kitchen. The obvious being adding plants, and the green textiles. You can also add small accessories related to the botanical theme like the mist sprayer I have above, small garden tools or a small table top greenhouse. You can make your own tea of dried herbs and while they are drying they can be decorative hanging in the kitchen as well. A small fig tree is a good choice for a plant on the kitchen counter and here you can reed more about how to keep them. Freshly picked figs for breakfast from your own tree is quite nice!

    Hei Elisabeth! Først og fremst, for en fin blogg du har! Jeg lurer på om du kan gi noen fargeråd. Jeg er i ferd med å skifte ut et gaaammelt kjøkken i en leilighet jeg og samboer nylig tok over. Vi er nesten klare med å sende en bestillingen til hth, men er litt i tvil på fargevalg.

    Vi har faktisk valgt samme benkeplate som deg, den er veldig fin. Hvilke hvitfarge på kjøkkenet vil du anbefale? Vi ønsker å ha et hvitt kjøkken og en lys gråfarge på veggen. Syns du det blir for hvitt med klasssisk hvit? Vi har blitt anbefalt s1002Y av hth(lignende egghvit), men jeg syns det blir vanskeligere å velge andre farger til en mer gulaktig hvit.

    Hilsen Tonje

      Hei Tonje! Så hyggelig å høre du liker bloggen :)
      Jeg ville styrt unna hvitfarger med for my hvitt i, du har helt rett – det er vanskelig å kombinere de
      med andre farger. Jeg har malt mine vegger med LADY 1928 Sommersne. Den er grå, men ikke kald og går godt til benkeplaten. Jeg har lister og dører malt med klassisk hvit på kjøkkenet og de to går også fint sammen.
      Lykke til med kjøkken og fargevalg!

    Tusen takk for tilbakemeldingen din. Det er veldig gøy å velge hvordan man vil ha det, men også litt vanskelig :) Sommersne skal vi absolutt ta med oss videre! Den ser veldig fin ut på bilder. Med for mye hvitt i, mener du gult i ? -Tonje
