Did you see the feature on Nordic Elements and my house in The Gloss Interiors a couple of weekends ago which was distributed with the Irish Saturday Times? If not, here’s the feature and I’m so happy, proud and grateful for The Gloss choosing us to be part of this special issue. The photo’s by Doreen Killfeather are amazing and makes our home looks slightly surreal and tidy – not an easy quest with 2 boys (+ husband) in the house with no tidy ‘gene’ in their bodies. Anyway, a HUGE thank you to Jane McDonnell at The Gloss for the amazing feature and the stylish layout by her team.

At Nordic Elements our style is very much Modern Design although sometimes this is mentioned alongside Contemporary Design, I believe the two are different. Modern Design how I see it, is design based on true values which includes first of all a designer with principles, a focus quality and authenticity. Contemporary Design, I see as a style which covers all avenues of modern design of the 21st Century, therefore used broadly and as a general term to describe a style. The collection at Nordic Elements is selected based on the values of Modern Design, our style is Classic Modern joined with new designs we carefully select which draws inspiration from the Midcentury style we love here at NE HQ. To keep things fresh and interesting we need to make space for new products arriving for our AW15 collection – which is very exciting by the way! We will be adding some really beautiful new products to tie in with a new theme we will be running during the Autumn/Winter season. SO, so we are having our Summer Sale with up to 50% of selected products (on-line only), visit our SALE page to view – but note that we only have very limited numbers so be quick if something takes your fancy. If you are Dublin based, our Pop-Up at Lost Weekend in Dun Laoghaire will also be joining the Lost Weekend Sale with 20% off all products in the store, there are also some special offers only available at Lost Weekend. Here’s a taste of some of our SALE offers, many more so don’t miss out! Contemporary home accessories uk!
Summer has finally come to Ireland, it has taken a while but we are now enjoying the sun each day as they come as we all know that the weather in Ireland changes often from minute to minute. So, time to fire up the barbecue and eat al fresco and why not do it in style with the beautiful and very useful products from Danish company RO Collection, true Scandinavian style that is timeless.
Light a few candles to keep the bugs away, a little trick – you can get citronella nightlights in many stores such as Woodies (Ireland) or Homebase (UK) and they work wonders in keeping those pesky bugs away if you are sitting outside late at night enjoying the summer evenings.
Eating outside is always a joy, we spend so much time indoors during the Winter and cooler months, so when the weather finally co-operates, take every opportunity to sit outside with your coffee, breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks – any excuse. Have you noticed that al fresco eating seems to be much simpler as well, something on bbq a salad or two and a stick of bread. This can of course all be shop bought and prepared, but really not that hard to put together. A few of my old favourites that appears every year are:
Asparagus wrapped in parma ham – drizzle with olive oil, on the bbq or in the over for a few minutes and serve with shaved parmesan – Done!
Salads – use a mandolin if you have one, shave a fennel, a couple of apples and mix with watercress and sesame seeds. Mix a bit of Extra Virgin Olive Oil with lemon juice, salt & pepper and drizzle over – sooo tasty and refreshing.
For the person in charge of the barbeque we have the stylish and very useful barbeque tools which would also be the perfect gift as they are presented in a cool hessian bag tied with a leather string.
The Toolbox No. 4 is perfect to carry all your condiments, glasses and napkins to the terrace – useful and not just a pretty object.
Keep a few blankets in this gorgeous wire basket if the summer evening should get a little chilly – no need to rush inside, in Scandinavia we get the most out of our bright summer evenings and what’s better than to just wrap up in a blanket and stay outside for a little longer.
And lastly, don’t forget the ice for the drinks – use the Cylinda Ice Cooler from Stelton – a true classic which has a very important purpose (ice for the G&T’s).

We are delighted to welcome Scottish artist Ingrid Petrie to our collection of designers from the North. Ingrid’s designs are full of fun and happiness with her fresh, minimal approach to the shapes and patterns of nature and everyday life.
She has a strong, contemporary style and her designs appeal to lovers of a clean, graphic aesthetic. Her work is loved for its happy, quirky nature and her popular range of kids prints are full of personality.

We have long been fans of Kristina’s work and delighted to add some of her beautiful creations to our collections in time for Christmas.
The Copenhagen based studio was founded in 2012 by Kristina Krogh and specialises in graphic design and product design. Geometrics, contrasts, colours, materials and textures are some of the things Kristina love and are strongly represented in her work.
Below are some of the products we have selected for our shop – we hope you like them!
