LOVEly Flower Shop: SAXIFRAGA

Hello everyone!
Here is another flower shop I visited for my article in sisterMAG last year. This shop is all about mini-bouquets. If you read my blog, you know I like mini-bouquets. My lovely #2flowergirls Inga from glomerylane calls me the “mini-bouquet lover”!

Saxifraga in Hamburg, is one of my all time favourite flower shop. Forget everything you know about flower shops before you go there. The owner Carola Wineberger is a very creative lady and really manages to create atmospherical flower compositions.  The shop is situated in the very creative district called Karolinenviertel or Karoviertel and surrounded by many small shops with a lot of handmade fashion and decoration items.

She makes some very small bouquets and displays them in recycled jars or shot glasses – they really look like the ones I loved making when I was a child – and still make now. No vase is small enough for these little beauties. She sells them for a couple of Euros. I find it so refreshing to find that kind of bouquet in a flower shop. So far away from all those pre-formated bouquets you find everywhere with gerberas and a lot of green.

Have a great day and speak to you soon!
Elodie

Herr Max

Herr Max

Hello everyone,
as promised yesterday, I am presenting you today the lovely Herr Max in Hamburg where the Räder presentation took place.
It is located in the Sternschanze district in Hamburg, in the same street as the great flower shop Grüne Flora. It has this rough flair I particularly like. If you are visiting Hamburg, I really recommend visiting this amazing place for a coffee, a piece of cake, or an ice-cream in the summer. Herr Max is open everyday from 10:00 to 21:00.

Dear Matsu – A lovely tea salon in Hamburg

Hello everyone,
I am enjoying the calm at home right now, as my little one is still sleeping and my husband has left to go to work. Today I would like to share with you my new discovery in Hamburg. I discovered this lovely place last week when pushing the pram and my neighborhood with my friend Sabrina.
Dear Matsu, is a new tea salon and vegan restaurant in lovely Hamburg – Eppendorf, situated in the lovely Erikastrasse. The place opened in March and looks so Japanese! I completely fell in love with it. It is incredible, but the owners Mathias and Sylvia have never been to Japan – but as I told them, you really have the impression that this place could be in a street of Tokyo or Kyoto. The place is called dear matsu after their favourite sort of tea.
The decoration is absolutely lovely and puristic – I am particularly in love with the copper Tom Dixon lamps on the green wall.

The shop is called after a building in the same street (Schulterblatt) named rote flora – a former theatre, squatted since 1989.

KALASON

Hey everyone,

I hope you had a good start to this new week. Today I would like to share with you another shop I love. It’s a very Scandinavian shop as often in Hamburg. That is, by the way, one of the reasons why I like Hamburg so much. It’s because you often feel closer culturally and design-wise to Copenhagen than to Munich! The other shops with a great selection of Scandinavian design I presented to you in the past are LIV, Lys Vintage, smukkeStore or Nordlys.
The particularity of KALASON is that they have a focus on design for children with brands like little elephant or sebra, but you can also find some classic design brands such as nordal or hay.
The shop owner Katharina Langewender is also a graphic designer, and a lot of the postcards that can be found in the shop are her own design. Katharina also designs logos and is responsible for Lieschen‘s pretty logo.
The shop is situated in the very lively and pretty district of Winterhude, where you can also find the  shop schön und ehrlich, next to the canal, but you can also purchase everything online via the great online shop.

Here are a couple of pictures. Even if online shopping is great, nothing can replace a real-life shopping tour:
