Happy weekend! Hope it's a lovely one. It's going to be a fairly laid back one here — something very welcome after a busy week. How about you?

Seaside Reverie

Wanting to escape city apartment living, freelance journalist and cookbook author Hélène Wagn dreamed of a fisherman's cottage — somewhere by the sea and forest, where she could settle with her teenage son Lauritz. Eventually she found one (with a lovely patio as well), but discovered after buying it that it was in worse shape than she realized. Happily, Hélène embraced this as an opportunity, and working with an architect and stylist friend, redid the layout from scratch. The result is a peaceful space with a strong Zen influence — the perfect retreat from the noise of the city. More here on Bolig Magasinet.

The Listening Booth: Summer Swim, Part 2

Welcome to The Listening Booth, a regular series of posts that features a guest musician, DJ or music devotee sharing their current three favourite songs with automatism readers. 

Today's Listening Booth is hosted by the brilliantly talented and lovely DJ Lamb Rabbit, and it's all about warm summer days spent in and by the water. In fact, Lamb Rabbit was so inspired that our Summer Listening Booth post is a four part series, to dip into throughout the month of August. Enjoy Part 2.


Hailing from Ottawa, Canada, Rachel DJs around town under her creative nom de plume Lamb Rabbit, as well as with a lady-DJ collective she co-founded called The Girlfriends.

You can find some of Rachel's mixes here

Rachel's Three Picks

Summer sun leaves me yearning to get off of dry land and into the cool, cool water. Lay back and listen to the lapping of the waves, or dive a little deeper. Let's go swimming.
