Book signing & review – Happy Home Everyday Magic for the Family

Founder and owner of Rice,  Charlotte Hedeman Guéniau, have just written another gorgeous book, “Happy Home Everyday Magic for the Family“,  this time including fabulous recipes and fun style ideas. I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch of the book and met Charlotte there.

Anybody with a passion for colour and fun home accessories, will just love the Danish brand Rice, known for their colourful playful home wares. We are talking melamine, ceramics, glass, textiles, weaves like baskets, picnic ware and so much more. Rice is very much an ethical home ware brand with a heart, doing business responsibly. “Most of our products are made by workers in third world countries, and we make sure that all products are produced with high regards to human rights, healthy labor conditions and with no use of child labor.”
