The perfect gift for an architecture geek?

Unsure what to buy the lover of modern architecture in your life for Christmas? 

Check these rather brilliant monochrome graphic illustrations of modern houses, by the Danish illustrator, Kristina Dam.

Very Falling Water... I discovered Kristina's work via the online store, Nordic Elements, where I was lusting over their fluffy yellow towels earlier this week. The prints cost £75 each, framed in a choice of black or white aluminium, A4 size. But if you can't stretch to that...

But do check out Kristina's own website too, where you can also buy mini versions: A5 postcard-size size for just £3.40ish (or 30 Danish Krone – or £28ish, kr250, for a set of 10). And if this style of architecture floats your boat, there's some more to ogle over via these past posts.

I was also captivated by the Kristina's graphic bedspread – but mainly because of the excellent room setting it's displayed in (that is a fantastic wall light). Could you get more Danish? Is it possible for a British person to create – and maintain – a room as cleanly, monochromely designed as this? I'm in awe. If you have such a room, do share.

Kristina has also designed possibly the most style-conscious Christmas decorations I've ever seen (£24 for a pack of six, also available from Nordic Elements). Would you?
