“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom”

Quote from one of my favorite authors Anais Nin.

I brought in some lilac branches here the other day, and now they have started to blossom.         The scent! I can’t image something more spring-like than this lovely smell!

Theese beautiful photos are shot by Heather Payne, and inspire me to go out and pick a nice bouquet, to place on the dinner-table. The joy looking at gorgeous flowers!

Birthday wishes! (because its allowed to have dreams, right?)

This summer two friends of mine were married. It was a wonderful wedding.                        Relaxed atmosphere, lovely food and drinks, and of course a lot of love.

I was honored to get the job of doing the decorating. These are some shoots of the tables where the dinner was held.

A great thanks to Marita Nielsen who shoot these beautiful pictures.

Every summer I usually visit my grandparents who lives at the west coast of Norway. When I leave them, I always have something with me, like an old suitcase, tableware, jewelry and other bits and bobs. On these pictures I´ve collected some of their stuff and styled it with some of their flowers from their beautiful garden.

Hope you´re having a wonderful summer!

Peace & love!

New chapter

Last week was my last one at the lovely interior store Milla Boutique. I´ve been working there as a trainee for six months, and there have been six wonderful months where I have learned, developed my skills regarding interior styling, met a lot of interesting people, sipped prosecco, discovered amazing decor objects and laughed A LOT. The two charming ladies behind the store Camilla Berntsen and Tine Robertsen has been the most welcoming as ever imagined. I wish them good look further on. I know theres ´lots of thrilling things going on with the boutique!
