A new painting has come to life, and I think this has to be my favorite of all my paintings so far. I love the calm green-blue colors against the hints of gold, and I love that it´s so big ( 1200x1500mm ). This one will give life to any white wall for sure *smile*!
The painting is for sale, so if you are interested you can send me an email to nina(at)stylizimo(com).
You can find more info about the painting at my gallery byNinaHolst.com

It´s always difficult to know what to decorate the walls with, and with “new” walls like we have now it´s also a bit scary to make holes in case you change your mind… That´s why I like picture ledges so much, because then I can easily change the look just by replacing the items.
Anyway, before we moved in I had already decided to make a wall where I could feature my favorite books. I wanted the books to really stand out, so I painted the ledges in the same color as the wall ( LADY Pure Color 9913 Matrix ) to make them blend in.
Another great way to decorate with books is on the coffee table. I usually have both books and magazines on my table as I find it very decorative, but it´s also an easy way to change the look or the color theme if you want to match something else.
If you need more ideas for the wall, you could check out my picture wall in the living room.

I am very proud of being Norwegian after visiting the Gifts & Interior Trade Fair here in Norway yesterday. After they hired Dagny Thurmann-Hoelseth behind The Daily D to be the creative leader of the fair, she and her team has done a remarkable work raising the trade fair to a much higher level than before, and where it´s finally more focus on Norwegian design!
// NORWEGIAN TALENTS
One of the things that impressed me the most was the “Talent” area by Klubben that shows nearly 60 objects, all designed by young Norwegian designers. Everything they show in this area is available to consumers, and both Norwegian and international manufacturers are represented. I found a lot of new products to add on my wishlist, and my goal this year is to invest in more Norwegian design!
The exhibition is designed and crafted by Sarah Wright Pilmet, Thomas Jenkins, and Sverre Uhnger.
The mirror Rise & Shine by Hunting and Narud is one of many favories from the “Talent” area. I also have to mention the beautiful Saddle chair by Angell, Wyller and Aarseth that was also shown at the trend area – I want it!! ( See it in leather and grey fabric in the picture below )
I wouldn´t mind having the Lune lamp by Sverre Uhnher either.
// TRENDS SS 2015
The trend area “Tendenser” done by talented interior stylist Kirsten Visdal was also truly impressive. It was all together very delicate and her prediction of this spring/summer-trends went straight to the heart – I love the color schemes and the products she has chosen and I suddenly felt for more color in our home.
Tiki Sofa by Andreas Engesvik in leather – such a beauty and on my wishlist of course!
Saddle by Angell, Wyller and Aarseth
NATURE, TRADITION & GREEN VALUES will be the three most important trends in Norway this spring/summer according to Kirsten Visdal and Dagny Thurmann-Hoelseth. I hope they are right, because I really like what I see…
What do you think?

I´m still into marble and have a few new marble products on my wishlist. I would love to have this box for my jewellery and this tealight holder in my bedroom, as I think they both would look really good to the rest of the room.
If you are looking for marble products as well, I´m happy to tell you that we have a lot to choose from on Stylizimo Shop here and here.
