A new look in the offce

A NEW LOOK IN THE OFFICE

A long and relaxing vacation is now over and it´s time to get back to work. With a new start, I also have a new look in the office. I don´t know if you remember the beautiful second-hand desk I used to have in here. Well, I´m afraid it was to high for me and not good for my neck and shoulders, so I´m back to my white simple desk again. It´s probably a bit boring comparing the second-hand desk, but I actually like simplicity and how light it became in here with my white desk.

hanging strawberry plant

One of my best investments this summer is this hanging strawberry plant. Every day I find new strawberries that are ready to be enjoyed, and they taste extra delicious when they come directly from the plant. Simple summer bliss!

I actually had a hanging strawberry plant last year as well, but this year my plant carries a lot more fruits and the berries are sweeter and taste much better – probably a result of more sunshine I guess..

Inspirasjon til soverommet

For inspirasjon til soverommet har jeg satt sammen 10 favoritter til soverommet fra nettbutikken Room21.no. På soverommet passer det godt med et rolig og svalt tema, og i tillegg til å være praktisk er det viktig med komfort.

INSPIRASJON TIL SOVEROMMET

1. Lens oppbevaringseske fra Hay er super til å ha smykkene sine i, samtidig som den bringer natur og varme inn på soverommet.
2. Håndkrem er jo et must på nattbordet, og denne velduftende kremen fra Meraki bringer helt klart litt luksus i hverdagen.
3. Jeg har lenge ønsket meg en kleshenger designet av Anna Leena. Rail Rektangel kleshenger skulle jeg gjerne hatt på soverommet til de fineste klærne mine.
4. Jeg har denne vakre Waltz posteren av Tove Frank i stua, men den gjør seg like bra på et soverom.
5. Drømmelampa over alle i mine øyne! AJ bordlampe på nattbordet setter helt klart prikken over i´en på soverommet.
6. Det sies at man ikke skal ha mobilen i nærheten når man sover, så da må man jo ha en tøff vekkeklokke i stedet. Norm Tumbler alarmklokke fra Menu liker jeg.
7. Speil hører til på et soverom, og hvorfor ikke et rundt speil et med skinnreim fra Ferm Living.
8. Tøffe hengere hører med når man har så fint oppheng. Liker så godt disse enkle sorte hengerne fra Hay.
9. Det 100% økologiske sengetøyet fra Aiayu er helt fantastisk å ligge i, og hvor nydelig er det ikke i denne lyse grønnfargen?
10. Dette fantastiske Spring teppe fra House Doctor kunne jeg hatt hvor som helst i huset, men på soverommet er det alltid godt med et teppe å trå på.

 

Håper min kollasj kunne gi deg litt inspirasjon til soverommet. Hvilke av mine 10 favoritter til soverommet liker du best?

DIY outdoor sofa

DIY OUTDOOR SOFA

I´ve mentioned earlier that we made a DIY outdoor sofa on the top level on our terrace, and now with the new pillows it not only looks better, but it´s much more comfy as well. My plan was actually to make pillows myself, but when I found these in the right size at an affordable price at Ikea, I bought some instead.

To make the sofa we first made a solid frame using treated materials, before we covered the fronts and sides with the same type of panel as we used on the railing on the terrace. On the top we used the same decking as we have on the rest of the terrace.

The height on the sofa is all together approx. 50cm and the width 60 cm.

After treating the wood with Jotun Visir, we painted it in the same color as the house and railing – Optimal 9938 Dempet sort.

Magazines

The sofa works perfect as a sun bed as well, and with the pillows it´s now a new favorite place to spend our time whenever we are out on the terrace.

And with this relaxed setting, I´m now taking a few weeks off to enjoy summer here in Norway. There will still be some updates on my blog, but most of the action will be on my Instagram.

I wish you all a lovely summer! If you are in need of some simple and fun activities to do in the summer, you can check out my Stylizimo´s Summer Checklist.

My summer checklist

SUMMER CHECKLIST

This year I´ve made myself a summer checklist with some of my favorite things to do in the summer. The summer is passing by so fast so it´s nice to have a list to make sure you do all the things that make the most of it. I always have big expectations when it comes to summer, but when I think of it, it´s actually the simple things that makes it special. The things that I enjoyed doing as a child, and that brings out the nostalgia in me. I´m sure you have your own favorite things to do in the summer, but hopefully my checklist can give you some ideas as well.

 

15 THINGS I LIKE TO DO IN THE SUMMER

  • Swim in a lake
  • Fill a straw with berries
  • Read a book
  • Picking wildflowers
  • Eating lots of ice cream
  • Lay in the grass and look at the clouds
  • Play badminton
  • Walk barefoot in the grass
  • Make a head wreath with wildflowers
  • Having a picnic in the park or by the lake
  • Drinking lemonade
  • Go fishing
  • Having a nap in a hammock
  • Barbecue
  • Collect seashells at the beach
