MAKE YOUR OWN MIDSUMMER FLORAL HEAD WREATH

Are you going to a midsummer party this weekend and need a floral head wreath? It´s actually quite easy to make one. I made this flower wreath last weekend when I was going to a summerparty-birthday, and since I´ve had in in the refrigerator with some water on it since then it´s actually still looking fresh, so I can use it this weekend as well ; )

In this year´s wreath I used Gypsophila paniculata / “Brudeslør”, Ivy, olive branches and some pink and bordeaux flowers that I can´t remember the name of.. ( maybe you know the names? )

I followed this video for instructions.

If you are looking for an even easier way to make one, you can check out last year´s floral head wreath here.

HAPPY MIDSUMMER!

Dear reader, let me introduce you to ygg&lyng! A Norwegian furniture company that you might not have heard of yet but that definitely deserves a place in the spotlight. With its traditional Norwegian craftsmanship and Scandinavian modernism, ygg&lyng has a collection of furniture I am sure you will love. I certainly do and actually ended up buying the Viken dining table myself after the photo shoot I did for them. It has lightened up my kitchen and has become a welcoming place for any meal and even getting some work done ( I will show you later in another post ).

To give you an idea of what ygg&lyng has to offer, I have picked out some of my favorites from their collection and featured them in my home for you to see them in a familiar setting. I have also included the new stunning black Bris outdoor sofa, featured further down in this post. Like many of their products, the sofa is module based and can be tailored to your preferences both in size and color. I love it!

Here you have the Viken dining table together with the Non ChairMingle sofa and Fender lamp. A pretty nice combination, don´t you think?

INSTAGRAM COMPETITION – WIN A FENDER LAMP!

Another product that I´ve included in my styling is the Fender lamp. It is such a beauty and I love that it can be used as both a ceiling lamp and a table lamp. And if you feel the same about this lamp as I do, I am sure you will be happy to know that you can win this lamp that has a value of 3950 NOK! To participate all you have to do is follow ygg&lyng on Instagram, tag three of your friends and tell me if you´d like to win the white oiled oak or the black oak one. All this on my Instagram post about this competition. A lucky winner will be picked in a week.

So with that wonderful news, let me show you some more of my favorites from the ygg&lyng collection.

The Fender lamp, here in black oak.

The module based Dis coffee tables come in three different sizes, which gives you plenty of options to decorate. You can also choose between black and white legs and several table tops.

Enjoy summer in the Bris outdoor sofa! Each seat is a module and the armrest can be removed, so you can create your own sofa in any way you like. As you can see in these pictures it can also be used as a table. If you are looking for a lighter version, it´s available in white/light grey as well.

Find the whole ygg&lyng collection here.

Art by Nina Holst

A while back super-stylist, Pella Hedeby, bought a couple of my paintings for a styling job she was doing for JM.se. I was very honoured that Pella wanted to buy my art of course, and have since then been very excited to see how the paintings would turn out in the house she was styling. Today the photos of her project are finally out on her blog, and I´m so impressed of the work that she has done! Every room in the house looks amazing, and I´m very happy and proud to see my paintings in this inspiring environment. They turned out quite nice, if I may say so : )

Make sure you see the whole house featured on her blog – it´s very inspiring! You can also see how she planned it all with moodboards here.

Most of my paintings on By Nina Holst are sold out, but I do orders as well. So if you are interested in a painting, please send an email to: byninaholst@stylizimo.com

ANNONSE

 

Soverommet blir gjerne det rommet man har langt ned på lista når man innreder, men for økt livsskvalitet er soverommet absolutt noe man bør bruke både litt tid og penger på. En natt med dårlig søvn kan få konsekvenser for hele dagen som kommer, så det å sikre en god natts søvn er kanskje en av de beste investeringene en kan gjøre i hjemmet har jeg selv erfart.

For å gi kroppen de beste forhold til å slappe av har Ekornes Beds blant annet utviklet Svane-senger med IntelliGel som både reduserer faren for ryggplager og gir en behagelig temperatur. Dette materialet finner du bare hos Svane. Men det er ikke bare kvalitetssenger Ekornes Beds produserer.  De gir deg også inspirasjon til å skape et behagelig soverom. På deres Instagram konto @svaneseng finner du masse inspirasjon til soverommets fire vegger, og med hashtaggen #svaneseng kan du også dele dine egne inspirasjonsbilder. Er du mer interessert i de tekniske finessene til Svane-sengene så kan jeg anbefale å sjekke ut Facebook siden deres, hvor du vil blant annet finne hva som gjør deres teknologi så unik.

VINN 2 SVANE METRO NATTBORD

Så med inspirasjonskildene i boks så er du kanskje klar for å gjøre forandringer? Da har jeg isåfall gleden av å tilby en konkurranse i samarbeid med Ekornes Beds hvor du kan vinne to lekre nattbord til en verdi av 3 299,- per nattbord! Det samme nattbordet som du ser på bildene her hjemme hos meg. For å være med i konkurransen er det bare å gå inn på min Instagram-konto her og finne konkurranseinnlegget, følge @svaneseng og tagge tre av vennene dine. Men vær rask! Vinneren trekkes den 25.06.17.

Lykke til!

After a week with pouring rain it´s finally warm and sunny again. It´s not easy to get that summery feeling when the weather is bad, but at least I´ve done my best to create a light and summery feeling in our house these last few days, including the bedroom. Gathering some of my light beauty accessories and straw in a glass vase on a tray, pluss hanging some blue wardrobe favorites on my clothing rail gave immediately a touch of summer in the room. Crispy white sheets does the trick as well.

Summer – you are welcome!
