Last week I was invited to Henningsvær, Lofoten by Samsung to attend to their world wide launch of their new TV, The Frame. This is something I know a lot of us have been waiting for; a TV that actually blends in with the rest of the interior! When it’s on, you get a TV with excellent image quality, and when The Frame is turned off, it is a decorative image with content as your wish. You can choose from pre-selected artwork by well-known artists, but it´s also possible to upload your own images if you´d rather prefer that. As a separate accessory you can choose to add a frame in walnut, light wood or white. The mounting is done by magnets so you can quickly customize the frame as you wish. Genius, right?

Nice new shelving system from IKEA

One of the best news that I´ve seen from IKEA in a very long time, is the new SVALNÄS system in bamboo. With this new system you´ll get the opportunity to design your own combination of wall shelves and units that suits your space and needs at a very affordable price. It´s also a nice way to get a natural look into a room as it´s made of beautiful bamboo.

In these pictures you see how the talented Swedish stylist, Pella Hedeby, have created an unique version of the wall shelving system in the bedroom. It looks amazing, don´t you think? You can see more pictures of her styling here.

I´m sure we will see a lot of the new SVALNÄS system in homes, offices and even stores in the time to come. You might even see it in my home as well ; )

Garden flowers


A wonderful and very fun weekend is over but the weekend-flowers is still standing… On Friday I picked these beautiful flowers in my own garden, and their scent is amazing!

As we are celebrating Norway´s Constitution day tomorrow, I´m sure many of my Norwegian readers are in need of some table setting inspiration the for the big day.

This year´s table setting for our National Day is in white and blue, and with lots of flowers in the same colors spread around the table. As a fun little detail I have attached a tag on each napkin that I´ve used stickers that says “HURRA” and “HIPP” ( I found the stickers on Søstrene Grene, but if you want to make something similar and don´t have time to buy these, you can write it yourself of course.. ) If you´d like to add some red to the table as well, you can just have some red flowers or some flags around the table. Or you can hang garlands of flags above the table or in the background as I have ( last picture ) .

I hope my table setting gave you a few ideas. For more table setting tips for tomorrow, check out my post “7 tips til 17 mai bordet”.

Wishing you all a wonderful celebration!
