Magical morning view


The beauty of waking up early, is the magical view that I get from our terrace. Just listening to all the happy birds and enjoing the peaceful morning is a lovely way to start the day. I´m feeling truly grateful for this beautiful view we have.. and of course for all the incredible nice weather we have these days. Summer is definitely here!

Table setting with summer feeling


A few days ago we celebrated our National day (17th of May) here in Norway, and with the wonderful weather we had, I sat the table out on our terrace. I went for a simple white, blue and light grey theme and used Lilly of the Valley as flower decorations. As a fun little detail I had tags on each napkin that say “HIPP” and “HURRA” (which are typical words we use a lot of on this day..)

But as you can see, this table setting can of course be used in other settings as well. Whether it is a birthday celebration, summerparty or whatever the occasion is. Just make tags with other words and use whatever flowers you have around.

Table setting tip of the week : )

A tip for the kitchen


I was telling you earlier this spring that I´ve wanted more green plants in my home, and one of the rooms that I´ve also have plants to add some color and life is in our kitchen.
I usually have herbs, but unfortunately they die in a few days. So I this time I went for a green plant that is much easier to keep alive. It´s growing fast as well! An easy tip to freshen up the kitchen : )

Another addition to our kitchen is the beautiful Bernadotte Thermos from Georg Jensen (adlink). I had this on my wishlist for my birthday, and my wish came true – oh, joy!

"Finding your place" by Nina Holst

Lately I´ve spent time on painting again, and I just can´t describe how nice it is to dissapear into another world where there is only me, my brushes and good music on my ear… Oh, joy!

If you remember my previous paintings, you might notice that they have a new look than before. I have been experimenting with some new techniques, and are quite pleased with the result if I may say so… : ) Let me introduce you to my latest finished work: “Finding your place” 1000x1200mm, and “Together” 1000x1200cm featured in my home.
