Stylizimo Studio

I´m happy to say that I now have my very own studio/atelier located in Drammen city centre. I have renovated the place and are now starting to get in place. It feels so nice!
My plan is now to focus more on painting, but I will also use it as a photostudio and office. A mix of all the things I love!

Looking forward to share more from my studio and my work.

How to style a bar cart

Bar carts are probably not the most necessary home decor item, but they can certainly add the little extra to your living room if you decorate it nicely. I´ve had a bar trolley on my wishlist for a long time, but I had trouble finding the perfect one, until I discovered the timeless BAUHAUS trolley by Kristina Dam. You might remember it from my birthday wishlist? Well, my wish came true and I love it!


To make a bar cart to look stylish, you need nice accessories and bottles. If the bottle isn´t nice, use a carafe instead. Beautiful glasses look good on the trolley as well..
As a big fan of Georg Jensen products, I went for the Manhatten series as bar accessories. I think they match perfectly with the clean lines of the bar trolley.

Other than that I think it´s nice to style the trolley with flowers/green plants, and books/magazines. Just to soften it all up and make the cart blend in.

I hope you got a few tips if you want a bar trolley in your home as well. Happy festive weekend!  : )

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!
