In the summer heat it´s not easy to keep fresh flowers to stay alive indoors, so my tip is to find some decorative straws that don´t need water. They last forever and look beautiful and summery. Happy sunny weekend from me!

// This is a paid advertorial with Corian(R) Design
Before I start decorating a room, I am usually going through a process beforehand involving planning, thinking and making moodboards. I find that creating a moodboard is just a fantastic tool to help me see if the room will get the feeling that I am looking for, and the tool that I use is Photoshop.
But this is an advanced piece of software, that is both expensive and requires a bit of knowledge to use. I was therefore happy when Corian Design invited me to test their online Moodboard Maker. Finally, a simple way to get a sense of how colors, textures and more will match together!
So what is it? The Moodboard Maker is a super-simple online tool that allows you to create a unique inspiration board for a room. With the tool, you can create a collection of reference textures, colors, patterns and materials, and basically get a feel of how the room will be. The finished moodboard can easily be shared or printed – and you will also get a list of the Corian(R) Design products you have used.
Ready to give it a try? Just click this link and get started. And I would love to see what you create, so please share your board on social media and use the hashtag #CorianMoodboardMaker!

Flower tip for your garden

I have to share my beautiful white “Delphinium” (Ridderspore) that just started blooming on our terrace. This is a perennial plant and I´ve had it for a few years already, and I love its beautiful, tall spires! They get a lot of flowers as well, and are perfect for a vase inside as well. Flower tip of the day : )

Happy weekend, everyone. I´ll be back tomorrow showing you a fun tool that you can use – so stay tuned!

Close to you by Nina Holst


As I´ve told you earlier, I now have my own atelier/studio in the city (Drammen). I love spending my days there, and I´m super inspired and have lots of new energy for creating! Here you see “Close to you”, 1200×1000 cm – that I finished up yesterday. What do you think?

You can find my latest work over at or follow me on my other instagram @byninaholst.
