New Tone Cabinets by Norm Architects

Wednesday, March 22, 2017


Norm Architects need no introduction on this blog, the architectural team based in Copenhagen are behind many big projects few among them exceptional designs for Menu as well as well as most notable renovations for The Village, &Tradtion headquarters in Copenhagen or The Kinfolk Gallery. Today I am sharing one for their newest projects, one I was happy to see up and close at Stockholms design fair a month ago the sound absorbing cabinets for Zilenzio .
"Designed to absorb certain frequencies of sound where it is needed the most, our new collection of acoustic furniture for Zilenzio was designed to improve sound in the spaces that matters to you the most. Entitled Tone Cabinets, these sound dampening design pieces were made to help built a balanced acoustic environment in the workplace or at home, ultimately making it easier to focus and concentrate." By Norm Architects.
As I will be moving to Oslo soon this is a great idea for a city apartment, the design is flawless and I need cabinets that I won't want to hide, plus they will work on transforming the new space into an acoustic haven.

Pilea Love : How to propagate your Pilea

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

//Photography by Katerina Dima

I am so happy to see my little pileas grow. I propagated them from the only pilea peperomioides I have and since it was my first time I really did not know what to expect. It turns out it was quite easy : with a sharp knife cut the new pileas that naturally grow around the plant, then plant them in a new pot (I found a useful video here). Water when the dirt dries and keep in a sunny window. After a while the pilea baby will start to grow once its new roots take in the new soil. It took about two (maybe even a little more) months before the two that I propagated started to show any growth though. There are many techniques as far as I read, one suggests putting the new pilea in water until it grows roots, another that states the pot must have a drainage hole, and another that suggests using a pot without it. I used pots with and without drainage holes and the baby pileas show the same growth, in fact the pilea without the drain takes longer for its soil to dry so it needs less watering thus making it easier to maintain.

Beige in the Bedroom : Early Spring signs

Monday, March 20, 2017

Ad // Sponsored post in collaboration with Ellos. All opinions are my own.
As the weather continues to surprise us every day, from intense snowing to intense sunlight and warmth after just a few hours, I can't help but dream of spring. While for most people spring translates to bright yellows, greens and pinks, to me all the exploding colors of the nature outside are enough, which is why I chose to bring spring inside my bedroom with various tones of beige, a color that to me represents tranquility and mindfulness.  In other words, perfect combination for the bedroom! I like to change my pillows often but when it comes to the fabric, I almost always stick to linen. I have had my eye on a particular design of pillowcases on Ellos Home for some time now and when they arrived on Friday I was so glad to see they fit with my plan perfectly. The pillowcases Putevar Candra in washed linen come in many different combinations, but I chose a plain white/silver so it would pop out against with my beige duvet covers and the rest the pillows. As the weather gets warmer I find that linen is perfect to sleep on, so all my bed covers are in linen as well by choice. My duvet covers are the Sengesett Candice in washed linen  (color beige), while the ice blue/white blanket is the Pledd Hannelin in washed linen (color grey-blue) also from Ellos home. And with this change of color, I am happy until summer!

Friday Thoughts

Friday, March 17, 2017

//Photography and Styling by Katerina Dima
Lately I have lost track of time, so it came as a surprise that today its friday. Between tax season, renovating downstairs and keeping up with the blog and freelance work, I am so behind that I doubt I will have any time during weekend to relax. And with some press events coming to Oslo next week that I will be attending, I will definitely have my hands full next few days. Looking forward to sharing some highlights from the trip, as always the best place if you want to keep up is my Instagram. When I travel I always update my stories daily, it is a great way to show where I am or what I am doing in a fun and refreshing way!

The IKEA House

Monday, March 13, 2017

Livet Hemma (Life at home) is the IKEA inspirational blog, where various notable stylists and photographers regularly contribute posts, mostly including IKEA products, styled and photographed to reflect the Scandinavian style and way of life. New IKEA designs include updated materials, silhouettes and colors, all curated towards mirroring new trends in Scandinavian design. I regularly visit the blog for inspiration, today I am sharing some of my favorite photos as of late that make up for a full home tour, a home I would gladly move in today even. Below you can find inspiration for the office, the living room, the kitchen, the bathroom and the bedroom. I particularly love the new color palette, green and beige is a combination I turn to a lot lately. The details in some of the photos below are equally notable, I am convinced I need an IKEA herringbone counter in my next kitchen!

Birthday Girl

Wednesday, March 8, 2017

Today its my birthday and I treated myself to some gifts. Some magazines and books that were missing from my collection and a new Byredo perfume and bath products. The magazines arrived yesterday (photo above) while the Byredo additions probably will be here by the end of the week. When you shop for yourself time is irrelevant! Even though I am quite busy, I am trying my hand in a cake, the recipe of which I found in the Kinfolk Table book, Hummingbird cake with Cream cheese frosting. Fingers crossed! If there is any left by tomorrow I ll be sure to snap some photos :) And with these few words, I need to rush and get the cake out of the oven and then finish off my new media kit!

Dream Collaboration for Rum Hemma

Tuesday, March 7, 2017

I have been waiting for the full spread of these photos since Sara Medina Lind and Pella Hedeby teased some previews on their instagram accounts and surely enough , the dreamy collaboration is a stunning collection of soft minimalism. The resulting photos can be seen at this months Rum Hemma. Pella and Sara Medina used some of my personal favorites for this shoot when it comes to interior , but most of all I cannot wait for the COS SS 17 line to hit the stores! I have seen some of the items already in a closed press preview (some of them are pictured above) and I can only say, if you like soft lines, cotton, linen and hemp, you will love what is to come.

Spring Tip

Saturday, March 4, 2017

I get a lot of questions about my avocado trees, and if I have one tip (earned from a few years of experience now), is to plant them early around January so they start growing when spring hits. They get most of their growth these following few months so if you want to plant one,  now is the best time. I have grown 3 now and although they grow a little bit during winter they do show almost triple the growth during Spring and Summer. Since I live in a small city for the time being, it is very hard to come by fresh flowers of my taste so I prefer either planting my own or buying a plant when I visit Oslo or Bergen. Avocado trees are very elegant and easy to grow, while they only need water and little care after that. Plus I always feel so guilty to throw all those stones! If you want a simple guide on how to grow your own from an avocado stone I made a blogpost a while ago (with step by step photos) that might be useful to a beginner. Now I am off to work for a few hours on my tax return and receipts, the glamorous side of my job!
