Mushroom Season

Saturday, September 24, 2016



Autumn is my favorite season no doubt. The leaves that fall, the color palette, the last soft warm breeze, all the wonderful new flavors. It is time for long hikes in the forest with a basket ready for filling. Mushrooms, berries, wild apples, everything is within your hands reach. Yesterday I decided to make a mushroom mix for lunch, just two types of mushrooms that you can find abundantly at the supermarket freshly picked, or that you can find yourself in the forest since it is their favorite season to grow. If you would like to replicate my easy lunch, it only takes a few minutes, just read below on how to make yourself a healthy and hearty autumn bite!
:: Preparation | Lightly saute the mushrooms in a pan with a tablespoon of olive oil or butter.I add either a couple of tablespoons water so they wont burn or chicken stock for some extra flavor. After 2 to 3 minutes remove from heat and drizzle some fresh lemon juice on top. Add a tablespoon of low fat sour cream and season with some black sea salt.

Cozy blogging spot

Tuesday, September 20, 2016



There are many places in my home that I choose to work from when I want to concentrate, mostly however you will find me either on my desk or on the living room table. There is quite an appeal working outside too, I certainly love a good hot chocolate and a few hours in my favorite coffee shop,but the truth is, I will mostly work from home. This cozy kitchen nook via Fantastic Frank seems like the perfect place to me. The light is just right, not too bright but at the same time very inviting, while the space is minimal and inspiring. Some advice when it comes to styling your working space as seen above is to remove as much clatter as possible, add one or two greens or flowers, a candle and a lamp for late hours, then get your warm coffee and a snack and you are ready to get to work.

September Wishlist : Bedroom edition

Sunday, September 18, 2016

Collage by Only Deco Love
:: Sleep in | Make your winter bedroom as cozy as possible for the cold days ahead. Layers of linen and warm blankets will do great but also, consider a beautiful linen canopy (my favorite from Artilleriet) for a fairytale feel.
:: Read in Bed | My pick for a book for this month, Home is where the heart is?, by Ilse Crawford. If you are into historical novels, I can heartily suggest Tudor era books, the rose wars and those few centuries of turbulence. I find all the stories fascinating, even though there are some historical inaccuracies when it comes to the novels. 
:: Plant Care | If you have planted your avocado tree when I last made a post about it, it should be ready to be re potted in a bigger home. The new Tine K ceramic pots are roomy and will allow for growth while looking every bit of the part.
:: Lighting | With winter the days get shorter, especially where I live in Norway. A floor lamp is always welcomed for ambient bedroom lighting, and the Mantis Lamp fits perfectly.
:: Keep clean | For the elusive bedroom fireplace (or for your living room) , the most stylish fireplace cleaning and upkeeping tools by Eldvarm.

Oslo Bathroom Love

Saturday, September 17, 2016







//Photos by Katerina Dima
While in Oslo during August I stayed at Comfort Karl Johan Hotel (see the blogpost here), and while my room and the hotel themselves were quite beautiful, what stole my heart was the absolutely amazing bathroom. The light was amazing, shining through the milky window glasses, it created an ambient calming atmosphere throughout the day.The high ceilings reinforced a lofty feeling, while the black and white design of the tiles defining the shower area gave depth but also accentuated the tall windows even more. I immediately took a shower and a long bath right after I layered out all my Aesop favorite travel sized products for an even more homey feeling. I loved the hotel but I was even more sad to leave this bathroom behind, definitely visiting again next time I am in Oslo for a few days.

Parisian finds

Friday, September 16, 2016

Finally I am back from all the fairs and vacations, and although I had a great time, I am quite happy to be back. I have spend most of my day today unpacking and organizing, and one of the first things I went looking into my bags were the ceramic spoons I bought at Merci store in Paris. I would have loved to shop more however my bags were already too heavy from having packed for a months worth of travelling. I had been looking for ceramic spoons for a while (usually this type is mostly widely sold) so when I saw the Serax ones at Merci I immediately reached out for them. I got two white teaspoons and two white coffee scoops, white being the only color that was available for now. Tip : These will also make for a great gift , either alone or along with a coffee set for coffee enthusiasts.

Jotun Lady Press Breakfast : Fall Colors

Saturday, September 10, 2016

//Colors | LADY Våtrom 7163 Minty Breeze
A few days ago I attended the Jotun Lady press breakfast in Oslo, where we were presented with the new Jotun Lady colors for fall and talked about new trends. I immediately singled out some colors and I will be definitely using them come winter for my own home. On the photo above, the Minty Breeze green color , from their Urban Living color line, is perfect for the bathroom but I can also see it easily in the bedroom or in the kitchen.

//Colors | LADY Pure Color 1352 Form - Hylle i LADY Supreme Finish halvblank 9918 Klassisk Hvit
There is a new white in town and as its name suggests it is already a classic. Klassisk Hvit (classic white from their Nordic Living color line),  is the perfect shade of white , especially as combined in the photo above with the most beautiful nude warm grey color in my opinion called Form.


//Colors | LADY Minerals 10679 Washed Linen
Apart from greys blues and whites, Jotun Lady also launched a series of softer earthy colors. Washed linen (from their Continental Living color line) as seen in the photo above is my favorite, while there is a darker hue called Cashmere that I predict will also be very popular. I noticed Washed linen and the old Form matching very beautifully together, definitely a combination I will be attempting, so stay tuned!
