Harper and Brooks AW 2018 Editorial

November 22, 2018

Ad // Editorial Campaign For Harper and Brooks

I am lucky to be working with a Norwegian watch company Harper and Brooks, on producing some editorials for them and their very beautiful range of classic watches. For the Autumn Winter 2018 editorial I decided to use only materials that nature provides us this time of year abundantly, anything that characterizes the passing from season to season. This is very close to Harper and Brooks ideology and the values of the company :

We design products that we love ourselves. We always strive for the highest possible quality. We care about the world around us and work with sustainable and thoughtfully considered materials.

Swiss mechanics, diamond-cut Sapphire Crystal glass and 316L surgical Stainless steel are core components at Harper & Brooks. They take pride in using locally sourced materials like vegetable tanned leather from Tärnsjö Garveri in Sweden and organic wool material from Scandinavia.

I personally really love the classics, their wool collection is very unique and I really like that everything is locally sourced. In this way , I am really proud to be working with a Norwegian brand with such strong values, I believe we should be supporting everything local if we can and most importantly Norwegian Design.

This week and until Friday, everything on the Harper and Brooks webstore is marked 30% down and many of favorite designs are marked 70% down. If you are also looking to support Norwegian Design and on the market for a watch, this is really a great opportunity. I chose a few designs to showcase today, but do visit the webstore to find more of the range and all the great sale opportunities ( like the gift section where you can find a watch and an extra strap). There is free International shipping with all orders so you dont need to live in Norway to take advantage of this great opportunity.

Inspiration for Christmas on a budget by Ellos

November 20, 2018

Ad // Campaign For Ellos

November has only a week left in the calendar but I think we are all already preparing for Christmas at this point. Some earlier, some later, I am among the ones that do it early not only because I love this season but because I always try to find great ideas for you as early as possible! Be it on the design side, affordable or splurgy , I have been scouting the web for the best. This year (the winner for the budget side) Ellos Christmas editorial is very much to my taste. So much so that my take on Christmas would be almost identical if I was shopping the entirety of my selection from Ellos. I like to mix and match of course, so this will not be the result in my own home, but how beautiful is this festive editorial? Down to the colors, styling, everything is so well done I am so very impressed. In fact, I have already put an order for some decorations, and if you are planning to do so as well you should now. From experience last year I tried to buy some of their decorations mid December and almost everything was gone, so be quick if you want to be in! You can find all the range as shown in the photos here . Scroll down for the beautiful photos and check my favorites below each one!

My fluffy duvets and pillows from Høie

November 16, 2018

Advertisement // Campaign in collaboration with Høie of ScandinaviaOnlydecolove 4(Promo code 20% off with code “Onlydecolove” in all Høie of Scandinavia also in Sweden )

I have wanted for a long time to post all the most asked questions I usually get in my email from you, but today I decided to go for one of the questions I get the most : Where are your duvets from and are they so fluffy or it is something you have done to them ?  I must admit I have made a copy paste answer for the information and you might have gotten it too :

My duvets are from Høie of Scandinavia , the model is Høie Saga and you can find it here.  If you want to achieve exactly the feel and look, the size is 140×220 and it is the warm duvet , Saga varm dundyne .

And really that’s all there is. I have done nothing to my duvets other than just occasionally fluff them by washing them , though I see no real difference from before washing and after. And mind you, I have been using mine for over two years now, they have not changed texture or “fluffiness”. Warm and soft yet crisp and airy ( plus Allergy-friendly recommended Asthma Allergy Nordic), I consider them the best duvets I have ever used and I dont see myself ever changing them, other than perhaps replace them with new but of the same version. They are available in both cool, medium warm, warm and child sizes, the warm for the winter and the cool for the summer are perfect combinations.

onlydecolove 2I know I will keep getting this question long after I have posted this, but I dont mind . I remember I was just a teenager when my best friend bought a duvet that had all the Høie characteristics, but I did not recall the brand back then and then, years later when I started looking for one of my own, I never found anything close to the characteristics I was looking for, until I bought the Saga warm duvets from Høie. That is a long time to wait so I understand why so many people want to know, I would as well. Also worth mentioning are the pillows I use, also from Høie, two  Saga high ( Allergy-friendly recommended Asthma Allergy Nordic), and two  Høie Frigg 350gr  filled with 100% white Siberian goose down feathers. All Høie products are made in Norway, in Brekstad, an hour with boat from Trondheim.

Onlydecolove 6Onlydecolove 7Onlydecolove 8To finish up the look as you see it today, I have dressed my bedroom with the new duvet covers Cecilie in Ivory  and two velvet pillowcases ( front velvet and back 100% cotton) Vanja in Oker. The Cecilie new line has impressed me a lot with its quality and softness. The extra fine cotton has a curling effect which means the fabric retracts and gives a natural relaxed expression. It also makes it feel thicker than plain cotton. In addition, the bed set is stone washed for extra softness. In occasion I have given you tips for really great quality cotton sheets that are budget friendly as well, Cecilie is probably the best I have seen, and not just from the budget friendly category ( in my opinion it could be well among much more expensive sets). The woolen blanket is also from Høie and you can find it here.

onlydecolove 5Onlydecolove 9Now for the promo suprise code, Høie has just opened their Swedish webstore at www.hoie.com/se and have given me 20% off to share with you, just use code “Onlydecolove” after you are done shopping! Its now a perfect opportunity if you wanted to shop duvets or pillows or sheets, dont miss up on it 😉 The code can be used in both Norway and Sweden.

Before I finish this post, I really want to highlight all of the green efforts of Høie, one of the reasons I love their products but also working with them. You can read more about it here and how Høie takes responsibility and acts, but also, you can also invest on their green duvets, that you can find here.

Høie Pure duvet is filled with white European 90% duckling –  Swan label ( Svanemerket) . Sleeping in , you sleep in one of the most natural and environmentally friendly insulation materials. The Swan label places strict demands on the entire product life cycle and is your guarantee of reduced climate stress, sustainable use of resources and a non-toxic everyday life. It’s good for the environment and your health! And as an added bonus, my loved Saga line is also Swan certified! Since I need my bed to be allergy free this is double good news for me!
