Inspiration for Christmas gifts from Ellos

December 11, 2018

Ad // In Collaboration with EllosThis year I decided to divide my wishlist from Ellos in 3 parts. First comes beauty, then fashion, then home, so there is a little bit of everything for everyone. With prices ranging from 100NOK to 3000NOK these will be ideal presents for any occasion and for any family member or friend!

:: Beauty ::  Very surprised to see that Ellos brought Grown Alchemist and The Ordinary , I fully endorse any item but do try the thickening shampoo and conditioner from Grown Alchemist and dont miss out on the serums from The Ordinary.

:: Fashion :: Items that should not miss from any capsule wardrobe, Adidas sneakers, a stylish sport parka (this one from Odd Molly ) and finally a neutral make up bag , this one from Day.

:: Home :: Everybody needs a big enough bedspread to cover the whole bed and also use as a blanket, and it is rare to find one that covers both functions while being big enough and looking great. This one from Ellos own line in grey beige is everything I was looking for (get the 260×260). A lamp is also something that will always be welcomed, the Gibson table lamp is quite a catch (only 214NOK) . Last but not least if you know someone is looking for a bar stool, the Bar stool Today with birch with back and seat of rattan is perfect.

My favorites and gift ideas from Høie

December 2, 2018

Ad // Campaign For Hoie of Scandinavia

Today I am sharing a few ideas for presents from Høie for either your loved ones or yourselves. I have been so impressed by the quality of these Norwegian made products, and the ethos of the company ( I talk more about that here) , and with competitive prices I think they make for great gift. Høie has just opened their Swedish webstore at (soon in Denmark too) and have given me 20% off to share with you, just use code “Onlydecolove” after you are done shopping. I am sure you can find many options you will love but here are few of my favorite combinations!

1 :: As seen in my bedroom recently, Cecilie is on top of my favorites. Mine is in Ivory but there are many colors to choose from. The feel of these sheets is so great , 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. I combined Celilie with the Vanja velvet pillowcases, again many colors to choose from but I went for a combo of Blue and Okra. Velvet on one side, cotton on the other, I turn them on the cotton side to sleep then flip them in the morning for the velvet to show. This way both the velvet side will last longer and look clean, but also I get to enjoy sleeping on the cotton side. No need to change the pillows , these are not just for show! For a final touch, I added a woolen blanket in a  light pattern, find it here.

For duvets and pillows I recommend the Saga series ( find my duvet here and my pillows here). Warm and soft yet crisp and airy ( plus Allergy-friendly recommended Asthma Allergy Nordic), I consider them the best duvets I have ever used. All Høie duvets have the Swan label ( Svanemerket) . 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!

2 :: For my second option, I recommend something that you might not expect to find in a contemporary bedroom, Høie Satin sheets. It is probably because people believe satin does not photograph so well (not ture), that we dont see it as often in editorials, I myself decided to use it in the 4 stylings we did for the winning bedroom back in september (see it here) and I think it looked fantastic.Why sleep in satin sheets? Satin supports healthy skin and hair while we sleep. It boosts your beauty game more than more traditional bedding materials because while other materials may tug at your hair follicles and strip your skin of natural, important oils, satin provides a smooth sleep surface. Skin and hair gently glide across as you catch sleep, reducing friction and leaving your skin and hair hydrated. This is key in helping to reduce bedhead, hair breakage, fine lines and wrinkles and dull, dry skin.  Try sleeping with just a satin pillowcase and you will see the difference in the first night only. Combine your satin combo with extra satin pillowcases from Høie in white (or buy them individually), or choose any other color. I prefer white for extra pillowcases so I can use them in any color or material combo. As for a blanket recommendation, I would choose one from the Rondeslottet series,with colors inspired by the natural landscape.

Remember now you also have an extra 20% off using the code  “Onlydecolove” after you are done shopping, and if you shop now you will get them guaranteed before Christmas!

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!
