At home with some of my favorite essentials

October 10, 2017


Since getting a bed in the bedroom (sneak peek of the bedroom)I feel the whole apartment has finally come together, it feels much more like home now than it did when I first moved in July. I love spending time in here now, and since I have been a little bit sick last few weeks I have been working from bed much more than I would normally do. I don’t have a speaker in Oslo for my bedroom so the new portable Beoplay P2 has become my best companion ( mine is in color Sand ). It doesnt have any controls on it, but tap it twice to pause any song ( double tap again to resume ) and shake it sideways to skip a song are all the controls I need 🙂  It also has a microphone so when I get calls I dont even need to pick up my phone! I always take it with me when I travel too, it is lightweight and then I can listen to music or podcasts or audio books while in my hotel room, its a win win. The sound is great as well for such a small speaker, it is now firmly on my essentials list.
To make the bedroom a little cosy, I like having a candle on the windowsill next to the bed (the bedroom has two big windows), and with some books and magazines, a mirror and a lamp the scene is almost complete.

On the window you might have noticed some products, they are from the Nuori face care line, the Perfecting face oil on the left and the Supreme moisture mask on the right. If you don’t know about Nuori already, apart from their super minimalistic design, what distinguishes them from other skincare is that their products are always fresh. Mine were mixed right before they were delivered and their ingredients are 100% natural. A lot of brands claim this to be true, but Nuori actually delivers, read more about it here if you want and I promise you , you will be converted. 

Last but not least my top favorite brand Aesop launched a new perfume! ( They are currently launching a new website , I will link to it as soon as it is up! ). When it comes to how it smells, you should really visit one of their stores, it is a little too masculine for me but I love how it smells on my other half 🙂

Bedroom Sneak Peek in Oslo

September 29, 2017


So much good response on Tuesdays post about the Thorvald Meyersgate apartment, thank you so much for all your kind words! I am so glad everyone loved this collab between me and Elisabeth Heier, we will be working on more things together so keep an eye for upcoming news! 


Today I wanted to take the opportunity and talk a little bit about last few weeks, I have fallen behind on the blog due to a lot of work, travelling etc, but I promise I will make it up going forward. I feel the blog is my own personal space that nothing affects it ( instagram changing the algorithm for example ), so I feel bad I haven’t been able to find time to update it more often last month. I am not using this as an excuse but if you are following me on instagram you know I have almost not been at home at all, so now I am so happy to finally get the time to work without distractions.  For the next couple of days, I have planned to finally show you where I have been in detail ( again sneak peeks of which I have shared on my instagram along with stories so if you dont follow me there, you really should!), what has caught my eye recently (favorites, places, just about everything really), and some new additions on the blog. I dont want to reveal too much but it has to do with something a lot of people have been asking me lately, so I hope it is going to be a welcome addition!


Finally having some free time has also led to being able to organise the apartment in Oslo a little bit more. It still has way to go until it is finished, but at least I got a bed and the bedroom is now my favorite place to spend time in! So far it is very simple of course but it still has a nice vibe, and really it is not going to be filled with things anyway. I am lucky that the apartment has a walk in closet so I dont need a rail for my clothes ( although I might regardless since I have one in mind that looks great), but I might instead use the space for a small office. And paint! I didnt let the owner paint the walls since I wanted to make my own decision on what colors! Either way, it wont take me too long to make up my mind, I only rent this apartment for a year and I want to make every week count. Tip : There always going to be sneak peeks on my instagram if you cant wait for a blogpost 😉

Spending time in the bedroom

June 14, 2017


 Ad // Sponsored post in collaboration with Room21.no

These past few weeks of constant travelling between Norway/Denmark/Sweden has taken a little bit of a toll on me and I found myself taken with the common cold/flu, probably a bug from the airplane/airport air. I have found a new appreciation in my bedroom, having to spend all day in it for several days has added to that profoundly. This should go without saying, making the bedroom a comfortable and familiar space to be in, but since I have spend even more time here I changed my side of the bed to fit my needs. 

I am sure you have seen glimpses on my instagram, I recently got 2 items from Room21.no  from their Menu selection (Menu is among just a few of the leading Scandinavian brands that can be found in Room21) , the Standard Bordlampe and the Jewelry Box in white oak. Never underestimate how useful a lamp can be next to you, no matter how many hours you spend in bed or not, this one sheds the softest light ( adjustable) , while the Jewelry box is really useful for anything you want to hide. I tend to take off all my accessories before I sleep and since my cat likes to play with everything, it is best to just hide them away. The box can be open or closed, it looks great either way, plus the clever design with the mirror makes it very versatile for quick touch ups in the morning. Danish design, you can hardly go wrong with it 🙂

Simple frame styling with Desenio and a 25% discount code.

June 6, 2017


Ad // Sponsored post in collaboration with Desenio.no

As I am packing to move in a few weeks I am constantly wondering what to take with me and how I will style the new apartment. Since it is a rental there are some restrictions although instead of being bothered by it I think it is actually quite fun to find solutions to work around any styling problems. One of the most common is hanging anything on the walls, but while some cannot be helped ( big furniture etc ) , some can have interesting solutions instead! When it comes to frames thankfully they look great on the floor just as much as on the wall, if anything I think I prefer them this way at this point. 

With the help of Desenio and their great variety of posters and frames I think I am off to a good start on making a nice little frame corner don’t you think? I started with a few frames and few foggy botanical posters and I will be adding more of this collection soon, I find the bigger this frame arrangement the better it looks. 

A small tip for you : Leave a few of the frames empty, it makes for a more delicate arrangement while at the same time it doesn’t look overly styled!

The frames I used are from Moebe and they can also be found at Desenio under their Frames category. When it comes to botanical posters they can all be found under the Botanical category . My top picks and the ones I chose as shown in this post are : 

1 | Misty Poster  2 | Palm Silhouette  3 | Foggy Poster


 As a bonus I am happy to share a code with all of you that Desenio created for all my readers. Use  code “ONLYDECOLOVE” for 25% off your order at Desenio between 6th – 8th of June ( not valid for handpicked/frames ). Since the code is active for only two days this is the best time to to update your photo wall, or if you prefer my way, create a new frame corner in your living room or bedroom or even at the office! 



Edit :  Please be aware that Desenio online store had some technical difficulties on Tuesday and Wednesday but it is up and running today! This is the last day to take advantage of the “ONLYDECOLOVE” code so hurry if you need a wall or frame to floor update!
