Winter by the Black Sea

In my desire to cope with my severe winter apathy and in my longing for the mother country, however far and cold and unfriendly, I stumbled upon the photographic work of Dan Cristian Mihailescu and I found some deliverance.Skjermbilde 2017-01-10 10.40.27.pngIt’s the deserted landscapes that appeal to me, you get the feeling that when winter sets in, human presence recedes. In its desolation, the beach and its rocks seem to cling to life in a desultory manner. Skjermbilde 2017-01-10 10.41.13.pngI long for an empty field, where winters come and go and leave only traces of seagull steps in the snow. Skjermbilde 2017-01-10 10.42.29.pngskjermbilde-2017-01-10-10-43-31

Yayoi Kusama

If you haven´t had the chance to see the exhibition yet, you should! I´ve been meaning to go for ages and I´m happy to say I can finally check it off my list!

Of course, we could have picked a better day, Sundays are busy and there were queues and kids everywhere, but then I´m not the very artsy type, so I didn´t need ages to see everything, I was happy to take in the atmosphere and get dizzy from all the polka dots. 😉13174112_10153581322056711_4753470620611204367_n Continue reading

Parisian Apartment

Although living in Norway for 15 years will definitely affect your perception of style, Parisian apartments remain the embodiment of chic for me. A sucker for all things bourgeois and at the same time a lover of clean lines, I find myself drawn to quirky, eclectic abodes, somewhat eccentric and at the same time where the owner is not trying too hard.

Daphné Desjeux and Dorothée Delaye are the interior architects who renovated this 110m2 place and I think they did a marvellous job! Take a look!
