Yippi yey, we’re a month away from Christmas! I can’t wait for the days off, the snow, cocoa in bed, evenings by the fire (unfortunately we don’t have a fireplace anymore, but friends of us do), reading something soothing (after many years when December meant exams, I like unwinding with Agatha Christie or British crime), walking the bear, making cookies and exchanging gifts. I put together a little list with what would make me happy to give and receive, if only the word budget hadn’t been invented and money was no issue.
I love me a piece of pottery and this fancy plate by Anette Krogstad is right up my alley. You can purchase it at Norway design. Continue reading
Vuong has finally opened his first store in Markveien 28 in Oslo and it’s amazing! I’m telling you, he’s so talented and his esthetics are so on, it’s crazy! I felt so proud I shed a couple of tears! Hopefully it will be a great success, I know I’ll do my bit to advertise for his products!
For all of you, lovers of vintage and mid-century design, I have a secret to share: Second Love from Bergen! ❤ It´s the kind of stylish, refined shop I´d run myself, if I was that much into sales and people, a perfect mix of high-end designer wear, Norwegian 70´s classics and hand-crafted products.

The long-awaited moment is finally here: Bo bedre, one of Norway´s biggest interior magazines suggests EAM´s products in their Christmas issue! We´re hoping this will be the break-through we´ve hoped for all this time! Take a look and pick your choice! My husband makes the slickest handcrafted leather accessories you´ve seen in ages!
I just discovered Gridy design from Norway and I´m loving them already! They´ve designed for both Menu and Northern Lighting. Here are some of their fab contributions to the designer world. The mirror is on my wish list already.
With September comes autumn and so I envision myself in a cosy couch with a lovely woolen plaid and a cup of cocoa. Since we threw away our old sofa a two seats couch is now doing the job and we´re not thrilled with it. It´s too small to sit comfortably, not to mention there´s no room for napping. However, I don´t despair. I´ve set my eyes on this baby from Andreas Engesvik, I drool whenever I see it. 😉
I just found the perfect couch, too! I need to check with my better half, but I´ll manage to convince him if he doesn´t see things my way! This summer, things will change around here! No more half solutions accepted and a major clean-up is due! For the ones of you following me for a while you know the limited edition PH-lamp is on the top of my list, almost before the telephone invoice (haha) and now I can start saving for my dream couch, too! The Plank sofa is a cooperation between the Norwegian Knudsen/Berg/Hindenes&Myhr and the Danish dk3 and Dinesen. The latter are very famous for their incredible hard wood floors, take a look here. What do you think? I´m so excited I´m out of words!
