Today, I stopped by Christine Hærra's home for a cup of tea, and to discuss an upcoming project.  If you don't already know Christine, she's probably the most talented stylist in Norway, with an eclectic and colorful style. She's incredibly good with colors.

Her home is filled to the rim with amazing flea market finds, interesting color combinations and a big dose of humor.

And I'm jealous.

Because it's SO perfect!

I could move right in and not change a thing!

If you want to see more pics from her home, click here, or visit her blog here.

(still jealous)

Color Inspiration on a Friday

Net-a-Porter's Natalie Massenet is totally acing this fantastic outfit, and it really is all about the clutch. 

Not to mention that it's just, so, so, so ME!

*heading over to ebay to hunt for vintage clutches*

PS - the colors in this pic could easily be transferred to interiors. Already have a palette in mind...!

I Also Want This Wall

Talk about everyday glamour ;)

I Won! (kind of...)

Actually, I DIDN'T WIN, but I totally should have!!

This is what happened;

I entered a contest (for like the first time EVER!), and submitted the name I thought would be perfect for the print below, like two seconds after I got the e-mail.

My suggestion was "Take a Bow".


But I didn't.. Someone obviously beat me to it, and I'm sulking. Totally should have won! (the winner got one of the numbered prints)

It's a beautiful piece of art isn't it? Now I want it! (and as usual, I'm on a shopping ban)

You, on the other hand, can get it here.

Happy Wednesday!!

Kitchen Update (And With Pics Too!)

It's still not finished, but from some angles, it actually looks semi descent! The lighting in the pics is not perfect, but I'm not in a photoshop mood today..

The cabinets are Mano high gloss from Danish Kvik (stil covered in plastic since we're not finished). On the backsplash we chose marble tiles, but in a warm beige tone instead of the more popular Carrara. The pulls/hardware is from B&B Sweden.

The brass tray was a flea market find, that cost me about $5.

Can you tell that I'm in love?

My favorite everyday china from Elinno.

So what do you think? Like it?

Monogrammed Iphone Cover (FINALLY, a colorful phone!!)

My iphones lasts me about 6 months before they for some mysterious reason stop working. I'm on my third iphone 4, and have wowed to make this one last for at least 12 months!

I've been wanting a monogrammed Iphone case for like EVER, and a few weeks ago, I finally to the time to sit down and work out the design. I love anything monogrammed, so I knew that it had to have my inititals on it.

Other than that, I'm hooked on red, coral and pink together, so I wanted that too. AND I wanted a touch of Scandinavia on it. I have to say, I'm super excited about the result!! 

What do you think about it? Would you want a personalized iphone cover?

Happy Weekend!!!


UPDATE: I got the phone case from THIS shop on etsy :)

A Bathroom With a Brass Ceiling!

Need I say more??

The effect is simply amazing in this Swedish bathroom, isn't it?? 

TIP: This room already has pretty high ceilings, but if you DON'T high gloss and shiny materials is the perfect way to fake it ;)
