Oh So Sexy!

December 3, 2014


So I’m into Neybers again, and I just had to share this last room I designed! Seriously, this is the look and feel my dining-slash-living room would have if I had one today: Masculine with touches of whites, pops of teal and finished off with lots of plants. And the sexiest thing about the space? The floor-to-ceiling picture windows that let in the outdoors.

I love how easy it is to play around with furniture and accessories on Neybers. They have a constantly updated library of anything you can think of to design and decorate a room—from accessories to doors and windows. I love that you can add lighting effects as well! Every item in their library specifies its designer and where it can be found. It’s not just a platform for designers to express their creativity and taste, but it’s also a great marketing place for online stores and product designers. Brilliant, isn’t it?

Here are the key items of this oh so sexy! room …

Moving Forward

Kyrkjetangen – A Haven Nearby

September 20, 2014

Last Saturday, I did something brave: I took the bus to my sister’s and borrowed her bike for the week. I then biked home thinking I’d do just fine uphill—something I was clearly wrong about. I ended up having to push the bike for at least a third of the way back. Apparently, there was an easier route by the water, but I opted for Google Maps’ quickest route which didn’t turn out to be the quickest one after all, considering the uphill streets.

The intention was to bike at least every day of the week. I clearly overestimated my motivation for fitness. I’m on call for work at a kindergarten nearby, so I wasn’t sure which days I’d have free. I’m new to a 9-5 job, and I must say: it drains the energy out of you. (Out of me at least, and I don’t even work every day!) I don’t get how fit people, who work daily, are able to muster extra energy to work out after (or before) hours. I sure take my hat off to them!

Anyhow, I ended up having Monday and Thursday free. I haven’t mastered the art of cherishing free days yet, so Monday went to waste in terms of giving myself a ‘breather.’ So last Thursday, I knew I needed to give myself some me-time, and I spontaneously treated myself to a quick bike ride to a haven nearby: Kyrkjetangen.

Autumn in Old Bergen + The Discovery of its Coziest Café

September 6, 2014

• autumn blooms by Solstrand Interiør •

On this gloomy Saturday, my younger sister and I decided to take a trip into the city. Instead of hanging around the modern area, we decided to walk along Bergen’s old streets—along Hollendergaten and Lille Øvregate, to the left of Bergen’s beloved Bryggen (the wharf). And if it wasn’t for the smell of newly baked cinnamon rolls, we wouldn’t have chosen this very cozy bookshop café to settle down for lunch, dessert and a cup of chai latte …
