You may have seen her house before,
but not in a while and not like this. New colors, new combinations and
new furnitures. You can see Kirsten Visdal´s "new home" in Elle Decoration´s (the Norwegian one!) July edition which is out in late June.
Ten months has gone by since my last post, and time has sure flown by! I decided to enjoy my time as a new mom, and dedicated all my time that. Unread magazines piled up, no new blogposts were written, only a few new furnitures was made, and hardly anything new was done on the house
(incredible how much time these little ones take...). Now, my daughter is nine months, and I feel that it is time to do a little bit of "my stuff". Now it is back to work, reading magazines and searching for new inspiration :-).
Spring is here and a couple of weeks ago I "unpacked" all my gardening gear, pots and outdoor furnitures, and went to the nursery to buy some plants. Here´s the result!
Another feature that is out now (also done in the lovely apple orchard), and which made the cover, is a feature with twleve tips and ideas on how you can create a romantic and colorful environment with the optimal summer feeling in your own garden/backyard.
One of them a romantic swing made out of an old bamboo chair found in a local fleamarket.
The recipes and the "how to´s" can be found in this summer issue of BoligPluss which is out in the stores now.
I am trying not to buy everything new for the baby, and while searching the net for a bed/crib to renovate, I found this cool cradle. The cradle from little green factory/Green Lullaby is made out of corrugated cardboard, and is designed to cater for the babies first few months. It is light and easy to assemble/disassemble without any tools, and therefor perfect for travelling. Worried about the safety of it? Don´t worry, it is protected by a unique non-toxic fire retardant and meets the European safety standards!
Right outside my house, just divided by an old fence, is a wonderful apple orchard which is perfect for summery photoshoots (and great garden parties). Around this time last year, Tara and I moved some of my livingroom furnitures outside to create a colorful and romantic atmosphere. The topics was flowery, new fabrics and here are some of the pictures. Some of you might have seen it already as it is featured in Elle Decoration, Norway, which is out now. I am really happy how the pictures came out, and I guess Elle Decoration is too since it made the cover :-).
Norwegian based photographer. Loving everything exquisite and eyecandy. Beautiful images, great recipes, tasty food, cute things, smart solutions, good ideas. Old design, redesign and new thinking. Rust, objects with soul and a lots of history. When I am not taking pictures, I am busy renovating a big, old house from 1928.
Your comments are dearly appreciated. Critic (good or bad!) is the best way to improve :-)
If you wish to use images taken by me, I´ll appreciate if you contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you don´t I won´t be upset and I´ll let you use the image on your blog (NOT for commercial purposes!). But the criteria is to credit me (AND the stylist if there´s one) and link to my (our) website and/or blog.
