Pine walls in design home

20CopyrightAnnikenZahlFurunesTanja og Jarle Home3CopyrightAnnikenZahlFurunesTanja og Jarle Home_doc6m8zmb6msuuruuzso12  Pine. Hated but loved.

A beautiful and natural material. So healthy for our indoor climate! Unfortunately if becomes darker with time.

But you can wash it whiter. Or brighten it it other solutions.

This family in Trondheim loves pine. Their home is litteraly embraced with this warm norwegian wood. And furnished with vintage treasures and new scandinavian design.

Read more about it here in Bergens tidende!

Or in Aftenposten (Bolig section) tomorrow, Saturday 3 Sept!

Porcelain nostalgia


I have a thing for porcelain mugs. The one I chose is chosen by the mood I am in. All my guests chose too.

This one is an oldie. It reminds me of my grandparents. This one has Bestemor printed on it, which means Granny. Remember in the early 80`ties, my years on the small island Leka, every grandparent had these kind of mugs. Guess they sold them at the local Samvirkelag! (store).

Hold on to those childhood memories! They are so valuable.

Have a lovely day!

Birthday table setting


Setting the table for my birthday dinner today.

Having a few friends over. I do love birthdays!

The tablesetting is so easy. Roses in different pinks and peach, put in glass vases, glasses and bowls.  A white tablecloth. White dishes. Keep it simple.

It`s good to get older. Wiser. Understand things I haven`t understood.

Feeling grateful today too. For life, friends & family, good heatlh. Having clothes to wear, food to eat. For peace in the streets. A roof over my head. And for finding joy in the simplest things!

Happy birthday to me!

And a lovely evening to you!

From Rosendal with love,

Green interior

DSC_1408 DSC_1401

As I mentioned in my last post one of my recent stylingjobs was to furnish an appartment for the norwegian tv channel NRK. Six people are going to live in it for 3,5 weeks. So I had to make a style that fitted them all. I didn`t meet them before they moved in! NRK wanted a young styling with a retro schwung.

This appartment and the tv program `Skapet` will be on NRK around spring 2016.

Here is another of one of the six bedrooms. I couldn`t make several similar rooms & styles. I had to make each and every one different. Give it personality. Add a little color. And I do love mixing pattern, texture and different shades of the same color. This one turned out green. My inspiration came from the picture below, a bedroom at my friends summerhouse in North Trøndelag. Even used this picture blown up on the wall!

The other bedrooms have a hint of blue, orange, turquoise, puple and yellow.

More rooms coming. Just keep following!
