What can you tell us about yourself, in few words?
I am a thirty one year old and I am married to Kenneth. We live in an old loft in the centre of Oslo with our two kids, 
Ole (3 year) and Sophia (1 year).
Presently I'm staying home with Sophia, and I am also starting up with my own business as an interior designer.
Where do you live?
In June we will be moving from the city to a house on the countryside ...
Although I love so much living the urban life, I'm looking forward to sitting outside my kitchen with my morning 
coffee and watch the kids playing in the garden.
How would you define your interior style?
It is actually very difficult to define it, but I would say that it is a mix of things I love with Scandinavian, 
oriental and industrial style items ... It is indeed a very personal mix.
I like when the base it's bright and white, with grey, black and wooden details.
I've had recently a crush on for the pink colour ... not the neon one, but the dusty pale
palette. I can't think right now on a prettier colour.
Do you have any designer icon at home?
I have the Eames RAR chair, and so many designer icons on my wish list!

Do you have any favourite item at home?
My Nespresso coffee machine and the milk frothier!
Staying at home with a baby means to drink a lot of coffee which has to be really good.
My husband bought the milk frothier only a few months ago ... I really don't understand why we haven't 
bought it sooner.
Could you describe in few words your professional experience?
I am an interior designer. So far I have been working with retail design, and interior design, both for private 
homes and public areas.
When did you create your blog? What is the purpose of it?
I have started blogging in August 2011 after reading many interior blogs.
My passion for interior and photography was the reason I started, I wanted to share my creative work and 
inspire others. I discovered soon that the blogosphere it's really a nice place to be part of, and I have met 
so many nice people.

What do you like doing when you are at home? (any creative activity, any hidden talent)?
When I am not with my family and have some spare time, I love taking photos, it makes me forget about time 
and space ... Although the best way for me to relax it's baking something. I also love doing craft activities with 
my children, I hope that in the future they will enjoy as much as I do being creative.
How do you like to surround yourself at home?
O course I like to be surrounded by my friends and family!
In addition I always try to have fresh flowers on the dinner table which gives the hint of color needed in my 
monochrome home.
We have old wooden beams going through our apartment, which demands a lot of attention therefore I am keeping 
the rest of the interior quite calm.
What is the last item you bought? (in the design or fashion's field)
A Mark Eden Schooley lamp for our new home.
Do you have any favorite perfume?
Narciso Rodriguez, for Her
