When I first saw the new cookware series , it was love at first sight! The stunning new series consisting of pots and pans in cast iron and stainless steel knives with beautiful details in birch, will with no doubt look good in any kitchen.

But these products are more than just beautiful; The pots and pans in cast-iron with wooden elements were developed to achieve outstanding results at both high temperature frying and slow cooking of meals. They are also finished with an innovative Thermium™ mineral treatment, which makes them durable and easy to care for. I love that!

The Norden knives has been constructed from premium materials according to traditional Finnish knife-making metods. The knives are as you can see finished with beautiful details made of heat-treated Finnish birch wood, which is repeated in the cast-iron cookware for a harmonious look. The knives blades are made of premium quality highcarbon stainless steel for excellent sharpness and durability.

Here you see one of the Norden pots and two of the knives in my kitchen. Beautiful and in high quality  – a great combo, if you ask me!

You can check out the whole new series on .

Relaxing days up in the mountains

We have spent the last two weekends at the cabin, and it has been amazing to spend some relaxing days up in the mountains. After a busy start of the Autumn with a lot of styling and photoshoots for different companies it´s lovely to drive up here and just disconnect from the world a few days. Just enjoying the silence and beautiful nature.

12 autumn favorites

I´m happy to say that you now can find a lot of new beautiful products in Xnot Shop – all handpicked by me as favorites for the home (and some even for the body..haha). Here are some autumn favorites + items on my wishlist. I hope you like them : )



1. Let´s start with the lovely Wicker lamp by HK Living. This lamp will definitely set the right autumn mood!
2. Candleholders are a must during autumn/winter. The Balance candle holder by Ferm Living is on my wishlist.
3. The ultimate cosy chair! How cool is this Little Petra chair from &Tradition? Designed in 1938 by Viggo Boesen.
4. Tekla has the most amazing bedding and I would love to try their new linen bedsheets in sand grey.
5. This scented candle pretty much speaks for itself. Hygge by Skandinavisk is an easy way to create “hygge”
6. With autumn comes dryer skin, but I bet this Grown Alchemist Soothing Body Gel-Lotion does wonders for the skin.
7. I love the Shadow Play tealight holder for the wall! Designed by the Norwegian Falke Svatun for Menu.
8. How cool isn´t this Faberge print? Simple, yet very decorative on the wall.
9. I love jewelry by Pernille Corydon and would love to have this beautiful necklace around my neck this fall.
10. The John Derian Picture book is a New York Times bestseller. A perfect book to enjoy in front of the fireplace.
11. I´m dreaming of a trip to New York this autumn and the Cereal guides share the best tips!
12. My best styling tip for autumn is sheepskins in chairs and/or in the couch. Available in different colors here.

Happy weekend, everyone!


I´ve always been a fan of the Danish furniture brand , and I´m loving their new designed by Jakob Wagner that has now moved into our home.

Montana Free is a new kind of furniture for a new way of living – a flexible freestanding system that can easily be rearranged or expanded whenever you want.
The shelf is designed to last but also to evolve. Because life changes and so will your needs.

The shelving system is available in 12 compositions with or without interposed shelves in 4 colors and optional panels in 8 colors. An ideal way to store/showcase your things in different rooms!

Here you see the Montana Free in the color 02-Fjord with a panel in 123-Grey in my home. It´s nice, don´t you think?

Nordpeis Me wall

Jeg har vært på sin presselansering i dag og kan si at de som vurderer ny peis har noen spennende nyheter å glede seg over!

Eventet inneholdt blant annet et innholdsrikt foredrag av interiørguruen Halvor Bakke som er ambassadør for Nordpeis. Han delte litt om sine siste prosjekter og kom med mange gode interiørtips til oss. Det er alltid godt med litt påfyll!

Showrommet til Nordpeis


Av selve nyhetene som ble lansert må jeg si jeg likte spesielt godt disse favorittene – alle tre ganske så unike av sitt slag.

Den første er som er et praktisk modulsystem. Med dette systemet setter du sammen den innsatsen du ønsker (innsyn fra 2 sider eller 3 sider) og moduler avhengig av hva du ønsker å oppbevare. Du kan velge mellom en stor og en liten modul og ha de åpne eller med dører av stål eller eik. Selve modulene kommer i sort eller hvit, og uansett hva du velger er det ingen tvil om at du får et stilrent og tidløst design.

Nordpeis Box

Den andre favoritten er en del av den nye Me by Nordpeis serien og heter Me Wall. er den første vegghengte ovnen til Nordpeis som mildt sagt gir et ganske så unikt inntrykk. Bare se på det første bildet i bloggposten. Tøff, ikke sant?  Jeg har ikke sett noe tilsvarende før, og denne løsningen gir ganske mange nye muligheter for hvordan man plasserer ildstedet i huset (så lenge man har pipe der).

Den tredje favoritten er også en variant av , og heter . Denne ovnen er Nordpeis sin første takhengte ovn, og en kan trygt si den blir midtpunktet hvorhen man plasserer den i hjemmet eller hytta. Som med Box serien får man her et tidløst design, men i motsetning til Box er mer plassbesparende.

Uansett, tre fantastisk flotte ovner og jeg er glad for å se at vi Norge markerer seg innen design – også av ildsteder.

Hvilken er din favoritt?
