EVENTYR-BRUA I OSLO

Anker bru i Oslo, som krysser Akerselva og forbinder Grünerløkka og Sentrum, er vel noe av det mest norske vi har her i landet, og det er ikke uten grunn for at den blir kalt Eventyrbrua. På hvert hjørne står det oppført bronseskulpturer med motiver hentet fra Asbjørnsen og Moe sine kjente folkeeventyr og sagn. […]

FRAGRANCES – A TOUR MAP

Your great grandma had it on her dresser, so did your grandma and probably also your aunt Sophie. A nostalgia for days gone by, dating back to 1792 when the young businessman Wilhelm Muelhens received the secret recipe as a wedding gift from a monk, and soon after it was out on the market. The […]

MY ROOM FROM THE 70s

The 1970s were an interesting time for style and design. I was a teenager at that time, and remember with joy my new decorated room. A brown corduroy sofa and chair, a green table next to a couple of orange plastic furniture. From the ceiling a macramé with a green plant, and on the brown […]
