last weeks in the house


been trying to enjoy the last weeks in the house, before we are moving into the apartment.
it`s a little strange... i am sort of in between. glad when it`s all over.

am having `vacation`with my kids, one more week to go. we are just at home and are having a good time together. the weather is a little unpredictable, so we haven`t really been to the beach yet.

in the meantime i have been planning how to furnish and decorate the new place. it`s incredible, but always possible to turn a place into something special and personal. fun:D

just showing you some last pictures from the house...

my cousin is coming to visit today, he came all the way from southern germany to norway on his bike.
haven`t seen him in ages, so that is really nice:)

soon i`ll have to start packing..uuuuaaaa!
this time i want to try to plan a little better beforehand;)

don`t we all love moving?!;)

have a great week, if you are working and sweating or laying on the beach:)

how does an interior designer dress?


inspired by so many other interior bloggers talking about clothes i want to focus on the typical dress code for interior designers this week:) yes!

to put it short: someone described it as "funky yet sophisticated".

i have to admit: many of us work so hard, that they don`t really have the time to be preoccupied with clothes. therefore they/we dress quite boring sometimes.

but: i wanted to identify the typical clothing style, so we leave out the boring days;)
the black blouse seemes inevitable.
many combine jeans with a black blouse or dark sleeveless top.
pattern is also popular in tops.


high heels (in black of course). black dresses or - my suggestion- the black/dark/dark patterned jumpsuit:)


i also see vintage sweaters in bold colours and patterns combined with jeans.


the style is a combination of creativity/individuality and elegance. of course we are influenced by the architects clothing style - black black black- and the product designer style - funky.

actually it is quite an exiting mixture.

bold rings also seem to be popular. for meetings with clients they like to throw on a blazer to either spice up or tone down the rest of the clothes.

i put together collages in case you want the look:

 this is my interpretation of the interior architects clothing style:) i want to go shopping now!

have a great week!
