In the news (sort of)...

One of the things I love the most about my job, is that I get the opportunity to meet interesting people and shoot uncommon places.

Not being norwegian, I don't really know if the person that I'm shooting for, is famous or not. It just happens to be another assignment that deserves the same attention and focus as the next one.  But when my client (Anders Nykkelmo Solem from Ihus Majorstua) told me that I was shooting for Jo Nesbø, it certainly made my day, eventhough I've never read any of his books!

Here is the article that Hegnar On Line published the 29th of August 2011 :

It made me even happier to know that the house was sold for 650.000 Kr over hhv.

I really liked this place. Perfect location and endless possibilities.

Despite not having any coins to pay the parking - in that part of the city, parkingmeters do not accept credit cards - or asking if all that DJ equipment she had in the living room belonged to a friend...she was extremely nice and friendly.

Yep, you gotta love this girl... talented, beautiful and friendly. Here's the article that Kjendis published when she was selling her apartment.

Another article by Hegnar On Line:

As it often happens with me, the kitchen was my favorite part of the apartment.

Sometimes is not the owner that makes the news, but the sale itself. Again this time happen with the same megler as from Jo Nesbø's house, Anders Nykkelmo Solem, from Ihus Majorstua.

The article was about an apartment that was sold before the visning. Here is the story by Aftenposten.

This week Aftenposten published an article about an enebolig that is on sale for 4.5 Mill Kr. 
The megler is Ole Christian Malterud Akre from the DnB office at Lambertseter.

Change, Change, Change.

When I started this blog I had the idea to reach as many people as possible. Homeowners trying to sell, people that appreciate interiors, meglers in need for the latest news in the eiendom business and wealthy housewives living in Wisteria Lane.

Well, maybe the last part is not totally true, but the point is that blogging is really time consuming! So from now on, I won't be updating the Nyheter section.

I apologize to the people that found the news section useful, but I simply don't have the time to update it as often as I'd like to.

Having said that, I hope you still find the blog entertaining and useful and keep coming back for more.

I love everything about kitchens. The fact that they're a gathering place rather than a practical one, makes them so appealing to me, and this one, despite being the average size in Oslo, had something special. I really liked it.

Often seen holding curtains, this detail looked really cool hanging from the door.

Simply because I liked it :)

Another cozy kitchen.

Yet another :)

A few details in a rather white and gray bathroom could make a huge difference!

You gotta love Arne Jacobsen chairs!

I absolutly loved this gang! Perfect color coordination.

Keep it simple!!

Back to business.

Like in any good relation, once you find something you love, it just get's better with time. This is exactly how I feel about photography. After almost three weeks of not shooting eindom I was starting to get relentless.

Sure I was having lots of fun under Brazil's blazing sun,  but I at the same time I felt something was missing. To mitigate that sensation I started shooting windsurfers, sunsets, people and even dokeys, but nothing gave me the satisfaction I get when shooting interiors.

I don't really want to brag on how much I love what I do, or how much enjoyment I get out of shooting interiors, just wanted to say, that it feels great to be home.

Here are some of my favorite shots of the week. Hope you enjoy them!

This kitchen was nicely staged. The flowers, the books, everything was in the right place.

Really loved these skateboard decks. Uncommon and cool stuff.

Perfect example of the "size does't matter"  :). Small and cute bathroom.

This place was full of good vibes. Can't tell what it is, just plain good taste, I guess.

Feminine and classy.

Same place as the previous shot.

This place was a lot of fun to shoot. Love the pictures hanging from the wall.

Mirrors are great for making cool compositions.
