Image above: This is my kitchen workspace. The cupboards are filled to the brim with props. It’s an Ikea kitchen and Ikea lightning on the ceiling .
Image above: A collection of my wooden backgrounds for styling, arranged on a beam from the very first apartment I bought in St Haugen in Oslo built in 1889. Branches were collected on the beach, and my favorite china pot in pale pink is from France, which I found in my parents’ basement.
Image above: More props arranged in a Billy book case from Ikea. Antique kitchen weight from my grandmother, Cathrineholm treasures from when my father worked as a designer there and my collection of old rolling-pins.
Image above: Some of my Hunter boots ready for rain in my little hallway with an antique bench borrowed from my brother Michael’s garden.
