Reason for re-using this photo in the text!
Hurra, bloggen fyller ett år i dag! Dårlig gjort å droppe norsk versjon da sikkert, men jeg har en deadline på plateinnspillingen og fyrer derfor løs bare på engelsk i dag. Enjoy!
Translation: Exactly a year ago I grabbed the camera for the first time, and the blog celebrate its first anniversary today! It’s not an expensive or new camera, but a mid second hand, and I started. Maybe I should have used it a little more than ten minutes before I started editing and creating a blog. But why? I’m not the practice type, I don’t have the patience, neither the energy. I searched for something which could give me some peace in mind and flow. I could hardly remember the feeling of flow. A bonus would be to master something new, something without rules or expectations.
Lots has happened with the blog – I started to translate it, I made a new design to it, it was nominated for the Amara Interiors Blog Awards, I’ve had some collaborations, been featured some places (for example in Abigail Ahern’s “house crush”, and I’m actually going to be inside Abigail’s pad for a whole day next week!!). I also created an Instagram account this summer and I’ve got in touch with some really nice people. And maybe we will see Villa Betula on a cover in close future too! But most important: I’ve managed to keep it as a place I find mindfullness and flow, and I’ve also been a little more personal then I first thought I would be. I found out I just have to be me. Take it or leave it.
At the same time the house has turned into a dark interiors home (seven down, several to go!), and the feeling of the house is totally different and a lot better. I feel sure about what I like and not, and I feel that there’s a kind of a signature growing in what I do, and that’s maybe the best part of it. I strive to give you as much as possible and as good as possible, but music has got lots of my attention lately since we’re in the middle of recording our second album. So finishing for example the bedroom has taken much longer than expected… But I’m nearly there!
The reason for the photo above is that you, from this one-year-day, can buy this painting (made by moi) plotted on a high quality canvas! Either in this large original size (which is a bout 140 x 155 cm) or in medium size (about 100 x 90 cm). Go big I say! I have not taken the time to make a shop-button or taken fab photos of it yet, so if you want to know more: e-mail me at email@example.com or follow me and message me on Instagram.
Thanks for reading my blog by the way, it does something good to me…
