Last night in a stylish city loft:
Hilarious decorations and delicious white fish lined the tables,
as the design agency ELLE mELLE in Ålesund celebrated its 15th birthday in style.
Business partners and clients were invited to ELLE mELLE´s inspiring offices.
Live music, sipping wine, mingling, meeting new people, getting tons of input…
How cool is this mood board?
The girls working at ELLE mELLE always make me feel good about visiting.
And boy do the girls know how to design!
Take a look at ELLE mELLE´s website here.

The above is 2,41 minutes from the film Lysleite, made by the skilled photographer Tor Siverstøl.
I recommend to click here to watch the entire film about the light and polar night in Norway.
I´ve seen the film dozens of times, and find it very inspiring. To me, living in the snowy mountains through winter, observant of dark and light, has become an adventure… I haven´t even longed for summer yet. (Like a miracle, that is:) Maybe I´ve learned from the artists interviewed in the film, or most likely: Learning from nature itself, as it tends to put me in a state of serenity, here and now.
I believe you will enjoy the film Lysleite even though you don´t understand Norwegian. Just let the images do the talking.
In Ålesund City this afternoon:
Strolling along the pavement.
Watching the rooftops.
Smelling the fishboats.
Sensing the snowmelt.
Last night at Anno Restaurant/ Ålesund:
Anno is located in one of the old houses by the water.
The feel of the place is modern, yet charming.
Tables are wooden, chairs soft, colors warm and windows tall.
In the middle of the ceiling a candelabra in glass and white draws my attention.
The writings on the wall deliver a message.
A reminder of time and presence.
I notice how the napkins match the walls.
The salty aroma of the fish dish.
The taste of the dry white wine.
A mix of flavors in which I mindfully treasure.
