my scandinavian home: The perfect Norwegian home for a summer's day

The perfect Norwegian home for a summer's day

Wednesday, 6 August 2014

When the sun shines in Sweden I feel the need to spend the entire day outside (I guess this isn't the case when you live somewhere warm and sunny all year round?!). But there is an exception to this. The Norwegian home of blogger and photographer Elisabeth Heier is one of those spaces where you could easily flit between inside and outside on a beautiful day, depending on your mood. Not only is the home bright and airy but it also has several different places you can sit and relax with a book or magazine - window nook, dining table, outdoor terrace....and still enjoy the warmth of natural sunlight and the nature beyond. I could spend a summer's day here could you?

Elisabeth Heier with kind permission

Elisabeth is such a wonderful photographer and her blog is almost entirely made up of pictures she has taken of her own home. So impressive!

See previous posts from her home herehere and here.

I spy a few classic items I love: Knoll Diamond chair and Eames side chair DSR.

I hope you have a lovely Wednesday!


  1. Such a lovely palette with this home

  2. For Portuguese parameters, a country with plenty of Sun in the winter (but not this year heheehe), a House so clean, so white so naked seems to us a bit too cold, too fresh; this is because the houses here are not all climatize (with air conditioned or fireplace) as in the Nordic countries. A house like this would have to be dressed in carpets, curtains, blankets, cozy wood. But that is precisely what I love about nordic decor: this lightness, this white, black, green (basic colors), this simplicity. This is a house where I'd spend perfectly - not a summer's day, but every summer and winter as well!

  3. Hmm, I think I need vacation on house like this..right now!!! Beautiful and so cozy..

  4. Hmmm. we cannot see much from this house, can we?

    1. Hi Mia, in the post I put two links to further images of the home, so in total you should be able to see about 20 images of the home. If you would like to see more (which i can understand as it is such a beautiful home) you can also click over to Elisabeth's blog which features daily images of her living space. Hope this helps!

  5. My brother lives in Norway and they have a great way of creating such a calm ambiance to their homes such as this one - gorgeous
