my scandinavian home: A charming norwegian home in green, grey and cognac

A charming norwegian home in green, grey and cognac

Friday, 16 October 2015

Hello Friday! There's just time to squeeze in one more fabulous home tour this week - that of Henriette Amlie Kalbekken and her two children in Oslo, Norway. Henriette is a freelance interior designer and stylist as well as an avid painter. She also drives the award winning Norwegian blog Designlykke (which is written in english - yay!). Henriette's home is in a state of constant change (no exaggeration - this is how her home looked this time last year). Right now her home is a beautiful blend of greys, greens and white with a delightful cognac touch. Look closely for lots of innovative and inspiring ideas too....

What a wonderful home, don't you think?!

Loving how an old leather handbag has been used as a plant pot! Great idea...

Here's a round-up of where items are from: the paint in the kitchen is 'dark lyon' from Nordsjø. Sitting room: vintage sofa by Erik Jørgensen, side table by Bolia. Hallway: Muuto dots. Hay bag. Bedroom: AJ lamp, linen bedding.   Children's room: the green colour is 'intense paris', shelf from Elfa. FYI there's a charming vintage school bench for sale here  - hurry though, they only have one! Others available here.

Impeccable style clearly runs in the family as her sister also has a lovely home - check out a tour of her sitting room here.

In case you feel like taking it a little easy today - after all it is POETS day right?!...Here are some links I love from around the web:

Would you dare to go bold on your walls like this?!

 I love rue magazine's list of favourite breast cancer awareness products (that rug?!).

I spent a good few minutes trying to work this picture out - is it the entire neighbourhood that's at an angle - or the girl?

I don't know about you but I'd quite like to kick off the weekend with a 'Harvest Sparkle'?! And then I might just tuck into some yummy pumpkin soup followed by a chocolate cake or dark chocolate and peppermint pie. Mmmmm! Fancy joining me?!

Back tomorrow with an exciting new book review which includes a home tour of one of my favourite Danish artists! See you then!

  1. I would love to join you for Pumpkin soup...What is peppermint pie? Funny but those are the colors in this house--Ha!

  2. I always love the pictures on this blog and that is because I probably love the European house 'look'.

    I do have a few questions though about the blog 1) how do you find the houses to photograph and write about and 2) do you take the photographs yourself?

    Congrats on a fab blog. :-)
