my scandinavian home: A pretty Norwegian space with inspiring touches

A pretty Norwegian space with inspiring touches

Thursday, 12 November 2015

This week has been all about Sweden, so I think it's about time we visited another Scandinavian country, don't you? As much as I'd love to be padding around this Norwegian cottage drinking slow-brewed coffee - we'll have to stick to visiting Norway in spirit. (Guh! one day, huh?!). This lovely home in Oslo belongs to Randi Mageli and has been beautifully captured by Filippa Tredal. It's actually fairly small (50 metres square to be precise) but what it lacks in size it makes up for in inspiration - fab paint colours (with shelving to match), and a mix of second hand finds and Scandinavian contemporary pieces. Lovely!

Filippa Tredal. Inspiration found via House of C with thanks.

It's nearly always the elements of surprise which catch my eye - in this case I'm loving the corner with the sheepskin throw, yellow cushion and a cactus!

I also like how Randi's painted the shelves the same colour as the wall - it really makes the items on display pop. It's simple to do too - just order a little extra paint and apply it to inexpensive wooden shelves from IKEA. Perfect! 

Is there anything in particular you love about this space?

A quick guide to a few of the items: EKTORP sofa,  Menu afteroom chair, DOCKSTA table, source a cosy white sheepskin throw here, Y print.

Other fab Norwegian spaces include the cosy and relaxed home of a blogger, a rustic cabin high up over the fjords, and a Norwegian home decorated for Christmas.

Have you ever visited Norway? I've been to Bergen - so beautiful!

Have a lovely day!
