A beautifully serene Norwegian space

I've had the pleasure of visiting Norway twice in the last six months. Both times I've been truly amazed; not only is it the most beautiful country on earth, the people are so warm too! I've been welcomed into many homes - and felt truly inspired by what was within (you can see the results in my book The Scandinavian Home: Interiors inspired by light out soon - exciting!). Although I've never had the pleasure of meeting Norwegian architect and blogger Katerina Dima in person, we've been in regular contact over mail (us bloggers do like to keep in touch!). Originally from sunny Athens, Greece, Katerina lives in Sogndal with her husband and cat. Despite her background, she has always been drawn to the Scandinavian aesthetic and chosen to decorate her home in a 'cool tone palette' using soft greys and fresh white, adding a touch of yellow to the paint to add warmth. Sheer fabrics and natural textures such as wood, cotton, linen and wool add a wonderful softness to the space. Let's take a peek inside!

I absolutely love the canopy over the bed - it's dream like!

Is there anything you love in particular about Katerina's home?

Get the look: bedroom - Skagerak mirror and Georg stool, relaxed light linen bedding and valence, (absolutely love this!),  Flowerpot lamp, Petits Papiers Mad et Len scented candle,
The Kinfolk Table. sitting room - le lampe gras wall light (also seen in Katerina's office), grey ruffled pillow (so lovely!), belly basket, Landmarks print.

You can keep up with Katerina's latest projects,  houses renovations, interior design ideas and whatever captures her eye in the interior world over at her lovely blog Only Deco Love and Instagram.

Got you in the Norwegian mood? You might also like to check out a cosy Norwegian home in the country, a serene home on a hill, the home of a Norwegian blogger - all beautiful in their own way!

Have a lovely day!

  1. Hello there, I'm a silent German reader and do normally enjoy every featured home. And I do like that home with it's light and easy feeling, but was somewhat annoyed by the triple appearance of "The Kinfolk Table", every time on a different place. Surely the home-owner has more books ;-)
    That detail makes the home for me overstyled and I'm not so sure anymore that someone actually lives in it! Sorry for being inconvenient and delivering critics as my introduction, but it does bother me...
    Thanks for all your work and all those beautiful spaces you continue to find! I really appreciate it and am lockig forward to every new post!
    Greetings Maria

    1. I happy to hear you like the homes I feature and thank you for taking the time to comment. The fact that the book features three times in this post is my fault - since many of these images were shot over a period of time for many different reasons and I happen to select these out of many, many beautiful pictures.

    2. Hello Maria! As Niki said these are all photos from different posts, most of them are weeks apart from each other so it was in fact merely a coincidence :) The specific book was actually on my living room table, then moved it to the bedroom and it has been at the exact same place ever since, though it is easier to see on my instagram :) Thank you for taking the time to go through the photos, so happy you liked my home!


  2. This space is stunning - do you know where I can get a mustard yellow blanket like this one?

    1. Since I am here I can answer that, my blanket comes from Hale Mercantile and Co :)

  3. This space is simply gorgeous. I've also loved Scandinavian interior and my partner recently started to be inspired by it. Luckily we visited Sweden last month and came back home with a lots and lots of home decoration, kitchen and bedroom supplies. Our home is finally starting to look just like we want it to !


  4. I like it. But there is a bit too much "white" for me. I do like how some of the colors do then to pop against the white backgrounds here. I think I do prefer a bit more color on the walls myself.


  5. I love how dreamy this space is! Always been a big fan of Katerina's work!
