The Cosy, Warm and Inviting Home of A Norwegian Artist

After a sharing a string of Scandinavian Christmas inspiration, I decided to take a break from the decorations today in favour of a very cosy, very lovely Norwegian home. The home in question is located in a beautiful 17th century building in Bergen and belongs to artist Marie Storaas, wife Ingis - a graphic designer, and their children Mille and Emil. Laid out over three floors, the unique living space combines Norwegian design with a hint of Italian and French countryside, giving it a wonderful warm and homely vibe. Photographer Gunn Kristin Monsen was there to snap these pictures. 

How beautiful! I absolutely love this home - such perfect feel-good inspiration with which to complete the blog week!

    Fun to see a home from my own city! The style of the house seems to match the way she dresses perfectly. But Ingis is her wife, not husband.

  2. Pretty much the entire house has that 'feel good' factor. Absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for including this slice of inspiration; much as I love Christmas, there is only so many candles and wintry scenes one can take when living on the other side of the world and it doesn't get dark 'til near bedtime.

  3. I love the way a dowel was inserted into the shelf brackets for extra hanging space--very ingenious!

  4. It's hard to pick just one standout feature. Maybe the staircase? The whole neighborhood is so charming.
