Norway – August 2019

Back in August (what seems like a lifetime ago) we headed back to one of my favourite countries, Norway. This was our fourth trip to Norway and I could go back tomorrow happily & find so many new things to do and see, for such a small country with so few daylight hours it has so much to offer, each time I visit I come back feeling so inspired. The cities and towns across Norway (in particular Oslo and the fjords) are filled with stylish interior shops, coffee spots & second-hand stores, one thing I particularly love is that everywhere has beautifully styled outdoor seating with candles, blankets and hides to keep things cosy.

 

 

Once out of the urban areas the scenery in Norway is spectacular, the water, greenery and rugged mountains give the most beautiful colour inspo with its greens, blues, greys and browns, all colours that I love to use in interior design projects both in my home and clients projects.  It’s such a peaceful place to enjoy family time, reflect and gain inspiration. We will be back again I’m sure, 10 year plan to have a bolthole/airBNB cabin on the fjords!

 

 

And then theres the beauty of the Norwegian wooden architecture that is so colourful & filled with personality. Alesund offers a beautiful look at Art Nouveau architecture with it’s decorative buildings on every street.

 

 

How does a Norwegian nature colour palette work in an interior design scheme? In my opinion…beautifully!
