While photographing homes for my next book –The Scandinavian Home this summer we visited some beautiful places including Oslo, the surrounding fjords (one home was only reachable by boat!) and a mountainous region near Lillehammer and I was completely bowled over. Norway is the most beautiful country ever! I’m only too aware of the parts I haven’t seen and have to go back soon to explore. When I do, I’d love to stop by the idyllic country home of Marthe Holien Bø near Stryn on the West coast (once featured here). Marthe is often snapping corners of her home for her wonderful blog  and instagram feed. We were in touch this summer and sadly I didn’t get to visit in person, but she has kindly invited us all to step inside her home today…..

What a beautiful home, don’t you think?!

I particulary love the mix of exposed wood, white and black panelled walls and the layers of texture – sheepskins, linen, cable kit cushions and throws. It looks so cosy!

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Get the look from Marthe’s lovely home: dining – pick up a vintage industrial swivel chair here. Buy lovely vintage candlestick holders here, icelandic sheepskin throw. Sitting room –  House Doctor Molecular light, tree stump side table,  grey cable knit blanket,  prints from Desenio, Eames chair, wooden star.

Shall we take a peek inside some more Norwegian homes today? Like the serene home on a hill (this is the same beautiful home all decked out for Christmas) a charming home in green, grey and cognac (and the same home in a whiter shade – fab!). And finally, the perfect Norwegian home on a summer’s day (and at Christmas!).

Oh Norwegian’s, we love your style!

Have a lovely day!
