God morgen – as they say in Norwegian! How was your weekend? Here, it was a cold, snowy one but the sun was shining, and I actually found myself squinting in the brightness (you wouldn’t believe how much we long for that sensation here in Scandinavia in the winter!). But there can also be a certain beauty in the grey, and our friend Hilde Mork, is the master at catching it. I featured her lovely little Norwegian cottage twice last year, once over the summer solstice, and once at Christmas. And now that cabin has become her studio – and she and her husband and their children have moved into a wonderful cabin overlooking the fjord. The pair have carefully renovated the space over time – transforming the old, uninsulated structure into a modern living space. Here are some snapshots of life by the water in the Norwegian winter. 

Beautiful!
I love the simplicity – of the interior, it shows the power of vintage finds (old chairs, lamps etc) as well as wood and textured linen. 
Could you also while away a winter here looking out over the water?
I think it’d be rude not to put our feet up, and celebrate the beginning of a new month with a few more Norwegian home tours today, do you? 
Here are a few of my favourites: 
Wishing you all a great start to the week – and better still, a wonderful start to Feb. Can you see the light slowly returning where you are too?
