Today the weather gods have delivered horizontal snow mixed with rain here in Southern Sweden. Typically, we’re still on our bikes, but it wasn’t that fun getting to my studio I can tell you (I’m still thawing out!). But the light has returned, and that’s what gives us hope spring is just around the corner. And after spring comes the wonderful Scandinavian summer. And with that in mind, I thought we could all dream about this idyllic summer retreat in Norway today! Captured by Norwegian brand Slettvoll as part of their spring-summer campaign, the fjord side cottage will have you dreaming of days on the water’s edge under the midnight sun! 

The property has two separate buildings as far as I can see – a guest house (pictured top) and a main house – where the interior pictures were taken. With a setting like this, I’d be perfectly happy to wake up in either one – how about you? 
Sidenote: how beautiful is the outdoor furniture pictured above? You can find more info about it here

It’s not always warm enough in the evenings to sit outside (when we were sailing last summer on Sweden’s west coast, the temperatures varied between 12 and 15 degrees celsius (around the mid 50s Fahrenheit) for several weeks! BRRRR!) – but I wouldn’t mind, if I had a view like this. 

I love how a bench with built-in storage doubles up as seating at the table. 

The calm, white interior decor is earthy and pared back, allowing the view to take centre-stage. 

Pretty much all the furniture in the picture is from Slettvoll – more info here

Beautiful! 
Could you imagine spending lazy summer days here? 
Actually, scrap that, I’d happily spend a week there right now,  snow, rain, gale and all! 
In an ode to all things Norwegian today, here are some other tours I love: 
Oh, how I miss this incredible country! I still dream about my trip to Hardanger in 2019 with Skandinavisk  and dream about returning with my family! 
Have you ever been to Norway? If so, I’d love to hear about your trip!
