Happy New Year! I hope your 2024 has got off to a cracking start! I’m so happy to be back, here’s to a great year of drool-worthy Scandi inspiration! 
It’s no secret I think Norway is the most spectacular place on earth – and after Christmas, my family and I headed to the fells of Hafjell to blow away the cobwebs, ski, and generally relax by the fire. Temperatures reached minus 26 degrees celsius (-14.8 F), which shall we say, is fresh. But fortune favours the bold, as they say – and we wrapped up warm and headed out into the frozen landscape to njuta (savour) the vistas over the snowcapped forests and valley below. 
It’s a place I hope everyone can venture to at least once in their lifetime whether you’re into downhill skiing, cross country or simply relaxing by the fire! And if you do, I’ve found you just the cabin! Listed on Airbnb, I was immediately drawn to the the pared-down wood clad interior which has been kitted out in almost all natural materials to mirror the surrounding landscape. Meanwhile, a vast stone fireplace and a hot bath await to help thaw out your toes after a day on the trails. Ready to dream? 
What a beautiful cabin! Could you imagine staying here? You can find all the details on Airbnb here

Let me know if you think it would be interesting to feature a personal guide to Hafjell, Norway here on the blog – I’d be happy to share my experience as well as some tips for magical things to do in the area (ice bathing being one of them!). In the meantime, you can catch a glimpse of our trip in this instagram reel and my in instagram highlights if you’d like! 

How about taking a look inside a few other snowy mountain cabins today? Pull up a seat, pour a coffee and enjoy: 

I am so happy to be back blogging again after the break. As always I’ll be posting three days a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday). If you’d like to ensure you don’t miss a post, you might like to sign up to my newsletter

*And in other news – my new book Njuta, The Swedish Art of Savouring the Moment has now launched! Thank you SO much to everyone who has already ordered a copy, it really means SO MUCH. I hope the tricks and tips I mention in the book will help elevate each and every one of your days in 2024. Njuta is currently available through all retailers and libraries in the USA and Canada (if your local bookstore or library doesn’t yet have a copy in stock, please do put in a request!). The book is also available on Amazon pretty much worldwide and Waterstones in the UK. Although, I promise, there will be more languages and retailers to follow. 
Have a wonderful start to the week!
