I hope you had a lovely weekend? Here in Sweden, we celebrated ‘Valborg’ (Walpurgis), a traditional spring celebration. Across the country, bonfires were lit at dusk and choirs sang out while children toasted marshmallows. For the young, it’s also a big party night, so many were nursing sore heads yesterday! Do you celebrate Walpurgis night in your country too? 
Sadly, I have no pictures of Valborg to share with you today, but I do have a striking home tour from Bergen, Norway! Looking through the pictures took me straight back to the day when everyone was going for the monochrome look, and I was happy to find the interior of this house has survived the test of time. The property belongs to Nina Kristin Kristiansen, founder of Kamelone Design Studio and a restorative yoga instructor. Decorated almost entirely in black and white with a deep green accent, Nina’s punchy graphical home is full of contrast. Look closely and you’ll also spot iconic design pieces such as vintage Jielde lamps*, Eames chairs and a classic Stendig calendar. Welcome to the ground floor!   

How cool! And so different from other home tours I’ve shown of late. 
I especially like the timeless chequered floor in the hallway and all the plants (little envious of how healthy her lemon tree is looking; I might have to write to Nina for some tips!). 
Is there anything that stood out to you? Are you a fan of the monochrome aesthetic? 
See more black and white and monochrome homes. 
Have a great start to the week!
