Summer school

Mary Beth Koeth is spending the quarter in Oslo assisting a photographer.  A talented, professional snapper herself she has gone to "summer school". With are four other students Mary Beth stayed in this adorable summer home in the forest at Nesodden. As she explains, "Robert Kristiansen who owns the home did such a lovely job decorating it. Before everyone unpacked, I went around to each room, styled it and then photographed it." Such a simply lovely way to spend the summer. Beautiful, evocative shots.

Oh, this is sooo pretty! Haha, us scandinavians - seems that we really do know how to decorate (although I do know some interiors that are rather ugly, here in Sweden as well..)

LOOOOVE your blog! Keep up the good work.

I'm in love with the living room. The soft pink hues, textured throws and patterned rug make the space elegant and very interesting.

Summer school in a house like this would be pure pleasure. Love it!

When I was little, I read a book about a woman who had a bed in a cupboard, with curtains, who kept hearing a noise all night, and would peer out between the curtains to see what it was. I always wished for a bed in a cupboard, thought that would be the best thing ever!
