Maren's dark and dreamy Norwegian home - part 2 

Yes I really suck at editing but OMG people, Maren's house is SOOOOO gorgeous! I am so sad she lives in Norway because I totally want to hang out at her place and listen to her make music and play with her cat and dog. Anyway, I will just have to make do with her Instagram feed. But at least I have a little (ok not that little) piece of her in my home. Check it out at the end of this post!

The dark hues of Maren Ingeborg Gråblomst's Norwegian home 

I have met a bunch of very talented, creative and just all around awesome people on Instagram lately, who have some seriously cool style and have done some wonderful decorating in their homes. I recently decided that it was about damn time I share some of these inspiring homes with you here on the blog. And the first person I wanted to introduce you to is Maren Ingeborg Gråblomst. Her dark, inky hued home is jaw-droppingly fabulous, and she is such a skilled photographer that I envy each and every photo she uploads to her Instagram account @villabetulablog. Trust me when I say you must go follow her immediately. And read her blog Villa Betula too while you're at it. So back to Maren's house. Don't be fooled by the adorable pale pink façade. There is something totally unexpected behind that door!

 

I'm Norwegian and I live in a hundred-year-old pink house with my husband. Inside it's filled with bold inky dark hues, vintage and low budget solutions. We spend almost all our time here in our living-working mash up – making documentaries (plus short films) and music, and slowly building up a recording studio. I've also started to paint on canvas, which I sell plotted on high-quality canvas. I want to do it more and will expand my "art store" on the blog. One of the reasons for my blog and Instagram is the flow and mindfullness the painting, decorating and photography gives me.
But what's most important to me is probably our music, Gråblomst. We release our second album this spring, and I'm really proud of this production if I can say so?! Life sounds so good, but most days dealing with my mental health problem is my hardest job. My goal is to make these days fewer and fewer, and to use more energy on all the things I enjoy.

A summer house in Norway

Summer is upon many of us and I think I just found the ideal summer house. Yes, I can imagine taking the summer off work and hanging out here basking in the sun, swimming in the lake and enjoying the jaw-dropping views. It is incredible how architecture firm Jensen & Skodvin incorporated the side of the mountain into the home. This home is a true architectural masterpiece. (Thank you Silje for the link!)

Working on a Saturday

Time to make a stand. After all the workers united will never be defeated. It's all about working conditions! If we have to drag ourselves into the office on a weekend then please let it be as amazing as Oslo-based Reiulf Ramstad Architects' own studio. Those glass floors, the exposed beams, the old building! Sacrificing a Saturday could almost be enjoyable.

Happy Friday!

Because it's Friday, and because this is the last day I have guys in my house disrupting the peace and making a huge dusty mess (my newly stained grey floors look incredible - sneak peek on Instagram)....enjoy some eye candy from one of my favourite sources, KK Living.
