Reader's home - Margrethe's loft

I am in love with this loft apartment. It is the home of photographer Margrethe Myhrer (Jo featured her work here), her boyfriend Henrik and their baby daughter Alma, located in Majorstua, the west side of Oslo, Norway. Those beams! Those leather dining chairs! The concrete in the kitchen and bathroom! Margrethe's stunning photographs on the walls! AAAHHHHH!!!!! This is a little slice of heaven. And with that, happy Friday dear readers!

P.S. For folks in and around Ottawa, don't forget about the Ottawa Antique Show tomorrow and Sunday. I'll be there so stop by the Daff Design booth and say hi!

Hello I love you

You know when you see a photograph that stops you in your tracks? You know when you just want to crawl through the computer screen to be in that photograph? You know when you just love what you see? Then you know how I feel about these beautiful shots. By photographer Siren Lauvdal for Elle Decoration.


Margrethe Myhrer

Light so soft. Talent so bright. Delicate and strong. That's how I would describe the work of Norwegian photographer Margrethe Myhrer. Weaving dreams but keeping it real. Enjoy!

Taking the subway

Why be pedestrian in your kitchen design when you can ride the subway? Subway tile that is. Beautiful kitchen by Heiberg Cummings Design.


JVA summary

You may recall this stunning modern farmhouse Jo blogged not too long ago, or this almost upside down house in the dunes. They were the creations of Norwegian architects Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Arkitekter MNAL. I happened upon their website recently and found all sorts of other projects they designed that knocked my socks off. I thought I'd share with you a mish-mash of some of my favourite spaces and exteriors. So beautiful. (LOVE the angled window set-up in the 3rd photo - perfect hangout for my cats!)
