Annette's apartment in Oslo

Back in the summer I blogged the beautiful work of interior designer and photographer Annette Nordstrøm, so I was excited when Annette emailed the other day wanting to share with us her dream apartment in Oslo, Norway. I can see why it's a dream. It has fantastic architectural details like huge windows, arched cielings, exposed beams, old radiators etc. etc. Annette and her stylist partner Christian have created such a stunning home, utilizing many pieces of furniture that were inherited or found at auction, mixed with Moroccan details for an eclectic, global vibe. The neutral palette, mix of textures and patterns along with the architecture has me completely smitten.

Steen & Aiesh

Aina Sollie Steen and Tahani Aiesh are interior designers & stylists from Oslo, Norway and they rock my world scandi style. These spaces are so unassuming yet totally functional and gorgeous. I love the light, the dark, the neutral. And HELLO massive reclaimed wood mirror. I showed that to my husband and told him he HAS to make me for the next house. OH YES.

Sveinung Brathen

I thought I'd give you a short dose of eye candy this afternoon, via the fabulous photos of Norwegian photographer Sveinung Bråthen. I've got an emerald wall - the colour of the year says Pantone, some black - via a chalkboard wall in a dining room, a matte black kitchen cabinets (SWOON!), a black painted sections to highlight art (always been a fan of that technique), a black wall behind a black leather sofa (HOT!) and a couple of other goodies.

Krakvik & D’Orazio

Here's a little peek into the portfolio of Norwegian interior stylists Jannicke Kråkvik and Alessandro D’Orazio (while I listen to the crazy winds that seem to be trying to uproot my 12' wide house thanks to Hurricane Sandy).

Siren Lauvdal encore

A mood, a vibe, a certain something. Like a mumur, a ripple in the calm that builds and grows and reverberates. It's a flag, a marker, a passage that doesn't state the bleeding obvious but uses passion to tell the story. It's a photographer that takes light and bends it, traps it, caresses it to capture the mood, the meaning, the beauty. Images with an artist's eye. Photography by Siren Lauvdal. Gorgeous.
