a cosy norwegian winter home

We are heading towards spring (hurray!) but before I start blogging about beautiful summer houses and sunny places I want to do one more winter inspired post.

This cosy winter cabin belongs to stylist Hanne Borge-Yngland and her husband Per. It is located in Kvitfjell, Norway.

The couple built the house themselves almost five years ago. They kept the house as open as possible, placing the dining room and living room upstairs “where the view is best” and where the heat rises naturally.

Raw materials such as concrete, reclaimed wood and accessories like sheep skin and horns were used to create a rustic and cosy atmosphere.

All these interior images were found on Skona Hem.

Some ideas to create a similar cosy atmosphere: 1. coat hooks from House Doctor, 2. stem vase from ferm LIVING, 3. mirror made from recycled wood from House Doctor, 4. table from House Doctor, 5. sheepskin rug from IKEA.

This duvet cover with a gorgeous Moose print is from Scandinavian label by nord and is available in various sizes.

  5. Gorgeous home! I love the concrete wall from the first photo & I have an industrial shelving trolley like they have in the lounge.
    Mine hosts decoration mags but I always thought it would like in the kitchen with some cream and off-white crockery
