Norwegian Discoveries

While I'm on my bandwagon of Danish Design that I posted about here, I thought I'd also look into Norwegian designs.  I hear a lot about Swedish design, and the incredible design talent in Copenhagen, but hadn't seen a lot from Norway...I was happily surprised by what I found when I went looking at Nordic designs - especially the site Skonahem.  I ate it up!

There's definitely a theme here - neutral colors with a lot of white and lots of natural elements - no doubt inspired by the incredible surroundings!  Take a peek at what I discovered:

I love Norway - it's a beautiful country, friendly people, and low key rustic chic so tied to their environment. These are terrific examples and can't wait to see your find tomorrow.

I have to say Barbara, I've learned more about Norweigan design here than anywhere else! And I LOVE it.

I am totally addicted the Skona Hem! Lost many hours lost in front of it! I really love the rustic charm of Nordic design. I can't wait to visit one day!
