Last September I went home to Norway to attend the wedding of two of my dear friends Tuva & Mats. It was such a hyggelig celebration I thought it would be nice to share a few images from it here with you. If you follow me on Instagram you might remember some of my stories from the wedding, but finally, I can share some of the photographer Line Owren‘s images from the day. Be prepare to be amazed by the attention to details and beauty of this cozy, unique Norwegian wedding.

Located inside a greenhouse called Alchemilla at Rennesøy, it was the perfect setting for a laid back and fun wedding. The greenhouse was full of vintage pieces of furniture, greenery and even birds chirping which made it even more idyllic.

A mix-match of old traditional Norwegian china on the tables gave the setting a relaxed and vintage vibe. I loved the handwritten place cards on leaves created by the bride – a personal and nice touch and also a great way to tie it in with the nature theme from the location.

After the wedding, there was the option to stay overnight in a tent by Ryfylke Glamping. I have never experienced glamping before (if you don’t know what it is it is basically a portmanteau of glamour and camping), and it was such a fun way to end the celebrations.

And lastly, I wanted to share a few of the images taken before the ceremony. Congratulations to the beautiful couple!

(The stunning bouquet and flower crown worn by the bride and the groom’s boutonniere were created by Stilken & Strøm.)

June is here and summer is (finally) on our doorstep: time to slow down and take a little pause from the hectic everyday life.

But, before summer comes, I wanted to share some moments that caught my eye this month over on Instagram. I love looking at all your posts on Instagram of how you slow down and find #thatscandinavianfeeling wherever you are in the world, and it makes me so happy that so many of you are using and discovering my hashtag along the way. We are getting so close to 6000 images now!

I love May, it truly is a month I enjoy each year and wish would last forever. In Norway, we celebrate the national day on the 17th, which is probably the biggest day of the year for most Norwegians with song, laughter, ice cream, parades and lots of our national costumes (or ‘bunad’ as we call them) and flags on display. If you have not experienced it, I highly recommend visiting Norway around this time of the year as it is very unique and fun to see for yourself. This year I was not home in Norway, but I celebrated in spirit here in Italy. It is days like that where I feel a bit homesick even though I am happy where I am, probably something a lot of people who live away from their home country can relate to.

I am, however, soon – or shall I say in exactly 1 month – on my way to Norway for a summer holiday and cannot wait to see the fjords and eat lots of fresh salmon again. We are travelling together with another couple on a roadtrip around southern Norway, something I will make sure I document and share both here on the blog and on my Instagram account. Our biggest aim will be to see the stunning nature, pause and simply feel calmness.

Do you have any exciting summer holiday plans this year? Maybe heading to one of the Scandinavian countries? If you need travel advice or want to learn more about Scandinavia in general, I think you will like the June issue of Scan Magazine. If you are not familiar with this magazine, it can be read for free online and includes Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland. It is a magazine I write articles for, so you might see my name pop up here and there, and I also share my monthly design and fashion favourites in my columns. You can find all of the previous issues, including the newest one, here so you can dream about Scandinavia too. And if you do travel to Scandinavia, or find somewhere with that Scandinavian feeling, I hope you share it and tag #thatscandinavianfeeling.

Every month I feature four moments shared in the Instagram feed with my hashtag by you, everything from calm and cozy images of your homes to travel highlights, and below you can find this month’s selection. These monthly little catch-ups are a great way to get to know each other and to discover new accounts, so make sure you click through to see more of their beautiful feeds and give them a follow – let’s spread the love!

1 // @conniheselrickmann
“That Scandinavian Feeling is feeling free, safe and at home. In today’s world, you can’t take that for granted, and I’m therefor very grateful about that.”

2 // @wonderflakes
“That moment when everything whirling frantically around you stops. When you realize you’ve been moving too fast without taking a moment to catch your breath and think. The instant when calm and serenity hit you. That time when your heart and mind feel warm and you love yourself a little more every time. This is what that Scandinavian feeling means to me.”

3 // @home_by_charlotte
“That Scandinavian feeling means to me bright details, fresh flowers and stylish purity. By using light elements, such as wood and various other materials in the details, the room and pictures give me a sense of calm.”

4 // @ms_irena
“That Scandinavian feeling for me is taking the time out to pause, be still and enjoy the beauty of life.”

Join in and share your moments too by adding the hashtag on your Instagram posts. How do you find that Scandinavian feeling? How are you enjoying the little things in life?

In my new home tour series I am sharing a selection of different Nordic style homes in different cities and countries to show you how people get that Scandinavian feeling and look no matter where they are in the world. Last month we had a trip to Canada (see the post here), and this time we travel to Italy where Camilla from La Tazzina Blu is welcoming us into her hygge home.

Camilla is a popular Italian blogger that focuses on Nordic style and shares a lot of beautiful moments from her own cute little home. She has been running her blog La Tazzina Blu since 2011, a place where she shares all about her personal interior inspirations and the latest trends in the design world to her readers. Three years ago she also started working as an interior stylist for different brands with the aim that one day this will become her full-time job. Camilla considers the home her natural habitat and love to surround herself with beauty while following her own personal style, and I hope it will inspire you too.

Q1 // How would you describe your home and your interior style?

My home reflects who I am 100%: my style is both relaxed and fresh. I would love to be more minimalistic but I just can’t resist collecting objects, vases, cushions and other home-stuff… I think I have managed to create a cozy and hyggelig heaven with a mix of low-budget pieces of furniture and a few Ikea-hacks as well.

Q2 // What inspires you when it comes to interior and your home?

I love mixing old and new elements, playing with different styles, and expressing myself in many different ways in my home. I think that the combination of simplicity, honest materials, minimal shapes, neutral and soft colours always win.

Q3 // What is your favourite room / area of your home and why?

The living room is my ‘safe-place’: this is the room from where I work, relax, host friends and (overall) where the WI-FI is very strong!

Q4 // What piece of furniture or decor is most precious to you and why?

I think that the dining table is the most important piece of furniture in my apartment. It was once a ‘work table’ that my uncle and my dad had in their atelier. I love the idea that one day this table will be handed down to my children and all the future generations in my family.

Q5 // If you could start renovating or re-decorating your home today, what would you do differently?

Probably the hallway. I would like to re-organize it all, maybe with more added storage. I need to make the most of that space because living in 60 square meters – when you love shoes and clothes – is not always easy.

Q6 // What is your favourite current interior trend?

I am deeply in love with the dried-flowers trend at the moment. I love to see a nice composition with pampas grass, protea, hydrangea… Another thing that I am so into right now is this new ‘raw-ceramic’ trend: handmade and imperfect jars with earthy tones are my favourites.

Q7 // Why do you think the Scandinavian interior style is so popular?

I think that the whole world is fascinated by Scandinavian interior style because it conveys a sense of calm and harmony. Everyone feels welcomed and relaxed in that kind of atmosphere, and there is nothing better in my mind.

Q8 // What are some of your favourite Scandinavian interior and decor brands?

Bolia, Stilleben, Fritz Hansen, Muuto, Ferm Living, Normann Copenhagen, Oyoy, Iris Hantverk, Fine Little Day… And obviously Ikea!

Q09 // What is your best decorating tips for anyone wanting to create a Scandinavian style in their home?

Always choose natural materials, play with different textures and create a relaxing spot in every room.

Q10 // How do you like to relax, how do you hygge?

When I want to hygge at home I switch on my essential oil diffuser and play my favourite meditation playlist on Spotify.

Q11 // How do you find that Scandinavian feeling in your daily life?

I find that Scandinavian feeling in the simplest things: when buying flowers at the local market, lighting some candles at home when it becomes dark outside, laughing with my boyfriend on our (Scandinavian) sofa… and cooking dinner.

Hello June! Can you believe it is almost summer already? Living in Italy means that the hot weather starts early, and this weekend it already felt almost too warm for this Scandinavian girl (although I am not complaining.)

With summer comes the need for new accessories and little updates to my wardrobe. I was so lucky to be gifted these gorgeous, minimal sandals by the Swedish brand Gram, and after wearing them all weekend I’m already thinking they will be my go-to sandals this summer. Gram creates footwear that fills the gap between sneakers and traditional shoes. Their roots lie in the Scandinavian design aesthetic; design with clean lines and attention to details with each model being unique in its own simplicity. I love the fact that the brand is centred around the concept of weight, with each model being named after the first sample’s weight in grams – these ones are called 189g. I have the nude black leather model, but they also come in blue green leather, black leather and black nude leather.

The 189g sandals are so comfy, I was surprised by how good they felt even after walking all day. The circle shaped upper and double straps will shape smoothly around the foot, and the sole is made from soft memory foam for the ultimate comfort. With their casual but sleek elegance, they are perfect for lazy summer days as well as evenings out when dressing up.

Another new addition to my wardrobe is the Oliver sunglasses I was kindly gifted by Norwegian brand Harper & Brooks. These unisex frames have a classic and timeless look and feature a rounded shape and keyhole bridge. They are also equipped with a Polarised lens with UV 400 protection, which is so important when we spend so much time outside. Harper & Brooks care about quality, and all of their products are thoughtfully designed in Oslo, Norway.

To get you ready for summer, Harper & Brooks has created a discount code to get 15% off on any sunglasses or watches from their website. Simply browse their webshop here and use the code SCANDIFEELING at checkout.

*I was gifted the sandals from Gram & the sunglasses from by Harper & Brooks, but all the thoughts and opinions are my own.

This year, Warm Nordic pays homage to the acknowledged architect Hans Olsen to mark what would have been his 100th birthday with the launch of an exclusive, warm-hearted, and elegant anniversary collection.

Hans Olsen made his own special mark on the Danish Modernism of the 1950s with his consummately designed, characterful furniture. Today, several of his design classics are collector icons and sell for high prices at international auctions. His design legacy is a testament to the admirable philosophy that comfort, functionality, and aesthetic can coexist, and a shining example of how he and other talented architects and designers from the 50s experimented their way to the globally acclaimed Nordic furniture design expression.

The anniversary collection offers three original Hans Olsen designs: the Fried Egg, Gesture Chair, and Mr. Olsen – produced with FSC-certified wood, sustainable textiles from Kvadrat, and carefully selected colours with a light and modern expression. I am drawn to the pastel shades and vintage look of these items which ar just as current today as they were 100 years ago. What do you think?

The iconic Fried Egg is now available in a new sustainable version. The unique asymmetrical lounge chair designed in 1956, is the perfect item to add a bit of edginess to any design lovers homes. This roomy, comfortable chair was christened ‘Fried Egg’ because that is exactly what it looks like when viewed from above!

The new editions of the Fried Egg is available in two beautiful options, both of which add an extra sensuousness to the Fried Egg chair by combining three different colours on the inside, outside, and on the cushion. The fabrics are a combination of Hero and sustainable textiles, Re-wool and Merit by Maharam, in colours with a modern and light expression.

The anniversary edition of the stunning moulded Gesture Chair is constructed of black lacquered beech with leather upholstery on the back and a sustainable fabric from Kvadrat on the seat. The fabric, Merit by Maharam, is available in four exclusively selected colours with a modern lightness. The back and seat are made of FSC-certified wood on the anniversary edition of the chair.

The anniversary edition of the Mr. Olsen sofa and lounge chair have an elegant expression in with textile from Kvadrat – Re-wool – which excel in sustainability, sensuosity and quality. The frame on the anniversary sofa and lounge chair are constructed of FSC-certified wood.

Warm Nordic is a Danish design brand, which cultivates Nordic sensuousness and authenticity across the ages. Rooted in the impressive Scandinavian design history of the 1950s and 1960s, Warm Nordic bridges the gap between past and present, and between tradition and innovation. You cannot always tell whether a design from the 1950s was created today, or whether a design from today was created in the 1950s. That is always the case with timeless design, which never loses its aesthetic value. Original design classics from the 50s and 60s are brought to life in an integrated universe, which also features new designs that embrace the warm Nordic aesthetic and traditional Nordic craftsmanship.

Today, ferm LIVING is celebrating its favourite city: Copenhagen (or København as we say in Scandinavian). With a new, special series consisting of an embroidered cushion and tote bag, the Danish brand pay a humble homage to their hometown by showing some of the city’s most iconic places. “Copenhagen has been the most beautiful scene for our development ever since we started, and therefore we now feel that it is time to pay tribute to our hometown,” says founder and creative director, Trine Andersen.

Copenhagen has had a great influence on the brand’s development: the atmosphere, the thriving design scene and the city’s fantastic culture and history. Andersen and her team have handpicked their Copenhagen favourites, which adorn the Copenhagen collection. “There are so many things I love about Copenhagen that it is almost impossible to choose my favourites. But cycling on my bike through town – especially over historic Knippelsbro – is one of my favourite things to do. It gives a feeling of freedom, and from the bridge, you can enjoy the sight of the city. Another favourite thing about Copenhagen is the large selection of smørrebrød, which you can get in a myriad of variants in the many delicious restaurants that pop up all over Copenhagen at the moment,” she says.

The Copenhagen pillow and the tote bag are made of cotton canvas, and the unique embroidered artwork is made by hand with a special embroidery technique that gives the collection a beautiful texture. The collection can be experienced in ferm LIVING’s showroom, The Home, which is open to visitors this week during 3 Days of Design at their showroom in the heart of Copenhagen.

Find the whole Copenhagen series from ferm LIVING here.

Danish furniture brand Fritz Hansen recently opened its first store and showroom in Xi’an, with the ambition to become the biggest Danish brand in China. Designed by Jaime Hayon, it is the brand’s first in China and the biggest store yet with over 1000 square meters.

The store features ‘temple-like’ interiors with high ceilings, warm-hued walls and vaulted walkways. Hayon used the contrast of the height with the softness, beauty and the organic shapes inside to create a beautiful and unique showroom. When walking along the sweeping staircase and glossy green reception desk, you find 14 smaller rooms which display the Fritz Hansen collection in a more intimate and cozy setting. These are arranged in a more scenographic approach to avoid looking like a typical retail store and feel more homely.

I love the colour palette of warm shades like sage green, rose pink, plum purple, and slate blue used in the space along with the neutral tones and grey. The terrazzo flooring has an organic brass line which draws a simplistic face when seen from above. A beautiful detail!

Established in 1872, Fritz Hansen is one of the world’s leading design and manufacturers of exclusive design, recognized by their design icons such as the Egg and the Swan chair created by the legendary Danish Architect, Arne Jacobsen. With a design philosophy that focuses on being original, timeless, sculptural and pure, Fritz Hansen’s aim is to enhance their customer’s lifestyle and image with beautiful, original designs with superior quality.

Happy Friday, how are you all?

Since May has already begun (a great month in my mind), its time to look back and reflect on what April had to offer. For me, April is a month of hope and longing for spring and warmer weather, but also a time to really enjoy those little moments whether that is indoors or outdoors. This period always makes me think of the famous quote:

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
– Robert Brault.

And in that spirit, I thought I would share a little list of small things to appreciate. Because it is important to enjoy what really matters, those little moments between the big ones that sometimes get overlooked and can make a huge difference.

  • Waking up after a great night sleep, the kind of deep sleep that makes you feel fully rested and ready.
  • Coming home to a warm home after a fresh walk outside in the crisp spring air.
  • The smell of freshly baked cinnamon buns.
  • Hearing birds singing outside your window.
  • Sleeping in fresh, clean sheets.
  • Receiving mail in the post that’s not a bill.
  • Enjoying a lovely meal that someone prepared for you.
  • Finding the perfect spot to stop and enjoy the beautiful scenery on a hike.
  • Picking wildflowers to bring home and decorate with.
  • Coming home from work when it is still light outside.
  • When someone makes you the perfect cup of coffee.
  • Getting a surprise visit from a friend you haven’t seen in a while.
  • A compliment from a stranger.
  • Sitting inside listening to the rain outside knowing you don’t have to go anywhere.
  • Cuddles with your pet.
  • Singing loud to your favourite song.
  • Holding hands with a loved one.
  • A kind person helping you when you need it the most.
  • Opening the first page of a new book and knowing you will love it.
  • Jumping into bed after a long day and knowing tomorrow is Saturday (yay!)

What little moments do you enjoy the most?

I love looking at all your posts on Instagram of how you slow down and find #thatscandinavianfeeling wherever you are, and it makes me so happy that so many of you are using and discovering my hashtag. Every month I feature four moments shared in the feed by you, and below you can find this month’s selection.

1 // @nordickitchenstories
“For me that Scandinavian feeling is taking time to saver a meal, whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner. A table set, candles or flowers. Care and thought in presentation, now sit and enjoy. There doesn’t need to be conversation, people with whom you can sit at a table and have a delicious meal and not feel uncomfortable when none of you have anything to say is very special.”

2 // @mahtava.de
“Scandinavians love nature & design. Clean lines added with some colour into those silent sceneries… and so do I!”

3 // @nngiftsandinteriors
“Connecting with nature and bringing some greenery into my home, which I miss from Norway living in London. That feeling of spring and sunshine with longer days which instantly lifts your mood. Always having something beautiful in my vases.”

4 // @jojoodles
“That Scandinavian feeling is taking time each day to do something that brings me joy. Taking time to slow down, be fully present and enjoy all those little moments in between the big moments. Having a space in the home that looks inviting, a chair I want to curl up in. Making a home beautiful in simple and inexpensive ways.”

In my new home tour series I am sharing a selection of different Nordic style homes in different cities and countries to show you how people get that Scandinavian feeling and look no matter where they are in the world. After a little trip to Australia last month (see the post here) we are now heading to Canada to visit Kevin from Nordic Entrance and see his beautiful home.

Kevin was originally born in Taiwan, but due to his asthma, his family moved to Canada when he was just 7 years old. Once he arrived in Canada the asthma symptoms magically disappeared, something he is very grateful for. Now, Kevin lives in Vancouver with his boyfriend and currently work as a relationship manager at an international bank, but interior design is a big passion. Thanks to web shops he has access to Scandinavian design in Canada and the more that he sees, the more he is attached. Heavily influenced by Scandinavian and minimalist design due to its elegance and simplicity, Kevin’s home and style is a great inspiration for you all to fall in love with the world of Scandinavian design too.

Q1 // How would you describe your home and your interior style?

I would say that my home reflects Scandinavian minimalism, I love bright and airy spaces. I embrace light grey and white walls with muted tones for accents. My parents are both clean freaks so I was raised to be almost the same, just not as extreme. I cannot stand clutter, it almost always gives me anxiety. This fear forces me to keep clutter to the minimum.

Q2 // What inspires you when it comes to interior and your home?

I get my inspiration from many outlets, but I would say that the most would come from interior magazines and Instagram. I could spend a dangerous amount of time on Instagram just scrolling endlessly, but it’s amazing to see all the different designs from all these talented designers.

Q3 // What is your favourite room / area of your home and why?

My favourite room does change from time to time, but I would have to say that the living room is my favourite at the moment. Many people describe their kitchen as the heart of their home. For me, it would be my living room. Our slow mornings start here as we lounging the most in the living room. Whether it’s enjoying a hot cup of coffee, reading a good magazine, or just having a nice conversation over some wine and snacks the living room is a multi-functional space. We also entertain the most in our living room when our friends and family visit — the Formakami pendant is always a conversation starter.

Q4 // What piece of furniture or decor is most precious to you and why?

At the moment I would say that the Formakami pendant is most precious because it has a lot of meaning for us. We had our eyes set on this pendant for a long time, but it was out of our budget at that time. When we were able to get the light, it meant that we had reached our savings goal and we were at a much stabler place in our careers to commit to the purchase. The pendant was also a mini project for my boyfriend as I had no idea how to hang it up. He re-wired, attached a plug, and hung it up — it’s yet another sense of accomplishment. My living room is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows, so when the curtains are opened you can spot my unit just from the pendant — we love that.

Q5 // If you could start renovating or re-decorating your home today, what would you do differently?

I would definitely like to work on my kitchen, as we haven’t done anything to it ever since moving in around 2 years ago. I would probably change everything which would be a huge project. I used to love the two tones cabinets, but now I would probably choose all white cabinets that aren’t glossy like the ones I have at the moment. The lighting definitely has to be changed to something that fits more with our style, we had our eyes set on some pendants from Menu. Next, I would change the countertops to either marble or oak, because the ones I have right now absorb colour and stains too easily.

Q6 // What is your favourite current interior trend?

I am starting to dress my home with warmer tones lately, though I still really like light grey and white tones. Maybe it’s to invite the summer in, but I love warm textiles and accessories to bring in that coziness — to be honest I’m not sure if that’s a current interior trend, but I am seeing lots of warm tones on the IG grid lately.

Q7 // Why do you think the Scandinavian interior style is so popular?

I think that Scandinavian interior style is so popular because of how it balances simplicity with personal expressions. I think most of us live very busy lives, along with the work-life balance struggle it’s nice to come home to a bright and clean home with minimal clutter. I think in it way it becomes therapeutic, at least it is for me. You can show your personality through Scandinavian design with statement pieces that represent your value and style without over complicating it. I also think Scandinavian design makes it simple for everyone to enjoy a calm and peaceful home.

Q8 // What are some of your favourite Scandinavian interior and decor brands?

There are so many Scandinavian brands that I love, but my top favourites would definitely have to be Skagerak, Muuto, Menu, and Hay. To me, they really represent Scandinavian design, in their own unique ways.

Q9 // What is your best decorating tips for anyone wanting to create a Scandinavian style in their home?

I mention the importance of the connection between you and the space around you a lot on my blog. For anyone who wants to create a Scandinavian style, they have to think about how they want the room to make them feel. Understand the amount of space you have to work with so you can avoid clutter. Keep it simple so your style can show through.

Q10 // How do you like to relax, how do you hygge?

We love snuggling on our couch in the living room. It rains a lot in Vancouver so we are often buried under a throw with our hot drink in hand just chatting, reading, or enjoying some Netflix. (Make sure you check out his latest post about Bringing a Little Hygge into Your Space! )

Q11 // How do you find that Scandinavian feeling in your daily life?

I really value slow living, especially with my busy schedule. I find that Scandinavian feeling just by going back to the basics and understanding what is important to me when I am not at work. Which often includes valuable interactions with the ones around me and bringing nature into the home with plants — they make a big difference in mood. I think a lot of it is finding a mood that means most to you and you can create that with your surroundings.
