With a dreamy collection of vintage elements, this home tour in Norway invites you in for a closer look. Using nature as her muse, Vibeke Svenningsen clearly sets her own trend!
Home Tour In Norway – Collected Vintage Style
When you live in the Scandinavian countries, cozy in decor is king. With short days and cold temps to contend with, layering is key to comfort. This beautiful home tour in Norway is timeless and showcases lots of old pieces that warm things up. I like to call this collected vintage style.
Vibeke Svenningsen and her husband live in the beautiful countryside of Norway.
“We have made our house ourselves with our own drawings. We wanted a big house for our two girls and made it open and practical.”
When the girls grew up and then moved out, the couple was suddenly left with a big space to change up and decorate. One of the girls’ rooms was made into a guest room. Vibeke painted the walls green with chalk paint. In addition to being a handy space for guests, she clearly loves this space!
“In the second bedroom I have made a studio where I can be creative and the wallpaper is my favorite. It is from Sanderson.”
Love Of Flea Markets
They love to visit flea markets all over Scandinavia. Not only do they search for antiques and vintage decor pieces, but for large pieces of furniture.
While Vibeke loves to paint furniture, some old pieces are left to their original state of raw wood or paint. She’s a master at styling for the seasons and you can see her daily shares on her Instagram account – VIBEKEDESIGN
Vibeke likes her home to be light and bright and love to fill it with antiques, especially old Scandinavian stuff. She often collects branches, flowers and moss from the woods near her home. Daily walks with her dog Maja allow for ample opportunity to search!
“I have just painted a old cabinet with green chalk paint in my kitchen. I really love the colors green and blue and use them in fabrics and items all over my home.”
Love Of Chalk Paint
She is inspired by flowers when she can find them and often uses various florals in her home and photos.
There is plenty of storage for all of her dishes and collectibles in the kitchen and dining areas.
Please head over and visit Vibeke over on her INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT. Her account was recently hacked and she’s trying to build things back up. I’m sure that she would love to have you follow her journey and also over on her blog HERE.
