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.

Important Storage

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.

    OMG! Thank you, Janet for posting this! I love her style! So much inspiration! Such coziness—it makes you want to move right in. I love her use of the autumn gold to warm up the serene greens and blues and as a knitter, I can’t help loving the fact that she uses her pieces in her stylings.

    1. Those sweaters really appealed to me as well Elizabeth! I have some baby sweaters tucked away that my mom knitted for me and now I think I may need to get them out next fall.

    2. I love the bird wallpaper. It is so pretty and add’s texture to the space. The neutrals keep everything warm and cosy and that outside building is amazing.

      1. Such a creative home and it’s one of my favorites of all time for the cozy factor!

    What a joy it was to read your post, Janet. We lived for a year in Norway and this post made me yearn for our Norwegian friends and homes. The colors and the connection to nature was so wonderful. The arrangements of fall leaves just beautifully blended in that fabulous wallpaper–decorating with the things you love, not just the ‘decorator’ polished look. Love, love, love that!! And, yes the Norwegian sweaters were spectacular! A feast for the eyes.

    1. Ahhhh, lucky you living in Norway for a time. This home is definitely a favorite of so many!

  12. I want to live in her house! It’s cozy and charming. My dream home.

    1. Her decor is simple and yet so effective Lois. Happy November!

  14. The wall paper is beautiful, it caught my eye immediately. All the chippy furniture, mixed with large glass pieces and nature really speaks to me. It is comfortable and imperfect, which to me makes it perfect! I love that little round rug under the table, it adds so much texture to the space.

    1. It’s just wonderful and I’m glad that you enjoyed it Diana!
