The owners of this country home in Norway are happy to have two living rooms that have different functions: one is where they watch TV together, and in the second (one with a blue velvet sofa) the family spends the most of the time and it does not have a TV. Seating in this room is facing inwards to encourage communication – an ideal place to receive friends. Although the design of the cottage is in dark tones, the atmosphere in it is really cozy, while only simple natural materials are used in decor. What do you think of this home?
This warm wooden cabin high in the mountains of Norway is definitely not suitable for long stays, but to escape for a few days to recharge physically and spiritually – just right! The house, of course, is built entirely of natural materials, and most of the walls in it are of glass (why hide from such beauty!). Read your favorite book, tie winter gloves (one of the photos gives a hint) or just thing on the meaning of human being – this is an ideal place for a romantic soul!
Dark tones in combination with a light wood and the proper lighting can be as much cozy as gentle pastel shades. This cottage in Norway is filled with a warm homy atmosphere: candlesticks, lamps, textiles, natural decor, chalk board. In such a home you would want to plunge into pleasant domestic chores and rather start preparing for the upcoming holidays. Enjoy the photos!
In the XIX century, this gorgeous building in the Norwegian city of Bergen was used as the city stock exchange. Now it is a modern and trendy hotel Bergen Børs with 124 rooms. Actually, the hotel occupies not only this particular building but three house detached houses in total – the exchange itself and two former bank premises. The main task of the architectural bureau Claesson Koivisto Rune, which was engaged in the project, was to harmoniously combine all three buildings from three different architectural periods into a single structure. It was important to make the hotel modern but without losing the heritage of the past.
When Per was a child, he was very fond of playing outdoors, in the woods surrounded by trees. Now that the time has come to build his own home, he allowed the trees to be a part of his living. “No matter whether you are inside the house or on the terrace – the feeling that you are in the middle of nature does not leave you,” – Per says of her magnificent modern cottage, which was seamlessly inscribed in the landscape. Huge windows, wooden finishes, and a real tree integrated into architecture – this is a design with an idea of environment. Stunning!
