House Call: Norwegian Cabin in Kvitfjell

Issue 45 · Scandinavian Design · November 12, 2010

We like the combination of woodsy-hermit with a dash of industrial in this Norwegian cabin spotted on Emmas Design Blogg, via Skona Hem. Hanne Borge-Yngland, who owns her own design and interiors shop called Bolina in Oslo, built this home with her family as a winter mountain retreat. Her main concern was to create a space that felt cozy yet included all the conveniences of a modern dwelling and an open floor plan. To this end, she used as many natural and reclaimed materials as possible, roughed up the walls with a little cement to add texture, and layered the place with sheepskins and furs for added warmth.
