It was the first gray, rainy day of the fall and I decided it was a fine day to take you on a little outing with me.
I thought you would fancy a visit to a Norwegian home decorating specialty shop, ZanZ, in Lillestrøm right outside of Oslo. Their slogan in the window means "Not like the neigbors".
some glitz and glitter,
They had some handsome antique furniture and the oval dishes in pastel would make a lovely breakfast table.
A sheep skin makes for a cozy and warm seat. I love how they have tied up the silverware.
This would do nicely! I am a very practical person but I just adore chandeliers with all their crystal baubles...
Baby booties are a most irresistable, so dainty and innocent.
Those long lace decorated cones are filled with dried lavender.
I am curious about these, whether or not they are actually old milk bottles?
I have plans on making new pillows soon, but will probably go with bright and colorful. Had I not had children and been able to have a white sofa I would be tempted by these.
I would love to learn how to do nuno felting, the effect is so nice.
I know my little one would love these boxes for her small treasures.
And these are the types of things I really treasure.
I would love to hear how you liked our outing. I hope you found it interesting. Perhaps you learned a bit about Norwegian tastes. If this little excursion made you hungry for more Scandinavian interior you might check out the Danish House Doctor for more inspiration.
