Homes of Norway

I've been drooling over these beautiful rooms
that I see on Face Book
that are in Norway.

 I love all these rooms for many reasons but...
the beautiful blues and greens make my heart beat a little faster.

The light touches of aqua are so pretty to my eyes.

 Isn't the color of these olden doors just luscious !!

Now, I may loose some blogging friends when I say
that I am not a fan of peeling and fading paint.
I know a lot of you just love that look but
the beauty of fresh, pretty paint appeals to me a lot more.

....again, I love the color of the door but not the peeling of paint.

I love this photo...
it's not a room I could live with but it's got so much charm..... soon as I saw this photo,
I ran and grabbed one of my straw hats and
here's where I hung mine.

How fun to have a hat, just hanging willy-nilly on my wall...
♥ ♥ ♥

This photo, with the beautiful color of the door..
the basket of flowers hanging on it...
the white subway tile for the back splash...
the wooden cutting boards...
it all makes me hyperventilate 😃
One of our grandgirls went to Norway a few years ago
and she brought back to us a book of that beautiful country.
I would love to visit there someday...
and maybe get a chance to peek at one of these amazing rooms..


  1. I am with you - the "chippy paint" make me want to pull out sand paper and new paint! I can imagine sitting on a chippy bench and getting chips of paint on my pants!! The colors and simplicity I do love - they don't seem to have any clutter (which I am guilty of!!) and I wish I could clear some of mine away!

  2. Not a chippy paint girl either. But I adore painted furniture and the beauty of the photos you've shared!

  3. There is so much to love in these photos. Like you, there’s a fair amount that makes me cringe. That’s just it. I am going to have to paint my jelly cupboard that John so nicely painted for me nearly a decade ago. 😊

  4. Norway often does many things that America really needs to emulate. Very brilliant folks up there.

  5. I get what you mean about the hyperventillating. Each and every one of these photos really hits all my sweet spots. The turquoise is my favorite color and I love the old look but very clean. Thanks for sharing these. I might have to save a few!

  6. I agree with you do not like the peeling paint but love the colors. Great photos. Thanks for sharing them with us. Have a blessed day and a wonderful week. Madeline

  7. Gorgeous rooms. I don't know why, but that old kitchen with the old range and the big double laundry sinks just stole my heart away :) So Much charm . . . as for chippy paint, I go both ways, but I do think sometimes it is way over done.

  8. Now I am drooling! We will just be one big drool face! Love all the pictures BJ. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  9. That stove!!! I want that stove! I want to go back in time. I want these looks. Beautiful.

  10. I love the beautiful brightness of the white and aqua together. Although chippy paint often makes an interesting and beautiful photo, I don't like living with it either. I have learned to ask myself, "but would I want to actually live with that in my home?" and often the answer is no. Chippy antiques can be beautiful in palatial, homes, but mine is just a humble cottage and I fear it would look quite run down and junky with chipped paint everywhere.

  11. BJ, I am like Lisa...I love that cook stove . I like old things ...but I too am not a big fan of peeling paint. If it's juts roughed on the edges, I can deal with that. LOL. Love the bag of flowers on the doorknob. Blessings, tomorrow is spring !!, xoxo, Susie

  12. I like the rustic vibe and that cook stove....I love it!

  13. You sound like my husband about the peeling paint. He worked his way up to be the superintendent of the paint shop and can't stand to see less than a perfect paint job on anything.

  14. Lovely photos, not my decorating taste, but I can appreciate them.

    God bless.

  15. I love these photos. The soft colours and the peaceful simple. Heaven.

  16. I absolutely adore all these rooms. The bathtub is to die for.

  17. Beautiful rooms, love the white table and OMG... I have a straw hat to hang:) Thanks for sharing, it makes me want to redecorate:) Enjoy your day dear B.J. HUGS!

  18. Oh my . . .
    First picture . . . the shades of blue . . .
    and in more . . . the soft green . . .
    Love the feel of springtime . . .
    Thank you for all this charm . . .

  19. I see why you are drooling! :)

  20. So pretty! You ALWAYS HAVE something pretty on here to come and see! I love chipped up paint on many things, but I also love a good fresh smooth coat of paint as well! Guess it depends on the object. I do love to be out in the fresh Fall or Spring air, painting away on one of my old thrifted treasures! I've painted alot of furniture in my day, LOL

  21. I'm with you and the shabby chic peeling paint look! I have a pile of straw sunhats tossed on top of my cupboard which always makes me happy, I like the idea of the basket on the door handle. I'll come with you to Norway!!

  22. Hi bj....
    I finally made it over for a visit...been soooo darn busy! But....GOOD busy!
    I love the blues and greens as well...and your hat looks adorable where you hung it! I might just copy that!
    Thanks for your lovely comments...I see quite a few familiar faces over here...I am in good company!
    Linda :o)

  23. I love these photos. The soft colours and the peaceful simple. Heaven.


  24. I love the look of chippy paint but I don't want it chipping all over the place. It's pretty to look at but it's not practical for my space. Thanks for sharing these gorgeous inspiration pictures. I'd love to go to Norway too.

  25. I really likes your blog! You have shared the whole concept really well and very beautifully soulful read!Thanks for sharing.


Way too much spam and people commenting that are stealing my space to post nonsense comments allowed.
So sorry but I have no other choice.
I love my blogging friends and most of all my family but these spam prone people are so rude and selfish have made my blogging not nearly as much fun..
