A Magical Norwegian Mount Cabin - DESIGN SUMMER

A Magical Norwegian Mount Cabin

Just how much practise yous honey the audio of staying at a cosy mount cabin at this fourth dimension of year?! Last summer, James Gardiner together with I went to photograph the almost magical Norwegian hide-away for my book: The Scandinavian Home. Located close Lillehammer (scene of the 1994 wintertime Olympics), the delightful timber cabin belongs to Marianne together with Jon together with their 2 children who honey to ski inwards the wintertime together with hike or but hang out together with relish the nature inwards the summer.  It's difficult to imagine that when the pair outset acquired the holding it was completely run downwardly together with off the grid. "For the outset v years, nosotros had to convey our ain H2O together with ski downwardly from the nearest road," Marianne confided. The pair kept the master copy edifice together with created a magnificent extension, inspired past times a traditional Norwegian seter. Today it's a beautifully cosy, magical mount hide-away together with the perfect spot to sit down together with recover from a twenty-four hours on the cross-country ski tracks or but acquire away from it all.




Many of the items inwards the dwelling trouble solid - including the side tabular array past times the window, knitted chair cover, artwork, lamps, coat together with towel hooks and cushion covers  - select been handmade past times Marianne who runs Slow Design Studio. The mid-century armchairs were a flea marketplace position detect (source similar here).




Wall-to-wall seating is made cosy amongst the role of ex Norwegian Earth forces blankets, an abundance of locally sourced sheepskins (pick upwards similar here), together with a ton of cushions.  Clever in-built storage storage beneath the seating is used for candles, spare blankets together with everything inwards between.

An Ay Illuminate pendant low-cal hangs over the tabular array which is surrounded past times Tolix Marais chairs softened amongst sheepskins. One of Marianne's beautiful knitted lamps which she sells through her online shop tin hold upwards glimpsed on the wall behind. The flooring is made from concrete amongst underfloor heating. They tin turn on the oestrus together with lights remotely together with thence that it's already toasty when they arrive. So prissy together with welcoming!



The kitchen was designed past times Marianne together with made past times a local carpenter using onetime barn wood. If yous await closely you'll run into the leather pulls - which select been made from onetime reindeer reigns.  The backsplash is made from copper which has been treated amongst acid to give it an aged look. 


A huge sliding barn door tin hold upwards opened upwards to allow the warmth of the Sun to penetrate the dining expanse - or unopen to buffet the air current together with snowfall storms together with to a greater extent than oft than non leave of absence on the mutual coldness at bay. Simple pino tabular array together with benches furnish an ideal spot when the Sun comes out.

I was together with thence mesmerised past times the expanse that half dozen months later the photograph shoot, I returned amongst my family. Marianne together with her identify unit of measurement were form plenty to invite us to remain inwards the cabin.  The vista was every bit stunning inwards wintertime time, when temperatures tin plummet to minus 25 degrees celsius (minus thirteen Fahrenheit) brrrrrrr! The low-cal was crystal clear together with nosotros spent our days on the nearby ski slopes, intermittently diving into mount cabins to warm-up over a hot chocolate (the girls), together with glögg (the homo together with I!). Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 sauna dorsum at the cabin worked wonders to warm the cockles together with we'd pass the evenings on the long spot looking out over the panoramic views of the undulating snow-covered landscape. As the Sun went downwardly the valley was dotted amongst the glimmer of caput torches as cross province skiers made their means home. It's a site I'll never forget! Here are a couplet of snowy snaps I took during our stay....

The identify unit of measurement enlisted the aid of Marianne's sister, architect Benedicte Sund-Mathisen of Suma Arkitektur to extend the cabin together with practise frameless windows.
The master copy timber cottage dates dorsum to a greater extent than than l years. Poles at the side of the route aid snowploughs locate the route later a especially heavy dump of snow! I select to acknowledge nosotros got stuck to a greater extent than than ane time (even though our machine has specially adapted wintertime tires!) - together with I learned a few novel Swedish swear words inwards the process!!


Although the days were short, when the Sun shone the low-cal was crystal clear together with the girls loved sledging on the gradient inwards front end of the cabin.

Aaaaaah, how I'd honey to see this portion over again ane day.
