Loving the simple & stylish design of the new Norwegian passports created by Neue Design Studio. They based it around the lovely Norwegian landscape, highlighting the Norwegian identity with a timeless expression.

I have always thought that the Swiss passports were best, but I have to say that I am now very excited to be Norwegian and hoping to get my hand on one soon.

Seems like Norway is stepping up their design game with these passports & the new banknotes. Way to go Norway!

“Scandinavia is known for its love of minimal, functional design, and this attitude pervades every corner of this cool, tranquil scheme.” – Ben Spriggs

This dressing table & stool both from Bethan Gray is so beautiful, and my absolute favorite items from the SCANDI collection. The dressing table is made with solid oak and has a marble top and brushed solid brass handles. The stool is also made with solid oak and has a upholstered grey fabric seat.

OATLY

I’m a sucker for products with great packaging design, so when I saw the OATLY carton in the shop I just had to get it. I was even more excited when I found out it’s Swedish and actually tastes good.

The packaging & rebrand of Oatly was done by the Swedish agency Forsman & Bodenfors who treated the packaging as an advertisement space for the brand, playing on the fact that a lot of us do shop with our eyes.
