1) Kjær” is the Norwegian word for beloved or dear and is pronounced similarly to the English word “care.” This beautiful illustration is by @velmakin.shop, check out their account to learn more Norwegian words!
2) How cool are these rings by Norwegian @skjerven_jewellery? They have the original iconic LOTUS pattern from Cathrine Holm on them and can be bought here.
3) I’m obsessing over the cute ghost from Danish brand Studio Arhoj here photographed by @stuen.th! They come on so many different colours & patterns and are so fun. You can find the whole collection of ghosts here!
I’ve been collecting my favourite Scandinavian finds on Instagram this month, which was a very inspiring & fun but difficult task. Want to find out more? Just click on a name to be directed to their full Insta feed for you to enjoy!
1)@emmeselle by Norwegian artist Mona Stenseth Larsen is Scandinavian folklore meets pop art. I love how she takes normal everyday objects from Norwegian culture and creates beautiful illustrations like this one;
2) Beautiful & elegant jewelry by @mumbaistockholm, a Swedish brand using only 100% recycled gold and silver and certified stones. They also offer customers the possibility of sending in old gold jewelry which they then remake into new and modern mumbaistockholm designs. A clever way to update your jewelry box!
3) Cute Scandinavian style DIY letters in beads by Danish @sostrenegrene. You can see how they are made here on their YouTube channel.
4)@sognehome is a Norwegian brand that I’ve followed on Instagram for a while now. I love the simplicity of their homeware, and this mug with “pause” written on (which means break) is the perfect reminder that sometimes all you need is to stop and just enjoy a nice cup of coffee or tea.
5) Because who wouldn’t want one Fjallraven Kanken backpack in each colour.. Find the whole range here.
As I’m such a massive Instagram nerd I though it was a nice idea to share some of my recent likes with you here on the blog. There are endless of inspiration constantly flowing through the feed, and I love having a little peek into people’s lives.
So here you go; scroll, click & like too!
