The Nordic style or Scandinavian is one of the most popular in the world. It originates from the countries of northern Europe (Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway) and emerged at the beginning of the 20th century. It is characterized by being functional, comfortable and simple.
In this post of the section “Instagram Houses“We present you a beautiful home decorated in the purest Nordic style. It is an apartment located in the center of the beautiful city of Aalesund on the west coast of Norway, near the Geirangerfjord. The apartment is in a “Art Nouveau” style building of the early twentieth century. As a result of its renovation, it has been transformed into a functional and contemporary dwelling.
The owners and responsible for the reform are Egil Farstad who works as editor and radio director of Ålesund, and his partner Simon Johnsen. Egil has decided to share in his Instagram account @egilfarstad the amazing result of the reform. Both continue to work constantly in the reform, looking for functional solutions and adding new things to the decoration of your home.
Nordic style: ordered spaces
This Nordic-style apartment has about 70 square meters and consists of two rooms, an entrance hall, an open kitchen and dining room, a bathroom and a small but useful laundry.
For the owners, its biggest attraction is the large open space with high ceilings of the living room that gives a feeling of spaciousness and fresh air to the apartment. The house is complemented by a cozy terrace where they grow a small garden in summer.
They have faced the limitation of space and budget by resorting to the Nordic style. The simple and functional spaces, together with the order of furnishing and objects, make daily life easier.
In the apartment, the typical colors of Nordic decoration: white combined with black and gray tones. The light wood floor and the green of the abundant plants serve to break the monotony of the monochromatic composition.
