To decorate the packages

The farm Blessomvollen is located in Vågå, and the owners inspired adventure and travel when they started renovating the old log building after purchasing the place a few years ago.

The result has become a place with contrasts between new and old, urban and rustic.

Christmas is celebrated in high-ceilinged rooms, surrounded by rough logs.

Urban Pace

The first thing they did was to remove the worn inner panel in the main rooms on the second floor so that the coarse logs became visible. The next step was to paint some interior details, door frames and small spaces in carefully selected colors that were refreshing, timely and stood for the solid character of the house.

The high-ceilinged main bedroom is the largest and most gifted room in the house. Here the wall behind the bed was painted in a delicate white color and the framing of the door in a contrasting, spring green denomination. On the bed is a true sheepskinn fell made by a local leather trap.

Urban Bath

The wall next door is the bathroom that strikes a completely different glass-clear tone, literally. For this, a tall and massive partition of glass building stone, as well as various modern porcelain forms an almost dramatic, urban contrast to all the rustic in the house.
