The Arctics have embarked on a month of living in other people's houses, waiting for our own to be ready. 1st of July is the magical date: It's all in the hands of builders and the almighty IKEA.
This week we're staying in my friend Bente's truly elegant flat. While we try not to trash it I'll take you on a housetour.
Some mid-century houseware are to be found, like beautiful Figgjo.
After a few years in a dayjob looking after her young son, she's now ready to take on the challenge as manager at a local gourmet restaurant.
In the winter time she's busy doing miles and miles of cross country skiing.
She loves art and persian carpets.
And she's my personal baker for birthdays. She actually enjoys baking, a mystery to me. Bless her. (I tried to make rhubarb pai the other day. I'll save you from the painful details).
The rest of her home here.
Have a wonderful week!
