Today we will have a look at four country homes through the lens of photographers, André Rider, Angus McRitchie, Michael Graydon and Stacey Brandford. My favourite home is the one captured by André Rider, though I'm also swooning over the Belgian style dining room by Stacey Brandford. I'd love to know which home you like best!
As you might know, Norwegian Magazine Bolig holds a contest each year to choose the best house of the year. In 2009 the winner was this country house in Hokksund. It consists of three buildings: a main building from 1889, a brewery and a barn.In 2006 the Kvernstad family restored and renovated all three of them.
Perhaps my Norwegian readers could help me with the translation of the words and signs that appear in this house. Please? I did use an online translator but unfortunately they are still quite unreliable.
The main house
The barn which is now used to hold parties.
Does the wording at the top of the stairs say something about coming home? But of course, it's French and it says "Just like your home" Thanks, Chapstik Fanatic!
"Kisses and Hugs and Love" Got the top sentence. Help with the one below?
Thanks to reader Krn I now know that the headboard says (not in Norwegian, but Danish) "Kisses, hugs and love, it is the world's glory"
And Krn expands: "Written language in Norway in the 19th century was the Danish language. This is not surprising to see this on an old norwegian bed."
This is the inside of the barn. Rather dark I guess.
Morning, morning. Another beautiful week to look forward to. My daughter is coming to visit us tonight and is staying for a week so I'm all happy and excited. That is if the Chilean volcano ashes are good enough to blow elsewhere and let her plane take off this time. Her flight last Friday was cancelled. So, keeping my fingers crossed so that she will be able to fly tonight, I leave you to enjoy this home in the suburbs in Spain. The first photographs show the rooms and the last part are close ups of some of the furniture.
