Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas
Posted in: Beautiful Homes, Cottage


Last week I posted about a cottage (you can see it here) and it got me thinking about starting to post a cottage every week during the summer. It’s a way to celebrate this beautiful season. This new feature will be called “Cottage of the Week” and I hope you enjoy it.

This “Cottage of Week” is located in Son, Norway and it’s where the interior designer Marianne Hafskjold lives. She bought this 1874 cottage and decided to bring it to life. She worked hard on it and made this place look as good as new, but kept all the the original colors of the old boards. She refinished the floors and made sure to keep the old charm while adding modern amenities. She says she loves the idea of reusing old things and transforming them into something she and her guests can admire. I couldn’t agree more and I really enjoyed this cottage, even from far away.

Take a look…


Living Room

This living room is as cozy as it could be and I love the chandelier she used.



Simplicity is what this cottage is all about and I think this kitchen looks perfect for this place.


Using every inch: the washing machine stays under the staircase and the river rock (pebble) flooring is really fun!

Master Bedroom

I really like how cozy this room feels but I’m not sure about the bed. I’d keep hurting myself on it!



Bring only the necessities.

A Bed & A Guitar

This is a perfect spot to play your guitar, have a guest over, or simply take a quiet nap.


Living the View

Strawberries, champagne, the sun and the blue sea. Ingredients for a perfect summer day!

I hope you liked this cottage. I’m excited about this new feature here on HomeBunch. Let me know what you think!

Wishing you a Sunny Day!

  1. I love it! What a pretty cottage. I love all the details, like the funky chandelier and the pebble floor.

    Excellent idea! I already know I’m going to love your cottage of the week posts. I can’t count the number of times I’ve googled “cottages” “coastal decor” etc. I have an inspiration folder on my computer with hundreds of images of cottage interiors and exteriors. I will own lakefront property one day and when that day comes I’ll know exactly how to decorate whatever abode is there.
    Hope you are feeling well and enjoying the summer so far.

    Great weekly feature, I look forward to it already! And I love that this cottage looks and feels like a cottage rather than a house. The look is relaxed. The easy and inviting style of each room lends itself well to kicking back. I an unwinding simply looking through the post!

    Simple, functional, and beautiful. The only problem is the master bed which seems way too confining. I’d much rather sleep in the “Bed & Guitar” room.

    really beautiful this cottage, probably best season to really enjoy it will be summer, but even in winter it looks cosy with these very clean white walls, very nice, perfect for a young family

    That’s a sweet little cottage, bijou and charming! I would need more wardrobe and shoe space, though! 🙂

    You can’t go wrong with that view! Summer in Norway is gorgeous and so is this home.

  17. Alexandra Brooks said,

    Glad ur doing this Luciane. Cottages especially beach cottages are my favs! This one is sweet.

  18. Elisha said,

    Beautiful. I really love the light and the simplicity of the rooms. The pebble floor is AWESOME! Love those! I am a mid-western girl by birth, but a scandinavian by heritage and I really believe my “likes” stem from that light, white, clean lines, love of the water etc. So a cottage like this appeals to me and the fact that it’s in Norway seems perfectly fitting.

    Hhhh – I love this cottage and could really a retreat like this right now!
    xo Sheila
