interior decorating blogs

I have written an article - kind of a guide - about blogs focusing on interior decorating. I think you might recognize some of them, and hopefully you will be introduced to some new ones. Enjoy!

Read the article (in Norwegian) over at

I asked all the bloggers to answers these questions:
1 What is your blog about?
2 Which interior decorating style do you like best?
3 What is your dream house?
4 Why do you blog?

Here are my answers:

1 Hei Astrid is about design, magazines, travel, food, fashion and photography. This is where I collect my inspiring finds and stories of everyday life in general and my life as a freelance journalist and copywriter specifically.

2 I like a personal mix of old and new, cheap and expensive. Design classics, gladly Scandinavian, mixed with thrift store finds and a bit of humour. Functionality and light are important. The base should be white with splashes of colour, for example in art, and natural materials like wood and stone.

3 My dream home doesn’t need to be very big, but the layout has to be optimal and functional for my family. It has to have lots of light and a nice view, and it should be close to both nature and the city.

4 I blog because I enjoy sharing my inspiration with other people, and I like the community feeling that arise between bloggers.

PS! Welcome to all of you who are new to Hei Astrid. I appreciate your visit :-)
