Brilliant Blogs - That Scandinavian Feeling

Website header from That Scandinavian Feeling blog

It's been a while since we've done a "Brilliant Blogs" post and I thought it was about time. Also, I was looking for some tile inspo, and found exactly what I needed on That Scandinavian Feeling, so I thought I'd have a scout around and see what else this blog had to offer.

Well I certainly was not disappointed. That Scandinavian Feeling is a nordic lifestyle blog run by Ingrid Opstad. The byline for the blog is Hygge, Home & Travel, so pretty much exactly what I want to be reading!

Ingrid originally hails from Norway, currently living just outside Milan with her boyfriend and adorable dog (yes, don't worry, I'm not going to start featuring blogs without pets - the horror!). She also has great hair.

Ingrid's blog contains an absolute wealth of information and inspiration for anyone interested in Scandinavian lifestyle.

Everything from interiors inspiration and nordic travel guides, to design finds, book recommendations, little essays on slow living, and a wonderful selection of recipes. Check out this video for simple homemade ice cream. I will definitely be trying this one out.

I also particularly enjoyed Ingrid's recent home tour, not least because of the shots of the pooch! Her home hits that perfect balance between cozy, bright and minimal that epitomises the Nordic vibe so many of us are striving for.
