My name is Ingrid Opstad, an award winning Norwegian writer, homebody & hygge enthusiast. I focus on the importance of slow living and being cozy, and I believe we can all benefit from ‘enjoying the simple things in life’.
Even though I am living in Italy, my Nordic heritage is deeply rooted in everything I do. As I am always trying to find a sense of home from my surroundings, I created the blog That Scandinavian Feeling – a place where you can find that Scandinavian feeling yourself, no matter where in the world you are.
That Scandinavian Feeling is a space I share my knowledge and love for Scandinavia; touching upon everything from interiors, design, lifestyle, travel to hygge. As you unwind to read my blog while maybe sipping a coffee in your favourite cozy spot, I hope you will find a feeling of coziness and calm. I want you to discover all the beautiful aspects of Scandinavian living while I help inspire you to create a home you truly love and find comfort in. I also want you to dream about travels to this amazing region where the fjords meet the majestic mountains, the northern lights dances in the sky and the happiest people on the earth find peace. So come with me on a virtual journey and discover your inner Scandinavian feeling.
If you want to see more or have a chat, you can find me @thatscandinavianfeeling on Instagram where I share snippets from my life and home.
