Tigerlilly Quinn: Scandinavian wanderlust

Scandinavian wanderlust



Follow Fritha Tigerlilly's board Scandinavia on Pinterest.

Scandinavia is one of the places I have always wanted to visit. Maybe its my childhood being brought up on the Moomins or their fantastic sense of interior design, not to mention the fashion and beautiful illustration.. Actually there is usually a 'scandi chic' theme to pretty much everything I am pinning to my Pinterest boards these days!

We all have the travelling bug pretty hard at the moment and Tom and I spend many an evening wondering where we could visit next. I love the idea of watching the northern lights, seeing the fyords..the colourful houses.

Why not check out my Pinterest board, or rather if you don't want to get wanderlust then maybe don't.

Have you ever been to Scandinavia?

I lived in Copenhagen for two years, and yes it's all true. My name is Emma, and I now have a Scandinavian chair addiction. :D

I sailed to Trondheim (half way up Norway) way way back when I was a teenager as part of the Tall Ships Race. I can't say I saw much interior decor but the city and the surrounding fjords were so beautiful and the memories have stuck with me for a good long while!

We love a bit of Scandi! The other half and I got engaged in Reykjavík and honeymooned in Copenhagen, Oslo and Bergen. One of these days we'll get to Sweden and Finland too. Everywhere we've been, we've had an amazing time, can't wait to be able to go back there. Some friends of ours moved to Bergen so we'll visit them and go on to explore the fjords.

Man, I've got wanderlust crazy bad now!

Oh goodness, what a fab board! We originally planned to travel round Scandinavia for our honeymoon but the £ was very weak back then and we realised the cost would escalate, in the end we had a far more relaxing time in luxury hotels in Cornwall but I still long to visit. I was born on Orkney and lived there until I was 9, there are a lot of Scandinavian links there and I think that's why I am so fascinated with the area. That and the Moomins, I love the real Moomin house on your board.
