It struck us that not all of our lovely readers have visited Fjordnær before, and that we should perhaps provide some context.  In October 2009 we were lucky enough to have Fjordnær photographed by the fabulous and talented Anne Mie Dreves for a feature in BestMag.

Two views of our spread:

And some of Anne Mie’s gorgeous portraits…

Dining room with a fab plant pest poster (thanks Lotte!) that never fails to terrify kids.  (Now retired.):
