About Nordic by Maag

Me in my kitchen, from a shoot from my home that appeared in Norwegian interior design magazine Vakre Hjem & Interior, issue 07/2017. Styled by Tone Kroken and photographed by Yvonne Wilhelmsen.

Welcome to my webpage! My name is Maria Aarli-Grøndalen, I am an Oslo based journalist (BA), art historian (MA) and interior consultant/stylist.

I am a published journalist since 1999 and have worked as staff writer within a range of different publications. In June 2015 I set up Nordic by Maag, an independent media production company making media content for Norwegian press.

Oktober 2018: Jeg legger om – mitt AS er under oppløsning. Nå utvikler jeg manus på Cappelen Damms krimforfatterskole. Ellers er jeg  journalist for VG nisje.

My passion is writing human touch features for any type of platform. I deliver features, interviews, copy editing and picture editing, I do translations, shopping pages, blog posts and I administer social media accounts. I also direct and style photo shoots and I am available for interior consulting, events styling and public speaking on how-to-style.

I am a one-man-show, but when necessary I cooperate with bigger units. You’ll always be safe to get content according to order from me.

My work has appeared in VG, Aftenposten, Kamille, House Beautiful UK, Schöner Wohnen, Elle Decoration, Hem, Ljuva Hem, Interiørmagasinet, Vakre Hjem & Interiør, Bonytt, Bo Bedre, Maison Interiør, Boligdrøm, rom123, Elle Decoration amongst others.
