About Nordic by Maag

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.

My passion is writing about interiors, style, design and architecture 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.

In spring 2016 I launched online video classes on how to style your home like a pro. If you’d like a sneak peak and can read Norwegian, here’s a small pre course to warm you up – for free! Click on the link below to sign up, more than 1000 – one thousand – lovely interior Ninjas already have:

I want to know more about how to style my home like a pro.

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 Bonytt, Bo Bedre, Maison Interiør, Boligdrøm, rom123 and Elle Decoration to mention some titles related to what I love best.
