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.

My passion is writing about lifestyle and interiors 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 Bonytt, Bo Bedre, Maison Interiør, Boligdrøm, rom123, Elle Decoration, Kamille, Aftenposten and Interiørmagasinet amongst others.
