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 AS, an independent media production company making media content for magazines and newspapers.
2019: Jeg har lagt om – mitt AS er oppløst. 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 and rom123 amongst others.
