Located a little Southwest of Bergen, the Os Rosemaling style was mostly small, airy bouquets of “wildflowers.” Most enchanting about the bouquets is their casual arrangements and profusion of colors, leaving you with the impression of “joy of life.” A bouquet to brighten a table or corner in the darkest winter night.
