Bjørnson chose the largest room on the 1st floor as his study. The windows had views of the farm and the valley. Here the writer and politician was inspired to write poems and documents.
You might also notice there is a large amount of space diagonally across the room. This was due to the poet’s habit of working. Bjørnson felt he could think better when he was walking, whether he was working on a new set of poems, a speech to be prepared or something else that was on his mind.
