Rosemaling or Rosemåling is Norwegian for "decorative painting", and is the name of a form of decorative folk art that originated in the rural valleys of Norway. Rosemaling is a style of decorative painting on wood that uses stylized flower ornamentation, scrollwork, lining and geometric elements, often in flowing patterns. Rosemaling is also common in Sweden, where it's called kurbits. Some lovely Dutch and Swedish designs have been added recently to this category.
