Summer interiors and feng shui

Nature is coming alive and the colours seem to intensify with each passing day. The colours in the summer interiors are like the nature; vibrant and intense. Bring the nature inside with summery colours if you want to celebrate this wonderful time of the year. If you need to cool down, use light and smooth pastels. In Norway we are not always used to enjoying warm summers so I prefer a mix of both!

At the Gifts & Interior Trade Fair in Lillestrøm last week I fell in love with the beautiful Saddle Chair designed by Angell, Wyller & Aarseth. Combining a nest-like cosines to a solid structure, it’s is a modest and friendly chair.

David Carlson for Mr Perswall

Mr Perswall has, since its foundation in 2006, encouraged creativity and playfulness by offering innovative wallpaper designs. As a way to continue that effort Mr Perswall decided to ask a few of the most interesting creative minds of today to design a wallpaper of their own. I adore this lovely collection by David Carlson, there is nothing more beautiful than botanicals and blooming roses!

Mr Perswall asked – what’s your story? And the designers replied, using wallpaper as their canvas. One of them was David Carlson, appointed as chief of design at WallVision (owner of Mr Perswall and several other brands) two years ago. With this beautiful blooming collection that literally grew from his rose garden in Falsterbo, he gives us the opportunity to surround ourselves with something deeply personal of his. Read More

Blog Home tour spacious countryside home outside Helsinki. The home belongs to Ulla Koskinen and it’s her family dream home in the middle of the countryside! Cement, wood and glass comprise this simple yet stylish Finnish home.

Thanks to its cozy and natural interior it’s an extremely good winter retreat. When everything outside is covered with snow it’s a real pleasure to wake up in such a cozy environment. Spending evening time in a family room near the fireplace is even better. This family room is joined together with a kitchen and a dining room so even family dinners could be surrounded by the warmness of the fire. Although the interior design also follows contemporary trends. There are many elements that are ready to prove that. Read More

Tablo Table – A play between function and aesthetics

Normann Copenhagen presents the square Tablo Table. The popular Tablo range, designed by Danish designer Nicholai Wiig Hansen, has been expanded with a square and rectangular version. The essence of the Tablo Table is the interaction between two materials with very different expressions, which combined form a minimalistic and stylish design. The refined sharp edge and rigorous expression of the table top goes beautifully with the legs, giving the Tablo Table a clean, minimalistic look.
