Photowall proudly presents Nordic Moods – a collection designed by Norwegian Scandinavian Surface. Turbid structure walls, beautiful trees and geometric elegance. Scandinavian Surface fascination for nature is evident in the new collection and provides the magic feeling as the Bergen-based designer quartet is well known for.
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!
A collection of specialized tools, the Indoor Gardening Project is an urban green thumb’s dream. Designed by the Norwegian design studio Anderssen & Voll for the Canadian store Mjölk, which pairs international designers with local artisans to create small homeware lines.
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. Named for the cushions, which hang over the arms like saddles, and which feature useful pockets for TV remotes, newspapers or tablets.
The new Bolia 2015 collection is the most vibrant and creative ever. It has its roots in the new Scandinavian design, but this year with more daring and surprising details. The style is Nordic, but some designs are with a splash of daring colors, some stained in different grey tones, some with golden and metallic details and even some are inspired by the silhouettes of Japanese designs, with minimalistic and sculptural shapes.
The new Bolia 2015 collection consist of more than 250 new pieces which have been developed by Bolia’s talented designers and handmade in the finest materials with lots of care and love. The materials used are wood, leather, velour, metallic surfaces as brass, colored glass and marble and lots of gold. On top of this, you will find designs with unexpected new elements such as shimmer effects, Botanique elements, 3D veneer and even a print of the moon. I can hardly wait to see these products in the stores, in the meantime, I will enjoy these photos!
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. I love the simple and basic feel of it and the fireplace where the family enjoys their evenings during their winter break in this gorgeous 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

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.
The new Tablo Table square versions has just landed in stores and come in black and white with four feet of ash. They act both good alone, in combination with each other or in combination with the round tables for a contrasting look. With its simple design fits Tablo into most facilities. Read More
