Balance & harmony

By Furniture, Interior styles, Livingroom No Comments

Balance and harmony is very important in a well decorated home. A good balance is as simple as having furniture and elements spread equally around a room. And a good harmony is how well the elements actually work together.

Colours have to be able to look and work well together. Textures are used basically  to create an exciting unexpected visual tension in a room. With patterns it can be a harmonic basic colour that will bind them together to create an awesome marriage of the two or more. Exciting!

Balance and harmony go hand in hand and I love this picture below. It shows a well balanced room with a cool injection of harmony with cool textures and patterns together. Nice!

The magics of one mirror!

By Interior styles No Comments

Some entrances are very difficult to decorate. But it can be as simple as putting one oversized element, in this case a mirror and wham suddenly the room brings an interesting focus point to the room. Small rooms are never easy to decorate but think big! Why not? Add a visual element that will distract the small room feeling and before you know what’s happened the room looks unbelievably cool and big. It’s all a visual trick!

Breaking the rules in the loo!

By Bathroom, Interior styles No Comments

We need to loosen up a bit. There is way too much boring icy cold loo’s going on in this world. All bright white blinding tiles, no colour and very sterile!   As I have said once about kitchens one time -we need to give as much respect to the bathroom or loo as much as the living room!

Bring some more personality in your home will add interest to make the space more loved and lived in. Not boring but different!! Put in a lovely rug, try a chandelier or create a wall of art like the picture below. Kick up the lived in feeling with flowers and plants and that will get rid of that hospital sterile look. Have fun, really!!!

Get your own original artwork.

By Art No Comments

We have to be original, right?  And by golly that’s not easy and can be frustrating.  But it’s the fun of getting to that perfect interior that makes it all worthwhile.  We have to create and be certain of our own style. Whatever that may be?  And I think an interior should say who YOU are and not who your neighbor is or what your friends are.  It’s the love for your home that brings the magic out in your decorating.

And today I’m thinking art on our walls. Do it big, oversize it, pick an outrageous colour, clashed it with the rest of your interior. Create a focus point on your wall. But original artwork is very expensive and hard to find…so why not paint your own supersized painting on a painting course. Janne from Urdihuset in Bergen here holds very cool painting courses if you like the idea of painting something BIG and original. She helps to mix and fix with you to create the grand masterpiece for your home!

See what artwork does to a room in the pictures below…

New home in Bergen

By My work One Comment

It has been a wonderful adventure and a long building process for this family from Os, Bergen.  And still a little in the packing out stage I have taken the opportunity to take a peak at the newly moved in home.

The best thing about coming in the early stages of building a new house are that you are still able to come with good practicable and functional ideas to the occupants desires and needs in the home. Keeping in mind that this home has a young person racing round in a wheelchair, it was just that, that everything had to be considered when buliding.  The parents didn’t want the house to look like a sterile institution so we worked hard on getting it just right inside.

Take a look…

RoomDesign has come with advice and suggestion on flooring, lighting, bathroom fittings, all tiles and design, colourscheme throughout the house, wallpaper, kitchen and stairs. A big thanks to Helene and Eivend that I have been allowed to help them on their building adventure!

Have a great day everyone!

The devils in the detail

By Kitchen No Comments

It’s true. It’s all visual detail. What’s the first thing you see when you go into a
room? What grabs your attention?  The more that’s grabs your eye the more tantalizing and fun the space is.  And bland is boring. Make more focus points and suddenly your space is way more interesting and shows more of who lives there.

I like the details in this dining room picture below. Many things are going on, pictures hung
up under a cupboard, books and things on and over the cupboards they have utilized
the wall to the max and at the same time personalising and using the wall as a feature point.

Good idea no?

Get decorating essential #4

By Good ideas, Kategori No Comments

Flowers, botanic and faux flowers are in! We’re past the eighties type of thing with the gruesome plastic faded looking flowers. We’re into faux flowers that you can’t see the difference from the real ones.

Take my flowers on my office desk. People look at them and think what a beautiful mix they are. I love it. I just have to giggle and say ‘THEY’RE NOT REAL!’  And why not mix it up. Make an extra fantastic focus point in your home with a small vase of fresh season flowers with the faux ones. Botanics are all the rage now too. Fig trees are very popular they will guaranteed lift a corner in your home.

One easy peasy decorating essential that will turn any space from drab to fab!
