Small budget big ideas!

By Colours, Flooring, Furniture, Good ideas, Interior styles, Kitchen, Lighting, My work, Patterns, Plants, Wallpaper No Comments

We all have big ideas when we want to renovate but it’s the tight budget that cuts the dreams down.

Creativity is key to renovation problems! It may just solve all your problems to achieve your dreams, even though you may have a tight budget.  Through good planning, creative problem solving and a well-trained interior designers eyes (which may down the road save you from horrible costly mistakes as well) can look at a challenged area and create it into something more fun and functional to be in and work from. And we all know that a practical and functional space just makes life so much more easy and enjoyable. Am I right?!

I find the tighter the budget the more creative we have to be.

This latest project RoomDesign has been working on involved space planning for several rooms in this apartment, re-inventing the kitchen and dining area, material choices, soft furnishings, lighting and colour scheme. The client did have a tight budget and wanted to prioritize a new plan for her small kitchen area that before had direct access into the bathroom!

She as well wanted a space with personality and something that packed a punch. Well we did that didn’t we? The wallpaper!

By moving the door to another area and taking away the wall between the dining room and kitchen, it gave better opportunity for a floor to ceiling storage cupboard and made a more inviting social space. The kitchen comes from Ikea and with great help from a super clever builder he helped us build the intricate cupboards and draws to maksimize every centimentre of the wall. The client loves this area and spends the whole time here.

And don’t you just love the wallpaper?! Its called Botany Banana designed from Lemon in South Africa and can be found via Photowall.no

Good as Gold!

By Bathroom, Bedroom, Black, Colours, Fireplaces, Kitchen, Livingroom, Wallpaper 4 Comments

GOLD is going to be hot hot hot this year in interior. Guaranteed!  So whether you sling gold together with white and pastels or rock it up in dark rooms you’ll be creating a space that oozes with style.  I think I’ll be opting for a spray can and blitzing up a few old vases or the like. An addition of wallpaper or a mirror in gold would be stunning. Whatever you do –do it with confidence and have fun!

‘Pip’ wallpaper

By Bedroom, Colours, Lighting, My work, Wallpaper No Comments

There is nothing more refreshing and positive using yellow in a combined guest/hobby room. Get those energy levels running on high!  I have just received some pictures from Elisabeth that was so lucky to win a competition of a few hours interior help from RoomDesign, through the used/recycling shop ‘DenGrønneBaljen’ (which is now closed unfortunately) here in Bergen.  Many ideas, tips and advice were discussed on how to furnish the guest room into a combined hobby room and some tips with colour and wallpaper for her bedroom.  See the results for yourself. I think it all turned out well don’t you think? And by the way for those who love  Helge Jordal, check out the last picture – Elisabeth has the most awesome picture of him in her entrance way!!! Thanks for sending the pictures,Elisabeth:-)

Brooklyn Tin by Merci of Paris

By Patterns, Wallpaper No Comments

Brooklyn Tin from NLXL is new wallpaper designed by Merci of Paris, France. It is designed to look like old painted tin tiles, found in ceilings and walls during the early 1900s. Love this very cool vintage and weathered looking wallpaper perfect for a wow effect in any room. In a hallway or as a headboard to your bed or why not try mixing a bit of vintage in a modern room and hang it on your ceiling! A bit odd you may say but it’s all about creating a tantalizing visual focal point in your home, right?

If it makes you happy…

Today I have to share a picture with you.

It just makes me want to smile.

Those cranes legs under the coffee table are just so gorgeous. It fills me with love that the bird pictures are scattered over the whole wall.     Now I’m sure a lot of interior designers out there would just shake their heads in disbelief.  But the colours in the room harmonize nicely, the rustic flooring grounds the room beautifully with the modern sofa and the old style wallpaper. So why not make a little wacky in-balance to tantalize the eye and make the room fun!

So if it makes you happy why not!

Perfectionism sucks.

I dig this picture today. It’s all in the way you put everything together that sets the mood in a room. It’s unexpected, unpretentious and coincidental. Let the interior you live in show what type of person YOU ARE and not somebody else. Forget the perfect room go for a room bursting with personality that tells me all about you. Loving it!

 

Happy day everyone.

All-in-white wallpaper

By Interior styles, Patterns, Wallpaper No Comments

I have been recently trying to find some wallpaper lately for a client, which has a 3 dimensional look. I came across this wallpaper with books and with wood paneling all in white.  Love it. It gives a room more depth, looks real and at the same time very elegant. Now this would be fun to use…

Happy weekend everyone and I’ll see you next week.

Taking wallpaper to the outside!

By Commersial design, Wallpaper No Comments

Awesome! What a brilliant idea from Farrow&Ball with their newly opened concept store in New York. They have brought the inside out side by treating the exterior walls with wallpaper. Wow -for a statement and it looks fantastic. It’s funny how one just has to think outside the box to make such an amazing and exciting feature for the sake of promotion. Though I can’t imagine it would last that long if it started raining though…but who cares it’s such a crazy fun thing to do…
